Apple rumored to unofficially repair or replace Hurricane damaged iPhone and iPad units

So let’s say that thanks to Hurricane Harvey your Apple iPhone or Apple iPad sustained serious water damage that basically destroyed one or both devices. Despite the IP67 certification rating on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, Apple has made it clear that water damage is not covered by its warranty. So under normal circumstances, the flooding in Texas would normally lead to water logged iPhone units that would not be replaced by Apple, even if they are supposed to withstand a submersion to 3.3-feet for as long as 30-minutes.

But that doesn’t mean that Apple isn’t going out of its way to make life easier for those affected by the Hurricane. While not considered official policy, Apple is said to be offering free repairs to its devices that took on water and were damaged as a result. Apple is also believed to be offering free repairs to its devices that were damaged due to an impact that took place as a result of the Hurricane.

Apple iPad Pro versus Microsoft Surface Pro

Apple is making the iPad more like a PC, even as Microsoft is making Windows more like an iPad.

Something funny is happening in the age-old battle of Apple versus Microsoft.

Each is trying to get its products to be more like the other’s, but taking a different route to get there.
Both companies want the same thing: To be the platform of choice for people trying to be creative and get work done, even as the very definition of “computer” grows increasingly fluid. But the end result is that we’re in a weird situation where Microsoft is trying to make Windows work more like Apple iOS, while Apple tries to make iOS work more like Windows.

The race is on to see which can complete its transition first.

Microsoft’s biggest advantage is the iPad’s Achilles heel. The Surface devices, except for the Surface laptop, ship with a full version of Windows 10 and offer users access to full desktop programs. Owners can use the version of Office they already have, as well as the desktop version of the Google Chrome browser, the Steam game store, and more.
