New T-Mobile customers will be able to get AppleCare protection for their iPhone or iPad through the carrier's Premium Device Protection program.

T-Mobile has announced that it will start offering AppleCare device coverage for customers who purchase iPhones and iPad for its network. Apple's extended warranty program is being offered as a part of T-Mobile's existing Premium Device Protection at no additional cost. In addition to new customers, AppleCare services will also be available to those who purchased their device recently.

From T-Mobile (opens in new tab):

Both T-Mobile's Premium Device Protection (previously called Premium Handset Protection) and JUMP! with Premium Device Protection will now include AppleCare Services for eligible Un-carrier customers who recently purchased a new device. For just $12 a month, iPhone and iPad users can get complete peace of mind with protection from loss, theft or accidental damage, hardware coverage, the security features of Lookout Mobile Security® Premium—and now, award-winning AppleCare Services.

So what can you expect from the inclusion of AppleCare in your T-Mobile protection plan? Here's what T-Mobile says:

  • 24/7 priority access to AppleCare's award-winning technical support via chat or phone
  • Low service fees such as $29 for iPhone screen damage
  • $0 for battery service
  • Apple-certified repair or replacement at Apple Stores and Apple Authorized Service Providers
  • Software support for iOS, iCloud, and Apple-branded iOS apps
  • Hardware repairs and service backed by Apple

AppleCare protection is available for T-Mobile customers now.

  • Just get an otter box or life proof and you should be good. Battery issues are a whole different ball game I would just get the AppleCare out right in one shot through apple Sent from the iMore App
  • I got apple care plus from apple only Sent from the iMore App
  • AppleCare+ is around $129. In about 10 months of this you've paid it off. People typically get a new iPhone annually so there's an extra $24 you'll be paying under this plan if you upgrade each year. That may be worth it to some if you don't want to spend the $129 at one time. But if you don't upgrade annually...there's nothing about this that makes financial sense.
  • that 24 dollars also allows you to get a replacement phone should yours ever get lost or stolen (after deductible of course) So it's actually not that bad of a price considering
