Error 53 showed up on iPhone 6, 6S, 6 Plus and 6S Plus gadgets after a do-it-without anyone else’s help or third party repair work supplanted the Home button – which incorporates the Touch ID unique finger print scanning validation sensor – the connecting cable, and in few times the screen. Once the error showed up, the iPhone was “bricked,” or rendered unusable.
Reports of Error 53 started resentment among some iPhone owners and were under criticism by Kyle Wiens, the author of iFixit.com, who considered it to be a danger to do-it-yourself and anyone else’s help repairs. “Owners have the privilege to repair their items and get them repaired by professionals they trust,” Wiens said in an email to those who are interested last week.

If iOS finds a mismatch, the check fails and Touch ID, including for Apple Pay use, is disabled. This security measure is necessary to protect your device and prevent a fraudulent Touch ID sensor from being used.”
The operating system will carry on keeping a check for un-matched components, According to Apple, if iOS detects the changed parts, it will disable Touch ID.
