Apple changes the iPhone return window from 30 to 14 calendar days
According to a change in Apple's Standard Return Policy, from tomorrow onwards users will have only 14 calendar days to return an iPhone without a reason, regardless if it was bought from an Apple Store or online. This change equalizes the return policies of Apple and its carrier partners, as well as the company's other products. Up until now, the period for returning an Apple smartphone and receiving a refund was 30 days.

The return policy of Apple now clearly states that "you may return your undamaged iPhone with its included accessories within 14 days of purchase for a full refund". However, the company also notes that "returning your iPhone may not automatically cancel or reset your wireless account; you are responsible for your wireless service agreement and for any applicable fees associated with your wireless account".

Heck, by then you'll know if you like it, or not.

Yeah and that is the standard return policy for a lot of places now, wireless carriers, best buy, walmart, etc. A lot of places are putting a 14 day return policy on electronics now.

Yea, there are people here in the UK abusing the 30 day return policy. Apple delivers free to their house in London and they return it within 30 days and Apple picks it up for free from their house as well. I know a neighbour who has repeated this BS for 2 years now.

Yeah, I was wondering about that too.

It's actually to fill in space because the article itself is like 2 very small paragraphs. If you remove the pictures, you get left with a very bare looking page.

That doesn't answer his question, Finalflash. He's simply saying why is there a need for 36 photos. Which I was wondering the same thing. You make a good point too, but why not just a few photos, instead of 36? Not a big deal, but all of those pics are unnecessary; especially for a phone that came out months ago.

I think the number is just laziness, it is probably a saved slide show of iPhone photos they just linked. It could be a fluff piece ad for Apple but I will give benefit of doubt this time. I think seeing all those photos pretty much reminds me of why I don't want it instead and likewise, don't think anyone else is falling it.

I don't know if it was laziness. Wouldn't it just be easier to put a single picture of an iPhone there?

For the record, I don't think it's a fluff piece for Apple either, but maybe there's some ad click thing behind it?

Most likely it's just a repost imbedding of iPhone content, without any motive or insinuations other than perhaps needing something else than a small article.

Subsidized iPhone 6's may cost more, sapphire glass less durable than gorilla glass, iOS update will allow full screen ads, Apple ads losing their appeal, return window cut in half for iPhones... Either Phone Arena is trolling with all their recent Apple articles or Apple really is going down hill.

The only people really saying sapphire glass is less durable than Gorilla Glass are. . . the people that make Gorilla Glass, big surprise. Fullscreen ads aren't new, they're already common with a lot of apps, like Pandora. And 14 days is already the return window with pretty much every US carrier. Doesn't sound like anything going downhill to me.

They have the video to prove it you know. Whether or not that is true, time will tell.

Apple of course doesn't even allow corning to tell people that their glass is on the iphone, that should tell you enough.
