Will be taking iPhone 6 in for screen replacement. Will they require a reset?
No they won't if it's strictly for the screen. Still it's recommended to backup in case they mess up.
Respectfully, I have to disagree with you.
I took my 6+ in a little over a month ago for a screen replacement. Since it was a non-warranty replacement I did not bother to hide my jailbreak. I figured Apple would just replace the screen.
The genius I dealt with demanded that I restore. She stated that they would do no work on my phone unless I restored it. And this was before she even knew about my jailbreak.
Apple's passive-aggressive way of moving you forward.
Wow that's awful. I wouldn't want to restore just for a hardware change that has no effect on software.
Me either. But it was not unexpected. But I got the better end of the deal anyway.
The genius did not want to listen to me about placing my iPhone in DFU mode first. It was a busy night and she seemed to be in a rush. The result of the bootloop that my phone went into was that Apple decided to blame it on iOS9. So, for the price of the screen repair they gave me a brand new iPhone 6+.
Wow that's a great deal. I may keep that in mind in the future
I'm thinking for them its a security issue. Don't want you to be able to say they stole your info.
That makes sense. They don't want to be liable for employees exposing confidential data or compromising your personal security.
I took it in, they didn't reset it. Just replaced the screen for the front camera crescent issue.
That means it was as I suspected and I got a prissy, holier-than-though ******* genius who was just in a pissy mood.
Glad you got your's taken care of ok though.
