BEACON TRANSCRIPT – According to a recent reporting, the number of users receiving the error 53 message has increased. More iPhone users are getting steamed over error 52 which basically transforms your iPhone into a paperweight.
When installing a new update or software on you iPhone, it’s now unheard of to receive an error during the installation process. Things like this happen all the time, regardless whether you’re using a smartphone or a computer.
But what if I told you that there’s one error out there that can make you break in tears over your recently deceased iPhone? Yes, we are of course talking about the dreaded error 53, Apple’s sweet own of saying “Execute Order 66” when you want to repair your phone outside Apple’s authorized service.
So, what’s error 53? Basically, it’s all related to security and to the Touch ID fingerprint sensor. According to Apple’s testimony, this kind of error occurs when the software is unable to verify if the components inside your iPhone are genuine. For example, if your home key gets damaged, you would naturally have to replace it. If the product used is not Apple certified, then the ID touch fingerprint device will call up the error 53 message, turning your phone in a paperweight.
Moreover, according to the same statement issued by the tech giant, it would seem that when you take your phone to a certified Apple service, the components used to patch up your phone are capable of re-initiating the authentication process, thus proving to the Touch ID device that all the component are genuine and that no one is attempting to remove the touch device.
The same principle applies to the power cable. For example, there have been many users who have reported this error after attempting to update the smartphone using another cable. The same goes for users who turned in their phone to third-party services. In each case, the dreaded error would appear on the phone’s display. But don’t think that after you received this error your phone would sit there, motionless.
According to the users who received this message, the phone gets stuck in a reboot loop, meaning that your phone will restart each time you switch it on. Naturally, more iPhone users are getting steamed over error 53. Apple’s response was swift: use only certified services if you don’t want to wave bye-bye to your beloved handset.
What to do in order to in order to avoid the error? If you decide to go to a third-party service, ask the repairman to use the phone’s original Touch Id fingerprint sensor, home button and power cable. Do not attempt to change any of these because you will receive the error. If the home button or any of the components are beyond repair, head on over to the nearest Apple service.
Also, if you want to replace a power cable of a broken update button, do not attempt to upgrade your phone’s OS. Last, if the error does appear on your screen, turn the phone off, and replace the new parts with the original components.
