Starting in autumn 2024, Apple will allow service centers and repairers to use not only new original parts, but also used spare parts and still working dismantled by others iPhone for the repair of some models. This choice could reduce the cost of repairs in some cases. But the company assures: users will be informed.

Apple announces: also spare parts used to repair iPhones

Repairers will be able to use used components removed from other phones and still working. All while benefiting from the functions and safety guaranteed by the Original factory calibration, just like new original spare parts. Apple has worked to allow the reuse of parts such as i Face ID or Touch ID biometric sensors. And he explains that in the future calibration will also become possible directly via the device.

As DDay points out, Apple will also simplify the procedures for users who want to try the Self Service Repair Store. In fact, for repairs that do not involve replacing the logic board it will no longer be necessary to communicate the serial number.

As for transparency, Apple will extend the feature “Activation block” also to iPhone spare parts, making parts from stolen or lost products are unusable. Furthermore, we will be able to see if the device has been repaired, specifying whether they have used new or used spare parts.

The introduction of the possibility of using original used spare parts for iPhone repairs represents a step forward in the direction of greater sustainability and accessibility. All without having to compromise user security and privacy.
