This week Apple has made a couple of small changes to their AppleCare+ insurance service, that now allows any mobile device with a battery level at less than 80 percent capacity eligible for cover.
Previously the terms and conditions of the AppleCare+ service explained that any devices with a battery capacity less than 50 percent were eligible to receive a repair or replacement.
The new alteration to the AppleCare+ terms and conditions affects all mobile OS devices including Apple’s new Watch, together with the already established iPad, iPhone and iPod devices. Apple explains more about the finer points of the new additions to the AppleCare+ service :
If during the Plan Term, you submit a valid claim by notifying Apple that (i) a defect in materials and workmanship has arisen in the Covered Equipment, or (ii) the capacity of the Covered Equipment’s battery to hold an electrical charge is less than eighty percent (80%) of its original specifications, Apple will either (a) repair the defect at no charge, using new parts or parts that are equivalent to new in performance and reliability, or (b) exchange the Covered Equipment, with a replacement product that is new or equivalent to new in performance and reliability. All replacement products provided under this Plan will at a minimum be functionally equivalent to the original product.
