GREAT NEWS for anyone who is fumbling with their iPhone 6 Plus. Apple has acknowledged the multi-touch problem and has offered fuddle-fingers the chance to get their handset sorted out for just $149.
Apple is dealing with the touch disease that affected its handsets to such an extent that people started talking about suing.
Apple has lawyers like most people have pocket fluff and toe jam, and would presumably take a different route to consumer satisfaction.
The firm suggested that the problem is a bit self-inflicted, and is probably down to the fact that people just cannot help repeatedly dropping their phones.
"Apple has determined that some iPhone 6 Plus devices may exhibit display flickering or Multi-Touch issues after being dropped multiple times on a hard surface and then incurring further stress on the device," said the Apple Multi-Touch programme information.
"If your iPhone 6 Plus is exhibiting the symptoms noted above, is in working order, and the screen is not cracked or broken, Apple will repair your device for a service price of $149."
You could buy a different phone for that, or you could stick with the iPhone and its flaky screen. If you really want to live like a Cupertino king you will need to cough up $149 and fill in some forms and that kind of thing.
Our advice is not to go through this process with a dodgy screen because that might be a huge pain in your arse.
"Apple will contact customers who may have paid for a service repair related to this issue either through Apple or an Apple Authorized Service Provider to arrange reimbursement," the firm said.
"If you have not been contacted but paid for a repair that you believe was related to this issue, please contact Apple.
"The reimbursement amount will equal the difference between the price you paid for the original service to your iPhone 6 Plus and the $149 service price."
Or you could, as we said already, just buy a different phone. µ
