Apple Australia Makes 24 Month Warranties Official

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has accepted a court enforceable undertaking from Apple Pty Limited (Apple) following an investigation into Apple’s consumer guarantees policies and practices, and representations about consumers’ rights under the Australian Consumer Law (ACL)…

In the undertaking Apple has publicly acknowledged that, without limiting consumers’ rights, Apple will provide its own remedies equivalent to those remedies in the consumer guarantee provisions of the ACL at any time within 24 months of the date of purchase.

To avoid any doubt, Apple has also acknowledged that the Australian Consumer Law may provide for remedies beyond 24 months for a number of its products.

Apple Australia quietly extended the warranty on all iPads, iPhones and Macs back in March, but did not acknowledge the change publicly. Now they’ve made it official, albeit with a little nudge from the ACCC.
