The best way to return an iPhone

I've been doing a lot of testing over the last month or so resulting in me returning a couple of iPhone's. There are several options to do this, I wanted to share my thoughts on which one turned out to be the best.

In my experience returning it in store (if you are within a drive to the Apple Store) was the best. It's important to make sure you return it

  • With the original box
  • With the original accessories
  • Totally restored iPhone
  • No inserted SIM card

Take your receipt, it will be either the printed one they gave you or the email that was sent. The email will contain a PDF.

This method worked for me with the least amount of hassle.
