Hello,

I want to buy applecare+ for my apple watch. The issue is that I have already bought the watch few days back and when i try to add it to my cart on apple's site, it says it can be only purchased along with other products and therefore removes from the cart.

Now I know that I am eligible to buy applecare+ upto 60 days from the date of purchase.

So how do i go about buying it now. I want to buy it online.

Thanks.

you may need to bring it into a store.

Try downloading the Apple support app.
One that is ready it should list the watch, tap on it and scroll around and see if Apple care is available.

More than likely it’s a trip back to the store.

I had no problem buying it online offer the fact. Asks permission to run diagnostics in the watch then your done. Sorry I don’t remember the specifics of how I got it. Maybe the app on my phone.

I prurcahsed AppleCare+ a couple of weeks afterwards and just spoke to them over the phone to activate. They didn’t even run any diagnostics on the watch.

If you go to the page on the website that lists all your personal devices then there should be a button to add AppleCare to the watch.

I went on apple chat and did it that way.

Or as others have said if you login with your Apple ID and get a list of your devices you can add it that way.

What if you purchase apple care at the time of sale.
If it returnable any time? or just in the 14 day return period?
