AppleCare, and AppleCare+, has been around for quite some time. It’s one of the most standard features for Apple’s products up to this point. Apple spiced things up in 2018 by adding another option, AppleCare+ with Theft and Loss, to the mix. And now that special coverage option is available in a. couple of more regions.
For those keeping track of this sort of thing, AppleCare+ with Theft and Loss launched a few years ago in the United States. It has also been available in Japan and Germany. So, it’s safe to say this particular coverage plan isn’t widely available. But it appears that’s starting to change for the better.
As noted today by MacRumors, AppleCare+ with Theft and Loss is now available for customers in Australia and in the United Kingdom. The timing is certainly good, considering Apple’s launching the brand new iPhone 13 lineup later this month.
AppleCare+ with Theft and Loss is a separate coverage plan from the standard AppleCare+ option. The former option includes coverage for theft and losing your iPhone. With this coverage, Apple will provide a replacement for your device, with a maximum incident reports of two per 12 calendar months. You’ll also need to fork over a deductible to get your device replaced, which costs an extra £109 in the United Kingdom, and AU$229 per incident in Australia.
As far as general pricing goes, you can either pay £11.99 per month or £239 per year for AppleCare+ with Theft and Loss in the UK, or AU$15.99 per month or AU$319 per year. No matter how much you pay, you’ll need to make sure that you have the Find My iPhone feature turned on to be eligible.
