Yes. At the time of purchase you can buy AC+.My son just bought an iphone x and can pay or a 2 year applecare. Is it because it is new?
No, nothing has changed.Is it two in addition to the one year standard warranty now?
Or just two years in total?
If you mean AppleCare Plus? You can only add that to your phone within the 60 days of purchase, after 60 days, you can no longer add AppleCare Plus. Once your phone will be paid off for in November, your warranty will expire and no way to renew it.When I originally purchased my iphone X, I signed up for Applecare. I will have this phone paid of in November and was wondering do you pay to extend it? Is it worth it?
No you cannot transfer the AppleCare from one device to a new device, you can do a transfer of ownership, or you can contact AppleCare support and ask for a refund and they will prorate the refund to you for any unused portion. You will have to buy a whole new set of AppleCare plus for your new device.Never had apple care can you transfer it to a new phone if you upgrade after a year?
So if I sell my XS this year do I have to transfer AC to the new owner or is it still covered tied to the IMEI of the phone automatically whether who owns itYes. At the time of purchase you can buy AC+.
Once purchased, you cannot extend it past the time it normally would lapse. You may, however, seek a refund for any months you do NOT use.
For instance, if you have six months of AC+ remaining, but sell your phone, you can either let the buyer keep that last six months or you can ask Apple for a refund of those six months. AC+ stays attached to the IMEI of the device.
It's still covered.So if I sell my XS this year do I have to transfer AC to the new owner or is it still covered tied to the IMEI of the phone automatically whether who owns it
Ino that which I will be doing. But do I have to transfer AC in the new owners name or with the phone itself being covered can they just book a genius appointment it they need to claim on ACIt's still covered.
You can either get a refund, or you can sell it for more. Having AC+ attached to a device increases it's value to a buyer.
If you don't transfer it to the new person, then you could go back in and cancel it for a prorated refund after you completed the sale. If you want to maximize value I'd say you are willing to transfer it over.Ino that which I will be doing. But do I have to transfer AC in the new owners name or with the phone itself being covered can they just book a genius appointment it they need to claim on AC
Thx reading that it can’t be transferred. It’s on a Apple upgrade plan
Actually, there is std warranty, AC, and AC+.For OP:
AppleCare - This comes with every iPhone you purchase. It is the standard 1 year warranty.
AppleCare+ - This is an optional purchase that can be made on iPhones up to a certain amount of days after you buy the phone (60 maybe?). It gives you 2 years of coverage from the date of purchase and also covers things not covered by the standard warranty (with a deductible/co-pay whatever it's called).
