    My best friend, who I introduced to iPhone, from blackberry, has had a 6S die on her. After 17 months of ownership. Apple Liverpool wants £375 "out of Warranty repair".
    This iPhone has been babied, one owner from new.
    Disgraceful.

    my iphone 5s worked great for me.
    But I had to use my warranty for my 6s...twice.
    1st: dead pixels on screen after 10 months of ownership
    2nd: battery doesn't hold charge after a year

    8 and 8 Plus can can pre-order though cell carriers, but iPhone X just got approved, I guess the "X" will be available to pre order from cell carriers as well, given time. Can't imagine why Apple would restrict this through Apple store only. That could also happen initially... (like , control etc) but then branch out to carriers selling anyway after

    12 million for a worldwide release is not constrained? And who knows what the manufacturing rate is now.

    Future Gorilla Glue sales were dependent on this. Either that, or call it iPhone Jack-In-The-BOX. "Surprise! Here's your battery."

    So you’d rather spend £900 on the Pixel 2 XL or £970 on the Note 8 both then?? Does Google supply he new Pixel 2 in the UK with a free 2 year warranty, or does Samsung with the Note 8??
    Or you could just buy the iPhone X from John Lewis and get a 2 year warranty for no extra cost.....

    Coming soon to homes (and some basements) near you & me...


    ...subbing in ordering iPhone X for Comicon tickets of course. But I pretty much picture this kind of scene playing out all over the world at the big moment.

    Who dares to tell me it's not like that where you are (give or take 2-4 other friends being there too)?

    I always learn any phone will be constraint... It's impossible to "make enough" and never have bottlenecks with the current load... Unless you hire more people,,, build more factories etc and that's all assuming the constraint isn't the supplier itself/chip maker etc..

    that 1 year warranty is an international one. In many countries we have at least 2 years

    John Lewis do indeed offer a 2 year warranty as the afore mentioned do, sans apple.
    However JLP take up to 28 days to repair iPhone as we have recently found out, to our dismay....still waiting 3 1/2 weeks on.

    Note: you don't actually give a phone to the FCC, and they don't do the testing. Nobody wants to waste time with something that might fail.

    So before production begins, you've already paid a certified lab run all the necessary tests and you've passed. At that point you're virtually guaranteed to get certified.

    Those results are given to a TCB (Telecommunication Certification Body), which is sometimes co-located with the lab (but not allowed to be the same party) for convenience. The TCB looks over the tests and has the authority to issue an FCC certification. I believe that you can request that certification publication wait until a certain date if you wish.

    The upshot is that there's no mystery involved as to whether or not a device will be certified. All that is worked out ahead of time, and the only thing that could change that is if a design change occurred after testing was done.

    We have an original, launch day iPhone from June 2007 that still works. We have 2 people here using the 6s, over 2 years old each, both still work. My inlaws have the 5s and the 5c and those are 3 and 4 years old... still work.

    Anecdotally, I can tell you I have had ONE iPhone quit on me out of warranty, but the Apple Store replaced it for me free. This was somewhere around iPhone 4S, I do believe.

    I just buy the AC+ because I resell my phones and people prefer to have it available if they need it.

    This quashes the idea where some people had suggested the FCC was holding up the iPhone X launch.

    What excuses are left?
