On Tuesday, May 4, Apple announced an update to AppleCare’s standard warranty plan following the release of Apple TV last April. Users will benefit from extended coverage for three years.
The policy change was brought by the Cupertino giant via email.

Macrumors reported that the company’s brief memo stated that those who purchased the AppleCare protection plan will be entitled to accept a benefit of a three-year coverage that will be effective at the start of the transaction.
The previous coverage was only for a two-year extension under the selected plan. This includes the necessary hardware service options and company technical support.

Additionally, what customers need to know is that accidental damage will be ruled out in Apple’s latest plan. Once a customer purchases the standard AppleCare plan, the extension starts automatically. It is also free.
The exact email reads as follows:
Three-year AppleCare Protection Plan for Apple TV
Your AppleCare Protection Plan for Apple TV now provides (up from two years) additional technical support and hardware service options from the date of purchase of your Apple TV.
We extend your plan for an additional year at no cost to you. You have nothing to do.
The new end of coverage date for your AppleCare Protection Plan for Apple TV will automatically adjust. You can check your coverage at checkcoverage.apple.com.
The AppleCare Protection Plan team
What the Cupertino giant announced today was a big step forward for the AppleCare + promotion for Apple TV that has been going on for the past two weeks. Additionally, the newly modeled Apple TV 4K with its Color-Balance experience also arrived last month.
More details on AppleCare + products
Apple Insider said the company is committed to providing full support to its customers, as in previous AppleCare + products. The usual extension of the warranty plan to one year and 90 days was a game-changer with a three-year add-on.
In addition, if you have purchased the plan, you will receive up to two incidents of accidental damage every 12 months. The additional tax will be added to the $ 15 cost of each claim since technical support is priority access in this package.
For AppleCare’s main unit, Apple TV HD and Apple TV 4K will cost $ 29. They would come with a power cord and a Siri remote.
When you want to buy a new device within 60 days, you can avail the service from Apple by going to the official website of the company. You can also contact the company directly through the phone and its Apple Store.
Recurring charges will also be available each month.
