  • Avant de commencer, déchargez votre batterie iPhone en dessous de 25%. Une batterie lithium-ion chargée peut prendre feu et / ou exploser si elle est perforée accidentellement.

  • Éteignez votre iPhone avant de commencer le démontage.

  • Sur le boîtier arrière de votre iPhone 4, il y a ou bien deux vis cruciformes #000 ou bien des vis Apple 5 points Pentalobe (deuxième image). Vérifiez de quelles vis il s'agit et assurez-vous d'avoir le tournevis qu'il vous faut pour les enlever.

  • Enlevez les deux vis de 3,6 mm (Pentalobe ou cruciforme #000) près du connecteur de dock.

    • Assurez-vous que le tournevis a une bonne prise lorsque vous retirez les vis Pentalobe, car elles dérapent très facilement.

  • Lors du remontage, nous vous conseillons de remplacer les vis 5 points par des vis cruciformes équivalentes. Notre Liberation Kit vous fournit les outils et les vis nécessaires pour remplacer les vis Pentalobe par des vis cruciformes.

Caution: New phones may contain T1 screw heads instead of Phillips.

any news on those screwdrivers? where can we buy them?

using something like the 18-compartment tray will GREATLY help with this one; there are over a dozen groups of parts. For re-assembly having a digital calipers to measure the 2.4 vs the 2.6mm screws also helps greatly.

My method for hardware management during delicate phone surgery is to take and print out on 8.5"x11' paper, one or more pictures of the open phone in various stages of disassembly, and then tape the screws to the appropriate spots on the pictures. Also write numbers on the pictures next the screws to indicate the order in which you removed them.

I use a plastic egg tray, I drop all the screws and small parts (like the camera) for each step into the same egg indentation. You can see that the screws are different lengths, so I don't put one screw into it's own spot. I used 5 egg indentations to replace my screen.

I did a successful surgery on my iPhone, be warned this is not for the faint of heart!

I've done iPod screen replacements, battery replacements, this is by far much more difficult and intricate.

Great write up! Thanks a million.

I've changed some iPod screens as well and that has been the least pleasant experience so far. Glue and the main connector that has to be unwrapped and connected from the rear where you have no feel or control where it belongs.

iPhone repair is complex, but doable and has very few "traps".

Couldn't even get both screws out of the bottom of the case. One was easy and other refuses to budge. Screws so small I can't see if it is turning or screw driver is properly seated. Sad I too have done screen replacements on other phones. Don't know any secrets to get the screw out

ckracht - Réponse

I also have a problem with seeing what is happening with some of those tiny little screws and parts. For other projects that I do, I use an Opti-Visor. It slips over your head and provides 10x magnification. ( You can find them on Amazon).

Yeah, it adds cost to the project and you would have to wait for delivery, but it sure makes a world of difference in seeing what you are working with / on.

On an early iPhone 4 I found that the #000 Phillips bit included in the 54 Bit Driver Kit didn't actually fit the screws. However the JIS #000 also in the kit did fit quite well. This is due to the JIS bits "thinner" design to prevent camming out of the slot. Otherwise everything went well. Looking forward to replacing the battery in my other phone that has the pentalobe screws. Glad I got the 54 Bit kit!

What does the park that is gold and next to the 4.8mm screw for the antenna? Looks like I am missing that part and almost positive that is why I can't pick up or connect to any wifi signals. I have the screw and the antenna from another phone that is working and tried it on the broken phone and still doesn't work. Only thing different is that gold metal piece to the left of that 4.8 mm screw. Can I buy that part? how do I attach it?

For organisation of the parts and for a much easier process of rebuilding i use a big magnetic flat surface with a grid drawn on it. Then I use a dry erase marker to make any notes I need and to number the parts in order as i disassemble . Believe me it saves a lot of time and hassle especially if you drop one of those tiny screws good luck finding it but when your working over the magnet and drop a screw its going to be right where it fell. At first I tried the piece of paper to keep organised but all it takes is one small slip and you move the paper too quick and your left with a jumbled bunch of screws and parts and a painstaking task of putting it all back correctly, aka a big waist of time and effort.

Remove the single 2.5 mm Phillips screw securing the battery connector to the logic board- for me this Phillips screw won't budge from its place have tried all the phillips combinations 000, 00, 0, 1 and the straight /slotted 1.5 mm but nothing. can some help me please purchased a replacement battery for my iPhone 4 but not able to do it just because of this screw.

