How to replace the battery in your iPhone 5s

1 uur


Mijn probleem

Battery shutting down while almost fully charged. Screen blurry, phantom typing, keyboard and touch screen not working properly, and apps opening randomly. There were so many things wrong with the phone, I figured I had nothing to lose.

Mijn oplossing

The repair went as the instructional video said it would, except for the tape (but it was my fault). I didn't pay close enough attention to video and did not remove the tape exactly as described. Once you mess this step up, it's very hard to correct. I used the tweezer to pull the tape to the side. It took several tries to get it all off. I was also able to fix the loose screen connector while I was in there. No more phantom typing and finally able to type and use keyboard. Phone is good as new.

Mijn advies

Tip #1 - Please do yourself a favor and watch the tape removal at least two to three times before attempting and follow the instructions EXACTLY. Tip #2 - Work on a bright surface or lay down a white sheet of paper underneath where you are working. I correctly labeled all of my screws as instructed but managed to lose two trying to put them back in. They're tiny. Luckily, the phone doesn't seem to miss them. Tip #3 - If you have $25 to spare, buy the iSclack as the regular suction cup really required precise force as to not damage the home button cable. I opened mine correctly but I can see this step going very wrong if you use too much force. Good luck!
