A customer that purchases a new iPhone now has up to one year to purchase AppleCare+ for the device, compared to 60 days previously, according to multiple people familiar with the matter. Apple has yet to update the fine print on its website, but MacRumors confirmed the extension with a senior AppleCare advisor.
To qualify, the device must be inspected by an Apple sales/service rep and you must have proof of purchase. This will likely help Apple boost sales of lucrative extended warrantees.
