Introduction

Use this guide to replace a worn-out or dead battery in your iPhone 14.

iPhone batteries are rated to hold 80% of their capacity for up to 500 charge cycles, which lasts roughly 18-24 months for most users. After that, your iPhone may need to be charged far more frequently, and iOS may warn you that performance is affected (in other words, your phone will run slower).

This guide was created using the A2882 (international) model. If you're fixing a different iPhone 14 model, there may be some visual discrepancies, but the procedure should be the same.

For your safety, discharge the battery below 25% before disassembling your device. This reduces the risk of fire if the battery is accidentally damaged during the repair. If your battery is swollen, take appropriate precautions.

Note: After the repair, your iPhone may display a warning about the “genuineness” of the battery, even when using original Apple parts. If your iPhone functions normally, you can safely ignore the warning.

You’ll need replacement adhesive to reattach the battery and the screen when reassembling the device. Your device will function normally, but will most likely lose its IP (Ingress Protection) rating.

  1. iPhone 14 Battery Replacement, Remove the pentalobe screws: étape 1, image 1 de 2 iPhone 14 Battery Replacement, Remove the pentalobe screws: étape 1, image 2 de 2
    • Power off your iPhone before beginning disassembly.

    • Remove the two 6.8 mm-long pentalobe P2 screws at the bottom edge of the iPhone.

  2. iPhone 14 Battery Replacement, Heat the lower edge of the iPhone: étape 2, image 1 de 1
    • Heating the lower edge of the iPhone helps soften the adhesive securing the rear glass, making it easier to open.

    • Apply a heated iOpener to the bottom edge of the rear glass to loosen the adhesive underneath. Apply the iOpener for at least 2 minutes.

    • A hair dryer, heat gun, or hot plate may also be used, but be careful not to overheat the device. The edge should feel slightly too hot to the touch.

  3. iPhone 14 Battery Replacement, Insert an opening pick: étape 3, image 1 de 3 iPhone 14 Battery Replacement, Insert an opening pick: étape 3, image 2 de 3 iPhone 14 Battery Replacement, Insert an opening pick: étape 3, image 3 de 3
    • Apply a suction handle to the bottom edge of the rear glass, while avoiding the very edge of the glass.

    • Pull up on the suction cup with firm, constant pressure to create a slight gap between the rear glass and the case.

    • Insert an opening pick into the gap.

    • The adhesive holding the rear glass in place is very strong; creating this initial gap takes a significant amount of force. If you're having a hard time opening a gap, apply more heat, and gently rock the rear glass up and down to weaken the adhesive until you create enough of a gap to insert your opening pick.

  4. iPhone 14 Battery Replacement, Heat and separate the rear glass adhesive: étape 4, image 1 de 1
    • Apply a heated iOpener to the left edge of the rear glass to loosen the adhesive underneath. Apply the iOpener for at least 2 minutes.

  5. iPhone 14 Battery Replacement, Slice the left edge adhesive: étape 5, image 1 de 3 iPhone 14 Battery Replacement, Slice the left edge adhesive: étape 5, image 2 de 3 iPhone 14 Battery Replacement, Slice the left edge adhesive: étape 5, image 3 de 3
    • Slide the opening pick around the lower left corner and up the left edge of the iPhone, slicing through the adhesive holding the rear glass in place.

    • Don't insert the pick more than 3 mm inside your phone, or you may damage components.

  6. iPhone 14 Battery Replacement, Heat and separate the rear glass adhesive: étape 6, image 1 de 1
    • Apply a heated iOpener to the right edge of the rear glass to loosen the adhesive underneath. Apply the iOpener for at least 2 minutes.

  7. iPhone 14 Battery Replacement, Slice the right edge adhesive: étape 7, image 1 de 3 iPhone 14 Battery Replacement, Slice the right edge adhesive: étape 7, image 2 de 3 iPhone 14 Battery Replacement, Slice the right edge adhesive: étape 7, image 3 de 3
    • Re-insert your pick at the bottom edge of the iPhone, and slide it up the right side to continue separating the adhesive.

    • Don't insert your opening pick more than 3 mm into the iPhone to prevent damaging the charging coil cable.

  8. iPhone 14 Battery Replacement, Heat the top edge of the iPhone: étape 8, image 1 de 1
    • Apply a heated iOpener to the top edge of the rear glass to loosen the adhesive underneath. Apply the iOpener for at least 2 minutes.

    • Insert your pick underneath the top right edge of the phone. Slide it around the top-right corner and half way across the top edge.

  10. iPhone 14 Battery Replacement: étape 10, image 1 de 3 iPhone 14 Battery Replacement: étape 10, image 2 de 3 iPhone 14 Battery Replacement: étape 10, image 3 de 3
    • Insert your pick underneath the top-left edge of the phone. Slide it around the top-left corner and half way across the top edge.

    • Don't insert the pick more than 3 mm or you may damage or smear the camera array.

    • Don't try to fully separate the rear glass yet, as a fragile ribbon cable still connects it to the iPhone's logic board.

  11. iPhone 14 Battery Replacement, Open the iPhone: étape 11, image 1 de 3 iPhone 14 Battery Replacement, Open the iPhone: étape 11, image 2 de 3 iPhone 14 Battery Replacement, Open the iPhone: étape 11, image 3 de 3
    • Remove your suction handle from the rear glass.

    • Slowly open your iPhone by swinging the rear glass up from the left side, like the back cover of a book.

    • Be careful not to strain the short charging coil flex cable.

    • Lean the rear glass against something to keep it propped up while you're working on the phone.

