Apple To Warn Owners Of iPhone 11, 11 Pro, And 11 Pro Max About Unofficial Display Repair

In particular, iOS 13.1 will show a message that reads 'Unable to verify this iPhone has a genuine Apple display.'

The latest update to iOS 13, iOS 13.1, will warn users of the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max who replace their devices’ displays with a third-party alternative, featuring an “Important Display Message.” The message reads “Unable to verify this iPhone has a genuine Apple display.”

This warning reminds us of a battery health notification the tech giant launched the 2018 iPhones, the XS, XS Max, and XR. According to Apple, that was how it could make sure batteries in its handsets are safe.

The company noted about its displays, saying that unofficial replacements can result in degradation of multitouch performance, which means the display may fail to register users’ touch or it may react to their unintentional touches. In addition, replacing the original display with a third-party one can lead to quicker battery drain, incorrect color display, and struggle with brightness.

It was also noted that the warning will not affect users’ ability to use the iPhone or the screen. But the message will stay on the lock screen for 4 days and remain in Settings for 15 days. After that time, you can find it in Settings > General > About.

Furthermore, there may be an additional notification that says the company has updated the device info for this iPhone, which means the iPhone maker is keeping records of the iPhones with unofficial displays for future repairs. This will also help users know whether or not a repair shop changed their iPhone screen with a third-party one or whether a shop has tinkered with your secondhand device.

Anyway, you should stick to Apple Repair Centers, Apple Authorized Service Providers, and Apple Stores if you need to have your iPhone fixed.

Apple didn’t respond immediately to a request for further comments.
