Apple will fix a “very small percentage” of iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro devices. According to the American Technology Group, some users are experiencing audio issues during the call, which means that people cannot be heard. Apple starts a special repair program. The issue will be fixed for free on affected phones.
Apple hasn’t revealed exactly how many devices are experiencing issues. It’s also not clear how much money the company will allocate for repairs. The phones will only be manufactured between October last year and April this year. Apple has announced a repair program quite often in recent years. Anyone involved in problems can report them afterwards. For example, last year it was announced that the company would replace broken iPhone 11 touch screens for free.
The Cupertino company is addressing the audio issue with the iPhone 12 before another generation of iPhones are released. Bloomberg News recently reported on the basis of informed sources that the new models that Apple is likely to announce next month differ mainly in the field of cameras from their predecessors. Of course, the devices will also get a faster processor and new screens, but in terms of appearance, the hardware is largely comparable to the iPhone 12.
