    • Insert a SIM card eject tool or a paperclip into the small hole in the SIM card tray, located near the side button on the edge of the iPhone.

    • Press firmly to eject the tray.

  2. iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 2, image 1 de 2 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 2, image 2 de 2
    • Remove the SIM card tray from the iPhone.

    • The SIM card will fall out of the tray easily.

    • When reinserting the SIM card, ensure that it is in the proper orientation relative to the tray.

    • A thin rubber gasket around the SIM tray provides water and dust protection. If this gasket is damaged or missing, replace the gasket or the entire SIM tray to protect your iPhone's internal components.

  3. iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement, Pentalobe Screws: étape 3, image 1 de 1
    • Before you begin, discharge your iPhone battery below 25%. A charged lithium-ion battery can catch fire and/or explode if accidentally punctured.

    • Power off your iPhone before beginning disassembly.

    • Remove the two 6.9 mm-long pentalobe screws at the bottom edge of the iPhone.

    • If the screws are stripped or damaged, replace the screws.

    • 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.

  4. iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement, Mark your opening picks: étape 4, image 1 de 3 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement, Mark your opening picks: étape 4, image 2 de 3 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement, Mark your opening picks: étape 4, image 3 de 3
    • If inserted too far, an opening pick can damage your device. Follow this step to mark your pick and prevent damage.

    • Measure 3 mm from the tip and mark the opening pick with a permanent marker.

    • You can also mark the other corners of the pick with different measurements.

    • Alternatively, tape a coin to a pick 3 mm from the tip.

  5. iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement, Tape over any cracks: étape 5, image 1 de 3 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement, Tape over any cracks: étape 5, image 2 de 3 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement, Tape over any cracks: étape 5, image 3 de 3
    • If your iPhone has a cracked screen, keep further breakage contained and prevent bodily harm during your repair by taping over the glass.

    • Lay overlapping strips of clear packing tape over the iPhone's screen until the whole face is covered.

    • Wear safety glasses to protect your eyes from any glass shaken free during the repair.

    • If you can't get the suction cup to stick in the next few steps, fold a strong piece of tape (such as duct tape) into a handle and lift the screen with that instead.

    • If all else fails, you can superglue the suction cup to the screen.

  6. iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement, Anti-Clamp instructions: étape 6, image 1 de 3 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement, Anti-Clamp instructions: étape 6, image 2 de 3 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement, Anti-Clamp instructions: étape 6, image 3 de 3

    • The next three steps demonstrate the Anti-Clamp, a tool we designed to make the opening procedure easier. If you aren't using the Anti-Clamp, skip down three steps for an alternate method.

    • For complete instructions on how to use the Anti-Clamp, check out this guide.

    • Pull the blue handle backwards to unlock the Anti-Clamp's arms.

    • Slide the arms over either the left or right edge of your iPhone.

    • Position the suction cups near the bottom edge of the iPhone—one on the front, and one on the back.

    • Squeeze the cups together to apply suction to the desired area.

    • If you find that the surface of your iPhone is too slippery for the Anti-Clamp to hold onto, you can use tape to create a grippier surface.

  7. iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 7, image 1 de 3 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 7, image 2 de 3 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 7, image 3 de 3
    • Pull the blue handle forward to lock the arms.

    • Turn the handle clockwise 360 degrees or until the cups start to stretch.

    • Make sure the suction cups remain aligned with each other. If they begin to slip out of alignment, loosen the suction cups slightly and realign the arms.

  8. iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 8, image 1 de 3 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 8, image 2 de 3 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 8, image 3 de 3
    • Heat an iOpener and thread it through the arms of the Anti-Clamp.

    • You can also use a hair dryer, heat gun, or hot plate—but extreme heat can damage the display and/or internal battery, so proceed with care.

    • Fold the iOpener so it lays on the bottom edge of the iPhone.

    • Wait one minute to give the adhesive a chance to release and present an opening gap.

    • Insert an opening pick under the screen and the plastic bezel, not the screen itself.

    • If the Anti-Clamp doesn't create a sufficient gap, apply more heat to the area and rotate the handle a quarter turn.

