Apple recalling some iPhone 8 devices for manufacturing defect

Do you own an iPhone 8? You may want to check if it is part of a new recall.

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. 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. This program does not affect iPhone 8 Plus models or other iPhone models.

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.
