Or get your iPad from John Lewis?

Are these really worth it? Wouldn't the extra be better spent on Applecare + ? Then if you brake it in the second year (by accident) you get a new iPad.

Just remember you get 2 years warranty in the UK. Apple won't tell you, you have to tell them!

This is somewhat useful. The benefit of Applecare is that it's effectively and insurance policy. For £25, you get 2 years of insurance. Think the excess is £49 but someone may correct me on that.

Heat for the deal as RRP is £99.

I've read about that, but have you or anyone tried it with Apple yet?

Oh, Applecare includes accidental damage, unlike your warranty. But bare in mind that your house insurance can also be claimed upon should you have the electronics cover on your policy.

No Applecare + includes accidental damage not Applecare...need to be clear.

You are correct there, I was referring to Applecare+.

On Apple store however, Applecare+ is the only option available for iPad's, therefore OP must be referring to Applecare+? I'll correct myself from above, RRP is £79 and excess is £39 for a claim.

You can save more by simply not buying crappy apple products.

Yes but worth it for peace of mind....i have a reoccurring image in my head that in 23 1/2 months’ time my iPad will accidentally fall off my banister/out the window/be jumped on etc

I don't know why some people take out extra warranties. Your protected for up to 6 years under SOGA if it is a manufacturing defect.

Waste of money, given the SOGA rules and minimum European warranties.

Once again, Apple is squeezing its gullible customers...

i had my phone replaced after 18 months when the power button started playing up. what people dont know is that under EU consumer protection your product is covered for at least 2 years min and apple dont tell you that you have to mention it to them. recently in some european countries apple care protection has been banned as its misleading to consumers since your product is coverd for min two years anyway warrany details can be found here apple.com/uk/…ty/

But it's all about accidental damage. We all know about your rights if you discover a manufacturing detail, but if you drop your device on the ground, into your bath or just simply smash it against the wall for no reason you will be covered. £25 a year is about £2 per month. I say it's worth it.

Thanks for this! I have had my Ipad just over a year and it decided to stop working last night. You are certainly right they didnt tell me about this while I was chatting to them last night.

Just off the phone to them again and they confirmed about being covered by consumer law!

Wow. I did this with a tv that died three weeks out of guarantee .... Argos tried to say it's not covered until I mentioned this......

Apple are pretty good at telling people about this (versus other retailers including Tesco [who will swear blind it's not the law]):

Remember it's the retailer not the manufacturer who provide these rights, so if not bought from Apple don't expect the apple store to deal. Go back to place of purchase.

Don't you have to take these out within a certain amount of time from buying your hardware...in case anyone with a 23month old ipad is wondering.

Premium product with 1 year warranty amazes me yet I still have one.How stupid am I? Does this cover me if I liquid damage or break it??

I have an ipad mini which decided to stop working the other day too. I understand the release date was november 2012 so they would definitely have 2yrs on them as you say. How do I go about claiming this? I dont have a recept as it was a gift.

My understanding is that after 12 months the eu warranty claim is made via the retailer you bought it from eg Vodafone or Currys. They then sort it out with Apple. In simple terms the apple store would fix something going wrong in the first 12 months but after that the responsibility is with the retailer. Ony experience Sale of Goods Act argument doesn't work on apple stores.

No


Thanks for that no good for me then.Shame still decent for the price

This is AppleCare not AppleCare+

I have the AppleCare for my iPad 3rd gen well worth buying. Most note that this does not cover accidental or damages to iPad as I have smashed my screen and apple refused to repair it under AppleCare.

What if the item was purchased second hand or given as gift, would they still cover it without you being original buyer and no receipt?

A lot of conflicting views here - what is situ. with a ipad bought in uk? 12 months Manu. Warranty - but after that?? My understanding is Consumer experts say retailers are exploiting ambiguous legislation to wriggle out of their responsibilities. Ministers, however, claim the law is quite clear. The Sale of Goods Act offers protection against faulty goods even when the manufacturer's guarantee has run out. The act says goods must last a reasonable time - and that can be anything up to six years from the date of purchase.

Stand your ground, of course accidental damage is something different. But if it fails.....DEMAND a resolve

PS: I have challenged GAME recently, regarding a 15 month old 360. I got a FULL refund.

I think if I had bought it from Apple they would have to do the same?

But, I got it from ASDA so apparantly its their responsibility to sort it.

I am getting no where with my faulty ipad but I know the laws now and if they still dont help me i'm taking it further

Yes, can only be applied to an ipad within 12 months of purchase. (during first year guarantee)