If the screw head is not buggered, press the tip of a hot soldering iron to the screw for a second or two. Don't get it too hot, or you'll damage something.

splaye -

don't use hot soldering iron . the female outlet the battery plugs into is very fragile . for no extra money you can buy a battery that has magnetic tools specifically to pick this screw out . if worse comes to worse be certain the screw will come no looser then use tweezers and pick it out . the #1 fear with this technique is DO NOT DROP THE SCREW . I have done this and crawling on my hands and knees till I find it was depressing

I bought a Mmobiel branded replacement iphone 4 battery, but it doesn't fit – the pins on the connector are (very) slightly different in pitch to my original battery.

There is a small black L-shaped bracket of some sort that tits between the battery connector and the motherboard socket, with a loop on one corner that sits betwen the riserand the battery connector. Remove this now, and do not forget to re install it on assembly.

When reattaching this bracket make sure your Battery ribbon is already tucked underneath the battery with only the minimum clearance required. Then make sure the brackets overhang is over the battery ribbon. Dont try to slide it under the Ribbon.

crimney - Réponse

In Step 5 be EXTRA careful with the battery connector as the socket can come off extremely easy. This can mess up the replacement a little bit and cost you extra. Otherwise, this guide is excellent.

Good luck, fixers!

mateuszkus - Réponse

When removing this L shaped piece, it should be shown ON CAMERA where it came from and the exact position it was in while in the phone, I had to take 2 screws (not 1 like said in the video) out to get to this piece and once that second screw came up I didn't get a chance to see where this piece came from because it popped right out. I was extremely nervous but I believe I got it back in properly.

Just be careful when removing the battery with the plastic pull tab. On some units, they use so much glue that it's virtually impossible to take the battery.

In such an instance, you could use the iPod opening tool to assist (just be careful where you stick it!)

klubn - Réponse

use the iPod opening tool to pry gently under the battery from the outer edge of the phone and work towards the plastic tab. the tab is not actually attached to the battery itself, but a plastic sheet between the battery and inner frame. the adhesive on the battery tends to be under the edge of the battery nearest the center of the phone.

David Iwanicki - Réponse

Understand that the plastic pull tab is part of the phone. It sits under the battery like a tray and is not connected to the battery so it needs to stay in tact.

mattcfi - Réponse

once the iphone restarted, the battery was at 30%.

baldus - Réponse

This i think is the most diffucult part.

Because they use so much glue on it. I have to did this with so much force.

Glad that i didn't kill the circuit board when i took this out.

Shoung0690 - Réponse

My battery was so firmly glued in, it took a long time to slowly pry it loose. Patience is the key to this process. I could see easily damaging the circuit board by using too much force. The plastic tab did not help at all.

The ribbon cable attaching the new battery to the battery connector clip is longer than the original. I clicked the clip into the socket first and then was very careful to fold the excess while putting the battery back in so the ribbon cable didn't kink. One kink in this could sever the battery leads.

drathbun - Réponse

My ribbon cable was also longer than the original. How did you get it to not kink while placing the batter back into the phone? That seems to be my only hang up at the moment

cvbaseballsean22 -

Piece of cake! The hardest part was being sure the outer pentalobe screws were actually turning and I wasn't stripping them. Battery was glued firmly in, so I loosened it from the outside instead of using the plastic pull-tab. I pre-bent the battery connector neck before putting it back in and had no problems with it fitting in. Getting the battery connector aligned with the antenna piece underneath was a bit fiddly. Got the case back on, put in the new screws, and powered the phone on without problem. Had 40% charge, all seems well. Yippee!

chezbuttons - Réponse

Do NOT use a spudger or similar type of prising tool to try lift up the battery. Instead, just warm up the whole area with a hot air gun or hair drier to soften the glue.

The reason why I say don't use an implement to try lift the battery is because far too many times I've seen punctured & bent batteries come in to this workshop that have to be thrown out for safety reasons. It only takes a grain of sand, or a burr on the spudger and you're risking a potential cell rupture and potential fire.

Just use a bit of heat ( not a lot! ) to soften up the glue and it'll come away with the plastic pull tab.

Paul L Daniels - Réponse

These instructions don't mention putting the 2.5mm screw back in. I found this very challenging because it is so short, so very difficult to line it up to get it back in the hole, and very easy to drop it inside the phone. Take care.

robshopping - Réponse

Non problem with reassembly - just took patience - my is that the phone now does not want to charge the battery. It shows taht the battery is dead and charger needs to be connected but does not charge?

What have I not done coreectly - or at least what can I check to determine the problem?

Thanks

Richard Bebee - Réponse

Apparently it's not necessary to remove the battery, but try at least (I'm curious).

The battery was stuck (too much glue) and the plastic tab didn't help, and I ripped it...

So I use the plastic opening tool on the other side to remove really gently the battery, it was really really stucked with the glue... Now I'll know when I'll need to change it.

I put a little piece of tape to repair the plastic tab for the next time.

