Bloomberg reported Monday that folks who buy Apple hardware will be able to buy the AppleCare+ warranty package at any point in the following year.
It should be noted that AppleCare+ is an extension of the default one-year warranty that applies to all Apple products, and lasts 24 months.
Powered by its own proprietary technology, Mashable is the go-to source for tech, digital culture and entertainment content for its dedicated and influential audience around the globe.
Mashable reached out to Apple for confirmation of this policy change and will update this story if it responds.
The previous limit was 60 days, but the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting warranty demand, per Bloomberg, hence the change.
AppleCare+ doesn’t have a fixed price, instead shifting up or down depending on the device you want to protect.
Good news, iPhone buyers https://t.co/XIkH8wmPoQ— FutureShift (@futureshift) August 18, 2020
