Finally, Apple now have made its move to have a new repair program for the plagued iPhone 6 Plus hardware malfunction we already know as the “touch disease”. For those who don’t know about it yet, the touch disease makes the touchscreen of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus specifically completely useless. This shows a thin grey line at the top of the display so it’s so easy to tell if your phone has it.
Though Apple already declared that it’s not a lack on their part but for the users who drops their iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus which causes this malfunctions. They don’t even want to repair these defective units for free and for those who would want it fixed, just pay Apple $149. That might not sit too well with the iPhone owners who filed class action lawsuits against Apple over the touch disease issue.
Apple says on its website,
“Apple has determined that some iPhone 6 Plus devices may exhibit display flickering or Multi-Touch issues after being dropped multiple times on a hard surface and then incurring further stress on the device. If your iPhone 6 Plus is exhibiting the symptoms noted above, is in working order, and the screen is not cracked or broken, Apple will repair your device for a service price of $149.”
Apple says those who have already paid for a service repair related to the issue are eligible for reimbursement equal to the difference between the original service repair cost and the new $149 price. The company says it has begun contacting those who have already paid for such a repair, but urges customers who think they’re affected to reach out and contact Apple Technical Support to expedite the process.
