Apple iOS 15.2 Update Makes iPhone 13 Screen Repair Easier – Tablets & Phones – News

iPhone repairer says iOS 15.2 beta will allow iPhone 13 screen replacement without Face ID stopping. Apple promised to provide such an update, but it was not mentioned in any release.

in a Youtube video iCorrect shows that the iPhone 13 screen can now be replaced with a donor copy, without breaking Face ID. However, the phone continues to give a warning that Apple “cannot verify” that it is an official screen. This has been the case for some time and has not changed. The warning will only be visible when replaced by authorized Apple repairers.

Soon after the release of the iPhone 13, it turned out Face ID has stopped working, if the phone screen has been swapped with the exact same screen from another copy. This is due to the presence of a chip on the screen associated with the Face ID module in the same phone. Face ID could have been turned on, but for that the chip on the display unit had to be replaced, which is a complicated process.

Last week, Apple confirmed to The Verge There will be a software update This ensures that Face ID is no longer broken when the screen replaces a word. However, the iPhone manufacturer has not said which software version will happen. Since the modification is in the beta version of iOS 15.2, it is expected that it will also be implemented in the latest version of this update. Apple did not mention the change in its release notes.
