Introducción

Replacing of iPhone X display assembly usually won’t affect Face ID. However, we get complaints from our clients that Face ID on the phone failed after replacing of the display assembly. We have done some researches and our guess is that the problem might be caused by improper operation during the replacing process, which results in damage of flex cables or other components.
