Apple Has Launched New Repair Programs for the iPhone X and 13-Inch MacBook Pro

On November 10th, Apple launched two new repair programs for the iPhone X and 13-inch MacBook Pro without the touch bar.

The repair program for the iPhone X (not the newer XS) is for touchscreen issues that might occur due to a component failure. This can cause the display to not respond to touch or may respond even if the screen is not touched. This issue has been present for months now so it is good that Apple has decided to open up a repair program for this. In the new repair program, users can get the display module replaced for free at any Apple Store. If the device has other signs of damage like a cracked screen, these issues might have to be fixed and paid for first. If your phone has been having response problems like these, try restarting it first and if the problem persists, take it into an Apple Store to have it looked at.

The 13-inch MacBook Pro without touch bar has received a repair program for issues with the storage drive that can result in drive failure and loss of data. Apple has said that the units that could be affected by this were sold between June 2017 and June 2018 and include the 128GB and 256GB variants. If your MacBook Pro is one of the affected units, you can bring it into an Apple Store and they will fix the solid-state drive free of charge. Apple recommends that before doing this you should back up your data since the drive will be wiped during the repair.

You can check if your MacBook Pro is one of the affected units by entering the serial number of the device on this Apple Support page.
