Apple Products and Australian Consumer Law
Apple goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under Australian consumer law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.
Australian Consumer Law and Warranties
Apple may choose to offer you a warranty against defects, on top of your consumer guarantees. This warranty is a promise that if goods or services provided (or part of them) are defective, they will provide a remedy.
This type of warranty usually comes with a time limit, usually 12 months.
Warranties are separate from your automatic consumer guarantees, which apply regardless of any warranties suppliers sell or give to you. This means consumer guarantees may continue to apply after the time period for the warranty has expired.
Consumer Law guarantees may extend to 2 years on iOS and personal devices and to 3 years on desktop and laptop computers.
