    • 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 6.7 mm-long pentalobe screws at the bottom edge of the iPhone.

    • Opening the iPhone 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.

    • There's a black rubber gasket just beneath the head on each pentalobe screw. For maximum protection against dust and liquid, check the condition of the gaskets or replace the screws during reassembly.

    One of my gaskets was as shown in your second photo, the other had been worked into the threads (as if smeared) probably from the factory and was completely unusable.

    In place of replacements (unsure of where to purchase) I just used a clear silicone caulking on both screws upon reassembly to offer at least some water seal. I wish these gaskets were included with the gasket waterproofing sealant kit!

  2. 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 packing tape over the iPhone's display until the whole face is covered. This will keep glass shards contained and provide structural integrity when prying and lifting the display.

    The included suction cups were stiff and worthless. They would not lift the screen. Also, I tried every type of tape on the screen to help the suction cups stick without success. Heavy duty suction cups were for my bathroom also failed. However, I had an old GoPro mount with some preapplied double sided 3M VSB tape and stuck that on the screen near the bottom. Magic! This method had the added bonus of being able to use a GoPro attachment as a handle to lift the screen, and propped up the screen like a kickstand in step 12.

    My screen was pretty stuck… would not budge. Heated, super glued the suction cup, tried gorilla tape. Ended up doing the GoPro mount with 3M VSB tape method mentioned. Worked great. That 3M tape is the bomb.

  3. Heating the lower edge of the iPhone helps soften the adhesive securing the display, making it easier to open.
    • Heating the lower edge of the iPhone helps 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.

    An alternative to the Iopener or heat gun is to heat water to EXACTLY 80 degrees F (cooking thermometer is great for this) and pour into a reinforced ziplock type bag. Leave the bag on the screen, but be sure that none of the hot water rests on the zipper portion, as the water is hot enough to soften that seal and leak out on to your device! This meat had is my personal favorite as the heat is distributed very equally and precisely as compared to a heat gun, but is more accessible than the Iopener.

    • Remove three 1.2 mm Y000 screws securing the battery connector cover bracket.

    • Remove the bracket.

    • 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.

    Definitely make sure all three lobes of your tool are aligned before use (it’s a little harder to tell with this style of bit) and apply even and adequate pressure to ensure it grabs as you spin the driver to prevent disfiguring the lobes/slot of the screw head.

    Unfortunately my Y000 tool was perhaps not the best fit (tolerance a bit off) in these screws and I ended up stripping out the heads of all three of these. I started to panic but after I sanded the tip of my Y000 bit down a little with super fine grit (1000CW-C) sand paper to flatten the domed tip (visible with macro lens) and give it a bit more bite I was able to remove and reinstall without issue—in fact I had to remove and install them twice since I forgot my adhesive tape during reassembly, so the screws survived and the sanded bit worked.

    I too broke this shield. In looking over this problem I believe it’s best to loosen, but not remove, either screw first then the other. To be clear, loosen the red or yellow screw but only just to break it free, then the second screw. Then remove both and the others and the shield should remain in one piece. I put it back with the broken part (on the red screw) and made sure the two are in contact so there’s conductivity as these shields serve a purpose other than just holding in connectors. My phone works fine with this fix.

    Kyaw-Zin is right because the shield contains of two tin parts. But there is another option:

    1. Unscrew the yellow and orange screws first.

if I replace the logic board will it remove a iCloud lock??????

caleb alvarez - Réponse

TL;DR: Yes, it should but…

All of the phone’s memory is stored on the NAND flash memory with is soldered to the logic board. Replacing the iCloud-locked logic board with a logic board from a phone that does not have an iCloud lock will technically remove the lock.

A terrible analogy would be like if you had had a tumor (iCloud lock) in your brain (MLB) so your surgeon (you, the technician) performed a brain transplant. Replacing the brain would indeed get rid of the tumor. However, your body (The phone’s housing) would just become the person of whose brain was transplanted into your body.

The only true way to remove an iCloud lock is to obtain the Apple ID & Apple ID password of the original owner.

You just have to try to find a good logic board and trust that the seller is legit. (Easier said than done)

This guide was more intended for those that are attempting micro-soldering repairs. However, you can use the guide for whatever you need. :-)

Ahmad Zia - Réponse

Great question! From what I’ve experienced, the Face ID hardware is similar to touch ID hardware in that it is tied to the phone’s logic board. However, FaceID does seem a little more forgiving. The phone I’m currently using is an iPhone X that was severely damaged. I bought it off a customer and installed a new screen but Face ID did not work. A couple months later, I was using an app that made use of face ID hardware for facial recognition and mapping. I thought it wouldn’t work since FaceID wasn’t working on my phone. To my surprise, it worked just fine. I then tried setting up FaceID and it was able to activate and capture my face.

If you’re looking to refurbish a phone, assume FaceId won’t work without the original hardware. However, your milage may vary.

Ben Meinhart -

Does the camera work even the face I'd doesn't work ?

Reynaldi Eko - Réponse

From what I’ve seen, yes it does. However, your milage may vary. Make sure you check to see if your cameras are good before you replacing/repairing the logic board. I’ve already had an iPhone XS where the cameras and flashlight stopped working. Replacing the iSight camera seemed to do the trick.

What could be the issue on my XR the restarts randomly… It takes several attempts to boot normally. But when I opened any app, the phone shuts down again. There are panic-full logs in the data analytics logs. Factory reset, IOS restoration and DFU did not help. Any idea? TIA

Noel de Chavez - Réponse

Unfortunately, it would be a shorter list if I told you what was unlikely to cause the iPhone XR to randomly reboot. Hopefully you have a computer or iCloud backup of the phone because I would suggest getting a different phone or talking to Apple. If data is needed, talk to a data recovery specialist like iPad Rehab. (Don’t expect Apple to even attempt to save your data).

I’m glad you found the guide helpful! There’s no magic shop to order a replacement logic board. If you can’t find one pre-vetted from a site like iFixit, you’ll have to try your luck with a resale site like eBay. I wish Apple was more open to repair and sold parts direct to consumers and shops. Then again, I also wish I had a pile of gold lol.

The different types of screws are denoted by color for each step. The size in millimeters give you the length of the screw measured by a digital caliper. Screw type is distinguished by the head of the screw. (Phillips #000)

@ipoint The guide was made to show how to remove the logic board, in which is accomplishes. It was mainly intended as a reference for anyone wanting to fix the board itself via micro soldering.
