Warranty conditions

The standard warranty for Apple devices is 1 year from the date of purchase. In addition, the 2-year statutory warranty applies in Switzerland. Apple provides 90 days free phone support on all devices (valid from date of purchase).

The third year of warranty is optional and can be purchased with the device.

For Apple laptops, this is AppleCare+. The validity of the Apple warranty can be checked with the Online Service Assistant.

For DQ Solutions AG this is CarePlan. This warranty extension is included with the recommended Neptun configurations. 

Hardware damage

Report Dead-on-Arrival (DoA - new unit defective on delivery)

Device is defective upon receipt - DoA cases must be reported immediately to DQ Solutions AG. This can be done under the telephone number 044 745 77 55 or directly in a DQ Solutions AG branch

Report hardware defect (without DoA cases - see above)

For technical support on devices purchased in Neptun Autumn Window 2016 and later, you can contact Apple or DQ Solutions AG, or any Apple service provider worldwide, in the first year after purchase.

At DQ Solutions AG, support cases can be registered directly on the phone 044 745 77 55 or in person at a branch

In the second year after purchase, technical support is handled exclusively through the retailer where you purchased the device or an Apple Authorized Service Provider: You can either contact a DQ Solutions AG branch directly or by phone on 044 745 77 55 with the invoice receipt (warranty certificate) of your device. Alternatively, you can contact another Apple Authorized Service Provider in Switzerland or worldwide for warranty repairs on devices purchased elsewhere.

For warranty issues in the third year, or the following years after purchase, you can contact DQ Solutions AG if you have purchased a CarePlan. Alternatively, you can contact any Apple Authorised Service Provider worldwide. 

Please note that the warranty claim must be discussed and approved in advance with DQ Solutions AG. Initially, service will be provided at your own expense by an Apple Authorised Service Provider. The costs will be refunded after sending the invoice to DQ Solutions AG. The serial number of the device must be noted on the invoice. 

If you have purchased AppleCare+ Extended Warranty with your device, you can contact Apple directly.