    • Don't crank more than a quarter turn at a time, and wait one minute between turns. Let the Anti-Clamp and time do the work for you.

    • Skip the next three steps.

  9. iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 9, image 1 de 1
    • Heating the lower edge of the iPhone will help soften the adhesive securing the display, making it easier to open.

    • Use a hairdryer or heat gun or prepare an iOpener and apply it to the lower edge of the iPhone for about a minute in order to soften up the adhesive underneath.

    • If you use a hairdryer or heat gun, do not heat to much because that can result in damaging the screen.

  10. iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 10, image 1 de 2 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 10, image 2 de 2
    • If using a single suction handle, apply it to the bottom edge of the phone, while avoiding the curved portion of the glass.

  11. iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 11, image 1 de 3 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 11, image 2 de 3 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 11, image 3 de 3
    • Pull up on the suction cup with firm, constant pressure to create a slight gap between the screen and the frame.

    • Insert an opening pick into the gap under the screen's plastic bezel, not the screen itself.

    • The watertight adhesive holding the screen 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 screen up and down to weaken the adhesive until you create enough of a gap to insert your tool.

  12. iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 12, image 1 de 3 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 12, image 2 de 3 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 12, 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 display in place.

    • Don't insert your pick more than 3 mm, as you may damage internal components.

  13. iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement, Screen information: étape 13, image 1 de 1
    • There are delicate cables along the right edge of your iPhone. Don't insert your pick here, as you may damage the cables.

  14. iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 14, image 1 de 3 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 14, image 2 de 3 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 14, 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 pick more than 3 mm, as you may damage the display cables.

  15. iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 15, image 1 de 3 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 15, image 2 de 3 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 15, image 3 de 3
    • The top edge of the display is secured with both glue and clips.

    • Slide the opening pick around the top corner of the display, while gently pulling or wiggling the display down in the direction of the Lightning port.

    • The clips will break if you use too much force. Work carefully and be patient.

    • Don't insert your pick more than 3 mm, as you may damage the front panel sensor array.

    • Slide the pick to the opposite corner and cut any remaining adhesive securing the display.

  16. iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 16, image 1 de 1
    • Pull on the small nub on the suction cup to remove it from the front panel.

  17. iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 17, image 1 de 3 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 17, image 2 de 3 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 17, image 3 de 3
    • Open the iPhone by swinging the display up from the left side, like the back cover of a book.

    • Don't try to fully separate the display yet, as several fragile ribbon cables still connect it to the iPhone's logic board.

    • As pictured, make sure the frame comes off with display and doesn't get stuck in the device.

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

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

  40. iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement, Battery: étape 40, image 1 de 1
    • The iPhone X's battery is secured to the rear case by four pieces of stretch-release adhesive—one on the top cell, and three on the bottom.

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

  41. iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 41, image 1 de 3 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 41, image 2 de 3 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 41, image 3 de 3
    • Separate the first battery adhesive tab from the bottom edge of the battery.

    • Each tab has a small loop in the center; insert a tool through the loop if you're having trouble grabbing hold of the tab.

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

  42. iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 42, image 1 de 3 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 42, image 2 de 3 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 42, image 3 de 3
    • Repeat the above step to separate the remaining two adhesive tabs from the bottom edge of the battery.

    • Take care not to damage the speaker cable connector just below the center adhesive tab.

  43. iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 43, image 1 de 3 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 43, image 2 de 3 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 43, image 3 de 3
    • In the following steps, you'll pull each tab to slowly stretch out the adhesive underneath the battery. This special stretch-release adhesive loses its tack when stretched and then comes out in your hand, allowing you to lift out the battery with ease.

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

    • To increase your odds of success:

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

    • Keep the strips flat and unwrinkled as you pull.

    • Pull very slowly, giving the strip time to stretch and separate. It takes around 15-30 seconds of stretching to remove each strip.

    • Pull at a low angle so the strip doesn't snag along the bottom edge of the battery.

    • If a strip does break off underneath the battery and cannot be retrieved, move on to the other strips and then continue with the additional steps below.

