Apple has pushed the small firmware update to fix iOS 9.2.1 iPhone Error 53 that affected multiple devices. An updated version of iOS 9.2.1 (build 13D20) was released to fix the issue that could ‘brick’ a user’s iPhones if it received a third-party Touch ID sensor replacement instead of one of Apple’s own replacements. iOS 9.2.1 has been the latest software version for iDevices that was launched a month ago and was carrying 13D15 build number. And now Apple released it updated version with the fix option.

According to recent reports the issue was affecting such iDevice as iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. So if you were stuck with a bricked iPhone then the only way to fix the issue is to install iOS 9.2.1 build 13D20.

How To Fix Error 53 On iOS 9.2.1 iPhone

Since the update isn’t available as an OTA update, you will have to download the firmware manually to install it through iTunes. Before proceeding make sure the latest version of iTunes is installed on your device. Click on iTunes in the menu bar and then click on “Check for updates.”

After you’ve downloaded the appropriate file, you can launch iTunes and prepare to restore to the iOS 9.2.1 build 13D20 release. After the restore is complete, you should be able to turn and start to use your iOS 9.2 device again.

Please note that a restore will wipe your device of its contents, so you should restore from an iCloud or iTunes backup after the restore to bring back all your apps and settings you had before. The work is done successfully and it should fix iOS 9.2.1 iPhone Error 53.

After installing iOS 9.2.1 build 13D20, you will have to bring your iPhone to an Apple Store or Apple Authorized Repair center to have the Home button replaced by a legitimate technician. This is the only method you can ever use Touch ID on your device again if you had a third-party Touch ID sensor installed on it currently.

Apple now says the Error 53 bricking issue was meant to be a factory test and was never intended to affect customers.
