This is how it used to be, before Apple’s bean counters decided to implement their latest anti-customer policy—very unfair and a very ugly policy that affected me and my kids with respect to our computers. This, after being an Apple customer since 1984. Shame on you, Apple.
But the best way to judge mistakes is seeing whether or how they are corrected/
Seems like Apple finally came to its senses, but it remains outrageous to pay a super premium price for a pathetic 1-year warranty, even for high-end professional products.
OWC, for example, offers 3-year and 5-year warranties on their excellent products for Mac and PC, as do companies like NEC on the wide gamut displays.
Apple Gives Users More Time to Buy AppleCare After Sales Slow
August 17, 2020
Apple Inc. on Monday told retail and customer-support employees that the company is expanding the time period when customers can subscribe to its AppleCare+ service.
Consumers currently have a chance to sign up to the warranty-and-support program within 60 days of buying an Apple product. This subscription window is increasing to up to a year now in the U.S. and Canada.
...The updated program requires a user to have their device screened by an Apple retail employee to make sure it is not damaged before they can buy the plan.
