How Consumer Rights Affect this Plan

THE BENEFITS CONFERRED BY THIS PLAN ARE IN ADDITION TO ALL RIGHTS AND REMEDIES PROVIDED UNDER CONSUMER PROTECTION LAWS AND REGULATIONS. THIS PLAN SHALL NOT PREJUDICE THE RIGHTS GRANTED BY APPLICABLE CONSUMER LAW, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO RECEIVE REMEDIES UNDER STATUTORY WARRANTY LAW AND TO SEEK DAMAGES IN THE EVENT OF THE NON-PERFORMANCE BY APPLE OF ANY OF ITS CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATIONS.

1. The Plan

This contract (the “Plan”) governs the services provided by Apple under the above plans and includes the terms in this document, your Plan Confirmation (“Plan Confirmation“), and the original sales receipt for your Plan. Your Plan Confirmation will be provided to you at the time of purchase. If you purchased your Plan from Apple, you may obtain a copy of your Plan Confirmation by going to mysupport.apple.com/products.

Benefits under this Plan are additional to your rights under applicable laws, the manufacturer’s hardware warranty and any complimentary technical support. The terms of the Plan apply the same whether paid for on a one-time basis (“Single-Pay Plan”) or a monthly basis (“Monthly Plan”) unless otherwise noted.

The Plan covers the following equipment (collectively, the “Covered Equipment”): (i) the Apple Watch, HomePod, iPad (including an Apple Pencil purchased for use with your iPad, referred to as an “iPad Input Device”), iPhone, iPod, or the Apple- or Beats-branded headphones listed on your Plan Confirmation (“Covered Device”), (ii) the accessories contained inside the original packaging of your Covered Device, and (iii) an AirPort Express or AirPort Extreme Base Station, and an AirPort Time Capsule, which are used with a HomePod or an iPad that is a Covered Device and purchased no earlier than two years before the HomePod or the iPad (“Connectivity Device”).

Coverage begins when you purchase the Plan and continues through, unless cancelled, the date specified in your Plan Confirmation (the “Plan Term”).

You can find the price of the Plan on the original sales receipt.

2. What is Covered?

2.1 Hardware Services for Defects or Consumed Battery (“Hardware Service”)

If during the Plan Term, you submit a valid claim by notifying Apple that a defect in materials and workmanship has arisen in the Covered Equipment or, in relation to Covered Equipment which uses an integrated rechargeable battery, where the capacity of the Covered Device's battery to hold an electrical charge is less than eighty percent (80%) of its original specifications, Apple will either: (i) repair the defect at no charge, using new parts or parts that are equivalent to new in performance and reliability, or (ii) 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. If Apple exchanges the Covered Equipment, the original product becomes Apple’s property and the replacement product is your property, with coverage effective for the replacement product for the remainder of the Plan Term.

2.2 Services for Accidental Damage from Handling (“ADH Service”)

If during the Plan Term you submit a valid claim by notifying Apple that the Covered Device has failed due to accidental damage from handling resulting from an unexpected and unintentional external event (such as, drops and damage caused by liquid contact) (“ADH”), Apple will, subject to your payment of the service fee described below, either (i) repair the defect using new or refurbished parts that are equivalent to new in performance and reliability, or (ii) exchange the Covered Device with a replacement product that is new or equivalent to new in performance and reliability. Each time you receive services for ADH is a “Service Event”. Exclusions apply as described below. Further, services for ADH expire and all of Apple’s obligations to you under this Section are discharged and fulfilled in their entirety once Apple has provided to you two (2) Service Events.

Important: Please refer to Section 3 for exclusions on provision of ADH Service.

The following service fees apply to each Service Event:

Apple Watch (excluding Hermès and Edition):

A$99/HK$548/SGD$98/MOP$588/฿2,300

A$45/HK$229/SGD$39/MOP$249/฿1000

 

*Fees include applicable taxes payable by you

ADH Service for an iPad Input Device will count as a separate Service Event from ADH Service of your iPad and count towards your two Service Events, even if both your iPad and iPad Input Device are damaged at the same time.

For iPhone – Screen-Only Damage, the Covered Device must have no additional damage beyond the screen, including, but not limited to, a bent or dented enclosure, that would prevent Apple from replacing the screen on the Covered Device. Covered Devices with additional damage will be charged as iPhone All Other Damage. Screen-Only repairs are not available on devices other than iPhones.

The ADH coverage under the Plan may be provided to you as a benefit under an arrangement which Apple has entered into with the relevant insurer named in Section 11 below in the country or jurisdiction where you purchased the Plan (“Insurer”).

2.3 Technical Support

During the Plan Term, Apple will provide you with priority access to telephone and web-based technical support for Covered Equipment (“Technical Support”). Your Technical Support starts on expiration of the complimentary technical support provided by Apple, which starts on the date you purchase the Covered Equipment. Technical support may include assistance with installation, launch, configuration, troubleshooting, and recovery (excluding data recovery), including storing, retrieving, and managing files; interpreting system error messages; and determining when hardware service is required or ADH coverage may be applicable. Apple will provide support for the then-current version of the supported software, and the prior Major Release. For purposes of this section, the term “Major Release” means a significant version of software that is commercially released by Apple in a release number format such as “1.0” or “2.0” and which is not in beta or pre-release form.

Apple Technical Support is limited to the following: (i) the Covered Equipment, (ii) the Apple-branded Operating System (“OS”) and Apple- or Beats-branded software applications that are pre-installed on or designed to operate with the Covered Equipment (“Consumer Software”), and (iii) connectivity issues between the Covered Equipment and a laptop or desktop computer, or other compatible wireless device that meets the Covered Equipment’s connectivity specifications and runs an operating system supported by the Covered Equipment. Exclusions apply as described below.

3. What is not Covered?

3.1 Hardware Service and ADH Service

Apple may restrict Hardware Service and ADH Service to the country where the Covered Equipment was originally purchased.

Apple will not provide Hardware Service or ADH Service in the following circumstances:

(a) to protect against normal wear and tear, or to repair cosmetic damage not affecting the functionality of the Covered Equipment;

(b) to conduct preventative maintenance;

(c) to replace Covered Equipment that is lost or stolen;

(d) to repair damage caused by reckless, abusive, willful or intentional conduct, or any use of the Covered Equipment in a manner not normal or intended by Apple;

(e) to install, remove or dispose of the Covered Equipment or the equipment provided to you while the Covered Equipment is being serviced;

(f) to repair damage caused by a product that is not Covered Equipment;

(g) to repair any damage to Covered Equipment (regardless of the cause) if the Covered Equipment has been opened, serviced, modified, installed or altered by anyone other than Apple or an authorized representative of Apple;

(h) to repair pre-existing conditions of the Covered Equipment if you purchased the Plan after you purchased the Covered Equipment;

(i) to repair any damage to Covered Equipment with a serial number that has been altered, defaced or removed; or

(j) to repair damages caused by fire, earthquake or other external causes.

Important: For Plans purchased in Thailand, additional exclusions apply. Refer to Section 11 for the additional exclusions applicable to your Plan.

Installation of third-party parts may affect your coverage. As a condition of receiving Hardware or ADH Service, all Covered Equipment must be returned to Apple in its entirety including all original parts or Apple-authorized replacement components. The restriction does not prejudice your consumer law rights.

3.2 Technical Support

Apple will not provide Technical Support in the following circumstances:

(a) For use of the OS and Consumer Software as server-based applications;

(b) For issues that could be resolved by upgrading software to the then-current version;

(c) For third-party products or their effects on or interactions with the Covered Equipment;

(d) For your use of a computer or OS that is not related to Consumer Software or to connectivity issues with the Covered Equipment;

(e) For software other than the Consumer Software;

(f) For any Consumer Software designated as “beta”, “prerelease”, “preview”, or similar designation; or

(g) For damage to, or loss of any software or data that was residing or recorded on the Covered Equipment (note: the Plan does not cover the recovery or reinstallation of software programs and user data).

4. How to Obtain Service and Support?

You may obtain service or Technical Support by calling Apple or accessing support.apple.com/country-selector. You must provide the Plan Agreement Number or Covered Device serial number. You must also, upon request, present your Plan Confirmation, and the original sales receipt for your Covered Device and your Plan.

5. Service Options

Apple will provide Hardware or ADH Service to you through one or more of these options:

(a) Carry-in service. Carry-in service is available for most Covered Equipment. Return the Covered Equipment to an Apple-owned retail store location or to a service provider authorized by Apple that offers carry-in service. Service will be performed for you at the store, or the store may send the Covered Equipment to an Apple repair service (“ARS”) site for service. You must promptly retrieve the Covered Equipment.

(b) Mail-in service. Direct mail-in service is available for most Covered Equipment. If Apple determines that your Covered Equipment is eligible for mail-in service, Apple will send you prepaid waybills (and, if needed, packaging material). You must ship the Covered Equipment to an ARS site in accordance with Apple’s instructions. Once service is complete, the ARS site will return the Covered Equipment to you. Apple will pay for shipping to and from your location if you follow all instructions.

(c) Express Replacement Service (“ERS”) or do-it-yourself (“DIY”) parts service. ERS is available for certain Covered Equipment. ERS is not available for iPod, iPhone Screen-Only Service Events, or Connectivity Devices. DIY parts service is available for many Covered Equipment. This allows you to service your own Covered Equipment. If Apple requires return of the replaced device or part, Apple may require a credit card authorization to serve as security for the retail price of the replacement device or part and applicable shipping costs until you return the replaced device as instructed, and if you are not able to provide credit card authorization, service may not be available to you in which case Apple will offer an alternative arrangement for service. If you fail to return the replaced Covered Equipment or part as instructed or return a replaced Covered Equipment or part that is ineligible for service, Apple will charge the credit card for the authorized amount. If Apple does not require return of the replaced product or part, Apple will ship you free of charge a replacement product or part accompanied by any applicable instructions or requirements for disposal of the replaced product or part. In any case, Apple is not responsible for any labor costs you incur in respect to ERS or DIY parts service.

Apple may change the method by which Apple provides repair or replacement service to you and your Covered Equipment’s eligibility to receive a particular method of service.

Service will be limited to the options available in the country where you request service. Service options, parts availability and response times may vary. If service is not available for the Covered Equipment in a country that is not the country of purchase, you may be responsible for shipping and handling charges to facilitate service in a country where service is available. If you seek service in a country that is not the country of purchase, you must comply with all applicable import and export laws and regulations and be responsible for all custom duties, V.A.T. and other associated sales taxes and charges. For international service, Apple may repair or exchange products and parts with comparable products and parts that comply with local standards.

6. Your Responsibilities

To receive service or support under the Plan, you agree to (i) provide your Plan Agreement Number and a copy of your Plan’s original proof of purchase, (ii) provide information about the symptoms and causes of the issues with the Covered Equipment, (iii) respond to requests for information needed to diagnose or service the Covered Equipment, (iv) follow instructions Apple gives you, (v) update software to currently published releases prior to seeking service, and (vi) back up software and data residing on the Covered Equipment.

FOR DEVICES WITH STORAGE MEDIA, DURING HARDWARE SERVICE, APPLE WILL DELETE THE CONTENTS OF THE COVERED EQUIPMENT AND REFORMAT THE STORAGE MEDIA. Apple will return your Covered Equipment or provide a replacement as the Covered Equipment was originally configured, subject to applicable updates. Apple may install OS updates as part of hardware service that will prevent the Covered Equipment from reverting to an earlier version of the OS. Third-party applications installed on the Covered Equipment may not be compatible or work with the Covered Equipment as a result of the OS update. You will be responsible for reinstalling all other software programs, data, and passwords.

7. Limitation of Liability

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, APPLE AND ITS EMPLOYEES AND AGENTS, AND THE INSURER, WILL UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY SUBSEQUENT OWNER OF THE COVERED EQUIPMENT FOR ANY INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE COSTS OF RECOVERING, REPROGRAMMING, OR REPRODUCING ANY PROGRAM OR DATA OR THE FAILURE TO MAINTAIN THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF DATA, ANY LOSS OF BUSINESS, PROFITS, REVENUE OR ANTICIPATED SAVINGS, RESULTING FROM APPLE’S OR THE INSURER’S OBLIGATIONS UNDER THIS PLAN. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE LIMIT OF APPLE AND ITS EMPLOYEES' AND AGENTS’ AND THE INSURER’S LIABILITY TO YOU AND ANY SUBSEQUENT OWNER ARISING UNDER THIS PLAN SHALL NOT EXCEED THE ORIGINAL PRICE PAID FOR THIS PLAN. APPLE SPECIFICALLY DOES NOT WARRANT THAT (i) IT WILL BE ABLE TO REPAIR OR REPLACE THE COVERED EQUIPMENT WITHOUT RISK TO OR LOSS OF PROGRAMS OR DATA, (ii) IT WILL MAINTAIN THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF DATA, OR (iii) THE OPERATION OF THE PRODUCT WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE.

THE BENEFITS CONFERRED BY THIS PLAN ARE IN ADDITION TO ANY RIGHTS AND REMEDIES PROVIDED UNDER CONSUMER LAWS AND REGULATIONS. TO THE EXTENT THAT LIABILITY UNDER SUCH LAWS AND REGULATIONS MAY BE LIMITED, APPLE’S LIABILITY IS LIMITED, AT ITS SOLE OPTION, TO REPLACEMENT OR REPAIR OF THE COVERED EQUIPMENT OR SUPPLY OF THE SERVICE. SOME STATES OR PROVINCES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

8. Cancellation

8.1 Single-Pay Plans

You may cancel this Plan at any time for any reason. If you decide to cancel this Plan, you may call Apple, or you may send written notice with your Plan Agreement Number to the location appropriate to your country of purchase listed in Section 11. You must send a copy of the Plan’s original proof of purchase with your notice. Unless local law provides otherwise, cancellation refunds will be provided as follows:

(a) If you cancel within thirty (30) days of your Plan’s purchase, or receipt of this Plan, whichever occurs later, you will receive a full refund less the value of any benefits provided to you under the Plan.

(b) If you cancel more than thirty (30) days after your receipt of this Plan, you will receive a pro-rata refund of the original purchase price.

If you purchased a Monthly Plan from Apple, you may cancel by notifying Apple with your Plan Agreement Number and original proof of purchase to the location appropriate to your country of purchase listed in Section 11. Unless applicable local law provides otherwise, if you have made advance payments, cancellation will be deferred until midnight on the last day of the month for which the last monthly payment was paid. Your failure to timely and fully make any monthly payment will be deemed an expression of your intent to cancel your Plan and you will not be entitled to receive a refund of any monthly payments you have made. If your Monthly Plan was financed by a third party, Apple may return any refund owed to that financing entity.

Upon the effective date of your early cancellation, Apple’s future obligations under this Plan to you are fully extinguished.

The Plan covers the following equipment (collectively, the “Covered Equipment”): (i) the Apple Watch, HomePod, iPad (including an Apple Pencil purchased for use with your iPad, referred to as an “iPad Input Device”), iPhone or iPod listed on your Plan Confirmation (“Covered Device”), (ii) the Apple-branded accessories contained inside the original packaging of your Covered Device, and (iii) an AirPort Express or AirPort Extreme Base Station, and an AirPort Time Capsule, which are used with a HomePod or an iPad that is a Covered Device and purchased no earlier than two years before the HomePod or the iPad (“Connectivity Device”).

You can find the price of the Plan on the original sales receipt.

2. What is Covered?

2.1 Hardware Services for Defects or Consumed Battery (“Hardware Service”)

If during the Plan Term, you submit a valid claim by notifying Apple that a defect in materials and workmanship has arisen in the Covered Equipment or, in relation to Covered Equipment which uses an integrated rechargeable battery, where the capacity of the Covered Device's battery to hold an electrical charge is less than eighty percent (80%) of its original specifications, Apple will either: (i) repair the defect at no charge, using new parts or parts that are equivalent to new in performance and reliability, or (ii) 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. If Apple exchanges the Covered Equipment, the original product becomes Apple’s property and the replacement product is your property, with coverage effective for the replacement product for the remainder of the Plan Term.

2.2 Services for Accidental Damage from Handling (“ADH Service”)

If during the Plan Term you submit a valid claim by notifying Apple that the Covered Device has failed due to accidental damage from handling resulting from an unexpected and unintentional external event (such as, drops and damage caused by liquid contact) (“ADH”), Apple will, subject to your payment of the service fee described below, either (i) repair the defect using new or refurbished parts that are equivalent to new in performance and reliability, or (ii) exchange the Covered Device with a replacement product that is new or equivalent to new in performance and reliability. Each time you receive services for ADH is a “Service Event”. Exclusions apply as described below. Further, services for ADH expire and all of Apple’s obligations to you under this Section are discharged and fulfilled in their entirety once Apple has provided to you two (2) Service Events.

