Apple Australia: Two Year AppleCare Now Standard

Following years of litigation, Apple extended standard AppleCare warranties from one to two years. Now, the company has done the same in Australia…

Following years of litigation, fines and controversy, Apple has extended standard product warranties from one to two years in most if not all European Union member countries. Now, the company has quietly increased AppleCare warranties in Australia from 12 to 24 months, as well

MacTalk Australia reports that Apple Australia has extended standard one-year warranties to two years.

Apple Australia have quietly changed the way it will be treating iPhone, iPad and Mac repairs at its Genius bars and Authorised Apple Repair Centers. Apple are introducing a “variable warranty” to its main line of products, which effectively extends the warranty of Apple products to 24 months, to bring it in line with Australian Consumer Law.

That said, left unanswered is the question of how Australian customers who purchased extended AppleCare warranties will be compensated, if at all.

And, who doesn’t believe Apple should extend default AppleCare warranties to two years? Yes, the average Mac, iPad, iPhone and iPod lasts longer than a year, but that’s not a guaranty and such “generosity” would be more than welcomed by Apple’s vocally loyal customers…

What’s your take?
