    Just wondering if it is still possible to purchase AppleCare in any way for an iPhone 5? Was bought last October and selling it on to a family member so would like to get it covered for hardware problems etc. But having looked at the new AppleCare+ T&C's it seems that it has to be purchased within 30 days? I'm sure in the UK we used to have a year from purchase before couldn't buy AppleCare?

    In the U.S. you have 30 days from the date of purchase to buy AppleCare.

    Not sure for U.K. though. My guess would be that it's the same.

    You are thinking of AppleCare+.

    As I recall, normal AppleCare is still available but from a restricted number of channels, I think it's by telephone from Apple only now.

    On Apple's U.S. website the only type of AppleCare available for the iPhone is AppleCare+.

    The OP who is asking the question is in the UK if you read through his post.

    The Apple UK site still refers to the old version, which it calls AppleCare Protection Plan and the new as AppleCare+.
