Apple today updated its AppleCare+ protection plan for Apple devices to cover two incidents of accidental damage protection every 12 months. Prior to now, AppleCare+ covered two incidents of accidental damage every 24 months.
Accidental damage is subject to service fees that vary based on the damage and the device. For the iPhone, for example, screen damage requires customers to pay a $29 deductible, while other accidental damage requires a $99 fee.
As noted on Reddit, Apple’s separate Theft or Loss plan for the iPhone has a lowered deductible that’s now $149. Previously, replacing a stolen or lost iPhone cost $199 to $269 depending on the device.
