Apple has quietly set up an 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 on this page to see if your device qualifies for this program and further instructions on what to do take advantage of the free repairs.
