Introduction

Utilisez ce tutoriel pour redonner vie à votre iPhone 7 grâce à une nouvelle batterie. Si votre batterie est gonflée, prenez les précautions appropriées.

Ce tutoriel vous montrera comment retirer l'écran complet afin d'éviter d'endommager les nappes d'écran. Si vous pensez arriver à retirer la batterie sans endommager les nappes, vos pouvez sauter ces étapes, bien que ça ne soit pas conseillé.

Pour des performances optimales, calibrez votre batterie fraîchement installée : chargez-la jusqu'à 100 % et laissez-la se charger pendant au moins deux heures de plus. Puis utilisez le iPhone jusqu'à ce qu'il s'éteigne à cause de la batterie faible. Rechargez-le ensuite sans interruption jusqu'à 100 %.

    I purchased the repair tools with the replacement battery from iFixit. The tools include a screw driver and three heads none were labeled 3.4 mm. I think the one that fit the pentalobe screws was labeled Y000. The guide should identify the screw driver head supplied by the kit not 3.4mm.

    Lee - Réponse

    Absolutely. Just don’t overdo it—the adhesive usually softens up pretty easily. If you are experienced with a heat gun, you’ll have no problem. (If you are inexperienced, it’s easy to cook the display or cause other damage.)

    Opening the iPhone's display will compromise its waterproof seals. Have replacement seals ready before you proceed past this step, or take care to avoid liquid exposure if you reassemble your iPhone without replacing the seals.

    This was SO hard for me to do with the spudger. I couldn’t get a gap to insert it because my phone was so cracked (even though I used tape on the front) to get a solid seal with the suction cup. I ended up taking a VERY thin knife and inserting it straight down to make the initial break that allowed me to insert the spudger.

    jessica harlow - Réponse

    I’ve given up using a plastic spudger to try to open any of these phones. I use a metal one with a flat base and a very sharp end…close to a razor. As long as I’m careful, it won’t slip and scratch the base. It’s much easier than using these plastic spudgers.

    mcr4u2 -

    I confirm that the plastic spudger it’s not the best tool for this operation. I suggest to use a larger metal tool like a “Jimmy” or “iSesamo open tool” (I used the first one)

    Chris Gallego - Réponse

    Apply hair dryer for at least 1 minute. I inserted the tip end of a thin mini screwdriver and with some force, pryed it open and inserted my plastic spudger to continue the separation process. It worked, just be patient.

    Please wear protective glasses! My iPhone glass was severely cracked, when separating the glass a corner area of broken glass exploded in my face. Apply transparent tape over the broken glass to contain the shards.

    amberron - Réponse

    I second Jessica’s January 8 comment.  I just finished a battery replacement on my iPhone 7 and this step was the most nerve-wracking part.  I ended up using a sharper (but not razor-sharp) metal object to get this done with confidence (tried the spudger and guitar pick but not thin enough).  The tool I used was the exact duplicate of what iFixIt calls “iSesamo Opening Tool” in their tool selection.  I did the heat up with a hair dryer (after attempts with an iOpener hot pad) and the secret (as Jessica also noted)  was to not use the angle of attack shown in the pictures, but to push it in more vertically along the bottom edge while pulling up on the suction cup.  From there you can easily lever the tool to the lower angle-of-attack (as shown in the picture).  I actually used the metal tool for most of the perimeter as well, just don’t go deep (you don’t need to).  Notes: my display was intact, and I was able to pull up fairly hard with a glass screen protector still on it.

    Ted - Réponse

    This is frustrating. I heated the lower edge with a hair dryer for 1 min on high about 3-4 times. In between each heat cycle, I rocked the suction cup back and forth. I was eventually able to create significant space for the provided tool. This takes a lot of patience. Once the space was created, it was very easy to remove the screen.

