A number of Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are showing a rare error. The error 53 is spreading in recent weeks between the owners of iPhone 6 and the plus version, but the solution may be impossible or nearly so .
After an initial panic in the network, on some forums I have appeared the first solutions and applications that confirmed that the problem appeared after a third-party repair, then Unofficial Apple has replaced the display or open the device.
In fact, after having brought the iPhone 6 in a non-authorized service center, the first reset or after a few minutes of use, the iPhone 6 stops working and if we try to restore it will display the iTunes Error 53.
The iTunes Error 53 problem was due to the button that integrates TouchID and the cable that connects to the motherboard, and although this does not create problems in the process of restoration or upgrade to iOS 9 error 53 may show up and make the device unusable without any possibility to recover the device.
So after the intervention not technical “outside” would perform properly the realignment between the chip that manages the access to the enclave that contains user data such as fingerprints and soon iOS 9 performs a test of integrity Touch ID feature will appear error 53.
According to Apple the error is due precisely to a “non-certification” of the components that therefore would prevent the operating system from functioning properly and therefore the only way is to take your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus in an Apple but the damage it could be high. Another solution could be to change the entire piece of touchID that the service centers “always unauthorized” you do pay dearly. To you the choice.
Our advice is always to avoid trusting our device not authorized service centers and entrust your “expensive” iPhone to Apple center. Here’s the press release from Apple , which confirms what was written in the article.
“We protect fingerprint data using a secure enclave, Which is uniquely paired to the touch sensor ID. When iPhone is serviced by an Authorized Apple Service Provider or Apple retail store for That changes affect the touch sensor ID, the pairing is re-validated. This check Ensures the iOS device and the features related to touch ID remain secure. Without this unique pairing, a malicious touch ID sensor could be substituted, Thereby Gaining access to the secure enclave. When iOS That detects the pairing fails, touch ID, including Apple Pay, is disabled so the device remains secure … when an iPhone is serviced by an unauthorized repair provider, faulty screens or other invalid components That affect the Touch ID sensor could cause the check to fail if the pairing can not be validated. With a Subsequent update or restore, additional security checks result in an ‘error 53’ being displayed.
