Extend your AppleCare+ coverage

If your AppleCare+ plan will expire soon, you might be able to continue coverage.

In Australia, Canada, Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States

  • If you paid upfront for an AppleCare+ plan for your iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch, you can purchase new coverage that renews monthly.
  • In the United States, if you paid upfront for an AppleCare+ plan for your Mac, you can purchase new coverage that renews annually. 

Purchase the new coverage within 30 days of the end date of your original coverage. To purchase the new coverage, go to mysupport.apple.com and follow the on-screen instructions. The new coverage automatically renews until canceled.

If you pay monthly or annually for your AppleCare+ plan, you don't need to take action to renew the plan. Your plan coverage may continue beyond 24 or 36 months, on a monthly or annual basis, until canceled.

If you choose to continue coverage, your coverage will be subject to the then-current AppleCare+ Terms and Conditions.


In China mainland

If you paid upfront for 24 months of coverage, you can continue coverage on an annual basis when the 24 month period is over. If you pay annually, your annual plan will renew each year until canceled.

Within 30 days of the end date of your coverage, go to Settings > General > About. Then tap AppleCare+ Coverage Available and follow the onscreen instructions.

If you choose to continue coverage, your coverage will be subject to the then-current AppleCare+ Terms and Conditions.
