Summary Box: IPhone insurance now available

THE COVERAGE: Asurion's new policy will cover iPhones that are lost or stolen, or even damaged. That includes cracked screens even if the phone otherwise works.

THE COVERAGE: Asurion's new policy will cover iPhones that are lost or stolen, or even damaged. That includes cracked screens even if the phone otherwise works.

THE COSTS: $12 a month, with a $199 deductible for the latest model.

THE BOTTOM LINE: Asurion says the insurance offers peace of mind. But Mike Gikas, senior editor of Consumer Reports, says that given the chances you'd actually need coverage, you could end up paying more than the phone is actually worth if you lose it later in the contract.
