Joe Rossignol, MacRumors:
iPhones that have undergone any third-party screen repair now qualify for warranty coverage, as long as the issue being fixed does not relate to the display itself, according to an internal memo distributed by Apple today. MacRumors confirmed the memo’s authenticity with multiple sources.
Previously, an iPhone with a third-party display was not eligible for any authorized repairs under warranty.
Apple is currently fighting right-to-repair legislation in Nebraska, but they have just one retail store in the state and one Premium Service Provider. It may be limited to one state at the moment, but their decision would have repercussions across every tech company’s hardware line. This move should serve to minimize arguments that could be made by the state with regards to service availability.
