AppleCare debuts for iPhone
Apple now offers the AppleCare Protection Plan for iPhone. The plan, which costs $69, extends Apple’s repair coverage to two years from the original purchase date of the iPhone.
Whether it’s purchased from the Apple Store or an AT&T Wireless retail store, the iPhone comes with one year of hardware repair coverage, and, according to the details of AT&T’s service contract, up to two years of technical support. The $69 AppleCare plan expands the hardware repair coverage for an additional year.
The plan guarantees you of genuine Apple replacement parts, should your iPhone require physical repair, and also permits transfer of the plan between owners. It covers the iPhone and iPhone Bluetooth headset and included accessories.
As with AppleCare on other Apple-branded hardware, you must purchase the AppleCare Protection Plan within your original one-year warranty.
