Apple’s New Repair Program: Used Genuine Parts Allowed

iPhone repair is now getting simpler and more environment friendly. Apple has recently shared a major development to its white-label program: beginning fall of this year individuals and independent repair shops will be able to repair iPhones with “used genuine” Apple parts.

More choices, more sustainability

This alteration is a token of the bigger alteration. Formerly, there was only out-and-out replacement because of the unavailability of available parts. Then, they will be able to pick the used and genuine Apple parts as their preference during the repair process thereby still being able to enjoy the full features of the device and remain safe from the possible misuse and security breach. This additionally extends the repair options but also generates the product longevity and the reduction in environmental influence.

Enhanced Repair Process

This is one of the Apple’s solutions to one of the key issues – parts joining. Till recently, the replacement of any component (such as the display, camera) of an iPhone was, most times, not successful until the manufacturer had to notify Apple Inc. that it could not verify the part. It can also cause the sensors of your Face ID and Touch ID to become malfunctional.

The eliminated problem was then. The company has devised a system, where calibration of both new and used genuine parts will be done exclusively on the device, only after the installations are done. This guarantees that the application of used parts will not inhibit the two features of Face ID and Touch ID to work correctly.

Transparency and Security

For more transparency, Apple will increase the extent of their Parts and Service history feature in the Apple’s app history. The segment will eliminate the requirement of user to provide evidence for repairs that have been done, and parts that have been used will also be new or by the company.

Apple is making the Activation Lock feature that Apple has already introduced in iPhones to apply also to the replacement iPhone parts. In so away, this will make criminals to shade away from the idea of disassembling stolen iPhones for parts that may in turn increase security in the country by decreasing the incidents.

Success’ or ‘Joint Success’ for the Users and the Environment?

John Ternes, Apple’s captain of hardware engineering commented, “We are thrilled about increasing the number of users and therefore the possibility of repairing parts”.

With Apple now opting to use authentic old parts a serious change is needed. As a result of this step, the users get to have more repair options, stability, and visibility in the whole repair procedure.
