Apple is extending the purchase window for its AppleCare+ extended warranty program for iPhones and iPads from 30 to 60 days in all regions except Japan. Apple has also discontinued its less-expensive AppleCare plan for iPhones and iPads (don’t worry Mac buyers, it’s still there for you). The plan costs $99 for two years of coverage, and in addition to the typical warranty extension, covers up to two incidents of accidental damage — subject to a $79 fee. Be aware that if you don’t order AppleCare+ at the same time as the device, you must visit an Apple Genius in person to purchase the service. follow link
