Apple Now Warns iPhone 11 Users Against Third Party Displays

Apple has never been a fan of letting its users repair their iPhones by themselves, and this is yet another attempt. The company has published a support document on its website where it is discouraging its users against third party repairs again.

Apple will prompt all iPhone 11 users running iOS 13.1 with a warning if they replace their screens with an aftermarket component. The warning is “Unable to verify this iPhone has a genuine Apple display”.



The warning will appear on the user’s lock screen for 4 days after the problem is first detected. It will then move to the Settings menu where it will stay for 15 days before being moved to Settings -> General -> About.

Apple lists a variety of problems that could occur if the display is swapped for an aftermarket one, such as multi-touch problems, issues with screen color accuracy and brightness, or True Tone failing to work properly, etc.

However, to Apple’s credit, even if a display is not verified as genuine, iOS will not stop the display from functioning normally. Since these messages are also very well hidden, it will not impact the user experience much during their daily use.

Regardless, Apple has issued a strong warning on its support page, warning users of the dangers of using non-genuine displays.

If you need to replace your iPhone display, it’s important for certified technicians who use genuine Apple display parts to repair it. Only technicians who have completed Apple service training and who use Apple genuine parts and tools should replace iPhone displays. These service providers include Apple, Apple Authorized Service Providers, or Independent Repair Providers using genuine Apple parts. Replacements not performed by Apple authorized service providers or certified technicians might not follow proper safety and repair procedures and could result in improper function or issues with display quality or safety.
