Apple’s Standard Return Policy

Apple’s standard return policy states that you have 14 days to return an Apple product from the day you bought it. But that only applies to purchases made from Apple online or at an Apple Store. If you purchased an Apple product through another retailer, returns must be done according to that retailer’s policy.

A few exceptions apply, however. You can’t return:

  • Opened software
  • Electronic software downloads
  • Software upgrades
  • Apple Store gift cards
  • Apple developer products
  • Apple print products

For gift returns, you must provide a product serial number or order number.
