    curious how many of you are adding the extended coverage?

    my new Air 2 (finally upgrading from original ipad2!) should be here next week but unsure if i should spend ANOTHER $100 bucks!? with so many new changes i sort of feel like i should...but i really don't want to spend that much more...

    Every since they added the accident insurance I've purchased AppleCare with all my iOS devices. If nothing else it keeps me from panicking when I, inevitably, drop a device.

    Now I just start to panic, then remember that I'll only have to pay a fraction of the price to replace it if it's broke.

    So, it's all peace of mind at this point. I've never had to use it.

    Well, I did use the tech support once, when all my iCloud documents disappeared. I didn't really have to, but since I was paying anyway I figured I'd see how they did things; instead of just muddling through myself. I do keep backups. As a bonus, I got an extra year free on my iCloud Storage plan by way of apology.

    i go back and forth whether to get it or not...the $650 price is killing me already! think i'm going on about 4 years now and never dropped it...but the first one i bought started having a weird screen issue..TWO days before the one yr warranty was up! i was lucky...but the new untested gen does have me a little nervous. decisions decisions!

    thanks for your input!

    No problem. It's always a hard decision whether to pay for extra coverage. I've gotten into the habit of planing the extra $100 from the beginning. It helps if I don't keep second guessing myself. :)

    Verizon offers a "Total Protection Plan" on devices purchased through them for $10/month....
    It's what I'm using for my iPhone 6 and iPad Air 2......Repair or replacement for as long as the device is linked to a Verizon plan......

    I bought Apple care because I have used it on my Mac and find they are good with support.

    I make it a point to buy the applecare+ for all my devices. Like Twerppoet, I feel better about doing it. It gives me that added sense of protection for my device.

    When I first bought my iPhone 5, I opted for the Verizon protection plan. However, I didn't like the deductible you'd have to pay for a replacement if your device went bad. I dropped that and went with Applecare. It certainly paid off, last May when my battery was faulty. Apple replaced me with a new one, without charge! I was a happy camper! :)
