Had to wait in line an hour before the store opened and then was told to come back tomorrow and repeat the process again as they were booked out for appt for later that day. So went back the next morning, waited another 45 mins, booked an appt to pick up my new Mac book for later that afternoon (after work). Arrived at the appt on time and was told that they had sold out of the product and that I to wait potentially a month for it to be restocked. Went straight to JB (should have done in the first place) and they sold me a laptop and at a better price than Apple and they included the USB converter for free.
I need my phone looked at as it keeps turning off. Did the online diagnostic and ok. Can’t book an appointment on line, so go into the store. Book an appointment in 2 hours - 2 an half hours later still waiting. When I check they said it’s another hour. I bet if I was buying something they’d be quicker! Poor show Apple
Refused refund after a child accidental purchase
My son with ASD&ADHD accidentally purchased nearly $200 worth of things in Minecraft marketplace without our permission, and Apple refuse my refund request twice without giving me any reasons, I tried the calls, online chat, none of them were helpful, your people basically just told me there was nothing they can do. I need to accept whatever decision Apple made. You left me with no other options. now I’m feeling angry and confused. I’m sure I’m not the only devastate parent out there who had similar experiences.
Update: After email the CEO of “Apple”, they finally refunded me money. I’m surprised and feeling grateful there are still good boss and people in the world of business. Thank you.
APPLE SELL PRODUCTS AND THEN REFUSE AN APPOINTMENT TO HELP ME.
I purchased a new iPhone at Southland Vic,the girl was polite and helpful but didn’t transfer my data from my old phone,said she couldn’t.After ringing Apple for an appointment for follow up help,no appointments available!Told I would need to go to Southland and queue up to make an appointment for another day.
I am elderly and trying to self isolate,I have no one to help me,my emails are not coming through.DISGUSTING SERVICE APPLE!
A total disgrace
An Imac arrived with a dent on the screen, I called to organise a return but after 20 phone calls still no pick up. Today I called again speaking to a guy who sounded half asleep I totally lost it. After this experience I find it quite surprising that people still buy Apple at a premium price for such rubbish service.
They have no idea about what they do
After 10 days from returning an online purchase to store, I haven't received the money back into my account and have been told from my financial company that they have not even received any refund request from Apple yet.
Apple miranda :Worse experience by Chris Aylord- i think he gave a wrong name too perhaps.no name tag so not sure.horrid waste of time as he attended to people buying hoods not repairs.i have 9 apple products thanks to bad service moving to HP and samsung .
I dont need attitude from your lay service people claiming to be managers!
Can’t get my iPhone fixed, no staff can help me
Make a call to Apple to book in my phone as my battery is faulty. Their option was to just keep trying as their system can’t go past 7 days. What a joke?
I’ve spent over 2 hours of my time chasing their tail. Well maybe they can chase mine, I’m so close to going over to Samsung. I understand we are in a pandemic, but I also have a business and need my phone working...
Someone please touch base with me, or Apple is over for us.
Apple support -disgraceful
I purchased series 5 cellular watch, it does not connect to cellular Apple are well aware of the situation and bluntly refuse to issue a refund or come up with a plan for two months every single day I have to call them and every single day they tell me they have updated my case. I am no longer interested in the case or the reasons why it won’t connect I just want a refund but they just refuse to do that. I too have been an Apple supporter in the past. But I have to sell my $800 watch in ebay just to try and recoup some funds, for a huge tech gi...ant I am absolutely disappointed in there very poor behaviour and I won’t purchase anything from them again but the ignorance of the tech giant doesn’t really care if they loose a couple of buyers along the way
Unreliable shipping and patronising staff
First off buying an Apple Watch took me forever online as I couldn’t use zip pay myself I had to message someone to then put in the order for me and then wait for a finance team to call me back so that I could then pay and finalise my order; you’d think being Apple they would be up with the times. I can shop online or in person anywhere else and pay on the spot for zippay. Then I’ve waited a week and my watch still hasn’t been shipped even though I was promised shipping in 2-3 days. Then when I called and asked if anything was holding up my or...der from being shipped I was laughed at and told to wait and that possibly it would be shipped tomorrow, then when looking online it said I won’t be getting it for another 14 days atleast, actually ridiculous when you spend $800 on a product. I have been buying Apple products for 10+ years. There is no where you can actually lodge feedback to stop it from happening in the future. I’ll never support and buy Apple again.
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.
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.
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.
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 ...
- Online store
- Verified customer
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.
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!
An Amazing Customer Support Service, before and after purchasing my MacBook Air and iphone
I was given great advice by Customer Support Service before I purchased an iphone and a MacBook Air. I needed to attend the Apple Store for support in navigating through what was a new experience for me, on a quite regular basis for a number of weeks. On every occasion that I needed support I was assisted patiently and respectfully by Staff either by phone or at the store until my confidence was such that I was able to navigate my lap top without assistance. I am extremely delighted both with my purchases and the ongoing support that I have received, since then.
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).
Perhaps read the terms and conditions below complaining.
