Apple has determined that some units of the iPhone 7 are displaying “No Service” in the status bar even when cellular coverage is available due to a failed component on the logic board. Apple has now started a repair program to fix affected iPhones for free.
The affected iPhones were sold in China, Hong Kong, Japan, Macao, and the United States. Here are the affected model numbers (look on the back for the model number):
If your iPhone 7 has one of those model numbers and is suffering from this problem, contact Apple support to schedule a free repair. If you’ve already paid to resolve this problem, Apple will contact you via email to arrange for a refund by the end of March 2018. If for some reason you don’t receive that email, contact Apple support to ask for reimbursement.
