Inleiding

Cracked screen? Touch not working? Bad OLED display? Use this guide to restore your iPhone X to working order with a new OLED screen and digitizer. Trying a new screen may also help if your iPhone X seemingly won’t turn on.

Note: The combined earpiece speaker + sensor assembly affixed to the back of the display is paired to your individual iPhone from the factory, so you must transfer it from your old display to your new one as instructed below during any display replacement. It contains the flood illuminator, which is part of the biometric Face ID security feature. If it is damaged or replaced, Face ID will cease to function, so take extra care not to damage any of these components during this procedure. If damaged, only Apple can restore Face ID function.

Note: If your iPhone’s auto brightness feature does not work properly after your screen repair, make sure your iPhone is updated to iOS 12. True Tone functionality is disabled after a screen replacement, even when using an original Apple screen.

  1. Before you begin, discharge your iPhone battery below 25%. A charged lithium-ion battery can catch fire and/or explode if accidentally punctured.
    • 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 6.9 mm-long pentalobe screws at the bottom edge of the iPhone.

    • If the screws are stripped or damaged, replace the screws.

    • 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.

    There are 6.81mm long screws!

    Same issue for me too, how do I get the stripped screw out?

    patrick27leiser - Antwoord

    Update: I was able to get the “stripped” screw out using another Pentalobe-2 screwdriver bit from another company. It seems it wasn’t the screw, but the screw driver that was actually stripped. Hence why the other screwdriver kit I got came with 3 of this bit, I suppose.

    patrick27leiser - Antwoord

    I ended up going to a jewelry store, and they drilled down into the screw, with of course an incredibly tiny bit. That allowed me to insert the P2 driver, and I was able to unscrew it at that point. Good luck!

  2. If your iPhone has a cracked screen, keep further breakage contained and prevent bodily harm during your repair by taping over the glass. Lay overlapping strips of packing tape over the iPhone's display until the whole face is covered. This will keep glass shards contained and provide structural integrity when prying and lifting the display.

    • Wear safety glasses to protect your eyes from any glass shaken free during the repair.

    • If the broken glass makes it difficult to get a suction cup to stick in the next few steps, try folding a strong piece of tape (such as duct tape) into a handle and lifting the display with that instead.

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

    • Use a hairdryer or heat gun or prepare an iOpener and apply it to the lower edge of the iPhone for about a minute in order to soften up the adhesive underneath.

    General tip regarding heating necessary to remove adhesive:

    consider using a heated tip of a small screwdriver or metal spudger (not the one made of plastic, provided in kit), rather than to heat the device itself.

    Uri - Antwoord

    You then need to be careful about the temp of the tool which if hot enough can melt plastic components or harm them. Keeping the heat source (heat gun) far enough away from the object that you’ll eventually melt the glue but would be much harder to melt components. I try to keep 4” or 5” gap between the source & object

  7. Pull up on the suction cup with firm, constant pressure to create a slight gap between the front panel and rear case. Insert an opening pick into the gap. The watertight adhesive holding the display 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.

    • Remove five Y000 screws securing the logic board connector bracket, of the following lengths:

    • Three 1.1 mm screws

    • One 3.1 mm screw

    • One 3.7 mm screw

    • Throughout this repair, keep track of each screw and make sure it goes back exactly where it came from to avoid damaging your iPhone.

    One thing I found helpful for replacing the screws was to use only the 000screwdriver tip, without the handle. This way, the tip isn’t magnetized and the screw doesn’t tend to ‘roll’ off the screwdriver tip (the screw has almost no mass, so the head (largest surface) is pulled around to the side of the screwdriver tip when magnetized).

    I tested it, then proceeded to close up the device without the bracket. Do I need to reopen and install? All connections are good?

    It is part of the face id part so yes. This is the ear piece too so if the ribbon tears there is a chance the ear piece will stop working as well.

