As well as being the time of year when clocks are turned back an hour, it’s also the perfect time to buy. As everyone knows, we are approaching Black Friday 2023 and companies are working specifically with new initiatives. In reality, the month of November is also the time of year in which Apple announces the extension of returns during the Christmas holidays.
Normally users have a maximum 14 days useful for returning a product purchased to Apple, whether online or at Apple Stores. The returns and refunds support page now states that products received between November 3 and December 25, 2023 can be returned untilJanuary 8, 2024.
This initiative is practically similar to the one that Amazon adopts every year, giving its public practically three months to make the return.
Apple increases the return period close to the Christmas holidays, especially for Europe
There are obviously important restrictions that affect some devices. Apple specifies that every iPhone purchased with a contract with a telephone operator will not be eligible for this type of refund.
Once the period has passed, and therefore passed December 25th, all products purchased will be subject to the usual return policy. Clearly, all returns are to be excluded from this extension third-party sellersas the Cupertino giant restricts everything to purchases on the Apple Store both online and physical.
Clearly the suitable products are those that everyone knows, starting from iPhones up to iPads, Apple Watch, AirPods, MacBooks and so on. In reality, the softwareas long as they have not been installed on any computer.
Europetogether with Spain, Mexico and Japan will be able to benefit from a further extension until 20 th January 2024. In short, there will be no problem with Christmas gifts: if they don’t like them, the recipients will have time to return them.
