Apple offers free repairs for iPhone 7 devices with "No Service" bug

Apple has confirmed that a "small percentage" of iPhone 7 devices are
affected by a bug that prevents the phone from connecting to a
cellular network, instead displaying "No Service" on the status
bar. Typically, this occurs after the iPhone switches off Airplane
Mode, and is unable to re-connect to service. The company says the
problem is due to a failed component on the main logic board, and will
offer free repairs to customers experiencing the issue.

There are some restrictions, however. The affected devices, according
to Apple, must be of a specific model number depending on the region
[where] customers bought their devices. The company says these devices
were manufactured between September 2016 and February 2018, and were
sold in China, Hong Kong, Japan, Macao, and the United States.
