Beware of iPhone X screen failure, 13-inch MacBook hard drive problem

Another change is that only Apple authorized resellers can now list Apple products on Amazon.

Apple has announced that it has found issues affecting some of its iPhone X and 13-inch MacBook Pro products, and said the company would fix them free of charge. None of these products technically compete one-on-one with Amazon's - the Fire tablets are geared to the mass market while the HomePod is a notable omission in this list.

Apple Inc. and Amazon.com Inc., two of the world's most valuable technology companies, struck a deal to get the newest iPhones into the hands of Amazon customers. In other worldwide markets, Amazon might directly carry Apple products on its websites.

Apple typically offers an easy way to identify whether you may have the faulty part, such as with a range of serial numbers, though it didn't this time. The new deal hopes to improve the quality of the products sold on Amazon at standard pricing.

'We look forward to expanding our assortment of Apple and Beats products globally'.

There's no word on when these listings will go live, but CNET says that listings from independent sellers will be removed from the site after January 4.

The company said it only affects the original iPhone X, which has been superseded by the iPhone XS and XR released this autumn. Apple representatives did not immediately respond to a request for further comment on the deal. This is because the device is a competitor to Amazon's category leading Echo devices. That may sound tiny compared to Amazon, but it's impressive when you consider Apple is selling a very limited selection of products.

One Apple product that you won't find on Amazon is the Home Pod smart speaker.

Amazon said on Friday it would begin selling the most-recent iPhone, iPad, Mac computer, Apple Watch and Apple TV models on its website, along with branded accessories and headphones from Apple's Beats subsidiary.

This could wind up being a big win for Apple, since using Amazon as an official channel for sales puts its devices in front of a ton of people.
