Apple‘s all the time been actually strict to disclaim any sort of service or restore in terms of iPhones with third-celebration elements. Now, it appears to have relaxed this coverage, and can enable repairs for iPhones with aftermarket batteries at its Genius Bars and Apple licensed service suppliers internationally.
French weblog iGeneration was the primary to report this improvement yesterday, and MacRumors subsequently obtained inner paperwork that confirmed the information. This can be a large win for Apple product homeowners, as they’ll now get their devices fastened at a certified service middle, even after changing their batteries at a 3rd-get together restore store, or with off-model batteries on their very own.
As per MacRumor’s report, service facilities are instructed to disregard the third-get together battery, if the issue shouldn’t be associated to it. And if the battery‘s defective, they’re allowed to exchange it.
Whereas Apple nonetheless doesn’t enable repairs for iPhones with aftermarket logic boards, microphones, quantity buttons, and lightning connectors, this can be a welcome change.
