iPhone Ban: Apple is going to stop selling the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 in Germany, reports MacRumors. This has to do with a ruling in the country concerning the devices infringing on Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) modem patents. The tech company says that it will be appealing the ban and will continue to sell other iPhone models in the country. This includes its newest smartphones, the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR.
iPad Bend: Apple has confirmed that some 2018 iPad Pro tablets come bent, The Verge notes. According to AAPL, this can happen as part of the manufacturing process. The company doesn’t consider the bend a flaw and says it shouldn’t impede functionality. Despite this, customers can switch out for a new tablet if theirs has a bend in it, but must due so within 14 days of purchase.
Battery Replacement: Anyone that has yet to replace their iPhone batter can still do so, reports 9to5Mac. The battery replacement program isn’t set to end until the end of the year. Until then, customers can replace the batteries in their AAPL smartphones for just $29. After that, these prices will increase back to their normal amounts.
