I just got my 6 plus a couple weeks ago and was thinking about getting Apple care. How long do I have to get it? I never got it before on any of my other devices so I'm not really sure how long I have.

60 days. You'll need to either take it into an Apple Store for inspection or do a diagnostic over the phone with Apple.

Thank you. What kind of diagnostic? The nearest Apple Store is over 2 hrs away so I will have to do it over the phone.

It's a remote diagnostic report that can reveal problems with the phone that would make the phone ineligible for AppleCare+.
