AppleCare+ question

IfI got my iPad Pro, Pencil and Magic keyboard at different times, will buying AppleCare + cover all the devices from 2 years when they were purchased (following respective purchase dates) or follow the iPad Pro purchase date?

Extends 2 yrs from date of purchase of ac+. So to maximize your coverage; get ac+ nearing the 60th day

Enjoy two years of peace of mind when you buy AppleCare+ for iPad.
Every iPad comes with one year of hardware repair coverage through its one-year limited warranty and up to 90 days of complimentary technical support. AppleCare+ extends your iPad, Apple Pencil and Apple-branded iPad keyboard coverage to two years from your AppleCare+ purchase date and adds up to two incidents of accidental damage protection every 12 months. Each incident is subject to a service fee of S$68 for iPad and S$42 for Apple Pencil or Apple-branded iPad keyboard.1 In addition, youíll get 24/7 priority access to Apple experts by chat or phone through *getsupport.apple.com.

Only question is if keyboard and pencil are bought at different times, how would the coverage work?

It either follows your iPad applecare+ expiry or it's own 1 year limited warranty. Whichever ends later.

Update - was at the jewel Apple store today and asked

Basically both the Pencil and Magic keyboard extended warranty dates will be tied together with the iPad Pro, regardless of when they were purchased

Your AppleCare+ end date will be exactly 24 months after your iPad purchase date, regardless of how early/late you purchase your Apple Pencil, Magic Keyboard or even the AppleCare+ plan. (AppleCare+ plan available for purchase for 60 days from the iPad Purchase date)

This is what the sales told me when I asked about the AppleCare+ I bought with my ipad. AppleCare+ will start from the date of purchase of the ipad.

Can always get back the remaining AC+ fees when you sell your product.