Important: Please refer to Section 3 for exclusions on provision of ADH Service.

The following service fees apply to each Service Event:

Apple Watch (excluding Hermès):

A$99/HK$548/SGD$98/MOP$588/฿2,300

Apple Watch Hermès:

A$119/HK$618/SGD$118/MOP$628/฿2,600

iPod:

A$45/HK$228/SGD$48/MOP$248/฿900

 

*Fees include applicable taxes payable by you

ADH Service for an iPad Input Device will count as a separate Service Event from ADH Service of your iPad and count towards your two Service Events, even if both your iPad and iPad Input Device are damaged at the same time.

For iPhone – Screen-Only Damage, the Covered Device must have no additional damage beyond the screen, including, but not limited to, a bent or dented enclosure, that would prevent Apple from replacing the screen on the Covered Device. Covered Devices with additional damage will be charged as iPhone All Other Damage. Screen-Only repairs are not available on devices other than iPhones.

The ADH coverage under the Plan may be provided to you as a benefit under an arrangement which Apple has entered into with the relevant insurer named in Section 11 below in the country or jurisdiction where you purchased the Plan (“Insurer”).

2.3 Technical Support

During the Plan Term, Apple will provide you with access to telephone and web-based technical support for Covered Equipment (“Technical Support”). Your Technical Support starts on expiration of the complimentary technical support provided by Apple, which starts on the date you purchase the Covered Equipment. Technical support may include assistance with installation, launch, configuration, troubleshooting, and recovery (excluding data recovery), including storing, retrieving, and managing files; interpreting system error messages; and determining when hardware service is required or ADH coverage may be applicable. Apple will provide support for the then-current version of the supported software, and the prior Major Release. For purposes of this section, the term “Major Release” means a significant version of software that is commercially released by Apple in a release number format such as “1.0” or “2.0” and which is not in beta or pre-release form.

Apple Technical Support is limited to the following: (i) the Covered Equipment, (ii) the Apple-branded Operating System (“OS”) and Apple-branded software applications that are pre-installed on or designed to operate with the Covered Equipment (“Consumer Software”), and (iii) connectivity issues between the Covered Equipment and a laptop or desktop computer that meets the Covered Equipment’s connectivity specifications and runs an operating system supported by the Covered Equipment. Exclusions apply as described below.

3. What is not Covered?

3.1 Hardware Service and ADH Service

Apple may restrict Hardware Service and ADH Service to the country where the Covered Equipment was originally purchased.

Apple will not provide Hardware Service or ADH Service in the following circumstances:

(a) to protect against normal wear and tear, or to repair cosmetic damage not affecting the functionality of the Covered Equipment;

(b) to conduct preventative maintenance;

(c) to replace Covered Equipment that is lost or stolen;

(d) to repair damage caused by reckless, abusive, willful or intentional conduct, or any use of the Covered Equipment in a manner not normal or intended by Apple;

(e) to install, remove or dispose of the Covered Equipment or the equipment provided to you while the Covered Equipment is being serviced;

(f) to repair damage caused by a product that is not Covered Equipment;

(g) to repair any damage to Covered Equipment (regardless of the cause) if the Covered Equipment has been opened, serviced, modified, installed or altered by anyone other than Apple or an authorized representative of Apple;

(h) to repair pre-existing conditions of the Covered Equipment if you purchased the Plan after you purchased the Covered Equipment;

(i) to repair any damage to Covered Equipment with a serial number that has been altered, defaced or removed; or

(j) to repair damages caused by fire, earthquake or other external causes.

Important: For Plans purchased in Thailand, additional exclusions apply. Refer to Section 11 for the additional exclusions applicable to your Plan.

Installation of third-party parts may affect your coverage. As a condition of receiving Hardware or ADH Service, all Covered Equipment must be returned to Apple in its entirety including all original parts or Apple-authorized replacement components. The restriction does not prejudice your consumer law rights.

3.2 Technical Support

Apple will not provide Technical Support in the following circumstances:

(a) For use of the OS and Consumer Software as server-based applications;

(b) For issues that could be resolved by upgrading software to the then-current version;

(c) For third-party products or their effects on or interactions with the Covered Equipment;

(d) For your use of a computer or OS that is not related to Consumer Software or to connectivity issues with the Covered Equipment;

(e) For software other than the Consumer Software;

(f) For any Consumer Software designated as “beta”, “prerelease”, “preview”, or similar designation; or

(g) For damage to, or loss of any software or data that was residing or recorded on the Covered Equipment (note: the Plan does not cover the recovery or reinstallation of software programs and user data).

4. How to Obtain Service and Support?

You may obtain service or Technical Support by calling Apple or accessing support.apple.com/country-selector. You must provide the Plan Agreement Number or Covered Device serial number. You must also, upon request, present your Plan Confirmation, and the original sales receipt for your Covered Device and your Plan.

5. Service Options

Apple will provide Hardware or ADH Service to you through one or more of these options:

(a) Carry-in service. Carry-in service is available for most Covered Equipment. Return the Covered Equipment to an Apple-owned retail store location or to a service provider authorized by Apple that offers carry-in service. Service will be performed for you at the store, or the store may send the Covered Equipment to an Apple repair service (“ARS”) site for service. You must promptly retrieve the Covered Equipment.

(b) Mail-in service. Direct mail-in service is available for most Covered Equipment. If Apple determines that your Covered Equipment is eligible for mail-in service, Apple will send you prepaid waybills (and, if needed, packaging material). You must ship the Covered Equipment to an ARS site in accordance with Apple’s instructions. Once service is complete, the ARS site will return the Covered Equipment to you. Apple will pay for shipping to and from your location if you follow all instructions.

(c) Express Replacement Service (“ERS”) or do-it-yourself (“DIY”) parts service. ERS is available for certain Covered Equipment. ERS is not available for iPod, iPhone Screen-Only Service Events, or Connectivity Devices. DIY parts service is available for many Covered Equipment. This allows you to service your own Covered Equipment. If Apple requires return of the replaced device or part, Apple may require a credit card authorization to serve as security for the retail price of the replacement device or part and applicable shipping costs until you return the replaced device as instructed, and if you are not able to provide credit card authorization, service may not be available to you in which case Apple will offer an alternative arrangement for service. If you fail to return the replaced Covered Equipment or part as instructed or return a replaced Covered Equipment or part that is ineligible for service, Apple will charge the credit card for the authorized amount. If Apple does not require return of the replaced product or part, Apple will ship you free of charge a replacement product or part accompanied by any applicable instructions or requirements for disposal of the replaced product or part. In any case, Apple is not responsible for any labor costs you incur in respect to ERS or DIY parts service.

Apple may change the method by which Apple provides repair or replacement service to you and your Covered Equipment’s eligibility to receive a particular method of service.

Service will be limited to the options available in the country where you request service. Service options, parts availability and response times may vary. If service is not available for the Covered Equipment in a country that is not the country of purchase, you may be responsible for shipping and handling charges to facilitate service in a country where service is available. If you seek service in a country that is not the country of purchase, you must comply with all applicable import and export laws and regulations and be responsible for all custom duties, V.A.T. and other associated sales taxes and charges. For international service, Apple may repair or exchange products and parts with comparable products and parts that comply with local standards.

6. Your Responsibilities

To receive service or support under the Plan, you agree to (i) provide your Plan Agreement Number and a copy of your Plan’s original proof of purchase, (ii) provide information about the symptoms and causes of the issues with the Covered Equipment, (iii) respond to requests for information needed to diagnose or service the Covered Equipment, (iv) follow instructions Apple gives you, (v) update software to currently published releases prior to seeking service, and (vi) back up software and data residing on the Covered Equipment.

FOR DEVICES WITH STORAGE MEDIA, DURING HARDWARE SERVICE, APPLE WILL DELETE THE CONTENTS OF THE COVERED EQUIPMENT AND REFORMAT THE STORAGE MEDIA. Apple will return your Covered Equipment or provide a replacement as the Covered Equipment was originally configured, subject to applicable updates. Apple may install OS updates as part of hardware service that will prevent the Covered Equipment from reverting to an earlier version of the OS. Third-party applications installed on the Covered Equipment may not be compatible or work with the Covered Equipment as a result of the OS update. You will be responsible for reinstalling all other software programs, data, and passwords.

7. Limitation of Liability

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, APPLE AND ITS EMPLOYEES AND AGENTS, AND THE INSURER, WILL UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY SUBSEQUENT OWNER OF THE COVERED EQUIPMENT FOR ANY INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE COSTS OF RECOVERING, REPROGRAMMING, OR REPRODUCING ANY PROGRAM OR DATA OR THE FAILURE TO MAINTAIN THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF DATA, ANY LOSS OF BUSINESS, PROFITS, REVENUE OR ANTICIPATED SAVINGS, RESULTING FROM APPLE’S OR THE INSURER’S OBLIGATIONS UNDER THIS PLAN. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE LIMIT OF APPLE AND ITS EMPLOYEES' AND AGENTS’ AND THE INSURER’S LIABILITY TO YOU AND ANY SUBSEQUENT OWNER ARISING UNDER THIS PLAN SHALL NOT EXCEED THE ORIGINAL PRICE PAID FOR THIS PLAN. APPLE SPECIFICALLY DOES NOT WARRANT THAT (i) IT WILL BE ABLE TO REPAIR OR REPLACE THE COVERED EQUIPMENT WITHOUT RISK TO OR LOSS OF PROGRAMS OR DATA, (ii) IT WILL MAINTAIN THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF DATA, OR (iii) THE OPERATION OF THE PRODUCT WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE.

THE BENEFITS CONFERRED BY THIS PLAN ARE IN ADDITION TO ANY RIGHTS AND REMEDIES PROVIDED UNDER CONSUMER LAWS AND REGULATIONS. TO THE EXTENT THAT LIABILITY UNDER SUCH LAWS AND REGULATIONS MAY BE LIMITED, APPLE’S LIABILITY IS LIMITED, AT ITS SOLE OPTION, TO REPLACEMENT OR REPAIR OF THE COVERED EQUIPMENT OR SUPPLY OF THE SERVICE. SOME STATES OR PROVINCES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

Each time you receive services for ADH is a “Service Event”. Exclusions apply as described below. Further, services for ADH expire and all of Apple’s obligations to you under this section are discharged and fulfilled in their entirety once Apple has provided to you two (2) Service Events.

Important: Please refer to Section 3 for exclusions on provision of ADH Service.

The following service fees apply to each Service Event:

Apple Watch (excluding Hermès):

A$99/HK$548/SGD$98/MOP$588

Apple Watch Hermès:

A$119/HK$618/SGD$118/MOP$628

HomePod:

A$55/HK$299

iPad:

A$65/HK$348/SGD$68/MOP$388

iPad Input Device:

A$45/HK$228/SGD$42/MOP$248

iPhone:

Screen-Only Damage:

A$45/HK$228/SGD$42/MOP$248

All Other Damage:

A$149/HK$788/SGD$148/MOP$848

iPod:

A$45/HK$228/SGD$48/MOP$248

*Fees include applicable taxes payable by you


 


ADH Service for an iPad Input Device will count as a separate Service Event from ADH Service of your iPad and count towards your two Service Events, even if both your iPad and iPad Input Device are damaged at the same time.

For iPhone – Screen-Only Damage, the Covered Device must have no additional damage beyond the screen, including, but not limited to, a bent or dented enclosure, that would prevent Apple from replacing the screen on the Covered Device. Covered Devices with additional damage will be charged as iPhone All Other Damage. Screen-Only repairs are not available on devices other than iPhones.

Depending on your country or jurisdiction of purchase, the ADH coverage under the Plan may be provided to you as a benefit under an arrangement which Apple has entered into with the relevant insurer named in Section 11 under the country or jurisdiction that you purchased the Plan in (“Insurer”).

2.3 Technical Support

During the Plan Term, Apple will provide you with access to telephone and web-based technical support for Covered Equipment (“Technical Support”). Your Technical Support starts on expiration of the complimentary technical support provided by Apple, which starts on the date you purchase the Covered Equipment. Technical support may include assistance with installation, launch, configuration, troubleshooting, and recovery (excluding data recovery), including storing, retrieving, and managing files; interpreting system error messages; and determining when hardware service is required or ADH coverage may be applicable. Apple will provide support for the then-current version of the supported software, and the prior Major Release. For purposes of this section, the term “Major Release” means a significant version of software that is commercially released by Apple in a release number format such as “1.0” or “2.0” and which is not in beta or pre-release form.

Apple Technical Support is limited to the following: (i) the Covered Equipment, (ii) the Apple-branded Operating System (“OS”) and Apple-branded software applications that are pre-installed on or designed to operate with the Covered Equipment (“Consumer Software”), and (iii) connectivity issues between the Covered Equipment and a laptop or desktop computer that meets the Covered Equipment’s connectivity specifications and runs an operating system supported by the Covered Equipment. Exclusions apply as described below.

3. What is not Covered?

3.1 Hardware Services and ADH Services

Apple may restrict Hardware Service and ADH Services to the country where the Covered Equipment was originally purchased.

Apple will not provide Hardware Services or ADH Services in the following circumstances:

(a) to protect against normal wear and tear, or to repair cosmetic damage not affecting the functionality of the Covered Equipment;

(b) to conduct preventative maintenance;

(c) to replace Covered Equipment that is lost or stolen;

(d) to repair damage caused by reckless, abusive, willful or intentional conduct, or any use of the Covered Equipment in a manner not normal or intended by Apple;

(e) services to install, remove or dispose of the Covered Equipment or the equipment provided to you while the Covered Equipment is being serviced;

(f) to repair damage caused by a product that is not Covered Equipment;

(g) to repair any damage to Covered Equipment (regardless of the cause) if the Covered Equipment has been opened, serviced, modified, or altered by anyone other than Apple or an authorized representative of Apple;

(h) to repair pre-existing conditions of the Covered Equipment if you purchased the Plan after you purchased the Covered Equipment;

(i) to repair any damage to Covered Equipment with a serial number that has been altered, defaced or removed; or

(j) to repair damages caused by fire, earthquake or other external causes.

Installation of third-party parts may affect your coverage. As a condition of receiving Hardware or ADH Services, all Covered Equipment must be returned to Apple in its entirety including all original parts or Apple-authorized replacement components. The restriction does not prejudice your consumer law rights.

3.2 Technical Support

Apple will not provide Technical Support in the following circumstances:

(a) For use of the OS and Consumer Software as server-based applications;

(b) For issues that could be resolved by upgrading software to the then-current version;

(c) For third-party products or their effects on or interactions with the Covered Equipment;

(d) For your use of a computer or OS that is not related to Consumer Software or to connectivity issues with the Covered Equipment;

(e) For software other than the Consumer Software;

(f) For any Consumer Software designated as “beta”, “prerelease”, “preview”, or similar designation; or

(g) For damage to, or loss of any software or data that was residing or recorded on the Covered Equipment (note: the Plan does not cover the recovery or reinstallation of software programs and user data).

4. How to Obtain Service and Support?

You may obtain service or Technical Support by calling Apple or accessing support.apple.com/country-selector. You must provide the Plan Agreement Number or Covered Device serial number. You must also, upon request, present your Plan Confirmation, and the original sales receipt for your Covered Device and your Plan.

5. Service Options

Apple will provide hardware services to you through one or more of these options:

(a) Carry-in service. Carry-in service is available for most Covered Equipment. Return the Covered Equipment to an Apple-owned retail store location or to a service provider authorized by Apple that offers carry-in service. Service will be performed for you at the store, or the store may send the Covered Equipment to an Apple repair service (“ARS”) site for service. You must promptly retrieve the Covered Equipment.

(b) Mail-in service. Direct mail-in service is available for most Covered Equipment. If Apple determines that your Covered Equipment is eligible for mail-in service, Apple will send you prepaid waybills (and, if needed, packaging material). You must ship the Covered Equipment to an ARS site in accordance with Apple’s instructions. Once service is complete, the ARS site will return the Covered Equipment to you. Apple will pay for shipping to and from your location if you follow all instructions.

