AppleCare+ Monthly Payments was limited to Australia, Canada, Japan, and the United States. But now it has finally been made available in the UK and Germany.
The Monthly Payment Plan is available for iPhones, iPads, and Apple Watches, but until now it. So, now six territories are supporting the AppleCare+ Monthly plan after expanding the scheme to the UK and Germany.
The AppleCare+ support document has been updated and states that,
In these countries and regions, when you purchase AppleCare+ coverage for your iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch, you can choose to pay monthly or pay upfront for 24 months of coverage. For Apple Watch Edition and Hermes, you can pay upfront for 36 months.
If you paid upfront, you can purchase coverage on a monthly basis after the 24 or 36 months is over. To purchase the new coverage, go to mysupport.apple.com. Or on your iPhone or iPad, go to Settings > General > About, then tap AppleCare+ Coverage Available and follow the onscreen instructions. This monthly plan automatically renews until canceled. You can’t pay upfront for an additional 24 or 36 months.
In Australia, Canada, Germany, the United Kingdom, and the United States, you can purchase the new coverage within 60 days of the end date of your original coverage. In Japan, you can purchase the new coverage within 30 days of the end date of your original coverage.
The Monthly Plan keeps on renewing until you manually cancel it. In contrast, if you have paid up front, you also have the option to continue later using AppleCare+.
