With the holiday season about to go into full-loose Bozo-mode, it’s probably a good time to let everyone know that Apple’s usual extended holiday return policy is now in effect for most purchases from Apple, both in-store and online, in the U.S., Canada, and a number of other countries.
Most products and accessories purchased between November 1 and December 25 of this year are eligible for return until January 8, 2016, including the new Apple TV, Apple Watch, iPad Pro, iPhones, Macs and more. See a list of ineligible items.
Opened Apple products can be returned prior to the return date, but must be undamaged, and include all original packaging and accompanying items in the box. This includes charging cables, wall chargers, and so on.
When making an in-store purchase at an Apple retail location, be sure to ask for both printed and emailed receipts for your purchase. The printed receipt should show the return date for each product purchased.
The return cutoff date should also be listed on the emailed receipts, and under the Account section on the Apple Online Store. If a product is purchased with Personal Pickup, a return date may not be listed, it is recommended you contact Apple in that case.
While the holiday return policy has not yet been posted online, and may not be available everywhere, MacRumors did confirm that an iPad Pro and Magic Keyboard that were purchased on November 12 was eligible for return until January 8, 2016.
