A lot of people have been joining the Apple bandwagon. Yes, Apple-branded gadgets are getting more popular by the minute. Ever since I bought my first Apple-branded product (iBook), I became a super Apple fanatic. Apple just kept innovating products that make us want & need them. My iPhone, iPod and Macbook Pro are things that I use every single day.
One downside for me is the price of those gadgets. Boy, they are surely expensive! Most of my earnings over the recent years were used to buy gadgets and its available accessories. I never regretted buying them as they made my life easier.
All Apple-branded gadgets has a one-year limited warranty. I made it a point to always avail an AppleCare Protection Plan for my Apple laptops so I can get 3 years limited warranty.
As you all know, the AppleCare Protection Plan doesn’t cover everything. It has limitations. Among them is:
(ii) Damage to the Covered Equipment caused by accident, abuse, neglect, misuse (including faulty installation, repair, or maintenance by anyone other than Apple or an Apple Authorized Service Provider), unauthorized modification, extreme environment (including extreme temperature or humidity), extreme physical or electrical stress or interference, fluctuation or surges of electrical power, lightning, static electricity, fire, acts of God or other external causes;
Well, good news! You don’t have to worry anymore if you accidentally drop your Apple gadget or if some bad person steals your precious Apple-branded product. Because Protect + is now here to cover that.
