Hi,

     If i send my brand new iphone to get "liquipel" will this void my warranty?


iPhone 4S, iOS 6

    Reading the description of Liquipel it says it permeates the whole device... i.e. it enters all the ports and coats the guts of the iPhone.

     

    I'd suggest you contact an Apple store and seek their opinion.  I'm guessing they would say it voids your warranty.

     

    I see no endorsement from Apple on the Liquipel site so 'buyer beware'.

    Yes. It will void your warranty.

    thanks, gave them a call and after an hour of waiting they said exactly that.

    Liquipel's treatment doesn't require any alteration or even opening the device as the nanocoating is applied without opening the device itself and is drawn into the phone thru the existing ports. I've taken in my treated phone and had no problems getting it replaced each time I've had an unrelated issue.

    This would fall into the category of "your mileage may vary by a notably large amount".

     

    If Apple told the OP "voids warranty", the OP should go by that or live with the risk.
