Since the beginning of the year, we’ve seen a huge increase in the number of gadgets being insured with us. We’ve put together a list of the top 6 items we see insured every day and a breakdown of the monthly insurance for each item and the cost to purchase a new one.

iPhones (all models) – iPhone have always been known to have smashed screens since they first came onto the market, because of the glass screen they used for a long time most people has had a cracked screen on their iPhone at some point in the last 15 years since their release. We’ve depicted the differences between Applecare and insurance and have left it down to you to decide what’s the better choice for you.

We’ve seen a huge increase in all of the gadgets above being insured, but we’ve also seen an increase in overall product insurance as technology becomes more advanced and items are becoming more and more fragile with time. They contain lots of parts which make them easier to replace than fix and this is where insurance can be vital.
