Curious what the latest consensus is on AppleCare+ for iPad 3.
I said no for me, and yes for my aunt. Just depends on who is using the device.
Yea... If you break it in the first 30 days like my fiancè did mine...
I'm a yea.
Yah unless u have a otter box for it.
I broke mines in a week and great thing I had it, now it's being shipped baq to them for replacement.
Yea for the 2 year protection to include technical support
I've already dropped mine from 2-3 ft(nothing happend), but accidents do happen and $100 is nothing for ease of mind in case the screen cracks or if someone spills something
No. Unless you are careless or have young kids you don't supervise.
I bought it...
No way. It's pretty much throwing money away. Apple makes a killing off the AppleCare.
Why is there one of these threads every day or two..
Accidental coverage, heck yeah !
No, that's what my Amex Plat is for.
Not available in the UK
I'd buy applecare+ for the accidental damage cover, but I'm not buying standard applecare.
I paid $800 for my iPad with tax (729 + 10% in Chicago) so the extra $100 for piece of mind is nothing compared to the hassle and cost involved if something bad happens.
Sure, a broken screen may be $100 or $200 to replace, but what about water damage or other issues? That can be more costly. Sure, we all take good care of our stuff but accidents can happen.
I tend to agree with your points. (I like your username for some reason, by the way.)
Apologies to those sick of another AppleCare thread, but I don't think there ever was a poll, and am debating whether to keep my AppleCare+ just purchased (it can be refunded within 30 days).
I'm also surprised it isn't available in the UK. What does Apple offer you guys (blokes) instead... the original AppleCare that extends the warranty to 2 years but without accident coverage?
Haha funny how we have similar names and are both in the Chicago area. Something in the water, I guess.
Id keep the apple care. You already paid for it so obviously you can afford it, and you no longer have to worry about it for 2 years. You also won't miss the $100 that went into it already.
A $50 deductible and same day replacement at an Apple store up to 2 years from now if you drop it or something goes wrong will be a lot easier to swallow than $550-$800 (or more depending on your model) or hours and days spent on ordering replacement parts, waiting for shipping, reading DIY guides, etc.
Even if you don't use it for 2 years at least you won't be panicked about taking your iPad on vacations, to coffee shops, etc. where you may have an accident cause you'll know a replacement is just $50 away should something bad happen.
That frees your mind up and lets you enjoy it the way it was meant and not keep it locked up in your room because you're afraid it will break.
Thought about it since it covers accidental damage, but decided against it.
Yes! Peace of Mind is worth it!
I'm in for the peace of mind too. Although I think it's probably more useful to buy for the iPhone.
I'm a firm no on all types of extended warranties. The vast majority of them are never used and, for me, the value just isn't there.
To each his own though. If it were me though I would not pay the extra $$, buy a good protective case, and then make sure to be careful with the device.
Same here what a shame I would buy the + as well but the standard isn't worth it (for me).
No, not when its 20% of value of my iPad, that and I probably will sell it within the year anyhow. I spent good money on a targus versavue case and that's enough peace of mind for me. It'll be used at home 99% of the time anyways.
For my $2000 iMac though I would not mind spending 6% on apple care.
Amex all the way!
Out of curiosity, buying with Amex provides accidental coverage? That's pretty sweet.
I purchased mine with a Visa that provides an additional year warranty coverage. Wonder how they handle it versus Amex.
