    Well, I left my airpods in my pants pocket when I did laundry and guess what? Yep, my airpods got washed AND dried.

    I'm calling Apple in the morning and demanding replacement since it was their fault.

    Bah wah wah wah!
    Did you use laundry detergent pods?

    This.

    That poor old lady gets used as a punchline - and no one knows McDonalds knowingly served coffee that was dangerously over the temperature threshold. She gets laughed at after having multiple skin grafts because McDonalds was serving essentially napalm in a cup.

    Mcdonalds PR team did a great job making sure that’s what people think.
    I make a pour-over coffee every day. 205 degrees F is the optimal temperature for brewing coffee. If people want luke-warm coffee they should ask for it. McDonalds should make a better cup to handle coffee.

    Nope, I use powder.

    I did try the pods once.....not bad but the after taste is a bit rough.

    Had to go back to powder.

    Accountability.... or the lack thereof, seems to be a disturbing trend these days. I think it applies to this conversation, as well as many other conversations on other topics that don't even apply to this one.

    Everyone is missing the point.
    People are mad because Apple has decided to make the glass back panel irreplacable. They have decided to solder camera to the glass panel so that they could get more money from you.

    Look at Android phones. With an aftermarket glass panel it would cost you $20 dollars to replace it. $50-80 if you wanna run it through the vendor.
    Apple didn't have to do it this way! You as customers should be mad, not praising it!
    I agree both with the sentiment of the OP (that blaming Apple for a broken phone is non-sensical), I also agree a little bit with this. I'm not mad at Apple, but I think it's too bad that we're back to all-glass phones again. Back in 2013, I ended up staying with Android almost solely because I was worried about an all-glass iPhone, and those iPhones at least were relatively reparable compared with the 8 series and the X. I do keep my phone in a case - always have - and use a screen protector - always have - and have AppleCare+ - always get it, haven't used it yet for an iPhone - and rarely drop my phone, and never carry it in my back pocket, but I will most surely say that I would have been more comfortable buying an aluminum version of the iPhone X over this one. I will never use* wireless charging (I've done that; I want my battery to last as long as possible, and the heat and more inefficient charging of Qi just conflicts with that long-term battery health I want from this phone), and I cannot think of any other major reason to have a glass-backed phone at this point.

    So, not mad at Apple, I agree that blaming Apple is silly, but - it's IMHO too bad that they went all glass again, particularly in a way that's so hard and expensive to repair.


    * Well, I fired up my old Tylt Qi charger from 2014 the other day just to see how it worked with the X. A lot better than it did with my old Moto phone, actually... but that's the last I'll use it.
