My one broke yesterday, I need to get one as soon as possible but I don't want to pay £60 for one.
It's the sort of thing I'd be inclined to suck and pay for a new, real version of.
for cheaper. Cheers though!
but depending on how it broke and if there's signs of cable strain or anything like that, they may well exchange it (even out of warranty).
they made me book an appointment at the 'genius bar' but it took about two minutes for them to swap it. comment defect, apparently.
Were you in the warranty period ibzo? Did you have to pay anything and how long did it take altogether?
i didn't even know i had warranty but apparently i did... but my old housemate had the same issue, out of warranty and they did it for free.
took about three days until the next genius bar appointment was available, but it was literally two minutes between sitting at the bar and the 'genius' getting a new one out of the drawer, and me leaving the shop. all free.
in warranty exchanges they do no questions asked. Out of warranty they'll do if there's no evidence of accidental damage (cable strain excepted).
booked an appointment, so we'll see what they say
It's when my appear kit started going wrong when I realised what a fucking terrible company apple are. 60 pounds for a charger! This is almost as bad as when they tried to charge me 80quid for a headphone jack
don't get a cheaper non-apple one off amazon. i did that once and it was awful, just spent the whole time intefering with the speakers.