    • Grab one of the outer battery adhesive tabs and slowly pull it away from the battery, toward the bottom of the iPhone.

    • Pull steadily, maintaining constant tension on the strip until it slips out from between the battery and the rear case.

    • The strip will stretch to many times its original length. Continue pulling and re-grab the strip near the battery if necessary.

    • If the battery adhesive tabs break during the removal process, use your fingers or blunt tweezers to retrieve the remaining length of adhesive, and continue pulling.

    • If any of the adhesive strips break underneath the battery and cannot be retrieved, try to remove the remaining strips, and then proceed as instructed below.

  45. iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 45, image 1 de 3 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 45, image 2 de 3 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 45, image 3 de 3
    • Repeat the previous step to remove the strip on the opposite side, leaving the center strip for last.

  46. iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 46, image 1 de 3 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 46, image 2 de 3 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 46, image 3 de 3
    • Remove the center strip, being careful not to snag it on the speaker flex cable.

  47. iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 47, image 1 de 2 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 47, image 2 de 2
    • The final pull tab lies very close to the Face ID hardware. If damaged, Face ID can only be repaired by Apple, so work with care.

    • Peel and separate the pull tab on the final adhesive strip, on the top edge of the upper battery cell.

  48. iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 48, image 1 de 3 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 48, image 2 de 3 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 48, image 3 de 3
    • Pull and remove the final adhesive strip.

    • The strip may fling the battery when it separates from the iPhone, so hold your hand over the battery to secure it—but don't press down on the battery itself, or the added pressure may cause the adhesive strip to break off underneath the battery.

    • If you removed all four adhesive strips successfully, skip the next step.

    • If the adhesive breaks off underneath the battery and can't be retrieved, apply a few drops of high concentration (over 90%) 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 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.

    • Be careful not to damage the ribbon cables or the wireless charging coil directly underneath the battery.

    • For alternative methods to unstick the battery from the case, continue to the next step below.

  49. iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement, Alternative method to unstick the battery from the case: étape 49, image 1 de 2 iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement, Alternative method to unstick the battery from the case: étape 49, image 2 de 2
    • If any of the adhesive strips broke off and the battery remains stuck to the rear case, prepare an iOpener or use a hair dryer to heat the rear case directly behind the battery.

    • Heat the iPhone until the rear case is slightly too hot to comfortably touch. Don't overheat the iPhone, or you may accidentally ignite the battery.

    • Flip the iPhone back over and thread a strong piece of string (such as dental floss or a length of thin guitar string) underneath the battery.

    • Wrap the ends of the string around a cloth (or wear gloves) to protect your fingers.

    • Pull the string from side to side in a sawing motion all along the length of the battery to separate the adhesive. This can take some time since the adhesive is slow to deform, but with patience it will come free. Do not deform or damage the battery.

    • If you choose to use pry tools to lift the battery out of the iPhone, use extreme caution or you may damage the ribbon cables or the wireless charging coil directly underneath the battery.

  50. iPhone X Lightning Connector Replacement: étape 50, image 1 de 1
    • Grasp the battery from the bottom edge and remove it from the iPhone.

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

    • Reinstall the Taptic Engine and speaker before installing a new battery. This helps keep the battery aligned correctly during installation.

    • Before you adhere the replacement battery, temporarily reconnect the battery connector to the logic board socket. This ensures that the battery is properly aligned in its recess.

    • Adhere the battery, disconnect it, and continue reassembling your device.

    • If your new battery does not 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.

I love how the Standoff screwdriver is not mentioned at the beginning in "What you need" and that I disassembled my whole phone just to not be able to change my charging port because of two screws. Thank you guys!

Yes, that was an oversight on my part and has since been corrected. You do realize that iFixit is a community effort and that you also have the power to make changes to these guides when you find an issue, don't you? Your snarky complaint could have been a constructive piece of criticism accompanied by you fixing the problem you encountered, but it's so much easier just to ##&&%, isn't it?

So yeah, you go ahead and author your own guide with no help from anyone else and do it perfectly the first time.

By the way, I've fixed a dozen iPhones without owning a standoff screwdriver until just recently; now that I have it I still haven't had the opportunity to use it.
