  • Service and support direct from Apple for accidental damage (limited to 2 total) and hardware in-warranty Claims for mechanical or electrical malfunctions.

  • Service at Apple Stores and Apple Authorized Service Providers.

When do I file a Claim?

File a Claim if your device experiences accidental damage, theft, is lost, or experiences a mechanical or electrical malfunction.

With Device Protection Plan featuring AppleCare Services, your Apple device is covered for mechanical or electrical malfunctions (hardware in-warranty) for 24 months from enrollment. If your device malfunctions during this time, you can file a Claim directly with Apple. Hardware in-warranty Claims filed within this period do not require a Deductible and do not count towards your Claim limits. From month 25 of enrollment onward (out-of-warranty), your Apple device is covered for mechanical or electrical malfunctions through Likewize. These Claims require payment of a Deductible and count towards your Claim limit.

How do I know if I file a Claim with Apple or with Likewize?
File a Claim with Apple if you have been enrolled in the program for 24 months or less, and…
  • You have not yet filed 2 Claims for accidental damage from handling with Apple
  • Your device is experiencing an electrical or mechanical malfunction
File a Claim with Likewize...
  • For all Claims due to Theft or if your device is Lost at any time during your enrollment in the plan
  • If you have already filed your total of 2 accidental damage from handling Claims with Apple in the first 24 months of enrollment and it’s been at least 12 months since your last accidental damage from handling Claim
  • If you have been enrolled in the program for 25 months or more and your device experiences accidental damage from handling, or an out-of-warranty electrical or mechanical malfunction
The above is provided as a guide. You must have available Claims per the terms and conditions of your plan.

You can always log on to My Plan or call Likewize at 1-855-687-5850 to determine your available Claims and where to file.
How do I submit a Claim with Apple?

  1. The best place to start is getsupport.apple.com. Just answer a few questions and you’ll be presented with options to help resolve your issue.
  2. Go to locate.apple.com to find an Apple Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider near you.
  3. Call 1-800-APL-CARE to speak directly to an AppleCare Advisor.
The first 2 AppleCare Services accidental damage from handling Claims and all Apple hardware in-warranty Claims can be filed with Apple at any time during the first 24 months of enrollment.

How do I submit a Claim with Likewize?

Our Claim process is fast, easy, and secure. Simply visit our Claim page, provide information about your protected device and details about what happened, pay the applicable Deductible, and follow the directions to get your device repaired or replaced.

If I receive a replacement device as the result of an approved Claim, is the new device protected?

Yes, your replacement device is protected but the warranty for malfunctions may be different based on when you received it. If you received your replacement device within the first 24 months of enrollment, your warranty with Apple continues through month 24 of enrollment in the plan or for 90 days from the date your replacement device was shipped, whichever is longer. If you received your replacement device in month 25 or onward, your device comes with a 90-day warranty from Likewize.

I enrolled in the program but Apple doesn’t show my enrollment when I call or visit a store?

If you enrolled in the program in the last couple of days, your enrollment may not yet be showing up in the AppleCare Services system. This may take 1-2 days. To allow the Apple representative to assist you, please provide a proof of purchase showing that you recently enrolled in the AppleCare Services Program.

What happens after month 24 of enrollment?

At month 25 post enrollment, your AppleCare Services benefits end and you now receive the same great protection administered by Likewize. You'll also be protected for out-of-warranty malfunctions.

Your Claim limits remain the same except Claims for out-of-warranty mechanical and electrical malfunction now count towards your accidental damage from handling Claim limit. You can contact Likewize directly if your device is accidentally damaged from handling, lost, experiences a theft, or experiences a mechanical or electrical malfunction. The same plan fees apply.

What determines if a repair option is available once my AppleCare Services portion of the plan expires?

Location, device make/model, type of damage, and repair or replacement part availability can influence the choices of replacement vs. repair. For example, brand new models may not be available for repair right away, and certain types of damage such as liquid damage are not eligible for repair.

How soon will I receive my replacement?

If your replacement Claim is approved, your replacement will be shipped to arrive the 2nd business day. You can also get it sooner – overnight or on Saturday, for an additional fee.

What if there’s not a repair location near me?

Don’t worry, Apple has repair partners who accept devices via mail. You will receive a prepaid label, all you need to do is package your device and mail it according to the instructions provided. It will be repaired and returned to you within 3 to 5 business days after we’ve received it.

What’s not covered?
