Apple has released some notable changes to its AppleCare + protection plans for iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple Watch. With today’s changes, AppleCare + now covers two accidental claims every 12 months, plus a lower deductible for the AppleCare + Theft or Loss Plan.
In the past, AppleCare + only covered two cases of accidental damage every 24 months; B. Water damage, a cracked screen, or a cracked back. Today’s announcement means that AppleCare + will now cover two accidental claims each year, as first seen on Reddit, which is four instances over 24 months.
AppleCare + accidental damage coverage continues to have a service charge: screen damage requires a $ 29 deductible while other accidental damage such as water damage requires a deductible of $ 99.
Another change to AppleCare + today is that AppleCare theft or loss that is deductible for iPhones has been reduced to $ 1
Apple has been pushing AppleCare + a lot lately. Just last month, the company gave users more time to sign up for AppleCare + by expanding the eligible purchase window from 60 days to a full year. Along with today’s changes, Apple is clearly trying to make AppleCare + a more enticing option for hardware buyers.
