A new Coverage section in the Settings app
iOS and iPadOS 16.4 have a new Coverage page in the Settings → General → About section with the device’s warranty and AppleCare+ details in one place.
If you’ve purchased optional AppleCare+ coverage for your iPhone or iPad, this is where you’ll find details about it, in addition to the standard 1-year Apple warranty. It doesn’t provide coverage info for other devices, only for your current device.
You can also see coverage details for connected accessories like your Apple Watch or AirPods. “Coverage is only shown for this iPhone and Bluetooth-paired devices that can be covered by AppleCare+,” explains the description.
Before iOS 16.4, you could view limited information about the device’s warranty in Settings → General → About but there was no dedicated Coverage section and AppleCare details about connected accessories were unavailable.
This isn’t the only place to review your active AppleCare+ plans.
