Apple gives a warranty for all its new and refurbished products. Whenever you guys buy a new Apple product, be it an iPhone, iPad, or MacBook. It actually comes with a Limited Warranty of one year from the date of purchase. This means that Apple will take care of any defects or faults that plague your product in the very first year of its use. You can also upgrade to a 3-year AppleCare+ Warranty for an extra charge.

Apple also offers many Extended Warranty packages which cover your product issues an additional year. Sadly, these are really expensive. Such as, the extended warranty for a new MacBook Air starts at $249 (Rs.18,500), while an extended warranty package for an iPhone costs just nearly $200 (Rs.14,800). You can select to opt for the said warranty considering the fact that fixing any problems along with your Apple product could potentially cost a lot more.
