Ap­ple be­gins iphone 8 re­pair

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - CONTENTS -

AP­PLE HAS ac­knowl­edged a man­u­fac­tur­ing de­fect in last year’s iPhone 8 mod­els but not in iPhone 8 Plus or iPhone X. Ap­ple has de­ter­mined that a very small per­cent­age of iPhone 8 de­vices con­tain logic boards with a man­u­fac­tur­ing de­fect. Af­fected de­vices may ex­pe­ri­ence un­ex­pected restarts, a frozen screen, or won’t turn on,” says the of­fi­cial sup­port page. For the af­fected iPhone 8s, Ap­ple will be of­fer­ing re­pairs free of charge. A cer­tain num­ber of units sold in Aus­tralia, China, Hong Kong, In­dia, Ja­pan, Ma­cau, New Zealand and the US, be­tween Septem­ber 2017 and March 2018, have the de­fect. Ap­ple has launched a web page, where users can en­ter their phone’s se­rial num­ber to check whether their iPhone 8 is af­fected by the logic board with a man­u­fac­tur­ing de­fect. The iPhone 8 users with the de­fected logic board can visit an Ap­ple Au­tho­rized Ser­vice Provider for the re­pair, where the de­vice will be ex­am­ined prior to any ser­vice. The re­pairs might be re­stricted or lim­ited to the orig­i­nal coun­try or re­gion of pur­chase. Ap­ple also rec­om­mends backup of con­tent be­fore tak­ing the phone for re­pair. But users with dam­aged iPhone 8 might face some trou­ble. Ap­ple says, If there is any dam­age which im­pairs the abil­ity to com­plete the re­pair, such as a cracked screen, that is­sue will need to be re­solved prior to the ser­vice. In some cases, there may be a cost as­so­ci­ated with the ad­di­tional re­pair.” This re­pair pro­gramme cov­ers af­fected iPhone 8 de­vices for 3 years, af­ter the first re­tail sale of the unit but doesn’t ex­tend the stan­dard war­ranty cov­er­age of the iPhone 8.
