Apple Issues Fix for Error 53

Apple has finally made a move that numerous customers will definitely appreciate, the famous company issuing a fix for its Error 53.

Apple also apologized to customers for the inconveniences created by this error. The tech giant has recently been targeted by a series of class action lawsuits linked to its security measure, thus, maybe its fix issuing is linked to these litigation risks.
Error 53 finally fixed by Apple

So, Apple has been criticized by a series of customers who found that their iPhones became inoperable due to the existence of Error 53. This affected customers who had their home buttons repaired by third parties, something that Apple does not approve of. Apple has always claimed that it created Error 53 as a security feature to protect its customers.
This security measure is necessary to protect your device and prevent a fraudulent Touch ID sensor from being used. If a customer encounters Error 53, we encourage them to contact Apple Support," Apple said. 

However, it seems that Apple might be willing now to make things better for its customers.

Furthermore, Apple claimed that the damage suffered by users' devices might have been a "factory test."
This was designed to be a factory test and was not intended to affect customers. Customers who paid for an out-of-warranty replacement of their device based on this issue should contact AppleCare about a reimbursement, Apple said. 
Along with the fix, Apple also apologized to its customers.

However, it is important to mention that solving Error 53 does not mean that the Touch ID will be re-enabled. Apple is determined not to allow third-party replacements of home buttons to permit unauthorized access to a phone. After all, Apple has proven that security is the most important thing for its business.

Apple is in the middle of a battle with no one else than the US government in the attempt to prove that security should be protected no matter what. And it seems that Apple has numerous supporters on this.

Now, billionaire Mark Cuban has praised the tech giant for fighting the FBI on encryption.
Cuban stated that Apple did "the right thing" when it refused a request from US authorities to create a software that would allow access to the locked iPhone of one of the individuals engaged in the San Bernardino attack that led to the death of several people. "Amen. A standing ovation," Cuban wrote on his blog.

Google's CEO also defended Apple's stance on this, even though the two companies are rivals on the market.
 We build secure products to keep your information safe and we give law enforcement access to data based on valid legal orders, Sundar Pichai stated. 
But that's wholly different than requiring companies to enable hacking of customer devices & data. Could be a troubling precedent, he added. 

Exactly what Apple plans on doing and what the government is asking from the famous company are things that are yet to be fully clarified. However, most likely both Apple and the government are not going to let this go easily.
