Apple to fix defective iPhone 8 logic boards for free

Apple Sept. 12 event

Apple Sept. 12 event

In terms of manufacturers, Fitbit managed to impressively boost its market share year-on-year, from 8 percent back in Q2 2017 to a 21 percent slice of the pie now, which is "only" 20 percentage points behind Apple's shrinking but still comfortably dominant share.

People around the world are waiting for the Apple watch series 4. While most of Apple's iPhone hardware itself may remain the same, if this leaked image of a gold "iPhone XS" is to be believed, nixing the button will force a reckoning with the messy UX and gestural UI tangle that Apple has pushed this year. Apple is also expected to launch a third iPhone model, but this one will be cheaper, reportedly with aluminum edges instead of stainless steel and an LED display instead of OLED. September is typically the time Apple announces new products, so fans are sure to want to tune in.

On its official site, Apple has issued a warning that some models of iPhone 8 have logic boards with a defect.

The publication posted an image of an Apple Watch sporting a noticeably bigger screen thanks to severely reduced bezels. But, we are unsure, which of the three models will come with this feature. This year, Apple is expected to launch three news smartphone models that are likely to sport the iPhone X's edge-to-edge screen design, complete with the infamous "notch" for the Face ID selfie camera.

Prices for the new devices are also unclear at this point.

Apple offered scant clues to what it has in store for the presentation to take place in the Steve Jobs Theater at its spaceship campus in Cupertino.

A large-scale study into heart health among Apple Watch owners is coming to an end, with Apple informing some users who signed up that their contribution is now complete.

The website 9to5Mac is reporting a leaked "iPhone XS" design.

Even if we are talking about a few isolated incidents, Apple won't be best pleased at having to implement another fix program. While a new digital face has not been revealed yet, the analog watch face features eight complications around the time display and within the watch hands. Furthermore, the images suggest that Apple might introduce a new shade of the gold color.
