If Apple’s newly-launched iPhone 13 range has you excited, and you can’t wait to get your hands on one of them, you’ll have to remember to handle the phone with extra care.According to a report in MacRumours, if a broken iPhone 13 screen is replaced by a third-party vendor, the Face ID on it will cease to work. This issue will arise even if it is a genuine and original iPhone 13 screen.A pop-up on the repaired iPhone will tell users, “Unable to verify this iPhone has a genuine Apple display.”

The issue was spotted by YouTube channel Phone Repair Guru, who in a video called it “catastrophic to third party repair.”Apple has often been criticised for making it difficult for its customers to opt for repairs by stores that are not affiliated with the tech giant through its Independent Repair Program.The Cupertino-based tech giant unveiled its new models — iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max earlier this month.The iPhone 13 Pro is priced at Rs 1,19,900 (onwards) and the iPhone 13 Pro Max at Rs 1,29,900. The iPhone 13, which has the new chip called the A15 Bionicm and comes in four colours, is available for Rs 79,900, while the iPhone 13 Mini is up for sale at Rs 69,900.
