iPhone 8 Logic Board Replacement Program

Apple has determined that a very small percentage of iPhone 8 devices contain logic boards with a manufacturing defect. Affected devices may experience unexpected restarts, a frozen screen, or won't turn on. Apple will repair eligible devices, free of charge.

Affected units were sold between September 2017 and March 2018 in Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Macau, New Zealand, and the U.S.

If your iPhone 8 has an eligible serial number, Apple will repair it, free of charge. Use the serial number checker below to see if your device qualifies for this program.

Service process

Find an Apple Authorized Service Provider to have your iPhone 8 repaired. Your iPhone will be examined prior to any service to verify that it is eligible for this program.

Before service, backup your iPhone to iTunes or iCloud. Learn more about preparing your iPhone for service.

If your iPhone 8 has any damage which impairs the ability to complete the repair, such as a cracked screen, that issue will need to be resolved prior to the service. In some cases, there may be a cost associated with the additional repair.

Additional Information

Apple may restrict or limit repair to the original country or region of purchase.

This Apple program doesn't extend the standard warranty coverage of the iPhone 8.

The program covers affected iPhone 8 devices for 3 years after the first retail sale of the unit.
