In the recent update iOS 17.5 beta 4Apple has presented a novelty in the security of iPhones: the function Repair Status. This feature seeks to improve the device’s tracking ability even during repairs. Previously, sending an iPhone for repair required disabling the Find My feature, which was a security risk if the device was located outside of an official Apple store.

The new Repair Status feature offers a solution to this problem. Allows users to keep active tracking of the device even under repair, displaying a “Ready to Repair” message and a stethoscope icon on the iPhone, indicating that the device is still locked with the Apple ID.

However, it is crucial to know that, according to MacRumorsthe Repair Status feature is not yet fully functional in the iOS 17.5 beta. Users are advised to wait for the official and stable version to activate it.

When the feature is fully operational, it promises to change the repair process for iPhones, ensuring that devices are safe and traceable even when sent to unofficial technical services, thus reducing the risk of tampering or loss.
