Apple makes repairing rear panel of iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini easier

Cupertino-based tech giant Apple has reportedly found a way to fix your iPhone 12 and iPhone mini models without the need for replacing the entire units in case of certain hardware issues.
As per a report by MacRumors, the company has informed the Apple Authorised Service Providers that starting February 23, devices experiencing issues with the logic board, Face ID system, or even sporting a cracked rear glass will now get fixed and be returned to customers.
In case a user is facing an issue of a cracked rear screen, technicians will be able to replace the entire back panel of the device “with the new enclosure affixed to the original display and rear camera.” However, in this case, the handset is required to have a non-damaged display and rear camera. It should also not suffer from functional failures in order for their device to qualify for this same-unit repair method.
The report adds that Apple Authorised Service Providers will have a new “iPhone Rear System” part with them including the battery, logic board, wireless charging coil, Taptic Engine, Face ID system and more.
This new update in Apple’s repair programme is said to be available in all countries where the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 are sold, claims the report. The same policy doesn’t apply to iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max as of now.
At this point, there is no clarity whether or not the same-unit repair method will lead to a reduction in cost of getting the iPhone fixed. More details should be clear once the new policy kicks in starting February 23.
