  • Apple posted a support/how-to article on error 53 that notes an update to iOS 9.2.1 to allow a restore for devices that had the Touch ID sensor repaired/replaced by a third party. (When I first viewed the article it was dated Dec. 21, 2015 without any info on an iOS update, but a forced refresh shows a modified Feb 18th, 2016 date, with notes on an update to iOS 9.2.1 to allow a restore using iTunes on a Mac or PC.)
    The revised article also notes:
    "If you believe that you paid for an out-of-warranty device replacement based on an error 53 issue, contact Apple Support to ask about reimbursement."
