    iPad Pro AppleCare for iPad Pro Worth it and which route?

    Hi all, just curious how many out there purchase AppleCare+ with their iPad Pro’s. I initially bought a 7th Gen iPad, so definitely didn’t find it worth it on that device, but i ended up swapping that out for the new 11” iPad Pro. Also picked up the Apple Pencil and Magic Keyboard. Thinking...

    What do you guys do when your ONLY Mac needs to be service?

    As the title says, what do you guys do when your only useable Mac has to be returned to Apple/Apple Authorised Reseller for repairs and battery replacement? Service time may take 2-3 weeks. If you have a Windows computer, do you use it in the meantime? Or use your iPad, or iPhone? Buy a new...

    Wonder if anyone else has experienced this. I have a 2018 MBP (2.6 I7 512gb 16gb ram). On Friday, all 4 thunderbolt ports refused to charge, recognize any peripherals. I called Apple and was referred to a Apple Specialist who could not run diagnostics for the same issue. When apple received the...

    Existing AppleCare on 2018 iMac with Upcoming Magic Keyboard TrackPad Folio?

    Does anyone know Apple’s AppleCare coverage policy if you add a keyboard folio after the fact. In other words would Apple Care coverage extend to the new keyboard folio added to an existing iPad AppleCare policy? Just wondering? Or maybe you can get AppleCare for the new keyboard separately?

    AppleCare + Q: reseller or Apple; plain AC vs AC+ ?

    So I have a personal laptop (MBP 16") that I just purchased and still within the 60 days to get AC coverage. All my work Apple products have never had AC in the past 5 years. Before that, we used to purchase AC (standard plan) for every device but then when we started to buy hundreds of...

    AppleCare+ not available in my country. What are my options? (AirPods Pro)

    I'm personally a heavy user of AirPods, and now with Pros I'm pretty keen to get AppleCare+ since I'm charging them pretty much daily. It's pretty much sure batteries gets worn out in 2 years so I'm wondering what are my options here. I don't have official Apple Store (I live in the Czech...

    Cracked Series 4 Watch face

    My GPS-only series 4 fell from my nightstand onto the floor, and cracked the watch face. Since I've got AppleCare, will this only be a $69 fee to replace it?

    iPhone 11 Pro iPhone 11 Pro post purchase Applecare

    I received my iPhone 11 Pro today and am attempting to purchase Applecare+ for it. I can only find the option to purchase the AppleCare monthly @ $10 a month. Is there a way to purchase the two year plan for $199 after you've purchased the phone?

    Other Warning: The monthly AppleCare+ is NOT transferable

    Hello! For those like me that enjoy upgrading to new devices every year, be warned that unlike the "single payment" AppleCare+, you can't transfer the monthly AppleCare+. That means if you buy the 11 Pro Max on the monthly AppleCare+, then want to sell it next year, the buyer won't have...

    Broke iPhone X Back Glass... Should I Replace for Water Resistance?

    After almost two years, I finally damaged by iPhone X. Ironically after dropping it many times, this time it literally fell from a couple inches while I was underneath my car. The back glass doesn't look too bad... from a purely cosmetic standpoint it's probably not worth replacing. However...

    Did you purchase Apple Care+ for your new iMac?

    Currently I have a 2011 iMac that I'm looking to upgrade. I'll be purchasing a 2019 spec'd out iMac and I'm wondering if I should add AppleCare+ to it or not. My 2011 machine needed a motherboard replacement just outside my 3 year AppleCare warranty, so I ended up paying out of pocket for it...

    I bought a NEW iMac 27" 2017 on a deal from B&H last week. I also bought AppleCare+ through B&H. Shipping notification said I would receive my AppleCare+ directly from Apple.

    Broken screen, AppleCare and SSD upgrade

    hi all, as this is my first post, hope this is the right section I just got my first iMac 2019. I upgraded to 40GB of ram from 8GB which was like using a netbook with Atom CPU few years ago - abysmal performance and horrible experience. Glad that's over! After this success I wanted to upgrade...
