Replacing the battery on the iPhone 4S requires minimal disassembly. If your battery is swollen, take appropriate precautions.

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%.

Stap 4  ¶ 

Before you reattach the battery connector during reinstallation, carefully position the pressure contact back in place. It should rest on top of the Philips screw post shown, and the gold contact should point towards the battery connector. Be sure to clean the pressure contact with a degreaser such as windex or isopropyl alcohol. The oils on your fingers have the potential to create wireless interference.

  • If your replacement battery came in a plastic sleeve, remove it before installation by pulling it away from the ribbon cable.

  • If your replacement battery came with an uncreased cable, carefully crease the cable into the proper shape before installing the battery into the phone.

  • While installing the replacement battery, temporarily connect the battery connector to the phone to ensure proper alignment. Once the battery is glued in place, disconnect the battery connector.

  • Perform a hard reset after reassembly. This can prevent several issues and simplify troubleshooting.
