I’ve never damaged any of my iPads but I have 2 young children and a clumsy husband so I get it just in case anything happens.Because I take care of my devices.

My iPad isn’t constantly being taken in/out of my pocket or carried around. When in use, I’m almost always sitting or lying down.
There’s no need to drop more money on useless insurance.
I hear/see this a lot. Here's my perspective: The way our newer devices are built, we've got a ton of smaller components that could go bad at any time. A personal example would be the built-in SIM card. It randomly went bad on my cellular 9.7" iPP and they just gave me a brand new iPP at the spot. Or a software update might brick your device. Or... Let's say they introduce a new feature with one of the iOS updates and you wanted to learn more about it - does Google have all the answers that you are looking for? I would rather pay for the convenience of having someone to call/talk to/run diagnostics rather than spending hours on the internet getting even more frustrated. AppleCare is not insurance. Insurance is what they sell you at the phone store(s) once they successfully scare you off about damage/loss or theft.Because I take care of my devices.

I did a similar thing at a Brewpub, and no I had not had a beer yet The iPad cartwheeled on the high table but I caught it as it went over the edge. No damage at all, but I'm glad I have AppleCare+I didn't before, but I am now. Last month I dropped my 10.5" and bent the corner and shattered the screen. Instead of paying $450 to get it repaired, I decided to get an 11" with AppleCare. I took such good care of my iPad, but accidents happen. I reached for it on the kitchen counter and the smart cover came off causing the iPad hit the tile floor. (I had a case and glass screen protector on it.)
