Seems like a good deal for anyone whose iPad is about to come to the end of its first year warranty. There were three of these in the York store. Usually RRP is £49.99.

This is non-closing store. Looks like they selling out all apple products (iPads long gone)

you have to use it before your original warranty runs out. You still have close to a year to do that. If you manage to get one of these it will be cheap

You get a two year warranty with an iPad:

Thanks, can i buy it now and use when ipad will run out of warranty

You have to use it before your original warranty expires.
Also the 2 year is inclusive of the original 1 year warranty taking it to 2 years.

What more any ipads bought from HMV does not have guarantee accepted by Apple so this is only option to have a REAL GUARANTEE .

Not sure if that is true. If your iPad doesn't have any warranty in their system this wouldn't work either. Best to check first on the warranty checker website.

This can only be used if you have apple warranty running, if you are saying they don't, then this would not work

I'm sorry, but which point of my answer makes you ask this question?!

No he's asking when his warranty has run out and he can no longer use this, can he use it then?

And here I thought that Apple had stopped selling these throughout Europe.

Applecare needs to be activated within 1st and only year of you warranty. That will extend the original warranty to 2 years.

Not the same thing:

1 Years Apple Warranty: Defects arising after customer takes delivery

The Sales of Goods Act covers you beyond a year anyway.

While this applecare might make a return or repair process easier, it's nothing than can't be obtained through your consumer rights, and therefore seems expensive, even at £25.

They don't bend the law...it simply is the law. Also EU law provides a minimum of 2 years as per the directive, however, UK law goes above and beyond that and the limitation period under a simple contract is 6 years. (under SoGA)

dont think thats from the manufacturer,
as you have entered into a contract with the reseller
as it states comes with 1 year manufacturers warranty
so unless the product was bought from the apple store or apple online
then you would have to go to the place you purchased it, I.E. tescos, currys etc....

Dam!! Need to go to HMV

If you purchased with a CC you can go them instead as per your rights under the CCA.

so much for a premium product that they only give you a joke 1 year warranty...pretty sure samsung are 2 years

if you buy an ipad get it from john lewis

The table bends nothing and is spot on. The additional statutory protection (actually upto 6 years in the UK, if you use your SOGA rights instead) places the onus on the buyer to prove the defect was inherent after 6 months (responsibility is on the seller prior to that, but rarely relevant for new products as most come with a 1 year warranty) and any burden of repair/compensation is placed upon the retailer/seller not the manufacturer.

Perhaps you can clarify what they have "bent". In fact many manufacturers aren't open enough to have a web page detailing any of your statutory rights on their website. Often you will just see a clause such as "does not affect your statutory rights" buried within a set of terms which have no relevance or applicability since your statutory rights override them

They don't for their TVs for example,therefore I doubt the length of warranty offered is solely based on the manufacturers confidence in their product. IMO its largely down to commercial impact, where Samsung have a relatively dominant position (TVs) they don't offer an additional year, where they have a strong competitor taking market share due to other factors they offer it to make their products look more appealing.

They have that page because they were fined €900,000 for not being clear on the standard protections.

bbc.co.uk/new…651

And I think the poster you quoted is saying they're bending the rules probably because the use of language could be slightly misleading.

The page gives the impression that you can only claim under the standard EU rules if the fault was there when you first opened the packaging and that if something developed a fault 16 months later from just standard use (ie. not your own fault) you would only be covered if you had the extended plan, but this is not true as you've just explained, prove it was a defect with the product from new and you're entitled to a fix.

I work for Apple so just to clarify what they do and do not cover.

One year warranty only without AppleCare and it doesn't matter where you buy it from

Does this include cover for apple bringing out yet a newer model and stopping updates hence forcing you to buy a new model as 2 years cover seems a bit too long before they force you in to buying an updated version and stop doing updates for old models...

Only morons buy warranty.

Exactly, they have worded it in a way that makes you buy their extended warranty when you may actually not need it, or at least it doesn't give you the right information for you to make an informed decision. But this is typical Apple, I remember the EU directive that forced phone manufacturers to use micro-USB connectors to help with electronic waste, and Apple "bent" that rule by supplying an adapter (at a premium price of course) that converted its lightning connector to micro-USB.

But anyways, I guess if you are definitely after AppleCare, this is a hot deal indeed.

That's an Italian ruling, it wouldn't force them to place that link on their UK site. And as I said previously very few manufacturers/retailers (in fact none that I can think of right now) go further, in fact many have far more dubious practices in this area (as alluded to in my previous post).

I guess the wording could be better, they probably should use the word inherent. But the links to the relevant legislation are provided on the same page and the footnotes do convey the gist of the legislation. The issue is if you have a dislike for them it s easy to read any wording they use as misleading or a deliberate attempt at obfuscation. Quote the legislation directly and its not using plain English, try to simplify the meaning of the legislation and you're bound to lose some meaning leaving yourself open to claims you're misleading people.

What would you have put in that box?

hmv out of administration....good?

AppleCare is also about support, and my parents have used it a lot of times for the phone support and found them to be fantastic. The express replacement for any hardware issues in the first 2 years is as important as a "warranty" is to the individual, but no one has yet mentioned the support which is without doubt the best manufacturer support I have used.

After researching I don't see the point of applecare. All you get on top of the default EU consumer warranty is the ability to take it into an apple store after the first year. From what I've heard though it's hit or miss whether or not Apple will do anything since there are so many sensors in their devices even leaving an iphone in a room with a lot of steam (a bathroom whilst you're running a hot bath for example) it will trip the water damage sensor and it will void your warranty (normal or applecare). Dealing with the store you bought it from - 9 times out of 10 - they won't check this kind of thing. (unfortunately there is no applecare+ in the UK so applecare doesn't protect against any kind of accidental damage)

So with apple care the only difference is you deal with Apple (who have better ability to do tests on the device to determine warranty status) instead of the seller.
