Apple is fixing these iPhone X and MacBook Pro problems for free

Apple said to begin selling iPhone XR, new iPad Pro, and more on Amazon Apple admits touchscreen fault with iPhone X

You can enter in your device's serial number here to see if your 13-inch MacBook Pro without Touch Bar is eligible or not. The handset may have an issue where the display doesn't respond correctly to touch inputs, or seems to react even when it's not being touched - so if you notice this behavior then Apple will fix your phone for free.

Taking note of the issue, Apple conducted an investigation of its own and has now concluded it was indeed true and has initiated a free replacement programme across the world for the affected iPhone X owners.

Apple-authorized resellers will supply most of the stock to Amazon - non-approved sellers can no longer send Apple products to Amazon warehouses from December 1 and must file with Amazon to have any warehoused Apple inventory returned after January 4.

The screen, or part of the screen, does not respond or responds intermittently to a user's touch.

This program covers iPhone X handsets for three years from the date of sale. Here's what you need to know about getting your screen sorted out free of charge. Apple now has a support page live for both the devices.

California bar shooting: Ian David Long identified as suspect
When he arrived, Sergeant Helus heard gunfire coming from inside the bar, which was occupied by almost 200 college students. Helus and a highway patrol officer exchanged gunfire with Long, he said, and the sergeant was shot "several times".

Apple announced flat iPhone sales in its fourth quarter, despite the introduction of the XS model in the period.

Apple hadn't previously responded to reports of problems with iPhone X screens despite thousands of complaints online, these are also products that Apple is asking consumers to pay a premium price for. The company will also email customers who have registered their devices with Apple to inform them about the program.

However, users have to first check if their MacBook Pro is eligible for the program. What's more, Apple writes that repairs may be limited to the original country of purchase, though we can't imagine this will be an issue for most owners.

For the 13-inch MacBook Pro, Apple said some devices might have an issue that causes data loss or drive failure.
