The purchase of the extended warranty as a whole went from $ 100 to $ 130 in the United States, and the exchange rate for an accidentally damaged device went up from $ 80 to $ 100.

This news was announced yesterday during the keynote and we covered it on MM Live, but it is worth explaining in more detail here.

In order to establish even greater loyalty with iPhone users, Apple created an ?Update Program? that allows them to change their handsets every year by paying a monthly fee (24 installments) that varies from $ 32.41 for the iPhone 6s from 16GB to $ 44.91 for the 128GB iPhone 6s Plus.

In the iPhone Upgrade Program, consumers choose their preferred carrier and receive an unlocked device, already with AppleCare + included.

Obviously, the novelty is very good but it starts only in the United States. Apple has already said it will be taken to other countries, but God knows if and when, and by how much to get to Brazil.

Another not very relevant change, observed today by 9to5Mac: Apple stopped selling the combo in AppleCare + for iPhone and Apple Watchtogether. Now, whoever wants to protect the smartphone and the watch will have to buy both separate AppleCare +.

But not much changes, as the combo it was no cheaper than the two bought individually.
