Of course, you should always read the full agreement before buying a warranty or insurance. To transfer an AppleCare plan, you must provide the buyer with your purchase document (reception), plan confirmation and contract, and you must also notify Apple by email, fax or mail. Apple must know the plan`s contract number, the device`s serial number and the new owner`s contact information. Detailed information can be found in the terms and conditions. Some services and repairs are covered by AppleCare plans. Check the terms and conditions of some plans to see which support services can be included in your Apple products. In the general conditions of technical assistance for remote access, you will find specific provisions for your country. Participation in Apple`s training and certification programs depends on compliance with program conditions that are or were in effect at the time of the certification exam or training. If you update your phone after one year, your two-year loan will start again, but you still get the second year of AppleCare on the new phone. Read the terms of the iPhone upgrade program for more details. The iPhone upgrade program is a loan, so again, be sure to read all the fine print before you sign up.

Update 16.09.2015: Apple has updated AppleCare`s terms and conditions and includes two cases of accidental damage per year. There is a special AppleCare with the flight and loss plan, but it`s only for iPhone. This plan allows for two incidents of accidental damage, theft or loss coverage. If your new iPhone or iPad is suitable for AppleCare, you`ll see a login request at the top of the Settings app. So suppose you`re laying your iPhone around the corner, which breaks the screen, but also if the case is tilted so much that Apple can`t just fix the screen – it`s a $99 repair. If the screen breaks, but the rest of the phone is relatively intact, $29. The defect warranty applies to the phone as well as to the battery and to the headphones and accessories provided. Random damage can include almost anything, such as water damage, falls, overflows, your child pours paint into Lightning Harbour – as long as you only have two incidents (or less) during the two-year coverage period. Keep in mind that buying an AppleCare plan often means you need to complete a diagnostic test on the device. Finally, Apple needs to make sure that you are not trying to buy a cover on a device that is already broken. Do it right now, just in case.
All AppleCare plans for the iPhone include two years of coverage and technical support. Apple no longer sells its own Apple screens, and AppleCare for Macs may seem like a bargain if you`ve already paid hundreds to have a laptop – or overkill if you`re an iMac user who`s never responded to a problem.
