  • Print this label and take it along with your iPod/Apple Watch/mobile phones to your nearest Australia Post location. By printing this label, you accept the Terms and Conditions of the program.
  • Australia Post will provide you with appropriate packaging free of charge.
  • Mobile phone, Apple Watch and iPod batteries should be completely run down before any items are mailed. This reduces the possibility of items switching on during shipping.
  • Any batteries that are detached from the main phone unit should be placed in a separate envelope.
  • Batteries that are corroded, leaking or otherwise damaged must not be posted under this program. These batteries can be recycled at an Apple Store. See locations here.