(c) Express Replacement Service (“ERS”) or do-it-yourself (“DIY”) parts service. ERS is available for certain Covered Equipment. ERS is not available for iPod, iPhone Screen-Only claims, or Connectivity Devices. DIY parts service is available for many Covered Equipment. This allows you to service your own Covered Equipment. If Apple requires return of the replaced device or part, Apple may require a credit card authorization to serve as security for the retail price of the replacement device or part and applicable shipping costs until you return the replaced device as instructed, and if you are not able to provide credit card authorization, service may not be available to you in which case Apple will offer an alternative arrangement for service. If you fail to return the replaced Covered Equipment or part as instructed or return a replaced Covered Equipment or part that is ineligible for service, Apple will charge the credit card for the authorized amount. If Apple does not require return of the replaced product or part, Apple will ship you free of charge a replacement product or part accompanied by any applicable instructions or requirements for disposal of the replaced product or part. In any case, Apple is not responsible for any labor costs you incur in respect to ERS or DIY parts service.

Apple may change the method by which Apple provides repair or replacement service to you and your Covered Equipment’s eligibility to receive a particular method of service.

Service will be limited to the options available in the country where you request service. Service options, parts availability and response times may vary. If service is not available for the Covered Equipment in a country that is not the country of purchase, you may be responsible for shipping and handling charges to facilitate service in a country where service is available. If you seek service in a country that is not the country of purchase, you must comply with all applicable import and export laws and regulations and be responsible for all custom duties, V.A.T. and other associated sales taxes and charges. For international service, Apple may repair or exchange products and parts with comparable products and parts that comply with local standards.

6. Your Responsibilities

To receive service or support under the Plan, you agree to (i) provide your Plan Agreement Number and a copy of your Plan’s original proof of purchase, (ii) provide information about the symptoms and causes of the issues with the Covered Equipment, (iii) respond to requests for information needed to diagnose or service the Covered Equipment, (iv) follow instructions Apple gives you, (v) update software to currently published releases prior to seeking service, and (vi) back up software and data residing on the Covered Equipment.

FOR DEVICES WITH STORAGE MEDIA, DURING HARDWARE SERVICE, APPLE WILL DELETE THE CONTENTS OF THE COVERED EQUIPMENT AND REFORMAT THE STORAGE MEDIA. Apple will return your Covered Equipment or provide a replacement as the Covered Equipment was originally configured, subject to applicable updates. Apple may install OS updates as part of hardware service that will prevent the Covered Equipment from reverting to an earlier version of the OS. Third-party applications installed on the Covered Equipment may not be compatible or work with the Covered Equipment as a result of the OS update. You will be responsible for reinstalling all other software programs, data, and passwords.

7. Limitation of Liability

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, APPLE AND ITS EMPLOYEES AND AGENTS, AND THE INSURER, WILL UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY SUBSEQUENT OWNER OF THE COVERED EQUIPMENT FOR ANY INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE COSTS OF RECOVERING, REPROGRAMMING, OR REPRODUCING ANY PROGRAM OR DATA OR THE FAILURE TO MAINTAIN THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF DATA, ANY LOSS OF BUSINESS, PROFITS, REVENUE OR ANTICIPATED SAVINGS, RESULTING FROM APPLE’S OR THE INSURER’S OBLIGATIONS UNDER THIS PLAN. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE LIMIT OF APPLE AND ITS EMPLOYEES' AND AGENT’S AND THE INSURER’S LIABILITY TO YOU AND ANY SUBSEQUENT OWNER ARISING UNDER THE PLAN SHALL NOT EXCEED THE ORIGINAL PRICE PAID FOR THE PLAN. APPLE SPECIFICALLY DOES NOT WARRANT THAT (i) IT WILL BE ABLE TO REPAIR OR REPLACE THE COVERED EQUIPMENT WITHOUT RISK TO OR LOSS OF PROGRAMS OR DATA, (ii) IT WILL MAINTAIN THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF DATA, OR (iii) THAT THE OPERATION OF THE PRODUCT WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE.

THE BENEFITS CONFERRED BY THIS PLAN ARE IN ADDITION TO ANY RIGHTS AND REMEDIES PROVIDED UNDER CONSUMER LAWS AND REGULATIONS. TO THE EXTENT THAT LIABILITY UNDER SUCH LAWS AND REGULATIONS MAY BE LIMITED, APPLE’S LIABILITY IS LIMITED, AT ITS SOLE OPTION, TO REPLACEMENT OR REPAIR OF THE COVERED EQUIPMENT OR SUPPLY OF THE SERVICE. SOME STATES OR PROVINCES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

How Consumer Rights Affect this Plan

THE BENEFITS CONFERRED BY THIS PLAN ARE IN ADDITION TO ALL RIGHTS AND REMEDIES PROVIDED UNDER CONSUMER PROTECTION LAWS AND REGULATIONS. THIS PLAN SHALL NOT PREJUDICE THE RIGHTS GRANTED BY APPLICABLE CONSUMER LAW, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO RECEIVE REMEDIES UNDER STATUTORY WARRANTY LAW AND TO SEEK DAMAGES IN THE EVENT OF THE NON-PERFORMANCE BY APPLE OF ANY OF ITS CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATIONS.

1. The Plan

This contract (the “Plan”) governs the services provided by Apple under the above plans and includes the terms in this document, your Plan Confirmation (“Plan Confirmation“), and the original sales receipt for your Plan. Your Plan Confirmation will be provided to you at the time of purchase. If you purchased your Plan from Apple, you may obtain a copy of your Plan Confirmation by going to mysupport.apple.com/products.

Benefits under this Plan are additional to your rights under applicable laws, the manufacturer’s hardware warranty and any complimentary technical support. The terms of the Plan apply the same whether paid for on a one-time basis (“Single-Pay Plan”) or a monthly basis (“Installment Plan”) unless otherwise noted.

The Plan covers the following equipment (collectively, the “Covered Equipment”): (i) the Apple Watch, HomePod, iPad (including an Apple Pencil purchased at the same time as your iPad, referred to as an “iPad Input Device”), iPhone or iPod listed on your Plan Confirmation (“Covered Device”), (ii) the Apple-branded accessories contained inside the original packaging of your Covered Device, and (iii) an AirPort Express or AirPort Extreme Base Station, and an AirPort Time Capsule, which are used with a HomePod or an iPad that is a Covered Device and purchased no earlier than two years before the HomePod or the iPad (“Connectivity Device”).

Coverage begins when you purchase the Plan and continues through, unless cancelled, the date specified in your Plan Confirmation (the “Plan Term”).

You can find the price of the Plan on the original sales receipt.

2. What is Covered?

2.1 Hardware Services for Defects or Consumed Battery (“Hardware Service”)

If during the Plan Term, you submit a valid claim by notifying Apple that a defect in materials and workmanship has arisen in the Covered Equipment or, in relation to Covered Equipment which uses an integrated rechargeable battery, where the capacity of the Covered Device's battery to hold an electrical charge is less than eighty percent (80%) of its original specifications, Apple will either: (i) repair the defect at no charge, using new parts or parts that are equivalent to new in performance and reliability, or (ii) 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. If Apple exchanges the Covered Equipment, the original product becomes Apple’s property and the replacement product is your property, with coverage effective for the replacement product for the remainder of the Plan Term.

2.2 Services for Accidental Damage from Handling (“ADH Service”)

If during the Plan Term you submit a valid claim by notifying Apple that the Covered Device has failed due to accidental damage from handling resulting from an unexpected and unintentional external event (such as, drops and damage caused by liquid contact) (“ADH”), Apple will, subject to your payment of the service fee described below, either (i) repair the defect using new or refurbished parts that are equivalent to new in performance and reliability, or (ii) exchange the Covered Device with a replacement product that is new or equivalent to new in performance and reliability. Each time you receive services for ADH is a “Service Event”. Exclusions apply as described below. Further, services for ADH expire and all of Apple’s obligations to you under this section are discharged and fulfilled in their entirety once Apple has provided to you two (2) Service Events.

Important: Please refer to Section 3 for exclusions on provision of ADH Service.

The following service fees apply to each Service Event:

Apple Watch (excluding Edition and Hermès):

For iPhone – Screen-Only Damage, the Covered Device must have no additional damage beyond the screen, including, but not limited to, a bent or dented enclosure, that would prevent Apple from replacing the screen on the Covered Device.

Depending on your country or jurisdiction of purchase, the ADH coverage under the Plan may be provided to you as a benefit under an arrangement which Apple has entered into with the relevant insurer named in Section 11 under the country or jurisdiction that you purchased the Plan in (“Insurer”).

2.3 Technical Support

During the Plan Term, Apple will provide you with access to telephone and web-based technical support for Covered Equipment (“Technical Support”). Your Technical Support starts on expiration of the complimentary technical support provided by Apple, which starts on the date you purchase the Covered Equipment. Technical support may include assistance with installation, launch, configuration, troubleshooting, and recovery (excluding data recovery), including storing, retrieving, and managing files; interpreting system error messages; and determining when hardware service is required or ADH coverage may be applicable. Apple will provide support for the then-current version of the supported software, and the prior Major Release. For purposes of this section, the term “Major Release” means a significant version of software that is commercially released by Apple in a release number format such as “1.0” or “2.0” and which is not in beta or pre-release form.

Apple Technical Support is limited to the following: (i) the Covered Equipment, (ii) the Apple-branded Operating System (“OS”) and Apple-branded software applications that are pre-installed on or designed to operate with the Covered Equipment (“Consumer Software”), and (iii) connectivity issues between the Covered Equipment and a laptop or desktop computer that meets the Covered Equipment’s connectivity specifications and runs an operating system supported by the Covered Equipment.

3.2 Technical Support

Apple will not provide Technical Support in the following circumstances:

(a) For use of the OS and Consumer Software as server-based applications;

(b) For issues that could be resolved by upgrading software to the then-current version;

(c) For third-party products or their effects on or interactions with the Covered Equipment;

(d) For your use of a computer or OS that is not related to Consumer Software or to connectivity issues with the Covered Equipment;

(e) For software other than the Consumer Software;

(f) For any Consumer Software designated as “beta”, “prerelease”, “preview”, or similar designation; or

(g) For damage to, or loss of any software or data that was residing or recorded on the Covered Equipment (note: the Plan does not cover the recovery or reinstallation of software programs and user data).

4. How to Obtain Service and Support?

You may obtain service or Technical Support by calling Apple or accessing support.apple.com/country-selector. You must provide the Plan Agreement Number or Covered Device serial number. You must also, upon request, present your Plan Confirmation, and the original sales receipt for your Covered Device and your Plan.

5. Service Options

Apple will provide hardware services to you through one or more of these options:

(a) Carry-in service. Carry-in service is available for most Covered Equipment. Return the Covered Equipment to an Apple-owned retail store location or to a service provider authorized by Apple that offers carry-in service. Service will be performed for you at the store, or the store may send the Covered Equipment to an Apple repair service (“ARS”) site for service. You must promptly retrieve the Covered Equipment.

(b) Mail-in service. Direct mail-in service is available for most Covered Equipment. If Apple determines that your Covered Equipment is eligible for mail-in service, Apple will send you prepaid waybills (and, if needed, packaging material). You must ship the Covered Equipment to an ARS site in accordance with Apple’s instructions. Once service is complete, the ARS site will return the Covered Equipment to you. Apple will pay for shipping to and from your location if you follow all instructions.

(c) Express Replacement Service (“ERS”) or do-it-yourself (“DIY”) parts service. ERS is available for certain Covered Equipment. ERS is not available for iPod, iPhone Screen-Only claims, or Connectivity Devices. DIY parts service is available for many Covered Equipment. This allows you to service your own Covered Equipment. If Apple requires return of the replaced device or part, Apple may require a credit card authorization to serve as security for the retail price of the replacement device or part and applicable shipping costs until you return the replaced device as instructed, and if you are not able to provide credit card authorization, service may not be available to you in which case Apple will offer an alternative arrangement for service. If you fail to return the replaced Covered Equipment or part as instructed or return a replaced Covered Equipment or part that is ineligible for service, Apple will charge the credit card for the authorized amount. If Apple does not require return of the replaced product or part, Apple will ship you free of charge a replacement product or part accompanied by any applicable instructions or requirements for disposal of the replaced product or part. In any case, Apple is not responsible for any labor costs you incur in respect to ERS or DIY parts service.

Apple may change the method by which Apple provides repair or replacement service to you and your Covered Equipment’s eligibility to receive a particular method of service.

Service will be limited to the options available in the country where you request service. Service options, parts availability and response times may vary. If service is not available for the Covered Equipment in a country that is not the country of purchase, you may be responsible for shipping and handling charges to facilitate service in a country where service is available. If you seek service in a country that is not the country of purchase, you must comply with all applicable import and export laws and regulations and be responsible for all custom duties, V.A.T. and other associated sales taxes and charges. For international service, Apple may repair or exchange products and parts with comparable products and parts that comply with local standards.

6. Your Responsibilities

To receive service or support under the Plan, you agree to (i) provide your Plan Agreement Number and a copy of your Plan’s original proof of purchase, (ii) provide information about the symptoms and causes of the issues with the Covered Equipment, (iii) respond to requests for information needed to diagnose or service the Covered Equipment, (iv) follow instructions Apple gives you, (v) update software to currently published releases prior to seeking service, and (vi) back up software and data residing on the Covered Equipment.

FOR DEVICES WITH STORAGE MEDIA, DURING HARDWARE SERVICE, APPLE WILL DELETE THE CONTENTS OF THE COVERED EQUIPMENT AND REFORMAT THE STORAGE MEDIA. Apple will return your Covered Equipment or provide a replacement as the Covered Equipment was originally configured, subject to applicable updates. Apple may install OS updates as part of hardware service that will prevent the Covered Equipment from reverting to an earlier version of the OS. Third-party applications installed on the Covered Equipment may not be compatible or work with the Covered Equipment as a result of the OS update. You will be responsible for reinstalling all other software programs, data, and passwords.

7. Limitation of Liability

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, APPLE AND ITS EMPLOYEES AND AGENTS, AND THE INSURER, WILL UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY SUBSEQUENT OWNER OF THE COVERED EQUIPMENT FOR ANY INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE COSTS OF RECOVERING, REPROGRAMMING, OR REPRODUCING ANY PROGRAM OR DATA OR THE FAILURE TO MAINTAIN THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF DATA, ANY LOSS OF BUSINESS, PROFITS, REVENUE OR ANTICIPATED SAVINGS, RESULTING FROM APPLE’S OR THE INSURER’S OBLIGATIONS UNDER THIS PLAN. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE LIMIT OF APPLE AND ITS EMPLOYEES' AND AGENT’S AND THE INSURER’S LIABILITY TO YOU AND ANY SUBSEQUENT OWNER ARISING UNDER THE PLAN SHALL NOT EXCEED THE ORIGINAL PRICE PAID FOR THE PLAN. APPLE SPECIFICALLY DOES NOT WARRANT THAT (i) IT WILL BE ABLE TO REPAIR OR REPLACE THE COVERED EQUIPMENT WITHOUT RISK TO OR LOSS OF PROGRAMS OR DATA, (ii) IT WILL MAINTAIN THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF DATA, OR (iii) THAT THE OPERATION OF THE PRODUCT WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE.

THE BENEFITS CONFERRED BY THIS PLAN ARE IN ADDITION TO ANY RIGHTS AND REMEDIES PROVIDED UNDER CONSUMER LAWS AND REGULATIONS. TO THE EXTENT THAT LIABILITY UNDER SUCH LAWS AND REGULATIONS MAY BE LIMITED, APPLE’S LIABILITY IS LIMITED, AT ITS SOLE OPTION, TO REPLACEMENT OR REPAIR OF THE COVERED EQUIPMENT OR SUPPLY OF THE SERVICE. SOME STATES OR PROVINCES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

How Consumer Rights Affect this Plan

THE BENEFITS CONFERRED BY THIS PLAN ARE IN ADDITION TO ALL RIGHTS AND REMEDIES PROVIDED UNDER CONSUMER PROTECTION LAWS AND REGULATIONS. THIS PLAN SHALL NOT PREJUDICE THE RIGHTS GRANTED BY APPLICABLE CONSUMER LAW, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO RECEIVE REMEDIES UNDER STATUTORY WARRANTY LAW AND TO SEEK DAMAGES IN THE EVENT OF THE NON-PERFORMANCE BY APPLE OF ANY OF ITS CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATIONS.

1. The Plan

This contract (the “Plan”) governs the services provided by Apple under the above plans and includes the terms in this document, your Plan Confirmation ("Plan Confirmation"), and the original sales receipt for your Plan. Your Plan Confirmation will be provided to you at the time of purchase. If you purchased your Plan from Apple, you may obtain a copy of your Plan Confirmation by going to mysupport.apple.com/products.

