On December 17, Apple released iOS 15.2 to all supported iPhone devices. According to Apple, the update brings a number of new features such as app security reporting, alerting parents when minors send or receive “sensitive” photos, and more.
iOS 15.2 update brings many new features and fixes backlog
However, in recent times, many used iPhone stores have warned that iOS 15.2 has many serious errors, bad performance, and even damage. Meanwhile, on major discussion forums such as Apple support forums, Reddit… there are very few reflections related to iOS 15.2.
Many iPhone stores simultaneously voiced iOS 15.2 “major error”
To verify this, we conducted a community survey in Hue, with 30 iPhone users. As a result, up to 26 out of 30 people (accounting for nearly 87%) have successfully upgraded to iOS 15.2. The majority of survey respondents who upgraded to iOS 15.2 think that this update fixes the keyboard “jumping” error on the previous version, while the rest say there is no difference compared to the previous version. with earlier iOS 15.1/15.1.1.
According to research, the assumption that iOS 15.2 is prone to problems may stem from the feature of displaying parts that have been replaced on the iPhone, which has just been added by Apple to this version.
Specifically, this feature will display replaced parts and components on iPhone in Settings > General > About, and this feature is available for iPhone Xs series and later (from 2018). Depending on the model, the feature will display the changed parts as follows:
- iPhone Xs/Xs Max/Xr: display only for battery.
- iPhone 11 series and iPhone SE (2020): battery and screen.
- iPhone 12 series and iPhone 13 series: battery, screen and camera.
For machines that have not been replaced or repaired with the corresponding components above, the system will not display this item. However, the parts that have been replaced and repaired will be displayed in a list and classified as follows:
- Genuine Apple Parts: when clicked, you will be redirected to Apple’s website, clearly displaying replacement and repair information such as the date it was made, the unit made, and information about the part being replaced.
- Non-genuine Apple parts: will be displayed as a warning with the content “unknown part”.
As such, this feature will reveal all “fake goods” iPhones, which are very concerned by disreputable second-hand iPhone stores.
