Just ordered a new iMac today with AC+ and won't receive it until about April 14. Does 3 years start today, when it's shipped or on the day of delivery? Hopefully it's when I get it thus 10 more days of coverage; surely they receive delivery confirmation.

Wouldn’t it be better then to order Apple Care after the computer arrives? Sure I know 10 days isn’t much but I would be livid if something died in that window after AppleCare expires lol
Doesn't matter. Apple Care + starts on the date the device was purchased, not when you decided to buy Apple Care +.