    Dan - Réponse

    use a fingernail, then the blue tool, then the spudger

    Therese Peffer - Réponse

    The iOpener worked just fine for me. Had to keep it on for a few minutes. I also was able to get the suction cup seal right close to the edge, over top of the home button for added leverage. Used the blue tool and transitioned to the spudger. Slow, steady pressure…and patience. ;)

    johnhall918 - Réponse

    Unable to open an iPhone 7 display assembly. Used gell pack at 150 degrees F. The phone wouldn’t budge when I used the iFixit suction cut. Part of the problem is that the cup doesn’t adhere for long before it looses suction. I suspect it would work better on unbroken glass, but that doesn’t help me now. After spending a lot of time at this, I changed heating methods to a hot air heater. I raised the temp of the bottom end of the phone to, ultimately, 175 degrees, and used a variety of tools to try to pry the glass apart enough to get a spudger (or anything) in, but it didn’t even lift enough for a double-edged razor blade to get in. I’ve been trying this for hours now, and about to give up and throw a lot more money at this to have a service perform the work. I figured that 175 was as high as I should need to go to soften the adhesive without damaging the electronics. Should I have gone higher? I see no mention of measured temps in any instructions or comments.

    ted - Réponse

    Have you tried applying tape to the broken screen? This will help a lot with keeping the suction cup on it.

    Christian Groothuis -

    It doesn’t need to get very hot; pulling up on the display is mainly what does the trick. Make sure the two pentalobe screws have been removed and then try the tricks in this step. If all else fails, superglue the suction cup to your display and let it cure, and then pull. Keep in mind you only need a tiny gap to insert a plastic pick and start cutting the adhesive. Good luck!

    Jeff Suovanen -

    Just a question. After this operation the impermeability function was compromitted?

    bentek86 - Réponse

    The trick I found, was to add packing tape right across the bottom over the home button then use hairdryer on the end, then suction cup on the very bottom and it lifted enough to get a gap. No one mentioned how it would be impossible to handle the phone after the hairdryer ;)

    Andrew Lansdowne - Réponse

    Didn’t have an iOpener and 60 seconds on a hairdryer wasn’t doing it for me. Still wouldn’t budge. I had to take a very sharp razor along the seam at the bottom between the speakers. It took about 20 passes for it to separate enough to get the spudger in. Make sure you keep the razor at a 90-45˚ angle and that it goes no more than 1-2mm into the phone. The bottom of the phone is metal, but the casing for the screen is plastic. So if you cut lower than a 45˚ (flat with the phone) you risk cutting into the casing. Apply light pressure when making the passes. I would just do the razor on the flat part on the bottom.

    minimalist - Réponse

    I used a hair drier while lifting up at the same time until I could get the too inside. The seal is pretty finicky. Just take your time and you should be fine. Work the hair drier and the tool all the way around before lifting the screen up and off. There will likely be sealant stuck between the screen and phone. You can just break it with the tool.

    Ray Bieze - Réponse

    This step was impossible for me despite using a blow dryer and having no cracks on the screen. I finally took it to a local repair place and had them do battery replacements for two iPhone 7’s. The girl let me watch her do it. She used a razor blade (just until she had a small opening that she could hold open with her fingernail) and confirmed that she too would have difficulty opening it with a plastic tool and suction cup. The plastic tool was great for prying the rest of it open once a crack was there, but she said she would never try to use that as the tool to initially open it. The tools provided for initially prying open the screen are inadequate.

    Chad Twedt - Réponse

    Hopeless - no chance to get the screen off without any damage. No matter what tools, heat etc.

    Anatole Beams - Réponse

    I second what others have said, definitely use a razor blade to break the seal! Heat helps some, but too much direct heat is bad for the screen. Would have been impossible if I hadn’t read the comments, thanks everybody!

    Kit - Réponse

    Use extreme caution on this step. I was just replacing my battery and now i’m buying a new screen. The screen was very stuck, I pulled to hard and it popped off suddenly, completely destroying the screen.

    moose - Réponse

    When the right heat is reached, the easiest way is to use a metal iFlex to create the initial gap, then insert the Jimmy or iSesamo next to it so the gap gets bigger, at this point you can get in with the flat edge of a plastic spudger and slowly slide it in the borders to cut the adhesive. You will still need to force a bit the upper end to separate the screen by pulling it down while keeping up the screen, and twist to the right. I hope this is clear enough. Never apply too much strength too quickly anyway.

