  • Apple recently launched the iPhone 12 Series with iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max
  • Many people including iFixit found that iPhone is discouraging Third-Party repairs

October 13th was the day when Apple Launched the iPhone 12 Series. These are the recent Flagship devices from the Smartphone Giant. Now, multiple reports are coming that Apple is not allowing third party repairs through various methods. This is a pretty bad move as per the YouTuber Jerryrigeverything.

iFixit did the iPhone 12 reparability test and found that the camera module on the latest iPhone 12 is not swappable. They transferred the camera hardware from one iPhone 12 to another and found that the camera is not working (sometimes) on the other iPhone 12. The camera is only working on some modes or becomes unresponsive sometimes. The camera hangs a lot and refuses to switch to the ultra-wide mode.

Also, it is not the same in the case of the iPhone 12 Pro. This thing happened only on iPhone 12, so this must be a bug or a software issue that could be resolved using an update. This might be intentional or unintentional. It won’t be a surprise too if this move is intentional. It must be noted that Apple’s authorized training guides for iPhone 12 say that the technicians need to run Apple’s proprietary cloud-linked System Configuration app to repair the cameras and screens fully.

Previously, this happened with the displays on iPhone 7 and 8 Plus. This happened because Apple used different manufacturers for these smartphones. It is still unclear whether this was planned or unplanned.
