techno.rentetan.com – Using iOS 15.2, you may verify that your repaired iPhone is made entirely of genuine Apple components. You may now check to see if any non-Apple components have been used in your iPhone’s repair with iOS15.2. Apple has traditionally put a lot of emphasis on utilizing authentic Apple parts for iPhone repairs. For those who exclusively purchase new iPhones, this probably isn’t of much concern to you; but, if you buy used iPhones from Craigslist, Facebook, or eBay, you should examine the components and service history before deciding to buy it.

Scammers are selling iPhones with unapproved repair components, which might pose a danger to consumers. A phony iPhone battery, for example, may bloat or even explode under normal working settings, and that’s not a risk worth taking.

It’s worth noting, though, that the term “non-genuine components” might be deceptive since Apple has been known to restrict the swapping of parts across models. The display from a new iPhone can’t be transferred to another iPhone since specific portions are hardcoded to your device.

Apple just made a good first step by providing consumers access to authentic Apple parts and equipment, which has long been requested by the Right to Repair campaign. Parts and Service History feature in iOS 15.2 let your friendly local iPhone repair specialist rapidly verify whether the repair was successful.

Is there a way to see which iPhones have been serviced and how many times?

iOS 15.2 is required for parts and service history tracking on your iPhone. The upgrade was available in the public beta program for iOS at the time of this writing. In the meanwhile, you may wait for it to be made accessible to everyone by Apple if you choose. In order to examine the components and service history of the following iPhones, you’ll need that:

  • iPhone XR
  • iPhone XS
  • iPhone XS Max
  • iPhone SE (2nd generation)
  • iPhone 11
  • iPhone 11 Pro
  • iPhone 11 Pro Max
  • iPhone 12 mini
  • iPhone 12
  • iPhone 12 Pro
  • iPhone 12 Pro Max
  • iPhone 13 mini
  • iPhone 13
  • iPhone 13 Pro
  • iPhone 13 Pro Max

How to examine the history of your iPhone’s components and services

The parts and service history of your iPhone may only be seen if it has been serviced and you have iOS 15.2. In the event that you purchased a new iPhone but never had it serviced, this option will not be available in Settings. This area is called “Parts and Service History” and may be accessed by going to Settings > General > About.

The parts and service history option offers various data for different devices, which is also helpful to know. Only if the battery has been changed will older phones like the iPhone XR, XS series, and iPhone SE (2nd generation) appear. This year’s iPhone 11 series will allow you to check whether or not the battery or screen has been changed. You’ll be able to see whether the battery, camera, or display has been changed on newer smartphones like the iPhone 12 and 13 series.

You may check whether a component is authentic by selecting an option from the Parts and Service History menu. Authentic Apple Part will appear on the screen if this is the case.

A message titled “Unknown Part” will appear if the component is not authentic or if it cannot be swapped out. As a result, it’s possible that the replacement component isn’t genuine, isn’t performing as planned, or has previously been used in another iPhone. Ideally, you should be able to utilize authentic components from a different iPhone without making a mistake. Although it is helpful to know whether the item that was replaced is new. It’s always preferable to utilize a brand new iPhone component to replace a damaged one.
