Yesterday, we took a closer look at how the new iPhone 13 Pro Max handles drop tests. Now, another YouTuber claims that you’ll probably not be able to replace your iPhone 13’s screen with third-party repair centers without losing access to Face ID.
Phone Repair Guru shows in a new video that although it’s easier to replace some screen components, once the user needs to get a new screen, they’ll probably need to go to Apple or an authorized center to get the iPhone fixed.
He shows that when you replace the iPhone 13 microphone, ambient light sensor, and proximity sensor everything works as expected. But when you replace your iPhone 13 screen with a new one, it will say that the display is not original and you lose Face ID support.
Phone Repair Guru explains that there are some workarounds like transferring some chips to the new screen but most repair shops won’t do that because it’s “too sophisticated.”
