In order to return your product in-store, please do as I say. The first step you need to do is to head to an apple store near your. This is the link where you can find the nearest Apple store www.applestorelocator.com. Once you find the store, please head to it and enter it. Once there, you can go to the returns center and then ask them to accept your returns. There will probably be an Apple specialist nearby, who will help you in returning your product. Your refund will be processed at the same time.
Therefore this is how you can return your product in-store. Read on to know more about how you can return your product through the mail.
Return Through the Mail
The first thing that you need to do here is to head to this link www.appleorderstatus.com. Once you are there, you will need to login. You need to fill in the box your order number and your email address. It will look something like this.
Once you fill in this, you will be able to sign into your account. Then select your item and head to the ‘start a return link’. From there, click on ‘get started’ and finally on ‘initiate your return’ on the next page. Then finally you will need to return your return label in order to make sure you are able to return your product. Once you print the return label, please read the instructions too. In case you are returning computers, it is strongly advised to use the original packaging.
You can either schedule a pickup with the carrier or drop off the package at any of the carrier’s locations. Hence this was how you can return your product through the mail. The nest paragraph is about the Apple Refund Policy. Then it is the Apple Exchange Policy. Please make sure you go through them all.
Apple Refund Policy
The Apple Refund Policy states that your refund will be initiated as soon as they receive your return. In case you have cancelled a pickup item and then you were also billed for it, Apple will refund you once you give them your cancellation request.
Now the case for purchasing products from Apple online, that is from their official website is a little different. Apple will refund you in the form of an Apple Gift Card on products that you purchase from Apple online through their website. To understand more on the same, you can visit the page on the Samsung Return Policy and the Homedepot Return Policy as well.
Apple Exchange Policy
In case you have purchased an item from Apple in the United States of America, you can return it in any of the Apple stores in the United States of America. It may happen though that you are unable to get what you wanted due to a lack of stock in the store. Therefore I advise you to call and check the availability of the product that you want in their store before you head to exchange your product.
Please note that it may happen that your exchange might be denied for some special products. For eg, Personalized items and custom-configured Macs may not be eligible for exchange at an Apple Store. Also, as I said, if the products are purchased from the Apple retail stores, you will need to follow the exchange policy of that particular store.
