    That's funny because Apple says you can.

    IIRC you cannot transfer AppleCare between devices. You can only transfer AppleCare between different owners of the device in which the AppleCare was originally purchased on.

    Apple says you can transfer the ownership of the device & the plan will follow, but you cannot take an AppleCare that is attached to one device & then move it to a different device. If you could do that, people would only buy one AppleCare plan for multiple products and just move it over whenever they needed to use it.

    6. Transfer of Plan
    Subject to the restrictions set forth below, you may make a one-time permanent transfer of all of
    your rights under the Plan to another party, provided that: (a) the transfer must include the original
    Proof of Purchase, the Plan's Certificate and all of the Plan's packaging material, including printed
    materials and these Terms and Conditions; (b) you notify Apple of the transfer by sending, faxing or
    e-mailing notice of transfer to Apple Inc., ATTN: Agreement Administration, MS: 217AC, 2511
    Laguna Blvd, Elk Grove, CA 95758, U.S., fax number 916-399-7337 or agmts_transfer@apple.com,
    respectively; and (c) the party receiving the Plan reads and agrees to accept the Terms and
    Conditions of the Plan. When notifying Apple of the transfer of the Plan, you must provide the Plan
    Agreement Number, the serial numbers of the Covered Equipment being transferred and the name,
    address, telephone number and email address of the new owner.
