My rear camera stopped working, so I booked a Genius Bar appointment to get it fixed for 10.1.14. Today, Apple very kindly replaced my i phone for a new one, I was extremely pleased with the fast and efficient service by Apple at Buchanan Street in Glasgow. I am just wondering, if I can get an extended Applecare for my new product in case the same happens again ? or how long it is guaranteed from when I have received it ?
You can purchase additional applecare warranty (from the store that did the warranty repair if you wish) that will extend the 1 year warranty you got when you purchased the iphone in the first place. You need to do this anytime up to and including day 364 of that first year.
When you have have a warranty repair/replacement the warranty is only valid for that first year of if you've purchased additional appleware warranty, to the end of that additional warranty period.
For example: In the 4th month of the first year's warranty - you still have 8 months left - your iPhone needs repairing/replacing because of a problem that's covered by the warranty. You'd still only have 8 months left. In other words you don't get another 12 months on the 8 months you have left.
I think I've explained this correctly and HTH?
In the UK Apple now normally offers only AppleCare+ which has the accidental damage coverage, and normally AppleCare+ must be purchased at the time you buy the iPhone or with 30 days of purchase. If you bought the iPhone new more than 30 days ago, I doubt that you can buy AppleCare+ now, but you can ask. You can also call Apple Support and ask if it is still possible to purchase the original AppleCare plan (which has no accidental damage coverage). That plan was, as Antonio said, available any time during the one-year factory warranty.
