    1. iPhone 12 Disassembly: What's Different?

      iPhone 12 Disassembly: What’s Different?

      As noted in our last post, the iPhone 12 is impressively durable. That being said, people are people- and people break things. So it’s probably a good idea to get familiar with the new repair changes in the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro.

      Now while there are many subtle differences between these models and their predecessors, there are only a few areas that we feel are important to focus on.

      Opening Procedure

      The process for opening up the phone is mostly the same as previous iPhone versions, save for some small details surrounding the installation layout, frame adhesive, and flex cabling.

      Stronger Screen Glue

      First, you will likely need to apply heat longer than with previous versions of the iPhone. The 12 series devices have stronger frame adhesive (probably the reason for their new 6 meters of water-resistance) and it will require more effort to get the screen to separate. We don’t think it’s imperative in any way, but it may surprise you the first time you try to open one of these phones.

    2. Regarding Unverified Displays on iPhone 11

      As iPhone 11 repairs become more common, repair technicians are starting to notice the dreaded “Unverified Display” Notification. Discovered around this time last year, the notification appears specifically on iPhone 11 series phones following a screen repair. And while it’s been known for a year now, the fact that it only affects 11 series phones and later means that most technicians are only starting to come across the issue now. So what is this exactly, and what can be done about it?

      What is it?

      As mentioned before, this is a notification that pops up following a screen repair on 11 series devices (and newer) running iOS 13.1 (or higher). Once the device is booted with a new screen, the user is greeted with a pop-up notification that reads “Important Display Message: Unable to verify this iPhone has a genuine display.” The notification will also be present on the lock screen for 4 days, and highlighted in the Settings app for 15 days, after which it is permanent
