AppleCare+ Now Available in Norway [Update: Also Finland and Denmark]

AppleCare+ is now available in Norway, according to Apple's Norwegian website. Previously, ‌AppleCare‌ was the only option in Norway for Apple devices. ‌AppleCare‌ essentially only extends the standard warranty on Apple products, but ‌AppleCare‌+ includes two instances of accidental damage with a deductible.

‌AppleCare‌+ is supported on Mac, iPhone, iPad, ‌iPad‌, Apple Displays, iPod, and Headphones in Norway. The Apple TV retains standard ‌AppleCare‌, as has been the case in other regions, and is not eligible for ‌AppleCare‌+. The HomePod does not seem to be supported by either ‌AppleCare‌ plan in Norway at this time.

Apple has recently been making a number of changes to ‌AppleCare‌ worldwide, including extending AppleCare eligibility to one year in the U.S. and Canada, changing accidental damage cover, and the lowering cost of theft and loss deductables.

Apple has also expanded ‌AppleCare‌+ monthly payments to Canada, Australia, and Japan, as well as the UK and Germany.

Update: ‌AppleCare‌+ is also now available in Finland and Denmark. The expansion to all three countries seems to have occurred alongside Apple's September 15 event.

Prior to September 15, ‌AppleCare‌+ was only available in Scandinavia in Sweden, likely because the country has physical Apple Stores.

For us in Norway the only added value with AppleCare+ is the two accidental damages.
We have 5 years coverage under Norwegian Consumer Protection laws so the additional support and extended warranty is basically redundant.
Not entirely correct. The coverage of 5 years you are referring to is a right of complaint (reklamasjonsrett) and not the same as a warranty. It means that you have to file a complaint without undue delay after finding something wrong with your product. If you file a complaint within 6 months after purchase, it is automatically assumed the product was faulty to begin with. After 6 months it's basically up to you to prove that it wasn't your fault. With AppleCare+ you don't need to argue.

You can't buy HomePod in Norway, so that would be the reason why they don't offer it.

I posted ('https://www.reddit.com/r/apple/comments/ixlexj/applecare_is_finally_available_in_norway/') this in the r/Apple subreddit earlier today, so I would not be surprised if that's where MacRumors have picked it up from, as I have not seen any mentions on reddit or other places about it previously, until I made a post.

They've also added AppleCare+ as options in Denmark and Finland, as it was previously only available in Sweden (In the Nordics), where they have physical retail presence.

True! But I used that for MacPro and it went through without any issues after 3 years after purchase! My machine was replaced by Apple
