AppleCare+ is Apple’s extended warranty program for their products which customers can purchase, applicable to any product. Now the program has expanded a new feature for Mac users in Canada.
One prominent feature of AppleCare+ is their accidental damage incidents, where you can pay a fee in the event you drop your device or it decides to take flight (it’s always the dog’s fault). This has been available for iPhone and iPad, but not the Mac.
But that changed last summer, when Apple launched accidental damage to AppleCare+ for users in the United States, and now Apple has extended accidental damage for Mac to AppleCare+ to users in Canada.
Apple Canada’s website for AppleCare+ now reads the program “adds up to two incidents of accidental damage coverage, each subject to a service fee of $129 for screen damage or external enclosure damage, or $379 for other damage, plus applicable tax.”
Apple’s website before yesterday:
…and after the MacBook Air and Mac mini announcement:
AppleCare+ covers your Mac, battery, accessories such as the power adapter, Apple RAM, AirPort, Apple USB SuperDrive and now two incidents of accidental damage.
Prices for AppleCare+ for Mac ranges, depending on the model. AppleCare+ for MacBook/MacBook Air is available for $279 and for Mac mini it’s $119.
