Best Buy is offering AppleCare plans from Sept. 13

August 17, 2015

From Sept. 13, you’ll be able to pick up an AppleCare or AppleCare+ plan from U.S. retailer Best Buy, according to a recent report.

The news, which comes from 9to5mac, has since been confirmed by a Best Buy internal training video obtained by MacRumors. AppleCare and AppleCare+ plans for the iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple Watch will be available from the retailer, and it’s expected to offer the same services and benefits as the same AppleCare plans sold by Apple itself.

MacRumors explains:

AppleCare+ purchased through Best Buy will include accidental damage coverage for the same service fees charged by Apple. Both protection plans will also cover the accessories in the box and most other products on the same transaction, such as an Apple Display or AirPort Express purchased alongside an iMac.

Of course, Best Buy is also expected to sell an AppleCare plan for the next-generation “iPhone 6s,” which will launch some time in September.

Up until now, Best Buy has reportedly been uncomfortable selling AppleCare and AppleCare+ plans, and has instead promoted its own extended warranty services. This, however, is no longer going to hold the retailer back from selling AppleCare. It seems the services will indeed go on-sale in Best Buy from Sept. 13, 2015.
