The tech giant Apple could soon be facing lawsuits over the mysterious new error 53, which is bricking iPhones and making them unusable.
Many Apple users have started complaining from a mysterious new error, known as error 53, which appears on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus if the phone’s home button or the screen gets replaced in an unofficial Apple repair store. The cause of the error is a system security feature, which doesn’t allow any modifications on iPhones and the error actually renders the iPhone completely unusable for its owner.
Apparently, Apple have done this in an attempt to get people to either pay for their repair stores’ services or to have a useless iPhone. Since many iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus owners either don’t have an easy access to an authorized Apple repair store or find it too expensive to take their phones there instead of to third parties. Unfortunately, that eventually results in the mysterious error, which in turn leads to more money blown on Apple’s services. While the company’s officials haven’t revealed much about this security feature, it’s become an inevitable pain in the neck of many users, who are threatening to sue the tech giant. It seems that the error doesn’t show up immediately, but it eventually renders iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus devices out of service. What’s even worse is that if Apple users decide to turn towards an official repair store, their warranty will allow them to get a new smartphone, which means eventually losing some important information from their already unusable older phone.
If error 53 keeps showing up Apple could be facing a massive explosion of lawsuits filed by iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users from all over the world – especially from some parts of Europe where authorized Apple repair shops can’t be found on each corner.
