AppleCare+, a service currently only available to those residing in the United States, is rumored to be making a trip across the pond soon. For those of you that don’t know what I mean, the service may be coming to Europe soon, if rumors are to be believed. According to the blog iGen, AppleCare+ will be coming soon, and though no prices or availability were specified, it assumed that the pricing would be just short of €100. The service also includes a per-incident fee, which in the States costs $49, so that might be about the same for those in Europe.
AppleCare has been getting a lot of attention recently, with its website getting a fairly big revamp just a few short days ago with a new 24/7 chat feature. The warranty side of Apple seems to be a big focus right now, so it only makes sense to see an expansion of AppleCare+ starting with Europe. Most Apple programs, such as the upcoming iPhone trade-in program, begin in the United States because it is Apple’s backyard, and then will eventually go global. This appears to be no different.
