A leaked AppleCare+ document reveals that Apple plans to tweak the program for international travelers later this week. The changes will allow iPhone 5 owners who travel out of the country in which they purchased their phone to receive replacement devices from international Apple retail stores and authorized repair centers.

The updated policy covers customers traveling to Brazil, China, India, Korea, the Middle East, Russia, Taiwan, Turkey, the United States Canada, and more. A chart indicates which countries are able to replace specific versions of the iPhone 5 (GSM, CDMA, etc.). For example, only the version with the model number A1428 can be serviced in Brazil, while China can only replace the A1429, A1429 (MM), and A1442 variations.

If you’re interested in learning where your iPhone 5 can be serviced while traveling, the full document is available below. The changes to the program go into effect on September 27th.

Thanks, Sonny!
