T-Mobile added AppleCare to its $12-a-month device insurance plans at no additional cost.

The nation’s third-largest mobile carrier said users who buy a new iPhone or iPad are now covered under AppleCare if they also subscribe to T-Mobile’s Jump or Premium Device Protection offerings.

“Both T-Mobile’s Premium Device Protection (previously called Premium Handset Protection) and JUMP! with Premium Device Protection will now include AppleCare Services for eligible Un-carrier customers who recently purchased a new device,” the carrier said in a press release. “For just $12 a month, iPhone and iPad users can get complete peace of mind with protection from loss, theft or accidental damage, hardware coverage, the security features of Lookout Mobile Security® Premium—and now, award-winning AppleCare Services.”
