Along with all of the other new announcements today, Apple also made some changes to its AppleCare+ coverage programs. Changes include expanding the plan to include customers in 3 new countries, expanding coverage to the iPod touch and iPod Classic models, and raising the replacement fee for a broken iPhone from $49 to $79 per incident.
AppleCare+ for the iPhone remains at $99 for the two years of coverage, but the “accidental damage” fee goes up $30. The company has also dropped EarPods from coverage altogether. The program is also expanding to the UK, France, and Italy, the first time it’s being offered in those countries outside the US.
AppleCare+ coverage will also be offered for the iPod touch and iPod Classic for the first time. The plan will run $59, while iPod “incident fees” will run the user $29. The plan extends coverage for your Apple device to a full two years form your purchase date, and covers the device for defects and damage during that period.
