Apple introduces 14-day refund window for App Store, iTunes, and iBooks downloads in Europe

One of the things that has always annoyed me about the App Store was the inability to easily refund an app after you purchased it. While Google offered a one-click solution to this problem, Apple instead wanted you to either mail the developer or send a support complaint to Apple, explaining why you want to refund the app.

All that has now changed, as the company has introduced a new 14-day, no-questions-asked refund window, not just for the App Store but also downloads made on the iTunes as well as the iBooks store. Unfortunately, this is only available in Europe right now.

While the 14-day refund window is amazing for customers, one has to wonder how game developers might feel about this, considering you can play a game multiple times and refund it and get your money back. Hopefully, people won’t abuse the system and that it is made available outside of Europe soon.
