How to replace your iPhone 5 battery

How to replace your iPhone 5 battery

15 minuten - 1 uur


Mijn probleem

The battery started to drain very quickly, also the phone would shut off prematurely, wrong battery % indicator.

Mijn oplossing

Took about 70 minutes, I don't take things apart frequently. Taking the screen off was the hardest part, there are tiny clips on each side, so I recommend trying to pull up the screen from the sides and bottom. Took about 10 minutes of trying (thought I wouldn't be able to do it, then 'pop!').

Not having magnetizes screwdrivers, in the fix kit, made the repair exponentially longer and more tedious. I finally had to use tweezers, to drop the screws in, before I tightened them.

I wish the guide had reverse button, so I didn't have to read the other way, may it a bit confusing.

After the repair, my phone worked perfectly the first time! The battery is acting normally, but maybe not as long as I would hope. Still much better than the alternative! I would buy from ifixit again for sure, though, I would invest in a magnetic tool set first.

Mijn advies

Don't give up, don't pay for others to do a job you are perfectly capable of performing. I am proud to have repaired my phone by myself and makes me want to do other projects.
