How to replace the battery in your iPhone 5s

How to replace the battery in your iPhone 5s

40 minuten


Mijn probleem

The iPhone 5s battery was gradually losing its normal charge duration. Following a full charge, it would end up at 50% capacity after about 7 hours of little to no use and no apps in background.

Mijn oplossing

Overall, the repair we well. Once I removed the Touch ID cable connector bracket the cable popped right out from the connector. I encountered a minor problem while attempting to remove the metal battery connector bracket. While I was able to remove the bottom screw, I stripped the upper screw head and could not remove it. Therefore, I bent the bracket up to allow me to remove the battery connector. Additionally, since I was only removing and replacing the battery I skipped steps 17-23.

Mijn advies

I found it difficult to impossible to effectively remove the adhesive strips holding the battery in place. I delicately tried to remove the strips but they continued to separate to a point where there was nothing left to grab on to. As I didn't have an iFixit iOpener, I used a hair dryer to heat up the adhesive strips for removal. While using the hair dryer, I slowly pried up on the battery with a stiff metal spatula (below the volume controls) for removal. Once the battery was removed I peeled away the remaining strips. If I had to do this again, I'd just grab the hair dryer as I can't imagine anyone having success at peeling away those strips very easily.
