Computing guarantees (Apple products)

All of our Apple products come with a 2-year guarantee.

Our guarantee provides a repair service delivered by authorised service technicians. This is available to you in the event of a breakdown of any functioning part of your product during the guarantee period. The guarantee details for your products are outlined below.

Product faults

Should your Apple product develop an issue, we suggest you save your data first. Then you can find a solution using our troubleshooting guide or the manufacturer’s handbook.

If you cannot find a solution, you can call our technical support team. Call 0330 123 0106, 8am - 9pm weekdays, 8am - 8pm Saturdays and 10am - 6pm Sundays (call charges will depend on your telephone provider).

Have your model number, order number and date of purchase to hand when you call. You’ll find all of this information on your original receipt - this acts as your guarantee, so please make sure you keep it safe.

In some cases you may also be asked for the product’s serial number, and if your item requires a repair at the same time we will ask you to disable the “Find My” feature. We’ll help you with this when you call.

If we can't repair your Apple product, we'll replace it with the same model, or a model with an equivalent specification. If no equivalent product is available, we'll either offer you the nearest equivalent specification or its selling price value refunded on a John Lewis E-gift card. The maximum refund will be the price you paid. Regardless, we'll always do our best to make sure you're satisfied with the outcome.

We’ll pay for shipping to and from your location if all packaging instructions were followed correctly.

What your guarantee doesn't cover
