    Who's planning on getting AppleCare+ with your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 plus?

    I'm definitely getting it. The phone is so expensive (since I buy it outright) that the idea of being out of pocket $900 really bugs me.

    Does the warranty transfer if you sell the phone before the 2 years is up?

    Transfer your AppleCare plan
    If you sell or give away your Apple device, you can also transfer the ownership of your AppleCare Protection Plan or AppleCare+ in regions that allow it. You can also transfer your AppleCare coverage plan between your own devices that are the same type of product and within 30 days of your original device purchase.

    It's something you buy and hope you never need. I had to use it last month to get my iPhone 6 Plus replaced. It took less than 30 minutes at the store and I walked out with a new iPhone.

    I'm going through apple this time, not AT&T and getting apple care. It only cost a few more dollars difference a month. It would be foolish not to get it.

    For me I pay up front and not X per month so the up front is hundreds more and I never end up using it so I dont bother with it any more

    Same here, I pay upfront for my iPhone so to add Applecare on top would be too much, Also I only keep my phones for twelve months.

    I got it for my 7. I always get apple care on all my apple products. Most things I buy are for my kids. My kids are all under 8 so the insurance makes sense. However, knock on wood, I've never had to use it for my kids. I have however used it myself for a dropped iPhone before.

    I've never gotten the Apple Care in the past, but I may start. Given the cost and importance of a mobile phone in my life these days, it seems only logical to protect them as much as possible.

    I've always had apple care on my apple products, because it's not only for damage, but also tech help with your products
