+Upon receiving your device, a thorough inspection and a series of tests will be done before any work commences. We will look at and test battery function, ports, camera, controls, etc. We will look at and record any evidence of corrosion associated with liquid damage, and also check to see if the LSIs (Liquid Spill Indicators) have been tripped. We cannot be held responsible for issues or damages that were pre-existing, either known or unknown to you at the time we receive the device. If we find an issue that we feel may impact or disable the functionality of your device, we will make you aware.

+While we strive to properly diagnose each device correctly, sometimes unforeseen issues arise. If your device needs additional parts or service that exceed the original quote, you will be notified and will need to authorize any further repair(s) and cost(s) that may be needed. You will not be billed for any parts or service that you have not approved. All parts and services (other than liquid damaged devices) have a 90 day parts & labor warranty associated with them. We will not, however, honor the warranty if the device has been obviously mishandled, abused or accidentally damaged/dropped. Your warranty does not cover any future instances of cracked/broken glass (iOS), under any circumstance.

+If we receive your device and it has evidence of liquid damage internally (corrosion, burn marks, etc.), Rotten Apples cannot and will not be held liable for any future issues that your device may have, independent of the repair requested. Liquid damage is known to cause damage, slowly, over time. It may work fine upon leaving the shop, but that does not always mean it will work the same, or at all, in 2 weeks or 2 months. For this reason, we cannot be responsible for any failures that your liquid damaged device may have in the future.
