Got a bad 3TB hard drive in your iMac? Apple will replace it

Apple has started a program that allows iMac owners to get a new 3TB hard drive.


If you bought an iMac with a 3TB hard drive between December 2012 and September 2013 and you’re having problems with that drive, Apple will replace it for free.

The iMac (27-inch) 3TB Hard Drive Replacement Program replaces 3TB hard drives that, according to Apple, “fall under certain conditions.” The serviced will be performed at your local apple Store or at a nearby Apple Authorized Service Provider.

According to the Replacement Program website, Apple has contacted iMac owners who registered their iMac with a valid email address. If you did not register, you can check and see if your iMac is eligible by entering the serial number on the Replacement Program website.

The 3TB hard drive was a customer option for the 27-inch iMac. It was not part of the standard configuration. These iMacs were among the first to feature the new thin design.
