The iPhone is well built and can last for a few years. However, if it’s broken, it’s annoyingly expensive to repair. Find out how to extend the warranty here.
If you’re based in the US, there’s a simple way to extend the Apple iPhone warranty extended from one year to two years for free.
This method will work for other devices such as laptops, cameras, or any electronic device that has a warranty.
The trick is you need to have an American Express credit card.
By using any Amex card to buy a product with a US manufacturer’s warranty of 5 years or less, Amex will give you an extra year of warranty. If your iPhone breaks during the second year, Amex will pay for the repair without any question asked.
Whenever you’re encountered a problem, call Amex directly and mention to them about claiming the extended warranty for your device.
What they need from you when making the claims are:
- Original receipt from the store
- Repair estimation cost from a verified repair center – date, serial number, lost type an cost must be included
You can head to your nearest Apple Store to get the repair estimation.
Then just fax them to (800) 858-5971. I’m just wondering why you can’t email these.
If you’re not covered, imagine how much you have to pay for the repair.
Other credit cards are offering similar coverage but it seems people are saying that Amex is the best option for this.
Another method is simply by using our service here which will get your device’s warranty extended for the next 11 months, even if the warranty has expired. The website iphoneox.com gives the warranty information about your device. Simply enter the 15 digit IMEI of your iPhone, and the warranty information will be displayed.

In any case, please read the fine prints as sometimes the warranty doesn’t cover accidental damages.
