You Can Now Add AppleCare+ Up To 1 Year After Purchasing An iPhone


You Can Now Add AppleCare+ Up To 1 Year After Purchasing An iPhone

In a move that we imagine will be welcomed by those who upgrade their iPhone – every year, Apple is this month officially extending the period in which you can purchase AppleCare+.

The policy yet to be reflected on – but which the folks at MacRumors have been able to confirm with a senior AppleCare advisor, will see those who purchase an iPhone from the company given up to a year from the date of their purchase to add AppleCare+ protection.

That’s up significanly from the usual 60 days.

“Notably, the change is retro-active so if you purchased an iPhone within the last year, you are now eligible to get AppleCare+,” iClarified adds.

The new policy will reportedly also be applied to Mac and Apple TV purchases – too.

AppleCare+ for iPhone costs $129 in the U.S and provides up to two years of expert telephone technical support and hardware coverage, including up to two incidents of accidental damage, each subject to an excess fee of $29 for screen damage, or $99 for any other damage.

In addition, you’ll get 24/7 priority access to Apple experts by either chat or phone.
