Applecare Plus doesn't cover iPad Mini earbuds, which you HAVE to buy separately for $30, yet all the other iPads, iPods or iPhones with Applecare Plus do cover the earbuds. I am told the earbuds are covered for the other products because they are "in the box". Even if you bought the earbuds at the same time and they are on the iPad Mini's receipt. You pay the same $99 for Applecare Plus as you do for the iPad which covers the iPad's earbuds. Unlike all the other products, the iPad mini does not even come with the earbuds. There also is no ability to buy Applecare just for earbuds, so you are screwed anyway you look at it if the earbuds fail, as mine did.
