AppleCare+ now available in UK, Italy and France - service fees raised $30 in US

Following the launch of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, Apple has rolled out its AppleCare+ warranty to customers in the UK, Italy and France - after first launching in the US with the iPhone 5. 

AppleCare+ is an extension of AppleCare. Since AppleCare does not provide protection against spills, drops and other sorts of accidental damage, AppleCare+ does, at an added price. Customers can have their devices fixed for an additional service fee per incident, at up to two incidents per plan holder.

In the UK, customers who want AppleCare+ will have to sign-up their iPhone or iPad within 30 days of purchase at £79.00. When accidental damage occurs and a customer wants to have their device fixed, they will be require to pay a £39 service fee. 

Witthe launch of AppleCare+ in Europe, the warranty saw a price hike in the US. Service fees attached to AppleCare+ have increased by $30 to $79, still covering two accidental damage occurrences.

Additionally, AppleCare+ will cover the iPod touch and iPod Classic for the first time. The plans run at $59 with an incident fee of $29.
