In a bold move, Apple is now offering to service and repair any iPhone, iPod, iPad, Mac, and even some accessories like an Apple’s Cinema Display that were damaged by Japan’s Earthquake and Tsunami last March. The offer applies to any affected customer who primarily lives in municipalities covered by the Disaster Relief Act of 2011.
As stated by Apple’s Japanese support website (here’s an English translation), Apple will pick up, repair and return your device at no charge. They are also offering free access to their AppleCare Service & Support Line for those who end up solving issues over the phone.
Apple has done a great job in offering a helping hand to the Japanese community after the disaster. From raising funds through iTunes sales, to turning their Apple Retail Stores into Communication Centers where affected citizens could contact their family members through Skype and FaceTime. It’s great to see them continue moving in that direction.
