Apple has recently updated its AppleCare+ plans for iOS devices, announcing service coverage for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad devices for travellers in any country where the AppleCare+ is offered, TechCrunch reports. So if you’re travelling outside Canada, you can get service for your device in any of the supported countries that include Austria, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, UK and US.
It must be kept in mind though that not all replacement or repair offerings are available in every country, since many countries don’t carry stock for certain iPhone models. For instance, The CDMA iPhone 5 is not available in Brazil and so it can’t be replaced there.
Previously, users would have to have AppleCare+ service for their iOS devices performed where they initially purchased the plan. But with this update, travellers will get more options for repair and replacement with their AppleCare+ plans.
Earlier this month, Apple also increased the AppleCare+ coverage price for deductibles in the USA and Canada, making it $79 (previously $49) for up to two incidents.
