Face ID will be disabled if Apple iPhone 13 display is repaired by third party service

While Apple boast its premium and privacy it offers, some power user has reflected the recent changes in Apple that ignore the right of repair by the consumer. Apple has did it again with the iPhone 13 which disable its Face ID when a third party service agent try to repair and replace a display themselves.

Phone Repair Guru has uploaded a video that shows Face ID is immediately disabled after the display is replaced. Although this can be bypassed by replacing chip from the old board to the new board, most service agent either do not have the skills nor the tools to perform such action. In the end more user will need to send back their device with a hefty repair price or straight becoming an e-waste.

Will such practices be implemented in other Apple devices? Only time will find out.