Benefits under this Plan are additional to your rights under applicable laws, the manufacturer's hardware warranty and any complimentary technical support. The terms of the Plan apply the same whether paid for on a one-time basis (“Single Pay”) or a monthly basis ("Installment Plan") unless otherwise noted.

The Plan covers the following equipment (collectively, the "Covered Equipment"): (i) the Apple Watch, HomePod, iPad, iPhone or iPod listed on your Plan Confirmation ("Covered Device"), (ii) the Apple-branded accessories contained inside the original packaging of your Covered Device, and (iii) an AirPort Express or AirPort Extreme Base Station, and an AirPort Time Capsule, which are used with a HomePod or an iPad that is a Covered Device and purchased no earlier than two years before the HomePod or the iPad (“Connectivity Device”).

Coverage begins when you purchase the Plan and continues through, unless cancelled, the date specified in your Plan Confirmation (the "Plan Term”). If the Covered Device is an Apple Watch (Edition or Hermès), the Plan Term is three (3) years from the date of purchase of the Covered Device; for all other devices (including all other models of Apple Watch), the Plan Term is two (2) years from the date of purchase of the Covered Device.

You can find the price of the Plan on the original sales receipt.

2. What is Covered?

2.1 Hardware Services for Defects or Consumed Battery ("Hardware Service")

If during the Plan Term, you submit a valid claim by notifying Apple that a defect in materials and workmanship has arisen in the Covered Equipment or, in relation to Covered Equipment which uses an integrated rechargeable battery, where the capacity of the Covered Device's battery to hold an electrical charge is less than eighty percent (80%) of its original specifications, Apple will either: (i) repair the defect at no charge, using new parts or parts that are equivalent to new in performance and reliability, or (ii) 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. If Apple exchanges the Covered Equipment, the original product becomes Apple’s property and the replacement product is your property, with coverage effective for the replacement product for the remainder of the Plan Term.

2.2 Services for Accidental Damage from Handling ("ADH Service")

If, during the Plan Term, you submit a valid claim by notifying Apple that the Covered Device has failed due to accidental damage from handling resulting from an unexpected and unintentional external event (such as, drops and damage caused by liquid contact) (“ADH”), Apple will, subject to your payment of the service fee described below, either (i) repair the defect using new or refurbished parts that are equivalent to new in performance and reliability, or (ii) exchange the Covered Device with a replacement product that is new or equivalent to new in performance and reliability. Each time you receive services for ADH is a “Service Event”. Exclusions apply as described below. Further, services for ADH expire and all of Apple’s obligations to you under this section are discharged and fulfilled in their entirety once Apple has provided to you two (2) Service Events.

Depending on your country or jurisdiction of purchase, the ADH coverage under the Plan may be provided to you as a benefit under an arrangement which Apple has entered into with the relevant insurer named in Section 11 under the country or jurisdiction that you purchased the Plan in (“Insurer”).

2.3 Technical Support

During the Plan Term, Apple will provide you with access to telephone and web-based technical support for Covered Equipment ("Technical Support"). Your Technical Support starts on expiration of the complimentary technical support provided by Apple, which starts on the date you purchase the Covered Equipment. Technical support may include assistance with installation, launch, configuration, troubleshooting, and recovery (excluding data recovery), including storing, retrieving, and managing files; interpreting system error messages; and determining when hardware service is required or ADH coverage may be applicable. Apple will provide support for the then-current version of the supported software, and the prior Major Release. For purposes of this section, the term "Major Release" means a significant version of software that is commercially released by Apple in a release number format such as "1.0" or "2.0" and which is not in beta or pre-release form.

Apple Technical Support is limited to the following: (i) the Covered Equipment, (ii) the Apple-branded Operating System (“OS”) and Apple-branded software applications that are pre-installed on or designed to operate with the Covered Equipment (“Consumer Software”), and (iii) connectivity issues between the Covered Equipment and a laptop or desktop computer that meets the Covered Equipment’s connectivity specifications and runs an operating system supported by the Covered Equipment. Exclusions apply as described below.

3. What is not Covered?

3.1 Hardware Services and ADH Services

Apple may restrict Hardware Service and ADH Services to the country where the Covered Equipment was originally purchased.

Apple will not provide Hardware Services or ADH Services in the following circumstances:

(a) to protect against normal wear and tear, or to repair cosmetic damage not affecting the functionality of the Covered Equipment;

(b) to conduct preventative maintenance;

(c) to replace Covered Equipment that is lost or stolen;

(d) to repair damage caused by reckless, abusive, willful or intentional conduct, or any use of the Covered Equipment in a manner not normal or intended by Apple;

(e) services to install, remove or dispose of the Covered Equipment or the equipment provided to you while the Covered Equipment is being serviced;

(f) to repair damage caused by a product that is not Covered Equipment;

(g) to repair any damage to Covered Equipment (regardless of the cause) if the Covered Equipment has been opened, serviced, modified, or altered by anyone other than Apple or an authorized representative of Apple;

(h) to repair pre-existing conditions of the Covered Equipment if you purchased the Plan after you purchased the Covered Equipment;

(i) to repair any damage to Covered Equipment with a serial number that has been altered, defaced or removed; or

(j) to repair damages caused by fire, earthquake or other external causes.

Installation of third party parts may affect your coverage. As a condition of receiving Hardware or ADH Services, all Covered Equipment must be returned to Apple in its entirety including all original parts or Apple-authorized replacement components. The restriction does not prejudice your consumer law rights.

(b) For issues that could be resolved by upgrading software to the then-current version;

(g) For damage to, or loss of any software or data that was residing or recorded on the Covered Equipment (note: the Plan does not cover the recovery or reinstallation of software programs and user data).

4. How to Obtain Service and Support?

You may obtain service or Technical Support by calling Apple or accessing support.apple.com/country-selector. You must provide the Plan Agreement Number or Covered Device serial number. You must also, upon request, present your Plan Confirmation, and the original sales receipt for your Covered Device and your Plan.

5. Service Options

Apple will provide hardware services to you through one or more of these options:

(a) Carry-in service. Carry-in service is available for most Covered Equipment. Return the Covered Equipment to an Apple-owned retail store location or to a service provider authorized by Apple that offers carry-in service. Service will be performed for you at the store, or the store may send the Covered Equipment to an Apple repair service (“ARS”) site for service. You must promptly retrieve the Covered Equipment.

(b) Mail-in service. Direct mail-in service is available for most Covered Equipment. If Apple determines that your Covered Equipment is eligible for mail-in service, Apple will send you prepaid waybills (and, if needed, packaging material). You must ship the Covered Equipment to an ARS site in accordance with Apple’s instructions. Once service is complete, the ARS site will return the Covered Equipment to you. Apple will pay for shipping to and from your location if you follow all instructions.

(c) Express Replacement Service (“ERS”) or do-it-yourself (“DIY”) parts service. ERS is available for certain Covered Equipment. ERS is not available for iPod, iPhone Screen Only claims or Connectivity Devices. DIY parts service is available for many Covered Equipment. This allows you to service your own Covered Equipment. If Apple requires return of the replaced device or part, Apple may require a credit card authorization to serve as security for the retail price of the replacement device or part and applicable shipping costs until you return the replaced device as instructed, and if you are not able to provide credit card authorization, service may not be available to you in which case Apple will offer an alternative arrangement for service. If you fail to return the replaced Covered Equipment or part as instructed or return a replaced Covered Equipment or part that is ineligible for service, Apple will charge the credit card for the authorized amount. If Apple does not require return of the replaced product or part, Apple will ship you free of charge a replacement product or part accompanied by any applicable instructions or requirements for disposal of the replaced product or part. In any case, Apple is not responsible for any labor costs you incur in respect to ERS or DIY parts service.

Apple may change the method by which Apple provides repair or replacement service to you, and your Covered Equipment's eligibility to receive a particular method of service.

Service will be limited to the options available in the country where you request service. Service options, parts availability and response times may vary. If service is not available for the Covered Equipment in a country that is not the country of purchase, you may be responsible for shipping and handling charges to facilitate service in a country where service is available. If you seek service in a country that is not the country of purchase, you must comply with all applicable import and export laws and regulations and be responsible for all custom duties, V.A.T. and other associated sales taxes and charges. For international service, Apple may repair or exchange products and parts with comparable products and parts that comply with local standards.

6. Your Responsibilities

To receive service or support under the Plan, you agree to (i) provide your Plan Agreement Number and a copy of your Plan’s original proof of purchase, (ii) provide information about the symptoms and causes of the issues with the Covered Equipment, (iii) respond to requests for information needed to diagnose or service the Covered Equipment, (iv) follow instructions Apple gives you, (v) update software to currently published releases prior to seeking service, and (vi) back up software and data residing on the Covered Equipment.

FOR DEVICES WITH STORAGE MEDIA, DURING HARDWARE SERVICE, APPLE WILL DELETE THE CONTENTS OF THE COVERED EQUIPMENT AND REFORMAT THE STORAGE MEDIA. Apple will return your Covered Equipment or provide a replacement as the Covered Equipment was originally configured, subject to applicable updates. Apple may install OS updates as part of hardware service that will prevent the Covered Equipment from reverting to an earlier version of the OS. Third party applications installed on the Covered Equipment may not be compatible or work with the Covered Equipment as a result of the OS update. You will be responsible for reinstalling all other software programs, data and passwords.

7. Limitation of Liability

How Consumer Rights Affect this Plan

THE BENEFITS CONFERRED BY THIS PLAN ARE IN ADDITION TO ALL RIGHTS AND REMEDIES PROVIDED UNDER CONSUMER PROTECTION LAWS AND REGULATIONS. THIS PLAN SHALL NOT PREJUDICE THE RIGHTS GRANTED BY APPLICABLE CONSUMER LAW, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO RECEIVE REMEDIES UNDER STATUTORY WARRANTY LAW AND TO SEEK DAMAGES IN THE EVENT OF THE NON-PERFORMANCE BY APPLE OF ANY OF ITS CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATIONS.

1. The Plan

This contract (the “Plan”) governs the services provided by Apple under the above plans and includes the terms in this document, your Plan Confirmation ("Plan Confirmation"), and the original sales receipt for your Plan. Your Plan Confirmation will be provided to you at the time of purchase. If you purchased your Plan from Apple, you may obtain a copy of your Plan Confirmation by going to mysupport.apple.com/products.

Benefits under this Plan are additional to your rights under applicable laws, the manufacturer's hardware warranty and any complimentary technical support. The terms of the Plan apply the same whether paid for on a one-time basis (“Single Pay”) or a monthly basis ("Installment Plan") unless otherwise noted.

The Plan covers the following equipment (collectively, the "Covered Equipment"): (i) the Apple Watch, HomePod, iPad, iPhone, or iPod listed on your Plan Confirmation ("Covered Device"), (ii) the Apple-branded accessories contained inside the original packaging of your Covered Device, and (iii) an AirPort Express or AirPort Extreme Base Station, and an AirPort Time Capsule, which are used with a HomePod or an iPad that is a Covered Device and purchased no earlier than two years before the HomePod or the iPad (“Connectivity Device”).

Coverage begins when you purchase the Plan and continues through, unless cancelled, the date specified in your Plan Confirmation (the "Plan Term”). If the Covered Device is an Apple Watch (Edition or Hermès), the Plan Term is three (3) years from the date of purchase of the Covered Device; for all other devices (including all other models of Apple Watch), the Plan Term is two (2) years from the date of purchase of the Covered Device.

You can find the price of the Plan on the original sales receipt.

2. What is Covered?

2.1 Hardware Services for Defects or Consumed Battery ("Hardware Service")

If during the Plan Term, you submit a valid claim by notifying Apple that a defect in materials and workmanship has arisen in the Covered Equipment or, in relation to Covered Equipment which uses an integrated rechargeable battery, where the capacity of the Covered Device's battery to hold an electrical charge is less than eighty percent (80%) of its original specifications, Apple will either: (i) repair the defect at no charge, using new parts or parts that are equivalent to new in performance and reliability, or (ii) 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. If Apple exchanges the Covered Equipment, the original product becomes Apple’s property and the replacement product is your property, with coverage effective for the replacement product for the remainder of the Plan Term.

2.2 Services for Accidental Damage from Handling ("ADH Service")

If, during the Plan Term, you submit a valid claim by notifying Apple that the Covered Device has failed due to accidental damage from handling resulting from an unexpected and unintentional external event (such as, drops and damage caused by liquid contact) (“ADH”), Apple will, subject to your payment of the service fee described below, either (i) repair the defect using new or refurbished parts that are equivalent to new in performance and reliability, or (ii) exchange the Covered Device with a replacement product that is new or equivalent to new in performance and reliability. Each time you receive services for ADH is a “Service Event”. Exclusions apply as described below. Further, services for ADH expire and all of Apple’s obligations to you under this section are discharged and fulfilled in their entirety once Apple has provided to you two (2) Service Events.

Important: Please refer to Section 3 for exclusions on provision of ADH Service.

The following service fees apply to each Service Event:

 

Apple Watch (excluding Edition and Hermès):

A$99/HK$548/SGD$98/MOP$588

For iPhone - Screen Only Damage, the Covered Device must have no additional damage beyond the screen, including, but not limited to, a bent or dented enclosure, that would prevent Apple from replacing the screen on the Covered Device. Covered Devices with additional damage will be charged as iPhone All Other Damage. Screen Only repairs are not available on devices other than iPhones.

Depending on your country or jurisdiction of purchase, the ADH coverage under the Plan may be provided to you as a benefit under an arrangement which Apple has entered into with the relevant insurer named in Section 11 under the country or jurisdiction that you purchased the Plan in (“Insurer”).

2.3 Technical Support

During the Plan Term, Apple will provide you with access to telephone and web-based technical support for Covered Equipment ("Technical Support"). Your Technical Support starts on expiration of the complimentary technical support provided by Apple, which starts on the date you purchase the Covered Equipment. Technical support may include assistance with installation, launch, configuration, troubleshooting, and recovery (excluding data recovery), including storing, retrieving, and managing files; interpreting system error messages; and determining when hardware service is required or ADH coverage may be applicable. Apple will provide support for the then-current version of the supported software, and the prior Major Release. For purposes of this section, the term "Major Release" means a significant version of software that is commercially released by Apple in a release number format such as "1.0" or "2.0" and which is not in beta or pre-release form.

Apple Technical Support is limited to the following: (i) the Covered Equipment, (ii) the Apple-branded Operating System (“OS”) and Apple-branded software applications that are pre-installed on or designed to operate with the Covered Equipment (“Consumer Software”), and (iii) connectivity issues between the Covered Equipment and a laptop or desktop computer that meets the Covered Equipment’s connectivity specifications and runs an operating system supported by the Covered Equipment. Exclusions apply as described below.

3. What is not Covered?

3.1 Hardware Services and ADH Services

Apple may restrict Hardware Service and ADH Services to the country where the Covered Equipment was originally purchased.

Apple will not provide Hardware Services or ADH Services in the following circumstances:

(a) to protect against normal wear and tear, or to repair cosmetic damage not affecting the functionality of the Covered Equipment;

(b) to conduct preventative maintenance;

(c) to replace Covered Equipment that is lost or stolen;

(d) to repair damage caused by reckless, abusive, willful or intentional conduct, or any use of the Covered Equipment in a manner not normal or intended by Apple;

(e) services to install, remove or dispose of the Covered Equipment or the equipment provided to you while the Covered Equipment is being serviced;

(f) to repair damage caused by a product that is not Covered Equipment;

(g) to repair any damage to Covered Equipment (regardless of the cause) if the Covered Equipment has been opened, serviced, modified, or altered by anyone other than Apple or an authorized representative of Apple;

(h) to repair pre-existing conditions of the Covered Equipment if you purchased the Plan after you purchased the Covered Equipment;

(i) to repair any damage to Covered Equipment with a serial number that has been altered, defaced or removed; or

(j) to repair damages caused by fire, earthquake or other external causes.

Installation of third party parts may affect your coverage. As a condition of receiving Hardware or ADH Services, all Covered Equipment must be returned to Apple in its entirety including all original parts or Apple-authorized replacement components. The restriction does not prejudice your consumer law rights.

3.2 Technical Support

Apple will not provide Technical Support in the following circumstances:

(a) For use of the OS and Consumer Software as server-based applications;

(b) For issues that could be resolved by upgrading software to the then-current version;

(c) For third-party products or their effects on or interactions with the Covered Equipment;

(d) For your use of a computer or OS that is not related to Consumer Software or to connectivity issues with the Covered Equipment;

(e) For software other than the Consumer Software;

(f) For any Consumer Software designated as “beta”, “prerelease,” or “preview” or similarly; or

(g) For damage to, or loss of any software or data that was residing or recorded on the Covered Equipment (note: the Plan does not cover the recovery or reinstallation of software programs and user data).

