iPhone shoppers want to be able to replace their batteries at will. However, Apple does not want them to do so in an unsafe way – even if the replacement batteries are approved by Apple.
Controversy over an iOS feature that displays a service alert on your iPhone. when a battery has been repaired or replaced by an unauthorized third party. Apple responded today in a statement on Tom's Guide:
"We take the safety of our customers very seriously and want to make sure that the battery is changed properly. There are now more than 1,800 Apple-authorized service providers in the US, so our customers can more easily access high-quality repairs. Last year, we introduced a new feature to let customers know if a certified technician can not prove after Apple's repair process that a new original battery has been installed. This information is intended to protect our customers from damaged, inferior or used batteries that may cause safety or performance problems. This notification does not affect the customer's ability to use the phone after an unauthorized repair.
You have two options: Bring your iPhone to an Apple Store, Best Buy, or more than 800 other authorized US repair shops to handle the battery change yourself. The latter disables the battery health information that is normally displayed in your iPhone settings, but your phone will continue to function as normal.
The service warning affects only the iPhone XS, the iPhone XS Max, and the iPhone XR with devices running iOS 1
iPhone owners on the Internet seem to have mixed feelings about Apple's decision to display the service message. Obviously, the company does not want iPhones to explode due to faulty batteries. Disabling the battery health tool, even if the battery was approved by Apple, seems to be a big mistake for some.
If you recently replaced your iPhone battery in an unauthorized store, you can take it to Apple or an Apple-approved repair shop to replace it. Again, for $ 69, if you want to get battery information. Otherwise, you can use your iPhone as it is and hope for the best.
