    Whats Apple’s Return policy if I buy the 16GB Wifi model now and want to exchange within a few days ?

  • Alex Crocker

    Well, don’t open it if you’re planning on returning it!

  • lkahney

    You can return anything within 14 days for a full refund, no questions asked — as long as you don’t open it.

    If you do open it, you still have 14 days to return it. But it must be in perfect condition, have the full packaging, and apple will charge a 10% restocking fee, which could be as high as $80 for the high-end models.

    Here’s Apple’s return policy in detail:

    Fix the Charleston store pic caption. We haven’t called the city “Charles Towne” since colonial times.

    apple is no longer charging restocking fees as long as it is returned under 14 days.