    Stefano Restuccia - Réponse

    I used the short blade of my swiss knife to make an initial opening. Using the sharp edge, inserting about 1 mm straight down and twisting down into a 45° angle. Then I was able to insert the spudger.

    John van de Loo - Réponse

    This is a difficult step. Fortunately, I had another suction cup from an earlier repair available, so I applied one to each side of the phone. After warming with a hair dryer, I was able to pull the two suction cups far enough away that another person could easily insert the spudger.

    The third hand was essential.

    Mark - Réponse

    I found this tactic to be the best solution for us. I used two suction cups, one on each side of the phone, and another set of hands to get a pry tool under the display. We still had to take our time prior while heating the adhesive, but were able to pry the display fairly easily using the two suction cup method.

    Lucas -

    It was a really excruciating process of heating, lifting with the suction cup, trying to slide in the spudger/pick, and repeating the process for 20 times or so. But in the end, my patience paid off!

    The photos are a con. You cannot get a spudger in unless you can lift the screen. You cannot lift the screen because of the adhesive. Using a anything metal will damage the paintwork or the glass edge.

    Anatole Beams - Réponse

    I agree, these guides are half imaginary idealism it seems. A thin metal edge pushed vertically down just a fraction of a mm will cause the adhesive to weaken better than any amount of heat, but affects the final appearance sadly.

    Be VERY careful on this next step going up the right side of the phone. There is a ribbon cable 1/3 of the way up from the bottom that is very close to the edge. Do NOT use the blue triangle!!!! Just lightly rotate the spudger to get separation on the edge.

    It’s the screwdriver bit that is the problem. I had the same issue with 2 Y000 bits not grabbing the screw properly. I fixed it by using a small 3 sided file to slightly grind the groves in the Y000 bit just a bit deeper. Then the bit worked like a charm on these screws.

    Use Y000 on all 4. U have to be very sensitive on the 1.2mm screws. Put the bit in the screw, put the left pointing finger on top of the screwdriver and turn the driver carefully to the right until you feel a “bump”, thats the trick :-), then you are able to screw the screw out.

    For me the key here was a LOT of downward pressure to ensure the Y000 bit caught in the screw. Not sure i can describe how much exactly, but is was significant. Otherwise the bit would not catch.

Not ideal, but works. I've tried applying a lot of pressure, using the tighten/ loosen method, but the heads have just got mashed… no wonder Samsung are now No1, sigh…

    You need to be careful when just rotating the cover as you can accidentally slice through the two black antennas! You only need to nip them…As you can tell I have done this in the past :/

    Kyle Webb -

    The first, longer screw came out fine, but the other three wouldn’t budge, regardless of more/less pressure or a slight angle or anything. I finally filed down the tip of the Y000 bit ever so slightly, and then it worked. Hope this helps someone.

    Harmony Vine - Réponse

    Filing down the bit worked for me. The tip about putting an index finger on the end of the screwdriver handles and then turning gently until it clicks into place was very helpful! Using these 2 tips I didn't need much downward pressure. Screws are out in a few turns.

    Chris Bennett - Réponse

    If you can’t get the bit to grip the screw properly, you can use a little bit of the water-proof sealing between the bit and the screw. That worked for me. Hope this helps anyone.

    I used a bunch of medicine cups to track my screws. You need like 12 if you want them all in cups. I ran out. There are so many different sizes that literally vary by 1mm. The tolerances on these things are tight.

    qwerty77x - Réponse

    Was able to get the outer bracket screws out using fine needle nose pliers 90 degrees straight down for the outer ones by pressing down a little and using medium gripping force. Had to take these out first before i could use tweezers on the middle one, for which I had to use tweezers to hold the screw, then rotating the bracket (not the screw) counter clockwise a few mm many times over to slowly unscrew it 1/32th of a turn at a time, repeat. (this loosened middle screw). Think ‘rotating bracket 3minutes/degrees counterclockwise at a time while holding screw in place.) You are gonna need really small/fine pliers and tweezers for this because the heads are countersunk into the bracket.

