Owners will be able to get Macs, iPhones, Cinema Display and iPads sorted without paying, as long as where they live is in an area hit by the natural disaster. These have been outlined in Japan’s Disaster Relief Act.
iPod nanos, classics and shuffles are not included in the offer. Anyone who wants to take advantage of Apple’s deal will need to drop the Cupertino company a line by 30 June.
