Apple has come up with a new way to repair the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini, which prevents it from replacing the device. Smartphones that no longer turn on or have problems with their motherboard, with Face ID or with the device housing, will be repaired with a new “iPhone rear system” from February 23. Intercepted by internal memo for reading MacRumors, It is a type of kit that consists of the iPhone’s rear case, and includes all the components of the device (battery, motherboard, wireless charging coil, tapic engine, various components, Face ID). Screen and photo pad.
Repairers of authorized service centers, as well as – imagine this – that the Apple store’s Genian technicians would therefore be able to replace almost all damaged iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 mini. As long as the damage does not affect the two components that are not part of the system (screen and photo unit), the repair of the smartphone will involve replacing the entire rear.
This new method has two advantages. The first is that the iPhone 12/12 Mini should not be completely replaced, and the second is that this system contributes to reducing Apple’s carbon footprint, at least as it indicates in its communications Does. Furthermore, and this should also be weighed in balance, repairing a damaged iPhone in its place should also allow the manufacturer to make small savings. At the moment, the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max are not affected.
