Warranty, Who and What's Covered.

Post by iJasonTATE on Thu Aug 18, 2011 8:22 pm

​Two Different Warranties:
When you purchase your Apple device, it is automatically covered under a 1-year limited warranty, at no cost to you. This includes purchasing the device from Amazon, Best Buy, or any other Apple authorized reseller. If you purchased a used iPod, this warranty still applies if it is within 1-year from original purchase. As stated, this warranty is limited. There are many limitations to the warranty and in most cases, your issue may not be covered. This thread will explain what is and what isn't covered.

A second warranty policy that Apple provides is called Apple Care. This policy extends your warranty coverage to 2 years from the original purchase date of the device. You must purchase this plan while you are still within your 1-year limited warranty period. For example, an iPhone purchased on Jan 1, 2011 is eligible for Apple Care until Jan 1, 2012. After this time, you may no longer purchase Apple Care for your device. This plan costs $59 for the iPod touch, $69 for the iPhone, and $99 for the iPad (all prices are in USD and accurate as of Dec 12, 2010). It's important to note that Apple Care doesn't provide much more coverage than the 1-year limited warranty but rather extends it an additional year.

Q: Is warranty international? A: Yes.
Q: Dead pixels? A: Check with a Genius Bar employee.
Q: My device got wet in a spill, pool, toilet, sink, etc. Am I covered? A: No.
Q: I dropped my device. Am I covered? A: No.
Q: My device is all scratched. Can I get it replaced/fixed? A: No.
Q: I bought my device off somebody. Am I covered? A: If it is still within the warranty period, yes.
Q: I bought my device at...? A: Yes, you're device is still covered by Apple's standard 1-year warranty and is eligible for Apple Care coverage. Here's some of the well known retailers (our 'trusted list'):
Apple Online & Retail Stores
iPhone carriers: AT&T, O2, Bell, Vodafone, Rogers, Orange, T-Mobile, Telus, Fido, etc.
Best Buy, Future Shop, other large electronic retailers
