For an easier repair, use our fix kit and follow this shorter guide to replace your iPhone’s entire screen.

For more advanced fixers, this guide will help you replace only the iPhone’s LCD and digitizer assembly (a.k.a. the bare “front panel”). This requires you to transfer several components from your original screen to the new one before installing it—including the front-facing camera, earpiece speaker, LCD shield plate, and home button assembly.

For all screen/display repairs, it's important to transfer the original home button onto the new display in order for Touch ID (fingerprint scanning) to function.

Stap 4  ¶ 

Carefully lift—but do not remove—the  LCD shield plate by lifting the end nearest the earpiece speaker a few millimeters from the display assembly. Gently lift the other end (nearest the home button) to peel the home button cable off the display assembly. Be extremely cautious as you peel the home button cable. It is a fragile cable. If you feel more than slight resistance, we recommend reheating and reusing the iOpener to soften the adhesive.
