Good news if you are thinking of adding AppleCare+ to your new iPad Air or iPad mini. Apple is keeping the price of the additional coverage and extended warranty the same as it is for the 9.7″ iPad despite the larger display. Further, the new policy also covers the Apple Pencil, even if you didn’t purchase it at the same time as your new iPad. Like the new iPads, the new AppleCare+ is available now from the Apple Store.
Here are the details on the new plans for the new iPads
- Extends your iPad Air or iPad mini warranty to two years from the original purchase date.
- 24/7 priority access to Apple experts via chat or phone.
- Adds two incidents of accidental damage coverage, like a cracked screen or any other damage, each subject to a service fee of $49.
- Accidental damage to your Pencil for two years with a $29 fee per incident.
AppleCare+ is one of the best deals out there when it comes to protecting your Apple devices from accidental damage and extending the warranty. If you have a claim to make, you can take it to your local Apple Store or you can do it online if you live remote of a physical store.
