It appears that a “small percentage” of iPhone 7 devices are displaying the No Service notice despite having cellular coverage. And if your handset is one of those affected, Apple got you covered.
According to Apple, the iPhone 7 smartphones that were manufactured between September 2016 up to February and were sold in the US, China, Japan, Hong Kong, and Macao were the ones that were affected.
The company is offering the free fix to three model numbers. If you got your device in the US (Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands Included), Macao, and Hong Kong, then check the back of your handset if the model number is A1660.
Meanwhile, the Japanese iPhone 7s should have the model number A1779. And lastly, model numbers A1660 and A1780 are for China.
The issue is said to have originated from the device’s main logic board. So if you’re one of the unlucky ones and your iPhone 7 has the issue, you can head on to Apple’s website to have your free fix.
But if you already paid someone to have it repaired, Apple will reimburse you the money you spent.
