Apple customers with Macs, displays, and iOS
devices that were directly damaged in the Japan earthquake
and tsunami may be eligible for free repairs. The offer, posted on the company's Japanese website, excludes iPod classic, nano, and shuffle, and only applies to customers living in areas covered by the Ministry of Health's Disaster Relief Act. Originally posted in March, Apple's announcement joins Softbank's offer to replace lost iPhones
registered to its network, and free calls to Japan
from U.S. carriers, among others. Considering water and other accidental damage typically voids a device's warranty, you'll want to give AppleCare
a call soon -- the acceptance period only runs through June 30th.
