Apple Laptop and Desktop Repair Programs in Dubai By UAE Technicain

From time to time, there are bundles of defective Apple products. The Cupertino company usually collects information, do a study to determine the causes and establish what range of serial numbers have been affected (or could be). From there, it launches a free replacement or repair program for those units.

It is very important that as users, we go to the Apple Store or authorized stores in the slightest suspicion that there is a manufacturing defect in our product. This is something that not everyone does out of ignorance or laziness, but that would help to speed up certain problems. The greater the number of complaints of the same type, the greater the speed of resolution.

There is also a specific website to raise these issues. This is the official feedback website of the company, where we can leave from ideas of improvement of products to the defects that we see in our products. The only problem is that we seem to have to do them in English.

Below, we’ll look at all of Apple’s current replacement and repair programs for defective products (sorted from oldest to most current). The duration is usually a maximum of four years, but even if the program is out of date, I would try to see it in person at an Apple Store or authorized store .
