Airpod Apple Care worth it?

My last experience with ipad mini 256gb broken screen worth 400SGD unit replacement / half of original cost convince me to now consider applecare.


While at it im due to replace my airpod which just lasted 1 year, The battery seems lasting only for an hour from 3hours.

Is 40+ applecare for airpod worth it? I've originally inquire while I was at store and CS told me I should consider it since I can 1-1 replace it before 2 years with no limited times... at no cost and they normally don't repair it.

You are buying AppleCare for a new AirPod that you are buying or you are thinking of buying AppleCare for an AirPod which warranty is expiring?

Not unlimited times, not for any casual reasoning either. https://support.apple.com/en-sg/airpods/repair/service

Also they don't repair because it is impossible to repair airpods.

Don't be herded by the apple genius because of what they say, their word isn't the law, Apple's terms and conditions is.

No itís not worth it. By the time the AirPods battery depletes, youíll most likely have AirPods generation 4 or even 5 out in the market.

whoa.
within 6 month is usually covered by the original AC warranty.
unless your usage is so high that you're certain you'll need to replace every half a year.