    Galen Wollenberg - Réponse

    The top screw in the step was much longer than 1.2mm. It has the same head as the 1.2mm, but different than the 2.4mm. It’s good to keep track of where they came from.

    Julian Eltrich - Réponse

    Reconnecting the battery poorly can cause the iPhone to appear to be properly powered and functional, but then suffer a reboot loop.

    I had difficulty after a screen replacement, and the Console app on my Mac showed that the ‘thermalmonitord’ process was throwing lots of errors from not getting any sensor readings from the battery. It would never charge past 1% and just kept rebooting.

    The contacts on this conector looked fine so even though I had reseated this connector several times already, I reconnected it very firmly using my thumb and a spudger to really press all the corners and middle and really gave it a good massage and then finally it showed the normal dead battery screen and started properly charging and eventually booted back up to normal functionality.

    It seems the battery has to be able to transmit data to the phone to say it’s not overheating or iOS will not allow any current into the battery to recharge it, and the kernel will panic from the null readings and just reboot over and over again.

    To be honest you don’t really need to disconnect the display cables in step 15 or 16 to get the battery out. Just keep the suction cup on the screen to keep it propped up and to give the cables some slack. The only reason to take these cables off is that it’s a pain to apply the replacement display adhesive with those cables in the way. If you’re not re-waterproofing your phone just leave these attached.

    Has anyone had trouble getting these two screws off? I’ve been working on these for about 10 minutes and the LEFT screw wont spin. It seems like the little PH000 screwdriver bit won’t even grip it. (The one of the right comes off, no problem)

    It looks like I’ll have to pick this project up again with a screwdriver that will actually take off this piece.

    Makana Sylva - Réponse

    If you’re having trouble removing these screws;

    the screw on the right goes into a standoff screw that is screwed into the frame.The left one goes into the logicboard.

    If your phone is used most likely it has been repaired in the past and the person that repaired it put the screws in way too tight.

    If your phone is brand new And you know 100% it is then the problem is your screwdriver.Stop before you strip it completely and buy a better screwdriver (EBAY).

    If you already stripped the screw head take the phone to a shop before you break it.

    there are ways to get them out but truthfully it’s extremely dangerous and sometimes your better off quitting while you are ahead.

    Using iFixit’s driver kit, I prefer a PH00 for this, which is larger than the PH000. If you think the PH000 is too big, something is wrong.

    Jeff Suovanen -

    I think part of the issue with the iFixit PH000 is that it is slightly too pointy. The PH00 fits better because the splines engage the slots of the screw before the point bottoms out. The PH000 tip bottoms out in the screw’s center point and the splines don’t engage as well. I have other PH000 tips that are more blunt nose and they work better than the iFixit bit.

    @victorbui714 Correct, this is also the connector for the earpiece speaker. Check the flex cable carefully and make sure it wasn’t pinched or torn. Make sure the connector socket is clean (give it a blast with some compressed air if needed) and try reseating it. If that doesn’t help, you may want to remove the earpiece speaker and inspect the four springs on the back, and check that they’re intact and making good contact with the four circular pads on the flex cable. Give the pads a wipe with some IPA and try not to leave any skin oils on them. If none of that works, try replacing the entire flex cable/sensor assembly. Good luck!

Having bought the ifixit battery and have gotten as far as this step, I could see that all three of the 1.6mm screws were just floating around in the compartment and the taptic engine was just being held on via it’s ribbon lead.

    I put the Taptic Engine back in the case first. The battery seems to rest right against it, so it becomes a physical reference point.

yes , unless it is sealed back with new waterproof tape, which almost no one has yet

No you can buy the replacement. See the above guide for a link on how to do that and iFixIt sells them. Recommend buying more than one because installation is tricky - must get it aligned perfectly though the spluger and pointy tweezers can help reposition minor slipups.

