What has changed with AppleCare+ for iPhone XS or Apple Watch and why you should consider coverage

What has changed with AppleCare+ for iPhone XS or Apple Watch and why you should consider coverage:

All in all, Apple’s new monthly payments option makes it a lot easier to get AppleCare+ coverage for any new iPhone or Apple Watch. Considering the insanely high cost for back glass repairs on new iPhones, AppleCare+ coverage is more worth it than it ever has before.

On top of that, $4 or $5 a month more for theft and loss protection is a no-brainer for anyone with a history of losing their phones. If you’re getting AppleCare+, adding Theft and Loss is highly advisable, unless you are completely certain you won’t misplace your phone or have it stolen from your possession.

If you shelling out around or over 1k for an iPhone or indeed considering an Apple Watch, AppleCare gives a peace of mind that should the worst happen, it won’t hit as hard in the pocket.

Why we should be wary of Apple Watch ‘ultimate’ health guardian claims

Why we should be wary of Apple Watch ‘ultimate’ health guardian claims | Cult of Mac:

The ultimate guardian for your health? The problem here isn’t necessarily with the technology itself — which may (and probably does) work incredibly well. Hence the FDA clearance.

It is, instead, the risk of misleading the public into thinking that the device can be totally relied on it and is, to use the words of Apple COO Jeff Williams, the “ultimate guardian for your health.” Apple is a brilliant company when it comes to marketing. As a recent video compiling all the adjectives at last week’s Apple event makes clear, it is also a master of hyperbole. But when it comes to selling medical products, rather than just cool consumer products, this behavior won’t necessarily fly.

As Murthy concludes, “We’d never accept such broad statements from a pharmaceutical ad and we shouldn’t accept it from marketing for a device.”
