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
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!!!!!

They claim abt climate change and exclude products from box and pushing the sales of those excluded accessories by cross selling, then what about so called “climate change”. If we order online direct apple accessories it takes decades to reach us after they show postage has posted.27 oct posted but still 7 nov not reached .
Greedy and reckless
While in lockdown I bought the latest IPhone that as you know is not cheap at all.. I bought it with apple cafe and Apple said the delivery was for free...
of course it was for free it was theworst delivery service ever. Once you have given your money to apple they just don’t care and they will ship it with a company that has 1.2 stars review, when you enquiry about your product they wash their hands saying is related to the delivery company not to them.
I didn’t hire the delivery company I paid directly to APPLE so you should be responsible.
Very bad service
With support from apple staff I lost all information on my phone. The staff [name removed] promised to call back with a solution. They haven’t called back even after I emailed. So frustrating. I won’t buy an apple product again. I have not received promised call to resolve original problem and the additional problem caused by apple staff. Am still waiting for the phone call.

Will not honour 3 month free Apple Music offer
On 11 Oct my husband signed up for Apple Music family subscription with a 3 month free promotion.
He didn’t have iTunes on his android device so he asked me to set it up. I set up the family and was then charged $17.99. I sent Apple a request for refund, which they gave, but then they cancelled the family subscription without our consent on 13 Oct.
We now can sign up for Apple Music BUT cannot get 3 months free because Apple say we had a subscription and it was cancelled and we cannot have the promotion a second time (told me to read the fine p...
Rubbish. Buy anything but an Apple computer.
The Apple desktop we bought in 2018 is the worst computer we have had! It takes 20-30 minutes to start Chrome and/or iTunes!! Imagine waiting 20 minutes to start a car...
WHAT A JOKE!
I've always stuck with apple because of the high quality and service. The ball has been dropped on both accounts with my recent apple purchase, an iMac.
1. it's so slow, I may as well have a slab of rock and a chisel
2. replacement of components - tech didn't even finish setting me up when he left leaving me without access to the computer.
3. apple tech support have been unsympathetic and mostly unhelpful
4. referred to a third party repairer for another assessment where I'm then told if nothing is deemed wrong with the machine a...
RUDE AND ARROGANT
Went to service and repair an I-Pad. Made an appointment (why was it necessary as there were only ever 3-4 other customers in the Hornsby store. At one stage there were 8 staff standing against the back wall chatting amongst themselves. The only ones working consistently were the cleaners wiping down the same desks every few minutes. The person helping me had to get several computers as some were "not working as they should" and there were faulty cords. After just 90 minutes success. It seemed like a difficult process for "an update", sti...ll what do we mere mortals understand The Manager chatted and was quite dismissive, and in many ways appeared arrogant. Advice: Make an appointment, expect to be there a while but don't expect "awesome" service. Oh, and they have zero sense of humour.

Their service and quality quickly degrading
Spent more than a thousand dollar to buy an iPhone X. After 2 years, the battery ran out at 3 PM. Spent an hour over the phone with an Apple agent on diagnosis. While on hold, the call disconnected. The agent didn't call me, and closed the case. Apple's hardware quality and service quality are both degrading fast!
Not showing u how
I bought a MS office and student 2019. I installed but I couldn’t find it in my Mac. I went to the shop, the staffs said we can’t help you.
My MacBook Air which is only 13 months old wouldn’t turn on so I took it to one of the only 2 stores in Perth ( 2 million people What!).
I arrived got to find people queued up on the road outside to get in , the attendant said “oh you want a chat with somebody ? That’s a 3/4 hour wait”.
Ok I thought I’ll wander around , I came back at the appointed time only to be told “oh you have to wait another hour! “
So essentially they wanted us to wait on the road for almost two hours ! That’s the worst service I have ever had , Wow! That’s what happens when you give a multinational a virtual monopoly. Don’t buy Apple their service is crap.
Don’t be fooled by the free Apple TV subscription
Purchased an Apple TV told I also get free Apple
Tv subscription for twelve months can watch all movies and tv content free
Watched three movies and was charged tried to get it sorted by Apple and they kept brushing off
Total rip off BUYER BEWARE
Very Rude Customer Service
The first visit they kept my MacBook and stated they could not find the issue with my trackpad. They did a complete reboot of the computer. When I collected the MacBook I was not shown that the computer was working and was just handed the MacBook. When I reached home and switched on the computer I saw the trackpad was still not working. I returned the next day and handed the computer back. When I went to pick it up they returned the computer without the case. I called and spoke to Jane, who at first stated that Apple doesn't take cases but then...confirmed that the case was in store. When I told her how frustrated I was with the whole experience as I had made 3 trips in three days to the store, her response was - "We cant ship the case back to you. You should be thankful that we did not charge you anything to repair the computer. A train ride to Penrith from Blacktown takes only 20 minutes." I was amazed at her response and will never recommend anyone to this apple store in Penrith. Made me feel as if they were doing me a favour when the work on y MacBook was covered by Consumer Law Warranty. Never go to this store to repair your computer. The only reason I went there was because Castle Towers were booked out. The store Manager, Darren was covering up the bungle his staff made the first time I went there and was not helpful either. This Jane should not be working in customer service!
I bought a macbook and it constantly crashed
It works right up untill warranty experies, apple doesn't actually carea bout customers, they only want your money, once my warranty experied the macbook randomly shut down every hour. After seeing an apple technician they said it was a write-off and I would have to buy another. This is just a complete scam, do NOT buy apple products.
I was not satisfied by the apple store customer service due to me going there to repair my phone and had booked a day to fix my phone I was not allowed to go in the store nor was allowed time to get my phone checked and they had gave me a limited time to get a new phone which I was not there for and was told that I had a remaining time of 15 minutes to pick a new phone and get out which caused an argument between me and the employee as for the employees there were disrespectful and rude. Would never go back there.
They are just trying to make people fool
One of the worst experience I have ever had. Don’t ever believe in the discount they offer. These people think they are the only smartest people exists. We never asked for any discounts then, I don’t understand why they act like giving discounts and charge more in return. Disgusting.
Questions & Answers
Will Apple users be so broke from their faulty Apple products that they will soon have online help groups where they swap parts and cry into each other’s coffee about being suckers?
Don't get sucked in by Apple's Interest-free option of "Latitude". It costs $4.95 a month in fees. I am so disgusted I'm going to the Ombudsman about it.
The loan is interest free, however the monthly fee of $4.95 is commonplace in the finance insider for all loans, both small and large (even zipper do this).
