Although Lindsay Lohan has run the gauntlet of cell phones, she's become a BlackBerry convert and sticks with Apple for her computer needs. Lindsay recently lamented on Twitter about how her MacBook took a beating during her recent travels and ended up with a cracked screen. I know how expensive replacing screens can be, and unfortunately the star had to learn the hard way that accidental breakage isn't covered on Apple's warranty or by their protection plans.
Besides Lindsay's cracked screen, what else isn't covered through warranty or an APP? Find out when you read more.
Even if you have paid extra for an AppleCare Protection Plan, these items are excluded from your coverage:
- Installation of noncovered equipment or software
- Damage caused by accident, abuse, neglect, misuse, unauthorized modification, extreme environment (like temps and humidity), extreme physical or electrical stress, fluctuation or surges, lightning, static electricity, fire, and even . . . acts of God
- Problems caused by a third-party or non Apple-branded device
- Lost or stolen equipment
- Cosmetic damage to your device, including scratches, dents, and broken plastic on ports
- Batteries, except in respect to battery coverage under APP for iPod, or unless failure has occurred due to a defect in materials and workmanship
- Preventative maintenance
- Defects caused by normal wear and tear
