Apple is fixing these iPhone X and MacBook Pro problems for free

Apple admits touchscreen fault with iPhone X

Apple announces repair programs for iPhone X, MacBook Pro problems

Apple blames the problem on a component that may fail on the iPhone X's display module.

The Cupertino, California-based technology giant said Friday the screen on some iPhone X units doesn't respond or responds intermittently when touched. The 13-inch MacBook Pro seems to be affected by the same quality problems discovered with the iPhone X as well. That includes Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, who reported on the issue yesterday and posted a video past year of his iPhone X screen woes.

Apple has quietly launched another couple of official repair programs - that's where it acknowledges manufacturing problems with its products, and offers free fixes for all the devices affected. The servicing is done through Apple or an Apple Authorized Service Provider. The company says that MacBook Pro models affected by this issue were sold between June 2017 and June 2018.

This program covers iPhone X handsets for three years from the date of sale.

If your iPhone X is experiencing this issue, Apple says it will replace the display module at no cost through its official retail stores or via an Authorized Service Provider.

In the case of the 13-inch MacBook Pro, Apple warns that a "limited number" of systems with 128GB or 256GB SSDs could experience data loss and complete failure of the drive.

If you're unsure whether or not your MacBook Pro is covered, you can enter its serial number on Apple's website to see if it is or isn't. You can check if your model is eligible on the web, and get Apple to swap out the drive for you, again free of charge.
