My warranty expired about 2-3 weeks ago. Since then it has developed a problem where it loops on boot for several hours and then starts up normally. When it is on everything works but the phone app. It freezes the phone and forces a reboot where it gets stuck in the loop. I have tried numerous methods of recovery. DFU Mode, recovery mode, iOS 10, iOS 11, iOS 11 beta etc. I cannot figure out for the life of me how to fix it. FWIW I have had issues with the phone since I had it. I've brought it to apple once or twice for hissing and performance issues. Each time they just reset settings and sent me on my way. iPhone 7 AT&T 256GB My question is, does Apple make exceptions for out of warranty service?
