Apple Pay not working after new screen replacement.
I replaced the screen on two different Apple watches and Apple Pay will not work on either after doing so. Anyone know how to fix? Tried deleting my cards and reading them but no luck.
Ifixit has a note/disclaimer that states replacing the screen disables the NFC antenna. Mine will not load wallet onto watch as well. Looking at a video where they pried off the old NFC assembly and reinstalled it on the new screen to fix this issue. I think this is what Ifixit means by “no easy fix”….but is fixable but would void new screen warranty. Haven’t tried it, as this issue was not a deal breaker for me.
Just wondering if this is always the case? I got my apple watch 4 screen fixed but lost the apple pay. it’s really a pain in the ass.
If you bought one online after market it is a chance an nfc module was not installed. Seen this a lot. You would have to desolder your original and place on new
