The 13-inch MacBook Pro seems to be affected by the same quality problems discovered with the iPhone X as well. Apple has not confirmed how many devices are impacted by this problem.

According to the Bloomberg report, iPhone X users had been complaining about touch issues online for months. The company says that the problem can present itself as a display failing to respond to touches, or acting as if it had been touched when in fact it hadn't.

Apple has finally confirmed that some iPhone X units have display issues. That being said, the latest iPhones have also seen a few issues since launch such as the XS and XS Max not charging when the Lightning cable is plugged in and the selfie camera "Beautygate" issue, both of which have been quietly fixed by Apple through software update.

Any non-Touch Bar 13-inch MacBook Pro sold between June 2017 and June 2018 might have a problem with the hard drive.

Acknowledging that there is a problem, Apple has announced a free display fix program which customers can take advantage of if they have handsets with the issue. Your iPhone will be examined prior to any service to verify that it is eligible for this program. In other words, you will have to pay for a new screen separately, which might cancel out the need for a free display module replacement. You can either make an appointment with a service provider or your local Apple Store, or you can contact Apple Support to find out about mailing in your phone for service.

Apple has a support website that you can visit to confirm if your system is eligible for replacement; the process is as simple as entering in your serial number into a web form.

JP Morgan also had some bearish data to disseminate about Apple.

This program does not affect 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar or older 13-inch MacBook Pro models.
