What are the hours and when should I call?

Apple operates the call center for this 800-692-7753 phone number Mon-Sun: 4am-10pm PT. The short answer is that you should call on a Monday. This observation and the following section are based on analysis of a sample set of 59 calls made in the last 90 days using our free, web-based phone (see above).
An important note: busy times vs hold times vs best time to call
When we refer to busy or less busy times, we are talking about the volume of calls. The busiest times are when the most people are calling this Apple phone number (least busy times have fewer people calling). This high call volume does not necessarily mean that you will have a long hold time when you call. Companies like Apple staff their call centers differently based on the time of day and day of the week, so you may experience a shorter wait on hold at the busiest of times. When we refer to the best time to call, we are referring to the optimal combination of lower call volume and shorter wait times.

The least busy time to call

The least busy day to call Apple is Monday. The most busy day to call is Thursday, which averages 800% more phone calls by comparison. Again, this is based on a sample of 59 calls made with our AI-powered, web-based phone in the last 90 days.

Calling this Apple Customer Number

When calling Apple's customer service, I was greeted with a message letting me know that my call would be recorded for training purposes. The recording also stated that this automated system could handle complete sentences, and I should explain how I needed help. Without any specific prompts or options, I said the words 'iPod' as I was interested in potentially purchasing an iPod Touch. 

The automated system asked more questions related to my request, such as whether I was interested in making a purchase, seeking tech support or checking on the status of an order. I spoke the word 'purchase' and was asked additional questions regarding whether my device would be for personal use, business use or for educational purposes. I said personal use and was told to wait for the next available representative. 

However, before I was connected, the system asked if I would prefer to receive a text message with a link to browse devices available for purchase. This would then end the call, and I could access any details online. However, I rejected that option and remained on hold. Within a minute, I was connected with a customer service rep named Nancy, who asked how she could help me today. I shared my desire to potentially purchase an iPod Touch for one of my teens and she shared the bad news that Apple doesn't make or sell new iPods anymore. Due to low sales and more customers relying on smartphones, Apple discontinued iPod production a couple of years ago. 

However, she shared that Apple does sell some refurbished iPods as an alternative option and that I could also check with certified Apple retailers for refurbished devices. She recommended that I visit Apple's website to click on the hyperlink for 'Certified Refurbished,' which would lead me to reputable sellers and quality pre-owned devices. Even a refurbished iPod would be eligible for an Apple warranty as well as Apple Care, which would help provide replacement or repair coverage for damaged devices. 

While not many iPods are currently available, the rep recommended a smaller iPad, even a refurbished one, that could work well for a teen starting with an Apple device. Some older versions of iPads are inexpensive and great for kids, she added. The rep cautioned me to be sure that any refurbished device I consider purchasing has the previous Apple ID and Cloud information removed, so personal information cannot be shared or stored. The call ended after the rep advised me to browse online for the devices or visit a local Apple store.

Based on some of the questions I was asked, it seems most people call Apple for tech support, device purchases and account assistance. Apple easily has one of the best customer service teams regarding access, knowledge and efficiency for customers who need immediate assistance. The rep went above and beyond my request by making helpful suggestions without being impatient or persistent.
