Is there a way to replace the screen without sacrificing Apple Pay?
Per the item description for the replacement screens on this site’s store, there is a note at the bottom that says:
“When replacing the screen with a different part, it disables the NFC antenna, used for things like Apple Pay. There appears to be no easy fix for this right now. “
If I am reading this correctly, it means it is impossible to replace the Series 4 screen without loosing the functions of your NFC antenna. In other words, to replace a broken screen yourself you will trade one broken thing for another - which is obviously silly. I suppose there is a chance I am reading this incorrectly though - and my fingers are crossed that this is the case (especially after seeing the price of repair from the Apple Store).
Have any of you replaced the screen on a Series 4 and verified whether or not Apple Pay functionality is lost?
Is this a good question?
