Apple will soon be able to repair major iPhone 12 breaks, avoiding having to buy a new one
The repair of the new Apple phones is about to take a qualitative leap. The brand will soon be able to replace the rear windows and other elements.
Faced with certain breakages, iPhone owners face the difficult situation of saying goodbye to their device and looking for a new one. Not everything can be fixed or replaced on these phones.
Apple or Apple certified technicians have the brand’s permission to analyze their products for the source of the problem and offer a solution to the owner. Breaks in the rear windows, for example, do not usually have a simple solution and the technicians end up advising you to buy a new model.
However, according to an internal note from apple to which MacRumors has had access, ensures that shortly those problems in the new iPhone 12 and 12 Mini will be easier to repair. The note sent to Genius Bars and Apple Authorized Service Providers (AASP), mentions the new “iPhone Rear System” method by replacing these items.
Components that can be replaced include: the plate, Face ID sensors and even the rear glass of an iPhone. Owners will thus avoid having to buy a completely new mobile, an advantage that also benefits the environment.
However, there are still components of the iPhone 12 that they cannot be repaired and they will force to change the device completely. These are the cameras of the new Apple smartphones. The screen, on the other hand, could already be replaced without losing the rest of the terminal.
“If a customer has an iPhone 12 mini with a cracked rear glass, for example, technicians will be able to replace the entire rear of the device, with the new housing attached to the original screen and rear camera. For this reason, the customer’s screen and rear camera must be free of damage or functional failure for your device to qualify for this same unit repair method.” explica Apple.
The company confirms to MacRumors that this technique is part of their commitment to reducing the carbon footprint of their products, as is the decision to remove the chargers and headsets from their packaging for the purchase of new phones.
