How to find out if your device qualifies?

  • Get the serial number for your device. It does not matter if you do not have the receipt. Apple will honour it even if you purchased it off eBay. (Assuming it is all original Parts)

  • Be nice to the Phone agents. (They get abused online a lot)
  • Understand your unit may not qualify because they fixed the issue with your model.
