Hardcore iPhone case-maker LifeProof has today released a new insurance scheme it calls “Total Water Protection Program”.
The new program is designed to take LifeProof’s protection to a whole new level. Confident in the protection of its cases, LifeProof’s scheme, you only need to pay a one-off fee of $10 to get covered. If, within one year of buying a LifeProof case and registering with the program, your iPhone or iPad sustains accidental water damage whilst inside the case, LifeProof will repair or replace the device.
The program can only be used once, and you must use the case in conjunction with all provided instructions. There is a small fee ($50 for iPhone and $75 for iPad), for the service, but LifeProof will even send you a new case too!
The scheme is only available in the U.S., but all the details can be found at LifeProof.com, where you can also find the links to purchase all their available cases and sign up to the plan!
[UPDATE: For those of you who read this when newly posted, we got our pricing wrong. The cover is only $10 up front. There is NO monthly recurring fee. This should ease your concerns of it costing a little too much.]
