Apple Tries to Justify Service Warning, Disabled Battery Health Feature After Battery Replacement

Apple has issued a statement attempting to justify its decision to display a service warning and disable Battery Health after an unauthorized battery replacement.

As recently reported by iFixit and TheArtofRepair, if you replace the battery of your iPhone XR or XS with either a genuine Apple battery or a third party battery, your iPhone will indicate that the battery needs ‘Service’ and will refuse to display battery health information. The move is a clear attempt to discourage user replacement.

Here’s Apple’s statement as provided to iMore:
