How To Replace Your iPhone Battery
Find yourself a nice, flat desk or counter to work on as you’ll need a bit of space to lay out the components as you take them out. Make sure to keep track of each screw as you’re taking them out as they are different lengths and sizes and you don’t want to damage components by putting long screws in the wrong place. It helps to draw a small sketch of the components and place each screw on the sketch as you remove them, this way you’ll always remember which one goes where.
The battery is held in place with a really strong double sided tape. Gently heating up the back of the iPhone case with a hair dryer or heater softens the adhesive a bit and makes it easier to remove. Be careful not to damage any of the ribbon cables for the side buttons near the top of the phone when you are prying underneath the battery.
Good luck and enjoy the repair. If you found this video helpful, please like it and subscribe to my channel for more tech videos.
