Today, I thought I`d break down the differences between AppleCare Theft and Loss (I`m now going to call it AC-T-L) and Cellular Carrier AppleCare Services Agreements (now called ACS) and the protection plans of the other two carriers that don`t offer ACS agreements. In this comment, I guess we`ll look at an iPhone Xs 64Gb and rate it at current unblocked charges ($999 tax-free). Prices are different and the value will vary depending on the device chosen. I also assume that you plan to stay with your carrier and not change. If you change, I think that buying AC-T-L via Apple is automatically a better option, because it stays with the device, even if you change network operator. This comparison does not take into account the value of the AC/AC-T-L agreements as part of the iPhone upgrade program. I will only look at the big 4 carriers, although only two of them (T-Mobile and Sprint) offer ACS agreements. While AppleCare proves that the best value is, I think if you think you`re going to damage your phone more than twice over the life of the phone, ACS chords may be a better option. You will receive the same deductions as the AC and you will have additional fees at a higher cost. 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. Apple Pork offers global coverage for most Apple devices (iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Mac, iPod, Apple TV and Apple Displays). Service options vary from country to country, but each AppleCare service is always provided by licensed technicians with real Apple parts. Yes, Apple offers AppleCare for the iPod touch.
It is $59 to extend the guarantee from one year to two, with two years of technical support. Up to two accidents per year are covered for a service fee of $29, plus taxes. The Apple TV itself, the Siri Remote and even the Apple AirPort router you use if you bought it within two years of the Apple TV. Technical support by phone or chat includes support for setup, wi-fi, iCloud, renting or buying on iTunes, AirPlay and even connecting to third-party streaming services. AppleCare for Macs also contains two incidents of accidental damage per year for a lower service charge than you would pay for repairs outside the warranty. If you only damage the Mac screen or case, it`s $99, and all other damages tax $299 plus taxes. Originally, Apple only offered AppleCare (AC) and if you stole or lost your device, you should buy a new iPhone. The airlines have decided to combine AC with a variety of services, including loss and flight protection, for a fee. One of the best benefits was the fact that you could pay monthly to Apple instead of a prepayment.
However, on September 12, Apple announced AC-T-L and a monthly payment option for both AC and the T-L version. This allows customers to have more freedom of choice. AppleCare for all Apple Watches covers up to two incidents of accidental damage per year. The service fee is $69 for regular and Nike models, and $79 for Editions and Herms, plus taxes. Yes, you can. If it is within 30 days of purchasing the plan, you will receive a full refund minus all the services you have received. Outside of 30 days, you receive a cancelled refund, minus all services, less the $25 fee or 10% of the proportional refund, depending on the decrease. Call Apple under 1-800-MY-APPLE to ask how.