Yep, we have a guide for replacing the seal (display adhesive) now. I don't know how waterproof the seal will be afterward, but I think it's worth doing regardless.

Most of the adhesives that are being sold are not rated to be waterproof, and are not the geniune OEM brand materials.

Probably too late, but there are many vendors that sell the waterproof seal for iPhone7. Use alchohol and tweezers to remove the old seal and glue, align the new seal and stick it. Compared to the battery change, it’s a breeze.

Now I got a huge problem concerning the HomeButton/ForceTouch-function.

It does not work anymore. I think it's a safety measure by Apple to prevent people from changing their batteries.

ANY HELP, please? :(

87schiller - Réponse

Those functions aren't related to the battery. Double-check your work, reseat the cable connectors, and inspect the cables and home button hardware carefully for damage.

Jeff Suovanen -

I know this is a month late, but hopefully this helps someone. On the 7, 3D Touch and the home button are routed through the same flex cable that comes out from underneath the metal backing of the display and plugs into the board.

This flex cable is very easy to pull and damage when taking the screen off for the first time. In most situations you won't see this damage because it will be underneath the metal backing of the display.

If this same thing happens to you, you'll unfortunately need a screen replacement to fix it.

My problem is with the 4 tri screws holding the 1st bracket down. They just spin, all 4 of them. The screw heads aren't stripped, as they all spin, they just don't back out. I've applied backpressure in hopes that would help lift the screws, but no luck.

Is Iphone 7 battery connector same as battery connector of Iphone 6S or other models?

Tumen - Réponse

No. Different connectors.

You dont have to remove the Taptic Engine but it gives you more room to work with the glue.

Hello there, I got a dead iPhone 7, so I tested the battery, and the only “weird” thing.. is that the battery is rated 3.8v… and on this one.. im having a reading of 4.1V…. maybe this overpowered issue is preventing the iPhone to turn on???

jbermudez27 - Réponse

So, I changed the battery of my iPhone 7 with the kit provided by IFIXIT a couple of days ago, and cononutBattery is reporting that the battery is already at 95% (1862 out of 1960 mAh), with only 1 charge cycle. Is this normal?

Federico Baier - Réponse

Hi Federico

Did you try the following tip?

For optimal performance after completing the guide, calibrate your newly installed battery: Drain it below 10%, then charge it uninterrupted to 100%.

in this website can i have mobile and tab schematics ?

Ali Zain - Réponse

This is a truly fantastic account of how to do this. Well done.

I had to abandon when the kit I was supplied did not include a tri screwdriver but I watched the engineer finish my work and it was exactly as shown here.

In any such venture, when dealing with precision components. DON’T RUSH, if you have any issue with hands that tremor for whateverr reason when handinlng small items, DON’T TRY THIS, LEAVE IT TO SOMEONE WITH STEADY HANDS !!

Shaun O'Connor - Réponse

My iPhone 7 wasn't not charging. So, After searching on Google, I found this guide "iPhone 7 not charging". And, with this guide I get to know about that, my iPhone battery got damaged. And, My iPhone warranty also got expired. So, I have decided to replace the battery by myself. And, this guide really helped me to replace my iPhone battery. Just want to say thanks to you. :)

nagarakshya - Réponse

Can you pull the battery adhesive tabs without removing the Taptic Engine? Anyone tried that?

Balle - Réponse

@balleklorin You certainly can, but you’re much more likely to break the adhesive strips that way. You want to pull them at as low an angle as possible, and with the Taptic Engine installed you’ll have to pull them at nearly 90 degrees. My advice is not to take shortcuts, but it’s your phone and your rules! Good luck.

Jeff Suovanen -

Hi ! I want to do this repair but I read online that if I use a non-original battery Apple’s software will detect it and will slow down the phone (like it does for the damaged original battery).

Is it still true or is it fixed in the current IOS ?

Quentin barbry - Réponse

Not true at all. As long as you have a high-quality battery, the iPhone’s performance is just as good as with a brand-new battery from Apple. If you have any doubts, you can verify the performance by benchmarking it with the GeekBench app.

