    Hi. Does apple still sell applecare (not applecare+) for Macbook Pro 13" 2017? Can you buy it up to a year after purchase date?

    How about:
    https://www.apple.com/ca/shop/produ...n-plan-for-macbook-macbook-air-13-macbook-pro

    Or... you could call them directly.

    AppleCare is probably worth buying if you have a 2017 MBP, due to the high incidence of keyboard problems. This will get you to the "three year mark" during which you can get keyboard failures replaced free.

    Prediction:
    With the "KeyGate™" lawsuits that are currently in-progress, I expect to see a settlement with the plaintiffs in which Apple extends the warranty for keyboard problems with the 2016/17 MacBook Pros to FIVE years from date of initial purchase (AppleCare or not).
    That's ONLY "my prediction" at this point.

    Call Apple and they will get you to an AppleCare specialist. They have allowing people to buy it within the 1st year of ownership. But it is only available by calling. I assume it will disappear at some time in the future.

    I called apple. She said they still offer Applecare Protection Plan and that I can buy it within a year. That gives me enough time to get together some cash.

    Well, you also need to save enough to replace that laptop in three years.

    Are you serious? Why? If all 2016/2017 Macbook Pros only laster 3 years, there will be more law suits. I trust Apple.

    Yup, because after AppleCare expires, you will be looking at ~$700 repair bill every time the keyboard fails

    You mean like this?
