Apple AirPods are finally for sale! The in-ear buds ship ... at some point, but they're actually shipping! And now we know how much you'll pay to replace a lost one, an event that seems all but certain considering Apple's latest headphones have no wire.
As outlined on the Apple iPhone service pricing page and first spotted by , replacing a lost AirPod costs $69 in the US.
That's not quite half the full Apple AirPods price of $159 (£159.99, AU$229), but it's pretty darn close.
As for general repairs, Apple AirPods are covered under a one-year warranty, which takes care of defective batteries but not normal wear and tear.
Apple will replace batteries that lose capacity over time for $49/£45/AU$69 per AirPod, and other out-of-warranty repairs cost $69/£65/AU$99.
When it comes to the equally easily losable AirPods charging case, its repair and replacement prices line up with the buds: $49/£45/AU$69 for battery service, $69/£65/AU$99 for out-of-warranty repairs and $69/£65/AU$99 to replace a misplaced case.
