As per usual, Apple’s extended holiday return policy begins today in the United States and in several other countries.
Most products and accessories purchased from the Apple Online Store and Apple retail locations between November 10 and December 25, 2016 will be eligible for return up until January 8, 2017 in the United States, Australia, Canada, and a few other regions, or until January 20, 2017 in most European countries including France, Germany, and the United Kingdom.
Apple products eligible for return include the iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, and Apple TV, among other things. Items that aren’t eligible for return include Apple or iTunes gift cards, and opened software. Apple products can be opened and used prior to the return date, but must be returned undamaged and with its original packaging.
It’s recommended that you ask for both a printed and emailed copy of your receipt when making a purchase at an Apple retail location as both the emailed and printed copies will indicate the return date for each product that was purchased.
All purchases made before today or after December 25 are subject to Apple’s typical 14-day return policy.
