    Yeah it's not on the website and when I did Apple chat they said 30 days so they were clueless too.

    I wanted to try an Apple Watch that's why and I feel 14 days is barely enough time.

    Do they have a no quibble return policy? Ie, could I buy an Apple Watch, try it for a month and return it saying "I don't like it", or "I've changed my mind"?

    As long as it's in new condition with all the accessories in the box and all that, then yes, you're good to go.

    As long the phone is in tip top condition, no scratch, no dents etc.
    They won't really care about the condition of the accessories. They are more concerned with the phone

    I wonder why they don't just make it through the end of the year. Some people buy New Years gifts or gifts right after Christmas (to get better pricing with various sales) that are still part of the holiday period. They have no problem starting it way on the first day of November but somehow can't give the extra 6 days at the end of December?

    Because if one purchased on 12/25/15 the 14 day return period is 1/8/16. So anything past the 12/26/15 falls on the normal 14 day return period.

    Yes, I guess there's certainly that. Perhaps it would be more accurate to say that why not make the end period 1/14/16 to account of the full holiday period that typically runs through the New Year essentially rather than stop it on Christmas.

    Does anyone know if that applies to engraved items as well? I would guess yes, since the stated policy doesn't seem to mention engravings as an exception.

    Weird. My retail store purchase November 2nd says January 8th return date.

    Yet my opine full price iPhone purchased on November 2nd and delivered on November 5th makes no mention of January 8th return policy.

    I assume return policy applies to online and in store?

    Question, during this holiday return period, can you return online purchases to the retail stores?
    Because it would be stupid to make the gift recipient mail it back to Apple if they don't like it the ipad..
