    AppleCare+ for iPad 2 will be available March 16.

    AppleCare+ for iPad extends your repair coverage up to two years from the original purchase date of your iPad and adds up to two incidents of accidental damage coverage.

    Will I be able to buy this for my iPad 2?????

    I had this same question. I will call my local store and see what they tell me.

    Yes. Applecare can be added up to a year from the purchase date.

    If you read the Applecare boxes and descriptions, your warranty covers the first year. Applecare will extend your care for 2 years from purchase. So you can purchase Applecare as long as you are within the 1st year. I used to do some stuff for them so I got training on their Applecare product line.

    Well yes and no , I'm asking if they are extending the purchase past the 30 days you have to purchase AppleCare + I think your confusing it with AppleCare . AppleCare+ has to be bought within 30 days of purchase but like with the iPhone 4s they extended that. So I'm wondering since it was not available only the AppleCare not the + 3 months ago if they will let me buy it now.

    I think you've answered your own question. AppleCare+ must be purchased within 30 days. I don't think Apple intends for AppleCare+ to apply to devices that were purchased before it was announced. It can't hurt to ask, but don't be surprised if the answer is no.

    Ah, I see what you mean. The Applecare+ is a different product line. While it's not retroactive for previous devices, you can always go to several local Apple Stores and see if they are willing to sell it to you. These will be on a case-by-case basis from what I know.
