According to a recent claim, the most recent Apple iPhone 14 series cellphones are reportedly simpler to fix than their predecessors. However, there is a catch, so it’s not all good news. This is what we do know.
The company with headquarters in Cupertino asserts that the new iPhone 14 series will be simpler to fix than earlier models. However, it appears that independent repair shops are unable to do this simpler fix. The information was provided by people in the third-party repair industry who informed Engadget that while disassembling an iPhone 14 is certainly simple, putting it back together and getting it to function properly is a very different matter.
According to the source, the iPhone 14 contains two ambient light sensors that aid in regulating the display’s brightness. However, these two ambient light sensors completely stop functioning when a replacement display that is not permitted is used.
This means that unless you recall exactly where the screen brightness slider is located and are able to manually change the brightness, your iPhone’s display will be entirely dark. But now, each time, you’ll need to manually adjut it.
The problem is caused by Apple’s “part pairing” restriction, which essentially gives each component that the iPhone 14 can recognise a distinct digital ID. Therefore, using unapproved parts results in some components failing.
One would require Apple’s proprietary software and a certified Apple technician to check new parts. In the past, third-party repairers may change the data contained on an EEPROM microchip using a special tool called an EEPROM (electrically erasable programmable read-only memory) programmer.
This enabled technicians to merely insert the ID into the replacement panel and read it from the old display. On the new iPhone 14 series, though, it seems difficult to complete this operation.
