Window to purchase AppleCare+ for the iPhone is extended to one year

Window to purchase AppleCare+ for the iPhone is extended to one year
Apple has made a significant change to extended warranty AppleCare+. Previously, those who purchased an Apple iPhone had 60-days after buying the handset to add the AppleCare+ plan. Starting now, that period of time has been lengthened to one year. For example, a person who had purchased an iPhone last December would be ineligible to purchase AppleCare+ after February. Now, with the change, this particular iPhone owner would have until the first anniversary of his/her purchase to spend the $129 in order to purchase the extended warranty plan. We should point out that this is the pricing for the Apple iPhone 6s, Apple iPhone 6s Plus, Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus. The Apple iPhone SE can be covered for $99.99.

So what are you getting with your AppleCare+ purchase? According to Apple, the extended warranty provides subscribers with :

  • 24/7 priority access to Apple experts via chat or phone
  • Mail-in repair: Mail in your iPhone using a prepaid shipping box provided by Apple
  • Carry-in repair: Take your iPhone to an Apple Store or other Apple Authorized Service Provider
  • Express Replacement Service

AppleCare+ cover the parts and labor required to repair your iPhone, the battery and any accessories that came inside the box. The plan runs for one-year and covers two incidents of accidental damage. The service fee is $29 for screen repair, and $99 for other issues that need to be fixed. AppleCare+ also will connect you to an expert who will help you troubleshoot software like iOS and iCloud, along with native apps like FaceTime, Mail, and Calendar. AppleCare+ can help users find the correct answer to questions that they have about connecting their iPhone to a wireless network.


To sign up for AppleCare+, your iPhone will have to be examined at an Apple Store, or the device will have to subject itself to a remote diagnostics testing. Click on the sourcelink for more information. Note that the Apple support page has yet to be updated with the new one-year window.
