Apple admits there’s a fault with my iPhone 7 but I still have to pay

My new iPhone 7 is struck down with ‘loop disease’ but it
will cost me £300-plus for a repair

My iPhone 7 is less than two years old but has developed
what has been dubbed “loop disease” – it continually refuses
to start up, and will only display the Apple logo. Apple sent me to
a store (an hour away) and I have spent several hours on the phone
trying to resolve this
. Apple has accepted it is a
manufacturing issue, but will not do anything about it. It says my
only option is to pay £300-plus for a
repair/replacement.

For anyone else not having a working mobile would be
hugely inconvenient but, for me, it is a disaster as I use it to
control my
hearing aid. The problem is, I bought
the handset “as new” from a friend who was sent it after making
an insurance claim.
