iPhone 14 Pro Programmed To Reject Repair - Teardown and Repair Assessment

    Hugh JeffreysHugh Jeffreys

    Based on my testing with the iPhone 14 Pro it doesn't seem 3rd party repair is viable on this device, despite Apples introduction of the "Self Service Repair" program this year.

I find it funny that Rossmann does not understand late stage Capitalism, how are Apple suppose to squeeze out every possible profit margin possible if they are not allowed to make planned obsolescence their motto? Apple is a massive Corporation and like with any massive Corporation, growth becomes limited and as we know, if you do not grow in Capitalism, you gonna bankrupt, this is like basic economics 101 we learned this 1st grade at school in my country and yet in america its almost like they brand you a conspiracy Christian evangelic church supporter because you state factual scientific proof how the market operates, anyone who operated a medium sized business would know this by heart LOL, how do you sell products if people just repair their old ones? The answer is, you do not.

You should have GSX and ATLAS access if that's the case so if you don't know/learn about the repair processes its because you aren't utilizing those resources. They literally have text and videos for every model and repair through their admittedly shitty search but it is all there and high quality, just behind a non-public gate.

I've been watching Louis R's videos for years and he's right. People don't care as long as they get to sport the logo. It's amazing! I have asked the question of a group of my daughter's friends who all have iphones: How would you feel about Ford or Toyota or Honda not letting you repair your cars unless you buy everything from them? Their answers are always "I would never buy from them again". Then you point out that Apple has been doing that for years and making it worse each year and they go "ohhh" but then continue talking about how "yes" they will get the next iphone . We are sloths incarnate and companies like Apple and Tesla know it. I've stopped letting this ignorance raise my blood pressure. I do the only thing I *can* do: Not buy their products.

Not only are you locked into using Apple's "repair shops", they are requiring you to use the actual original parts by locking the motherboard to specific serial numbered parts, as we see in the video above. This means that a simple camera, battery, or screen swap is not possible, and requires the purchase of a new phone.

@MichaelMark9371 What is redundant? Look up term "conscientious withdrawal of efficiency" or "sabotage" by economist/sociologist Thorsten Veblen. It's being applied world wide now. If you can't find a proper plug for your charger because one is 1/10 of an inch smaller or wider than previous one, or when you have to leave your car in repair shop for 1 week to change 2 dollar spring, or when you have to buy new printer when one gets magically jammed after certain amount of pages, or when all your electronics magically stop working when warranty expires, usually after 2 years. Apple is just a prime example of that, but all companies apply it, including fashion brands. It creates endless cycle of consumption and millions of tons of unnecessary waste.

Right to Repair asked battery to be on removable glue, Apple did do it, the glue being hard to access was not on the agenda! You can now get replacement hardware as asked but it's only from authorised Apple vendor to stop piracy and theft of IP. Right to repair asked the phone to be not bricked when open for unauthorised repair, phone now work after unauthorised repair with few luxuries cut out. So all the demand has been meet.

Regarding the front camera, since the iPhone XR, XS, XS Max, anytime you replace it, you'll need to flash an update for the camera to start working again. You can use iTunes or 3u Tools to flash the device. Doesn't matter what iOS version you're flashing. Just the flashing process itself is what fixes it. And anytime you swap it, even if it's the original, it will require another update. So this isn't something new. Unfortunately, not many people know this.

Excellent video, those remarks about not feeling like you own something you paid for are on point. It seems like many things we have these days, ownership is being removed completely. The battery is the main thing for me, perhaps you don’t want to swap your phone every two years but just want a battery replacement, sending to apple for a replacement and take two weeks and you might not have a spare phone to use. It should be user replaceable, take the front off without the dam glue and then unplug the battery and there it is. I’d be happy if the phone was a little thicker to allow this.

Yeah, the same with iPhone X, as it's probably known. Had one taken to a repair shop and changed an original display with another original display and face id doesn't work anymore. I'm amazed how people view these predatory artificial technical limitations as "user-centered". Absolutely nothing Apple does is for the benefit of the user or developer. And I'm on the developer side, too. Luckly, it's a work phone, so I just payed with company money for the phone and the reparation, but if I were to buy myself an iPhone, I wouldn't buy anything higher than the 7, as anything higher than that is just a hassle to own in my work field.

@Atticus Jailbreaking iPhones these days relies on there being an exploitable bug in iOS that enables the jailbreak. That's why you hear so little about it these days, each jailbreak must be tailored to a specific version (Or small list of versions) of iOS because apple is usually quick to fix bugs that make jailbreaking possible. So it's not dead, it's just extremely hard.

@llynxfyremusic You can put the company under scrutiny without scrutinizing the employee, and even disclose such. Objectively it'd be to swap the hardware as shown in the video and see if it can be reactivated through the apple repair means, and see what canned messages Apple has prepared for their support representatives in the event the activation doesn't work, support representatives are held under SOP's guided by the parenting company, if Apple states themselves that it's non original hardware even through their own activation means and not just software ID mismatch, that would make for interesting content.

