Apple discreetly changed the AppleCare+ plan earlier this month, which extends the warranty on Apple goods and provides coverage for accidental damage.
Previously, AppleCare+ covered two unintentional damages per year; however, Apple now claims that repairs are “unlimited.”
On Friday, AppleCare+ subscribers were emailed to remind them of the change.
What is new for AppleCare+ subscribers?
Apple’s email reiterates that devices covered by the AppleCare+ plan can now get unlimited repairs for unintentional damage rather than just two occurrences every 12 months. Of course, this is only true while the plan is operational and in force.
The business also claims that the additional safeguards are “free of charge,” and that users do not need to do anything to have infinite protection against unintentional harm.
Your AppleCare+ plan now protects your covered device from unlimited incidents of accidental damage from handling (instead of two incidents every 12 months) while the plan is active and in effect. Each incident is subject to the applicable service fees. This additional protection comes at no extra charge to you, and you don’t have to do anything.
However, it is unclear whether Apple is genuine about “unlimited repairs” or if the corporation has any real constraints in place to prevent exploitation.
AppleCare+ prices vary by device, and buyers can pay a monthly subscription or the entire amount. AppleCare+ costs $9.99 per month or $199 in full for the iPhone 14.
It’s worth mentioning that even if you have AppleCare+, you must still pay a service charge to Apple if your iPhone has to be repaired.
Theft and Loss Coverage with AppleCare+
Apple also offers a more costly AppleCare+ package that includes theft and loss protection. While this plan has been improved to include unlimited repairs, it still only covers up to two theft or loss events per year.
