The New iPhone 11 Series Alert for Replaced Displays
Among the several new features that the iPhone 11 series offers, this is one that will enable users to find out whether their damaged iPhone screen has been replaced with an original Apple spare part. This is because of an alert that will pop-up on devices that have been repaired by third-party repair centres.
While this is useful in informing users whether they are using original parts, a number of iPhone owners prefer to get their phones repaired at trusted third-party centres. People often choose a trusted source that has OEM parts, which are great in quality but are not technically original parts. There are many reasons for this including easy availability, lower costs and longer warranty coverage than what Apple provides. These parts do not hamper the functionality of the phone in any way and if the quality of the replaced screen is good, then there will be no usage issues either.
If users choose to get their display repaired from a trusted service provider like Rapid Repair, then there is nothing to worry about. The spares provided aren’t anything to be wary of since these parts are of good quality. What’s more, the spares are often backed by lifetime warranty, which should be enough to allay any fears regarding quality issues that users may have.
With some of the service centres, you also have the option to get repair services brought right to your door. Rapid Repair offers pick up and drop off services if you are unable to come to our service centre. You even have the option of same-day repairs, which will save you from the agony of having to part with your iPhone for long.
Given all of these advantages that such service centres provide, it is only natural that you opt to get your iPhone repaired from sources other than Apple. Even more so when you have lifetime warranty on the spares provided.
The display alert, which reads ‘Unable to verify this iPhone has a genuine Apple display’, will show up on the lock screen for the first four days after the repair is done. The message will then begin to appear as an alert in the main settings menu where it will appear for the next 15 days.
Thereafter, users will be able to see the message in Settings>General>About, where it is going to last for presumably as long as the phone will last. Apple, though, said that the message notwithstanding, the phone will continue to be fully functional in every aspect, including the display as well. Apple too has confirmed the phone will remain fully functional in every aspect, something that applies to the display as well.

The company has also clarified that this alert message is applicable to only the latest iPhone range – iPhone 11, iPhone Pro and iPhone Pro Max. Apple has confirmed that none of the previous generation iPhones will show any such alerts but this could well be a common feature in all iPhone devices launched henceforth. In fact, the display alert might well be replicated in all future Apple products including iPads, Macs and so on.
Meanwhile, it is not known if such messages are going to be shown for any original part replaced with a non-genuine part, or if this applies to only the display.
