Apple reminds customers about unlimited AppleCare+ repairs

Earlier this month, Apple quietly introduced some changes to the AppleCare+ plan, which extends the warranty on Apple products and also adds coverage for accidental damage. While AppleCare+ previously offered service for two accidental damages per year, Apple now says repairs are “unlimited.”

On Friday, the company began emailing AppleCare+ customers to remind them of this change.

What’s new for AppleCare+ customers

The email sent out by Apple reinforces once again that devices covered by the AppleCare+ plan can now benefit from unlimited repairs for accidental damage instead of just two incidents every 12 months. Of course, this is only valid while the plan is active and in effect.

The company also says the extra protections come at no extra cost, and customers don’t need to do anything to get unlimited protection against accidental damage.

Your AppleCare+ plan now protects your covered device against unlimited incidents of accidental damage from handling (instead of two incidents every 12 months) while the plan is active and in effect. Each event is subject to applicable service fees. This extra protection comes at no extra cost to you and you don’t have to do anything.

However, it’s still unclear whether Apple is serious about “unlimited repairs” or whether the company has any practical limits to prevent abuse.

Pricing for AppleCare+ varies by device, and customers have the option of paying a monthly subscription or full price. For iPhone 14, AppleCare+ costs $9.99 per month or $199 full price. It’s worth noting that even with an AppleCare+ subscription, you still have to pay a service fee to Apple if your device needs to be repaired.

AppleCare+ Theft and loss

Apple also has a more expensive AppleCare+ plan that covers theft and loss. Although this plan has also been upgraded with unlimited repairs, it still only covers up to two incidents of theft or loss per year.

More details about AppleCare+ can be found on Apple’s official website.