For the other part of the guide, it was a piece of cake and I'm a bad bad handyman :)

Thanks for the guide!

tasseb - Réponse

You are right. This is the reason why their is simpler guide: iPhone 4 Battery disconnection to be used when there is no necessity for removing the battery. Disconnection is sufficient for many fixes except replacement of the battery!

revher -

you have to remove the battery for digitizer replacement, however i would suggest removing it at the very last stage, i.e. step 24. cause it is easier to remove without the logic board being there

Winnie Lee -

Adhesive was holding battery VERY firmly, so during this step I used a hair blow dryer on low setting to carefully heat up the device. Then used the plastic tool to gently but firmly pry up one place on each edge. At first it felt like barely anything was happening, but within a few tries the adhesive gave away easily and the battery came right out.

misc - Réponse

The new battery from iFixit already had the cable properly folded, but before inserting the battery I used the plastic tool to press the fold closer to the battery body.

misc - Réponse

Before inserting the battery I put the contact clip into position. It has a hooked shape on one side which fits between the socket and the folded battery cable. If you try to position it AFTER the battery is installed the whole process is much more difficult. I used a tweezers to hold it in place while inserting the battery.

misc - Réponse

When inserting the battery I started by guiding the folded cable into position against the side of the contact clip, then proceeded to lay the battery in position. This made it very easy to have all parts in their original positions -- no need to fiddle with the battery cable or contact clip afterwards.

misc - Réponse

When pressing the battery connector into the socket, the first time I pressed from bottom to top. That didn't work because there is a little tab at the top of the connector which must fit into a tiny notch or else the connector won't lay flat properly. Pressing the connector from top to bottom worked easily.

misc - Réponse

Needle-nosed tweezers were very helpful when lining up the screws. After everything was reassembled I tried powering up the device, but the battery had insufficient charge. I plugged it in and immediately the screen displayed a battery with a thin red line (illustrating no charge). After 25 minutes the device sprang to life and indicated a 10% charge. At 70 minutes the battery indicated 30% charge, and at that rate should be fully charged in under 4 hours. It's fixed!!

super easy, battery had plenty of glue for what ever reason, I put the screw in 1st then set the battery and was easy to set the new battery.

Greg Wischmeyer - Réponse

ok new problem, drained battery as instructed, pugged it in and nothing 3 different cords and also my car charger were tried, nothing worked removed battery and checked contacts a few times still nothing, any ideas? thanks

Greg Wischmeyer - Réponse

Strictly speaking re-assembly is NOT the exact reverse of dismantling. In particular do not put the battery in and then try to plug in the connector, Rather, start by plugging in the connector (having straightened the ribbon-wire attaching it to the battery) and only then re=position the battery on its (gluey) base. Also I used a wooden cocktail stick to position the antenna connector correctly (pushing the stick through the hole in the antenna piece and into the threaded base where the screw will eventually go) and then I held it all in place (temporarily) with a tiny blob of Bluetac until I managed to successfully withdraw the cocktail stick and fit the proper screw.

I just used this guide and it was spot on. When putting the new dock connector in I was having trouble replacing the home button ribbon cable. I ended up removing the dock connector screws and pulling the assembly back out. I then slid the ribbon cable into it's slot, locked it in place, and then put the assembly back into the phone. It was much easier replacing the ribbon cable this way. Hope this helps someone.

I found a cool iPhone 4 universal dock adapter that may help protect the connector from being damaged in the first place. It is called the LCYO Adapter (http://www.synthecept.com) and lets you dock the phone without removing the case. Just a thought, like I said it might help avoid a damaged connector!

I successfully did this, however now my mic is not working unless I am on speaker or using my headphones... anyone else have this problem?

thanks,

I had two different little pieces of plastic on my replacement on the mic that I needed to peel off. You may have left some on. Not the easiest to check, but a possibility.

I had the same problem - nonfunctioning lower mic upon reassembly after replacing dock connector. Took it apart again, removed and reinstalled the dock connector paying special attention to the mic. Still no luck upon reassembly the second time. Any ideas? Bad/damaged mic?

Removing the logic board seems to be unnecessary. I was able to replace the dock connector by simply removing the speakers and battery.

Also, it'd be nice if the dock connector came with a new moisture sensor.

Definitely agree on the moisture sensor. I had to replace mine because it got real wet a few months ago. I was able to keep it working for a while, but then the mic eventually died.

The logic board removal was questionable for me. I felt like I didn't have to, but it made it much easier to properly reinstall the speaker enclosure.

I had a visibly crossed pin inside the doc connector. The phone would connect via USB, but no power to the battery. After replacing the connector I only get the USB connection graphic in the upper right corner of the phone instead of the lightening bolt. Could some kind of short happen to the electronics/battery because of the crossed pin? Could this be fixed?

