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.
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!
Quick and easy
Always quick and easy service. My phone stoped charging. It was way out of warranty. We came to the store and they fixed it within 2 minutes without any charges. Alway nice and friendly atmosphere even though they are always quite busy
Recently bought a MacBook pro as I needed a computer that could work for a full day without charging. It turns out although it is advertised that this product works more than 10 hours if you are working it just works over 5 and not more. I queried that as I needed a computer to work a full day as I did not have access to charge. I was on the phone for more than 30 hours with people from overseas and was passed from one to another. When I took the computer to Apple store they checked and verified that is does not work as advertised and I have a ...letter to that effect from there. Cut the story short they wasted a lot of my time not saying that their product was not as advertised. At the end they said we are happy to take it back but did not want to take responsibility for their fake advertising. Unfortunately consumer affair is too busy and these guys are too big to make them responsible for fake advertising.....
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.
- Physical store
- Verified customer
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.
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.
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 ...
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!
Genius bar not honest
I need to replace the ear phone and be rejected. The staff wrote a report of physical dent and there is no dent on it. The right set of ear phone had not been working before any damage but I just did not want to bother if I can hear with the let side and the another party still can hear me. The staff is rude and dishonest without any objectivity. I regret so much brought Iphone pro max. will definitely change to another brand for my next phone.
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.
Iv never waited so long for someone to take my money
I was told I needed a phone replacement and then waited for 2 hrs for someone to replace my phone. What was the wait for ? It only took 2 minutes to actually replace the phone
History with Apple macbook, imac & iphone.
Since 2010 I have paid Apple $18,100aud and this has been my experience.
For background I own & operate an IT business that covers office setups, repairs, creative design, marketing...etc. Not a noob, definately annoyed. I'll list these newest to oldest:
- Macbook 2019 16" (max spec): Endless bugs and issues related to the T2 security chip, including restarts, freezes, screen glitching and audio popping. All to do with T2 doing things the intel chip is meant to and Apple haven't developed it properly....yet. These bugs are with all the machin...es. Unsuable in a professional setting and looking online there's waves of returns already. Mine's 3 weeks old and all I've done is debug it and get value out of my AppleCare+. $7000aud - Macbook Pro 2016 13" (no touch bar): 2 keyboard replacements (one in first 2 weeks) with light use and device clean as possible, hardly leaving the house. 2.5 years after owning it, Apple issue a recall for a faulty battery. I visit their website, serial is part of the faulty batch. Book it in for replacement, refused as "it was fine". Battery expands a week later, Apple remove serial number from serviceable devices and tell me they won't touch it. Supplying me with a factory defect then a staff memeber taking it upon themselves to decide my machine is fine cause it looks clean without testing cost me a computer. Thanks Apple. $2500aud - iPhone X 256gb: Touch screen issue on purchase, instant replacement. $1800aud
Dishonest about delivery time
Apple online promised to deliver next business day on their website. The Ipad I ordered turned out to be 7 business days. The customer service operator was robotic. I was unable to cancel the order or make changes to where it was to be delivered. In fact, the courier had to go to an address that no one would be because it was printed on the label. Really quite silly. I ended up having to ask them to keep it in storage for 3 weeks. My son missed out on the Christmas present. Never yet anything posted from apple. They do not live up to their promises and their service is quite ridiculous.
Rude and unhelpful
Telephone support person was rude and unhelpful. He could not resolve my issue with Apple TV and kept saying that I should have called sooner, before the problem occurred. Kept me on hold for long periods and I am pretty sure some of that was on purpose because I asked to speak to his supervisor. I love Apple products & the in store staff are great, but phone support was sub standard to say the least.
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).
