Apple is looking to implement a permanent warning message that appears in the settings of the device to prevent third-party repairs on iPhone batteries.
Replacements of third-party batteries on the newest iPhones will result in a message being displayed under Settings in the Battery menu. “Unable to verify this iPhone has a genuine Apple battery. Health information not available for this battery.”
The message generally implies that the battery has to be replaced. However, the warning will still appear even if the new battery is a genuine one. According to iFixit, the only way to get rid of it is by authenticating the replacement battery by an Apple Store or an Apple Authorized Service Provider.
Apple’s move to prevent third-party iPhone battery repairs was first featured in a video of YouTube’s The Art of Repair channel, which said only iPhone XR, XS, and XS Max are currently impacted.
