It seems that there is a new change introduced in Apple’s Standard Return Policy which will kick in from tomorrow onwards, as users will only have a 14 calendar day time window to return their recently purchased iPhone without having to give a reason, never mind if it was purchased directly from an Apple Store or via the online route. This particular amendment would place it on par with the return policies of Apple as well as its carrier partners, in addition to the rest of the products from Cupertino.
At this point in time, however, the window period for one to returning an Apple smartphone and picking up a refund stands at 30 days. The return policy of Apple has been amended to state clearly that “you may return your undamaged iPhone with its included accessories within 14 days of purchase for a full refund”. That sounds great, but Apple’s legal eagles have also done their homework to note that “returning your iPhone may not automatically cancel or reset your wireless account; you are responsible for your wireless service agreement and for any applicable fees associated with your wireless account”.
You can check out a screenshot of the updated return policy below, and let us know what you think about this move by Apple.
