In Australia, there is a new regulation for add-on insurance products commencing on 5 October 2021. The Deferred Sales Model for Add-on Insurance regulation prohibits sales of add-on insurance within the first 4 days of a customer purchasing a principal product such as a notebook or tablet device. The model requires a clear four-day pause between when a customer enters a commitment to acquire a principal product or service and when they are offered or sold an add-on insurance product. More information can be found by following the link Regulatory Guide RG 275 The deferred sales model for add-on insurance (asic.gov.au). Also we are currently unable to sell AppleCare+Winthrop Australia will automatically send you an email after this period to enable you to purchase accidental damage, theft, or extended warranty should you wish to.
As of the 5th of October we are no longer able to sell AppleCare+. You can purchase AppleCare+ directly on your device via the settings menu or on the Apple website.

You can say “no” to being sold this insurance. It is not compulsory. If you are unsure, consider your situation and ask yourself:
Do I need and understand the insurance?
Could I get a better deal somewhere else?
