Apple will reportedly allow repairs for iPhones with third-party batteries

Apple will reportedly allow repairs for iPhones with third-party batteries Apple's always been really strict to deny any kind of service or repair when it comes to iPhones with third-party components. Now, it seems to have relaxed this policy, and will allow repairs for iPhones with aftermarket batteries at its Genius Bars and Apple authorized service providers internationally. French blog iGeneration was the first to report this development yesterday, and MacRumors subsequently obtained internal documents that confirmed the news.

  • LG (2019 OLED, NanoCell SM9X series, NanoCell SM8X series, UHD UM7X series)
  • Samsung (QLED Series -- 2019 and 2018)
  • Samsung (4 Series, 5 Series, 6 Series, 7 Series, 8 Series -- 2019 and 2018)
  • Sony (A9G Series, Z9G Series, X850G Series X950G Series)
  • Vizio D-Series (2018),  P-Series (2018, 2017 and 2016), P-Series Quantum (2019 and 2018), Quantum X (2019)
  • Vizio M-Series (2018, 2017 and 2016), M-Series Quantum (2019)
  • Vizio E-Series (2018, 2017 and 2016 UHD models), V-Series (2019)

How will AirPlay 2 compete?

There's no doubt Apple is late to the wireless multiroom audio party, which has been a part of the audio landscape for 15 years starting with Sonos, Squeezebox and Roku. Google's Chromecast and Amazon's Alexa system have had multiroom audio support since the summer of 2017.

As a result, Apple is several years and multiple audio products behind the leaders. AirPlay 2 helps it catch up, particularly for owners of the HomePod, but the company still has some ground to gain. However, the ability to use AirPlay on TVs should be a boon to people who don't have an Apple TV and yet have an extensive iTunes library.
