AppleCare+ coming to Europe, report suggests

updated 03:19 pm EDT, Wed August 28, 2013

Unclear how program would mesh with European warranty laws

Apple is planning to bring its AppleCare+ warranty program to Europe, a French site claims. In the US AppleCare+ costs $99, and extends an iPhone or iPad's warranty from one year of defect-only coverage to two years, also adding accidental damage coverage through which a device can be replaced twice for just $49 per incident. Europe will get AppleCare+ for the iPhone "soon," iGen writes, and at some point for the iPad, but it's uncertain if iPad support will be launched simultaneously or later.

Also uncertain is pricing, and how the program might fit in with European warranty laws. In a number of countries, Apple has been legally required to extend basic AppleCare warranties to two years. The company may simply market AppleCare+ as-is, since it goes beyond what's demanded by EU regulations.
