iPhone 8 Devices Have A Severe Problem At Their Logic Board, Warns Apple

Apple, which spent its last months teasing us with its upcoming iPhone 2018 models, now warns customers about a severe problem affecting the iPhone 8 devices. Accordingly, some models of the iPhone 8 series come with “logic boards with a manufacturing defect” that causes the faulty handsets to “experience unexpected restarts, a frozen screen, or won’t turn on.”

But Apple announced that this issue is only affecting a small percentage of its iPhone 8 models, especially those handset manufactured between September 2017 and March 2018 and sold in the US, China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Macau, and New Zealand.

Luckily, you can easily find out if your iPhone 8 is affected by a faulty logic board by just typing in your device’s serial number in the Apple checker you can find here, and the so-called “iPhone 8 Logic Board Replacement Program” will check to see if your handset is at risk. If it is one of the faulty devices, Apple will fix it for free.

Apple pledged to fix the iPhone 8 devices with manufacturing defect on logic boards for free, but not every model is eligible

While the severe problem reported by Apple for a series of iPhone 8 models is the company’s fault, not every affected iPhone 8 is suitable for a cost-free fix.

“If your iPhone 8 has 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,” warns Apple.

So, be careful, because the Apple’s repairing team might not tolerate even the smallest crack in your iPhone’s chassis. On the other hand, if your device is in flawless condition, physically, when you get it back from the Apple, you might retrieve it with the latest iOS version which may not be something you’d like.
