A free repair program from Apple will involve replacing broken logic boards on iPhone 8 smartphones.

The company launched the program on Aug. 31, reports 9to5Mac, to address issues on iPhone 8 devices, including unexpected restarts, frozen screens and failure to turn on. Eligible devices will get their devices furnished with a new logic board free of charge, according to program page.


Targeted devices are those sold between September 2017 and March 2018 in Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Macau, New Zealand and the US. This program will cover devices for the first three years after being bought from a retailer.

Owners of a faulty iPhone 8 can get in touch with a local Apple store or an Apple authorized service provider. Customers may also opt for a mail-in service where the iPhone 8 is mailed out for repairs then returned once service is completed.

The free service may be restricted to the region or country where the iPhone 8 was sold. On another note, owners are also advised to back up their data just in case, since the iPhone’s logic board is basically what makes the smartphone operate.  /ra
