Apple will start repairing Face ID instead of replacing the entire iPhone

Apple-authorized workshops will soon be able to repair Face ID modules on iPhone XS and newer models without having to completely replace the device. This was reported by MacRumors , citing a “reliable source”.

According to the source, Apple is going to start supplying TrueDepth Camera components, consisting of Face ID modules and a front camera. This will allow authorized workshops to repair the device instead of replacing it. According to an internal company memo, the initiative aims to reduce the overall carbon footprint of branded products. iPhone XS and newer owners will no longer have to re-configure new devices and lose data just because of Face ID glitches.

The timing of the entry into force of the new initiative has not yet been specified – Apple has only warned specialists that some time later they will have to undergo additional training, in addition, the necessary documentation will be issued. Recall that in November, the company announced the launch of a Self Service Repair program, which will save trained users from the need to contact authorized service centers: spare parts for branded devices will go on sale, and corresponding instructions will appear on the manufacturer’s website. In addition, when returning defective parts, you can get a discount on new products.
