iPhone 12 pro max purchased from Apple Store (Maribyrnong - VIC). Apple sotore sold me apple care+ for lifetime and charged me for it. The sales representative repeatedly said that the warranty is LIFETIME.
apple are the worst
if you want to get lied to used to gain access to your cash go to apple, once they've milked you for what they can they will treat you like an idiot. STEER CLEAR OF APPLE
Interest free period what you’re not told…..
We purchased 2 x new iPhone 12’s, one was cash and the other we took up a 24-month interest free promotion. We’ve had a Latitude credit card for many years and make purchases from time to time – who doesn’t like free money.
The concern with Apple stores that their advisors are not compliant with FSRA, and most do not have access to process a sale through Latitude.
What people need to be aware of, is that if you have a current purchase on your Latitude Credit card, Latitude will not charge you equal instalments to pay the Apple purchase off in f...
Terrible waiting time with appointment.
I was waiting over 1 hr with a appointment at 12pm. The whole system todo with customers waiting is terrible..do not get a appointment ! Do wait in line because with a appointment you will be in the same line as everyone else and you wasted your day waiting around. I purchased a laptop $1500 but treated outside the store unfairly .The 3 team members found it funny when I argued my point.outside staff unprofessional. highpoint store vic. ( buy online )
Poor customer service
I booked an appointment to buy a new iPhone at the Maribyrnong Highpoint shopping centre last Saturday. My appointment was at 11 o’clock for a 15 minutes slot. I was on time and they made me wait for 25 minutes before I was let in the shop. Once in a guy by the name of Jay approached me. He was not welcoming, nor smiling. I said I wanted to buy an iPhone, he replied very coldly : there they are. I said can you talk me through them. He replied
they are all the same the difference is just in sizes. I felt like every question I asked him he had...
It doesn't need to be this way
The easy part was placing the order for an iPhone online and opting to pick up from the local store. Chose the 15 minute slot before 5pm, and now wait for the text/email telling you it's ready to collect. Store closes at 5:30 and still no text at 5pm. So, hoof it down to the store. The "greeter" on the door can't help but make a clever remark as he asks for photo id. You're told to wait outside while they go get your new iPhone. Some welcome eh? Out comes the guy with the phone. Hands it to you, no words of thanks. Off you go mate.
At 6:30 ...
Superbo service with Ben
Couldn’t have been happier after my visit to the Highpoint store in a wheelchair this morning...had an appointment, wheeled straight to desk with Ben and my old clunker iPad from Vietnam, prompt diagnosis, super friendly and laughed at my Baby Boomer jokes and made light of my expertise.(lack of !). Out in a flash and had lunch at a great joint he recommended as a personal fave....no kickbacks ! What’s not to like ?
Worse than Telstra
Visited Apple Store Carindale with damaged product (covered by AppleCare).
Advised that an appointment was needed (no specification as to the type of apptmt) and also advised an incorrect price for replacement of ipad.
Went home, made on line booking for a new ipad because thats what I wanted and there was no obvious option for replacement (its not a repair, but later i was to find out that this was the option I should have selected- silly me its replace, not repair but duh)
Showed up at apptmt time and waited 15 minutes to be served. Upon bein...
Complaint Apple Highpoint Store ( Maribynong) VIC
Apple store complaint
I visited the Apple highpoint store in VIC on the 28/Jan around 3.30 PM in regards to iPhone 12 Pro silicone case exchange warranty issue.
Was served by a lady cacusaian medium hair length blonde. Approached and advised the case was bought on the Jan 05 /2021 and started to show signs of failure within the case in particular splitting and volume up and down button area component protruding bit outside which is abnormal . I explained that this is unreasonable quality and a manufacturing defect , the lady replied, this i...s normal wear and tear, how can it be wear and tear and normal as it has only been used under 30 days and does the product in this instance (iPhone case) does not come with reasonable quality and should be lasting a reasonable period of time not 30 failure within 30 days? She had a quick chat with the manager -male , came back and told me nothing they can do . I said fine, can I at least talk with the manager to explain bit more in-depth explanation, she refused, gave the same answers back and in the end did not even ask the manager. She said she cannot help me and ask me to leave the store , this is a very rude and bad customer service , have I offended anyone here? , I have not sworn or say anything to anyone , all I request is reasonably to have a quick chat with the manager in charge. She said im wasting everyone’s time , with the amount of products I have purchased from Apple store before I am very appalled by the negative experience this sales staff has replied to me in. I don’t blame the manager as he is doing his only thing, but at the very least the lady serving me needs to learn some people skills and learn to have empathy towards customers. I said okay no worries, I will have a chat with ACCC and make a formal complaint, I kindly asked name of her and the manager’s name but did declined. Hence, I walked out of the store and the lady spoke to the security guard and said “ do not let this guy come again, they are all like this “ . At this point I am very upset and have left the store and I felt racially discriminated as why does she need to use the word “ They are all like this “, don’t let him in again” . As a customer, I have not even shouted or yelled at anyone, but spoken in a reasonable way, I am very upset by this and wants the store manager in charge or Apple to get in touch with me directly to solve this complication. I went home, talked to apple advisor, sent them a pic of the phone photo, they will mail the iPhone case out due to warranty defect, where is Apple’s customer value and pride is this how everyone should be treated especially by this lady , representing the “APPLE brand” ??
