Apple is offering free repairs to some iPhone 7 users affected by a specific bug. The company said there are a “small percentage” of iPhone 7 devices that aren’t getting service because of a bug in its system. Users get a “No Service” message on the status bar on their phones, which is usually reserved for the Airplane Mode or when there is actually no available service nearby.
The company is only offering the repairs for specific model numbers and to customers in certain regions only.
You have to clear Apple’s restrictions though. The company is only offering the repairs for specific model numbers and to customers in certain regions only. According to the company, devices manufactured between September 2016 and February 2018, in China, Japan, Hong Kong, United States and Macao are available. Customers will also have to get their iPhones repaired in whichever region they were purchased.
Also, if your phone has any unrelated issues like a cracked screen, then those will have to be resolved first and not under the free repair policy. Last but not the least, you would have had to purchase the iPhones in question within the last two years. It’s unclear whether customers who have already paid for this repair will get their money back.
