How not to loose TrueTone screen replacement?

Hi everybody,

I've already saw different post that answers part of my question "Will I loose TrueTone and autobrightness with a screen replacement". But I want to know if the part that iFixit sells is a virgin part or not (will or will not loose TrueTone...etc).

What's the specific reason that this happens? If I get a screen from a used MacBook, will I loose this functionality? Has anyone tried or have experienced this?

Thanks for he help!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

If you get a new virgin display then you will loose Brightness, FaceTime camera & True Tone services. The issue is the display needs to be calibrated as they requires the system to be complete. Frankly, I really don’t see why Apple makes this hard if not to discourage repair.

If on the other hand getting a recycled display (which is what I use for my customers) then you don’t loose anything! As the calibration was performed and the settings are stored within the displays T-CON logic.

Thanks, but is the part that iFixit sells virgin or not?


@benmerino - The link I posted is for a Used display, Not a Virgin one which would then need calibration which you can't do.
