Apple launched its new AppleCare+ protection plan on the same day the iPhone 4S launched in October. Customers who pre-ordered the new smartphone — a number which rose to more than one million — weren’t given the opportunity to purchase the protection plan at the time of purchase. Apple extended the deadline for AppleCare+ purchases as a result, to November 14. Now a leaked internal memo (via SprintFeed) reveals that the extension has been pushed out even further, to December 15.
In addition, Apple is also offering its customers a grace period after ab iPhone purchase, a 30-day window during which they’ll be allowed to add AppleCare+ protection if it wasn’t purchased alongside the phone. The company’s website confirms this, though in order to take advantage you’ll need to either make a Genius Bar appointment or call up Apple; in either case, proof of purchase is required and your phone will need to be inspected for pre-existing damage. Check out Apple’s website for the updated terms.
