Yes, your phone is covered for one year for manufacturers defects. Applecare would extend that to two years.

This does not include loss, theft, accidental damage, etc.

The 14 days was a return period in case you wanted to return the iPhone outright (or with a 10% restocking fee on open box units).

The 1 year is the manufacturers warranty.

can i buy the Applecare plan next year, when the manufacture plan is about to expire?
You sure can! You can purchase Applecare at any time during the one year manufacturers warranty. :)

P.S. If you ordered your iPhone online, the manufacturers warranty begins when you ordered it, not when you received it. Just a little tip for those who ordered online.
