Why You Should Buy AppleCare+ Before You Leave The Store

ZNet’s Jason O’Grady says there are important changes to Apple’s $99 AppleCare+ extended warranty program for iPhones and iPads, that you should know about before purchasing it.

O’Grady notes that while AppleCare could formerly be purchased any time during the device’s original one-year warranty period, only covered hardware and software failures, and it didn’t include physical damage, since Apple added the “Plus” suffix in 2011 the program has covered physical damage, and Apple will now replace your damaged iPhone — for any reason — for $79 per incident (up from the original $50), to a maximum of two incidents, and that AppleCare+ must now be purchased within 30 days of your iPhone purchase, and requires inspection of your iPhone and proof of purchase.
