That's not true an out of warranty replacement from Apple is $349 USAre you willing to risk having to buy a phone at full cost if it get damaged beyond repair? If yes than it isn't worth it. If no then it is probably worth it.
I've always bought applecare + and used the phone naked. I've had a few parts failing after the 1 year warranty has expired but because I have applecare+, the genius usually just replace my device without much of a hassle. So I think, it is worth it based on historical facts. But, I bought it with amex so it increases my warranty to 2 years but it doesn't covers for accidents - just repairs.its worth it when you have to use it. a lot of times people have problems after the 1yr warranty is up i.e.: physical damage. so for piece of mind its good to have.
It is worded badly, probably on purpose, but I think that price covers hardware failure, not you dropping it.Like all insurance if you never use it no, if you use it yes. Trick is to look into the future and see if you would use it. Some do many don't.

Especially when you don't have an Apple Store with in reach. The nearest store for me is over an hour away.I never purchased AC+ until the iPhone 5s and have since. Still have not used the accidental protection aspect, but Express Replacements and 1 free battery are more than worth the cost. Then you have the accidental protection added on top. Never having to go to the Apple Store for my devices or accessories saves so much time and wasted gas driving there.
How are they refunding the AC+ credit? I bought my iPhone 6s over craiglist last year new, and comes with AC+ and still have 13 months left, I'm going to trade it in to tmobile to get the new iPhone 7.Considering today's Apple, I always buy Applecare +. Came through once on a 6. And if you trade in or sell the phone you can get a pro-rated refund for the remaining AppleCare+ if you call them and ask politely. I got almost $72 back on the AC+ I bought for my 6s when I traded the 6s in over a week ago.
You call AppleCare and they will issue you a refund minus 10% I believe for the remaining unused portion.How are they refunding the AC+ credit?

They mail you a check if you do not have the credit card originally used to buy the phone.How are they refunding the AC+ credit? I bought my iPhone 6s over craiglist last year new, and comes with AC+ and still have 13 months left, I'm going to trade it in to tmobile to get the new iPhone 7.
The odds of damaging your phone so that it will need a repair is slim. That's why they sell insurance. Insurance companies are nothing more than investment companies. They take your money and invest to make more money. The amount they charge for a policy is based on the amount of return they can get on that investment. If the rate of return drops, the price of insurance goes up.Its still insurance.... accidental or not...
if u never sit it u'll be fine.
I buy it and it has been worth it to me. You can call Apple and talk to reps about Apple ID issues or anything related to your phone for 2 years after purchase. In my family we buy new phones every year and sell the old ones. Sometimes the buyer wants the AC+ and pays extra for it but if they won't pay extra for it, Apple will refund a prorated amount if you never used it and cancel it.Is it still worth it for iPhone 7 plus at CAD 169?
39 for screen replacement and 129 for other accidents.

I'm not clumsy but other people can be. I had a S7 edge and I sent it into one of those recycling sites to sell last year. It was in perfect condition when I sent it in but the company sent it back with a smashed and flickering screen. They were blaming the postal service and the postal service were blaming the the postal service were blaming the recycling company. As I had insurance on the phone and the postage I was able to get the phone replaced.Never bought apple care. Had a 2006 MBP, 2011 MBA, and now a 2016 rMB. Also had an iPhone3gs, iPhone 4, and now the iPhone 6+ which has lasted me 2.5 years. The camera had an issue but that was a manufacturing defect which they said they will replace (haven't gotten a chance to go to an apple store for repair).
I take great care of my tech. I used minimal cases on all my phones and take them to the gym regularly. Of course accidents can happen but so far nothing has happened. So for now, money was saved in my part. My friend works construction and has an otterbox on his.
So, i guess it depends on your lifestyle and if your a clumsy person?
