    On Tuesday, Apple made some changes to the way it offers its AppleCare+ protection plan to its customers for the company's mobile devices.

    One of the significant changes has to do with the fact that Apple is increasing the purchase window for AppleCare protection from 30 days to 60 days, as 9to5Mac reports. This means that instead of only having 30 days after purchasing a mobile device from Apple, customers now have up to 60 days to decide if they want to buy into the protection plan and keep their devices protected from potential problems.

    The protection plan gives Apple device buyers some peace of mind in knowing that even after some technical failure having to do with manufacturer defects or even some accidental damages, the device can be repaired or replaced as necessary. It also gives that buyer over-the-phone support for problems that they may be having with their machine.

    The report also mentions that Apple will no longer be offering the AppleCare protection extension, forcing all device buyers to go with AppleCare+ or just the standard 90-day support after purchase at the time of purchase in an attempt to increase user adoption of the service.
