Apple Launches iPhone 8 Logic Board Repair Program

Posted in Commentary with tags on September 4, 2018 by itnerd

It seems that if you have an iPhone 8 that is misbehaving, there may be an avenue for you to get whatever issue you’re having addressed if you bought it before September of last year and March of this year via this new program.

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. (Does not affect iPhone 8 Plus models.)

Apple will repair eligible devices, free of charge. Affected units were sold between September 2017 and March 2018 in Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Macau, New Zealand, and the U.S. If your iPhone 8 has an eligible serial number, Apple will repair it, free of charge

I guess that they couldn’t use the excuse of “you’re holding it wrong” in this case. Anyway, this is something that you should pay attention to if you’re suffering from frequent restarts, freezing, and/or a unresponsive iPhone 8. The problem does not affect the iPhone 8 Plus
