Are AppleCare+ Agreements Worth It? Here Are 3 Reasons Why
One can never be too careful in handling electronic products, either they break, are plugged into an incompatible power source, or they just simply die out. Would any of the offered warranty extensions worth it?
iPhones have not been known to be on the "sturdy" side of the spectrum, and with its sky-high prices, a small bump to the screen or a slight fall from a minimal height, which can either produce a single-hairline crack, or a tear-jerking, spider-web like fissure, can cause a heart attack. But oftentimes, one gives out a sigh of relief after seeing that there are no cracks or dents after a such an incident. To help a buyers decide whether it is best to enroll on that AppleCare+ Agreement for $129, here are three reasons why.
AppleCare+ Extends Your Warranty for Two Years
Initially, Apple products come with a one-year limited warranty, which covers 90-day Technical Support and one-year hardware repair from defects. Upon enrollment, the warranty extends for two years, both for technical support and the repair coverage for hardware issues. This will give access to the Support Line, both chat and phone, and utilize them to learn more about the product, as well as, address any hardware defects that tend to pop-up after just one year.
AppleCare+ Covers Two Incidents of Accidental Damage from Handling (ADH)
There are protective cases, screen protectors and water-proof pouches that help one to feel more secure when handling delicate devices. But no matter how careful one is, it is never ensured that accidents that can cause a cracked screen or liquid damage, can be avoided. Enrolling in AppleCare+, grants the capability to have the device serviced for two incidents of ADH, $29 for a cracked screen and $99 for all other ADH claims. This can save $200 to $240 in screen repairs and $340 to $500 in other damages, depending on the device's model of course.
Express Replacement Service
The AppleCare+ Agreement also qualifies one for the Express Replacement Service where Apple can send a replacement device, of the same model and color. All that has to be done is to, contact Apple Support, and place an authorization hold charge on one's credit card which is the full value of the replacement device. The hold charge will be released once Apple has received the device within 10 days after receiving the replacement unit. The box that the replacement came with, which also comes with a prepaid shipping label, can be used to ship the defective unit back.
One can never be too careful and it would not hurt to set some precautions in the event of an unfortunate circumstance. Though the price for AppleCare+ may be a bit steep, it would refrain from the regret of having the device smashed by some unfortunate event.