The only justifiable functionality loss is faceid, none of the other missing features make sense.

​@Oz Bad "do you know which one’s easier to plug in at night …….. the iPhone" is just pure confirmation bias. It's what you're used to and is reinforced by your own claims of it being 'superior.' There is _zero_ difference between plugging in either cable because they're close in size and both are reversible. In all cases USB-C is the superior connector and standard. It can deliver more power, more data and has another advantage over the lightning again because it can use the same connector on both ends of a cable regardless of which orientation either end is connected; lightning does not, and I think physically within its spec, cannot do this. Lightning is a dying standard, slowly meandering its way into obscurity, even with the Apple ecosystem. More and more of their own products are adopting USB-C, and it's highly likely that given the EU mandating they must do so, soon it will not make economic sense for them to remain so defiantly arrogant and we all know Apple is only ever motivated by its bottom line.

This trend is not just happening in electronics. Automobiles are trying to lock you into their own eco-systems as well. I remember when you could just by a jug of coolant at any auto parts store. But now the pink coolant for my Toyota can only be purchased from their dealerships. Sure there is something similar at the parts store but it's missing several ingredients. I've also heard of someone replacing their radio with an after-market version only to find the engine no longer runs. Turned out the engine computer was part of the radio in that model.

@Akhil problem is most of the people in the government in charge of adding and modifying legislation are also friends with the board of directors in these companies hence making more red tape is in their best interest, the harder it is for you to repair, the more money these politicians/lobbyists make in stopping you from repairing and they also hire people to say anti right to repair is good because it stops people from stalking you or other bs like uncertified mechanic = getting stalked by ISIS at those hearings because otherwise how are they going to push bs evidence as fact.

The funny thing is the 14 is more repairable than the 14 pro since the 14 you go at it from the back and can replace the back glass. The 14 pro is almost identical to the 13 pro. The 14 was most likely designed that way in mind for the apple self service repair program. I suggest you look at the 14 since it is genuinely surprising that the 14 got an internal redesign while the 14 pro remains largely the same

@Jay711 the point is, if you break an iPhone 14, it's much cheaper to fix compared to the 13. It doesn't look different at face value, but for people who like to keep their phones for a long time, it's worth knowing the 14's more cost effective to repair when it's inevitably broken somehow down the line. Thus, they wouldn't have to actually see the difference themselves (by opening up the phone as you suggest) to benefit from owning a 14 over older models. For anyone that's actually bothered about having a phone with different features to last year, they'd likely go for a pro anyway, the base model is for the everyday consumer.

For Touch ID, the module encrypts your fingerprint data with a unique key. That unique key is only known to the secure enclave, so no program on the CPU, not even with kernel privilege can decrypt it since it can't access the decryption key. But this requires pairing of secure enclave to a specific touchID module. This prevents any software intercepting your fingerprint data, and also prevents one from injecting fingerprint data to unlock the phone. (think of someone who lifted your fingerprints from a glass and recreate the data from it). So this was smart and secure, but you coudln't replace the touchID module without losing the functionality. faceID is less robust because the sensors are also available to the CPU to do you poop emoji and other stuff based on reading your face. So the tying of faceID sensors to the phone has far less justification. For the battery, the Samsung fire-starter phones likly caused panic at all manufacturers, and I can understand Apple not wanting an iPhone with 3rd party battery catching fire on a plane and causing it to crash. But blocking genuine Apple batteries is not justified. With regards to software versions: suspect it isn't so much the software version that matters but rather the process of installing new OS that re-pairs some module to motherboard but stuff that would be paird to secure enclave would not get changed.

It’s unfortunate because Apple always makes their disassembly the same over the years with a few simple modifications.

The companies not only locks phones down so are it’s laptops. Also when you manage 1000’s of iPhones Apple assigns top notch support personnel and they offer the company advanced training on security.

To "save the environment" they could at least keep a gap of 2 years before releasing a new iPhone model. It would give them time to actually bring more new stuff to the new model and people will buy the current model anyway.

I am currently down the conspiracy theory (most likely true lesbihonest) that they have the next 5-10 releases planned out with all the tech they're going to put in them. If they made and released the best tech they possibly could they'd have nothing new for next year. Instead, take what we can achieve and dole it out over X releases so we have something to trickle feed the sheep. Apple aren't alone in this obviously, its just frustrating that what "makes good business sense" is so anti-consumer at the same time.

I've got something interesting to contribute. While I do agree that we don't have any freedom I think this system serves the purpose of avoiding thieves stealing your phone and enjoying the spare parts. Before, someone could steal your iPhone, switch the board and enjoy all the fresh components because they still couldn't use the iCloud locked one. What we really need is Apple selling repair parts with a shop system that allows users to request a part registration to your specific device so people have control and freedom to repair but thieves don't. Just my grain of salt to the discussion.

