Our Editor's Notes on AppleCare's Phone-Based Customer Care

AppleCare is Apple's extended warranty and customer service plan. Users of Apple devices have the option of adding AppleCare at the time of purchase or, in some cases, within a specific time frame after purchasing a device. As Apple is one of the largest electronics companies in the world, it isn't surprising that AppleCare gets a lot of phone calls each and every day.

Why Do People Call AppleCare Customer Support?

People call AppleCare customer support for a range of reasons, including:

  • Troubleshooting and technical support
  • Questions on device operation and features
  • Questions about AppleCare coverage
  • Assistance with repair and maintenance issues
  • Billing questions
  • Questions about policy coverage
  • Reporting a stolen device

AppleCare offers 24/7 support to its subscribers.

Best Practices for Calling AppleCare Customer Service

There are several things that you can do to help ensure that your call with Apple Care customer service will be resolved promptly and professionally:

  • Before contacting Apple Care, make sure that you have documentation relevant to your case handy. This includes product serial numbers, order numbers, billing statements or previous correspondence with AppleCare regarding your case.
  • If you are calling for technical support, make sure you can access your computer or device so that you and the customer service representative can troubleshoot together.
  • Have pen and paper handy so that you can take notes during your call.
  • Before calling, make sure your AppleCare subscription is active.

How do Consumers Feel About Calling AppleCare Customer Service?

AppleCare has a good reputation for providing excellent customer support to callers. Apple is a company that usually stands behind its products and tries to cultivate customer loyalty to ensure repeat sales.

What Kind of Issues can AppleCare Customer Service Representative Resolve?

AppleCare customer service can resolve most issues related to Apple products, including technical issues, questions about product features, troubleshooting, providing information on repairs or returns or explaining AppleCare benefits, limitations and features.

What Can't Be Resolved With a Call to AppleCare Customer Service?

If you have a malfunctioning or damaged AppleCare product, your AppleCare customer support agent can provide information on sending or bringing in your device for repair, but obviously cannot repair the item for you. If there is an Apple Store or authorized repair provider in your area, you may be directed by AppleCare to bring your device there for diagnostics and repair.

It should also be noted that some AppleCare repairs require you to pay an additional fee. These fees are less than you'd pay for the same repair if you didn't have an AppleCare plan, but they are required nonetheless. However, 24/7 customer support is always available with an AppleCare plan.

Finally, AppleCare does not provide unlimited replacements on lost or damaged devices. Refer to your plan details to determine these limitations.

What Should You Do If You Have an Unsuccessful Call with AppleCare?

If you get off the phone with AppleCare customer support and feel that were not understood or that your concern has not been resolved, don't fret. You may still have options.

First, review the notes you took during your call. You may be able to detect areas of misunderstanding or miscommunication. You can bring these up when you call AppleCare again.

Next, call back. Some customer service representatives are better trained or have more experience than others. The next person you speak to might be in a better position to help.

If you are unable to resolve your issue over the phone with AppleCare, try getting in touch another way. AppleCare also provides live chat and email support. You might find that it is easier to communicate in a text-based medium. In addition, you will have a transcript of your conversation, which may make things easier if you have to escalate your case.
