How to apply for free repair
You need first to find the serial number of the product to check the warranty status. Go to Settings > General > About> and then head to checkcoverage.apple.com and enter the serial number details and unique code.
However, iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max will not be a part of this program. The company said that the free repair program would cover the iPhone 12 or 12 Pro for two years after the first retail sale.
