Awful and unsympathetic online chat experience
Chat was with Caelum. Terribly patronising and ver unsympathetic. Didn't explain coherently what the options for me were. Took forever to type responses. Shameful customer service. Didn't even acknowledge the challenging circumstances of Covid-19 in making in-store purchases.
Would also add that you need to make it clear that Apple Store gift cards CAN NOT be used to purchase App Store cards in big BOLD letters on the Apple Store cards. It's ridiculous that I can't transfer one line of credit to a different platform within the same billion dollar corporation that claims to pride itself on customer/user experience.
Absolutely shameful. Will post this review on across social media as others need to know.
Product offers worthless
Purchased multiple apple TVs... with an offer of free 12 months apple TV- all links not working
Called & would not honour offer.. deceptive and bait advertising to purchase product if you ask me= Very Poor Apple ..shame on you !

Absolutely terrible service. Trying to get rid of the customer for every price
My iPhone XS MAX started playing up. For no obvious reason, the display would freeze and not respond to any touch input. I contacted the Apple support per chat and was offered to take the phone to the Apple store for a check-up. The screen was in good physical condition, the back, however, had a crack in it.
After waiting a bit i was greeted by an Apple employee. She ran the diagnostics and told me that there were no faults found. She offered me a solution to do a software update to the same software i have had on my phone or to get the phone ...repaired. For a ridiculous amount of $880 and i believe that was even before tax. Or i should upgrade my plan with Vodafone and get a new phone from them. Despite the fact that my phone was only about 6 months old. She tried everything besides offering a service through Apple. She insisted that i can't get the phone repaired under warranty because of the damage on the back of the phone. After a few minutes of discussion with her, i asked her nicely that she gives me in writing that Apple refuses to honor the warranty just because the back was cracked. She said no problem and went to the back of the store. A few minutes later she came back but without the paperwork, i asked for. Instead, she asked if she could take my phone with her for a few minutes which i agreed to. Again a few minutes later she came back and said that the display will get repaired under warranty and told me to be back in about 40 minutes. I returned to the store at the time she told me to and my phone was already waiting repaired for me. It is disgusting to see that Apple tries everything possible to send away customers with legit warranty claims. It is disgusting that Apple tries to send customers to their telecom providers just so they don't have to deal with it. I have heard of some may people lately making similar experiences and that Apple tries everything to avoid repairs that are obviously covered by warranty. At such a premium price we should be allowed to hope for half-decent service.
Long wait for lousy service
Had to book an appointment for a consultation with a tech person to basically be told the they know the iPhone 7 is a piece of junk but it’s not their problem.
Not so smart
It’s some times difficult to find help, however once you do, things get easy and smooth. Apple warranty is great, no fuss of phone is under warranty you are looked after.
Hard to discuss false charge
I was charged $400 on my credit card. I am prepared to say that Apple were not responsible for this, but it took about four hours on the telephone for them to clear the matter up. I am convinced that Apple were not responsible for this, and my bank's fraud squad are looking into it. I just feel that it could have been settled in 15 minutes.
Apple needs to be more proactive, take ownership and actually help.
Apple Store Carindale QLD extremely unhelpful - After 40 mins of troubleshooting online, after 1 hour of troubleshooting instore. I’m told the products (AirPods gen 1 and EarPods) are fake. Complaint case number; 101030630273. Updates to come.
Carindale Store: [name removed] first representative - absolutely fantastic, listened and did what she could. I escalated to [name removed] “manager” - hopeless, no empathy, didn’t take any responsibility, Did not try and assist just pushed back - last words from [name removed] “good luck”

