Apple's proprietary tool allows authorized technicians to detach just the Studio Display cable instead of the entire screen, reducing out-of-warranty repair costs.
Apple is, again, rumored to soon offer same-unit repairs for common Face ID issues by permitting authorized technicians to replace a TrueDepth camera component on the iPhone XS or newer without having to replace the whole iPhone itself.
Good news for DIY-ers: Third-party iPhone 13 screen replacements no longer disrupt Face ID provided you've updated your phone to Apple's iOS 15.2 software update.
Apple has created a brand new toold designed to manually update AirPods firmware to the most recent version in case a regular over-the-air update fails.
iOS 15.2 lets you access a history of serviced iPhone parts to check that a device repair was carried out as sold, including if any serviced part has been identified as a genuine Apple component.
Apple's Self Service Repair program allows you to perform your own iPhone battery replacements, screen repairs and more using Apple parts, tools and manuals.
Back in February, it was reported that Apple was working on a way to replace the glass back panel in the iPhone 12 without requiring the replacement of the full device, too. The repair unit was made available for two iPhone 12 models, and now availability has expanded.
So you've dropped your iPhone and the rear glass has shattered. Faulty Face ID sensors, you say? Soon, repairing these and other components won't require replacing the entire device.
Using Location Services on your iOS device can be quite handy, but with it comes some privacy loss. There are apps and services that require your location and that Location Services be enabled. Apple apps like Maps and Weather, along with third-party apps like Uber and DoorDash obviously need your location to complete their jobs.
But if you’re growing more concerned about privacy and want to stop sharing your location with apps and services, you certainly can and here’s how.
As expected, Apple today announced the upcoming arrival of a new services bundle dubbed Apple One. There are three tiers to choose from, and prices start at just $14.95 per month.
After reading our commentary on avoiding App Store subscription fatigue, I felt like I could tighten the belt as well. I have a lot of software, streaming, and entertainment subscriptions to help keep my ear to the ground for the site.
Being in the streaming-know comes with the territory, but for normal consumers, picking a few quality digital subscriptions is most important. As a new year clicked over, taking stock in my monthly cash outflow was important to re-adjust budgeting. Cancelling subscription service dollars is important for a healthier budget.
From time to time, Apple has a way of launching repair/service programs for its products. And now the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus has one of its own for a "no power" issue.
