iPhone 7 Plus Lightning Connector Assembly Replacement

Wat je nodig hebt

  1. iPhone 7 Plus Lightning Connector Assembly Replacement, Pentalobe Screws: stap 1, afbeelding 1 van 1
    • Before you begin, discharge your iPhone battery below 25%. A charged lithium-ion battery can catch fire and/or explode if accidentally punctured.

    • Power off your iPhone before beginning disassembly.

    • Remove the two 3.4 mm pentalobe screws at the bottom edge of the iPhone.

    • Opening the iPhone's display will compromise its waterproof seals. Have replacement seals ready before you proceed past this step, or take care to avoid liquid exposure if you reassemble your iPhone without replacing the seals.

  2. iPhone 7 Plus Lightning Connector Assembly Replacement, Mark your opening picks: stap 2, afbeelding 1 van 3 iPhone 7 Plus Lightning Connector Assembly Replacement, Mark your opening picks: stap 2, afbeelding 2 van 3 iPhone 7 Plus Lightning Connector Assembly Replacement, Mark your opening picks: stap 2, afbeelding 3 van 3
    • If inserted too far, an opening pick can damage your device. Follow this step to mark your pick and prevent damage.

    • Measure 3 mm from the tip and mark the opening pick with a permanent marker.

    • You can also mark the other corners of the pick with different measurements.

    • Alternatively, tape a coin to a pick 3 mm from the tip.

  3. iPhone 7 Plus Lightning Connector Assembly Replacement, Anti-Clamp instructions: stap 3, afbeelding 1 van 3 iPhone 7 Plus Lightning Connector Assembly Replacement, Anti-Clamp instructions: stap 3, afbeelding 2 van 3 iPhone 7 Plus Lightning Connector Assembly Replacement, Anti-Clamp instructions: stap 3, afbeelding 3 van 3
    • The next three steps demonstrate the Anti-Clamp, a tool we designed to make the opening procedure easier. If you aren't using the Anti-Clamp, skip down three steps for an alternate method.

    • For complete instructions on how to use the Anti-Clamp, check out this guide.

    • Pull the blue handle backwards to unlock the Anti-Clamp's arms.

    • Slide the arms over either the left or right edge of your iPhone.

    • Position the suction cups near the bottom edge of the iPhone just above the home button—one on the front, and one on the back.

    • Squeeze the cups together to apply suction to the desired area.

    • If you find that the surface of your iPhone is too slippery for the Anti-Clamp to hold onto, you can use tape to create a grippier surface.

  4. iPhone 7 Plus Lightning Connector Assembly Replacement: stap 4, afbeelding 1 van 3 iPhone 7 Plus Lightning Connector Assembly Replacement: stap 4, afbeelding 2 van 3 iPhone 7 Plus Lightning Connector Assembly Replacement: stap 4, afbeelding 3 van 3
    • Pull the blue handle forwards to lock the arms.

    • Turn the handle clockwise 360 degrees or until the cups start to stretch.

    • Make sure the suction cups remain aligned with each other. If they begin to slip out of alignment, loosen the suction cups slightly and realign the arms.

  5. iPhone 7 Plus Lightning Connector Assembly Replacement: stap 5, afbeelding 1 van 2 iPhone 7 Plus Lightning Connector Assembly Replacement: stap 5, afbeelding 2 van 2
    • Heat an iOpener and thread it through the arms of the Anti-Clamp.

    • You can also use a hair dryer, heat gun, or hot plate—but extreme heat can damage the display and/or internal battery, so proceed with care.

    • Fold the iOpener so it lays on the bottom edge of the iPhone.

    • Wait one minute to give the adhesive a chance to release and present an opening gap.

    • Insert an opening pick into the gap.

    • If the Anti-Clamp doesn't create a sufficient gap, apply more heat to the area and rotate the handle a quarter turn.

    • Don't crank more than a quarter turn at a time, and wait one minute between turns. Let the Anti-Clamp and time do the work for you.

    • Skip the next three steps.

  6. iPhone 7 Plus Lightning Connector Assembly Replacement, Heat the display: stap 6, afbeelding 1 van 1
    • The next three steps show how to separate the screen using a suction cup.

    • Heating the lower edge of the iPhone will help soften the adhesive securing the display, making it easier to open.

    • Use a hairdryer or prepare an iOpener and apply it to the lower edge of the phone for about 90 seconds in order to soften up the adhesive underneath.

  7. iPhone 7 Plus Lightning Connector Assembly Replacement, Separate the display: stap 7, afbeelding 1 van 2 iPhone 7 Plus Lightning Connector Assembly Replacement, Separate the display: stap 7, afbeelding 2 van 2
    • Apply a suction cup to the lower half of the front panel, just above the home button.

    • Be sure the suction cup does not overlap with the home button, as this will prevent a seal from forming between the suction cup and front glass.

