Don’t break your new HomePod. That’s the message from Apple, which released details of its repair service on Friday as its Siri-powered smart speaker hits stores.

The HomePod is Apple’s much-anticipated answer to the Amazon Echo and Google Home. Priced at $349, the speaker promises high quality sound in a unit measuring just seven inches tall and 5.6 inches wide. A seven beam-forming array with individual drivers and precision acoustic horns works together with an Apple-designed four-inch woofer (packing 22 millimeters of excursion) and automatic bass equalizer. An array of microphones listen out for a “Hey Siri” command to invoke the A.I. assistant, and there’s even a microphone insight to judge the position of the woofer.

Early reviews have been positive, despite a turbulent development schedule. The company finally announced HomePod at its June 2017 developers’ conference, slated for a December launch. It unexpectedly slipped past this date to ultimately launch earlier this month.

If you do end up breaking your new smart speaker, the amount you pay depends on when you break it and how you want to pay:

  • Repairs covered by the included warranty are free. The warranty lasts for one year and comes as standard.
  • If you had the foresight to pay $79 for AppleCare+, you get an extra year of service and two years worth of phone support. This means repairs covered by the above are free for two years instead of one.
  • AppleCare+ also covers two incidents of accidental damage during the two-year period, charged at $39 each.
  • Repairs outside of the above scenarios cost a staggering $279. That’s just $70 less than the price of another new HomePod.
  • Shipping the HomePod costs an additional $19.95. This is convenient if you don’t live near an Apple repair center. Apple sends you a box through the mail to place your HomePod and send it away.

If you have pets or small children, you might want to opt for the AppleCare.

Elon Musk has a big plan to take Tesla private. On Tuesday, the CEO revealed his team of advisors that will be fleshing out the financial and legal issues being taking Tesla off the stock exchange, with a view to presenting a plan to the board’s team.

Musk will work with Goldman Sachs and Silver Lake as financial advisors, the latter of which helped Michael Dell take his namesake computer firm private in 2013 in a $24.4 billion deal. A source told Reuters that Silver Lake was working with Musk without compensation and has no plans to participate as an investor in the proposal. Silver Lake contributed $1 billion for the 2013 Dell transaction. Musk will also be using Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz and Munger, Tolles & Olson as legal advisors.

Is Face ID here to stay or will it remain a premium feature for only the newest iPhones? There has been rampant speculation about whether the facial recognition tech that Apple introduced with the iPhone X will ship with all or some of this year’s upcoming iPhone trio. Most recently, chatter from one of the company’s crucial suppliers has added further evidence that all three of the new iPhones will ship with Face ID regardless of their pricepoint.

Apple’s budget MacBook will enter production in the fourth quarter of this year, according to a Monday report. The rumored device, which may receive premium features like a high-resolution “retina” display, could offer an attractive price to new buyers. Previous reports suggest it could come in at under $999, making it cheaper than an iPhone X.

More than 3,000 tech analysts, journalists, and smartphone enthusiasts crowded into Brooklyn’s Barclay’s Center Thursday for the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. As teaser footage of the smartphone looped on digital billboards and company representatives handed out wrist bands, the excitement was only slightly overshadowed by the fact that most in the building knew exactly what would be in the spotlight.

Apple’s cheaper iPhone is about to look a whole lot cooler. On Sunday, prolific smartphone leaker Benjamin Geskin shared new photos of the company’s upcoming 6.1-inch smartphone, which Geskin has referred to as the “iPhone X Lite.” The new device maintains the same stylings as the $999 iPhone X, but with an expected price point of around $700.
