Apple has begun an iPhone 11 repair program to address touch screen problems in a limited number of units manufactured between November 2019 and May 2020. If your touch screen has been unresponsive you may be eligible for a free replacement display module. Only the iPhone 11 is affected, not the iPhone 11 Pro or iPhone 11 Pro Max.
iPhone owners with iOS 14.3 installed are starting to get warnings when apps track their activities across other apps and websites.

Whether you are troubleshooting a HomePod or preparing the smart speaker for trade-in or sale, a factory reset might be necessary.
