A coverage that, at least at this time, is only available when purchasing an iPhone and not other products. And, also for the moment, it only applies to devices that the Californian company sells through its website. Although, yes, it is not available in normal coverage, but rather a new modality is added with its corresponding price increase.
What it will cost you to cover a lost and stolen iPhone with AppleCare+
Normally, and as with any other mobile purchased in Spain, an iPhone offers a 3-year warranty, although with a minimum coverage for problems that are not related to misuse and are related to manufacturing defects or the like. Nevertheless, AppleCare+ is responsible for covering repairs and replacements for accidental damage or caused by misuse of the terminal.
The coverage time of this Apple extended warranty is also 3 years, although in this case it is not free, but already requires an extra for its hiring, in addition to having to pay an excess each time it is used. from service. well with him new service theft and loss It is not an exception, since it requires paying more also when contracting.
Taking an iPhone 13 as an example, one of the brand’s latest smartphones, we note that the company offers the ‘classic’ AppleCare + for 169 euros (or 8.49 euros per month) covering what was previously covered. For theft and loss coverage the price is increased to 229 euros (or 11.49 euros per month). Besides, and as it already happens when it comes to some other repair, the client must pay 129 euros to have a replacement iPhone.
It is true that if we look at that price to pay, both when contracting the service and when executing it, it may seem expensive. However, it is considerably lower the cost than having to buy a new iPhone. Be that as it may, and as always happens with this type of service, you must be the one to analyze whether it is worth having such coverage or not. For now, it is appreciated that at least there is the possibility of covering this type of events that are so annoying among consumers.
