• Apple Announces 3TB Hard Drive Replacement Program for Some 27-inch iMacs



    On Friday, Apple has announced a new replacement program pertaining to a number of 27-inch iMacs that were sold between December 2012 and September 2013.

    As the replacement program implies, 3TB hard drives that came with some of these models are prone to premature failure and as a result, Apple suggests immediate replacement to ensure that the contents of the drive are salvaged in time before the failure happens.

    The page, which can be accessed at this link, lets you input your machine's serial number to check for your eligibility. If you're not eligible, then you're probably not affected by the glitch. If you are, then you should seek help from an Apple Store as soon as possible. If you don't have any locally, you can also call in to talk to an Apple representative about mail-in options.

    Moreover, if you own one of these iMacs and had a hard drive replaced on it recently due to hard drive failure, Apple notes that you might be eligible for a refund for that repair.

    After the drive is replaced, the operating system will have to be reinstalled on the machine and the contents of the old hard drive will have to be transferred over to the new one.
