Getting Apple Care + later
I am planning to get the iPhone 5S online tomorrow hopefully, I live abroad and was planning to get it through Apple.com (I will handle the shipping). Since the warranty is not international I will have to get Apple Care + since I only come to the US twice or once a year. So lets say If I have an issue with my device in April, I won't be able to come to the uS before summer for example. So I wanted to extend my warranty to two years to cover everything.
I was planning to get the iPhone tomorrow, then Apple Care + by the start of October, but Apple website said that an expert will need to investigate it first to make sure it has no damage. Does this mean I have to pay a visit to the store, and since I can't I will have to order it the same time with the device?
Thanks in advance.
