According to The Guardian, many iPhone 6 owners are facing this problem after they have replaced their display with Touch ID and updating the iOS to the latest version. This problem was faced by most of the people who have had repaired their device by the third party. The owners are seeing “Error 53” when connected to the iTunes or had completely bricked their iPhone. The owners claim that their iPhone was running perfectly after the repair but they bricked their device after they upgraded to the latest iOS.

The iPhone owners not only bricked their device but also lost all the data that were stored in the iPhone. The device became completely useless after this error.
But Apple has finally spoken about this problem. It reads like this:

“We protect fingerprint data using a secure enclave, which is uniquely paired to the touch ID sensor. When iPhone is serviced by an authorized Apple service provider or Apple retail store for changes that affect the touch ID sensor, the pairing is re-validated. This check ensures the device and the iOS features related to touch ID remain secure. Without this unique pairing, a malicious touch ID sensor could be substituted, thereby gaining access to the secure enclave. When iOS detects that the pairing fails, touch ID, including Apple Pay, is disabled so the device remains secure.”
“When an iPhone is serviced by an unauthorized repair provider, faulty screens or other invalid components that affect the touch ID sensor could cause the check to fail if the pairing cannot be validated. With a subsequent update or restore, additional security checks result in an ‘error 53’ being displayed … If a customer encounters an unrecoverable error 53, we recommend contacting Apple support.”

This is a really serious problem for all the iPhone users. Repairing from the 3rd party were so much cheap but it almost costs $350 to repair Touch ID from the Apple if your warranty period has been finished.
What you think about this?
