Don’t lose your AirPods Pro earbuds because it will cost $89 to replace each one. The previous version of AirPods costs $69 to replace. The new pricing applies to the wireless charging case, as well. To repair it, the price is $89 while getting a new replacement costs $99 out of warranty.

To avoid paying these fees, the obvious way to go here is by signing up for AppleCare+ for headphones. The service costs $29 and adds a total of two years to Apple’s hardware repair coverage (one-year standard) and its 90 days of complimentary support. With this plan, Apple charges $29 for each repair or replacement of all its earbuds and cases.

Also, it should be noted, AppleCare+ only adds up to two incidents of accidental damage coverage.

If you’re someone who constantly breaks or loses their stuff, then you should seriously consider AppleCare+. For just $29, that’s honestly not bad, and it’s a whole lot better paying $29 vs. $89 to get an earbud replaced.

If you are interested in the new AirPods Pro, they are now available from Apple’s website for $249 and will start shipping on October 30.
