AppleCare+ reaches iPad; Apple TV gets direct Netflix signup

updated 03:50 pm EST, Wed March 7, 2012

New AppleCare option covers device, peripherals

In tandem with announcing a third-generation iPad, Apple has also brought its AppleCare+ warranty option to the tablet. By default an iPad is only given a limited one-year warranty, with 90 days of free support. Paying $99 extends coverage up to two years, and allows for two incidents of accidental damage, although in each instance a $49 service fee still applies.

The plan covers not just an iPad but its battery, power adapter, and USB cable, as well as any AirPort or Time Capsule device bought during coverage or two years before. AppleCare+ must, however, be applied no later than 30 days after buying an iPad. The warranty package was initially offered only to iPhone 4S buyers.

Apple TV owners have meanwhile gained the the ability to sign up for Netflix directly. Until today, people were forced to sign up on the Netflix website, or else through another device. Subscriptions can even be paid for through iTunes, though it's not clear if Apple is taking a cut.
