Apple batteries are able to maintain 80% capacity during 500 charge cycles, which for most users take approximately 18-24 months.  Battery wear means charging more often, but it can also slow down your iPhone, so use this guide to restore full performance to your device.

This manual also includes instructions for completely disconnecting the display, removing the bottom speaker, and the taptic engine, for better access to the battery sealing strips.

After completing the repair, calibrate your new battery for optimal performance.  Charge the battery to 100% and let it charge for at least another 2 hours.  Then use iPhone until it's fully discharged, then charge to 100% without interruption.

Step 1Removing the pentalobe screws

Before starting, it is necessary to discharge the iPhone below 25% because a charged Li-ion battery can ignite or explode if accidentally cut.

  • Turn off iPhone
  • Unscrew the two 6.7mm long pentalob screws on the bottom edge of the iPhone using a Pentalobe screwdriver (Ph0001.2)

Opening iPhone will break its waterproof seal, so have a replacement seal ready before beginning this step.  Without a new seal, your iPhone will not be waterproof.

Step 2Opening 1

Warming the bottom edge of iPhone helps soften the screen protector and make it easier to open.

  • Using a hair dryer or heat gun, heat the bottom edge of iPhone for about 3 minutes to reach about 80 ° C.
  • Do not put iPhone in the microwave !!!

Step 3Opening 2

  • Place the suction cups near the bottom edge of iPhone, one at the front and the other at the back, and gently push it into place.
  • Hold your iPhone securely and use gentle suction cups to separate the screen from the back of the phone.
  • After separating the display approx. 3 mm from the back, insert the Fixservis card into the gap.

The glue that holds the display in place is very strong, thus creating this initial gap requires considerable force.  If you have difficulty, reheat the bottom edge and gently slide the screen up and down repeatedly to weaken the glue until you create a gap to insert the Fixservis card.

Step 4Opening 3

 

  • Slide the Fixservis card around the lower left corner and up the left edge to release the glue holding the display.
  • Repeat the same around the lower right corner and up the right edge.

Do not insert the card too deeply to avoid damaging the internal components of iPhone.

Step 5Opening 4

  • After successfully releasing the glue from the edges, remove the suction cups.
  • Open iPhone by turning the display to the left like a book.
  • We recommend that you support the display so that you do not tear off the flat cable that holds the display from the system board.

For now, don't try to completely detach the display, as a few fragile flat cables still connect it to the iPhone's motherboard.

Step 6Unscrew the battery connector cover

  • Remove the two 1.3 mm long screws using a Pentalobe screwdriver securing the battery cover bracket and remove at the same time.

Throughout the repair, follow each screw to make sure it returns exactly where it came from to avoid damaging your iPhone.

Step 7Disconnecting of the battery

  • Use the tip of the Spudger to disconnect the battery connector on the system board from the system board.

Try not to damage the black silicone seal surrounding this and other board connections.  These seals provide exceptional protection against the ingress of water and dust.

  • Bend the connector slightly away from the system board to prevent accidental contact with the outlet and power to the phone during repair.

Step 8Removing the System Board Cover

  • Using a Pentalobe screwdriver, unscrew the six 1.3 mm screws securing the logic board cover bracket, and then remove it.

Step 9Disconnect the OLED display + front sensor and digitizer

  • Disconnect the OLED panel cable connector, front sensor, and digitizer using the Spudger.

Step 10Remove the display assembly

  • Remove the display from the system board.

Step 11Remove the lower battery connector cover

  • Using a Pagoda screwdriver, unscrew the four 1.5 mm screws securing the bottom cover of the battery connector and remove it at the same time.

Step 12Disconnect the lower battery connector

  • Use the Spudger to disconnect the lower battery cable.

Step 13Removing the Taptic Engine

  • Use the Spudger to disconnect the Taptic Engine
  • Use a Pentalobe screwdriver to remove the three screws holding the Motor Taptic:

- 1st screw 1.9 mm long.

- 2nd screw 1.4 mm long.

- 3rd screw 4.1 mm long.

  • Then remove the Taptic Engine.

Throughout the repair, follow each screw to make sure it returns exactly where it came from to avoid damaging your iPhone.

Step 14Removing the flexible cable holder

  • Using a Pentalobe screwdriver, unscrew the two 1.4 mm screws securing the Lightning flex cable holder and then remove it.

Step 15Disconnecting of the Lighting flex cable

  • Use the Spudger to disconnect both connectors on the Lightning flex cable from the system board.
  • Gently lift the lightning flex cable and bend it slightly toward the bottom edge of the iPhone to gain better access to the battery below.

Step 16Peeling off the adhesive handles

  • The battery is attached to the back case with three pieces of adhesive clips - one near the bottom edge of the battery, the other at the top and the third on the right.
  • Each gluten has one or two black pull-out tabs at the end that are slightly glued to the side edges of the battery.
  • Grasp the tabs at the same time and slowly pull the adhesive away from the battery.
  • Repeat this process from all three sides.

Step 17Selection of battery

  • Remove the battery using the Spudger.

Step 18Gluing new adhesive tape on the new battery

  • Peel off the blue plastic sheet from the new set of adhesive tapes and discard.
  • Carefully place the adhesive tapes on the battery and stick them in place as shown.
  • Use your fingers or a cloth to firmly press the strips into place on the battery.
  • Press the center to attach the black control label to the battery as well.

Step 19Insert a new battery into iPhone

  • Carefully insert the battery into the iPhone.
  • Make sure the battery connector is in line with the system board.

Step 20Peel off the old adhesive around the edges of the iPhone

  • Remove the old glue along the edges of the iPhone.

Step 21Glue a new adhesive around the edges of the iPhone

  • Stick new gluten under the LCD Adhesive.
  • Reconnect the battery.

The new adhesive will ensure the iPhone's resistance to water and dust.

Step 22iPhone’s reassembly

  • When it comes to reinstalling, follow these instructions in reverse order.