4. How to Obtain Service and Support?

You may obtain service or Technical Support by calling Apple or accessing support.apple.com/country-selector. You must provide the Plan Agreement Number or Covered Device serial number. You must also, upon request, present your Plan Confirmation, and the original sales receipt for your Covered Device and your Plan.

5. Service Options

Apple will provide hardware services to you through one or more of these options:

(a) Carry-in service. Carry-in service is available for most Covered Equipment. Return the Covered Equipment to an Apple-owned retail store location or to a service provider authorized by Apple that offers carry-in service. Service will be performed for you at the store, or the store may send the Covered Equipment to an Apple repair service (“ARS”) site for service. You must promptly retrieve the Covered Equipment.

(b) Mail-in service. Direct mail-in service is available for most Covered Equipment. If Apple determines that your Covered Equipment is eligible for mail-in service, Apple will send you prepaid waybills (and, if needed, packaging material). You must ship the Covered Equipment to an ARS site in accordance with Apple’s instructions. Once service is complete, the ARS site will return the Covered Equipment to you. Apple will pay for shipping to and from your location if you follow all instructions.

(c) Express Replacement Service (“ERS”) or do-it-yourself (“DIY”) parts service. ERS is available for certain Covered Equipment. ERS is not available for iPod, iPhone Screen Only claims or Connectivity Devices. DIY parts service is available for many Covered Equipment. This allows you to service your own Covered Equipment. If Apple requires return of the replaced device or part, Apple may require a credit card authorization to serve as security for the retail price of the replacement device or part and applicable shipping costs until you return the replaced device as instructed, and if you are not able to provide credit card authorization, service may not be available to you in which case Apple will offer an alternative arrangement for service. If you fail to return the replaced Covered Equipment or part as instructed or return a replaced Covered Equipment or part that is ineligible for service, Apple will charge the credit card for the authorized amount. If Apple does not require return of the replaced product or part, Apple will ship you free of charge a replacement product or part accompanied by any applicable instructions or requirements for disposal of the replaced product or part. In any case, Apple is not responsible for any labor costs you incur in respect to ERS or DIY parts service.

Apple may change the method by which Apple provides repair or replacement service to you, and your Covered Equipment's eligibility to receive a particular method of service.

Service will be limited to the options available in the country where you request service. Service options, parts availability and response times may vary. If service is not available for the Covered Equipment in a country that is not the country of purchase, you may be responsible for shipping and handling charges to facilitate service in a country where service is available. If you seek service in a country that is not the country of purchase, you must comply with all applicable import and export laws and regulations and be responsible for all custom duties, V.A.T. and other associated sales taxes and charges. For international service, Apple may repair or exchange products and parts with comparable products and parts that comply with local standards.

6. Your Responsibilities

To receive service or support under the Plan, you agree to (i) provide your Plan Agreement Number and a copy of your Plan’s original proof of purchase, (ii) provide information about the symptoms and causes of the issues with the Covered Equipment, (iii) respond to requests for information needed to diagnose or service the Covered Equipment, (iv) follow instructions Apple gives you, (v) update software to currently published releases prior to seeking service, and (vi) back up software and data residing on the Covered Equipment.

FOR DEVICES WITH STORAGE MEDIA, DURING HARDWARE SERVICE, APPLE WILL DELETE THE CONTENTS OF THE COVERED EQUIPMENT AND REFORMAT THE STORAGE MEDIA. Apple will return your Covered Equipment or provide a replacement as the Covered Equipment was originally configured, subject to applicable updates. Apple may install OS updates as part of hardware service that will prevent the Covered Equipment from reverting to an earlier version of the OS. Third party applications installed on the Covered Equipment may not be compatible or work with the Covered Equipment as a result of the OS update. You will be responsible for reinstalling all other software programs, data and passwords.

7. Limitation of Liability

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, APPLE AND ITS EMPLOYEES AND AGENTS, AND THE INSURER, WILL UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY SUBSEQUENT OWNER OF THE COVERED EQUIPMENT FOR ANY INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE COSTS OF RECOVERING, REPROGRAMMING, OR REPRODUCING ANY PROGRAM OR DATA OR THE FAILURE TO MAINTAIN THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF DATA, ANY LOSS OF BUSINESS, PROFITS, REVENUE OR ANTICIPATED SAVINGS, RESULTING FROM APPLE’S OR THE INSURER’S OBLIGATIONS UNDER THIS PLAN. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE LIMIT OF APPLE AND ITS EMPLOYEES' AND AGENT’S AND THE INSURER’S LIABILITY TO YOU AND ANY SUBSEQUENT OWNER ARISING UNDER THE PLAN SHALL NOT EXCEED THE ORIGINAL PRICE PAID FOR THE PLAN. APPLE SPECIFICALLY DOES NOT WARRANT THAT (i) IT WILL BE ABLE TO REPAIR OR REPLACE THE COVERED EQUIPMENT WITHOUT RISK TO OR LOSS OF PROGRAMS OR DATA, (ii) IT WILL MAINTAIN THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF DATA, OR (iii) THAT THE OPERATION OF THE PRODUCT WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE.

THE BENEFITS CONFERRED BY THIS PLAN ARE IN ADDITION TO ANY RIGHTS AND REMEDIES PROVIDED UNDER CONSUMER LAWS AND REGULATIONS. TO THE EXTENT THAT LIABILITY UNDER SUCH LAWS AND REGULATIONS MAY BE LIMITED, APPLE’S LIABILITY IS LIMITED, AT ITS SOLE OPTION, TO REPLACEMENT OR REPAIR OF THE COVERED EQUIPMENT OR SUPPLY OF THE SERVICE. SOME STATES OR PROVINCES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

How Consumer Rights Affect this Plan

THE BENEFITS CONFERRED BY THIS PLAN ARE IN ADDITION TO ALL RIGHTS AND REMEDIES PROVIDED UNDER CONSUMER PROTECTION LAWS AND REGULATIONS. THIS PLAN SHALL NOT PREJUDICE THE RIGHTS GRANTED BY APPLICABLE CONSUMER LAW, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO RECEIVE REMEDIES UNDER STATUTORY WARRANTY LAW AND TO SEEK DAMAGES IN THE EVENT OF THE NON-PERFORMANCE BY APPLE OF ANY OF ITS CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATIONS.

1. The Plan

This contract (the “Plan”) governs the services provided by Apple under the above plans and includes the terms in this document, your Plan Confirmation ("Plan Confirmation"), and the original sales receipt for your Plan. Your Plan Confirmation will be provided to you at the time of purchase. If you purchased your Plan from Apple, you may obtain a copy of your Plan Confirmation by going to mysupport.apple.com/products.

Benefits under this Plan are additional to your rights under applicable laws, the manufacturer's hardware warranty and any complimentary technical support. The terms of the Plan apply the same whether paid for on a one-time basis (“Single Pay”) or a monthly basis ("Installment Plan") unless otherwise noted.

The Plan covers the following equipment (collectively, the "Covered Equipment"): (i) the Apple-branded iPhone, iPad, iPod, or Apple Watch listed on your Plan Confirmation ("Covered Device"), (ii) the Apple-branded accessories contained inside the original packaging of your Covered Device, and (iii) an AirPort Express, AirPort Extreme Base Station, or AirPort Time Capsule used with an iPad that is a Covered Device and purchased no earlier than two years before the iPad (“iPad Connectivity Device”).

Coverage begins when you purchase the Plan and continues through, unless cancelled, the date specified in your Plan Confirmation (the "Plan Term”). If the Covered Device is an Apple Watch (Edition or Hermès), the Plan Term is three (3) years from the date of purchase of the Covered Device; for all other devices (including all other models of Apple Watch), the Plan Term is two (2) years from the date of purchase of the Covered Device.

You can find the price of the Plan on the original sales receipt.

2. What is Covered?

2.1 Hardware Services for Defects or Consumed Battery ("Hardware Service")

If during the Plan Term, you submit a valid claim by notifying Apple that a defect in materials and workmanship has arisen in the Covered Equipment or, in relation to Covered Equipment which uses an integrated rechargeable battery, where the capacity of the Covered Device's battery to hold an electrical charge is less than eighty percent (80%) of its original specifications, Apple will either: (i) repair the defect at no charge, using new parts or parts that are equivalent to new in performance and reliability, or (ii) 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. If Apple exchanges the Covered Equipment, the original product becomes Apple’s property and the replacement product is your property, with coverage effective for the replacement product for the remainder of the Plan Term.

2.2 Services for Accidental Damage from Handling ("ADH Service")

If, during the Plan Term, you submit a valid claim by notifying Apple that the Covered Device has failed due to accidental damage from handling resulting from an unexpected and unintentional external event (such as, drops and damage caused by liquid contact) (“ADH”), Apple will, subject to your payment of the service fee described below, either (i) repair the defect using new or refurbished parts that are equivalent to new in performance and reliability, or (ii) exchange the Covered Device with a replacement product that is new or equivalent to new in performance and reliability. Each time you receive services for ADH is a “Service Event”. Exclusions apply as described below. Further, services for ADH expire and all of Apple’s obligations to you under this section are discharged and fulfilled in their entirety once Apple has provided to you two (2) Service Events.

Important: Please refer to Section 3 for exclusions on provision of ADH Service.

The following service fees apply to each Service Event:

Apple Watch (excluding Edition and Hermès):

A$99/HK$548/SGD$98/MOP$588

For iPhone - Screen Only Damage, the Covered Device must have no additional damage beyond the screen, including, but not limited to, a bent or dented enclosure, that would prevent Apple from replacing the screen on the Covered Device. Covered Devices with additional damage will be charged as iPhone All Other Damage. Screen Only repairs are not available on devices other than iPhones.

Depending on your country or jurisdiction of purchase, the ADH coverage under the Plan may be provided to you as a benefit under an arrangement which Apple has entered into with the relevant insurer named in Section 11 under the country or jurisdiction that you purchased the Plan in (“Insurer”).

2.3 Technical Support

During the Plan Term, Apple will provide you with access to telephone and web-based technical support for Covered Equipment ("Technical Support"). Your Technical Support starts on expiration of the complimentary technical support provided by Apple, which starts on the date you purchase the Covered Equipment. Technical support may include assistance with installation, launch, configuration, troubleshooting, and recovery (excluding data recovery), including storing, retrieving, and managing files; interpreting system error messages; and determining when hardware service is required or ADH coverage may be applicable. Apple will provide support for the then-current version of the supported software, and the prior Major Release. For purposes of this section, the term "Major Release" means a significant version of software that is commercially released by Apple in a release number format such as "1.0" or "2.0" and which is not in beta or pre-release form.

Apple Technical Support is limited to the following: (i) the Covered Equipment, (ii) the Apple-branded Operating System (“OS”) and Apple-branded software applications that are pre-installed on or designed to operate with the Covered Equipment (“Consumer Software”), and (iii) connectivity issues between the Covered Equipment and a laptop or desktop computer that meets the Covered Equipment’s connectivity specifications and runs an operating system supported by the Covered Equipment. Exclusions apply as described below.

3. What is not Covered?

3.1 Hardware Services and ADH Services

Apple may restrict Hardware Service and ADH Services to the country where the Covered Equipment was originally purchased.

Apple will not provide Hardware Services or ADH Services in the following circumstances:

(a) to protect against normal wear and tear, or to repair cosmetic damage not affecting the functionality of the Covered Equipment;

(b) to conduct preventative maintenance;

(c) to replace Covered Equipment that is lost or stolen;

(d) to repair damage caused by reckless, abusive, willful or intentional conduct, or any use of the Covered Equipment in a manner not normal or intended by Apple;

(e) services to install, remove or dispose of the Covered Equipment or the equipment provided to you while the Covered Equipment is being serviced;

(f) to repair damage caused by a product that is not Covered Equipment;

(g) to repair any damage to Covered Equipment (regardless of the cause) if the Covered Equipment has been opened, serviced, modified, or altered by anyone other than Apple or an authorized representative of Apple;

(h) to repair pre-existing conditions of the Covered Equipment if you purchased the Plan after you purchased the Covered Equipment;

(i) to repair any damage to Covered Equipment with a serial number that has been altered, defaced or removed; or

(j) to repair damages caused by fire, earthquake or other external causes.

Installation of third party parts may affect your coverage. As a condition of receiving Hardware or ADH Services, all Covered Equipment must be returned to Apple in its entirety including all original parts or Apple-authorized replacement components. The restriction does not prejudice your consumer law rights.

3.2 Technical Support

Apple will not provide Technical Support in the following circumstances:

(a) For use of the OS and Consumer Software as server-based applications;

(b) For issues that could be resolved by upgrading software to the then-current version;

(c) For third-party products or their effects on or interactions with the Covered Equipment;

(d) For your use of a computer or OS that is not related to Consumer Software or to connectivity issues with the Covered Equipment;

(e) For software other than the Consumer Software;

(f) For any Consumer Software designated as “beta”, “prerelease,” or “preview” or similarly; or

(g) For damage to, or loss of any software or data that was residing or recorded on the Covered Equipment (note: the Plan does not cover the recovery or reinstallation of software programs and user data).

4. How to Obtain Service and Support?

You may obtain service or Technical Support by calling Apple or accessing support.apple.com/country-selector. You must provide the Plan Agreement Number or Covered Device serial number. You must also, upon request, present your Plan Confirmation, and the original sales receipt for your Covered Device and your Plan.

5. Service Options

Apple will provide hardware services to you through one or more of these options:

(a) Carry-in service. Carry-in service is available for most Covered Equipment. Return the Covered Equipment to an Apple-owned retail store location or to a service provider authorized by Apple that offers carry-in service. Service will be performed for you at the store, or the store may send the Covered Equipment to an Apple repair service (“ARS”) site for service. You must promptly retrieve the Covered Equipment.

(b) Mail-in service. Direct mail-in service is available for most Covered Equipment. If Apple determines that your Covered Equipment is eligible for mail-in service, Apple will send you prepaid waybills (and, if needed, packaging material). You must ship the Covered Equipment to an ARS site in accordance with Apple’s instructions. Once service is complete, the ARS site will return the Covered Equipment to you. Apple will pay for shipping to and from your location if you follow all instructions.

(c) Express Replacement Service (“ERS”) or do-it-yourself (“DIY”) parts service. ERS is available for certain Covered Equipment. ERS is not available for iPod, iPhone Screen Only claims or iPad Connectivity Devices. DIY parts service is available for many Covered Equipment. This allows you to service your own Covered Equipment. If Apple requires return of the replaced device or part, Apple may require a credit card authorization to serve as security for the retail price of the replacement device or part and applicable shipping costs until you return the replaced device as instructed, and if you are not able to provide credit card authorization, service may not be available to you in which case Apple will offer an alternative arrangement for service. If you fail to return the replaced Covered Equipment or part as instructed or return a replaced Covered Equipment or part that is ineligible for service, Apple will charge the credit card for the authorized amount. If Apple does not require return of the replaced product or part, Apple will ship you free of charge a replacement product or part accompanied by any applicable instructions or requirements for disposal of the replaced product or part. In any case, Apple is not responsible for any labor costs you incur in respect to ERS or DIY parts service.

Apple may change the method by which Apple provides repair or replacement service to you, and your Covered Equipment's eligibility to receive a particular method of service.

Service will be limited to the options available in the country where you request service. Service options, parts availability and response times may vary. If service is not available for the Covered Equipment in a country that is not the country of purchase, you may be responsible for shipping and handling charges to facilitate service in a country where service is available. If you seek service in a country that is not the country of purchase, you must comply with all applicable import and export laws and regulations and be responsible for all custom duties, V.A.T. and other associated sales taxes and charges. For international service, Apple may repair or exchange products and parts with comparable products and parts that comply with local standards.

6. Your Responsibilities

To receive service or support under the Plan, you agree to (i) provide your Plan Agreement Number and a copy of your Plan’s original proof of purchase, (ii) provide information about the symptoms and causes of the issues with the Covered Equipment, (iii) respond to requests for information needed to diagnose or service the Covered Equipment, (iv) follow instructions Apple gives you, (v) update software to currently published releases prior to seeking service, and (vi) back up software and data residing on the Covered Equipment.

