You can view the repair history of your iPhone running iOS 15.2

Apple

Apple surprised us with a new feature coming to iOS 15.2 that allows you to see if a device was fixed with original apple parts or if any repairs were made with parts inadequate. If you are shopping for a used iPhone, this feature could help you decide if it is worth buying.

The function was described in a new support document from Apple (via MacRumors ). It tells you if your phone has been repaired with parts “designed, tested, and manufactured to Apple’s quality and performance standards.”

There will be some limitations regarding the type of repairs you can verify depending on the phone. If you have an iPhone XR, XS, XS Max, iPhone SE (2nd generation) and later, you can see if the battery has been replaced.

For iPhone 11, iPhone 12, and iPhone 13 models, you can see if the battery or screen was replaced.

And finally, for the Models iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 , you can see if the phone’s battery, screen or camera have been replaced and if the parts were genuine.

Yes will be replaced a part You would see the “iPhone Parts and Service History” section under the About tab on the phone. If no repairs are made, you will not see this section.

If a phone is being repaired with Genuine Apple Parts, you will see “Genuine Apple Part” next to the part that was replaced. If not, you will see ‘Unknown part’. This means that the part was replaced with a non-genuine part, already used or installed on another iPhone, or not working as expected.
