Revenue Recognition

Apple recognizes revenue when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, delivery has occurred, the sales price is fixed or determinable, and collection is probable.

ASC 605-15-25-1
If an entity sells its product but gives the buyer the right to return the product, revenue from the sales transaction shall be recognized at time of sale only if all of the following conditions are met:

The seller's price to the buyer is substantially fixed or determinable at the date of sale.
The buyer has paid the seller, or the buyer is obligated to pay the seller and the obligation is not contingent on resale of the product.
The buyer's obligation to the seller would not be changed in the event of theft or physical destruction or damage of the product.
The buyer acquiring the product for resale has economic substance apart from that provided by the seller
The seller does not have significant obligations for future performance to directly bring about resale of the product by the buyer.
The amount of future returns can be reasonably estimated

Warranty Cost:

Apple provides for the estimated cost of warranties at the time the related revenue is recognized based on historical and projected warranty claim rates, historical and projected cost-per-claim, and knowledge of specific product failures that are outside of the Company’s typical experience.

ASC 460-10-25-5
Because of the uncertainty surrounding claims that may be made under warranties, warranty obligations fall within the definition of a contingency. Losses from warranty obligations shall be accrued when the following conditions are met:
a. It must be probable that one or more future events will occur confirming the fact of the loss.
b. The amount of loss can be reasonably estimated.
