Simply put: this covers things warranties do not
Electronic device insurance covers theft, drops, oopsies & uh-ohs
Some new smartphones now cost up to almost $1,000. (Obligatory pause to catch your breath.)
There's a good chance that you have (or know someone who has) dropped and broken a phone. In those cases, the manufacturer might say that “butter fingers” and accidental drops aren’t covered under the standard warranty. Often, the “standard warranty” is included when you buy your new phone or other electronic device, but only covers manufacturer defects (meaning damages they, not you, are responsible for).
That’s where a phone insurance plan (also called electronic device insurance) protects you. It covers cracked screens, liquid damage, theft and, yes, your butter-finger-aided drops. And, if you buy through Progressive, you’ll get an extra 5% discount.

Pay as low as $163† for iPhone insurance instead of up to nearly $1,000 for a new iPhone
That’s what it all boils down to if you have an iPhone: your two-year $163 premium + $25-$50 deductible vs. up to almost $1,000 (depending on make and model) for a new iPhone. Easy math, right?
