If you’re prone to accidents with your iPhone, Apple may have made your life a little less expensive. MacRumors reports that the company updated the AppleCare page on its website to state: “AppleCare+ now includes unlimited repairs for accidental damage protection.”
The information comes in the form of a banner at the top of the page. When you click on specific AppleCare+ packages, there is a bit more information. Each product covered by AppleCare + can be repaired as often as you need for a service fee. Previously the repair limit was twice a year.
According to Apple’s legal disclosure on Apple’s UK website, accidental damage includes “physical damage, breakage, or failure of Your Covered Equipment due to an unforeseen and unintentional event that occurs due to tampering (eg. drop of the Covered Equipment or by contact with liquids) or due to an external event (for example, extreme environmental or atmospheric conditions).” The website also notes that AppleCare+ does not cover theft or design flaws.
Unlimited AppleCare+ repairs are now available for iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, headphones, Apple TV, HomePod, and Apple Display. Service charges range from $29 to $299.
The update comes on the same day as Apple’s “Far Out” event that saw the unveiling of the iPhone 14, Apple Watch Ultra, Apple Watch Series 8, and AirPods Pro (2nd generation).
