AppleCare+ has also quietly been added, giving you the option to cover your beloved iDevice for two years from the date of purchase, and some other stuff I’ll write about below.
There are three independent AppleCare+ plans we’re interested in here, specifically one for iPod, one for iPhone, and one for iPad.
The iPod AppleCare+ plan (which includes the iPod touch and Classic) is the cheapest, at £49. There’s an excess fee of £25 each for “up to two incidents of accidental damage from handling”, so don't go thinking you can throw your iDevice around willy nilly.
Moving on to the iPhone AppleCare+ plan, it’s a wee bit more expensive at £79, with the excess fee sitting at £55. The iPad AppleCare+ plan is also £79, but the excess is a little lower at £39. Again, you're allowed two incidents of clumsiness.
In any case, you’re also getting “expert technical support”, for things like iCloud and connecting to wireless networks. Yep, you'd be surprised how many people struggle with things like using Wi-Fi.
And uhm, that’s about the size of it. AppleCare+, available now in the UK. Go wild.
