What is complimentary technical support?
The complimentary technical support that Apple provides is broken down into hardware and software support.
Firstly, Apple will provide free hardware support via telephone for basic setup, assembly, connectivity and installation. Check the support documents included with your Apple product for more information.
Similarly, Apple will provide free software support by telephone for launch, installation and reinstallation. That is, assuming your product meets the minimum system requirements.
However, Apple does not provide complimentary help for data recovery. Check the support-related materials included with your Apple product for further information.
How does Apple define “support incident?”
This is important to familiarise yourself with. If you have had your product for longer than 90 days, Apple can refuse to provide you with complimentary support and may charge you. This depends on the specific product.
Apple defines a support incident as a “specific, discrete issue that can be addressed by isolating its origin to a single cause.” Ultimately, a support incident has been resolved when the customer receives:
- Information from the support team that resolves the issue.
- Guidance on how and where to get a software solution that will resolve the issue.
- Notice that the issue is caused by a known, unresolved issue or an incompatibility issue with the supported product.
- Information that identifies the issue as being resolved by upgrading to a newer release of the supported product.
- Notice that the issue has been identified as a hardware equipment issue.
- Details that isolates issue to a third-party product, not supported by Apple.

Can I get technical support after 90 days?
Yes, Apple has two products called AppleCare and AppleCare+. Both of these extend your warranty coverage and provide technical support. Furthermore, they expand the scope of support available. When you purchase AppleCare+ you receive two instances of accidental damage repair at discounted prices in most regions.
The AppleCare Protection Plan is available for many Apple products including:

Can I get support in Apple Stores?
Indeed you can; Apple provides in-store support via its Apple Genius Bar. This service is for simple hardware or software fixes.
However, you must make an appointment in advance to access this service. The great news is that your appointment is free. But, things o get more complicated if your product can’t be fixed then and there. If the product requires an overnight stay or has to be shipped off, the repair can get expensive. However, if you have AppleCare costs are reduced.
You can make an appointment with your local Apple Genius Bar here.
