iPhone 6 AppleCare protection £34.99 bargain from Apple its £79.

Anyone know the difference between AppleCare and mobile insurance.

Remember Apple haters vote on the deal not wether you like apple.

Does this cover for bending?

Applecare is not like insurance, it won't cover accidental damage. It's just another year of a warranty that you're covered for anyway. Waste of money on a phone, worth it for a laptop as they're expensive to repair.

Applecare + on the other hand, well that is £79 and allows you two replacements for £50 (I think) each. So drop your phone, totally trash it, you get two chances to just swap it out.

I don't think it covers loss of the phone, just damage. You do need to purchase AppleCare plus within 30 or so days of buying your new phone though.

Will it stop it bending :-)

Under EU law. Electricals are covered for 6 years.

So completely pointless having this.

My over half had an iPhone 5 that needed repairing after the warranty ran out. She called up apple and carphone warehouse, they all denied it.

She then called up Citizens Advice, which confirmed this, they sent her a letter to send to carphone warehouse....

and guess what? They had to fix it and did

At a rate of about 9 in one million, I'd say you'd be better trying to get 'hit by lightning' cover.

Though it is 6 years easier to get things fixed in the first 2 as you need to prove the fault, most companies say it's not covered but a fight always gets the item repaired or replaced in the first 2 after quite expensive for the buyer seller gets away with nothing.

PLEASE DO NOT BUY THIS. Op, you are comparing the wrong product to apples stores. Apple no longer sell AppleCare. This is why it is available in eBay etc.

AppleCare was causing so much controversy as people thought it was for insurance. IT IS NOT. The ONLY thing this provides is an extension of warranty if there is a manufacturing defect ( covered anyway by EU law and look at the iPhone five and their voluntary repair of power button, battery etc) and 2 years customer phone support.

The Apple Care PLUS (+) for £79 is an insurance policy for 2 years and can ONLY be purchased from Apple direct, and only applied within 60 days of purchasing your device. After that, you cannot purchase it. It covers two years of Warranty and TWO incidents of damage including Accidental damage ( the only reason you would purchase this in the first place). Each incident costs a £55 excess.

ANY fellow HUKDers who purchase this can call up Apple and, as long as it is from a main retailer ( not eBay) can receive a pro rata refund.

This is not worth the paper and you are encouraging people to part with their money and misleading them about it: this is NOT the £79 AppleCare+ available from Apple!!!

EU directive states a minimum of 2 years for electrical goods.

It's UK law which you are referring to, the sale of goods act and the onus is on the customer to prove fault is due to a manufacturing defect.

Total tripe.

This deal is for cheap AppleCare. It is a product that extends the 1 year global Apple warranty to 2 years. It is excellent for those who have bought a second hand iPhone from anywhere in the world as, so long as the AppleCare protection plan is registered to the device within a year of its original purchase date, full Apple warranty is available anywhere in the world for a further year. For £35 (or even £30 if you look for it) it's an absolute bargain.

This deal is not for AppleCare+ which is a different product altogether. Try not to get so hysterical.

-----------------------------
I appreciate you are just trying to be helpful, so thanks for the heads up on this. From what I understand though, it is still possible to buy AppleCare, if you can still find online retailer who have stock, or Amazon and eBay sellers, and activate it on an iPhone including the new iPhone 6, as long as the iPhone in question is within its year of manufacture. What you are getting for this £30 is a continuation of Apples excellent customer support for the hardware and operating system for another year, on top of the initial Apple 12 month guarantee. So if something like your battery stops charging properly or a button stops working properly or like I had the ear speaker not working, within 2 years of the phone manufacture date you are covered for the hardware to be swapped out for another one.

The problem with this though is in the EU Apple are responsible for fixing faults with their phone for up to 2 years anyway! You can apply uk consumer law as well if it suits your purpose, as that kinda says Apple have to stand by their hardware for potentially up to 6 years, but you would have to be the one responsible to making the case that it is an inherent hardware fault of the product if it's been 6 months after the phone was made/first sold. For £30 though, some people might find value in buying this AppleCare product where they can still find it for sale, to use Apple technical support over the phone, or enjoy the ease and rapid way Apple shop assistants look into hardware faults and if necessary just give you a brand new looking replacement there and then. For these people it migh beat having to have the phone sent away to be inspected and eventually repaired and sent back a few weeks later.

