The news: Just before the end of the day on Friday, Apple introduced a new display repair program for certain iPhone 11 models.
- Apple says that some iPhone 11 models have been found to exhibit issues with the display module, which can cause them to be unresponsive to touch
- Affected iPhone 11 units were manufactured between November 2019 and May 2020
Our take: When Apple says “that a small percentage of iPhone 11 displays” are affected, I always wonder what that percentage is that determines the launch of a repair program. Apple has a serial number checker tool on the replacement program page, so go see if you’re in the affected pool.
