This weekend saw a major announcement made by Apple that it would start a repair program for the iPhone 6 Plus so as to fix “Touch Disease” that third party repair specialists had raised alarm of.
The Touch Disease works in such a way that your iPhone will repeatedly indicate grey flickering bars but remains unresponsive to touch inputs. The good news is that the multi-billion company will provide repair to your unresponsive device. Earlier on this problem was considered to be a destruction of the logic board and the only way to get it fixed was to buy a replacement unit.
For users who think their iPhone 6 Plus has the symptom described above, they can either contact Apple or take their smartphones to a nearby Apple retail store or Apple Authorized Service Provider for inspection.
Will give reimbursement
Still connected to the program, Apple will reimburse the iPhone 6 Plus owners who took their phones for repairs through Apple or an Apple Authorized Service Provider. For the customers who had already paid for their repairs but are yet to be refunded, make a direct request to Apple by following this link.
Apple’s Press Release over the matter
“Apple has determined that some iPhone 6 Plus devices may exhibit display flickering or Multi-Touch issues after being dropped multiple times on a hard surface and then incurring further stress on the device.
If your iPhone 6 Plus is exhibiting the symptoms noted above, is in working order, and the screen is not cracked or broken, Apple will repair your device for a service price of $149.”
But what’s important is that you cannot use this issue as a warranty because Apple has not actually acknowledged a flaw in the entire design of iPhone 6 Plus.