  8. iPhone 7 Plus Lightning Connector Assembly Replacement: stap 8, afbeelding 1 van 3 iPhone 7 Plus Lightning Connector Assembly Replacement: stap 8, afbeelding 2 van 3 iPhone 7 Plus Lightning Connector Assembly Replacement: stap 8, afbeelding 3 van 3
    • Pull up on the suction cup with firm, constant pressure to create a slight gap between the screen and the frame.

    • Insert an opening pick into the gap.

    • The watertight adhesive holding the screen in place is very strong; creating this initial gap takes a significant amount of force. If you're having a hard time opening a gap, apply more heat, and gently rock the screen up and down to weaken the adhesive until you create enough of a gap to insert your tool.

  9. iPhone 7 Plus Lightning Connector Assembly Replacement: stap 9, afbeelding 1 van 3 iPhone 7 Plus Lightning Connector Assembly Replacement: stap 9, afbeelding 2 van 3 iPhone 7 Plus Lightning Connector Assembly Replacement: stap 9, afbeelding 3 van 3
    • Slide the opening pick up the left edge of the phone starting at the lower edge and moving towards the volume control buttons and silent switch, breaking up the adhesive holding the display in place.

    • Stop near the top left corner of the display.

    • Do not try to pry the top edge of the display away from the rear case, as it is held in place by plastic clips that may break.

  10. iPhone 7 Plus Lightning Connector Assembly Replacement, Screen information: stap 10, afbeelding 1 van 1
    • There are delicate cables along the right edge of your iPhone. Don't insert your pick here, as you may damage the cables.

    • Re-insert your tool at the lower right corner of the iPhone, and slide it around the corner and up the right side of the phone to separate the adhesive.

    • Don't insert your pick more than 3 mm, as you may damage the display cables.

  12. iPhone 7 Plus Lightning Connector Assembly Replacement: stap 12, afbeelding 1 van 2 iPhone 7 Plus Lightning Connector Assembly Replacement: stap 12, afbeelding 2 van 2
    • Gently pull up on the suction cup to lift up the bottom edge of the display.

    • Do not raise the display more than 15º or you'll risk straining or tearing the ribbon cables connecting the display.

    • Pull on the small nub on the suction cup to remove it from the front panel.

  13. iPhone 7 Plus Lightning Connector Assembly Replacement: stap 13, afbeelding 1 van 3 iPhone 7 Plus Lightning Connector Assembly Replacement: stap 13, afbeelding 2 van 3 iPhone 7 Plus Lightning Connector Assembly Replacement: stap 13, afbeelding 3 van 3
    • Slide an opening pick underneath the display around the top left corner and along the top edge of the phone to loosen the last of the adhesive.

  14. iPhone 7 Plus Lightning Connector Assembly Replacement: stap 14, afbeelding 1 van 2 iPhone 7 Plus Lightning Connector Assembly Replacement: stap 14, afbeelding 2 van 2

    • Open the iPhone by swinging the display up from the left side, like the back cover of a book.

    • Don't try to fully separate the display yet, as several fragile ribbon cables still connect it to the iPhone's logic board.

    • Lean the display against something to keep it propped up while you're working on the phone.

  16. iPhone 7 Plus Lightning Connector Assembly Replacement, Battery Disconnection: stap 16, afbeelding 1 van 1
    • Remove the following four tri-point Y000 screws securing the lower display cable bracket to the logic board:

    • A rubber gasket on the bottom of the Lightning connector protects your iPhone from liquid and dust intrusion. If you are installing a new Lightning connector assembly, you may need to carefully remove and transfer the gasket to the new part.

    • The small adhesive patch on the bottom of each microphone also protects your iPhone from liquid and dust intrusion. For best results, replace the two adhesive patches before installing your Lightning connector assembly.

Conclusie

Compare your new replacement part to the original part—you may need to transfer remaining components or remove adhesive backings from the new part before installing.

To reassemble your device, follow the above steps in reverse order.

NOTE TO ALL: When you put the port back in, LINE UP THE HOLES ON THE FRAME. If you don’t line up the holes perfectly on the cable (even if it’s off by a millimeter), the cable will NOT extend and plug into the logic board. It has to be perfect. You’re welcome :)

I have this issue but cant seem to get it to set properly? any ideas the po seems like it's in fine but wont connect to logic board

Sean Smyth -

I feel like this is the most important piece of information on this entire guide. I drove myself mad disassembling and reassembling multiple iPhone 7/8 Plus devices with this exact issue.

Conrad -

So i did this and now my home button does not work. Any suggestions?

Brandon Rasco - Antwoord

So far as I can tell, the only part of this procedure that affects the home button is when it’s disconnected from the board in step 14. I’d probably double-check those connectors to make sure they’re seated properly for a start. Check the sockets for dust/debris or pin damage. Inspect the cables for damage. While you’re troubleshooting, remember to always disconnect the battery first and reconnect it last. Good luck!
