With all those killer discounts on Apple devices, it really is the time of the year to empty your wallets. This is an annual thing that the Cupertino-based company does and has been pretty well received over the years. Currently, Apple’s annual extended return policy for the holiday season is now in effect. At least on the company’s online store and at retail stores in the U.S., and U.K.. Also in Australia, Canada, Germany, Sweden and other countries.

According to the website, most products and accessories purchased between November 1 and December 25 of this year are eligible for return until January 8, 2016. The devices include the new Apple TV, Apple Watch, iPad Pro, iPhones, Macs and more.

According To Apple’s Website

“You have 14 calendar days to return an item from the date you received it. Only items that have been purchased directly from Apple are covered by this policy. Either purchased online or at a Retail Store can be returned to Apple. Products purchased through other retailers must be returned in accordance with their respective returns and refunds policy.”

Please ensure that the item you’re returning is repackaged. Include all the cords, adapters, and documentation that were included in the original package when you received it.


There are a few things you can’t return. It includes opened software, electronic software downloads from the App Store. Also, Apple Store gift cards and Apple Developer products are excluded from the return policy as is mentioned in detail on the website.

So it’s probably a good time to head on over to the nearest Apple retailer. It’s time to try out that new Apple device you’ve had your eyes on for the past the year.