    Stephen Patterson - Antwoord

    Be super careful handling this ribbon particularly. I did a battery install and, when I was done, I had a phone with a new battery and no Face ID. That’s a $300 Apple repair, and no 3rd party shop will touch it. I believe the ribbon lays vertically (i.e., perpendicular to the “floor” of the phone, against the side edge of the battery. During the re-install, I must have forced the ribbon into position after seating the connector, causing fatal flexing of the ribbon. (Don’t know this for sure, but I see another comment saying that this cable is part of Face ID.) Anyway, bottom line: BE CAREFUL REMOVING AND REINSTALLING THIS RIBBON!

    Salvatore Boenzi - Antwoord

    You could try using an old screwdriver & carefully adding a dab of superglue to the screw to attach it to the screwdriver, Then the screw may come out, Superglue’s strength is holding 2 pieces together when the stress point is pulling the 2 pieces away from each other. Superglue becomes surprisingly easy to break when twisting the 2 pieces. So be careful since the rotation of the screw will put the stress point at the weakest of the glue’s strength.

    Adam O'Camb -

    I find it better, regardless of if your new screen comes with the transparent front camera frame, to remove the front sensor assembly from the old screen with the frame, and lifting up the whole assembly using the frame. That way you do not need to apply heat directly to the fragile assembly, but apply it to the other side, the front of the screen at the top, instead, to soften the frame adhesive. The frame is then usually easy to pry loose using a narrow spudger, and comes off cleanly. After that it is much easier to remove the sensors and microphone from the frame, no heat needed usually. And if your new screen doesn’t come with the frame, just plonk the whole frame/sensor assembly down in the right place, and boom, Bob’s your uncle.

    Hello I have an iPhone X i Bought it in 2019 with Face ID not working ( not available try later ) I think the screen was changed with another original , tru tone Off , Als off no auto brightness (and the PROXIMITY SENSOR too ! ) no black screen in calls, i would like to ask u if the earpiece speaker flex was changed with another one (all components ) not the original , did proximity sensor still work ?? Because I don’t know is the original flex of my iphone or not ? I found some scratches in the flex it appears to have small cut so I don’t know the PROXIMITY SENSOR not working because there are a small cut in the flex or because the flex is not the same ?? And if the flex is not the original it can disable (proximity sensor)too not only flood and als ?? Thank you

    Ach - Antwoord

    Yes it should still work. If you change the assembly to one that isn’t original to that iPhone X everything except the FaceID should still work - I have done so several times for clients. So the reason for yours not working is probably the same small scratches and cuts you have seen. The cable is a bit fragile and some of the copper leads running through it are extremely thin.

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.

Take your e-waste to an R2 or e-Stewards certified recycler.

Scott Miller - Antwoord

yeah, also face id will not work if you don’t replace the flex. Just be careful

jump1n -

FaceID is diabled if the hardware detects a new FaceID module. Using the original parts avoids this issue so that the FaceID feature is’t disabled. This could prevent a FaceID module from being replaced with a doctored or unlicensed part which may fail to provide the same level of security than the Apple supplied part.

That frame and wifi aerial cable glued to the underside runs right next to the Taptic Engine . The frame also carries three EMC Grounding Pads. Its shown in Step 23 of the iPhone X Taptic Engine Replacement Guide but they dont mentions what the cable is. iFixit dont carry it as a spare part either.

So is the iPhone XS’s cracked screen replacement different from the iPhone X’s?

lucas mariani - Antwoord

@lucasmar The procedure for the XS screen replacement is very nearly identical—you can find the guide for it right here.

Does anyone of you know that when you replace iphone x display, you need to transfer codes from the old cracked display to work fine?

amar762 - Antwoord

Yes, it is needed for TrueTone to work perfect. I guess Apple fixed it on newer updates, but i’m pretty sure there’s a tool to trasnfer the “serial number” of the old screen into your old one. I may get one for the shop soon!

