Apple currently offers a one year warranty on all of its devices it sells in the US and Europe, but now Apple will offer a two year EU statutory warranty in Europe and all of its products.
The EU warranty is slightly limited though as it only covers defects that were present when the device was shipped to you and it does not cover defects that arose after that, those defects will be covered for one year under Apple’s one year limited warranty.
The table below from Apple explains how the new two year EU statutory warranty will work with your device, and it looks like it will be down to the person who purchased the device to prove that the defect was there when the device was shipped.
You can find out more details on the new EU statutory warranty from Apple over at their website.
