Apple's Error 53: How, why and what it means to iPhone users

In case you’ve not realised, Apple is disabling iPhones that have not been repaired through official Apple service centres. This problem even applies to phones that were earlier repaired and were working fine. But now suddenly after the latest update to the IOS 9, these phones have conked off. Officially it is called Error 53.

Even some analysts agree with this thinking considering bank transactions are being handled by iOS hardware. “It is a logical move for Apple because now the iPhone handles banking, and the security of these transactions is very important,” said Sanchit Vir Gogia, chief analyst and CEO of Greyhound Research.

Although, it sure is consumer unfriendly. The Error 53 basically means that if you break your iPhone screen, it will be prudent to perhaps get it replaced from Apple and pay the extra bucks. “This will increase the cost of ownership of the iPhone for many,” says Gogia.
