Apple’s holiday return period was announced on its website with the extended dates allowing purchases from today to be returned until January 8th, 2019.

The 2018 Apple holiday gift guide is showing up on the company’s homepage. It features various collections of Apple products with the tagline “Together for the holidays.”

The top featured collection includes the iPhone XS, Apple Watch Series 4, and AirPods. Notably, Apple just inked a deal with Amazon to sell more of its products directly through the online retail giant ahead of the holiday shopping season.
