iPhone 6s screen repair "Non-OEM Hardware Detected" during restore
Not so much a question. Just wanted to share this information that we experienced for anyone who is going to do iphone 6s screen replacements.
We did a screen replacement after repair was completed. We then tested everything even TouchID. Customer then took it back home to restore device through iTunes. Customer stated the restore went halfway, stopped and then popped a message on the screen stating "Non-OEM Hardware Detected". We did not replaced the TouchID home button, just the screen assembly.
Since we still had original screen, we put back the original screen then restored the device to our surprised it worked 100%. We believe 3D touch panel is married to the phone itself, just as the Touch ID button was in the iPhone 6. Device has restored fully. Touch ID is reading perfectly. Going to try to transfer the 3D touch panel to the new replacement screen and test.
This is so far first and only device that we experienced this issue and we are still not 100% if this for every iphone 6s screen replacement.
We glad to see everything actively testing this issue out and glad to hear that the issue hasnt happen to anyone else. We do apologies for the scare and also not having the proof to show our claim. If we do come across this issue again we will provide pictures and or video. If anyone else can recreate this odd issue we had please let us know. :) Thank you
Is this a good question?
