iOS 15.2 adds “Parts and Service History” to iPhone About settings

Juli Clover, MacRumors:

With the launch of iOS 15.2, Apple is adding a new “Parts and Service History” section to the Settings app that will let users see the service history of their iPhones and confirm that components used for repairs are genuine.

From the related Apple support document:

With iOS 15.2 and later, you can go to Settings > General > About to see the parts and service history of your iPhone.

Here are the specifics:

  • For iPhone XR, XS, XS Max, and later, including iPhone SE (2nd generation), you can see if the battery has been replaced.
  • For iPhone 11 models, iPhone 12 models, and iPhone 13 models, you can see if the battery or display have been replaced.
  • For iPhone 12 models and iPhone 13 models, you can see if the battery, display, or camera have been replaced.


Information about parts and service history is collected by Apple and stored as part of the device information maintained for your iPhone. This information is used for service needs, safety analysis, and to improve future products.

If the battery, display, or camera have not been replaced, then you won’t see parts and service history.

If you are buying a used iPhone, or sent your iPhone away for repair, this is an easy way to check a bit of repair history and a way to tell if there are any non-Apple parts in the device.

Personally, I appreciate the heads up. Will this make its way to iPad? How about the Mac?
