Apple admits some of IPhone X have faults in touch screens

Apple’s new Mac Book Air is displayed during the company’s showcase of new products last month in New York Apple admits touchscreen fault with iPhone X

The iPhone X service program targets faulty display modules that may suffer from touch issues.

Symptoms of this problem include a display, or parts of a display, that do not respond to touch and a display that reacts as if touched even if it is not.

The £999 handset, which was released last November and discontinued in September, has been plagued by complaints from users that its touch screen was not working properly for several months.

There has been an ongoing touch issue with some of the iPhone X units as well as MacBook Pro 13 data loss problems and the company is now acknowledging them by launching a replacement program for both. Apple also notes that this issue is limited to the 2017 iPhone X; presumably, newer models like the iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR are not impacted. The servicing is done through Apple or an Apple Authorized Service Provider. Canadian devices are on the list of affected countries, according to Apple. As with any repairs where your device will be undergoing major surgery, Apple suggests that you perform an iTunes or iCloud backup before bringing your iPhone X in for service. "13-inch MacBook Pro units with affected drives were sold between June 2017 and June 2018".

Khloé Kardashian and baby True evacuate home as fires rage
Meteorologists issued red-flag warnings and wind alerts throughout the state into Friday, sparking fears the fires could worsen. Lady Gaga posted on her Instagram story on Friday afternoon that her Malibu estate was evacuated earlier that morning.

Same as with the iPhone X, Apple or an Authorized Service Provider will replace the SSD for free.

In June, Apple said it would offer free replacements for the keyboards in some MacBook and MacBook Pro models.

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. If it is, Apple will fix the laptop, though you should do a full backup first.
