A video has appeared on the Phone Repair Guru YouTube channel explaining that replacing the screen on the iPhone 13 with an unauthorized service would not be possible without losing the ability to use the Face ID system.
The author of the material assures that replacing the screen itself is easier than in previous iPhone models. The smartphone works as before after replacing the microphone, light sensor or proximity sensor.
However, problems arise when it comes to replacing the screen itself. After that, a message is displayed that it is not possible to check whether the original unit is installed in the device, and the result is the loss of access to the Face ID function, for example, to unlock your smartphone with your face.
Most importantly, we are not dealing here with replacing the original screen with a replacement. Phone Repair Guru used a module from another version of iPhone 13 here.
Now it remains only to wait if Apple releases a suitable update to solve this problem, or if users of new iPhones in case of display failure are only doomed to the services authorized by Cupertino.
Apple unveiled its latest smartphones at an online conference two weeks ago. They are the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max. The devices are equipped with an OLED Super Retina XDR display, an A15 Bionic processor, and a dual or triple camera depending on the model. The smartphones can be ordered from September 17, and their first customers were officially delivered a week later, on September 24.
In the most recent fiscal quarter, Apple had a 36 percent increase in net sales. to $81.43 billion, and its net profit rose from $11.25 to $21.74 billion. iPhone sales increased by 50 percent, and revenue in China – by 58 percent.
