When the iPhone X (aka iPhone 10) was released last year, confusingly so was the iPhone 8.
However, despite Apple’s second round of inconsistent numbering (remember them releasing the Apple Watch, then releasing a new one the following year and calling it the Series 1?) the iPhone 8 turned out to be a pretty good phone. It was popular, a familiar design and aside from FaceID, had all the cool features of the aforementioned Golden Child, iPhone X.
But the honeymoon didn’t last and while the iPhone X with it’s seemingly hated notch (something all mobile phone makers are now copying) went from strength to strength, some of the iPhone 8 models have developed a serious flaw.
Unexpected restarts, will not turn on or freeze are some of the complaints that have resulted in Apple opening up a repair program.
Even if your iPhone 8 isn’t showing any of these signs, it is worth checking to see if it is eligible and if so, get it repaired.
