Apple now offering AppleCare for iPhone in Canada

Apple has begun offering its AppleCare Protection Plan for the iPhone in Canada. The plan extends Canadian iPhone users’ warranties to two years from the original purchase date of the phone, including technical support and hardware repair coverage — both parts and labor — for any iPhone 3G or 3GS, its battery, included accessories, and an iPhone Bluetooth Headset. Mac Rumors notes that the launch occurs just after the one-year cut off date for early Canadian adopters of the iPhone 3G, and says reader reports indicate that Apple Canada is not providing an extension for the affected customers. The AppleCare Protection Plan is available now from the Canadian Apple Store and sells for $79 CAD.
