Hello!

For those like me that enjoy upgrading to new devices every year, be warned that unlike the "single payment" AppleCare+, you can't transfer the monthly AppleCare+.

That means if you buy the 11 Pro Max on the monthly AppleCare+, then want to sell it next year, the buyer won't have AppleCare+ unless you keep paying for it because as Apple states on their website, it's linked to your Apple ID for billing purposes and they can't transfer it. Therefore your device will lose resale value because it won't have AppleCare+.

You've been warned! :)

How much extra do you really net for having AC? $50 at most?

thanks for the heads up though.

Why would that matter. I’m the one offering to pay it . My question stands ....would it work .
It gets interesting when the service contract is under your name and they call in for service under a different name.
