Some photos of Apple's secret 'iPhone Calibration Machine' has been leaked online. The machine is used to monopolize certain types of iPhone screen replacements including calibrating the camera and sensors.

As described by a third source, Apple started using these soon after the release of the iPhone 5S.

The image of the machine was showed by Jason Koebler via Motherboard's as snapped and sent by an anonymous tipster who used to work at the Apple Store.

"It was a big clunky machine that honestly looked like someone built it in their backyard," a former Apple Genius tells Koebler. "There were different 'moulds' that different iPhone models would go into before going in the machine, and it would take around 30 minutes … there was some weird liquid that needed to be placed in the machine that we would have to wear gloves with to fix it. Lots of gas type valves and whatnot. It literally looked like some backyard home job. Not very Apple-like at all."

The shapes seen on the left in the image below are for calibrating the iPhone's camera. The "flock paper" and "gray card" are for calibrating the iPhone's screen colors.

It's not surprising that Apple has proprietary technology to test iPhone repairs before they're given back to customers, but the most important thing the machine does is allow a new Touch ID button to be paired with an old device. 

It would be great if a machine like that were available to independent repair shops. Isn’t it?? Let us know what you think in the comment below.
