    • 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. How to Open Your Apple Watch Ultra, 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.

    • 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.

    • 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.

Conclusie
