Apple has expanded True Depth camera repairs to the iPhone X, according to a new report.
Apple has expanded its program that allows customers to get their Face ID system repaired without replacing the entire device to the iPhone X, according to a memo seen by MacRumors. The iPhone X was initially excluded from the list for this program.
The update means that Apple technicians can now repair the True Depth camera across all of Apple’s best iPhones from the iPhone X onwards, so all of the iPhones that use Face ID. Not only will this reduce the price and possibly the turnaround time of repairs for such devices, it also frees up full unit swap parts for people who need them more, reducing the impact of repairs of the iPhone.
For customers who prefer Touch ID and don’t mind the old iPhone SE’s form factor, Apple has the iPhone SE, recently refreshed to include the A15 Bionic chip and an A5 processor, as well as camera improvements.
