I just had an uncommon situation and I need some clarification on how AppleCare works. Now I understand that standard AppleCare for Mac or any iDevice is 1 year. I usually register all my products when I open them so it gets enrolled into the system. I ended up buying a MacBook Pro in 2012 June and according to my knowledge I was supposed to buy extended AppleCare this June. I go into Apple after registering my device (this June of 2013) and ask if I could get AppleCare. Of course I go in with disappointment because I felt I was late and wasn't able to buy it after 1 year of having AppleCare. I go in and the Genius mentions that I have until June of 2014 to buy AppleCare. So what I'm wondering is...is the AppleCare start date the day you register the product? Any thoughts?
