Apple to Soon Add Support to Third-Party Displays and Batteries on iPhones

Apple will add support for third-party displays and batteries on its iPhones by the end of 2024.

Apple published a white paper - “Longevity, by Design '' which explains the company's principles to improve the longevity of devices.
In the white paper, the company says that they will allow consumers to activate True Tone on the iPhones with third-party displays. "In an effort to offer more complete support for third-party parts, starting later in 2024, Apple will allow consumers to activate True Tone with third-party parts to the best performance that can be provided," the white paper read.
It also further said that the consumers can deactivate True Tone in Settings if the display does not perform to their satisfaction.
In terms of battery, Apple says iPhones with third-party batteries will show battery health metrics. "Currently, battery health metrics such as maximum capacity and cycle count are not presented to consumers whose devices have third-party batteries. This is because the accuracy of these metrics cannot be verified by Apple. In fact, an Apple internal analysis has found that some third-party batteries sold as new are actually secondhand, with battery health metrics manipulated to appear as new," read the white paper.
"In an effort to improve support for third-party batteries, starting later in 2024, Apple will display battery health metrics with a notification stating that Apple cannot verify the information presented. When selecting a third-party battery for repair, we encourage all consumers to confirm that the product meets stringent safety requirements," it further added.
All these changes will come into effect by the end of the year. However, Apple did not mention any specific date.
