Following the “California Streaming” event, at which Apple unveiled the long-awaited iPhone 13, the firm used the opportunity to upgrade several of its services. One of them is Apple Fitness+, which has been expanded to 15 new regions. The other is AppleCare+, which now includes Theft and Loss coverage in the United Kingdom and Australia.
According to MacRumors, the United Kingdom and Australia have joined several states in the United States, as well as Japan and Germany, in offering Theft and Loss insurance. It was announced alongside the iPhone Xs series in 2018, and it included everything that the normal AppleCare+ plan for iPhones did.
“AppleCare+ with Theft and Loss includes up to two incidents of accidental damage, theft, or loss coverage,” explains Apple.
AppleCare+ with Theft and Loss coverage costs £11.99 per month or £239 per year in the United Kingdom, plus a £109 excess price to replace an iPhone. The service costs $15.99 per month or $319 per year in Australia, with an extra $229 for particular occurrences.
Customers must have Find My iPhone enabled on their handsets when they are lost or stolen in order to access their coverage.
If you live in the United States, the following are the service fees once you purchase AppleCare+:
- Screen or back glass damage: $29.00
- Any other accidental damage: $99.00
- Theft or loss: $149.00
