Apple is changing the approach to replacing the screen on the 13 series iPhones in unauthorized services

Some time ago, information appeared on the network indicating that after replacing the screen on the iPhone 13 series in an unauthorized service, the owner of the device will not be able to use Face ID, because the face scanners will be deactivated.

This is due to the fact that a microcontroller is installed in the tape that connects the screen to the motherboard, which is responsible for the operation of Face ID. Therefore, any unauthorized interference will cause a problem with operation, because the service does not have access to the tool that allows you to authorize new parts, as in the case of official points. The solution to this could be the transfer of the chip, which involves the use of appropriate devices, including microscopes, and great precision.

After numerous protests, Apple informed The Verge portal that this restriction will be removed with the next software update, so that replacing the screen with an unauthorized service will no longer block the Face ID scanner. Thanks to that, there will be no need to transfer the controller to a new tape in order to ensure the continuity of Face ID work.
