Beware of iPhone X screen failure, 13-inch MacBook hard drive problem

Amazon in 2015 stopped selling the Apple TV media-streaming device that wasn't easily compatible with the e-commerce giant's video service, an example of Amazon using its clout as the world's biggest online retailer to promote products that helped push its own streaming content.

Amazon is signing a deal with Apple to expand its collection of Cupertino's hardware.

On Friday, Apple announced that two of its products - the iPhone X and the 13-inch MacBook Pro (non Touch Bar) - have known hardware issues. They will join select MacBook models on the Amazon platform. The third-parties often stock up on the new devices the day they're released at Apple Stores and Best Buy, and rush to fill the void on Amazon.

It won't be long before we see more Apple products available through Amazon. The iPhone X, which was continued this year after Apple launched the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR, is the only model affected, according to the company. For Apple, it could lead to increased sales of these products through Amazon's heavily visited website and app.

Another change is that only Apple authorized resellers can now list Apple products on Amazon.

Donald Trump hits back at Emmanuel Macron for European army proposal
Trump to remain in the global climate change or Iran deals and did nothing to protect France from USA tariffs. Trump returned the favor, hosting Macron at the first and only state dinner of his presidency.

Apple will fix the screen or drive on affected units for no cost.

"Amazon is constantly working to enhance the customer experience, and one of the ways we do this is by increasing selection of the products we know customers want", an Amazon spokesperson said in a statement.

Apple did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment.

The two companies have occasionally been at odds over the sale of Apple devices. Amazon sold a limited assortment from Apple previously that included Mac computers and Beats headphones. And even with this new deal, Amazon still won't sell Apple's HomePod, a competitor to Amazon's Echo devices.
