Apple is rolling out a major overhaul to its AppleCare product line this week, with the Cupertino-based tech giant announcing a new suite of new health care apps for iPhones and iPads.
AppleCare for iPhones will now include all four of Apple’s popular health insurance plans and a number of other premium products, including its annual deductible and co-pays.
The move comes as the company tries to bring some of its top-tier services like HealthCare and AppleCare into the Apple ecosystem, as the AppleInsider service for health care professionals is no longer available on iPhones.
AppleInsider, which has helped thousands of AppleInsiders get the new apps, is also making it easier to signup for AppleCare on a mobile device.
With the new app, AppleInsision users can now simply click on the “health” icon in the top right corner of the app, and enter their AppleCare account number.
If that number is different from the number that AppleCare asks users to enter, they’ll get a message indicating they need to reenter it.
Once signed up, users can then visit AppleInsides.com, select a HealthCare plan, and enroll.
AppleInsiders, a company that allows users to sign-up for health insurance coverage, is currently the only provider of the AppleCare app.
AppleInsights, another app, has been around since 2014, and offers an in-depth look at the health care costs and benefits for customers of the companies most popular brands, including Apple, Google, and Samsung.
