How long is apple obliged to repair or replace my device if it ist malfunctioning? I already have to years with my macbook pro retina and the first year I had it replaced ( extremely yellow screen) and then some months later I had the screen replaced because it was flickering, and then asked immediately for a replacement because the new screen was also extremely yellow don't get first generation apple products kids I'm planning on upgrading to skylake when the new macbooks with skylake get released ( getting a 250 SSD was a BIG mistake! ) , so the question is , what does Apple care really covers? I think in Europe (I live in Germany) apple is bliged by law to fix your device within 2 years of purchase date, or is it only one? I usually don't keep my computers longer than 3 years, so you think is worth to get Apple care? A friend told me that they don't cover the full costs of the reparation, say for example I drop the laptop and the screen breaks, instead they cover a % of the reparation and the reparation times are shorter, is he for real or just making stuff up?