Why make an appointment
Made an online appointment 1 week ago, arrived early but told to return 5 mins before, have now been waiting over 20 mins past my appointment- unacceptable service. Come on Apple!

Apple Canberra is terrible
I booked a shopping session on Saturday, 2 January 2021, 11:45 am - 12:00 pm to trade in my iPhone X and purchase iPhone mini. The sales assistant did not know anyting and had to ask everything someone else and he looked like he wanted to get rid of me, but he couldn't find the reason. Finally he found one, he asked me if I had physical driver's licence that they needed for a trade-in. I said that I have digital licence, he then looked happy and relieved and said that unfortunately they cannot do a trade-in without physical driver's licence. In...other words, Apple do not accept valid form of digital ID. Apple Canberra wasted my time as if it was nothing. They did not mention during booking process that they will require physical licence for a trade-in and that Apple do not accept digital driver's licence. Shocking!
I bought a new iPad Mini 2 and I am still waiting for it after 5 weeks! Very poor service, Apple really needs to step up its customer service. Very disappointing! Please step up your game!
Products overpriced and do not match advertisements
After years of being a loyal customer, I am amazed at how the store responds to faulty products. I brought a brand new Apple Watch which was advertised showing a drill on the glass and not scratching. I went in the creek and somehow the face had numerous scratches to it. Took it back to the store to say it is meant to be scratch resistant and was just told, okh you hav scratched it and Refused to swap or repair. Also, my battery expanded dangerous out of warranty and was told just get a new phone. Terrible response to faulty products.
iPhone 10 Repair
Appointment for a recall on iphone 10 at Doncaster on 6 Dec 2020. Walked into store with a perfect iphone screen, walked out with a damaged screen. Response was that they do not take responsibility for any damages Store did not offer to fix my screen, this caused me to be extremely anxious and disappointed. Where is the duty of care to customer. Customer Service by staff member who returned my phone was absolutely appauling. iPhone 10 recall issue was not fixed.
Apple services sucks ..pathetic monopoly
Apple and it’s services sucks .. pathetic monopoly .. they provide two years of warranty and their devices can’t last more than that then it will cost a fortune to repair them ..pathetic monopoly
WHat is going on people
Apple store still concerned about the COVID virus. Only shop in Robina centre
Had to have an appointment to enter store. Was in the queue of 10 people.
An Apple staff member standing to one side responsible for handing out face masks.
His mask was off and he had his finger up his nose. In public. Disgusting.
5 people in queue were watching and immediately left the queue.
Apple, Are you people for real. What circus is this.
Worst experience in a long time
I have been an Apple loyal for years and spent thousands on their products. The last visit to the Chadstone store was the worst experience ever. We had to make appointments etc which is understandable with the current situation, however after a day of waiting the person who served us clearly needed more product training and customer skills. Very judgmental and did not have any product knowledge at all. I am taking this further with their store manager, provided they are trained as well and know what they are talking about
My daughters iPhone was 2 weeks out of warranty when the phone wouldn’t charge and the message was along the lines of plug to software. She did and still not working. She took her phone into Canberra Apple and asked for repair, they quoted $800, so she opted to buy a new phone instead.
I asked her for the phone and I took it to a local repair shop for a quote. (Not Apple store). In Sydney.
Outcome was $115 fixed and now my phone.
This is totally outrageous, she bought a new iPhone that was more than $1000.
She had recently bought a house so therefore not flashed with cash.
So my message to anybody out there with a technical issue go elsewhere! Also, if you opt for a new phone don’t leave your old one for them to fix and resell.
Discrimination against people with mask exemptions
The Apple store at HIGHPOINT Mall in Melbourne discriminate against people with mask exemptions & do not allow you to enter the store for your appointment. They treat you like you are carrying the virus or worse, the bubonic plague. I don’t recommend anyone with a medical condition & exemption visit this store.
Repair Booking System
Impossible to make a repair booking online or by phone with Apple Robina!!!! And they couldn’t offer any further information or assistance. The answer was we don’t know and we can’t help you....not good enough Apple!!!!!
