Apple iPhone battery lockdown for safety

Technology Inceptions

Apple recently came under the scanner for locking batteries of select iPhones. If a user replaces the iPhone battery through third-party retailer - a ‘service' message now shows up in the Battery Health section. Furthermore, the Battery Health data is not shown, and an error message is displayed instead. This happens even if the user replaced it using an original Apple battery on certain models.

The ‘service' warning in the Battery Health section appears even if a genuine battery is used for replacement. The company triggers the warning if it doesn't detect a specific micro-controller configuration, that only authorised technicians are trained to deal with.The move makes ‘do it yourself’ repair difficult for even those users who are used to it.The move is to help protect customers from damaged, poor quality, or used batteries which can lead to safety or performance issues.