Excellent and fast service
Always busy but quick to get served. It’s like Disney land when you in. Had a watch out if warranty but Apple helped in getting the issue sorted. Was super fast and very friendly
So 3750 dollars later apple tech today tells me device is not fit for purpose so why sell them if a product is a few months out of warranty how is it not fit for purpose and no i do not want to buy newest gadget just a reliable product obviously something apple can not give
MACS 2019 is scam
Scam alert!! Macs alert!! MAC Display models don't have the same software as the original products. In simple words, they showcase Apples but sell oranges. Really disappointed , my MacBook Pro is overheating but they refused to fix it as they were unable to detect it. Poor Customer service, Please don't get ripped off, Its a BIG BIG SCAM !!
Poor service for a premium product
Apple directs you to perform self diagnostic checks before bringing your device in for check/repairs. Even when you know what is wrong you still need to wait days for a booking to talk about it! What a joke. The arrogance is palpable.
Software is not good last calls show up 2 days later. Swipes only work occasionally. Not happy. the same with my mackbook pro. Most apps not compatible... Totally over rated
The best Mac ever
On Tuesday 28th January 2020 I got a iMac 21.5" 2012 as a replacement for my MacBook Pro 15" 2012 since they came and took it on Monday night and since I put Windows 10 on it wasn't working so they couldn't fix it.
Beware of how Apple invoice you for your purchases.
If you buy with a "free" promotion item they take the value of the promotion item off the value of your item. Which means if you have it insured, want to claim it on your tax, or salary sacrifice the item, you cannot claim for the actual value only the value on the invoice. Apple REFUSE to show the items correctly. Customer service in Australia refer this to Singapore office, where the representatives are happy to give a lecture on processes but not listen to the needs of the customer. I have referred this matter to the department of Fair Trading.
Disappointing experience with Apple support team
I need to unlocked my phone, sent proof of purchase but they need more documents but it’s unclear what they need & when I called no one can helped and rude.
Apple devices are not reliable and their warranty service is horrible! Buggy Software
I use iPhone XS Max and have updated the phone to IOS13 and since then having continuous battery issue. Apple refused to replace the warranty even though the phone is under warranty. Went to store and spoke to representative, and their false claims.
They have a very bad and rude support service. Phone does not even last half a day and have to keep connecting to charger. It doesn't even charges the phone properly. Apple reps says it's normal.
They used to have a great service but now it is the worst experience. Was a big fan of Apple products ...

Refuse to replace faulty product.
Never by an ipod from Apple online. I bought an ipod from them six months ago that is riddled with faults. Support refuses outright to replace it and insists on spending hours with me trying to get my faulty ipod to do what it was supposed to do. I have been through this process three times now as Apple offers no other form of product support.
Apple devices are not reliable any more and their warranty service is terrible!
They do bad warranty service. They tell it is done and fixed but do not even spend a minute to switch a device on and check if an issue is really fixed. Apple mac books cost as a plane but reliable as a china calculator. Do not buy it!
Half a year ago I bought a new 2019 macbook pro 13inc. During this period there were some issues like screen flickering a few times per day or hangings on. This is the first apple mac book in my life and I did not expect any magic from it to work without any problems and did not pay any real attention on it.
Excellent customer service
Apple store Miranda is a great store with efficient customer service! Staff are very friendly and ensure to provide excellent and honest advice. Highly recommend Apple at Miranda! Well done!
Apple Store - Highpoint Melb. Zero customer after sales customer service
Purchased and installed Screen cover for iPhone. Within 2 weeks the screen snapped in half even though I have a flip phone case and phone wasn’t dropped. Rang store & was advised by I think name Adriana? There’s nothing they can do and as far as she’s concerned... the screen did its job.
I proceeded to contact the manufacturer and was told their screens have 2 yr warranty and they have offered me a replacement.
Thanks for your appalling customer service Apple Highpoint!!!!

Questions & Answers
where can I buy a refurbished iphone in Australia zipp code 3500?When I tried to buy one online my zipp code was declared invalid [email removed] I have all Apple products.
Why won't my iPad Pro work after a software upgrade? The screen is blank and there is no sign of life after trying to restart it multiple times by pressing the power button, etc. I totally blame the software upgrade for this situation! Is this Apple's way of forcing me to replace what was a perfectly functioning iPad? I'm not impressed.
Why don’t your products last ver long ?
I can only speak from my experience,but apart from having problems with my iPhone X I still have my iPhone 4s,5s and 6s and they are all still working.
I bought my iPad mini in 2014, the iPad is now quite old. It did last quite a while (until 2019). On the other hand, my newer iPad should last longer.
