Apple offers its two-year AppleCare+ protection that includes accidental damage for the new iPads for $129. Especially if you’re buying a $1,000+ new iPad Pro, the coverage is looking more and more like a good move.

AppleCare+ covers two incidences of accidental damage, each with a $49 deductible. But considering that one accident will more than pays for itself, more customers may be opting for the insurance.

Also, keep in mind that AppleCare+ covers an Apple Pencil, power adapter, and USB cable as well.

AppleCare+ provides repair or replacement coverage, both parts and labor, from Apple-authorized technicians. Service coverage includes the following:

  • Your iPad
  • Battery (1)
  • AirPort (4)
  • Included USB cable and power adapter
  • Apple Pencil purchased with your iPad
  • Up to two incidents of accidental damage from handling, each subject to a service fee of $49 for iPad and $29 for Apple Pencil, plus applicable tax
