Introduction

Use this guide to replace a broken rear glass on your iPhone 14. The rear glass includes the charging coil and rear-facing microphone mounted on it.

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.

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

  1. iPhone 14 Rear Glass Replacement, Remove the pentalobe screws: étape 1, image 1 de 2 iPhone 14 Rear Glass 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 Rear Glass 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.

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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 Rear Glass 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 halfway across the top edge.

  10. iPhone 14 Rear Glass Replacement: étape 10, image 1 de 3 iPhone 14 Rear Glass Replacement: étape 10, image 2 de 3 iPhone 14 Rear Glass 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 halfway 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 Rear Glass Replacement, Open the iPhone: étape 11, image 1 de 3 iPhone 14 Rear Glass Replacement, Open the iPhone: étape 11, image 2 de 3 iPhone 14 Rear Glass 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 Rear Glass Replacement, Disconnect the battery: étape 14, image 1 de 2 iPhone 14 Rear Glass 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.

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

Conclusion

Compare your new replacement part to the original part—you may need to transfer remaining components or remove adhesive backings from the new part before installing.

To reassemble your device, follow the above steps in reverse order.

Take your e-waste to an R2 or e-Stewards certified recycler.
