    • Drain your watch battery below 25% before starting this repair. A charged battery may catch fire if damaged.

    • Take your watch off the charger and power it down.

    • If your touchscreen is broken and you can't power off the watch, use this alternate method to power it down.

    • Because the gap between the screen assembly and frame is so small, a thin metal tool is needed to pry the screen up. Read the following warnings before you start disassembly:

    • Protect your fingers by keeping them completely clear of the front end of your tool. You can protect your free hand with a heavy glove, such as a leather shop glove or gardening glove.

    • Be careful not to apply too much pressure, as this might cause the iFlex to slip and cut you, or damage the watch.

    • Wear eye protection. The glass may break, sending pieces flying.

    • Attach or remove the watch bands as needed to provide more control as you make repairs.

  3. Apple Watch Ultra Battery Replacement, Soften the screen adhesive: stap 3, afbeelding 1 van 1
    • Heat an iOpener and apply it to the screen for two minutes to loosen the adhesive underneath.

    • You can also use a hair dryer, heat gun, or hot plate, but be careful not to overheat the watch—the screen and internal battery are both susceptible to heat damage.

  4. Apple Watch Ultra Battery Replacement, Insert the iFlex: stap 4, afbeelding 1 van 3 Apple Watch Ultra Battery Replacement, Insert the iFlex: stap 4, afbeelding 2 van 3 Apple Watch Ultra Battery Replacement, Insert the iFlex: stap 4, afbeelding 3 van 3
    • Place the tip of an iFlex along the edge opposite the Digital Crown and position it in the seam between the screen and the frame.

    • Press the iFlex firmly straight down into the gap.

    • The gap between the screen and the frame is very small, and it makes inserting the iFlex difficult. Don't force the iFlex in, or you risk damaging the screen. If you're having trouble, apply more heat and try again.

  5. Apple Watch Ultra Battery Replacement, Pry up the screen: stap 5, afbeelding 1 van 2 Apple Watch Ultra Battery Replacement, Pry up the screen: stap 5, afbeelding 2 van 2
    • Use the iFlex to pry up the screen.

    • The adhesive requires time and constant force to loosen—it probably won't loosen from the initial pry. Reheat the screen and keep applying constant force until the adhesive loosens.

    • Slide the opening pick around the top left corner and along the top edge of the watch to slice the screen adhesive.

  12. Apple Watch Ultra Battery Replacement, Lift the screen: stap 12, afbeelding 1 van 2 Apple Watch Ultra Battery Replacement, Lift the screen: stap 12, afbeelding 2 van 2
    • Insert the opening pick between the screen and frame at the opposite edge of the Digital Crown.

    • Pry up the screen until you can get a good grip with your fingers.

    • Don't try to remove the screen all the way yet. It's still connected to the watch body.

Conclusie

If possible, turn on your device and test your repair before installing new adhesive and resealing.

To reassemble your Apple Watch Ultra, follow these instructions in reverse order. Apply a little bit of high isopropyl alcohol (>90%) to a Q-tip or use a cleaning pad to gently remove the leftover adhesive on the edges of the watch case and the screen before installing new adhesive.

For optimal performance, calibrate your newly installed battery after completing this guide.

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