You can make an appointment at one of the Apple retail stores or an authorised service provider. Any other faults are not eligible under this program.

Apple does reserve the right to “restrict or limit repair to the original country or region of purchase” and not extend the standard warranty coverage of iPhone 8.

The company is expected to launch the latest line of iPhones this month.
