    Apple care can be purchased at any time, does not have to be right at purchase. Simply walk into an Apple Store and ask for Apple care.

    You can buy into AppleCare anytime before the original warranty expires. Has nothing to do with whatever 3rd party buy and sell site you got the thing from.

    In the U.S. AppleCare plus needs to be within 60 days. Regular AppleCare can be a year.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    That is the only correct answer. It cannot be purchased at any time.
    And as far as I know regular applecare is not sold any more and its discontinued. Only applecare sold for iphone is applecare plus.
    You can purchase applecare plus only within 60 days of the original purchase. So if someone got a 6 month old iphone and just replaced it via warranty you cannot add applecare plus to it even though the replacement its only a few days old for example.

    Yes I bought an iPhone 6 from Swappa and was able to get Apple Care. You have to get a device that's eligible for Apple Care.
