Apple has updated the support page for the smart HomePod column, which went on sale February 9, 2018.
What is known
On the official HomePod page, a pricelist for repairing and replacing the details of the "smart column" appeared. If the device is broken due to the "directness" of the hands of the owner, the repair will cost $ 279. We add $ 20 on top and we are not far from the cost of the new HomePod ($ 349). Replacement of the power cable will cost $ 29, which is democratic, given their strength.
Not everything is so bad
The company also offers to pay $ 78 for the extension of the AppleCare warranty. Perhaps this will save a lot of money if the house has children or restless animals.
The price of fixing Apple's machinery has always been, to put it mildly, surprising. The company professes the practice of replacing the device with a new one, and a similar pricing policy pushes the customer to such a decision.
