Apple chops iPhone return policy to 14 days

The Cupertino, Calif.-based company has shortened the window from 30 days, bringing it in line with return policies from carriers.

Apple has shortened its return window for iPhones from 30 days to 14 days.

The change not only brings the policy in line with Apple's other products, it also makes the return window consistent with those of most phone carriers. Previously, customers who wanted to return an iPhone could do so within 30 days, but were still on the hook for early termination fees with carriers if the return was made after two weeks.

But as 9to5Mac, which first reported the news, points out, the extra time was helpful for customers looking to make minor changes to their iPhone, like going for a different color or memory capacity.
