9to5Mac has reported that Apple has extended the purchase period of AppleCare+ to 60 days.
Originally, if you purchased a new iPhone or iPad you had 30 days to decide if you wanted to go ahead and purchase the extended warranty service or not. Now you will have 60 days to make that decision, which will give you enough time to decide if you would like to spend the $99 for their service. All regions are supported except for Japan, so if you live in Japan you still only have 30 days.
Apple is also discontinuing the standard Apple Care plan. That plan is cheaper, but offers fewer options for extended warranty, like the lack of accidental damage coverage. This change will only apply in Japan, Canada, and the U.S., other regions will will be added soon.
You can purchase AppleCare+ in Apple retail stores or through the Apple Online Store.
