‘Error 53’ issue to which we are talking about is related to Touch ID. This error can disable your iPhone and you are left with no option other than getting a new phone.

Escape to repair your Apple iPhone from unauthorized technician
This issue may sound old to you but actually it is not. Recently a Guardian report has posted about this issue saying:
“We take customer security very seriously and Error 53 is the result of security checks designed to protect our customers. iOS checks that the Touch ID sensor in your iPhone or iPad correctly matches your device’s other components. If iOS finds a mismatch, the check fails and Touch ID, including for Apple Pay use, is disabled.
This security measure is necessary to protect your device and prevent a fraudulent Touch ID sensor from being used. If a customer encounters Error 53, we encourage them to contact Apple Support.”
Apple has responded to this report saying that this issue basically occurs when the iPhone is being repaired by an unauthorized technician. If you will do so your phone will get locked to protect the device’s security. The Touch ID issue is quite a serious one as every Apple iPhone device is linked to a specific Touch ID and it will not going to work in case if the original fails. It might be interesting for you to know that ‘Error 53’ has not even been listed on the official known number of Apple errors.
Currently, the best solution is you should not try fixing or repairing your Apple iPhone device by yourself. Just take it straight to the Apple store with the request for a replacement for your device. You can also try to get extended warranty from the AppleCare.
