Significant Features, Conditions and Exclusions
AppleCare+ coverage is subject to certain terms, conditions and limitations.  A summary of these is shown below.  Please read your AppleCare+ Terms & Conditions for full details.
 
·       AppleCare+ is only available to Irish residents aged 18 or over (see clause 6.2.4).
·       AppleCare+ does not cover your iPhone, iPad or iPod for loss or theft, wear and tear, or for cosmetic damage which does not affect the functioning of the device (see clause 5.1).
·       AppleCare+ does not cover you for failures due to defects in design, materials or workmanship. Such failures may be covered by your rights under consumer law or by Apple’s One-Year Limited Warranty (see clause 5.1.8).
·       AppleCare+ is limited to two valid claims for accidental damage (see clause 4.5).
·       A policy excess of €69 for iPhone, €49 for iPad or €29 for iPod will be payable each time you make an accidental damage claim in Ireland. If you make a claim in a different country, the policy excess varies (see clause 4.4).
 
Premium
The premium for AppleCare+ is €99 for iPhone or iPad or €59 for iPod inclusive of applicable taxes, details of which are in the AppleCare+ Terms & Conditions.
 
Period of Insurance
Your AppleCare+ hardware coverage only starts on the date you purchase AppleCare+. This means that if you buy AppleCare+ up to 60 days after you purchase your iPhone, iPad or iPod, you will only receive hardware coverage from that date.  The technical support coverage starts on expiry of the complimentary 90 days cover provided by Apple, which starts on the date you purchase your iPhone, iPod or iPad. Both types of coverage end 24 months from the date you purchased your iPhone, iPad or iPod (and not the date you purchased AppleCare+), as shown in your Proof of Coverage certificate or sales receipt.
 
Your AppleCare+ coverage may end earlier if you have exercised your right to cancel.  If you are no longer eligible to make a claim for accidental damage, your hardware coverage for battery depletion and telephone technical support, will continue for 24 months from the date of purchase of your iPhone, iPad or iPod.
 
Cancellation
You may cancel AppleCare+ at any time. To receive any refund you must provide your original sales receipt and/or your POC certificate. If you cancel your policy within thirty (30) days, you will receive a refund of the whole premium you paid or if you cancel more than thirty (30) days after the policy purchase date you will you will receive a refund of the proportion of the premium you paid depending on the remaining portion of the coverage period. If you have already made a valid claim under your policy then whenever you cancel we may deduct from any refund the value of the benefit you received which may result in no refund of premium being due to you. Any refund due may be net of any taxes.
