Third-Party Screen Repairs No Longer Fully Void Apple Warranty
Apple informed its employees that third-party screen repairs no longer fully void iPhone warranty, as long as the problem being fixed isn’t related to the screen itself, according to a recent report. Previously, Apple didn’t conduct authorized repairs under warranty for iPhones that had a third-party display.
Over the years, some iPhone users have taken to third-party service providers to repair their phones, as the cost is lower than for Apple authorized repairs, especially if the phone is out of warranty.
Apple Stores and Apple Authorized Service Providers will now inspect devices for any fraud or tampering, and then replace the broken part or even swap out the device based on Apple’s warranty pricing.
