This is the message you will see if a non-genuine camera is placed on your iPhone 12

This Tuesday began to reach Apple mobile users the latest version of their operating system: the iOS 14.4. This is accompanied by a security measure that aims to protect users against irregular repairs to the cameras.

The scenario is for the four new iPhone 12s, and puts them in safety if they have to have their cameras replaced in a repair. This is because the system starts to identify non-genuine cameras and sends a notification to the user.

To accompany this measure, Apple shared a document on its official support page on the “importance of assistance provided by trained technicians using genuine Apple cameras”.

Apple says that “replacements not made by Apple, authorized service centers or certified technicians may not follow proper safety and repair procedures and may result in improper operation or problems with image quality or general safety device ”.

In addition, “repairs that do not properly replace screws or covers may leave loose parts that can damage the battery, cause overheating or result in injury”.

There are also three points that can result in a negative experience when replacing a non-genuine Apple camera.

  • The camera does not focus correctly or the images are not clear
  • When using Vertical Mode, what you are shooting is not in focus or only partially focused
  • A third-party app using the camera may block or shut down unexpectedly
  • The real-time preview on third-party apps may appear blank or may be blocked

As mentioned above, this message applies to iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 mini. It will be visible when you go to Settings> General> Information. However, this does not affect the ability to use the iPhone and the camera.