DURING HARDWARE SERVICE, APPLE WILL DELETE THE CONTENTS OF THE COVERED EQUIPMENT AND REFORMAT THE STORAGE MEDIA. Apple will return your Covered Equipment or provide a replacement as the Covered Equipment was originally configured, subject to applicable updates. Apple may install OS updates as part of hardware service that will prevent the Covered Equipment from reverting to an earlier version of the OS. Third party applications installed on the Covered Equipment may not be compatible or work with the Covered Equipment as a result of the OS update. You will be responsible for reinstalling all other software programs, data and passwords.

7. Limitation of Liability

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, APPLE AND ITS EMPLOYEES AND AGENTS, AND THE INSURER, WILL UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY SUBSEQUENT OWNER OF THE COVERED EQUIPMENT FOR ANY INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE COSTS OF RECOVERING, REPROGRAMMING, OR REPRODUCING ANY PROGRAM OR DATA OR THE FAILURE TO MAINTAIN THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF DATA, ANY LOSS OF BUSINESS, PROFITS, REVENUE OR ANTICIPATED SAVINGS, RESULTING FROM APPLE’S OR THE INSURER’S OBLIGATIONS UNDER THIS PLAN. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE LIMIT OF APPLE AND ITS EMPLOYEES' AND AGENT’S AND THE INSURER’S LIABILITY TO YOU AND ANY SUBSEQUENT OWNER ARISING UNDER THE PLAN SHALL NOT EXCEED THE ORIGINAL PRICE PAID FOR THE PLAN. APPLE SPECIFICALLY DOES NOT WARRANT THAT (i) IT WILL BE ABLE TO REPAIR OR REPLACE THE COVERED EQUIPMENT WITHOUT RISK TO OR LOSS OF PROGRAMS OR DATA, (ii) IT WILL MAINTAIN THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF DATA, OR (iii) THAT THE OPERATION OF THE PRODUCT WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE.

THE BENEFITS CONFERRED BY THIS PLAN ARE IN ADDITION TO ANY RIGHTS AND REMEDIES PROVIDED UNDER CONSUMER LAWS AND REGULATIONS. TO THE EXTENT THAT LIABILITY UNDER SUCH LAWS AND REGULATIONS MAY BE LIMITED, APPLE’S LIABILITY IS LIMITED, AT ITS SOLE OPTION, TO REPLACEMENT OR REPAIR OF THE COVERED EQUIPMENT OR SUPPLY OF THE SERVICE. SOME STATES OR PROVINCES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

How Consumer Rights Affect this Plan

THE BENEFITS CONFERRED BY THIS PLAN ARE IN ADDITION TO ALL RIGHTS AND REMEDIES PROVIDED UNDER CONSUMER PROTECTION LAWS AND REGULATIONS. THIS PLAN SHALL NOT PREJUDICE THE RIGHTS GRANTED BY APPLICABLE CONSUMER LAW, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO RECEIVE REMEDIES UNDER STATUTORY WARRANTY LAW AND TO SEEK DAMAGES IN THE EVENT OF THE NON-PERFORMANCE BY APPLE OF ANY OF ITS CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATIONS.

1. The Plan

This contract (the “Plan”) governs the services provided by Apple under the above plans and includes the terms in this document, your Plan Confirmation ("Plan Confirmation"), and the original sales receipt for your Plan. Your Plan Confirmation will be provided to you at the time of purchase. If you purchased your Plan from Apple, you may obtain a copy of your Plan Confirmation by going to mysupport.apple.com/products.

Benefits under this Plan are additional to your rights under applicable laws, the manufacturer's hardware warranty and any complimentary technical support. The terms of the Plan apply the same whether paid for on a one-time basis (“Single Pay”) or a monthly basis ("Installment Plan") unless otherwise noted.

The Plan covers the following equipment (collectively, the "Covered Equipment"): (i) the Apple-branded iPhone, iPad, iPod, or Apple Watch listed on your Plan Confirmation ("Covered Device"), (ii) the Apple-branded accessories contained inside the original packaging of your Covered Device, and (iii) an AirPort Express, AirPort Extreme Base Station, or AirPort Time Capsule used with an iPad that is a Covered Device and purchased no earlier than two years before the iPad (“iPad Connectivity Device”).

Coverage begins when you purchase the Plan and continues through, unless cancelled, the date specified in your Plan Confirmation (the "Plan Term”). If the Covered Device is an Apple Watch (Edition or Hermès), the Plan Term is three (3) years from the date of purchase of the Covered Device; for all other devices (including all other models of Apple Watch), the Plan Term is two (2) years from the date of purchase of the Covered Device.

You can find the price of the Plan on the original sales receipt.

2. What is Covered?

2.1 Hardware Services for Defects or Consumed Battery ("Hardware Service")

If during the Plan Term, you submit a valid claim by notifying Apple that a defect in materials and workmanship has arisen in the Covered Equipment or, in relation to Covered Equipment which uses an integrated rechargeable battery, where the capacity of the Covered Device's battery to hold an electrical charge is less than eighty percent (80%) of its original specifications, Apple will either: (i) repair the defect at no charge, using new parts or parts that are equivalent to new in performance and reliability, or (ii) 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. If Apple exchanges the Covered Equipment, the original product becomes Apple’s property and the replacement product is your property, with coverage effective for the replacement product for the remainder of the Plan Term.

2.2 Services for Accidental Damage from Handling ("ADH Service")

If, during the Plan Term, you submit a valid claim by notifying Apple that the Covered Device has failed due to accidental damage from handling resulting from an unexpected and unintentional external event (such as, drops and damage caused by liquid contact) (“ADH”), Apple will, subject to your payment of the service fee described below, either (i) repair the defect using new or refurbished parts that are equivalent to new in performance and reliability, or (ii) exchange the Covered Device with a replacement product that is new or equivalent to new in performance and reliability. Each time you receive services for ADH is a “Service Event”. Exclusions apply as described below. Further, services for ADH expire and all of Apple’s obligations to you under this section are discharged and fulfilled in their entirety once Apple has provided to you two (2) Service Events.

Important: Please refer to Section 3 for exclusions on provision of ADH Service.

The following service fees apply to each Service Event:

iPhone:

Screen Only Damage:

A$45/HK$228/SGD$42/MOP$248

For iPhone - Screen Only Damage, the Covered Device must have no additional damage beyond the screen, including, but not limited to, a bent or dented enclosure, that would prevent Apple from replacing the screen on the Covered Device. Covered Devices with additional damage will be charged as iPhone All Other Damage. Screen Only repairs are not available on devices other than iPhones.

Depending on your country or jurisdiction of purchase, the ADH coverage under the Plan may be provided to you as a benefit under an arrangement which Apple has entered into with the relevant insurer named in Section 11 under the country or jurisdiction that you purchased the Plan in (“Insurer”).

2.3 Technical Support

During the Plan Term, Apple will provide you with access to telephone and web-based technical support for Covered Equipment ("Technical Support"). Your Technical Support starts on expiration of the complimentary technical support provided by Apple, which starts on the date you purchase the Covered Equipment. Technical support may include assistance with installation, launch, configuration, troubleshooting, and recovery (excluding data recovery), including storing, retrieving, and managing files; interpreting system error messages; and determining when hardware service is required or ADH coverage may be applicable. Apple will provide support for the then-current version of the supported software, and the prior Major Release. For purposes of this section, the term "Major Release" means a significant version of software that is commercially released by Apple in a release number format such as "1.0" or "2.0" and which is not in beta or pre-release form.

Apple Technical Support is limited to the following: (i) the Covered Equipment, (ii) the Apple-branded Operating System (“OS”) and Apple-branded software applications that are pre-installed on or designed to operate with the Covered Equipment (“Consumer Software”), and (iii) connectivity issues between the Covered Equipment and a laptop or desktop computer that meets the Covered Equipment’s connectivity specifications and runs an operating system supported by the Covered Equipment. Exclusions apply as described below.

3. What is not Covered?

3.1 Hardware Services and ADH Services

Apple may restrict Hardware Service and ADH Services to the country where the Covered Equipment was originally purchased.

Apple will not provide Hardware Services or ADH Services in the following circumstances:

(a) to protect against normal wear and tear, or to repair cosmetic damage not affecting the functionality of the Covered Equipment;

(b) to conduct preventative maintenance;

(c) to replace Covered Equipment that is lost or stolen;

(d) to repair damage caused by reckless, abusive, willful or intentional conduct, or any use of the Covered Equipment in a manner not normal or intended by Apple;

(e) services to install, remove or dispose of the Covered Equipment or the equipment provided to you while the Covered Equipment is being serviced;

(f) to repair damage caused by a product that is not Covered Equipment;

(g) to repair any damage to Covered Equipment (regardless of the cause) if the Covered Equipment has been opened, serviced, modified, or altered by anyone other than Apple or an authorized representative of Apple;

(h) to repair pre-existing conditions of the Covered Equipment if you purchased the Plan after you purchased the Covered Equipment;

(i) to repair any damage to Covered Equipment with a serial number that has been altered, defaced or removed; or

(j) to repair damages caused by fire, earthquake or other external causes.

Installation of third party parts may affect your coverage. As a condition of receiving Hardware or ADH Services, all Covered Equipment must be returned to Apple in its entirety including all original parts or Apple-authorized replacement components. The restriction does not prejudice your consumer law rights.

3.2 Technical Support

Apple will not provide Technical Support in the following circumstances:

(a) For use of the OS and Consumer Software as server-based applications;

(b) For issues that could be resolved by upgrading software to the then-current version;

(c) For third-party products or their effects on or interactions with the Covered Equipment;

(d) For your use of a computer or OS that is not related to Consumer Software or to connectivity issues with the Covered Equipment;

(e) For software other than the Consumer Software;

(f) For any Consumer Software designated as “beta”, “prerelease,” or “preview” or similarly; or

(g) For damage to, or loss of any software or data that was residing or recorded on the Covered Equipment (note: the Plan does not cover the recovery or reinstallation of software programs and user data).

4. How to Obtain Service and Support?

You may obtain service or Technical Support by calling Apple or accessing support.apple.com/country-selector. You must provide the Plan Agreement Number or Covered Device serial number. You must also, upon request, present your Plan Confirmation, and the original sales receipt for your Covered Device and your Plan.

5. Service Options

Apple will provide hardware services to you through one or more of these options:

(a) Carry-in service. Carry-in service is available for most Covered Equipment. Return the Covered Equipment to an Apple-owned retail store location or to a service provider authorized by Apple that offers carry-in service. Service will be performed for you at the store, or the store may send the Covered Equipment to an Apple repair service (“ARS”) site for service. You must promptly retrieve the Covered Equipment.

(b) Mail-in service. Direct mail-in service is available for most Covered Equipment. If Apple determines that your Covered Equipment is eligible for mail-in service, Apple will send you prepaid waybills (and, if needed, packaging material). You must ship the Covered Equipment to an ARS site in accordance with Apple’s instructions. Once service is complete, the ARS site will return the Covered Equipment to you. Apple will pay for shipping to and from your location if you follow all instructions.

(c) Express Replacement Service (“ERS”) or do-it-yourself (“DIY”) parts service. ERS is available for certain Covered Equipment. ERS is not available for iPod, iPhone Screen Only claims or iPad Connectivity Devices. DIY parts service is available for many Covered Equipment. This allows you to service your own Covered Equipment. If Apple requires return of the replaced device or part, Apple may require a credit card authorization to serve as security for the retail price of the replacement device or part and applicable shipping costs until you return the replaced device as instructed, and if you are not able to provide credit card authorization, service may not be available to you in which case Apple will offer an alternative arrangement for service. If you fail to return the replaced Covered Equipment or part as instructed or return a replaced Covered Equipment or part that is ineligible for service, Apple will charge the credit card for the authorized amount. If Apple does not require return of the replaced product or part, Apple will ship you free of charge a replacement product or part accompanied by any applicable instructions or requirements for disposal of the replaced product or part. In any case, Apple is not responsible for any labor costs you incur in respect to ERS or DIY parts service.

Apple may change the method by which Apple provides repair or replacement service to you, and your Covered Equipment's eligibility to receive a particular method of service.

Service will be limited to the options available in the country where you request service. Service options, parts availability and response times may vary. If service is not available for the Covered Equipment in a country that is not the country of purchase, you may be responsible for shipping and handling charges to facilitate service in a country where service is available. If you seek service in a country that is not the country of purchase, you must comply with all applicable import and export laws and regulations and be responsible for all custom duties, V.A.T. and other associated sales taxes and charges. For international service, Apple may repair or exchange products and parts with comparable products and parts that comply with local standards.

6. Your Responsibilities

To receive service or support under the Plan, you agree to (i) provide your Plan Agreement Number and a copy of your Plan’s original proof of purchase, (ii) provide information about the symptoms and causes of the issues with the Covered Equipment, (iii) respond to requests for information needed to diagnose or service the Covered Equipment, (iv) follow instructions Apple gives you, (v) update software to currently published releases prior to seeking service, and (vi) back up software and data residing on the Covered Equipment.

DURING HARDWARE SERVICE, APPLE WILL DELETE THE CONTENTS OF THE COVERED EQUIPMENT AND REFORMAT THE STORAGE MEDIA. Apple will return your Covered Equipment or provide a replacement as the Covered Equipment was originally configured, subject to applicable updates. Apple may install OS updates as part of hardware service that will prevent the Covered Equipment from reverting to an earlier version of the OS. Third party applications installed on the Covered Equipment may not be compatible or work with the Covered Equipment as a result of the OS update. You will be responsible for reinstalling all other software programs, data and passwords.

7. Limitation of Liability

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, APPLE AND ITS EMPLOYEES AND AGENTS, AND THE INSURER, WILL UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY SUBSEQUENT OWNER OF THE COVERED EQUIPMENT FOR ANY INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE COSTS OF RECOVERING, REPROGRAMMING, OR REPRODUCING ANY PROGRAM OR DATA OR THE FAILURE TO MAINTAIN THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF DATA, ANY LOSS OF BUSINESS, PROFITS, REVENUE OR ANTICIPATED SAVINGS, RESULTING FROM APPLE’S OR THE INSURER’S OBLIGATIONS UNDER THIS PLAN. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE LIMIT OF APPLE AND ITS EMPLOYEES' AND AGENT’S AND THE INSURER’S LIABILITY TO YOU AND ANY SUBSEQUENT OWNER ARISING UNDER THE PLAN SHALL NOT EXCEED THE ORIGINAL PRICE PAID FOR THE PLAN. APPLE SPECIFICALLY DOES NOT WARRANT THAT (i) IT WILL BE ABLE TO REPAIR OR REPLACE THE COVERED EQUIPMENT WITHOUT RISK TO OR LOSS OF PROGRAMS OR DATA, (ii) IT WILL MAINTAIN THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF DATA, OR (iii) THAT THE OPERATION OF THE PRODUCT WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE.

THE BENEFITS CONFERRED BY THIS PLAN ARE IN ADDITION TO ANY RIGHTS AND REMEDIES PROVIDED UNDER CONSUMER LAWS AND REGULATIONS. TO THE EXTENT THAT LIABILITY UNDER SUCH LAWS AND REGULATIONS MAY BE LIMITED, APPLE’S LIABILITY IS LIMITED, AT ITS SOLE OPTION, TO REPLACEMENT OR REPAIR OF THE COVERED EQUIPMENT OR SUPPLY OF THE SERVICE. SOME STATES OR PROVINCES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

3. What is Covered?

3.1 Hardware 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 Device’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. If Apple exchanges the Covered Equipment, the original product becomes Apple’s property and the replacement product is your property, with coverage for the remaining period of the Plan.

3.2 Accidental Damage from Handling

If during the Plan Term you submit a valid claim notifying Apple that the Covered Device has failed due to accidental damage from handling (“ADH”), Apple will, subject to the service fee described below, either (i) repair the defect using new or refurbished parts that are equivalent to new in performance and reliability, or (ii) exchange the Covered Device with a replacement product that is new or equivalent to new in performance and reliability (both individually known as a “Service Event”). ADH coverage will expire prior to the end of the Plan Term and all of Apple’s obligations to you under this section 3.2 will be fulfilled in their entirety once Apple, as a result of ADH claims, has provided to you two (2) Service Events. ADH coverage only applies to an operational or mechanical failure caused by an accident from handling that is the result of an unexpected and unintentional external event (e.g. drops and damage caused by liquid contact) that arises from your normal daily usage of the Covered Device as intended for such Covered Device. 

Important: ADH coverage does not include (a) protection against normal wear and tear, theft, misplacement, reckless, abusive, willful or intentional conduct associated with handling and use of the Covered Device, (b) protection against any other act or result not covered by the Plan, as described in Section 4.2 below, or (c) any resultant damage to the Covered Device that arises from one or more conditions described in Section 3.2 (a) or (b). Apple may ask you to provide an explanation of where and when the accident occurred with a detailed description of the actual event. Apple will deny your claim if you fail to pay the service fee or fail to provide information relating to the accident when asked.

