We have some good news for iPhone user
Apple keeps on pushing the new updates and features to iPhone and iPads and in the recent development, they quietly pushed an update to its AppleCare+ smartphone insurance program today that extends the purchase window for iPhones from 60 days to one year. The change, reported first by MacRumors and confirmed with a support rep, is not yet showing up on Apple’s official product page for AppleCare+. But if you go to Apple’s eligibility tool and input your serial number from the iPhone’s settings panel, you should be able to see a new purchase option so long as you purchased the device within the last year.

The new change in policy brings the iPhone’s AppleCare+ options in line with other devices like the Apple TV and Mac. Apple hasn’t officially updated its AppleCare+ website to reflect the changes, but a senior support rep confirmed them to MacRumors.

According to the report, the new extension only applies to the iPhone. Owners of the iPad and Apple Watch still have to buy AppleCare+ within the first 60 days. The change is retroactive and applies to all iPhones purchased in the last year.

The senior advisor said the extension only applies to the iPhone, and it is retroactive, meaning iPhones sold within the past year qualify for AppleCare+ now. Multiple sources insist that the one-year AppleCare+ purchase window applies to the iPad, iPod touch, and Apple Watch as well, but we cannot confirm this info yet.

AppleCare+ for iPhone also provides 24/7 priority access to AppleCare advisors via chat or phone for up to two years after the device's original purchase date. Without the plan, iPhone owners are covered by a limited one-year warranty and 90 days of complimentary telephone support.

AppleCare+ costs $129 for most iPhones, and $99 for the iPhone SE, and extends an iPhone's warranty coverage to two years from the original purchase date of the device, and adds up to two incidents of accidental damage coverage, each subject to a service fee of $29 for screen damage, or $99 for any other damage.
