The third-generation AirPods.  

When you buy AirPods, they come with a limited warranty to cover manufacturing defects and hardware failures. You can also optionally extend your AirPods’ warranty by buying additional AppleCare coverage for a limited time after purchase.

Whichever warranty you have for your ‌AirPods, AirPods Pro, or AirPods Max, you can easily check their coverage status. This article show you how it’s done.

Understanding your AirPod warranty

The Apple Limited Warranty covers your AirPods and the Apple-branded accessories that come in the box with your product against manufacturing issues for one year from the date you bought them.

The AirPods limited warranty does not cover battery-related issues, normal wear and tear (like scratches and dents from dropping your earbuds or repeatedly placing them on rough surfaces), or if your AirPods are stolen.

Defects from accidents (dropping your AirPods in water) are not covered.

If you get your AirPods repaired by someone who isn’t an Apple-authorized provider, your warranty is void.

This warranty does not apply to used Apple AirPods.

AppleCare for Headphones extends the Apple One Year Limited Warranty to two years (starting from the date AppleCare is purchased). It covers up to two incidents related to accidental damage every 12 months, subject to a service fee of $29 per incident (plus applicable tax). Customers with AppleCare can return their damaged AirPods and/or Charging Case to Apple, and they will replace the items.

Whether you are under warranty or not, Apple has an after-service guarantee. Apple guarantees any service done to their products for 90 days or until your Apple warranty ends, whichever of the two is longer. This guarantee applies to products serviced by Apple directly or an Apple Authorized Service Provider.
