- AppleCare+ is an insurance option for iPhone, iPad, Mac and other Apple products, including accidental damage coverage.
- Previously, AppleCare+ was limited to two accidental damage claims per year.
- Apple announced that it has removed the two-claim limit, allowing unlimited accidental damage claims against AppleCare+ insurance.
AppleCare+ insurance no longer limits people to making accidental damage claims twice a year, which could mean people will rely on it more than ever.
AppleCare+ products previously required customers to pay the full cost of repairs for the third accidental damage to the device within a year.This limits people who frequently give up their iPhones, but expands to Allow “Unlimited Repairs” Meaning the pressure is now gone – despite paying for AppleCare+, fewer people will be forced to use broken phones. The same goes for the Apple Watch and other products.
“I think it’s great,” independent app developer Bishop Tell Lifewire via direct message. “I always buy AppleCare for my Apple Watch because I’m more likely to use it for all kinds of things.”
AppleCare+ coverage isn’t new, it was available on Macs long before Apple announced the iPhone in 2007. Today, it covers the iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, and even Apple TV and HomePods.Buyers can even protect their AirPods with AppleCare+, giving them accidental damage protection and Additional customer support benefits.
Especially for iPhone users, accidental damage to the case is critical. some people They even choose not to have a case on their iPhone because they have AppleCare+ and they believe if their iPhone breaks, they can fix it. This approach has become more feasible given Apple’s decision to remove the limit of two claims a year.
Two-year coverage for AppleCare+ for iPhone starts at $79, subject to deductibles. Replacing an iPhone screen costs $29, while other accidental damage can cost as much as $99. Considering that iPhone cases can cost upwards of $50, it’s perhaps easy to see why some people rely on AppleCare+ instead of wrapping their iPhones in rubber or leather.

For some, the real surprise wasn’t that people could make more claims using their AppleCare+ insurance, but that Apple didn’t take the opportunity to raise prices. “Unlimited repairs for the same price are a welcome upgrade,” Bishop said.
