Right now, everyone made with some of the Apple devices that are part of the iPhone 12 family can be calm about their makeup. After all, this series of terminals has only been on the market for a few months, they are under warranty and it is unlikely that someone has taken them apart to take their more valuable items. However, thinking of the future, the guys from Cupertino have launched a little help for all those users who doubt that the camera of his iPhone 12 is the original.
The point is, iPhones usually last for several years, and when we buy used units after a certain period of time, we run the risk that they are not 100% original. Unfortunately, this often happens when it is too late and we no longer have the opportunity to get our money back knowing the situation.
Before continuing, it should be noted that this feature is only available, for the moment, on the iPhone 12. We are talking about the iPhone 12, 12 Mini, 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max. If you have an iPhone from previous generations, it will surely be more difficult to access this relevant information.
In the second case, this type of camera replacement detection is one of the new features of iOS 14. Although we just found it working 100% in versions iOS 14.4 and above, not before.
Is your iPhone 12 camera the original? Himself will tell you
At this point, if you meet the requirements for the iPhone model and its operating system update, you should know that at the exact moment your camera is not the original, you will know. thanks to a message: “Can not verify that this iPhone has an original Apple camera. “
This is the phrase with which the Californian tries to prevent his users from falling into deception. Keep in mind that the message will appear for 4 days after the fault has occurred, every time we restart the device, on its lock screen. Therefore, if you are planning to buy a used iPhone 12, you would do well to restart it.
On the other hand, you have to keep in mind that you can also manually check what we are saying, although only for 11 more days, 15 in total from the replacement of the camera. For that, proceed as following:
When you do, you’ll see all kinds of information about the device. If, ultimately, your iPhone 12’s camera isn’t the original, you’ll see a notification that says so. If not, don’t worry, this is the original.
Other similar solutions
It should be noted, in the same way, that in addition to the camera, we can also analyze the originality of two other components of the iPhone 12. We are talking about both the battery and the screen. . We will do this by following the same method. That is, if any of them weren’t original, you’ll have a way to find out in seconds.
How? ‘Or’ What? Exactly the same as with the camera. That is, by means of an ephemeral message on the lock screen, but which is kept for several days in the system settings.
Finally, malicious users should be aware that these messages will appear even when the replacement components are original from a different iPhone 12 than the one in which they were placed in the second instance. This is because each element has something like a particular PIN code, a unique serial number, which is detected by the operating system itself to alert it.
