How to update your iPhone to fix Error 53

Apple has released an iOS update to fix Error 53. Here's how to install it.

Error 53 occurs when a security check detects your Touch ID button no longer matches other components in your iPhone. It was designed to make sure no one could bypass security to get at your data or access your credit cards via Apple Pay. The "Error 53" part, however, was meant to be shown at factories, not to consumers. So, Apple has released an iOS update to fix it.

Note, this won't re-enable Touch ID, as that would be a security risk. It'll simply remove the error message. Also note, you need to use iTunes for the update, and expressly request it through the Restore button. It's a straight-forward process, and we'll walk you through it step by step!

1. Make sure iTunes is up-to-date

The first thing you need to do is make sure you're running the latest version of iTunes. If you're on a Mac:

  1. Launch iTunes from the Dock, LaunchPad, or via Spotlight.
  2. Click on the menu bar at the top.
  3. Click on iTunes and then Check for Updates.
  4. Click to install any available updates.
