Apple discovered that some of its iPhone 8 devices have a defective logic board that prevents the phones from working properly. The logic board houses the phone’s main electrical components, which include the memory, microprocessor, and the wireless chip.
Apple decided to issue a recall and launched a repair program for the affected products. Potentially defective units were sold from September, 2017, to March, 2018, in the United States, Australia, Hong Kong, China, Macau, India, Japan, and New Zealand. If you bought your iPhone during this period in one of these countries, it is likely that your device is affected.
The faulty iPhone 8 models may suddenly restart or freeze, or won’t turn on. In devices that do not seem to be having these issues, Digital Trends said that the symptoms of the defective logic board may possibly appear sooner or later.
