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

In these countries and regions, when you purchase AppleCare+ coverage for your iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch, you can choose to pay monthly or pay upfront for 24 months of coverage. For Apple Watch Edition and Hermes, you can pay upfront for 36 months.

If you paid in full upfront

If you paid upfront, you can purchase coverage on a monthly basis after the 24 or 36 months is over. To purchase the new coverage, go to mysupport.apple.com. Or on your iPhone or iPad, go to Settings > General > About, then tap AppleCare+ Coverage Available and follow the onscreen instructions. This monthly plan automatically renews until canceled. You can't pay upfront for an additional 24 or 36 months.

In Australia, Canada, Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States, you can purchase the new coverage within 30 days of the end date of your original coverage.

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

If you pay monthly

If you pay monthly, you can't switch to a plan that is paid upfront. But your plan coverage may continue beyond 24 or 36 months, on a monthly basis, until canceled.


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.
