AppleCare+ for New iPad Pro Models Priced at $130, Out-of-Warranty Repairs Cost Up to $649

Alongside the release of updated 11 and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models, Apple has increased the price of AppleCare+ for the iPad Pro from $99 to $129 in the United States.

AppleCare+ for all 10.5, 11, and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models, which is the entire device lineup, will now cost $129.


AppleCare+ extends the warranty on the iPad Pro to two years from the date of purchase, and it covers two incidents of accidental damage subjected to a $49 service fee. The protection plan also covers the Apple Pencil.

AppleCare+ must be purchased alongside a new iPad Pro or within 60 days, with Apple using an online or in-store verification process for AppleCare+ purchases made after an iPad Pro purchase.

Sans AppleCare+, out-of-warranty repairs on the new iPad Pro models are expensive. Repairs on the new 11-inch iPad Pro will cost $499, while repairs on the new 12-inch iPad Pro will cost $649. Repairs for the 10.5-inch iPad Pro will cost $449.

The new 11 and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models can be purchased today from the Apple online store, with shipments set to arrive on November 7. The 11-inch model is priced starting at $799 and the 12.9-inch model is priced starting at $999.

I am sloooowly coming round to the realisation that:

1. I am not Apple's demographic;
2. I am too poor to own Apple products.

C'est la vie. :oops:

Buyers don't care. Even if it cost $1,999 for apple care...they will buy it.


Remember when the iPad was a nice to have secondary device around the house for entertainment purposes. This is one expensive Netflix machine of a Pro device that does not support multi-user accounts.

Lol, Apple has lost touch with reality, this is some RDF pricing.

Never needed AppleCare for any of my devices, if one does there are more affordable options.

Nah, buying Apple products frequently will make the “average” consumer poor faster. Seriously beautiful products released today, however not indicted to purchase any of them.

Apple does not want people to upgrade annually, by increasing the price people will use their devices longer and Apple can claim its Environmentally Green prize. Is this not evident to people.


Come on, really?

Serious question. It’s $299 for iPhone XS Max AppleCare. Why is that so much more than an iPad Pro? Just seems like a pretty large increase in a much smaller screen/device.

Apple is just pushing it. Perhaps some components might play some part to it...but this is insane.