  • Under AppleCare+ for iPhone, you will pay a A$45 / HK$228 / SGD$42 / MOP 248 service fee including applicable tax for a Screen-only ADH Claim or a A$149 / HK$ 788 / SGD$ 148/ MOP$848 service fee including applicable tax for All Other ADH Claims.
  • Under AppleCare+ for iPad, you will pay a A$65 / HK$348 / SGD$68 / MOP$388 service fee including applicable tax for each ADH claim.
  • Under AppleCare+ for iPod, you will pay a A$45 / HK$228 / SGD$48 / MOP$248 service fee including applicable tax for each ADH claim.
  • Under AppleCare+ for Apple Watch, you will pay a A$99/ HK$548 / SGD$98 / MOP$588 service fee including applicable tax for each ADH claim.

 

For iPhone Screen-only ADH Claims, the Covered Device must have no additional damage beyond the screen damage, including, but not limited to, bent or dented enclosure, that would prevent Apple from replacing the screen on the Covered Device. Covered Device with additional damage will becategorized as iPhone All Other ADH Claims. This Accidental Damage claim categorization is only relevant for the iPhone.

 

Depending on your country or jurisdiction of purchase, the ADH coverage under the Plan may be provided to you as a benefit under an arrangement which Apple has entered into with the relevant insurer named in Section 13 under the country or jurisdiction that you purchased the Plan in (“Insurer”).

3.3 Technical Support

During the Plan Term, Apple will provide you with access to telephone and web-based technical support resources. Your Technical Support coverage starts on expiration of the complimentary technical support cover provided by the manufacturer, which starts on the date you purchase the Covered Equipment. Technical support may include assistance with installation, launch, configuration, troubleshooting, and recovery (except for data recovery), including storing, retrieving, and managing files; interpreting system error messages; and determining when hardware service is required or ADH coverage may be applicable. Apple will provide support for the then-current version of the supported software, and the prior Major Release. For purposes of this section, the term "Major Release" means a significant version of software that is commercially released by Apple in a release number format such as "1.0" or "2.0" and which is not in beta or pre-release form.

(i) Covered Equipment,

(ii) Operating system (“OS”) and software applications that are pre-installed with the Covered Equipment (“Consumer Software”),

5. How to Obtain Service and Support?

You may obtain hardware services, which include those relating to ADH coverage and technical support. To obtain such services or support, please access the Apple website (www.apple.com/support/country/) or call us (local telephone numbers available at www.apple.com/contact/phone_contacts.html). If you call, you will need to give the Apple technical support representative who answers your call the Plan Agreement Number or Covered Equipment serial number before you can receive assistance. You need to keep your Plan Confirmation document and the original sales receipt for your Covered Equipment and your Plan, as it will be required if there is any question as to your Covered Equipment’s eligibility for coverage.

6. Service Options

6.1 Apple will provide hardware services to you through one or more of these options:

(i) Carry-in service. Carry-in service is available for most Covered Equipment. Return the Covered Equipment to an Apple-owned retail store location or to an AASP that offers carry-in service. Service will be performed for you at the store, or the store may send the Covered Equipment to an Apple repair service (“ARS”) site for service. Once you are notified that service is complete, you will promptly retrieve the Covered Equipment.

(ii) Mail-in service. Direct mail-in service is available for most Covered Equipment. If Apple determines that your Covered Equipment is eligible for mail-in service, Apple will send you prepaid waybills (and if you no longer have the original packaging, packaging material) and you will ship the Covered Equipment to an ARS site in accordance with Apple’s instructions. Once service is complete, the ARS site will return the Covered Equipment to you. Apple will pay for shipping to and from your location if you follow all instructions.

(iii) Express Replacement Service (“ERS”) or do-it-yourself (“DIY”) parts service. ERS is available for certain Covered Equipment. ERS is not available for iPhone Screen-only ADH Claims. DIY parts service is available for many Covered Equipment parts or accessories, and this will allow you to service your own Covered Equipment. If ERS or DIY parts service is available in the circumstances, the following process will apply.

(a) Service where Apple requires return of the replaced Covered Equipment or part. Apple may require a credit card authorization to serve as security for the retail price of the replacement Covered Equipment or part and applicable shipping costs. If you are not able to provide credit card authorization, service may not be available to you and Apple will offer an alternative arrangement for service. Apple will ship replacement Equipment or a part to you with installation instructions, if such are applicable, and any requirements for the return of the replaced Covered Equipment or part. If you follow the instructions, Apple will cancel the credit card authorization, so you will not be charged for the Covered Equipment or part and shipping to and from your location. If you fail to return the replaced Covered Equipment or part as instructed or return a replaced Covered Equipment or part that is ineligible for service, Apple will charge the credit card for the authorized amount.

(b) Service where Apple does not require return of the replaced product or part. Apple will ship you free of charge a replacement product or part accompanied by instructions on installation, if applicable, and any requirements for the disposal of the replaced product or part.

(c) Apple is not responsible for any labor costs you incur in respect to ERS or DIY parts service. Should you require further assistance, you should contact Apple at the telephone number available at www.apple.com/contact/phone_contacts.html.

6.2 Apple reserves the right to change the method by which Apple may provide repair or replacement service to you, and your Covered Equipment’s eligibility to receive a particular method of service. Service will be limited to the options available in the country where you request service. Service options, parts availability and response times may vary according to country. If service is not available for the Covered Equipment in a country that is not the country of purchase, you may be responsible for shipping and handling charges to facilitate service to a country where service is available. If you seek service in a country that is not the country of purchase, you will comply with all applicable import and export laws and regulations and be responsible for all custom duties, V.A.T. and other associated taxes and charges. For international service, Apple may repair or exchange products and parts with comparable products and parts that comply with local standards.

Apple may install OS updates as part of hardware service that will prevent the Covered Equipment from reverting to an earlier version of the OS. Third party applications installed on the Covered Equipment may not be compatible or work with the Covered Equipment as a result of the OS update. You will be responsible for reinstalling all other software programs, data and passwords.

(vii) You make all payments as set forth in Section 8 - Payments.

8. Payments

You are responsible to pay all amounts due under this Plan including taxes and other government fees.

FOR CONSUMERS IN JURISDICTIONS WHO HAVE THE BENEFIT OF CONSUMER PROTECTION LAWS OR REGULATIONS, THE BENEFITS CONFERRED BY THIS PLAN ARE IN ADDITION TO ALL RIGHTS AND REMEDIES PROVIDED UNDER SUCH LAWS AND REGULATIONS. TO THE EXTENT THAT LIABILITY UNDER SUCH LAWS AND REGULATIONS MAY BE LIMITED, APPLE’S LIABILITY IS LIMITED, AT ITS SOLE OPTION, TO REPLACE OR REPAIR OF THE COVERED EQUIPMENT OR SUPPLY OF THE SERVICE. SOME STATES OR PROVINCES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

5.          How to Obtain Service and Support?
 
You may obtain hardware services, which include those relating to ADH coverage and technical support. To obtain such services or support, please access the Apple website (www.apple.com/support/country/) or call the telephone number listed below. If you call, you will need to give the Apple technical support representative who answers your call the Plan Agreement Number or Covered Equipment serial number before you can receive assistance. You need to keep your Plan Confirmation document and the original sales receipt for your Covered Equipment and your Plan, as it will be required if there is any question as to your Covered Equipment’s eligibility for coverage.
 
6.          Service Options.
 
6.1        Apple will provide hardware services to you through one or more of these options:
 
(i) Carry-in service. Carry-in service is available for most Covered Equipment. Return the Covered Equipment to an Apple-owned retail store location or to an AASP that offers carry-in service. Service will be performed for you at the store, or the store may send the Covered Equipment to an Apple repair service (“ARS”) site for service. Once you are notified that service is complete, you will promptly retrieve the Covered Equipment.
 
(ii) Mail-in service. Direct mail-in service is available for most Covered Equipment. If Apple determines that your Covered Equipment is eligible for mail-in service, Apple will send you prepaid way bills (and if you no longer have the original packaging, packaging material) and you will ship the Covered Equipment to an ARS site in accordance with Apple’s instructions. Once service is complete, the ARS site will return the Covered Equipment to you. Apple will pay for shipping to and from your location if you follow all instructions.
 
(iii) Express Replacement Service (“ERS”) or do-it-yourself (“DIY”) parts service. ERS is available for certain Covered Equipment. DIY parts service is available for many Covered Equipment parts or accessories, and this will allow you to service your own Covered Equipment. If ERS or DIY parts service is available in the circumstances, the following process will apply.
 
(a) Service where Apple requires return of the replaced Covered Equipment or part. Apple may require a credit card authorization to serve as security for the retail price of the replacement Covered Equipment or part and applicable shipping costs. If you are not able to provide credit card authorization, service may not be available to you and Apple will offer an alternative arrangement for service. Apple will ship replacement Equipment or a part to you with installation instructions, if such are applicable, and any requirements for the return of the replaced Covered Equipment or part. If you follow the instructions, Apple will cancel the credit card authorization, so you will not be charged for the Covered Equipment or part and shipping to and from your location. If you fail to return the replaced Covered Equipment or part as instructed or return a replaced Covered Equipment or part that is ineligible for service, Apple will charge the credit card for the authorized amount.
 
(b) Service where Apple does not require return of the replaced product or part. Apple will ship you free of charge a replacement product or part accompanied by instructions on installation, if applicable, and any requirements for the disposal of the replaced product or part.
 
(c) Apple is not responsible for any labor costs you incur in respect to ERS or DIY parts service. Should you require further assistance, you should contact Apple at the telephone number listed below.
 
6.2        Apple reserves the right to change the method by which Apple may provide repair or replacement service to you, and your Covered Equipment’s eligibility to receive a particular method of service. Service will be limited to the options available in the country where you request service. Service options, parts availability and response times may vary according to country. If service is not available for the Covered Equipment in a country that is not the country of purchase, you may be responsible for shipping and handling charges to facilitate service to a country where service is available. If you seek service in a country that is not the country of purchase, you will comply with all applicable import and export laws and regulations and be responsible for all custom duties, V.A.T. and other associated taxes and charges. For international service, Apple may repair or exchange products and parts with comparable products and parts that comply with local standards.
 
7.          Your Responsibilities
 
To receive service or support under the Plan, you agree to comply with each of the terms listed below.
 
(i) You will provide your Plan Agreement Number and a copy of your Plan’s original proof of purchase, if requested.

(iv) You will follow instructions Apple gives you, including but not limited to refraining from sending Apple products and accessories that are not subject to repair or replacement service and packing the Covered Equipment in accordance with shipping instructions.
 
(v) You will update software to currently published releases prior to seeking service.
 
(vi) You will make sure to back up software and data residing on the Covered Equipment. DURING HARDWARE SERVICE, APPLE WILL DELETE THE CONTENTS OF THE COVERED EQUIPMENT AND REFORMAT THE STORAGE MEDIA. Apple will return your Covered Equipment or provide a replacement as the Covered Equipment was originally configured, subject to applicable updates. Apple may install OS updates as part of hardware service that will prevent the Covered Equipment from reverting to an earlier version of the OS. Third party applications installed on the Covered Equipment may not be compatible or work with the Covered Equipment as a result of the OS update. You will be responsible for reinstalling all other software programs, data and passwords.
 
8.          Limitation of Liability
 
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, APPLE AND ITS EMPLOYEES AND AGENTS AND THE INSURER WILL UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY SUBSEQUENT OWNER OF THE COVERED EQUIPMENT FOR ANY INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO COSTS OF RECOVERING, REPROGRAMMING, OR REPRODUCING ANY PROGRAM OR DATA OR THE FAILURE TO MAINTAIN THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF DATA, ANY LOSS OF BUSINESS, PROFITS, REVENUE OR ANTICIPATED SAVINGS, RESULTING FROM APPLE’S OR THE INSURER’S OBLIGATIONS UNDER THIS PLAN. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE LIMIT OF APPLE AND ITS EMPLOYEES AND AGENT’S AND THE INSURER’S LIABILITY TO YOU AND ANY SUBSEQUENT OWNER ARISING UNDER THE PLAN SHALL NOT EXCEED THE ORIGINAL PRICE PAID FOR THE PLAN.

THE BENEFITS CONFERRED BY THIS PLAN ARE IN ADDITION TO ALL RIGHTS AND REMEDIES PROVIDED UNDER CONSUMER PROTECTION LAWS AND REGULATIONS. THIS PLAN SHALL NOT PREJUDICE THE RIGHTS GRANTED BY APPLICABLE CONSUMER LAW, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO RECEIVE REMEDIES UNDER STATUTORY WARRANTY LAW AND TO SEEK DAMAGES IN THE EVENT OF THE NON-PERFORMANCE BY APPLE OF ANY OF ITS CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATIONS.
 
1.          The Plan
 
This service contract governs the hardware service and technical support provided to you by Apple under the above-mentioned plans (each referred to herein as the “Plan”) for an Apple-branded iPhone, iPad, iPod, Apple Watch or Apple Watch Sport and the Apple-branded accessories contained in its original packaging (“Covered Device”) listed on your proof of coverage document (“Plan Confirmation”). Apple will also provide hardware service and technical support coverage for an AirPort Express or an AirPort Extreme Base Station and an AirPort Time Capsule (“AirPort Device”) if the AirPort Device is used with an iPad covered under the AppleCare+ for iPad and purchased no earlier than two years before the covered iPad. (For purposes of this service contract, the Covered Device and, if applicable, the AirPort Device is known collectively as the “Covered Equipment”).
 
Please note that there are no benefits under this Plan for Apple Watch Edition.
 
2.          When Coverage Begins and Ends
 
Coverage begins when you purchase the Plan. Coverage ends twenty-four (24) months from the date of retail purchase of your original Covered Device (“Plan Term”).

The terms of this Plan, the original sales receipt for your Plan and the Plan Confirmation are each part of your service contract. To obtain a copy of your Plan Confirmation, follow the instructions and enter your Covered Device’s serial number at www.apple.com/support/applecare/view.

Important: ADH coverage does not include (a) protection against normal wear and tear, theft, misplacement, reckless, abusive, willful or intentional conduct associated with handling and use of the Covered Device, (b) protection against any other act or result not covered by the Plan, as described in Section 4.2below, or (c) any resultant damage to the Covered Device that arises from one or more conditions described in Section 3.2(a) or (b).  Apple may ask you to provide an explanation of where and when the accident occurred with a detailed description of the actual event. Apple will deny your claim if you fail to pay the service fee or fail to provide information relating to the accident when asked.

5.          How to Obtain Service and Support?
 
You may obtain hardware services, which include those relating to ADH coverage and technical support. To obtain such services or support, please access the Apple website (www.apple.com/support/country/) or call the telephone number listed below. If you call, you will need to give the Apple technical support representative who answers your call the Plan Agreement Number or Covered Equipment serial number before you can receive assistance. You need to keep your Plan Confirmation document and the original sales receipt for your Covered Equipment and your Plan, as it will be required if there is any question as to your Covered Equipment’s eligibility for coverage.
 
6.          Service Options.
 
6.1        Apple will provide hardware services to you through one or more of these options:
 
(i) Carry-in service. Carry-in service is available for most Covered Equipment. Return the Covered Equipment to an Apple-owned retail store location or to an AASP that offers carry-in service. Service will be performed for you at the store, or the store may send the Covered Equipment to an Apple repair service (“ARS”) site for service. Once you are notified that service is complete, you will promptly retrieve the Covered Equipment.
 
(ii) Mail-in service. Direct mail-in service is available for most Covered Equipment. If Apple determines that your Covered Equipment is eligible for mail-in service, Apple will send you prepaid way bills (and if you no longer have the original packaging, packaging material) and you will ship the Covered Equipment to an ARS site in accordance with Apple’s instructions. Once service is complete, the ARS site will return the Covered Equipment to you. Apple will pay for shipping to and from your location if you follow all instructions.
 
(iii) Express Replacement Service (“ERS”) or do-it-yourself (“DIY”) parts service. ERS is available for certain Covered Equipment. DIY parts service is available for many Covered Equipment parts or accessories, and this will allow you to service your own Covered Equipment. If ERS or DIY parts service is available in the circumstances, the following process will apply.
 
