On Monday, Apple announced its newest wireless earbuds, the AirPods Pro. The $250 wireless earbuds are the most expensive we’ve seen from Apple, and also the most capable. The Pro version of the extremely popular AirPods includes active noise cancellation, a new transparency mode, improved sound, and a new design. However, if you’re going to pay $250 for some wireless earbuds, you should also consider paying $29 for two years of AppleCare+ coverage.

Apple published a support page that shows how much it will cost to replace an AirPods Pro or the charging case should you lose it or your dog decides it looks like a chew toy.

Without AppleCare+, replacing an AirPods Pro will set you back $89 per earbud. If you need to replace the charging case, that’ll cost you $89 as well.

The price for AppleCare+ is $29, and with that, you get an extended warranty as well as coverage for accidental damage. With AppleCare+ a damaged AirPods Pro or charging case will cost $29 to replace. That’s a fairly significant savings even if you have to replace an earbud on two different occasions. You’re given two “incidents” with the AppleCare+ fee, meaning you can replace two earbuds, or the charging case twice, or any combination and still play the lowered replacement fees.

Unfortunately, AppleCare+ doesn’t cover lost or stolen AirPods Pro, so you’ll have to pay the $89 replacement fee if you lose an earbud. A lost charging case will cost you $99.

Did you order the AirPods Pro? If so, did you opt for AppleCare+? Let us know in the comments below.

I'm a 50 year old PLC programmer from Burnley, UK. I severed my time as an electrician in the baking industry and soon got involved with the up and coming technology of PLC's. Initially this was all based in the Uk but as the years went by I have gradually worked my way around the globe. At first it was mainly Mitsubishi with a bit of Modicon thrown in but these days the industry leaders seem to be the Allen Bradley range of PLC and HMI’s.
