I have AppleCare+ on my watch and on my iPhone.

 

I had it on my previous iPone 6 and it turned out to be invaluable. Right on the final day of the two year period, it died for no apparent reason and Apple had it replaced within a couple of days.

 

I gifted it to my wife and got myself a new iPhone. Everyone was happy.

 

My main reason is not so much the warranty aspect, but more the insurance aspect - they'll replace a broken one, virtually unchallenged.

Given that I’ve had to wait a month for contents insurance (State) to replace a phone - no thanks.

The two times I have had AppleCare+ replace my device (faulty screen once, dropped by accident the second time), Apple have sent me a replacement device in 2 days, and only then did I have to send in the old phone.

No challenging, no screwing around.

I have never had that experience with an NZ insurer, the few dollars I would save aren’t worth it.
