Called a “Visual/Mechanical Inspection Guide” (VMI) a request covers a iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6S, 6S Plus, 7, and 7 Plus.

The forms of repairs that Apple covers underneath a guaranty use includes waste underneath arrangement potion or pixel anomaly, a misalignment of a FaceTime camera foam, or a singular hairline moment to a front potion though an impact point. The VMI records that inclination with these forms of impairments are lonesome regardless of any random or potion damage.
