Airport Extreme Apple Care
I bought my iMac in November and shortly after got the Apple Care Protection Plan for it. I have it all set up and covered.

Today I just bought an Airport Extreme and I thought I remembered reading that it would be covered by that same iMac Apple Care Plan should anything go wrong with it.

Does anyone know if this is true or if I was just smoking something funny that day?

Thanks for any input.

After several hours on Google it would appear that my AirPort Extreme is covered under my iMac Apple Care Protection Plan. So I answered my own question if what I read isn't a bunch of bologna. :-)

Where did you read that? If you can provide a link I'd like to look at that because I don't believe it's true. Apple care has traditionally been limited to the device it was purchased for, not peripherals such as the Airport Extreme or the Apple Cinema Display. Those are normally covered under a separate Apple care purchase per item.

Maybe I read it wrong but on this page under the heading "Apple Hardware Coverage" it lists the AirPort Extreme.

Apple (Canada) - Support - AppleCare - Mac and Apple Display

Also, on the back of the ACPP box I received it also mentions "Time Capsule or AirPort device" for hardware coverage.

It certainly does seem to read as that. I suspect it may be dependant on whether it was purchased as part of a package with the main computer, but nevertheless, it seems it's covered.

I agree with Kevriano. It does look like it's covered if purchased as part of a package. However, never assume anything... give Apple Canada a call and ask.

Probably a good idea to call them just to be sure.

I don't know if you read the fine print below but here's what it says:

The AirPort device or Time Capsule must be purchased up to two years before your Mac purchase or during the term of your AppleCare Protection Plan coverage.

So if I read that right, I should be covered because I purchased it during the term of my AppleCare Plan.

Sounds logical to me but on rare occasions I'm not the crispiest chip in the bag. :-)

That's quite an extraordinary warranty in that case then. They must be pretty sure that they will have few go wrong.

Bundy 01-08-2012 01:43 PM

That's my hope. I would much rather have nothing go wrong than have to rely on the extended warranty. :-)
