A legal application was filled against Apple by iPhone customers who have the “error 53”


The suit is seeking an order that would force Apple to stop disabling iPhones that have been repaired by a third-party and provide a software update that restores functionality to them. It’s also requested that Apple to foot the bill for repairing complainants’ devices under warranty. PCVA accuses Apple of exploiting the “cult-like following” it enjoys and argues the class action should proceed on the basis that damages affecting thousands of iPhones exceed $5m. Additionally, it says that Apple should have warned owners that using an unapproved repair service could trigger Error 53.  Apple has explained that Error 53 is a security measure, since Touch ID is a sensitive component linked to Apple Pay. In other words, they says that this is not a bug, but a security feature.
