Apple expands annual AppleCare+ option to Mac users in more countries

New Mac buyers in Australia, Canada, and Japan can now get AppleCare+ through the same annual plan available to US customers.

A year after it made the option widely available in the US, Apple has now brought its annual AppleCare+ pricing to more countries. Instead of the previous three-year upfront commitment, new Mac users can have all of the benefits of AppleCare+ insurance for an annual fee.Just as with the US, however, Apple charges more for the convenience of having a smaller upfront outlay.
