All-new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models sold now include 7-days of complimentary AppleCare+. Giving additional support, servicing – including accidental damage repair, and more, for the first seven days. However, what happens after the seven days have elapsed?
At the end of the 7-day complimentary offer, annual AppleCare+ can be purchased. There is also the option to pay 36-months (3-years) of coverage upfront.
Benefits of AppleCare+ for Mac include:
expert technical support and additional hardware coverage from Apple
two incidents of accidental damage protection every 12 months
24/7 priority access to Apple experts by chat or phone
battery service if your battery retains less than 80 per cent of its original capacity
An additional fee does apply when making claims for two incidents of accidental damage. But a cost that is much cheaper than without AppleCare+. Screen and/or enclosure damage will cost just A$149. And A$429 for all other damage.
