Apple can now offer iPhone X customers the ability to get their device’s Face ID system repaired without the need to swap out the entire device. As reported by MacRumors, the news came via a memo. The iPhone X was initially excluded from the list for this program.
Apple launched a program last month that allows Apple Stores and authorized repair centers to access to parts needed to repair the True Depth camera system, allowing techs to repair Face ID problems without swapping out the entire device. Initially, only the iPhone XS and later iPhones were eligible for the repairs. However, the program has been expanded to the iPhone X, meaning all Face ID-capable iPhones can now be repaired without being swapped out.
Apple has sent out Face ID repair parts to authorized service providers and Apple Stores, allowing for Face ID repairs without replacing the entire device. Repair prices can vary, depending on the service provider, location, and device.
The new repair option is not available in Argentina, Barbados, Bermuda, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Trinidad, and Tobago, Uruguay, and Venezuela. It is not known when the program might expand to these countries.
