Error code updating iphone
Earlier this month, a Guardian report flagged a curious ‘Error 53’ message that was disabling i Phones.
The error was caused by unofficial repair shops replacing the connector that ran between the Touch ID sensor in an i Phone’s home button — usually in the process of replacing faulty home button assemblies.
Apple is currently facing a class action lawsuit over the Error 53 matter.
This update will restore phones ‘bricked’ or disabled by Error 53 and will prevent future i Phones that have had their home button (or the cable) replaced by third-party repair centers from being disabled.
This test was designed to check whether Touch ID works properly before the device leaves the factory.
Today, Apple released a software update that allows customers who have encountered this error message to successfully restore their device using i Tunes on a Mac or PC.
