Apple has expanded AppleCare+ with Theft and Loss coverage, which includes up to two incidents of theft or loss of an iPhone, to the United Kingdom and Australia.

applecare header
Offered as an additional plan to customers in the United States, Japan, Germany, and now also the United Kingdom and Australia, ‌AppleCare‌+ with Theft and Loss coverage can help customers who unfortunately have had their devices stolen or lost get a replacement without having to pay the full cost of a new device. The plan requires customers to have to Find My ‌iPhone‌ enabled on their device when it was lost or stolen.

In the United Kingdom, ‌AppleCare‌+ with Theft and Loss coverage will cost £11.99 a month or £239 per year, with an additional excess fee of £109 to replace an ‌iPhone‌. In Australia, ‌AppleCare‌+ with Theft and Loss costs $15.99 per month or $319 per year, with an additional $229 for specific incidents of theft or loss.

‌AppleCare‌+ with Theft and Loss is offered alongside the standard ‌AppleCare‌+ package, which lacks coverage for theft and loss incidents.

Who in their right mind would spend that much on this? Standard home contents insurance would cover this.

its interesting to see peoples views on these.

You’re paying £239 for the insurance and then £109 when you claim.

Maybe if you’ve a pro max with 1TB of storage that’s a good deal, but if it’s a base model pro that originally cost £949 but at the point of loss is probably worth a lot less I’m not convinced.
If you can afford to replace your phone yourself, you shouldn't be outsourcing 'peace of mind' especially not to a company with margins like Apple. Just keep the premiums and run your own mini insurance company for yourself. You'll come out on top in the end.

Also seems expensive. You can get a Nationwide Flex Plus account with similar terms but covering multiple phones and all kinds of other thing like car breakdown and travel insurance for £13 a month.

Other banks do similar things. I realise not everyone can get that account but the value proposition of this seems poor.

This is terrible value for money.

It's an insurance policy at the end of the day, and a very expensive one at that. I get phone insurance, travel insurance and vehicle assistance/recovery insurance with my bank account for less than this.
