    Hi guys I am purchasing a used xsmax with apple care plus from a friend . I was wondering if I need to contact apple to transfer the apple care to me. Or do they just use the imei of the device

    Thank you

    It is based on the device. So it goes where the device goes.

    I bought an XS on eBay for a friend. She has discovered it still is covered by apple care on monthly plan and someone keeps paying for it monthly. Would she be covered if she needed it

    I used express replacement about a month ago on my iPhone x. They verified my name and address as part of the process. Per my post above, I think you should get the contract transferred into your name when buying an iPhone that still has applecare coverage.
