In a surprise move, Apple has reduced the prices of AppleCare+ for the M1 MacBook Pro and MacBook Air in the United States.
AppleCare+ for the M1 MacBook Air previously cost $249, but Apple has now reduced its price to $199. The new price tag is also applicable for the Intel-based MacBook Air models as well, though Apple no longer officially sells one.
For the M1 13-inch MacBook Pro, Apple has reduced the price to $249 from $269. That’s a slight reduction of just $20 but still makes the extended warranty package from the company cheaper than before. The AppleCare+ pricing for the Intel-based 13-inch MacBook Pro remains the same at $269.
The lower AppleCare+ pricing is not just limited to the United States but also available in other countries.
Earlier this year, Apple allowed users to extend AppleCare+ coverage for their Mac for an indefinite period of time.
AppleCare+ extends the warranty of your MacBook by two additional years. In addition, as a part of the extended warranty, Apple will cover two cases of accidental damages every year.
The lower pricing is only available for the AppleCare+ purchase plan. The service fee of $99 for screen damage or $299 for other damages remains the same as before.
If you recently purchased AppleCare+ for your M1 MacBook Air or MacBook Pro, you can contact Apple to get a refund.[Via MacRumors]
