Japan has experienced immense and devastating floods this year. The impact of it was people evacuating their homes and the damage was worth millions. Apple is no slouch when it comes to assistance, so in a new support document published, the company has announced that it will repair any product - iPhone, Macs, iPads, and iPods which were directly damaged by the heavy floods, for free. So let's dive in to see some more details on the matter.

Apple Offers Free Repairs For Almost All Products For The Victims Of Japan Floods

As we mentioned earlier, the devastating floods swept through Japan this month and have tragically caused hundreds of deaths. The company is expressing its sympathies for anyone who was affected by the natural disaster by offering free repairs of any iPhone, Macs, iPads, Thunderbolt Displays, and iPods. The new support document strictly goes against Apple's repair policies that do not cover water damage.

The company says that it will repair any Apple product for free which also includes the courier delivery. The company will repair the products as long as they are in a repairable state from the intense flood damage. Upon contacting Apple, the company will collect the damaged item from your doorstep and once it has been repaired, the company will send it back to you.

Affected residents can claim the offer or service by calling Apple telephone support on this number - 0120-27753-5. However, be sure to note that online repairs are not included. While almost all product lines are part of the service, the company has not added accessories to the list. In addition to this, the proof of ownership is also required if you wish to claim the service.

It is definitely a pretty nice gesture from Apple and more companies should adopt it. There will be more to the story, so be sure to stay tuned for more details.
