Apple announces AppleCare+ for iPad, coming soon for $99

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 7:49PM EST

Apple on Wednesday announced its AppleCare+ extended warranty service for the iPad. Like other Apple products, when purchasing an iPad the device comes with a one year limited warranty, however accidental damage is not covered. With AppleCare+, users can breathe easy knowing their $499+ slate is safe from water damage, drops and hardware malfunctions for two years — although users are only allotted two incidents of accidental damage, each of which will require a $49 service fee. AppleCare+ is priced at $99 and must be purchased within 30 days of buying an iPad.
