Apple admits touchscreen fault with iPhone X

Apple said to begin selling iPhone XR, new iPad Pro, and more on Amazon

In light of this, Apple today launched a new replacement program for iPhone X users who have encountered this particular touch issue.

According to Apple, the problem causes the iPhone X to respond intermittently to touch.

Though not a widespread problem by any means, some iPhone X users over the past few months have experienced issues with non-responsive and temperamental displays.

Last year, Apple began a massive battery replacement program after it conceded that a software update meant to help some iPhone models deal with aging batteries slowed down the performance of the phones. Sometimes the device may even show a response even if it's not touched at all. To know if your MacBook Pro needs to be serviced, you'll need to enter your device's serial number on Apple's support page. That means that no third-parties that are not authorized to sell Apple products will be able to list and sell products through Amazon, which means a consistent experience and genuine quality products can be purchased if buying an Apple product through Amazon.

News of the arrangement comes days after both Amazon and Apple reported mixed earnings results. And, if your phone was previously repaired as a result of this issue and you paid for the fix, you may be eligible for a refund. In other words, you will have to pay for a new screen separately, which might cancel out the need for a free display module replacement. 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.

Apple hadn't previously responded to reports of problems with iPhone X screens despite thousands of complaints online, these are also products that Apple is asking consumers to pay a premium price for.

Apple will also service these SSDS free of charge. Of course you'll want to run a full back up of all your data first, because you'll get your MacBook back with a blank drive.
