Apple announced a plethora of new features and items to its product line yesterday, Oct. 4, at its keynote event Let's Talk iPhone.
One notable change comes to the AppleCare+ package.
For a fee of $99.99 (formerly $69.99), AppleCare+ will now include accidental damage due to handling, as reported by TechCrunch.
That's right folks -- for those woeful souls with butterfingers, Apple's got you covered.
Customers only have two strikes with this new plan, however.
Each of the two times an iPhone is dropped -- be it the iPhone4S or an older model -- it will cost an additional $49.
Of course this is a meager fee compared to replacing the screen or getting a new phone altogether.
For many people, this new tweak to the AppleCare coverage is a godsend. Dropping a phone in water, cracking the screen on the pavement, and similar accidents are common problems.
With the new AppleCare+, iPhone users now have at least two tries to get their digits a little more dexterous.
The AppleCare protection plan is a one-year limited warranty and up to 90 days of complimentary telephone technical support that comes with all Apple hardware.
