An adventure in small things. (iPhone 5 Rear Case Replacement)
2 - 3 heures
The old rear case of an iPhone 5 was bent in the top corner from being dropped, allowing dust inside where the screen was not properly held. The camera was all dusty as a result.
The repair went well. I meant to take pictures but, as so often happens when I repair things, I got too involved in it and forgot.
It took a long time to do because it requires a lot of attention and care.
Next time I would buy a lighted magnifying glass to use.
The new case fit great, all screw holes where they should be and in the end it worked fine.
The spudgers I have were a necessary thing, along with a pair of needle pointed tweezers. A clear work space and a magnetic mat are highly recommended.
Patience and attention to detail are crucial.
