What you need to know
- Anyone buying AppleCare+ in the UK and Germany now have another payment option.
- They can now pay monthly and cover the usual products.
- The same payment option is already available in the United States.
Customers in the United Kingdom and Germany can now take out AppleCare+ and pay the enrollment fee via monthly payments for the first time. The same option has been available in the United States and select other countries for months.
Buyers still have up to 60 days to take out AppleCare+ and they can still pay for the cover in one lump sum if they prefer.
Anyone who already has AppleCaer+ having paid full price can switch to a monthly payment plan and extend their coverage beyond the standard 24-month coverage, too.

Since then he's seen the growth of the smartphone world, backed by iPhone, and new product categories come and go. Current expertise includes iOS, macOS, streaming services, and pretty much anything that has a battery or plugs into a wall.

He's been gaming since the Atari 2600 days and still struggles to comprehend the fact he can play console quality titles on his pocket computer.
