According to a source, in the upcoming weeks, AppleCare+ will be heading to Australia for the first time for the iPhone, iPod, and iPad. Australia Apple store employees will begin training soon on selling the protection plan. The premium service launched in the U.S. in 2011 and offers extended warranty for two years as well as two accidental damage incidents. Currently, Australian customers are only able to purchase the standard AppleCare plan, which is less expensive and does not have replacements for accidental damages.

AppleCare+ started to include the iPad a year later in 2012 and was introduced to many other countries since. Countries that have this premium protection plan include China, Japan, Singapore, United Arab Emirates, Canada, Mexico, and other European countries. Typically, more countries are added to the list when new iPhones are released. With the iPhone 6 being not too far away, it is expected that Apple would add another country to the list of AppleCare countries, and in this case, Australia was the lucky chosen one.
