“For reasons that aren’t obvious, Apple has restated the terms of its retail store One to One service to limit how data migration services are offered for new Macintosh purchases,” Gary Allen reports for ifoAppleStore.
“The service is significant, since the company reports that over half of Mac purchases are to new-to-Mac customers, including those with Windows PCs who want to move their existing data to a Mac,” Allen reports. “The U.S. term revisions appeared yesterday on the ‘Details’ Web page for the One to One service, which is offered to new Mac buyers for $99 per year. For that price, a customer can receive Personal Training, Group Training, and Open Training at any Apple retail store, along with initial data migration from an existing Mac or PC to their new Mac.”
Allen reports, “In the latest version of the service terms, data migration can now only be requested within the first 60 days of of the service, instead of any time during the one year service term.”
