Apple Had Doubled Warranty Length in Australia


Apple doesn’t want you to know about it, but we’re telling you anyway: Reports from AppleInsider this morning say that the standard AppleCare warranty was extended to two years in Australia.

The news here, though, comes from The Sydney Morning Herald, who has obtained an Apple email that told employees not to notify customers of this change.

While 12 months has been the standard warranty for Apple products in the states, the Australian Consumer Law was passed in January of 2011 and requires companies to provide warranties of “reasonable” length. Apple has apparently done so, but for business purposes or otherwise, has elected not to educate its customers about the change.

Do we have any Australian owners of Apple products that didn’t know this?
