Apple has announced AppleCare+ products for several models of headphones, such as AirPods, Powerbeats Pro, and Beats Studio3 Wireless. For $29, owners of eligible headphones get complete AppleCare+ coverage including accidental damage repairs. AppleCare+ for Headphones does not cover loss or theft.
AppleCare+ coverage for the latest iPhones is similar to last year's offerings. AppleCare+ extends warranty coverage to two years and adds accidental damage repairs for a fee. The top level of AppleCare+ includes theft and loss coverage for a deductible, in the event that an iPhone needs complete replacement.
AppleCare+ coverage, much like the standard iPhone warranty, eventually expires. Hardware repairs or accidental damage can be covered for up to two years from the original date of purchase with AppleCare+ plans for iPhone. For iPhone owners, the date of AppleCare or warranty expiration can be the difference between a minor inconvenience and a costly repair.
Apple's HomePod has arrived in homes around the country. Inevitably, these devices will be dropped, spilled on and otherwise damaged in accidents and mishaps. What's the best way to protect your HomePod? Repairs can be expensive, so owners may want to review AppleCare+ coverage for HomePod. Apple offers the plan directly, which can be purchased within 60 days of buying a HomePod.
AppleCare+ for the iPhone X costs $199 and must be added within 60 days of initial purchase.
Coverage includes two incidents of accidental damage, with screen repairs costing $29 and other repairs (such as back glass) priced at $99. AppleCare+ also doubles the warranty period from one year to two.
