Introducción

With the diffused application of Face ID on iPhone X – 11 series, Face ID failure also appears at a high frequency. As our previous Face ID teardown video has introduced, Face ID can be easily damaged and hardly repaired. If the problem is related to the flex cable, then it’s simple. However, based on statistics of REWA chip-level motherboard repair service, Face ID failure is caused by damage of the Flood illuminator/Dot Projector in most cases, which can not be repaired.

    • We can confirm now that the Dot Projector has malfunctioned.

    • This is the fault and the problem cannot be fixed.

  6. The three parts ( infrared camera, flood illuminator and dot projector) are paired to the phone. Damage of any one of them can cause Face ID failure and such an issue is irreparable.
