If your device is replaced due to theft or exchanged under an insurance program within 6 months of purchase, we'll register your new device. This is a free service for those who purchased the Premium and Ultimate packages.
Apple can revoke certificates at any time and for any reason. While the Plus package is only eligible for replacement in the first 90 days, the Premium and Ultimate packages remains eligible for replacement for an entire year. Simply look up your order and download a replacement certificate. Completely free and automatic.
