Using the Apple Support app

If you have an iPhone or iPad, you can also download the Apple Support app. This app is a streamlined version of the above website.

When you open the app, by default it'll show you options for whatever device you're using the app on - tap Products in the top-left corner to select a different device.

Go through the menus to describe the issue you're having. The final page will likely tell you to bring your device in for repair, or lead you to a pre-written support article. But there'll usually be a Contact section too - tap Chat or Call under this heading to talk to a representative.
