According to The Verge Apple has stated it will now introduce an iOS update that will allow for standard display repairs that do not disable Face ID.
As we mentioned, with the iPhone 13, Apple added a microcontroller that pairs the phone to its display. This microcontroller must be paired to the any new display, which independent repair shops cannot do. Without this, swapping an iPhone 13 display results in an error message that says “Unable to activate Face ID.”
The repair is impossible to complete without micosoldering.
The software update that Apple says they will implement, will remove this issue.
There is no word on when Apple will update this, but iOS 15.2 is in beta testing at the current time and the feature could be introduced in that update.—
