In case that your screen of the iPhone 11 is cracked, does not respond to touch, or does not display an image when the phone is turned on, you can use this guide to replace the display yourself.

The combined speaker + headphone sensor assembly attached to the back of the display is paired with your individual iPhone at the factory, so you need to transfer it from the old display to the new one whenever you replace the display.  It contains a flood illuminator, which is part of the biometric security element Face ID.  If the Face ID is damaged or replaced, it will stop working, so be careful not to damage any of these components during this procedure.  In the event of damage, only Apple or an authorized Apple technician can restore Apple ID.

Note: True Tone is disabled after the screen is replaced, even when using the original Apple screen.  In addition, your iPhone may temporarily display a ,,genuine" warning.

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.
  • Don’t 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, so 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 adhesive that holds 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 adhesive 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 6Removing the logic board cover

  • Remove the five 1.3 mm long screws using the Pentalobe screwdriver (Y) securing the logic board cover 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 7Remove the battery connector cover

  • Remove the three 1.1 mm long screws using a Pentalobe screwdriver (Y) securing the battery connector cover 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 8Disconnecting of the battery

  • Use the tip of the Spudger to disconnect the battery connector on the system board from the system board.
  • Bend the connector slightly away from the system board to prevent accidental contact with the outlet and power to the phone during repair.

Step 9Disconnect the OLED display + digitizer

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

Step 10Disconnecting the front sensors

  • Disconnect the front sensor flex cable connector using the Spudger.
  • Then remove the display

Step 11Unscrewing the front assembly

  • Remove the four screws that secure the speaker and sensor assembly:

- Three 1.6 mm screws

- One screw Y000 1.3 mm

Step 12Removing the light sensor cover

  • Use tweezers to remove the small holder directly up from the sensor.
  • Then disconnect the sensor connector.

Step 13Peeling off the speaker assembly

  • Use the Spudger to gently peel off the speaker assembly.

The speaker assembly is attached using very thin flex cables.  Be careful not to strain or damage the cables.

Step 14Install a new LCD display

  • Install the speaker + front sensor assembly on the new LCD display.

To reinstall, follow these instructions in reverse order.
