Before iPhone 4G releases, insurance claims could increase

Many of us assume that we will see the release of the Apple iPhone 4G in June or July, and according to an article on Macworld that is when insurance claims could increase. Supercover Insurance said that the same thing happened when the iPhone 3GS was launched last summer.

According to the insurance company, the amount of iPhone claims increased by 50% when apple introduced a new handset in 2009. We are not sure how much truth there is in this story, but it would make sense. For those wanting the new iPhone 4G when it is released, please do not try to do something illegal to get it, you could end up getting yourself in trouble.

In the article it suggests that iPhone owners would often inflict abuse on their handsets, these include blows with a hammer to being driven over by a car. These are extreme ways to try and get a new iPhone. It is individuals like this who cause our own insurance plans to increase.

iPhone owners are 60% more likely to take out insurance than any other handset, do you insure yours?
