Apple admits touchscreen fault with iPhone X

Apple hadn't previously responded to reports of problems with iPhone X screens, but it had opened similar replacement programs in the past for older iPhone models with screen issues, including the iPhone 6. In a notice about the faulty part, posted to the company's website Friday, Apple also said the screen may even respond when you're not touching it too.

In the case of the iPhone X problems, these are related to a component tied to the display.

The £999 handset, which was released last November and discontinued in September, has been plagued by complaints from users that its touch screen was not working properly for several months. This time they cover the iPhone X and 13-inch MacBook Pro. Canadian devices are on the list of affected countries, according to Apple. You can either make an appointment with a service provider or your local Apple Store, or you can contact Apple Support to find out about mailing in your phone for service.

The only point it has tried to convey is that it will not tolerate any cheating in its game or hacking of the server. Until then, it's time to enjoy the core and authentic gameplay that Fallout 76 offers, at least while we can.

If you believe your phone suffers from any touchscreen problems, you may bring it to Apple or an Apple Authorized Service Provider for a free "display module". Apple also reassured everyone that these issues are only present on some iPhone X models, and the Xs, Xs Max, and Xr are not affected. The issue impacts some units sold between June 2017 and June 2018. The same warning is provided for the 13-inch non Touch Bar MacBook Pro, which may experience SSD failure and data loss. Yeah? Because you might be eligible for a free screen replacement from Apple.

You can check your MacBook Pro's serial number to see if your laptop is affected.
