Having paid for a phone as expensive as the iPhone 7, glitches are what you least expect. The tech giant that Apple is, has recognised a small malfunctioning in its iPhone 7 and has vouched its customers that the repairs will be done for free.
iPhone 7 users have been experiencing this problem for some time; the device notifies that there is no cellular service available when in fact there is. A lot of users have experienced this after they switched the phone to air plane mode and then turned it back to normal mode which resulted in no connectivity.
Apple confirmed the possibility of this issue, stating that it was caused due to a malfunctioning on the device’s main logic board. There were a certain number of sets which were manufactured from September 2016 to February 2018 and sold in China, Hong Kong, Macao, USA and Japan. For the identification of these sets Apple has provided specific model numbers;
- China: A1660, A1780
- Hong Kong: A1660
- Macao: A1660
- US: A 1660
- Japan: A1779
Another pre-condition that Apple has set is that the phone should have been purchased in the last 2 years, and should not be suffering from any other technical fault. If there are other issues present in the phone then it is required that those problems be fixed first.
In order to get the repair, iPhone holders can directly contact and make an appointment with Apple store or authorised dealers.
Apple has also launched a scheme to offer low price battery replacements for the iPhone 7.
