If you spend more than a thousand dollars on a new phone, you may want to spend a little more to get it replaced if it gets stolen or toddlers (read: broken on the coffee table when you were not looking). Apple makes the terms of its extended AppleCare + warranty even better, allowing for more frequent replacements if you need them.
MacRumors reports that the new changes allow users to have a damaged device repaired or replaced twice a year. There are a maximum of four replacements during the typical two-year period for an AppleCare + policy, twice as often as before. There is also a flat deductible to replace a stolen or lost phone: $ 149 – previously it went up to $ 269 for the more expensive models. (Anti-theft and loss protection is an additional fee that depends on the device.)
Because these updated terms are available live on the Apple website, they may be retroactive for current AppleCare + members, according to MacRumor’s commentator rickyd10. However, I would not bet my iPhone on it.
