Repair shop told me that if we were still in the EU, my iPad mini which was bought only 18 months ago would still be covered by the apple warranty even though I bought it from Currys who only offered the one year cover.

That got me thinking because at the time I bought it we were still in the transition period when as I understand it the EU rules still applied.  So shouldn't Apple honour the guarantee (having been made to accept it over 10 years ago now) if it applied at the time of purchase?

I have also read that under consumer law you're covered for 6 years - 🤔 I don't understand this as that is something I've never heard about before anyway.  The fault is that the iPad has shut down and cannot be restarted - there's no way that could be down to my misuse or abuse so no burden of proof on me that it wasn't a fault waiting to happen with a dodgy part from the get-go - no attempt has ever been made to open the iPad and it has only ever been charged with the supplied charger and lead.
