Apple were previously made to offer a two year warranty on their devices in Europe, and now Australian regulators have forced Apple to offer a 24 month warranty on their products in Australia.
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has ruled that Apple needs to provide a 24 month warranty in Australia for its products.
The warranty will cover all of Apple devices and will cover repairs and returns of goods, Apple has apparent agreed to the new warranty with the Australian regulators.
Apple were fined AU$2.9 million last year for apparently misleading Australian consumers over the 4G claims on its new iPad, even though there were no compatible 4G networks available when it was launched, Apple quickly changed the wording of the device in Australia and Europe shortly after launch.
