IPhone Screen Repair: How easy is it to replace your iPhone screen yourself?

Is it really possible to repair an iPhone screen yourself? We will take a look at the amount of technical knowledge you need to carry out an iPhone screen repair.

It goes without saying that the most common problem that iPhone users experience is a broken screen. Since iPhones are quite a delicate technology and the fact that the touch screen is made of glass, it is likely that if it is dropped, the iPhone screen will break. Then what do you do? Search eBay for a replacement display.

Replacement screens sold on eBay come with the necessary parts and tools for a successful screen replacement. However, how good are they?

Thanks to the vast experience in repair and replacement of iPhone screens, I can say that the tools that are sold on eBay are practically useless. The tools required are a Phillips screwdriver, razor blade or other cutting and scraping tool, tweezers, scissors, and double-sided or super glue tape.

The first step is to turn off the phone and remove the sim tray. Then, with a Phillips screwdriver, remove the 2 screws on the bottom of the iPhone. This will allow you to remove the back cover. Unscrew the battery connector that holds the battery in place and remove the connector and battery. The battery is stuck, so you must pull hard.

You need to remove 5 more screws on the top of the iPhone that holds the protector in place. Remove the protector very carefully as there are two hinges: the protector wraps in and under these hinges. This in itself is quite difficult as you will have to be very careful not to damage the tapes and internal components when removing it. https://elrepairit.com/

There are more screws and tapes that need to be removed. The iPhone camera needs to be completely removed along with the speaker and microphone.

It is actually very simple to plug in the new iPhone screen as it is just a tape that connects to the motherboard. However, it is extremely difficult to put all the parts together in their correct places and, more importantly, to put the screens back in the correct places, since they are of different sizes.

At this stage, a person without much technical knowledge has most likely damaged a tape on the motherboard or has completely lost how to replace the iPhone.
