Apple to repair iPhone 7s with 'no service' bug for free

  Apple to repair iPhone 7s with 'no service' bug for free Today Apple announced it's launching a repair program for a "small percentage" of iPhone 7 owners who are affected by a "no service" issue. Late last year MacRumors said Apple was investigating the problem and appeared ready to replace affected devices, which would display "No service" in their status bar even when signal was clearly available. If your unit is on the list then Apple will fix it free of charge (within two years of the original purchase date). If you've already paid for a repair then look out for an email about reimbursement, and if it doesn't show up then give Apple a call.

A notch housing the camera and other sensors has become the rage among Android makers, but you may not have to live with it, TechRadar reports. LG said earlier this year it was switching things up for its 2018 phone release schedule, and there is speculation that the G 7 could appear some time in June.

If you've got your eye on LG's new phone but aren't a fan of its much-rumored iPhone X-like notch, this might please you: It appears to be optional.

Ever since Apple released its iPhone X in November with a black notch above the screen that houses the phone's front-facing camera and other sensors, a gaggle of Android phone makers has been rumored to be adopting the design. LG is expected to join the fray with its new phone -- likely to be called the G7.

But the folks at TechRadar have been tipped off to a vanishing act performed by the notch. According to a video they reviewed, the feature can apparently be turned off through the handset's software settings, allowing you to hide it behind a consistent screen bezel.

Apple’s upcoming iPhone X sequel may have new design with a smaller notch

  Apple’s upcoming iPhone X sequel may have new design with a smaller notch As it turns out, the notch on the iPhone X proved to be far less of a divisive issue than initially anticipated. That said, Apple is reportedly interested in making the notch even smaller on future iterations of the iPhone. According to a new investor note from analysts at Barclays (originally obtained via MacRumors), the TrueDepth camera system that powers Face ID will reportedly be smaller on upcoming iPhone models. Consequently, the notch itself will occupy a smaller footprint on the front of the device.
