In addition to its slew of other releases, Apple on Tuesday opened up its AppleCare+ support service to its line of headphones. Starting today, you can added AppleCare+ to any pair of AirPods or Beats headphones for just $29.
“Our specially trained Apple Support Advisors are experts in using Photos to transform pictures from good to amazing—and they’d love to show you how in a 30-minute guided phone session,” Apple announces.
Apple’s extended warranty is generally poor value for money. Since MacBook Pro is basically non-repairable, DIY and third-party repairs will be very problematic, and don’t get me started on out-of-warranty Apple repairs. With that in mind, it only makes sense to insure your costly purchase with the AppleCare+ accidental damage coverage.
Service coverage for the 42mm Apple Watch Series 2 models experiencing battery problems such as swollen or expanded batteries causing the display to burst open has been extended for three years after the original date of purchase.
The extended AppleCare+ warranty for HomePod will add two incidents of accidental damage from handling, each subject to a $39 service fee. It won’t cover cosmetic damage that does not affect the speaker’s functionality.
Want to know the warranty status of your Apple device? The Apple Support app is great for fast troubleshooting or getting in touch with Apple staff. Still, another feature stands out as the unsung hero: find out any of your devices’ warranty status, including AppleCare, in no time.
T-Mobile said today that its JUMP! upgrade program and Premium Device Protection now include free AppleCare+ for iPhone and iPad because “the best devices in the world deserve the best protection and care.”
Both T-Mobile’s Premium Device Protection (formerly known as Premium Handset Protection) and the JUMP! upgrade program now come with AppleCare services for eligible customers who recently purchased a new device.
As first noted by MacRumors, Apple now lets you buy extended warranty coverage for your iPhone up to twelve months after your device purchase.
Previously, customers had up to 60 days following an iPhone purchase to buy an extended AppleCare+ coverage for their phone. This information, originally provided by “multiple people familiar with the matter”, has been subsequently confirmed by a senior AppleCare advisor and other sources.
