As a recap, after users upgrades to iOS 9, number of iPhone owners found out that after getting the said error, there devices are automatically locked with no way of unlocking unlock them, and even worst no way of recovering the data inside the device.
The said error occurred as result of tampering with “iPhone’s TouchID sensor”. Unfortunately, this worst error can be triggered even by just replacing the device screen, Apple’s security concept is simple, if your device has been altered by third party unauthorized service, user then has no right to take it to an official Apple updates.
