If you have AppleCare for the Apple TV, you just got some extra coverage.
As reported by MacRumors, Apple has extended existing AppleCare plans for the Apple TV to three years of coverage. The company announced the change in an email to customers who currently had the protection plan for their Apple TV.
The report speculates that Apple extended existing AppleCare plans to match the coverage of its new AppleCare+ plan for the new Apple TV 4K.
Apple announced AppleCare+ for the Apple TV 4K after the company's 'Spring loaded' event in April. Purchasing AppleCare+ for the new Apple TV 4K will extend Apple's warranty coverage to three years as well as add two incidents of accidental damage coverage every 12 months.
