Soon after the publication of the iFixit resource about the ban on Apple's self-replacement of iPhone batteries, users actively criticized the new policy of the vendor. Representatives of the Corporation made a statement in response and explained the reasons for the controversial decision.
The company claims blocking battery monitoring should protect users from using damaged, low-quality or used batteries, which could potentially compromise the safety of the devices and their owners. Apple also noted that the recommendation to contact only branded service points does not affect the ability of owners to use their iPhones.
However, the issue for the original battery that is installed outside the authorized service center for service. According to the iFixit report, a proprietary programmer is required for "correct" battery replacement. "Victims" of the annoying message were the owners of iPhone XR, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, running iOS 12 and IOS 13 beta versions.
