Apple reveals hardware issues with iPhone X, MacBook Pro

Apple has reportedly found some issues affecting some of its iPhone X and 13-inch MacBook pro products and said the company would fix them free of charge, Reuters reported.

Apple said displays on iPhone X, which came out in 2017, may experience touch issues due to a component failure, adding it would replace those parts for free.

For the 13-inch MacBook Pro computers, it said an issue may result in data loss and failure of the storage drive. Apple said it would service those affected drives.

Only a limited number of 128GB and 256GB solid-state drives in 13-inch MacBook Pro units sold between June 2017 and June 2018 were affected, Apple said on its website.

According to the company said it only affects the original iPhone X, which has been supe rseded by the iPhone XS and XR released recently.

Last year, Apple began a massive battery replacement program after it conceded that a software update intended to help some iPhone models deal with aging batteries slowed down the performance of the phones. Earlier this year, Apple also revealed that a component failure in a limited number of MacBook Pros has caused built-in battery to expand, and has said it will offer worldwide free replacement for such batteries.
