    AppleInsider reports that Apple has changed its AppleCare+ for iPad policy to enable schools and other educational institutions to get three years worth of AppleCare+ for the same price ($99) as the regular two-year policy.

    AppleInsider says that this new policy only applies to educational institutions and not to purchases made by individual students or faculty members for their own personal use.

    AppleInsider notes that this move by Apple is motivated by the company’s desire to shore up its dominance in the educational tablet market, with the iPad currently having a 95% share of the US education tablet market.

      Honestly this kind of pisses me off. They get that hundred dollar discount and now extra apple care. Almost makes me want to buy my next iPad through a school somehow. Why can't they do this for everyone?

      Blah. :(

      Because students and their parents, by default, are poor and need every break they can get. Good job Apple!

      Also schools are poor and they also need breaks. Apple is also using it to their advantage to get access to the schools. Win-win all sides.

      I think it's a very good thing Apple are doing here.....it helps the schools and our kids so anything extra they get is a bonus for the community at large. Although you would think it would encourage the schools to hang onto the iPads for 3 years before upgrading them.....or maybe that's the norm already.

      I just wish we had Apple Care+ here also.

      We do have the basic Apple Care, just not the Apple Care Plus type where you can get up to 2 incidents of accidental damage coverage.

      I just don't know why but it's not available for anyone in Australia. I would definitely get it if I could! :(

      It should be the same everywhere.

      I feel the same way and it's a peeve for me.....we also pay more for anything in the App Store and iTunes too which has nothing to do with exchange rates of our Dollar versus the US dollar......it's just the way it's always been!

      And it's not just Apple who does this to us Aussies! :(
