How To Replace The Earpiece

Find yourself a nice flat and well lit area to work on. You’ll need an area to lay down the screws you have removed. I like to keep a small sheet of paper nearby and lay the screws I’ve removed down on the paper and mark off where they were removed from. There are a number of different sized screws on the cover plates and it’s important that you put them back in the correct places.

The two most important parts of this repair are to keep your screws really well organised so that you know exactly which one came out of where and to be careful when working with the ribbon cables, especially when opening up your phone, they are extremely fragile.

If you enjoyed this guide, have a look at these other iPhone repairs you can do yourself. Most iPhone repairs can be done at home for a few dollars, so don’t replace your iPhone until you’ve had a look at whether you can repair it at home first.

Good luck with your repairs and let me know how it went in the comments section below.
