Where to make a Genius Bar appointment???
Since Apple hasn't brought back the Genius Bar I've deleted the app. If Apple elimates the 3.5 earphone jack it will be time to think about eliminating the iPhone. Nice work Timmy Cook.
Yet another HUGE mistake under the Tim Cook reign: cutting back on customer service. The previous version of this app's best feature was the easy ability to make an appointment at the Genius Bar. Now that feature is gone. Apple is apparently trying to shift customers away from having face to face support and would rather shift customers to online support. Really??? Given the fact that Apple products continue to lose ground to their competition in every category the one differential that keeps many of us loyal is the ability to realitivly easy was to meet with a friendly knowledgeable expert that fixes issues with the product. After nearly two decades as an Apple enthusiast I am getting ready to bounce to Samsung for my first non-Apple smartphone, especially if the 3.5 earphone jack disappears.
No longer helpful
Several years and several iPhones ago, I downloaded this app to schedule an appointment with the Genius Bar at my local Apple Store. It was easy to use for scheduling as well as canceling and/or rescheduling appointments. I tried to schedule an appointment through the app today and after going through all the menus/questions, my options were to send my phone in by mail, call support, schedule a call with support or chat with support. I chose the chat option & the rep offered to schedule the appointment. I inquired & he confirmed that the app can no longer be used to schedule/manage appointments. He then explained I could schedule an Genius Bar appointment through the Apple website. Something I could previously complete within a couple of minutes took about an hour. Major inconvenience. Deleting this app.
Apple manufactures predominantly overseas, utilizes offshore tax entities, and demands a high-margin retail for their products. They'll even sell you AppleCare. But this obvious strategy to reduce GB utilization is ill-conceived. Yesterday it was reported Timmy Cook earned (and exercised) some 1 MILLION stock options solely for remaining with Apple for 5 years. It seems others are finally waking up to his low record of innovation and achievement during this period, unless you approve of his liberal pet projects like building costly "green" energy plants and supporting far-left democrats. Steve Jobs was a spendthrift genius who led Apple into a successful behemoth based on innovation and service. Cook is a plotter who's ridden this wave of success but seems incapable of leading Apple toward long-term growth. Buying suppliers and redeveloping existing products into lines like Apple Music and AppleTV is not a recipe for long-term success.
