Take Help From Apple
Apple has introduced iPhone 11 Display Module Replacement Program in Australia for those iPhone owners who are facing touch screen problem or in the display module. Apple notes that the iPhone 11 modules manufactured between November 2019 and May 2020 may face these touchscreen issues and the company is offering free service to eligible customers. The company has put up a support page on its website to help affected customers find out if they are eligible for a replacement.
Under this iPhone 11 Display Module Replacement Program Apple has introduced an ‘iPhone 11 Display Module Replacement Program for Touch Issues’ that will provide free service to iPhone 11 owners who have a glitchy touchscreen. As mentioned above iPhone 11 models manufactured between November 2019 and May 2020 may be affected by this issue and if this applies to your phone, head over to Apple support page where you will have to enter your phone’s serial number to check.
For this use the Apple Look Up Tool on its website where you can simply enter your iPhone serial number to see if it’s covered under the program.
To find your iPhone serial number:
- Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
- Tap General.
- Tap About.
- Your serial number should appear in the top section.
- Tap and hold on the serial number until a “Copy” option appears.
- Tap “Copy” to copy the serial number to your clipboard.
If you open Apple’s replacement program page directly in Safari on your iPhone you can then paste your serial number right into the appropriate field.
Note that even if you see your iPhone 11 is included after entering your serial number, it doesn’t mean that your device will necessarily have this problem, as not every iPhone is affected. Apple won’t replace your iPhone 11 unless it’s actually exhibiting the problem.
If you are having problems with a non-responsive touchscreen, however, and your iPhone 11 is on the list of eligible serial numbers, you can take it to an Apple Store or an Apple Authorized Service Provider to have it verified and serviced free of charge.
Also you can contact Apple Support by phone to arrange to have it mailed in, and if you have AppleCare+ you may also qualify for Apple’s Express Replacement Service to have a replacement iPhone 11 sent back to you more quickly.

If you find your iPhone 11 on the list and it’s not encountering the problem, there’s no need to worry about it just yet, as the program will cover affected iPhone 11 devices from the date of their original purchase
