Apple admits iPhone X 'ghost touch' screen issue, offers free fix

The latest versions of several Apple product lines will be available for sale on Amazon globally as part of a new agreement between the tech giants, according to a report Friday.

A new deal between Apple and Amazon is about to make it even harder.

Separately, Apple's also announced an SSD storage replacement affecting the non-Touch Bar version of the 13-inch MacBook Pro sold between June 2017 and June 2018. Previously, Amazon sold only older model iPhones.

In 2016, Apple filed a lawsuit against Amazon alleging that the online retailer was selling counterfeit Apple products on its web store.

There's no word on when these listings will go live, but CNET says that listings from independent sellers will be removed from the site after January 4.

Third-party merchants will be allowed to sell as they have been through the holiday season, while Amazon will add Apple products to its official Apple at Amazon page.

I think he's earned the right to that cap over a period of over 10 years, six major tournaments and being our record goalscorer. I understand that has caused debate but for me it is a small way of appreciating what he has given to his country.

Apple also noted that if the iPhone X owner has already replaced the screen prior to the replacement programme, he/she is entitled to get a refund.

The company said it only affects the original iPhone X, which has been superseded by the iPhone XS and XR released this autumn.

Apple did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment.

But this deal does not include all the products from Apple and an example of one such device would be the Apple HomePod.

The world's largest e-commerce company said it will start selling dramatically more of Apple's devices.

"Amazon is constantly working to enhance the customer experience, and one of the ways we do this is by increasing selection of the products we know customers want", Amazon said in a statement about the change. This is because the device is a competitor to Amazon's category leading Echo devices.
