Apple offers free repair for two products with quality issues

On Friday, Apple announced that two of its products -  the iPhone X and the 13-inch MacBook Pro (non Touch Bar) -  have known hardware issues.

At the same time apple announced that customers with eligible devices can have both issues fixed for free at an Apple retail store or with an Apple Authorized Service Provider. Display modules will be replaced for free for IphoneX. A similar touchscreen issue occurred in 2016 with the iPhone 6 Plus. To repair the problem back then, however, Apple charged it's customers $149 at the time. The 13-inch MacBook Pro (non Touch Bar) sold between June 2017 and June 2018 might have an issue that causes data loss or drive failure. They will be serviced for free as well.

To know if your MacBook Pro needs to be serviced, you'll need to enter your device's serial number on Apple's support page. No explains or justification was offered by the company for this quality issue. On the other part, Apple has signaled disappointing demand for the new iPhone XR and possibly will halt plans for additional production lines dedicated to the relatively cost-effective model. But Apple reported another strong quarter of profits, increased to $11.52 billion and soon can be worth more than $1 trillion.
