Begins to become famous error in the iPhone 6 and 6s that blocks mobile if it is detected that has been repaired by a third party and not by authorized Apple service
Begins to appear more Internet users who have seen their iPhone is locked with a strange error.Mobile, when ignited, prompted to connect to iTunes via USB cable, iTunes doing so shows an error screen with the message "The iPhone has been unable restored. There was an unknown error (53) ".
It seems that this error is directly related to home repairs or made by unofficial shops that repair this equipment. Since the arrival of iOS 9 some iPhone are able to detect that a mobile component has been replaced by another, namely the start button also makes fingerprint reader.
This "Error 53" appears when reassembling the computer and try to turn it on, mobile from the iPhone 5s, the first model with this fingerprint reader.
The strange thing is that only appears when this button has been replaced by a store or a person unrelated to Apple. That is, it occurs unofficial Apple stores or service centers not certified by the company. In other words, if you have changed the button at a neighborhood store makes repairs, there is a possibility that the reassembling this error.
also found replacements display cases that result in the same error.
If you have changed the button but still can not upgrade to iOS 9, this continues to function normally, but at the time that the new version is updated, it stops working.
Everything indicates that this is a system created by Apple to prevent iPhone users fix their phones with parties other than officers. Although we must be in a very desperate situation to fix / fingerprint reader button with a piece that is not official (remember that the reader unlocks sensitive items such as apple pay to have your bank card). This itself can create more problems when it comes to change broken screens, one of the most common defects of the iPhone when they fall.
If your phone is under warranty, at an Apple Store You might change the screen free, although not in all cases. In addition, there is no official Apple stores in all cities, making it more understandable to change in unofficial and cheaper shops. In any case we remind you that in addition to Apple stores, there are many providers authorized by Apple, which also use official parts of the brand and are backed by her services.
