Open the iPhone display with a tool ...

Separate the main unit and display.

The replacement display will show 'Face ID is Not Available' as shown below.

According to iFixit, this happens despite the separate display and Face ID module, due to a microcontroller that's smaller than a fingernail, which wasn't on the iPhone before. That thing.

This small microcontroller is paired with the display and works with a repair approval system using the Apple Services Toolkit 2 software, which is only available to the Apple Store and Apple Authorized Repairers. This repair approval system seems to activate Face ID by entering the serial number of the iPhone and display as a repair record in Apple's cloud server, and it is a mechanism for Apple to approve / reject individual repairs. .. For this reason, iFixit described this phenomenon as a 'screen repair trap.'

It is reported that Apple has changed its policy as a result of the repair company's voice in response to this situation. Apple told IT news site The Verge that Apple plans to deliver a software update that keeps Face ID working after the display is replaced. However, the delivery date of this software update was not disclosed.
