The issues could arise "due to a component that might fail on the display module", Apple said.

The screens on affected phones may not respond correctly to touch or it could react even without being touched, the Cupertino, California-based company said.

Apple on Friday quietly announced free service programs aimed at fixing endemic problems with two of its most high-profile and expensive devices, the iPhone X and the MacBook Pro. Apple also notes that this issue is limited to the 2017 iPhone X; presumably, newer models like the iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR are not impacted. You can either make an appointment with a service provider or your local Apple Store, or you can contact Apple Support to find out about mailing in your phone for service. The company says that MacBook Pro models affected by this issue were sold between June 2017 and June 2018. The same warning is provided for the 13-inch non Touch Bar MacBook Pro, which may experience SSD failure and data loss. As with any repairs where your device will be undergoing major surgery, Apple suggests that you perform an iTunes or iCloud backup before bringing your iPhone X in for service.

As with every fix program, Apple says you can take an affected iPhone X into an Apple Store, or an authorized Apple fix shop, or send it to Apple direct in the mail. Yeah? Because you might be eligible for a free screen replacement from Apple.

Apple typically offers an easy way to identify whether you may have the faulty part, such as with a range of serial numbers, though it didn't this time.