Rafael B -

The codes are not transferred. Certain components are have an ID number similar to a MAC address. The components have unique IDs & are registered with the hardware at time of manufacture, When replacing some components, like an LCD display, the unique ID components are transferred from the old part, the LCD display, to the new part, This maintains the functionality of those components, Replacement components need software only available to authorized Apple repair centers to add the new component IDs to the unit. In features like FaceID, this increases the security of iPhones by making it much more difficult to exchange components used by FaceID with components which have been hacked to make it easier to corrupt the iPhone security or for less reputable sources to sell cheaper fake components,

Is it possible to separate the digitizer and OLED flex cables from the screen and just replace them?

A_Bortz - Antwoord

Possible, sure. Practical, no. You’d need an expensive microsoldering rig and a fair bit of practice to pull it off, plus a donor screen to get the cables from. From a DIY perspective, it’s far faster and cheaper to simply replace the entire display.

Jeff Suovanen -

if you are replacing the iphone x screen with a screen from a different iphone X is everything the same

Luke Squire - Antwoord

No, you need to transfer the earpiece speaker/ sensor flex cable in order for Face ID to work. If you break/ rip or forget to transfer it the display should still work fine… BUT…. no Face ID :(

Rafael B -

After replacing the display correctly, will the face id work?

Gavino Peluso - Antwoord

Absolutely. If you did everything without mistakes you’re expecting the screen and all other functions to keep working.

Don’t forget to transfer the old earpiece speaker/ sensor flex cable from your broken screen so you can still use Face ID. That cable is paired by Apple to the logic board.

Rafael B -

Great work on the instructions on removing the lcd from my Iphone X. I ended up dropping it from my lap when I got out of the car and place a hairline crack but the screen still completely worked. I ended up purchasing a replacement oled and a glass to replace the cracked screen on a later time. All the info provided here is always right on point. I just want to let you know us techs appreciate a solid source of reliable detailed information with pictures as well. Thanks again and keep up the great work

I just finished this repair.

My new screen is showing incorrect battery information.

1. Not showing charging when plugged in.

2. Showing 1% charge. Charge was 30% when I started.

Any help would be fantastic. Thank you.

David Ewen - Antwoord

Battery needs to be recalibrated once the replacement is done, the wrong battery percentage is normal, but if is not charging should be also something else, have you disconnected the battery connector before any other operation?

Gabriel Vendrame -

i dont know what happened but im not getting poor WiFi and Bluetooth and cellular reception is there any thing wrong with the fame that comes with the new display replacement?

Mani Reddy - Antwoord

Exceptionally detailed and clear guide.

I tried to clean off display adhesive right away upon opening. Found it’s much easier once the 4 connectors are detached and the display screen separated from the rest of the phone. As for the battery, OLED and digitizer cable connectors, a fingernail works best for me to catch the edges without harming the black silicone seal around each of the connectors. The spudger is a bit less precise and without the same tactile finesse.

Thanks, Jeff Suovanen.

You must transfer the original sensor onto the new screen.

have they come out with a true tone fix for the IPhone X with a replacement screen yet? Have one with a cracked screen and was wanting to replace it, but not loose truetone feature. Thanks

Robert Briggs - Antwoord

True Tone can be restored with a screen programmer, although the programmer itself costs ~$50 or more—so it’s more economical if you’re doing more than one screen repair. We’ll have a guide with instructions for using the programmer sometime in the next month or so. If that’s something you’re interested in, keep your old screen—you’ll need to use the programmer to clone some data from the old screen to the new one.

Hi Jeff Suovanen,

Is there already a guide or a release date for the programmer you mentioned on previous comments? I would love to recover True Tone on my iPhone X :(

Guten Tag, habe den goldenen Endungskontakt verloren. Nach dem Umbau, funktioniert mein Face ID nicht mehr. Gibt es Möglichkeiten den Endungskontakt zu kaufen. Habe im Internet nichts gefunden.

k.karaguelle - Antwoord

salve, una domanda

perché dopo smontaggio e sostituzione dello schermo il riconoscimento facciale non funziona più?

