    My AppleCare runs out on 7/8 and I can't get an appointment until 7/8, so can I wait until then, or will my warranty be considered expired?

    If you created the appointment prior to 7/8 I'm willing to bet they'll make an exception for you. That said, they may very well accept it the day it expires. In fact, I think they do.

    If the expiration date is 7/8, I would guess the service runs through that date. Meaning you should be covered on that date, but not after.

    I would agree with the above post's guess, but a call to the store would give you a definitive answer.

    I also believe it works this way.

    I happen to be at an Apple store here at WA and just out of curiosity asked a specialist here, they said it should still be covered till the end of business hours. I suggest you call your store as well, but they should honor it as they do here.

    Yes, it should be fine. Just FYI, calling the store would have been much faster than posting and waiting for a response.

    I took it in today and they gave me an appointment (even though they ended up turning a lot of people away to another date) because of the warranty expiring soon. The guy didn't really give a clear answer whether it would've been valid tomorrow, but I think he was implying that it would have been.

    FYI they were closed.
    But sometimes there's more than meets the eyes when posting on MR.



    Thanks guys.

    FYI Apple has 24-hour customer support.
