SMIRNAS, 28 Aug 2021imagine if Android did this,, whole media gonna burn it for days LMFAO..android is the OS. You people need to compare Apple to other companies and not pit it against EVERY Android OEMs..

You people ALWAYS pick the best from each android OEMs and compare them against Apple and iOS. As if all you android users share the same user experience. We all know that’s not the case.

They are doing the right thing and it does not mean major issues with the series. Android OEMs will no even bother as NONE of their lines comes even close to the iPhone 12.

I mean, if it's just a "small percentage of devices" then why even start a replacement program? Just do a regular warranty repair, like with every other repair.
And if they messed up and put a defective earpiece, they should say so and make a recall.
What Apple is doing here is just a show "look how good we treat our customers, we are the best", instead of apologizing for messing up.

imagine if Android did this,, whole media gonna burn it for days

It works, you're just holding it wrong. For correct usage instructions, buy the pro max model first

My S20 FE 5G display had phantom inputs and was never fixed. No one listened to the Samsung forum. Stop acting like a salesman.

i think the news about apple replacing some part again,
like home button and jack in the past

Apple will be like its for the safety of the buyer's ears, cost $500..and people will believe that xD

Whaaaat? Poor build quality when the kids assembling it isn't getting paid? How is this possible, Tim Apple?!

Also, typical gadget blog RDF denial that this is the first time we hear about it. (No pun intended)

all these gates aside, it's all about the bills for Appel

  • Hmmm

I thought this issue has been reported by users since last year. "Only small percentage of iPhone 12 devices have an issue" is an understatement if it managed to make Apple resorting to free repair.

Apple has no quality after Steve Jobs.
