Apple apologizes for Chinese warranty issues with letter from CEO Tim Cook
exchanging a bad unit for a refurbished model after the first 15 days had expired. Once the consumer receives the device with the new parts, or a brand new unit, the one-year warranty restarts according to the Three Guarantees law.
On Apple's web site in the country is the manufacturer's restated warranty and repair policy statement which includes the two-years of warranty on key parts for the Apple iPad while only one year is given for batteries and accessories for the slate. Apple also said that it will provide more supervision and training for supervision and training for Apple Authorized Service Providers and Chinese consumers now have a direct online feedback link to get in touch with Apple.
We know that Tim Cook has high hopes for China and expects the country to eventually be Apple's top market. Hopefully for Apple, this relatively quick action and its bowing to local customs will get Chinese consumers back on its side.
