Hey Lifehacker, I saw yesterday’s question about warranty repairs for older iPhones, and I have a related issue. I have an iPhone 4s, and the contract doesn’t finis until April 2015. If Apple stops making the iPhone 4s when the “iPhone 6″ comes out later this year, how can I get a replacement if the phone stops working under warranty?
Hey Lifehacker, I purchased an iPhone 5 when it came out in Australia on a Telstra plan back in 2012. Unfortunately, something seems to be off with the charging contacts (perhaps they’ve been eroded away) now because whenever I connect my Lightning cable, I need to wiggle it around and get it just so in order to get a charge going. I’m worried that the problem will continue to get worse so I was wondering if there was some king of statutory warranty I could hold Apple or Telstra to in order to have my iPhone fixed?
So many people want to go to Google I/O that Google is selecting from interested participants at random. Now Apple is adopting the same approach for its annual Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) event.
Apple announced last October that its iWork suite would be free for new iPhone, iPad and Mac buyers — but not for existing owners. But as one Australian buyer discovered, Apple’s advertising of the products as “free” in some contexts means you might be able to score a free copy under Australian consumer law even with an older device.
If you purchased any music from iTunes between 2003 and 2009, you downloaded tracks with digital rights management (DRM) embedded in them, which means you can’t easily transfer them. Apple has since stopped using DRM, but old files may still include it. Wired shows how to update your music library with the new, DRM-free versions.
