In advance of the upcoming official release of its iOS 15.2 update for iPhones later this month, Apple has now previewed a new and useful feature which will allow iPhone users to check their device's repair history and whether or not genuine Apple parts were used as replacements.

Apple's iOS 15.2 update will most likely be released in the coming weeks, and some users may be excited to hear that the Cupertino-based company decided to introduce a new feature that allows customers to easily access the repair history of their device and see whether or not defective components were replaced with genuine Apple parts.

After installing the aforementioned iOS 15.2 update, said info will be shown in the regular iPhone settings app when tapping on the General > About tabs. Depending on the iPhone model, this new feature will list replaced batteries, displays and cameras. It will also issue a warning sign if an unknown part is detected, but it will also show that warning if a genuine part was used in another iPhone before or if the part does not work as expected.

This feature is fully available on iPhone 12 models (from US$529 on Amazon) or newer. iPhone 11 models on the other hand can only detect battery and display repairs, while iPhone XS models and the 2020 iPhone SE can only register replaced batteries. Additional information on the iOS 15.2 iPhone parts and service history feature can be found in the according official support document on Apple's website.

My fascination for technology goes back a long way to the Pentium II era. Modding, overclocking and treasuring computer hardware has since become an integral part of my life. As a student, I further developed a keen interest in mobile technologies that can make the stressful college life so much easier. After I fell in love with the creation of digital content while working in a marketing position, I now scour the web to bring you the most exciting topics in the world of tech. Outside the office, I’m particularly passionate about motorsports and mountain biking.
