My iPhone 6 Plus had a problem with the screen, and Apple replaced it out of warranty.

You should try to submit a support request online via their website and they should be able to give you a response as to whether there will be a charge. In my case, I got a response within the day and they sent out a courier bag the next day to collect my defective iPhone.

IMO take it back to the retailer. I assume you have through a process of elimination identified the fault, and if it is the port given it a good clean out of dust and crud. Apple don't do repairs, if the claim is accepted they will simply swap it out for one already refurbished and tested. They will need to send it away, might take a couple of weeks.

Apple automatically cover all nz purchased Apple devices for two years, under consumer law, so interesting that you say it is 23 months old but Apple won't cover it.
Pm me the serial number and I can confirm the purchase date for you, that Apple have on file.
If your invoice from spark says otherwise you can provide that to Apple as proof of purchase and they will update their records.

I think we need to close this thread - apparently it's a registry issue with my PC.

 

When I connect to PC it cannot recognise the device. "An iphone has been detected but not recognised. Please disconnect and reconnect ..."

Was it purchased for personal use? If so, just mention the CGA, as by default they told me that they have a 2 year CGA warranty.

I would check it via another PC to be sure. It could still be a faulty or dirty port.

Good point. Itunes has been dodgy ever since I the laptop updated to win 10 AE and me forcing a roll back to win 10 not AE (did this a couple of times as it kept updating with no warning).

Would you not test this on another computer first before hand?
