Regarding the issue of the iPhone 13 Face ID not working after screen repair. Apple announced to the public about their newest product. iPhone 13 will not allow third parties to repair the LCD screen because it will affect the Face ID functionality.
When the iPhone 13 was first released in September, repair shops quickly noticed Face ID would break when the LCD screen was being replaced. And, Apple was backtracking on to the decision to limit iPhone 13 screen repairs.
Apple new screen repair trap
There are many rumors that Apple wants to dominate the brand & services. Making it more difficult for people to DIY or professional repair shops to repair broken screens. For example, the new iPhone 13 screen is paired with a microcontroller is called “serialization” for face ID. So if you try to DIY change the screen it won’t have the face ID with it.
Now you can replace the iPhone 13 Screen without worrying about the Face ID not working
The iPhone 13 completely disables its Face ID functionality when you replace its screen is because of the tiny chip from the screen. One of the most common phone repairs that could once be done with hand tools now requires a microscope. Which has huge implications for the repair industry for many third-party and independent repair shops. This means you won’t be able to fix your iPhone screen yourself unless you have the correct machine & tools.
So, the iPhone 13 screen repair process needs to move over a tiny control chip from the original screen to the new screen to make sure it retains the Face ID support.
Apple plans to fix the Face ID with a software update
According to the latest report by ‘The Verge’, Apple currently plans to roll out a software update that doesn’t require transferring the microcontroller to keep the Face ID working after a screen replacement.
The report explains:
Soon after the iPhone 13 launched, repair experts found that swapping out iPhone 13 screens would break Face ID unless you also moved over a tiny control chip from the original screen. It’s a complex process that makes one of the most common types of repairs prohibitively difficult for independent repair shops. (Apple-authorized repair shops, on the other hand, have access to a software tool that can make a phone accept a new screen.) For indie repair shops, things may get easier soon, however, as Apple tells The Verge it will release a software update that doesn’t require you to transfer the microcontroller to keep Face ID working after a screen swap.
Unfortunately, there are no further details on when this software update will roll out, but for now, the only way to fix these issues was to transfer that tiny chip for iPhone 13 screen replacement. So, don’t worry about the Face ID if you accidentally break your screen.
