Today, Apple emailed customers who had purchased a standard AppleCare plan for their Apple TV devices to let them know that coverage had increased from two to three years.
Customers who purchased “AppleCare” for “Apple TV” will now receive a total of three years of coverage depending on when they originally purchased the plan. AppleCare for Apple TV end dates will be automatically adjusted.
In the emails, Apple doesn’t say why it is expanding the Apple TV AppleCare plans, but that is likely due to the switch to AppleCare + for Apple TV, which Apple made available when it launched the second generation Apple TV 4K. .
AppleCare + for Apple TV offers three years of protection as well as coverage for two incidents of accidental damage. Existing “AppleCare” plans that are being extended do not include accidental damage coverage.
AppleCare + for Apple TV is priced at $ 29, with a monthly purchase option also available.
