Every iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Apple TV, and Mac comes with a one-year warranty against manufacturing defects and hardware failures. If you choose, you can also extend that warranty for additional years with AppleCare. Regardless of which warranty you have, you can easily find out whether or not your Apple products are currently covered.

How to easily find the AppleCare warranty information for all of your devices

You can check the AppleCare status of all your Apple devices in one convenient place from your best Mac. With macOS Ventura, it's easier than ever.

Is AppleCare+ worth it?

You may be wondering if AppleCare+ is worth putting on your iPhone or other devices, and our advice would be to look into all the options you have for warranty before you make a decision.

Of course, the basic version of AppleCare (the one you don't pay extra for) does not protect against any kind of accidental damage, so if you drop your iPhone and crack the screen, you won't be covered without AppleCare+. However, that might not matter to you for a device like an Apple TV that doesn't travel with you everywhere you go.

You don't need AppleCare+ on all your devices, you can pick and choose which devices need the extra warranty based on how you use them.
