THE 9to5Mac today had access to an internal Apple video in which Tara Bunch, head of AppleCare, announced that three new countries will now sell / accept the AppleCare + coming soon. Just them: Brazil, Turkey and Spain.
This is something we have been waiting for a long time. Originally launched in 2011 (check out more details in this article), at the time of the iPhone 4s, AppleCare + doubles the warranty on iPhones (and iPads) for two years and allows users to pay an affordable fee to receive a new device in case of accidental damage not covered by the warranty. Recently, it was also released for the Apple Watch and saw improvements in its battery coverage.
As we explained in this article from 2013, Brazilians traveling to the United States can buy AppleCare + without problems for their iPhones, but the benefits of it only work there. Soon, when the plan is officially launched in our country, that will finally change.
Apple's idea is to simplify the whole process for those who buy their products when traveling abroad. AppleCare + is currently available in the following countries: Austria, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Singapore, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States.
