There are so many mobile insurance coverage policies out there that it can be difficult to choose the right one. Gadget insurance brand, Protect Your Bubble, shares three quick facts consumers should keep in mind while shopping for iPhone coverage:
1. Apple’s Official Extended Warranty Only Covers Hardware Defects
While it may always seem like a good idea to check with the 1st party manufacturer before searching elsewhere, this is one case where that’ll definitely cost more money. If consumers get Apple’s traditional extended warranty after the first year of owning their iPhone, they’ll still just be covered for hardware and manufacturing defects. That means accidents, theft, and more won’t be covered.
2. Make Sure Your New Warranty Covers Water Damage
According to an askmen.com article, the most common accident that will prematurely end an iPhone’s life is water or liquid damage. This is particularly distinctive and easy to spot, so even if the phone had any other problems, if an inspection finds water damage, they’ll most likely go with water damage as the main cause. This means the consumer will need to shell out another $600 for a replacement. For those who want to avoid this risk entirely, make sure to go with a policy that will cover this type of damage.
3. Keep In Mind What The iPhone’s Natural Lifespan Is
For someone who’s likely to upgrade every one to two years, they probably don’t need an extended warranty for hardware defects. What you want is an insurance policy that will cover drops, cracked screens, and more. These things will shorten the device’s lifespan much more dramatically than a gradual hardware malfunction.
4. The Danger of Theft
No doubt, these devices are highly sought after…especially for criminals. Other warranty products on the market do not cover Loss and Theft. Protect Your Bubble’s mobile insurance will not only replace the device, but it will replace it in 24 hours. Having the device back in the customer’s hand as quickly as possible sets Protect Your Bubble apart from other warranties on the market.
