Is AppleCare worth it?

AppleCare+ is worth it if you tend to break your iPhone or if you don’t want to worry about paying for repairs. It’s also a good idea if you plan on reselling your iPhone, since AppleCare+ increases the resale value of your phone.

There are a few things to keep in mind when deciding whether or not to get AppleCare+, though. First, it only covers two incidents of accidental damage, so if you’re the type of person who is constantly breaking your phone, it might not be worth it. Second, AppleCare+ doesn’t cover water damage, so if you’re worried about dropping your phone in the pool, might want to skip it. Finally, AppleCare+ is only available for the iPhone, so if you have an iPad or iPod, you’ll need to purchase a separate plan.

How to get AppleCare

If you’ve just bought a new Apple device, whether it’s an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac, you may be wondering if you should get AppleCare+ for it. After all, accidents happen, and if you drop and break your brand new iPhone, you’ll probably want to have insurance to help cover the cost of repairs (or replacement). The same goes for water damage or any other type of accidental damage.


If you’re not sure whether or not you have AppleCare, there are a few ways to check. First, if you purchased your iPhone within the last year, it’s likely that it’s still covered by AppleCare+. To check, go to Settings -> General -> About and look for the “AppleCare+ Coverage” section. If it says “AppleCare+ Expires in XX days,” then you’re still covered.

If your iPhone is older than a year, your coverage will be provided by AppleCare. To check if you have AppleCare, open settings app and go to General -> About. Next to “Hardware Warranty,” it will say either “AppleCare Expires in XX days” or “No AppleCare Coverage.”
