IPhone 12 release date: upcoming iPhone won't be delayed due to Coronavirus

If you're a customer whose device got sent out to a fix center, Apple should get in touch to coordinate a return.

The stores were initially meant to re-open on March 27, but the new guideline is "until further notice".

"We made every possible attempt to get people's products back to them", the spokesperson told Business Insider. They have recently reopened their stores in China, but they remain closed in other countries.

But, of all the changes that have come with the Open Beta 11 update, the most important one is the Android March Security patch. To recall, last week OnePlus rolled out the latest OxygenOS Open Beta 10 for the two devices OnePlus 7 and the OnePlus 7 Pro .

In addition, Business Insider says that Apple either called or emailed all of the customers who had left devices at stores for fix to let them know about the 2-day pickup window.

Though all Apple retail locations outside of China technically closed on March 14 in response to the novel coronavirus pandemic, the company provided customers with a two-day window to collect in-store pickups or any devices previously left for repairs. Unfortunately, if you didn't pick up your device during those days, you will have to wait until stores reopen. "There certainly are people that, for whatever reason, did not pick up their products before we closed and their products are at our stores".

Now that's all well and good, but a downside to Apple's retail store closings is that some people who left items to fix in Apple stores before the pandemic really took over have no way to get their devices back. "We have expanded our licensing policies to accommodate the personal or family health circumstances created by COVID-19, including recovery from illness, care of a sick loved one, mandatory quarantine, or child care challenges due to closure of schools". Many Apple stores in heavily affected countries are operating at a limited capacity and the production line has also been delayed due to the measures taken on the coronavirus cases. Credit Suisse Group set a $290.00 target price on shares of Apple and gave the company a "neutral" rating in a research note on Monday, March 16th.

Check Вестей.Ru showed that the restriction applies to the Russian Internet Apple store.
