    Hi - Does AppleCare kick in on the date you buy it or does it automatically follow on once the standard warranty runs out?

    I'm guessing the latter but I'm buying a new iMac with AppleCare this week and don't want to end up doubling up on the warranty if I register AppleCare straight away!

    Thanks

    AppleCare starts after the first year. There's no risk of doubling down so you can buy it now or buy it at the end of the first year, it doesn't matter.

    Applecare must be bought and registered within the first year.
    Applecare + needs to be purchased 60 days but it includes accidental damage.