I am going to try a different battery once I fix a stripped screw preventing the removal of the battery... doh.

Success!!!!!!!!!! After drilling out the battery holding screw with a 1/16 reverse drill bit and replacing the battery the phone now works.

I succeeded replacing the dock connector on my iPhone 4. Everything works 100%. Accomplished the repair by removing the battery and speaker housing. Removing the processor was not necessary in my case.

This guide was very useful, i successfully installed the main mic on my iPhone 4, which for some reason just stopped working...now it works!! thanx ifixit.

Ive been taking apart my phone on and off to attempt to fix a non working mic after this guide. Long story short, I purchased another dock connector but from amazon and it worked. Might of been a faulty piece, who knows. But I learned from all of this is carefull stripping the screws and catagorization helps a bunch when taking apart.

I also completing this repair without taking off the logic board. Word of warning however, the speakers are a PAIN to put back in without removing the logic board.

I was able to replace the charging dock fairly easily BUT I skipped some steps that seemed unnecessary: (1) I did NOT remove the battery. I simply disconnected the battery cable (performing steps 4 and 5). And, (2) I did NOT remove the logic board. I simply removed the dock ribbon cable from the logic board (performing steps 8, 9, and 10).

In summary, I skipped steps 6,7,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19. I performed the rest of the steps as outline in the guide. Note that I was very careful and taking care to WORK AROUND the battery and logic board with very little difficulty. The phone works perfectly.

can you use one screwdriver for all the screws? or do you HAVE to use a variety of small screwdrivers?

Mario - Réponse

I used a single Phillips screwdriver for all of the Phillips head screws, and a single flathead screwdriver for the flat head screw.

Just got it, first try! Agree with other posters. Step 12-18 seem unnecessary. The home button connector is especially tricky. Think threading a needle then trapping it with a clip. Definitely have patience and tweezers when doing this. Good luck!

Thanks so much for the excellent and clear instructions! I took my phone to the Apple store Genius Bar where they couldn't fix as they didn't have the part to replace it and only offered a brand new phone at a cost.. how ridiculous considering they're supposed to be the Apple repair technicians. After wasting my time there I decided to have a go at it myself since the phone was out of warranty anyway, so I spent $13 on eBay for the part and fixed it myself with no hassles. Thanks a bunch!

The steps and 12-19 are not necessary for replacing the dock connector on an iPhone 4! I edited that as a sidenote in the guide but someone took it away.

mrelwood - Réponse

why on earth does the description tell you to remove the main board? not necessary! (and it's not mentioned in the video...

Hello everyone I have a question in regards to this I replaced this part on my iPhone 4 and it caused my touch to stop working can anyone help me plz. I need my phone asap since this is my work phone. I already tried doing the hard reset by pressing the home and sleep button I already tried taking it apart and redoing the whole process and no luck. Any info will be greatlly appreciated thanks.

It might useful to use a white sheet of paper and to circle each screw and its dimension and an indication of the corresponding Ifixit guide step #. It is then much easier to rebuild.

Got my phone back to normal. Had to replace my dock connector due to some audio problems where it seemed to be locked in "dock-mode" due to a short-circuit causing my phone not to produce audio for music and other media from the internet.

Victor Emmanuel Erames - Réponse

outstanding in every regard - ordering, delivery, packaging, tools supplied, part, instructions. never opened an iPhone before, 20 minutes start to finish.

What an adventure! Stripped a screw, another went flying somewhere, had a random part drop out and I couldn't remember how to put back the metal clip. My metal clip is not in the video because my phone is Verizon. Used a carbon precision screwdriver instead of the screwdriver from the kit to get out the stripped screw, my husband miraculously found the missing screw, and, as I was reassembling, I saw where the part that dropped out would be helpful, and it snapped into place, it turned out the metal clip could go in only one way, and I was still able to use the stripped screw. At first my iphone wouldn't charge at all, the home button wouldn't work, and the music wouldn't play, and it was overheating while charging, but I found the solutions to all of these issues on the forum; 1) make sure the connector cable is snapped in, 2) bend the little gold contacts for the home button downwards, 3) restart the phone, and 4) stop running so many apps all at once. Now everything is working and charging perfectly!

I was able to exchange the doc connector. However, the problem is not fixed: No USB-Connection possible, doesn't show charging symbol when charging, chjarges really slow. Than I assumed the doc connector was broken, but looks like I asumed wrong. Has anybodey any clue what I need to repair? Thanks alot

Jens - Réponse

I was sent the wrong connector. Everything is the same except the long flat part is way shorter than the original. Check your parts before taking your phone apart.
