Whenever Apple releases new products, it also takes the opportunity to tweak / readjust the AppleCare their. Have no idea what this is? I explain.
What AppleCare +
AppleCare is an extended warranty that the company offers for its products. Typically, appliances with a one year factory warranty; With AppleCare, this warranty skips to 2-3 years (depending on the product).
A few years ago Ma left the AppleCare Protection Plan aside (in some countries such as Brazil it still offered, however) and began to market the AppleCare + which, in addition to the 2-3 year warranty, also offers two accidental damage repairs for a fee.
Note that when you buy a new product, you have 60 days To purchase AppleCare + after this time, Ma no longer allows the device to be protected by its extended warranty.
Now that the iPhones 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, O Apple Watch Series 5 it's the 10.2 ? iPad are among us, it is important that you stay on top of news if you want to buy a device abroad and wanted the maximum protection after all, although Apple does not market AppleCare + here in Brazil, it supports products that are protected by it. ?
AppleCare + for iPhones 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max
AppleCare + values ??for the new iPhones were exactly the same as those charged by the company in 2018, when the iPhones XR and XS / XS Max were released. The last readjustment happened when the iPhone X was released.
Here are the prices:
- AppleCare + for iPhone 11: $ 149
- AppleCare + for iPhones 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max: $ 199
The fees charged for accidental data repair also remain the same:
- Screen Repair: $ 29
- Appliance exchange: $ 99
AppleCare + for Apple Watch Series 5
AppleCare + values ??for the new smartwatches also remain the same:
- AppleCare + for Apple Watch Series 5: $ 79
- AppleCare + for Apple Watch Edition and Herms: $ 149
The fees for accidental damage repairs are as follows:
- Apple Watch Series 5: $ 69
- Apple Watch Edition and Herms: $ 79
AppleCare + for 10.2 inch iPad
In the case of the new Apple tablet, the same charge for iPad Air and mini: $ 69. If you buy an Apple Pencil from your iPad, the accessory will also be covered by the extended warranty.
The repair fees are as follows:
- iPad: $ 49
- Apple Pencil: $ 29
New: AppleCare + Headphones
Further expanding the AppleCare + catalog, the company now offers protection for AirPods and some Beats headphones.
Paying $ 29, the user is protected for two years against any problems with their headphones. If you need to make an exchange for accidental damage (you are entitled to two exchanges), the rate of $ 29.
These are headphones that may be covered by the extended warranty:
AppleCare + with Theft and Loss
Apple also offers the option called AppleCare + with Theft and Loss, which in addition to the extended warranty and accidental damage repairs, includes protection against theft and loss of equipment.
However, it is not recommended for those who live outside the United States because it only provides coverage for theft and loss of the device in the US, meaning no use buying an iPhone in the US with this AppleCare, return to Brazil, be robbed and look for the company to receive a new device. It will not roll.
It's worth noting that when buying AppleCare + for the iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch, you have the option of making a one-time payment or paying monthly, as if it were a subscription (which ends up a bit more expensive, but you pay in installments). ).
The problem is that, in our experience, the "installment payment" method does not work for tourists who are touring the US, for example only for American citizens, even. But it doesn't hurt to try. ?
