Apple Inc. said a “very small percentage” of iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro devices have an audio problem and pledged to repair the products for affected customers. 

The phones in question, manufactured between October 2020 and April 2021, have a defect with a component on the receiver module, Apple said on its website. The repair will be free of charge, and the problem doesn’t affect the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
