But it seems that something is changing in Cupertino’s policy: in MacRumors they have discovered an internal communication from the company in which it is said that this warranty will no longer be totally void if the iPhone has been repaired by someone not authorized .
The change in policy is that while before Apple refused outright to touch a phone that had been repaired by an official service, now it will do so depending on the situation. If your iPhone has an unofficial screen and suffers a malfunction unrelated to that screen, Apple will check the phone for fraudulent components and repair it for you .
Such a repair may involve replacing the faulty component or even changing the terminal. If the phone is under warranty you will pay the price of the component or the replacement of the device, and if there is no warranty the price will go up as usual. This will occur in both the Apple stores and at authorized technical services .
If the customer refuses any of the repairs for their price, Apple has the right to refuse service completely. And if the unofficial component of the iPhone causes further damage while someone authorized by the company attempts to make the necessary repair, then you will have to pay the price for repair or replacement of the handset as if you had no warranty. The risk is therefore a little lower, but it is still there without a doubt .
Apple also has the right to deny service if the unofficial component placed in your iPhone is the aluminum case, motherboard, battery, Lightning connector, headphone port, volume or mute buttons, lock button, or even some microphones. Come on, it’s almost easier to say they’ve just relaxed their rules in case you’ve changed the display.
For the time being, this change in the rules will apply in the United States and Canada , and other countries are likely to see the change over time as well.
