Apple-iPhone-6s-plus-review

Some of the iPhone users are getting error “Error 53”, Basically this error is related to home button A.K.A Touch ID.

We all know the fact that Touch ID has finger print sensor which allows users to unlock there  phones instead of passcode and also allow to make mobile payment etc.

If you are one those who had damaged the touch id or home button and got it replaced by an non-Apple repairer and then the iOS will detect a unofficial touch id and will shut down your device and there is no solution for you to fix that other then going to official repairer and getting a official touch id button or you can contact apple support for more information.

Here is what Apple has to say about this issue :

We take customer security very seriously and Error 53 is the result of security checks designed to protect our customers. iOS checks that the Touch ID sensor in your iPhone or iPad correctly matches your device’s other components.

If iOS finds a mismatch, the check fails and Touch ID, including for Apple Pay use, is disabled. This security measure is necessary to protect your device and prevent a fraudulent Touch ID sensor from being used. If a customer encounters Error 53, we encourage them to contact Apple Support. 

But things are not done yet, many people are receiving this messages without altered or repaired touch id.

People around the globe are getting crazy after apple’s statement,A reader of the Boing Boing technology blog said :

If they included a warning in the package ‘tamper resistance’ feature that works by non-Apple-authorised repair services may be mistaken for tampering attempts, and lead to the phone being disabled’, then it would be purely a feature … By concealing the feature prior to sales, and only even revealing it after being repeatedly pressured over it, Apple turned what could have been a feature into a landmine.
