Worst customer service. A company with no moral fiber. Disgraceful conduct, deceitful and dishonest. Advisors that promised to amend an issue, then changed their mind with no communication and when I called to enquire why, simply hung up on me.

Apple Online will take your money and make you wait for your product
On the 27th May we ordered and paid for a pack of four air-tags online to pick up at the Booragoon Garden City store. Got a notification that apple will email me when the air tags are ready. I waited a week and no notification came. My friends visited the store and purchased air tags and told me they had plenty of them in stock. On the 3rd June I visited the store and asked if my order was ready, the apple staff member told me they had no air tags is stock and I will get a notification email when they are ready. I then approached another staff...member and asked if I can purchase some air tags. He said yes they have plenty in stock so I paid for a four pack and left. I then went home and cancelled my online order. Moral of my story - don’t waste your time ordering and paying for products through the Apple Online Store. They will take your money, make you wait for the product and the physical store staff will lie to you about stock availability. Not good enough Apple!
Essentially told I wasn’t required as a customer anymore. Call staff were great but enacting a business directive.
I requested service of an Apple product.
A product that should have been easily repairable.
Told to buy new product.
Worst customer service
Incompetent or lazy perhaps. Non existent customer service. Zero effort to help, wonder what is the point of having customer service in place...
Overcharge developers and then you take our apps down in a criminal manner
Apple needs to be sued for taking down apps from developers who are still paying the ridiculous fees. All while Apple allows criminal acts to take place on other apps (but they turn their head).
Trade In Scam
Apple offered $175 trade in on an iPad Air 2.
On review by the receiving agent $40 was offered.
The reason given ..... a bent screen.
The iPad was in perfect condition.
Trade ins offered by Apple are a complete scam.
Apple are online predators
The Apple Store preys on children's desire to be accepted and 'cool' in the online world. Their in-game marketing is light years ahead of children's thinking and decision-making. My son made in-game purchases for gems, or such rubbish, which I attempted to reverse the same day. Apple resolutely refused to refund the purchase. They did not become one of the world's richest company by being decent. They are smarter than your kids. They prey on their vulnerabilities. They do not refund. They are evil.
In app purchases
I downloaded a free app for my son, however, it had in-app purchases which he accidentally clicked and bought. I rang apple store, but after spending 1 hour on the phone the customer service person couldn’t find my apple id. He told me what reason to select from the dropdown box and submit. It got declined the next day. When I rang customer service to put a complaint, they couldn’t find my record. Shame on you Apple! Some of your online staff are STUPID!
Shipping and complaint handling
Bought apple product online , but was shipped somewhere else , I had to follow back myself and had to go to the depot to collect myself instead of rescheduling it, seems like downfall of apple has begun
Do Not buy Engraved Devices from Apple online store.
I Have ordered an Ipad with free engraving on 16/12/20. The apple online store estimated it would arrive on 8/1/21. I was fine with all of that, comes the 11/1/21 I called tracked the package is still stuck in china as per the tracking. I lodged a case with TNT apple's courier and they could find out where the package is. In the meantime, Apple tells me it is stuck at customs. I have lodged an investigation with apple and apparently, they will get back to me. Unfortunately, no one from apple and TNT got back to me I am always chasing them. They...gave $150 off the price but it does not change the fact that no one knows where it is and when will get to Australia. The devices is need to the school year which I am sure it wont be here by then. There is no one to handle real customer issues both organisations that actually helps. There isn't even a complaint manager to handle my query.
After filling up my details and iPhone details , my preference on date and appointment time for collecting my order was changed to a post office.
This is the second time I spent too long time trying to buy a new phone.
There is no an email address to reply.
Very disappointing, especially for seniors that need a bit of support

Buyer beware they take thousands more than purchase price from your account after purchase!
Purchased 2 new iPhones and apple care $4500 online. $4500 taken from our account. Two days later apple tried to take just over $1000 on top of that, it rejected due to insufficient funds and I didn’t realise til they debited a further $2228 a few days later which went through but left us with no funds over the weekend. Apple took nearly $7000 for a $4500 purchase from our account and then when we complained to them the staff had no manager available to resolve the issue. An email was received the next day saying they were intending to take a f...urther $1700 and denying taking the $4500 to start with. We write a reply demanding a phone conversation, they called and left no message and then took another $2300 from our account before retuning the original $4500. Disgusting! Don’t trust them with your credit card details.
Refuse to buy online again! Change the courier!!
Awful courier service TNT so many complaints made about their delivery service yet apple still uses them. Im that close to asking for a refund and cancelling the order! Made to wait and find time off to sit at home and wait for my iphone! Hard to cover my shift at work and it should have been delivered Last Friday. Its now tuesday afternoon!
Charged for a service I didn’t order
Got a free trial to drop box , but didn’t use it
Wasn’t aware you have 20 days to opt out.
Have been paying $18.49 per month for the last 14 months. Contacted Apple and they said they can only refund the last 2 months,
Be very careful with free trials this is fraudulent
Terrible!! Online iPhone 11 Purchase without included headphones/charger!
I didn't receive headphones or a charger plug and can't charge my phone I bought online directly through apple! I am dissatisfied with my purchase and would like the unincluded items to be sent as I paid full price expecting such items to be included.
