Starting with the iPhone 11, Apple has added a warning to iOS that tells the user when the device has a non-authentic display – which was later extended to third-party internal batteries, and now iOS 14.4 will alert users when it detects a non-genuine camera on the iPhone.
Found by MacArmer and confirmed by 9to5Mac, the second beta release of iOS 14.4 brings a new message that will appear for devices with cameras that are not native Apple hardware. “Unable to verify that this iPhone has a real Apple camera,” the message said, noting whether this applies to all iPhones or iPhone 12 models only.
Under these terms, the iOS Settings app will fix the alert just as it did with the non-genuine display and battery alerts. The message probably won’t interfere with how the camera works even though the non-authentic components aren’t as standard as the original Apple hardware.
Of course Apple recommends that customers take their iPhones and other Apple devices to an Apple Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider (AASP) for certified repairs.
