Customers should avoid using third-party fixes on their devices, as well as any unknown parts utilized during the repair process, according to Apple. Thanks to the recent iOS 15.2 update, users buying secondhand iPhones will soon be able to discover if an iPhone has been fixed and if genuine or third-party parts were used. The new feature will also display whether or not the restored pieces are performing properly, giving customers a clear image of what they’re paying for.
The number of details available on iPhone repairs will now be governed by the model of iPhone purchased. On the iPhone XR, XS, and MS Max, the battery will be visible, while on the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13, the battery, camera, and display replacements will be visible. The iPhone 11’s battery and display replacement history will be revealed.
How to look for iPhone service history and repair information:
- Go to the General section of the Settings menu.
- Tap the About section at the top.
- Look for the “Parts and Service History” section.
- The information will be divulged at a later date. Learn more to gain a better understanding of part replacement.
If the phone has not been repaired or replaced, the ‘Parts and Service History’ section will not appear in the About section. This implies that a particular iPhone model has never been harmed physically.
