Apple: Getting an iPhone replacement under warranty

Dec 9, 2018 9 Comments

I’ve got one week left on my Apple care warranty - what can I report, if anything, to receive a replacement phone?

(Nothing *really* in need here, just want to upgrade to full replacement in this window if possible)

    You’re joking right? Apple is not going to replace your phone unless they really need to. Good luck with your scam.

    Ok, first that comes to mind :
    A) Maybe drop it in pure alcohol while powered on and CPU busy. Water-sensitive marks may not go red, but no guarantees.

    B) Put some transparent glue inside charging port and claim it does not charge

    I like option B better. Good luck and let us know the outcome ;)

    They’ll just replace your phone with a terribly shitty refurbished one covered by a 90 day warranty. Stick with what’s been working.