Anyway, now Apple have created a new product for the additional 12 months warranty (2years in total) costing £79, but made it so that now it includes some provision for accidental damage insurance. With this £79 AppleCare+ you can now claim up to 2 incidents of accidental damage (you dropped your phone in water buy accident or cracked the screen for eg) furring the 2 year AppleCare+ coverage. Note there is a £55 excess payable for each claim..

Its only covered for 6 years by apple if you bought it directly from them. If its a contract you would have to contact provider. So this deal is still good for some.

The 6 years places a burden of proof on the purchaser to prove a manufacturing defect and it's with whom you bought it from. I've bought AppleCare on my 5 and my wife 'a and it gives hassle free swap outs. In Fact here I am at an apple store swapping my wife's out now.

Trouble is there is no way you have had access to the originator of that information. Firstly its a design fault so its in every handset, secondly it doesn't have to happen all at one go, the whole technical internet consensus [UN-sponsored.] is that it can flex and crack or bend at any future point in time, you could see your jeans pulling it round your backside obviously, and you say don't sit on it ..ok.. but lets say something precious drops from your hand, and you quickly through instinct reach to grab it before it hit the floor,oops same bum shape, this and who knows how many other simple actions and your heading at least for a dangerous curve[lol.]
Plus when you quote the nine, we have been discussing a company who have not shown themselves to be the most honourable, we all read about the brand new scratched in box i5 story that said the company new and still sold them, we all saw the promotional video about the new map app [ did the main guy know, and just lie in that video ?, did he not even bother to try the app because the phone would just sell in the millions and money would flow like an avalanche from a set of consumer's who are so brainwashed they would accept any or no explanation and just buy from them again anyway ? , or was he a guy with a conscience who found the fault took it to the highest level , just to have it quashed to keep the production lines flowing pre the push for china ?
If that is applied to the robots fitting countless variations of metal for the best fit ever. in the same video, actually manifesting in light bleed in those phones, plus the camera statement, that manifested as pink spotting, first problem a high up guy sent an email to a customer that got out on the internet, with the response.. phones scratch get over it, second problem was all phones have light bleed ,and no they don't . especially if they are made by micro managing robots, then the big hullabaloo about that perfect camera and the pink spot,to which every other manufacturer got dragged in looking for a scape goat, as with this new bending thing, but for truth sake I took a picture of a sunrise on our south coast with an old galaxy s2..guess what, no pink spot whilst aimed at a light source. This company has a plaster for every sore. and a few prepared in advance.
There is no truth in saying iphone is a bad phone, most new top end phones are pretty good and apple phones are no better and apart from the restrictions and lack of functionality not much worse, but if there could possibly be any thing worse than brand haters, its the combined countless pages of imputed righteous drivel accredited to apple, from people who willfully choose to ignore all the balance of available information out there.If my primary teachers told me what I wanted to here and not the truth, I would still have 2+2 down as three. Now 9 in millions I ask you ?
I have not voted the deal down or up as I don't know enough to comment, though I do wonder what the strategy will be for customers if this bendy thing ever comes up in the proportions it is capable of doing, I wonder if one of the apple types could give a positive answer to the buying public that, in the event of wide spread bending there would be a product recall or a total refund so that we might have confidence to buy anyway.[Please not the political answer of it won't happen .as it partially already has and that within a few days.]

You could only decide I needed to lighten up if you had read the content, and I neither demanded you read it , desired your offense, nor plead your agreement, lets all stay free to post our thoughts and observations, but as for the wall of**** ,read again your own comment that I addressed, not even a crocodile would swallow that. I 'm sorry I did not realise you had written it as a joke.
Seeing it that way it is really funny, ha ha 9 in millions, yes, ho ho ho ho ho
Take care.

We've had this discussion before! That's exactly my point, it's not a 6 year guarantee,......... like the link says: The UK Sale of Goods Act already offers protection against faulty goods even when the manufacturer’s guarantee has run out and says that goods must last a “reasonable time” – which can be claimed anything up to 6 years from the date of purchase. - this however is not a 6 year guarantee.... it's just an accepted period of time that the law says you can make a claim, that may or may not be accepted. The onus is on you to prove the item is not fit for purpose and that may apply to a washing machine that lasts 27 months before failing but not a £5 headphone that lasts 17 months.

However I'm not saying that retailers will not accept faulty items out of their standard guarantee period as many people have found. Many retailers don't know consumer law and the well prepared customer can often out talk the shop manager and get a replacement or refund when legally they're not entitled to such.
