When purchasing any Apple equipment, it is usual that they offer the AppleCare plan, which includes a slight extension of the product warranty so that they can resolve any issues in the future if necessary. The regime of AppleCare + is also available for Mac computersincluding a slew of fixes that can be very helpful and not bad just in case, and it is clear enough that Apple has changed some of the prices.
In this case, it seems that Apple would have reacted and, given the commercial success of the M1 chip Macs compared to the Intel processor computers, they would have made the decision to AppleCare + price drop somewhat for MacBook Air and MacBook Pro that integrate this type of processors
Apple drops AppleCare + price for MacBook Air and MacBook Pro with M1 chip
As we mentioned, in this case the price of the AppleCare + support plan would have been reduced. Yes indeed, If for example you have a MacBook Air, you can take advantage of this additional guarantee for 199 dollars, a huge discount and may cause many users to consider purchasing this plan with their computers.
On the other hand, In case you have a 13-inch MacBook Pro, its price has also been reduced somewhat, in this case up to 279 dollars.
However, what stands out most is that the discount only applies to devices with Apple’s new M1 chip. Equipment such as the 16-inch MacBook Pro which incorporates an Intel processor, they maintain the price of 449 dollars. It might be related to fewer equipment failures with Apple’s own chip or something similar, but it’s definitely quite curious.
On the other hand, as reported by MacRumors apparently, if you recently purchased any of these support plans at the previous price and contact Apple Support, It is possible that they will lower the price of this warranty, although it does not work for everyone and it looks like it has only been tested in the United States., despite the fact that the discount has reached many countries.
