Apple has traditionally refused to provide repair services for devices that have been lost or stolen. Apple currently refuses to repair iPhones that have been reported as lost or stolen to the GSMA Device Registry.

According to an internal memo emailed to Apple Store personnel and Apple Authorized Service Providers, the business will now check if a gadget is registered as a device. lost or not before making any repairs. If the gadget has been “reported as missing” by the company’s internal systems, technicians must refuse to fix it.

The GSMA Device Registry is a global database that allows smartphone users to report losses, theft, and fraud, as well as identify whether their device is on a payment plan. Companies having access to the platform can quickly check if a phone has been assigned to any of these categories using the IMEI.
