Apple’s change in the iPhone 13 screen design now makes it more difficult for third-party screen repair companies to change the display, because efforts to turn on the damaged screen can cause loss of facial ID support.
Damaged display is a very common problem that forces device owners to seek improvement, both through manufacturers directly or through third-party repair centers. In the case where the screen must be replaced, it seems that it is an improvement that can only be done by Apple itself or official repair partner.
According to the telephone repair teacher on YouTube, diverting the display for replacement originating from the iPhone 13 model that is technically identified will function. However, users will be warned they do not use the original screen, and the face ID will not be available.
While replacing the screen from another iPhone problematic, it is still possible to repair for components connected to do, including microphones, distance sensors, and light sensors around.
Although using the original Apple display, notifications basically mean there are steps in the process of improvement that must be made to allow the display to work with a particular iPhone, and it is a step that can be done by Apple’s official repair services, but not the three parties.
This is not the first time screen repair through third-party companies can cause problems with the iPhone. In 2018, updates for iOS 11.3 reported kill the touch function for some iPhone 8 users with aftermarket display. In some cases, it is also found that there is a loss of automatic brightness adjustments and surrounding light sensors that are deactivated by iOS when booting.
The discovery occurs at a time when it burns above the right to repair. In September, Apple’s shareholders submitted a resolution to try and persuade Apple to reverse the “anti-repair practice.”
In Europe, the German government wants the European Union forcing producers such as Apple to be more free with spare parts for devices, up to seven years. Meanwhile in the United States, the FTC has promised to take restrictions on violating the law.
Legislation is introduced to the house A.S. In June to try and force the company to provide information on repairs and access to components “on time and on fair and reasonable provisions.”
