Apple “Hides” Parallel Battery Data on iPhones XS, XS Max and XR

Apple may be a pretty devoted company, but that doesn't mean it doesn't have its problems. Whether to protect the consumer or for the sake of greed, the company has a very strict policy on repairing its devices whereby it attempts to prevent any unauthorized service from performing repair or replacement procedures for iPhones, Macs components. , etc.

This is not exactly a new question: the company has been facing pressure from consumers and small business owners for some time. Right to Repair (?Right to Repair?, in direct translation). However, as the company takes two steps forward to expand access to authorized service in the United States, it takes another step back with even more restrictions for everyone.

Yesterday, the iFixit (a repair company known for Apple's disassembly of devices) published an article in which it exposes a new method by Cupertino giant to limit the repair of iPhone batteries that has not been done by the company itself (or its authorized service network). this time, restricted to XS, XS Max and XR iPhones only. By replacing such a component in unauthorized third-party assists, iOS will no longer display Battery Health data, a feature that allows you to check maximum battery performance and performance introduced in iOS 11.3.

In short, Apple is ?blocking? iPhone batteries already in the factory; therefore, when replacing this component from the XS, XS Max and XR models in parallel (even if an original Apple battery from another iPhone was used), iOS still displays the message: ?Could not verify if this iPhone has a genuine Apple battery. Battery Health data is not available for this battery. ?

Such an alert had initially been found on the YouTube channel. TheArtofRepair at the beginning of this week:

The only way around this, guess what, by paying Apple to replace your iPhone's battery in an "official" way. This is because only Apple and its authorized service providers have diagnostic software called RepairCal to reset iOS status when a battery is repaired or replaced, a procedure that is obviously not available to third parties.

IFixit notes that the alert should not affect battery functionality, but it certainly makes it even harder to know when this component needs to be repaired again. There is also no information on why only the latest models of iPhones have the restriction, but this may indicate that this is a practice that has recently been adopted by the company.

Apple's Right to Repair Position

While supporters of the Direct to Repair policy continue to pressure the US government on technology companies' "monopoly" over electronics repair, an Apple spokesman commented that the company's goal "to ensure that its products are repaired safely and correctly ?, arguing that repairs to iGadgets should only be performed by authorized company service personnel, as disclosed by Axios.

We want to ensure that our customers always have confidence that their products will be repaired safely and correctly and in a manner that supports recycling. We are continually expanding our network of certified technicians and more recently announced that any Best Buy store in the US is now an authorized service provider.

On the other hand, users and advocates argue that Apple is not only complying with the claims contained in the Right to Repair bill as this would ?hurt the company's sales,? giving it the incentive it needs to restrict device repair.

We'll see how far this fight will come
