Has anyone here transferred their AppleCare + to a new iPhone? I have AppleCare + on my iPhone 7+ and still have a year left on it and want to put it on the iPhone X I’m going to pre-order Friday morning.

Any advice?

Applecare+ is tied to the device it is originally purchased for. You can get a pro-rated rated refund for the unused portion of Applecare+ and just buy new Applecare+ for your new device.

I was basing my post on an Apple article I read.

But a refund of the unused portion will work.

But did you buy your 7 in the last month?

You can always transfer Applecare+ to someone you sell your covered device to. I've done that a couple of times.