    • If you don't have anything at hand to lean the rear glass against, your suction handle can do the trick.

    • During reassembly, lay the rear glass in position, align the clips along the top edge, and carefully press the top edge into place before snapping the rest down. If it doesn't click easily into place, check the condition of the clips around the perimeter of the rear glass and make sure they aren't bent.

    • Use a Y000 screwdriver to remove the two 1.3 mm-long screws securing the battery connector cover.

    • Throughout this repair, keep track of each screw and make sure it goes back exactly where it came from to avoid damaging your iPhone.

    • During reassembly, this is a good point to power on your iPhone and test all functions before you seal the display in place. Be sure to power your iPhone back down completely before you continue working.

    • Grasp the battery connector cover with a pair of tweezers and slide it upwards (towards the A15 print) to unlatch the top hook.

    • Remove the battery connector cover.

  13. iPhone 14 Battery Replacement, Disconnect the battery: étape 14, image 1 de 2 iPhone 14 Battery Replacement, Disconnect the battery: étape 14, image 2 de 2
    • Use the pointed end of a spudger to disconnect the battery cable by prying the connector straight up from its socket.

    • Try not to damage the black silicone seal surrounding this and other board connections. These seals provide extra protection against water and dust intrusion.

    • Bend the connector slightly away from the logic board to prevent it from accidentally making contact with the socket and providing power to the phone during your repair.

  16. iPhone 14 Battery Replacement, Disconnect the charging coil: étape 17, image 1 de 2 iPhone 14 Battery Replacement, Disconnect the charging coil: étape 17, image 2 de 2
    • Use the pointed end of a spudger to disconnect the charging coil cable by prying the connector straight up from its socket.

  17. iPhone 14 Battery Replacement, Remove the rear glass assembly: étape 18, image 1 de 2 iPhone 14 Battery Replacement, Remove the rear glass assembly: étape 18, image 2 de 2
    • Remove the rear glass assembly.

    • Apply new adhesive where it's necessary after cleaning the relevant areas with isopropyl alcohol (>90%).

    • During reassembly, pause here if you wish to replace the rear glass adhesives.

  18. iPhone 14 Battery Replacement, Locate the adhesive pull-tabs: étape 19, image 1 de 1
    • Two stretch adhesive strips secure the battery to the case. They're both accessed from the top edge of the battery.

    • Each adhesive strip has a black pull-tab at the end, which is lightly adhered to the edge of the battery.

    • In the following steps, you'll pull each tab to slowly stretch out the adhesive underneath the battery. These "command-strip" style adhesives lose their stick when stretched, so you can remove the battery with ease.

    • If the strips break, don't panic! They don't always work as intended. Keep reading for tips on removing broken strips.

    • Caution: Don't jab the battery with any sharp tools. A punctured battery may leak dangerous chemicals or catch fire.

    • Use a pair of blunt-nosed tweezers to peel up the two battery adhesive pull-tabs along the top edge of the battery.

  20. iPhone 14 Battery Replacement: étape 21, image 1 de 3 iPhone 14 Battery Replacement: étape 21, image 2 de 3 iPhone 14 Battery Replacement: étape 21, image 3 de 3
    • Grab the first pull-tab with your fingers or wrap it around a spudger and slowly pull it away from the battery, toward the top of the iPhone.

    • Pull out hard enough to maintain tension on the strip, but don't force it. Give it plenty of time to stretch and un-stick from under the battery.

    • Don't press down on the battery but hold the iPhone firmly by its sides.

    • Keep the strip flat and unwrinkled. Try to pull evenly on the whole strip, rather than pulling mainly in the middle or on one side.

    • If the adhesive strip breaks off, try to retrieve it using your fingers or blunt tweezers, and continue pulling—but do not pry under the battery.

    • If any of the adhesive strips break off underneath the battery and can't be retrieved, try to remove the other strip, and then proceed as instructed below.

  21. iPhone 14 Battery Replacement: étape 22, image 1 de 3 iPhone 14 Battery Replacement: étape 22, image 2 de 3 iPhone 14 Battery Replacement: étape 22, image 3 de 3
    • Grab the second pull-tab with your fingers or the center of a spudger and pull it away from the battery, toward the top of the iPhone.

    • Follow the same procedure as with the previous strip: don't press down on the battery, keep the strip flat and unwrinkled, and pull at a low angle.

    • If the adhesive strip breaks off, try to retrieve it using your fingers or blunt tweezers, and continue pulling—but do not pry under the battery.

    • If the adhesive breaks off underneath the battery and can't be retrieved, continue with the next step.

    • If you're still having trouble removing the battery, apply a few drops of high concentration (90% or higher) isopropyl alcohol under the edge of the battery in the area of the broken adhesive strip(s).

    • Wait about one minute for the alcohol solution to weaken the adhesive.

    • Use an opening pick or the flat end of a spudger to gently lift the battery.

    • Don't try to forcefully lever the battery out. If needed, apply a few more drops of alcohol to further weaken the adhesive. Never deform or puncture the battery with your pry tool.

  23. iPhone 14 Battery Replacement, Remove the battery: étape 24, image 1 de 2 iPhone 14 Battery Replacement, Remove the battery: étape 24, image 2 de 2
    • Remove the battery.

    • Do not reinstall a damaged or deformed battery, as doing so is a potential safety hazard.

    • If there's any alcohol solution remaining in the phone, carefully wipe it off before installing your new battery.

    • If your new battery didn't come with adhesive preinstalled, refer to this guide for help replacing the adhesive strips.

    • Perform a force restart after reassembly. This can prevent several issues and simplify troubleshooting.
