AppleCare+ is now available as an annually renewable plan for all Mac models, the Studio Display, and the Pro Display XDR in Canada, Australia, and Japan, allowing customers in these countries to pay for coverage on an annual basis from day one.
In Canada, customers can now purchase AppleCare+ for the MacBook Air with the M2 chip for $99.99 per year, along with the existing option of paying $269 for three years up front. The AppleCare+ for Mac page in Canada and Japan contains full pricing information, but the page in Australia does not.
In Canada, Australia, and Japan, you could already renew AppleCare+ coverage annually after the initial three-year period was up. However, now customers can subscribe to AppleCare+ for Mac on an annual basis from the beginning, as has been the case in the United States since last year.
Depending on the type of damage, AppleCare+ for Mac covers up to two incidents of accidental damage every 12 months. AppleCare+ also provides customers with 24/7 priority access to Apple’s technical support representatives via online chat or phone while active coverage.