Jeff Suovanen -

Hi everyone, I’ve replaced my iPhone 7 Battery and for some reason i am still seeing the old battery readings (same percentage and same battery health percentage 80%) on battery settings. Will this fix after the battery gets calibrated?

Thanks.

Juan Fonseca - Réponse

my home button stopped working. Any ideas how to fix this ?

Dries Van de Velde - Réponse

I‘ve done it step by step, everything went well. everything works, except touchID wont work.

could anyone tell me what the reason could be?

thank you lads.

Excellent guide, but may I make a couple of suggestions:

1) in step 18 this guide should strongly recommend that anyone doing the waterproof sealant replacement MUST watch the linked “iPhone Display Adhesive Replacement” guide FIRST considering that it does require an additional tool (no, I did not have enough pennies on me to do the recommended heat treatment followed by weight-pressing the reassembled iPhone assisted by said pennies).

2) also in step 18, you could point out that the forward camera assembly at the top of the front plate of the iPhone 7 has a hooked ridge that must be fitted into the bottom plate for the re-assembly to work at all. Personally I had NOT noticed that, so when I tried to reassemble mine I hadn’t tried to make sure that the ridge was properly placed. Could you add a picture here of that ridge and perhaps recommend that everyone working on disassembly that they should see how it works so they can recall it upon re-assembly.

Arthur Maruyama - Réponse

I agree. Reassembly is NOT the reverse of the many steps! That ridge or plastic edge MUST be slid into first. Opening the iPhone doesn’t reveal that. Careful, because the waterproof glue can catch the battery cable too. Aligning the battery by connecting the battery cable/ribbon helps BUT be careful and remember to disconnect the battery BEFORE reconnecting the two data cables (Again, this would be obvious if the steps or reassembly pics were included. Number of steps = 60 more realistically because reassembly is just as important and risky!

lovemymac -

BTW: when I first completed my re-assembly, when I first looked at my screen there was a set of greyish bands that covered about 1/3rd of the screen. Not so dark that clearly blocked the use of those parts of the screen but rather noticable. I shrugged my shoulders, thinking that perhaps there was some internal damage that I couldn’t help having done.

But less than 24 hours after that, that banding has been considerably reduced (covering less than 10%) AND it is much less grey. It is such that I must bring up an app like Notes in order to have a mostly blank white screen in order to see what remains, so perhaps this was merely an artifact left by the ending heating I did to “cure” the waterproof adhesive, and over time it will disappear entirely.

Home button not working after battery replacement.

karllittau - Réponse

Ugh. Touch ID not working after replacing battery — I figure I damaged the cable attached to the screen. I hard rebooted (down volume + power) and it didn’t help. Sad. Everything else ok.

mason - Réponse

Thanks for the guide. Very helpful on two iPhones

For some reason i forgot to use the suction cup but was still able to open the phone without much difficulty (so don’t worry about needing iopeners etc. )

Of course one of my battery strips snapped, but with a bit of effort and pointed tweezers under the battery i managed to grab it after a few attempts and fully remove it.

Although you could do this without removing the screen, you will need to remove it to place a new sealant strip around the edge.

Stuart - Réponse

Just completed changing the battery on my Father-in-law's iPhone 7. He had purchased the phone used and I suspect the battery had been replaced previously as there was no adhesive seal holding the display to the case. In addition one of the screws holding the bracket was missing. Nonetheless the procedure went very well. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. The most difficult part of this project was removing the battery from the case as the adhesive broke almost immediately. Fortunately the tips that are in that step made removing the battery easy. Bottom line, read the instructions ahead of time, watch the video and TAKE YOUR TIME! Good luck!

Lon Adams - Réponse

I used this guide with the ifixit replacement kit and it went very well. I do wish though that the guide gave advice on how to install the new adhesive gasket when reassembling.

