iPhone 11 will report a scam technician. Maybe Android smartphones should also?


Great idea.

Apple dictates very strict conditions when it comes to really its devices. In March this year, the company from Cupertino eased the conditions for repairing iPhones with batteries from other manufacturers. At the end of August Apple has changed its hardware repair policy, which may translate into the creation of more services for this manufacturer's equipment. On the occasion of the launch of the new iPhone 11 smartphones, however, the giant wants to show how much quality means to him, which he cares about himself.

New smartphones iPhone 11 use LCD screens while iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max from OLED displays. Interestingly, at the beginning of 2020, all three models will be produced only with OLED matrices. The manufacturer wants to give users of these devices the certainty that the replacement of a damaged display in the service will be carried out using original parts. Therefore, the smartphone will display a notification when the service technician decides to use it uncertified replacement.

If the smartphone detects that the screen is not original, it will display the message: "Important Display Message. Unable to verify this iPhone has a genuine Apple display."

This message will be displayed on the screen for 4 days. After this time, it will go to the Settings application, where it will be displayed at the top for the next 15 days. After this time, it will be moved to the Settings -> General -> About device section.

Apple on the dedicated technical support website explains this state of affairs.

"Only technicians who have undergone Apple service training and who use original Apple parts and tools should replace their iPhone smartphone displays. (…) Repairs carried out by other persons may not be carried out in accordance with the art and safety procedures, which may result in the malfunctioning of the parts spare parts. (…) "we read.

Apple also emphasizes that Improper repair may damage the batterydevice overheating or even … damage to health on the user's side as a result of a telephone malfunction.

This behavior of the giant seems quite reasonable, given that the message is not strongly exposed over time. Certainly it will work like a whip on dishonest service technicians assuring consumers that the exchanges were made on the original components.

Maybe other smartphone manufacturers should also introduce similar warnings related to the originality of components? What do you think
