Apple has also updated the repair process for the Apple iPhone 14 Pro and Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max, making it easier to resolve difficulties with Face ID, the company’s biometric unlocking system for devices, and the selfie camera. While fixing these phones typically involves replacing the smartphone. Moreover, according to a study, authorised Apple service centres may cure these difficulties by repairing the same item. The changes may apply to Apple’s high-end Pro models released in September.

According to 9to5Mac, the iPhone maker announced in an internal memo that Apple Stores and Apple Authorised Service Providers will be able to repair issues with the selfie (or TrueDepth) camera and the Face ID sensor on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max without having to replace the smartphone itself. This will result in less electronic waste as part of the repair process.

iPhone 14 Pro Repair Process

According to the source, Apple enables same-unit repairs for the iPhone XS and subsequent models, except the iPhone 14 series, which came last year. Nevertheless, it is unclear whether the adjustments to fixing the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max phones apply to other areas and whether (or when) they will become the standard.

Furthermore, owners of iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus will have to wait a bit before same-unit repairs are available.

Last year, this one was rumoured that Apple had expanded its Face ID repair programme to the iPhone X. It will allow fixes without replacing the entire handset. The programme will initially launch for the iPhone XS, iPhone 11, iPhone 12, and iPhone 13 devices.
