Your iPad purchase comes standard with a 90 days Telephone Technical Support as well as Repairs and Service Coverage for 1 Year (365 days).
This warranty package starts from the day that you first connect your iPad to iTunes for activation. You may have had this done immediately after payment in the store where you bought the iPad. You need not perform any extra actions to activate the iPad warranty
If you’d like to confirm or review your iPad Warranty at any time, you can do so online at the Apple website. We have provided a set of instructions below to guide you through this process.
Instructions: Checking Your iPad Warranty Online
On your iPad, go to the Home screen and tap on “Settings”.
Once in Settings, tap on the “General” tab on the left and then on “About”.
Find your iPad’s “Serial Number” and note it down. You will need it in the next step.
From here onwards, you may check your iPad’s warranty details from any Internet browser including the Safari app on the iPad or the one you are currently viewing this post from.
Enter the Serial Number you obtained from Step 3 into the “Hardware Serial Number” field.
Under the “Country” drop down box, choose “Show Complete Country List”. “Malaysia” should now show up as an option you can now select.
Select “See Your Service and Support Coverage”.
You should now be presented with all the warranty details for your iPad.
Error in Warranty Estimated Expiration Date
A common misconception is that Apple displays the wrong Estimated Expiration Date. For example if you purchased the iPad on April 29th 2011, Apple will detail your Telephone Technical Support and Repairs/Service Coverage as expiring on July 27, 2011 and April 27, 2012 respectively. This is in fact correct as the warranty is calculated in days and not months. Some months have 30 days, some 31.
Conclusion: Extending Your iPad Warranty
In Step 7, you will be able to see your eligibility status for the AppleCare Protection Plan. This indicates the option for you to extend your warranty for an extra year subsequent to when your standard warranty expires. You are only eligible for this option within the one year standard warranty. Simply select “Extend Coverage” if you would like to proceed and you will receive further instructions.
We hope this guide will become a useful reference for you to come back to whenever you decide to review your iPad Malaysia Warranty.
