Warranty and Protection 

AppleCare+, Apple’s industry leading service and support product, is now available for retailers to add to their product offering through direct integration with RQ.

About AppleCare+

Exceptional customer experiences: AppleCare+ auto-enrollment enables you to attach AppleCare+ when you sell an iPhone so your customers are covered when they leave your location.

Smooth sales transactions: Enrolling a customer’s iPhone with AppleCare+ for iPhone is just a simple step in the RQ sales process. RQ links with Apple’s systems to ensure that auto-enrollment is quick and accurate.

Positive bottom line impact: The inherent consumer demand for AppleCare+ with the purchase of an iPhone gives retailers a lucrative channel for increasing revenues – without exposing themselves to inventory logistics, shrinkage, and handling costs.

Reliable and accessible metrics: The RQ and AppleCare+ integrated solution will allow retailers to view in-depth sales details, report on AppleCare+ enrollment metrics and easily reconcile all transactions in one place.

AppleCare+ is an extended service and support plan direct from Apple for iPhone and iPad products. Your customers receive two years of hardware protection and service — including two incidents of accidental damage — and can get help from Apple’s award-winning AppleCare support group as often as they would like. With Express Replacement service, Apple can usually replace the customer’s device the next business day if needed. Because Apple makes the hardware, the operating system and many of the applications customers use, no one else can provide such an amazing service and support experience. AppleCare+ extends the AppleCare experience to the customer’s home, hotel room, or other location.
