An upcoming iOS update will tell you the repair history for your iPhone, including if it contains official replacement parts or “unknown” third-party components.

On Tuesday, Apple published a new support document outlining the “iPhone parts and service history” feature coming to iOS 15.2. Users will be able to go to Settings > General > About to view a new information panel containing their iPhone’s repair history. 

The repair history’s most noteworthy function is how it can detect if an iPhone contains “non genuine parts.” The information panel will display a warning symbol alongside the words “Unknown part.” The same warning will be used if iOS detects a replacement part that was previously used in another iPhone, a malfunctioning component, or an incomplete installation.
