How to Safely Fix the 'Unknown Part' Warning on Your iPhone Camera?

The Apple iPhone is one of the most popular and widely used smartphones in the world due to its easy-to-use operating system, exceptional security system, flawless design, and outstanding cameras. According to the most recent statistics, 30.44% of smartphone users worldwide use an Apple iPhone, which means that more than three out of four smartphone users own an Apple iPhone.


If you are an iPhone user or technician, you might have come across an 'Unknown Part' warning message on your camera or your customer. This message is an important camera message that can appear from the iPhone 12 and later series. It can be quite alarming for iPhone owners, and it might affect the device's performance, causing trouble in taking photos. In this article, we'll discuss what this message means, how to solve it, and how to prevent it from appearing on your iPhone camera.

Why is My iPhone Showing the Unknown Part of the Camera?

The Apple iPhone has one of the best cameras on the market. There are a number of possible reasons why an unknown part issue could occur.


  • Manufacturing Defect: This kind of problem could happen during the production process, a camera may contain a part that has been incorrectly included or installed. It may occur as a result of human error or a quality control issue. Even a number of iPhone 14 users have reported this problem.
  • Software Glitch: While Apple regularly updates its IOS operating system with new features and bug fixes, this issue may arise as a result of new policies or bugs within the software. The problem has been reported by some Apple users on Apple's community forum after the phone was upgraded to the newest operating system.
  • Modification or Repair: Either the original or third-party rear camera replacement can cause this issue to appear.

iPhone 12 Mini Battery Replacement: Step-by-Step Guide

Are you facing battery issues with your iPhone 12 Mini? Does your phone's battery life seem to be significantly shorter than when you first bought it? If so, it may be time to replace the battery. In this article, we will provide a step-by-step guide to replacing the battery in your iPhone 12 Mini. We will also introduce an innovative method that uses REFOX pre-programmed battery tag-on flex cable to make the process more efficient and convenient.


Why Replace Your iPhone Battery?

iPhone batteries are designed to retain 80% of their capacity for up to 500 charge cycles, which typically lasts for around 18-24 months for most users. However, as time passes, the battery in your phone may degrade, causing it to lose its ability to hold a charge. This can lead to shorter battery life and slower performance.


Replacing the battery in your iPhone can help to restore its performance and extend its lifespan. With a new battery, your phone will be able to hold a charge for longer and perform better.


Tools to Follow this Guide

It is important to have the right tools on hand when following a guide for repairing an iPhone battery or display. We have used a number of tools and repair parts in this guide to make our work more efficient and time-saving. The following is a list of the resources we used.

  • REPART iPhone 12 Mini Battery
  • REFOX RP30 Battery Detection Module & Tag-on Cables
  • REPART iPhone Battery Cell Replacement - Standard Capacity
  • REFOX Mobile Phone Battery Welding Fixture
  • REFOX RS52 Cell Phone Screen Holder
  • REFOX Mobile Phone Battery Welding Fixture
  • Ceramic Scissor
  • Grinding Pen
  • Spot Welder

With these tools and more, it is possible to successfully and efficiently repair an iPhone battery. In addition, all the tools and parts can be found on the REWA Shop.


How to Replace iPhone Battery

It can be complicated to replace the battery in an iPhone 12 Mini. The good news is that with the right tools and an appropriate guide, anyone can replace an iPhone battery successfully. In addition, we used innovative methods and advanced tools in this guide in order to increase success rates. Please find below a step-by-step guide that will assist you:


Step 1: Remove the Battery

The first step in this guide is to separate the old battery from the iPhone 12 Mini. In order to accomplish this, we used the REFOX RS52 Cell Phone Screen Holder. As soon as the battery has been removed, it is important to peel off the protective tape and remove the bracket. 



Step 2: Remove the Battery BMS Board

The next step is to remove the battery BMS board.  To separate the BMS board, remove the protective tape carefully, remove the bracket, and use ceramic scissors to disconnect the anode and cathode. 



Step 3: Gringding And Soldering

Now you need to use a grinding pen to grind the solder point. Put the battery cell into the welding clamp fixture, and settle the cathode lead and anode lead under the BMS board. Be sure to align the anode and cathode leads respectively. After aligning the battery leads, solder them with the spot welder. After soldering the leads, fold them well and put them on the protection bracket. Then, wrap another layer of protection tape around the outside. Connect the tag-on flex to the battery and fold it to the right position as shown below. 

Step 4: Install the New Battery

Install the new battery back into your iPhone 12 Mini and turn it on.



Step 5: Check Battery Health

Click "Settings>Battery>Battery Health & Charging" and then check the battery condition. You should see that the maximum capacity is 100%.

Note: In order to boot up, you must connect the power cable or use the same type of battery



The New Method

In the past, it was necessary to operate through a programmer, battery detection modules, and tag-on flex to restore battery health and cycle time. However, with the new REFOX pre-programmed battery tag-on flex, the process has become more efficient and convenient.


The new method for battery data repair with iPhone 12 Mini battery cell replacement is similar to the previous method. The main purpose is to transplant the original Battery BMS board to solve the pop-up message, which allows the phone to detect the same battery code as the original after battery replacement.



After connecting the tag-on flex, you can reboot directly with the REFOX pre-programmed battery tag-on flex. You no longer need to connect the power cable or use the same type of battery to boot up.
