If there's something almost as sad as having your iPhone stolen / lost, see the broken screen. In addition to disrupting the operation and leaving the device aesthetically awful, those who live inside (like me) have yet to go through the repair process, which can take a few days or even weeks without counting the price charged here for this service.
Regardless of the value, which varies from region to region, the fact that replacing the iPhone screen mainly after the implementation of Touch ID with the iPhone 5s, and 3D Touch with the iPhone 6s has become increasingly difficult for anyone to do. repair shop.
Of course, it is impossible that Apple can replace the screens of all iPhones in the world; For this reason, from 2016, the company started to send the machine that performs the calibration of the repaired screens to the Apple Authorized Service Centers (CSAAs), including some stores here in Brazil.
Even with these machines, screen repair and replacement services still required time and availability from the changing CSAAs. Apple said today, in a statement to service providers, that it has optimized iPhone screen calibration for software that will be made available to technical assistants, as released by iMore.
Apple is excited to announce that it has optimized iPhone display calibration to help its display repair work within each store.
As of September 17, 3D Touch calibration will no longer be required to complete repairs to iPhone 6s and later displays. We optimize the calibration process using software. This means that we can now calibrate a repaired iPhone simply by connecting the device to (written) that will perform our calibration and diagnostics without the need for hardware. This change will create a more flexible workspace in many stores. Most importantly, save time for you and our customers.
Although simpler, this new way of calibrating iPhone screen sensors does not eliminate the need for the famous repair machine we talked about. Touch ID registration with the Secure Enclave and the rest of the hardware still requires use of hardware designed and supplied by Apple.
Still according to the iMoreThe news is part of Apple's initiative to better protect customers and the environment, with services that not only work better, but last longer. In this sense, from the fact that iOS 12 is compatible with the same devices as iOS 11, to the use of increasingly resistant and sustainable materials, contribute to the durability of the gadget Ma's flagship.
Apple has not provided the scope or distribution of such software for technical assistance; It is likely that a priori only repair shops in the US will perform the new repair. If we obtain information about Brazilian stores that have already implemented it, we will update this matter.
