Nairobi - Airtel Friday announced that it will offer a 2-year insurance cover to its customers who purchase iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in any of its designated outlets in Kenya.
The insurance for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is designed to cover against theft or accidental damage.
“Accidental damage means physical damage or destruction caused by an accident,” the company said in a statement.
The insurance cover is an addition to the default one-year warranty from Apple upon purchase of an iPhone and any Apple accessories contained in the original packaging.
