Apple on Friday initiated a service program to address an iPhone X display issue that causes the device’s touchscreen to behave erratically.
The problem have been reported by users for several months, and if force restarts and factory resets did not fix it, the recommended solution was to have it checked at an Apple Store or an authorized service center.
Under the new repair program, iPhone X owners suffering from the problem will be able to have the display module of their smartphone replaced for free. However, if the iPhone X comes with any damage that makes repairs harder, such as a cracked screen, that will need to be fixed first.
Apple did not specify any information on which batch of iPhone X units comes with the faulty display module. There will be no new batches though, as the iPhone X was discontinued after the unveiling of its successors iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR.
