Apple has acknowledged that a small number of iPhone 8 devices contain logic boards with a manufacturing defect. The affected devices may experience unexpected restarts, a frozen screen, or won’t turn on. And to resolve this issue, Apple has launched iPhone 8 Logic Board Replacement Program, offering free logic board replacement on iPhone 8.
The company says affected iPhone 8 units were sold between September 2018 and March 2018 in Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Macau, New Zealand, and the United States. You can check if your iPhone 8 is eligible for the free repair program by using the serial checker on iPhone 8 Logic Board Replacement Program page.
If your iPhone 8 qualifies for a free logic board replacement, you can make an appointment at an Apple Retail Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider. You can also contact Apple Support for mail-in repair service. The free repair program is for iPhone 8 only, and iPhone 8 Plus or other iPhone models are not covered under this program.