Thomas - Réponse

Hey Thomas! Glad to hear that everything went well. Sorry to leave you hanging on the adhesive install, we do have a guide but it’s a little hidden. Remplacement des bandes adhésives fixant l'écran d'un iPhone

I followed every step. Replaced the battery. Played backwards every step. Now I am stuck with the Apple Logo slowly flashing on & off. I think I just killed my iPhone7. My Mac does not ‘see’ my phone when I connect it to iTunes.

Jeffery Barbour - Réponse

This guide doesn’t really explain how to reapply the display assembly adhesive, which is necessary to restore the iPhone 7’s water resistance. As previously mentioned, check out this guide.

Anthony - Réponse

i am not being able to do it… I have heated up the phone, to smooth the glue… but the cover doesn’t me off

matilde_napoleao - Réponse

Good instructions. Two things that would be nice to add to reassembly would be how to apply the adhesive and seal.

Tom Fields - Réponse

My iphone fell in the toilet and was there maybe 5 seconds. I dried it and let it rest but then (I know) tried to to do things. The next day (I took it to a TekDry machine and they put it through for two half hour plus periods. After the first half hour, the start screen came back for a maybe a minute. (I almost paid.) Then nothing. I brought it home and plugged it in to charge it. After 5 hours (?) it began to flash- It was like a living creature trying to breathe- It would light up- then go dark- many times. I tried a hard reset and think I managed to turn it off. Now it is in a vertical position, off the charger. This is a newly refurbished phone. (I had it for a day)- I am wondering where I could take it to in Seattle for someone to open it up. It will turn on even now. Or should I give it a decent burial? I am in my 70s and techno-challenged. Any advice, expressions of gentle derogation or approval, are welcome.

Lyn Coffin - Réponse

Getting the adhesive to loosen was the hardest and most frustrating part of this with me trying it multiple times for a few days. Simply “warming up” the phone did not work, I had to make it really, really hot in order to lift the phone a fraction of a millimeter with the whole thing flying around the room and me hitting myself in the face with the suction cup multiple times. Using a thinner metal plunger did the trick, but scratched my case. Nevertheless, it was the only way to open up that beast. A third hand would have been be nice for that job x)

Wilk Polarny - Réponse

Me too. I stopped and bought the tool that has two suction cups and looks like pliers. It allowed me to gently squeeze, release, squeeze and eventually it began to separate. Also, that tool kept me from pulling to hard or opening too wide thus saving the ribbon connections. The iFixIt heat tool worked better than a hairdryer.

Completed. This is now the second 7 that I have successfully replaced the battery on.

Kevin McNamara - Réponse

I have to agree with some of the other comments - the re-assembly instructions might have helped!!! Instead of having to switch between guides to figure out how and when to apply the screen adhesive. I successfully dismantled the iPhone, replaced the battery, got through the majority of the re-assembly, realised the instructions hadn’t included the screen adhesive, searched for the instructions, then re-disconnect the screen AGAIN, apply the screen adhesive, re-assemble the iPhone completely this time, only to find I’d broken the display at some point!!!

Andy Pounder - Réponse

Perfect install. Now phone is dead.

eddyfreemail - Réponse

I missed the “forced restart” after reassembly. That created some angst for me wondering where the trusty white Apple logo was hiding. I reread the notes and found the forced restart. All is good. Super nice tutorial. Many thanks,

Travis Witherington - Réponse

I’ve made it, after all. How dare you not saying that one need new adhesive strips and sealing AT THE BEGINNING of this instruction or OFFER IT IN THE INTRODUCTION as all the other stuff, I’ve asked!!!

Axel Moering - Réponse

Great kit and tutorial, I had it done in one shot without buying any extra strips! Just go slow and you’ll get there eventually. Oh and, keep the hairdryer nearby, it will be your bff for this! Good luck and many thanks to the people in the comments as your warnings have been really helpful!!

Anthony Phuong - Réponse

Worked OK. Hard bits is screen removal - I used very narrow screwdriver. Advise using piece of A4 with step numbers to place various screws and parts on as you remove. Some very tiny screws in there.
