Apple has released an updated version of iOS 9.2.1. What’s new in this version? Well it seems that only a very useful for users affected but is useless for everyone else: this second version of iOS 9.2.1 will allow devices blocked by Error 53 can be restored to the latest version of iOS.
With this update, Apple gives reason for users who demand the right to repair the devices in any establishment but on the other hand, is also allowing what at first said that protected the Error 53, and the possibility that we Touch ID matching one manipulated and, thereby, our data access. In addition, the Cupertino company has also written a short letter of apology to all users who have been affected.
“Some customers’ devices are showing ‘Connect to iTunes’ after attempting an iOS update or a restore from iTunes on a Mac or PC. This reports as an Error 53 in iTunes and appears when a device fails a security test. This test was designed to check whether Touch ID works properly before the device leaves the factory.
Today, Apple released a software update that allows customers who have encountered this error message to successfully restore their device using iTunes on a Mac or PC.
We apologize for any inconvenience, this was designed to be a factory test and was not intended to affect customers. Customers who paid for an out-of-warranty replacement of their device based on this issue should contact AppleCare about a reimbursement.”
Moreover, it has been confirmed one possibility we value time: Error 53 is to culminate an error. It is something that should not have happened. Depending on the version of Apple, it is a kind of quality control created only for testing at the factory.
