Airtel to offer insurance cover for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus

14 November 2014, 11:47 Nechesa Chemoi

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.

Airtel has also announced that it will offer unique data plans to customers who purchase the new devices from Airtel outlets. 

Customers who buy the 16GB which goes for KES 85, 999 or the 64GB iPhone 6 that costs KES 95, 999 will get a 3GB data per month for 3 months.