Riccardo Mazzoni - Antwoord

Perché il face id come il touch id è associato alla scheda madre, ora se ha portato tutte le componenti dallo schermo rotto a quello nuovo dovrebbe funzionare mentre se ha acquistato uno schermo pre assemblato chiaramente non funzionerà mai.

Se invece rientra nel primo caso e ancora non funziona i connettori potrebbero non essere connessi correttamente o uno dei componenti del face id danneggiati (la cosa più probabile sono i flex cable che si rompono con niente durante la sostituzione)

Gabriel Vendrame -

A certificated Shop told me that the displays have to be coded that the True Tone works, I see they use a special software, and then the True Tone works. Have someone Informationen about the software they used to code the display. The touch reaction after the coding work also exactly like the original. I need to know more about their calibration software.

Fantastic! My battery swelled up and ruined my screen. Purchased a screen kit and battery and the repair went perfect. I originally was going to buy a screen and battery from amazon, but this kit was first class. The tools are very nice too. So in the end I’m glad I spent an extra $80 and got quality parts, great instruction, and nice tools. Best part is of course is my phone is aces again!

Does the replacement screen come with a new display module or is that a separate part??

Does this repair make any conflict with True Tone setting? I’ve heard that if I don’t connect the replacement screen to certain apple machine the True Tone setting disappears or is no longer adjustable.

Joon Han - Antwoord

That is correct. True Tone functionality is disabled after a screen replacement, even when using an original Apple screen.

Hello guys

I just replaced the screen for my Iphone X. I got the display from https://www.buypaz.com/en/original-apple...

But after replacing the screen and turning it on only the back light is functioning. I tried reusing the old display and it worked just fine. Is there any suggestions to why this one is not working or is my new screen just a bust ?

Jeremy - Antwoord

Because of my phone screen having the top half frozen, I cannot shut down my phone. Do I just wait for it to die completely? Before install?

dmstrohm - Antwoord

You can wait for it to die completely! If you don’t want to though, as long as the battery is at a low percentage and you disconnect it as soon as you open the phone (as this guide instructs), you should be okay. Best of luck to you!

Hi Pranit,

You do not need to reprogram the display to have it work, but True Tone is disabled after the repair.

Just completed the disassembly and the replacement of the screen up to Step 13 in reverse order (starting from the bottom of the guide). I am now attempting to power up the device, but it won’t come on. Any idea what I may have done wrong?

Alain-Daniel Wa-Baguma - Antwoord

Update: plugging the phone to my USB port in order to perform DFU reset caused it to reboot and start up. So, kudos to the author and editors of the guide!

Merci encore pour le tutoriel!

David Mariaux - Antwoord

So I’ll start with something nice I guess: the guide, like all ifixit guides, is very good and thorough.

However, I just completed this repair (twice…), and I’m not a happy camper. The first screen they sent me had really weird graphical glitching/tearing. The second replacement screen has a bright off-color “hot spot” right in the middle. The digitizer is pretty bad…it barely registers a “Reachability” swipe, and it frequently registers phantom touches and completely misses swipes/touches. The cherry on top is that it also drains my battery noticeably more quickly.

I’m not satisfied with this replacement. It’s non-trivial to change the screen and there’s no way for you to properly test it prior to taking your phone apart, so it’s a REALLY bad customer experience to receive a screen that never should have passed QA. I don’t know if all of these cheaper screens fail so miserably at correctly registering touches or if I’m just the unluckiest person in the world but I wouldn’t take my chances.

David Davis - Antwoord

I used this guide to simply cleaning out my speakers and jt worked fine. But I’m now having a display issue where right side of my screen is white/pink lines. Any clues on why this happening? I’ve tried plugging in the display multiple times and still the same results.
