  • Clicking the 'Add to Cart' button will add the item in question to your 'shopping cart'.
  • When you are done selecting items click on the shopping cart icon and select 'View and edit cart'. At this stage you can still change the items.
  • Once you are happy with your selection click on 'Checkout', this will bring you back to the EDH Material request, with one line per selected item.
  • Fill in the Material request as usual.


iPhones can be ordered directly from the CERN stores in EDH.

Apple warranty: 1, 2 or 3 years?

By default, Apple provides a limited world-wide warranty for 12-months following the date of purchase.

Based on Swiss law, Apple provides 2-year warranty, as explained in this Apple document. Please note that the conditions between the 1st and 2nd year of the warantee can be different as explained in this document.

Apple also proposes an optional paid 3-year warranty extention. Considering the very high cost of this extension, the hardware failure rates and the drop in the value of the equipment with time, the CERN IT department advises strongly against purchasing this warranty extension.
