    I bought iPad 3 few months back. I always wanted to take AppleCare for my iPad as it is very expensive piece for getting it repaired, but I just waited because I thought if I take the apple care at the end of my 1 year warranty period, I will get totally 3 years of protection. Is this a bad idea? Can I get apple care for my iPad anytime within 1
    Year? Is the apple care worth taking in India. I am asking this because I don't know whether Indian applestore will accept accidental damage like the us stores.

    Thanks,
    Agnel

    Go here and all your questions will be answered:
    Apple - Support - AppleCare - FAQ
    Basically you can add it within the first year but coverage begins with DATE OF PURCHASE.
    So you really won't gain any coverage time.
    Also I THINK Apple may want to inspect the device before issuing the policy.

    But this says 30 days:
    Important notes

    AppleCare+ must be purchased within 30 days of the date you bought your new iPhone. If you did not purchase AppleCare+ with your iPhone, you may purchase it at an Apple Retail Store. To buy AppleCare+ at an Apple Retail Store, a Specialist will first need to verify your iPhone purchase date and confirm that your iPhone has no pre-existing damage. Find an Apple Retail Store.

    See AppleCare+ Terms and Conditions for complete product details.
