Cupertino-based tech giant Apple is planning to repair Face ID for the iPhone XS and newer without replacing the entire device.

Apple said authorized technicians would soon have access to a new TrueDepth Camera service part containing all Face ID and front camera modules, allowing for same-unit repairs, reports MacRumors.

The report added that this will reduce the number of whole-unit repairs completed as part of the company’s commitment to reduce the carbon footprint of its products.

Apple Store and Apple Authorised Service Providers will use a diagnostic tool called Apple Service Toolkit to determine if a device qualifies for same-unit Face ID repair instead of a whole-unit repair or ‘iPhone Rear System’ repair.

Apple originally introduced the Face ID technology on the iPhone X.

Last year, Apple announced a new self-service repair program for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13, that will allow customers who feel comfortable carrying out their own repairs using genuine Apple parts. Customers will also receive recycling credit when they return their used parts after fixing their devices.

Meanwhile, Apple is planning to launch the iPhone 14 in or around September, and now a report from a Chinese media outlet claims that TSMC is ready to take all 5G modem orders for its upcoming iPhones.
