What is iPhone Insurance?

iPhone insurance is a type of mobile phone insurance designed specifically with iPhones in mind. All the coverage that is included takes into account the requirements of Apple products and services. This way, if something happens to your phone, you can be sure that our insurance will cover it.

Do you need iPhone insurance?

iPhones are among the most expensive phone models on the market, but also the most popular. Thanks to their gorgeous design and clean operating system, Apple iPhones are highly sought-after smartphones.

However, imagine if something happened to your £1000+ phone – would you be able to pay for a replacement or repairs right away? It isn’t easy to find that much money at short notice…

Apple iPhone insurance gives you the chance to pay a small monthly or annual premium so that if anything happens to your device, the insurer will repair it or replace it. This will be taken care of within days and with nothing except the excess to pay (usually from £30 – £175, depending on the device).

This gives you a more affordable way to get your precious iPhone back in working order after a mishap and handle the mounting cost of repairing or replacing your Apple device. You can get iPhone 13 insurance, iPhone 12 insurance… in fact, almost any model of iPhone can be insured by loveit coverit. Find a list of the popular devices insured with us below.

loveit coverit iPhone insurance vs Apple Care+

When buying a new phone, Apple always offers the option to take out Apple Care+ as means of protecting your new device. But is Apple Care+ better or worse than our specialist insurance? It really depends on the level of protection you are looking for. One of the most frequently asked questions we get is ‘Can I insure an iPhone after purchase?’. The answer is yes, you can. However, if you are choosing Apple Care, you can only insure your device up to 60 days after purchase, whereas with loveit coverit, you can insure your device up to 36 months after the purchase. To find out which option is better for you, check out the comparison table below.

How often will you need to pay for your iPhone insurance?

This depends on which type of insurance policy you have chosen – monthly or annual. We like to give our customers the option so you can pick whichever you prefer.
If you’ve chosen a monthly policy, you will have to pay once a month on a date most convenient for you. You could time your payment with your payday so you know when your expenses will leave your account. If you’ve chosen an annual policy, you will have to pay once a year. This can be ideal if you simply want to pay for 12 months of cover up front. That way, you know your insurance is sorted for the whole year!

Please note, we don’t take any payments in the first 14 days after the policy start date, therefore your first two payments might be taken in the same month (if you’ve chosen a monthly policy). Don’t worry if this happens. After the first month, you will only have to pay once a month.

Excess on iPhone insurance

If you have to make a claim, you will have to pay an excess. The excess is a small amount of the initial cost for repairs or a replacement, then we take care of the rest.

Excess usually depends on your iPhone model and claim type. Higher-priced devices and loss or theft claims have a higher excess, while cheaper phones and accidental damage claims have lower excess.

You can take a look at our policy excess table to find out exactly what you’d need to pay in each situation.

How does the age of your handset affect the cost of iPhone insurance?

Usually, the older the iPhone gets, the cheaper it becomes to insure. This is usually because demand for them drops as newer models are released.
We always check the changes in the selling prices of iPhones so that we can offer the most competitive price for you.
However, it is important to remember that we can only insure phones up to 36 months old.

Common exclusions with loveit coverit iPhone insurance

When looking to get your phone insured, there are a few things that may prevent you from getting an iPhone insurance policy. This is mainly due to the condition the iPhone is already in or where it was purchased from.

The most common insurance exclusions are:

We can’t insure your iPhone if it is already damaged
We can’t insure your phone if it is more than thirty six months old
We can’t insure your phone if it is not purchased from UK VAT registered company
We can’t insure your phone if you’re not a resident of the UK
We can’t insure your phone if it is grade B or C refurbished
We can’t accept your claim if you have not paid for your iPhone insurance

You can check the full list of exclusions to make sure your phone can be insured.
