The launch of AppleCare+ in Europe has been rumored for quite some time. The attractive warranty plan offers two years of technical support for both iPhones and iPads from the date of purchase, meaning that for an iPhone, it would span across the time of a standard two-year contract with your carrier. The plan also allows for some wiggle room when it comes to accidental damage, as the plan will allow up to two accidents over the span of AppleCare+.
While this plan has been available in the United States since the launch of the iPhone 4S, the service has never been launched in Europe. According to reports, however, the launch of the extended plan is “imminent” in countries overseas. It is believed that the first countries to receive the new product will be Italy, France, Germany, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. It is also thought that after the original rollout to those six countries, the program will be expanded into other parts of Europe.
While I’ve never been one to buy an extra warranty, I know that lots of people depend on it to survive their contracts with their carriers. For anyone living in any of the six countries listed above, would you go out and buy AppleCare+? Do you think it would be worth the rumored €100 price tag? Leave a comment below and let us know if you would consider purchasing AppleCare+.
