Apple offering free repair for iPhone 7 ‘No Service’ issue

By : |February 5, 2018 0

Reports about iPhone 7 devices suffering ‘No Service’ issue have been doing the rounds for over an year now. Thankfully, Apple has finally acknowledged the bug and is offering free repairs to owners of the “small percentage” of iPhone 7 devices that may be displaying a No Service notice in the status bar even when networks are available.

The cause of the problem is apparently a failed component on the logic board, and Apple says affected units (with model #s A1660, A1679, and A1780) extend through its entire production run from September 2016 until now and sold in the US, Hong Kong, Japan, China and Macao.

Apple says if the device has unrelated issues such as a cracked screen, customers will need to get that resolved first before going through the complimentary No Service repair. Lastly, iPhones eligible for this program must be purchased less than two years ago. If a customer has already paid to have this fixed, they may be able to receive reimbursement for the repair cost.

The free repair program comes after Apple announced  a discounted battery replacement program to address older iPhones that have slowed down due to an intentional battery throttle by the company via iOS software to prevent sudden shutdowns.
