FAQs 

How do I extend my Apple warranty coverage?

Purchasing AppleCare+ will allow you to extend your Apple warranty. In addition, you receive upgraded technical assistance, hardware protection, and accidental damage insurance.

Is my Apple warranty still valid if I’ve had repairs done by a third party?

Unfortunately, repairs made by a third party void your Apple product’s warranty. Your warranty can no longer be in effect if you get your device repaired by an unlicensed repair facility.

That’s it!

If the above-described procedure is too complicated for you, you may contact Apple Support and present them with your device’s Serial Number to inquire about the warranty status. Keeping track of your device’s warranty status is vital and straightforward.