I fell out with Apple at the iPhone 6 when I was refused a battery replacement ( they declared water damage when the phone had never been near water - I suspect they do this a lot ). I was offered a refurbished phone for ~£600. At that time I was still able to use a 3rd party battery which worked. I will never ever buy an Apple product for any reason. I know there are specific reasons for needing one, when you need MacOS specific software but the sole reason for this is because those software companies are in bed with Apple. I know the software is good, but people should refuse to be forced into buying over priced and often substandard hardware ( eg iPad pro 10.5 with its dodgy inductors ). Once invested Apple are basically holding their users hostage. Good for you for this public service announcement.

Apple has always done this with their products - going all the way back to their PERSONAL COMPUTERS back in the 1980s. It was a well-known fact that IBM PC clones could easily be customized whereas Apple computers could not. This was one of the primary reasons people adopted the IBM clone PCs over the Apple. Even the automotive industry is starting to do this with their CARS! I went to Sears automotive to get a new battery for my BMW. After an hour, they told me that I needed to go to BMW to "reset the computer". Apparently, once you detatch the battery, the car's electronics will not go back on unliess a BMW repair tech "resets" the computer. Even my speedomoter didn't work!!! On the other hand, had I gone directly to BMW for the battery they would have charged me nearly $1,000 - for a BATTERY!!! It's a lot easier to buy the battery elsewhere - then learn how to "reset" the computer yourself (or find a friend who knows how to do it). Moral of the story - repairs are a massive revenue stream for product makers. Sadly they are wiling to go to great lengths to stop us from independently repairing them!

In the past, many iPhones that you could buy online, e.g. on ebay, were iPhones that once had a damage and then were repaired unprofessionally with third party components, components were much worse than the components Apple uses, but the phone was still sold as original iPhone, at a very good price, because they were supposedly showroom items or returns that were only used for a few days (or similar nonsense). The installed components were e.g. displays that were not really Retina or had too low resolution/brightness, batteries with far too low capacity, cameras with extremely poor quality, etc. There were organized criminal gangs that made a million dollar business out of selling this junk to the people. A magazine, had once randomly bought 20 iPhones on ebay, supposedly all as good as new, but at an extremely good price and more than 3 out of 4 of them had this problem. Customers who bought such a device were of course disappointed by the device and thus by the brand, i.e. even though they did nothing wrong, all of it was blamed Apple. Such customers then never buy an iPhone or any Apple product again in the future. So Apple had to do something to stop this and criminally these gangs in Eastern Europe and Asia could not be arrested. So how do you make sure that this business model no longer works and customers no longer become victims of fraud in the name of Apple? By making it impossible to replace original parts with cheap replicas, or not impossible, but somehow making sure that the customer notices this and comes to Apple support, who can then explain to him that he is a victim of fraud and that what he was sold there does not meet Apple's standards and quality. And what Apple does here works, because today you can hardly find such fake devices anywhere to buy. The customer would immediately get warnings and even if he ignores them (e.g. because the seller tells him some stupid story why he gets them and that everything else is fine), the device looks broken to him and he will not blame Apple but the seller, just as it should be. I myself have already become such a fraud victim and I only noticed it because I happened to have an identical iPhone lying next to me and I immediately noticed that the display was much more pixelated and darker and also reacted much worse to touch inputs. Only because I had paid for the device with Paypal at that time, I was still able to get the money back for it. What Apple is doing here seems drastic, but it works because these criminal gangs haven't found a way to bypass this protection yet. So it's true that it's not always about security. It's only about security when it comes to the TouchID sensor or FaceID components, because if you replace them with fakes, you can do much worse to customers (identity theft, Apple Pay abuse, access to company internals or bank accounts, etc.) And yes, it certainly plays a role that whoever buys a fake phone on ebay doesn't end up giving Apple any revenue, I won't deny that. But Apple is being accused of maliciousness here, while Apple has protected millions of users from fraudulent rip-offs with these drastic measures. If you know a way to do that without these measures, I'm all ears and Apple may be too, but I honestly can't think of much to say.

This whole situation is a manufactured crisis. Apple made iPhones more complicated to repair than necessary, then began completely locking out features should you dare to swap a part, and THEN launched a poorly designed and varyingly cost-effective self-repair program to close the feedback loop of "this is why you should only trust us with repairing your devices." Meanwhile, other companies are doing none of this and even creating higher-quality repair programs in collaboration with iFixit, and their phones are... *checks notes* more advanced. But tell me again how buying an overpriced, overengineered iPhone without a charger in the box is so great for the enviornment. Nice one, Hugh – I've been convinced off team iPhone for at least the next few years.