(a) Service where Apple requires return of the replaced Covered Equipment or part. Apple may require a credit card authorization to serve as security for the retail price of the replacement Covered Equipment or part and applicable shipping costs. If you are not able to provide credit card authorization, service may not be available to you and Apple will offer an alternative arrangement for service. Apple will ship replacement Equipment or a part to you with installation instructions, if such are applicable, and any requirements for the return of the replaced Covered Equipment or part. If you follow the instructions, Apple will cancel the credit card authorization, so you will not be charged for the Covered Equipment or part and shipping to and from your location. If you fail to return the replaced Covered Equipment or part as instructed or return a replaced Covered Equipment or part that is ineligible for service, Apple will charge the credit card for the authorized amount.
 
(b) Service where Apple does not require return of the replaced product or part. Apple will ship you free of charge a replacement product or part accompanied by instructions on installation, if applicable, and any requirements for the disposal of the replaced product or part.
 
(c) Apple is not responsible for any labor costs you incur in respect to ERS or DIY parts service. Should you require further assistance, you should contact Apple at the telephone number listed below.
 
6.2        Apple reserves the right to change the method by which Apple may provide repair or replacement service to you, and your Covered Equipment’s eligibility to receive a particular method of service. Service will be limited to the options available in the country where you request service. Service options, parts availability and response times may vary according to country. If service is not available for the Covered Equipment in a country that is not the country of purchase, you may be responsible for shipping and handling charges to facilitate service to a country where service is available. If you seek service in a country that is not the country of purchase, you will comply with all applicable import and export laws and regulations and be responsible for all custom duties, V.A.T. and other associated taxes and charges. For international service, Apple may repair or exchange products and parts with comparable products and parts that comply with local standards.
 
7.          Your Responsibilities
 
To receive service or support under the Plan, you agree to comply with each of the terms listed below.
 
(i) You will provide your Plan Agreement Number and a copy of your Plan’s original proof of purchase, if requested.

(iv) You will follow instructions Apple gives you, including but not limited to refraining from sending Apple products and accessories that are not subject to repair or replacement service and packing the Covered Equipment in accordance with shipping instructions.
 
(v) You will update software to currently published releases prior to seeking service.
 
(vi) You will make sure to back up software and data residing on the Covered Equipment. DURING HARDWARE SERVICE, APPLE WILL DELETE THE CONTENTS OF THE COVERED EQUIPMENT AND REFORMAT THE STORAGE MEDIA. Apple will return your Covered Equipment or provide a replacement as the Covered Equipment was originally configured, subject to applicable updates. Apple may install OS updates as part of hardware service that will prevent the Covered Equipment from reverting to an earlier version of the OS. Third party applications installed on the Covered Equipment may not be compatible or work with the Covered Equipment as a result of the OS update. You will be responsible for reinstalling all other software programs, data and passwords.
 
8.          Limitation of Liability
 
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, APPLE AND ITS EMPLOYEES AND AGENTS AND THE INSURER WILL UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY SUBSEQUENT OWNER OF THE COVERED EQUIPMENT FOR ANY INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO COSTS OF RECOVERING, REPROGRAMMING, OR REPRODUCING ANY PROGRAM OR DATA OR THE FAILURE TO MAINTAIN THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF DATA, ANY LOSS OF BUSINESS, PROFITS, REVENUE OR ANTICIPATED SAVINGS, RESULTING FROM APPLE’S OR THE INSURER’S OBLIGATIONS UNDER THIS PLAN. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE LIMIT OF APPLE AND ITS EMPLOYEES AND AGENT’S AND THE INSURER’S LIABILITY TO YOU AND ANY SUBSEQUENT OWNER ARISING UNDER THE PLAN SHALL NOT EXCEED THE ORIGINAL PRICE PAID FOR THE PLAN.

ADH coverage will expire prior to the end of the Plan Term and all of Apple’s obligations to you under this section 3.2will be fulfilled in their entirety once Apple, as a result of ADH claims, has provided to you two (2) Service Events. ADH coverage only applies to an operational or mechanical failure caused by an accident from handling that is the result of an unexpected and unintentional external event (e.g. drops and damage caused by liquid contact other than as a result of defect in material and workmanship) that arises from your normal daily usage of the Covered Device as intended for such Covered Device.
 
Important: ADH coverage does not include (a) protection against normal wear and tear, theft, misplacement, reckless, abusive, willful or intentional conduct associated with handling and use of the Covered Device, (b) protection against any other act or result not covered by the Plan, as described in Section 4.2below, or (c) any resultant damage to the Covered Device that arises from one or more conditions described in Section 3.2(a) or (b).  Apple may ask you to provide an explanation of where and when the accident occurred with a detailed description of the actual event. Apple will deny your claim if you fail to pay the service fee or fail to provide information relating to the accident when asked.

5.          How to Obtain Service and Support?
 
You may obtain hardware services, which include those relating to ADH coverage and technical support. To obtain such services or support, please access the Apple website (www.apple.com/support/country/) or call the telephone number listed below. If you call, you will need to give the Apple technical support representative who answers your call the Plan Agreement Number or Covered Equipment serial number before you can receive assistance. You need to keep your Plan Confirmation document and the original sales receipt for your Covered Equipment and your Plan, as it will be required if there is any question as to your Covered Equipment’s eligibility for coverage.
 
6.          Service Options.
 
6.1        Apple will provide hardware services to you through one or more of these options:
 
(i) Carry-in service. Carry-in service is available for most Covered Equipment. Return the Covered Equipment to an Apple-owned retail store location or to an AASP that offers carry-in service. Service will be performed for you at the store, or the store may send the Covered Equipment to an Apple repair service (“ARS”) site for service. Once you are notified that service is complete, you will promptly retrieve the Covered Equipment.
 
(ii) Mail-in service. Direct mail-in service is available for most Covered Equipment. If Apple determines that your Covered Equipment is eligible for mail-in service, Apple will send you prepaid way bills (and if you no longer have the original packaging, packaging material) and you will ship the Covered Equipment to an ARS site in accordance with Apple’s instructions. Once service is complete, the ARS site will return the Covered Equipment to you. Apple will pay for shipping to and from your location if you follow all instructions.
 
(iii) Express Replacement Service (“ERS”) or do-it-yourself (“DIY”) parts service. ERS is available for certain Covered Equipment. DIY parts service is available for many Covered Equipment parts or accessories, and this will allow you to service your own Covered Equipment. If ERS or DIY parts service is available in the circumstances, the following process will apply.
 
(a) Service where Apple requires return of the replaced Covered Equipment or part. Apple may require a credit card authorization to serve as security for the retail price of the replacement Covered Equipment or part and applicable shipping costs. If you are not able to provide credit card authorization, service may not be available to you and Apple will offer an alternative arrangement for service. Apple will ship replacement Equipment or a part to you with installation instructions, if such are applicable, and any requirements for the return of the replaced Covered Equipment or part. If you follow the instructions, Apple will cancel the credit card authorization, so you will not be charged for the Covered Equipment or part and shipping to and from your location. If you fail to return the replaced Covered Equipment or part as instructed or return a replaced Covered Equipment or part that is ineligible for service, Apple will charge the credit card for the authorized amount.
 
(b) Service where Apple does not require return of the replaced product or part. Apple will ship you free of charge a replacement product or part accompanied by instructions on installation, if applicable, and any requirements for the disposal of the replaced product or part.
 
(c) Apple is not responsible for any labor costs you incur in respect to ERS or DIY parts service. Should you require further assistance, you should contact Apple at the telephone number listed below.
 
6.2        Apple reserves the right to change the method by which Apple may provide repair or replacement service to you, and your Covered Equipment’s eligibility to receive a particular method of service. Service will be limited to the options available in the country where you request service. Service options, parts availability and response times may vary according to country. If service is not available for the Covered Equipment in a country that is not the country of purchase, you may be responsible for shipping and handling charges to facilitate service to a country where service is available. If you seek service in a country that is not the country of purchase, you will comply with all applicable import and export laws and regulations and be responsible for all custom duties, V.A.T. and other associated taxes and charges. For international service, Apple may repair or exchange products and parts with comparable products and parts that comply with local standards.
 
7.          Your Responsibilities
 
To receive service or support under the Plan, you agree to comply with each of the terms listed below.
 
(i) You will provide your Plan Agreement Number and a copy of your Plan’s original proof of purchase, if requested.

(iii) You will respond to requests for information, including but not limited to the Covered Equipment serial number, model, version of the operating system and software installed, any peripherals devices connected or installed on the Covered Equipment, any error messages displayed, the actions which were taken before the Covered Equipment experienced the issue and the steps taken to resolve the issue.
 
(iv) You will follow instructions Apple gives you, including but not limited to refraining from sending Apple products and accessories that are not subject to repair or replacement service and packing the Covered Equipment in accordance with shipping instructions.
 
(v) You will update software to currently published releases prior to seeking service.
 
(vi) You will make sure to back up software and data residing on the Covered Equipment. DURING HARDWARE SERVICE, APPLE WILL DELETE THE CONTENTS OF THE COVERED EQUIPMENT AND REFORMAT THE STORAGE MEDIA. Apple will return your Covered Equipment or provide a replacement as the Covered Equipment was originally configured, subject to applicable updates. Apple may install OS updates as part of hardware service that will prevent the Covered Equipment from reverting to an earlier version of the OS. Third party applications installed on the Covered Equipment may not be compatible or work with the Covered Equipment as a result of the OS update. You will be responsible for reinstalling all other software programs, data and passwords.
 
8.          Limitation of Liability
 
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, APPLE AND ITS EMPLOYEES AND AGENTS AND THE INSURER WILL UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY SUBSEQUENT OWNER OF THE COVERED EQUIPMENT FOR ANY INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO COSTS OF RECOVERING, REPROGRAMMING, OR REPRODUCING ANY PROGRAM OR DATA OR THE FAILURE TO MAINTAIN THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF DATA, ANY LOSS OF BUSINESS, PROFITS, REVENUE OR ANTICIPATED SAVINGS, RESULTING FROM APPLE’S OR THE INSURER’S OBLIGATIONS UNDER THIS PLAN. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE LIMIT OF APPLE AND ITS EMPLOYEES AND AGENT’S AND THE INSURER’S LIABILITY TO YOU AND ANY SUBSEQUENT OWNER ARISING UNDER THE PLAN SHALL NOT EXCEED THE ORIGINAL PRICE PAID FOR THE PLAN.

How Consumer Rights Affect this Plan
 
THE BENEFITS CONFERRED BY THIS PLAN ARE IN ADDITION TO ALL RIGHTS AND REMEDIES PROVIDED UNDER CONSUMER PROTECTION LAWS AND REGULATIONS. THIS PLAN SHALL NOT PREJUDICE THE RIGHTS GRANTED BY APPLICABLE CONSUMER LAW, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO RECEIVE REMEDIES UNDER STATUTORY WARRANTY LAW AND TO SEEK DAMAGES IN THE EVENT OF THE NON-PERFORMANCE BY APPLE OF ANY OF ITS CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATIONS.
 
1.          The Plan
 
This service contract governs the hardware service and technical support provided to you by Apple under the above-mentioned plans (each referred to herein as the “Plan”) for an Apple-branded iPhone, iPad or iPod and the accessories contained in its original packaging (“Covered Device”) listed on your proof of coverage document (“Plan Confirmation”). Apple will also provide hardware service and technical support coverage for an AirPort Express or an AirPort Extreme Base Station and an AirPort Time Capsule (“AirPort Device”) if the AirPort Device is used with an iPad covered under the AppleCare+ for iPad and purchased no earlier than two years before the covered iPad. (For purposes of this service contract, the Covered Device and, if applicable, the AirPort Device is known collectively as the “Covered Equipment”).
 
2.          When Coverage Begins and Ends
 
Coverage begins when you purchase the Plan. Coverage ends twenty-four (24) months from the date of retail purchase of your original Covered Device (“Plan Term”). Your Plan Confirmation will be provided to you at or about the time of purchase or sent to you automatically thereafter. The terms of this Plan, the original sales receipt for your Plan and the Plan Confirmation are each part of your service contract. To obtain a copy of your Plan Confirmation, follow the instructions and enter your Covered Device’s serial number at www.apple.com/support/applecare/view.

Coverage under this Plan is additional to the coverage provided under applicable mandatory laws, the manufacturer’s hardware warranty and complimentary technical support.

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 Device’s battery to hold an electrical charge has depleted fifty (50%) percent or more from 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.

5.          How to Obtain Service and Support?
 
You may obtain hardware services, which include those relating to ADH coverage and technical support. To obtain such services or support, please access the Apple website (www.apple.com/support/country/) or call the telephone number listed below. If you call, you will need to give the Apple technical support representative who answers your call the Plan Agreement Number or Covered Equipment serial number before you can receive assistance. You need to keep your Plan Confirmation document and the original sales receipt for your Covered Equipment and your Plan, as it will be required if there is any question as to your Covered Equipment’s eligibility for coverage.
 
6.          Service Options.
 
6.1        Apple will provide hardware services to you through one or more of these options:
 
(i) Carry-in service. Carry-in service is available for most Covered Equipment. Return the Covered Equipment to an Apple-owned retail store location or to an AASP that offers carry-in service. Service will be performed for you at the store, or the store may send the Covered Equipment to an Apple repair service (“ARS”) site for service. Once you are notified that service is complete, you will promptly retrieve the Covered Equipment.
 
(ii) Mail-in service. Direct mail-in service is available for most Covered Equipment. If Apple determines that your Covered Equipment is eligible for mail-in service, Apple will send you prepaid way bills (and if you no longer have the original packaging, packaging material) and you will ship the Covered Equipment to an ARS site in accordance with Apple’s instructions. Once service is complete, the ARS site will return the Covered Equipment to you. Apple will pay for shipping to and from your location if you follow all instructions.
 
(iii) Express Replacement Service (“ERS”) or do-it-yourself (“DIY”) parts service. ERS is available for certain Covered Equipment. DIY parts service is available for many Covered Equipment parts or accessories, and this will allow you to service your own Covered Equipment. If ERS or DIY parts service is available in the circumstances, the following process will apply.
 
(a) Service where Apple requires return of the replaced Covered Equipment or part. Apple may require a credit card authorization to serve as security for the retail price of the replacement Covered Equipment or part and applicable shipping costs. If you are not able to provide credit card authorization, service may not be available to you and Apple will offer an alternative arrangement for service. Apple will ship replacement Equipment or a part to you with installation instructions, if such are applicable, and any requirements for the return of the replaced Covered Equipment or part. If you follow the instructions, Apple will cancel the credit card authorization, so you will not be charged for the Covered Equipment or part and shipping to and from your location. If you fail to return the replaced Covered Equipment or part as instructed or return a replaced Covered Equipment or part that is ineligible for service, Apple will charge the credit card for the authorized amount.
 
(b) Service where Apple does not require return of the replaced product or part. Apple will ship you free of charge a replacement product or part accompanied by instructions on installation, if applicable, and any requirements for the disposal of the replaced product or part.
 
(c) Apple is not responsible for any labor costs you incur in respect to ERS or DIY parts service. Should you require further assistance, you should contact Apple at the telephone number listed below.
 
6.2        Apple reserves the right to change the method by which Apple may provide repair or replacement service to you, and your Covered Equipment’s eligibility to receive a particular method of service. Service will be limited to the options available in the country where you request service. Service options, parts availability and response times may vary according to country. If service is not available for the Covered Equipment in a country that is not the country of purchase, you may be responsible for shipping and handling charges to facilitate service to a country where service is available. If you seek service in a country that is not the country of purchase, you will comply with all applicable import and export laws and regulations and be responsible for all custom duties, V.A.T. and other associated taxes and charges. For international service, Apple may repair or exchange products and parts with comparable products and parts that comply with local standards.
 
7.          Your Responsibilities
 
To receive service or support under the Plan, you agree to comply with each of the terms listed below.

(iv) You will follow instructions Apple gives you, including but not limited to refraining from sending Apple products and accessories that are not subject to repair or replacement service and packing the Covered Equipment in accordance with shipping instructions.
 
(v) You will update software to currently published releases prior to seeking service.
 
(vi) You will make sure to back up software and data residing on the Covered Equipment. DURING HARDWARE SERVICE, APPLE WILL DELETE THE CONTENTS OF THE COVERED EQUIPMENT AND REFORMAT THE STORAGE MEDIA.

Apple may install OS updates as part of hardware service that will prevent the Covered Equipment from reverting to an earlier version of the OS. Third party applications installed on the Covered Equipment may not be compatible or work with the Covered Equipment as a result of the OS update. You will be responsible for reinstalling all other software programs, data and passwords.
