On independently refurbished iPhones, Apple said it will leave on its idea to stop the Face ID. The company is always in litigation with the reform community and is being tested again.
A new report from Verge states that Apple “will release a software update that does not require a microcontroller transfer to enable Visual ID after swap screen.”
Screen savers are the most common smartphone fixes. Apple has included a new microcontroller in the iPhone 13 display that connects each screen with the other components of the phone. As iFixit reported If a third-party repair shop replaces the iPhone 13 display, Apple will remove the Phone ID setting.
The repair community has begun to call this trust culture part “serialization.” Basically, every secure component transmits the serial number back to the operating system, and the software keeps track of the serial numbers that the device should have. If you replace a part, one of the serial numbers will change and the operating system will recognize it. In case of replacing the third-party iPhone 13 screen, the phone will say “Cannot activate Face ID on this iPhone”.
Authorized repair shops have access to Apple’s proprietary software that combines a new microcontroller display with the rest of the phone to steal Eye ID. It is possible that unofficial stores will replace the microcontroller controllers of the display, but this represents a significant increase in the performance of the most common phone repair and requires a microscope and delicate debugging function. Face ID on the iPhone 13 is a completely different component from the display, so there is no obvious justification for blocking the Face ID after changing the display. The end result, however, according to iFixit, is an “unexpected lock” of “giving Apple the power to approve or reject all amendments.”
