Im curious as to how many people here have encountered the captioned subject matter, and know and feel that their right to warranty or service had been taken away from them by the insertion of fine print, like liquid damage ( which in itself is laughable being these devices are being sold on the basis of being and as advertised, ”water resistant” phones) Essentially it would interesting to know if there are enough people in the Philippines to join together in representing as a class, this serious issue. Read: https://www.wired.com/2013/04/iphone-warranty-flap/ If Apple knows it us having battery issues for iphones 6 and later, and issues a corresponding recall or discounted service to remedy whether the unit is 1 year or younger, or if extended warranty is purchased, then why must they try to raise other unrelated variables to preclude them from willfully living up to their responsibility or commitment to service or remedy the fact? ASSUMING and precluding cheaters of the world that purposely abuse and commit such willful acts to take advantage of Apple. if you research well enough, Apple is very careful to know in which countries Consumers have Protection from existing laws; tantamount to saying they will act according to local laws only. The USA has very strong consumer laws that are acted and enforceable, But unfortunately we in the PH may be treated like 3rd class consumers in the eyes of Apple and their Service Providers. A consumer protection law does exist, but not easily enforceable, and time and resource consuming for the normal Juan de la cruz, despite the hefty price tag of Apple products. This is a sad fact, and i wish Apple will change this practice otherwise i do not believe Steve Jobs would be proud. Apple is declining relative to others and their after sales tactics are not helping reverse this course, if not, it is adding to their decline. any thoughts on the matter? Who’s in.
