Remove the battery from your iPhone 5.

Bring life back to your iPhone 5 with a new battery. If your battery is swollen, take appropriate precautions.

This guide instructs you to detach the front panel assembly; this is intended to prevent damage to the display cables. If you feel comfortable supporting the display carefully while peeling the battery out of the body, skip the display removal (steps 13-16) and go to the battery removal steps.

For optimal performance, after completing this guide, calibrate your newly installed battery: Charge it to 100% and keep charging it for at least two more hours. Then use your iPhone until it shuts off due to low battery. Finally, charge it uninterrupted to 100%.

You can also use this guide to replace the battery connector bracket.

Stap 1 Lifting the battery  ¶ 

Use the exposed clear plastic pull tab to peel the battery off the adhesive securing it to the iPhone.

Stap 1 Lifting the battery  ¶ 

  • Use the exposed clear plastic pull tab to peel the battery off the adhesive securing it to the iPhone.

  • If you have trouble peeling the battery up, use an iOpener or hair dryer to heat the rear case of the iPhone and soften the adhesive.

  • The plastic tab is fragile and may break. If your tab breaks before the battery is freed, refer to the following steps.

Stap 2 Using the iOpener  ¶ 

If the tab breaks off and the battery remains stuck to the rear case, prepare an iOpener or use a hair dryer to heat the rear case directly behind the battery.

  • If the tab breaks off and the battery remains stuck to the rear case, prepare an iOpener or use a hair dryer to heat the rear case directly behind the battery.

  • This will soften the adhesive holding the battery, making it easier and safer to pry out of the case.

Stap 3 Prying up the battery  ¶ 

Use the plastic opening tool to gently pry the battery up, only at the outside edge of the phone. Prying anywhere else, especially near the logic board, may result in damage to the logic board. If the battery doesn't pry easily out of the case, reheat and reapply the iOpener and try again.
