Apple will allow unofficial iPhone repairs while maintaining its warranty

Macrumors

Apple has just released an unprecedented internal statement regarding warranty and repair policies. As you know, generally speaking, if you take your gadgets to an unofficial service center during the warranty period , you lose your warranty rights.

From now on iPhones whose screens have been repaired or replaced by non-official establishments will continue to carry the official Apple warranty if they are found during the two years of validity.

So far, if you had any problem with your screen and you went to an Apple Authorized Service Center or an Apple Store, the first thing the staff did was to inspect the device for tampering or fraud, and if they found it, they replaced it at a fee .

But now it won’t be and the repair will be free a, whether it’s within the two-year warranty or we’ve contracted with AppleCare service. However, if your iPhone is out of warranty, you will be responsible for any applicable out-of-warranty repair charges

However, there are two exceptions to this : if a part that has been replaced or repaired by an unauthorized technician causes Apple’s repair or handling to be unsatisfactory or even breaks the device, then Apple will require iPhone owners to pay the fees, both for the repair and the replacement of the terminal, if necessary. Come on, you pay for a new iPhone.

If you would also like to replace an unofficial part – such as a display – with an official part, Apple also encourages its technical services to apply the out-of-warranty rates, even if you have AppleCare. In addition, please note that AppleCare does not cover display and battery replacement, which are probably the most susceptible parts to damage.
