Read this article to learn how to check Apple warranty status and keep track of Apple service and support coverage for all your Apple devices.
Apple provides a warranty for all its new and refurbished products. Whenever you buy a new Apple product, be it an iPhone, iPad, or MacBook, it comes with a Limited Warranty of one year from the date of purchase. This means that Apple will take care of any defects or faults that plague your product in the first year of its use. You can upgrade to a 3-year AppleCare+ Warranty for an extra charge. Apple also offers several Extended Warranty packages which cover your product issues an additional year. Sadly, these are pretty expensive. For example, the extended warranty for a new MacBook Air starts at $249 (Rs.18,500), while an extended warranty package for an iPhone costs nearly $200 (Rs.14,800). You can choose to opt for the said warranty considering the fact that fixing any problems with your Apple product could potentially cost a lot more. For instance, a new screen for a MacBook Air will set you back by appx. Rs.50,000.
