Replace the Battery in your iPhone 4 or 4S

iPhone 4 or 4S Battery ReplacementiPhone 4 Battery Kit

One of the major drawbacks of a phone that can do so much such as the iPhone is that it can take its toll on the battery. The battery life of the iPhone can diminish significantly over time. With one of our iPhone battery replacement kits you can breath life back into your iPhone for a fraction of the cost of a new iPhone. As well as this, replacing an iPhone 4 or 4S battery is one of the easier repairs to carry out.

  • Firstly turn off the iPhone and switch it to silent mode.
  • Unscrew the two screws at the bottom of the iPhone, one either side of the dock connector. Note that these screws can be one of two types. We supply both screwdrivers with our battery replacement kit so don’t worry.
  • Slide the back cover up towards the top of the iPhone. The rear panel of the iPhone will now be free from the phone so lift it away.
  • Remove the Phillips head screw from the connector on the battery that connects it to the circuit board. Sometimes there are two screws on this connector. If so, remove both screws.
  • Using one of the plastic spudger tools supplied in the iPhone battery replacement kit, gently pry the battery connector up from the circuit board. Now remove the contact clip from the iPhone.
  • There is a plastic Pull Tab that can be used to pull up the battery. In some cases, it can be difficult to separate the iPhone battery from the iPhone using this tab as there may be a lot of glue used. If so, you can pry the battery up using one of the plastic spudger tools supplied.
  • Put in the brand new iPhone 4 or 4S battery and follow the disassembly steps backwards to reassemble your iPhone.

Replace your iPhone 3G or 3GS screen in 5 mins!

Cracking or smashing the glass touch screen or LCD screen of an iPhone 3G or 3GS is extremely common and very easy to do. Fortunately, repairing this damage is relatively simple too. This guide shows you how to replace the screen on your iPhone 3G or 3GS. With the right iPhone parts and the right iPhone repair tools your iPhone could look like new in under 5 minutes.

 

iPhone 3G Screws

 

  • At the bottom of the iphone, either side of the dock connector you will see two screws. Using a small philips screwdriver remove these two screws.

 

 

 

iPhone 3G Screen Suction Cup

  • Press the suction cup onto the iphone screen just. It is best to place it near the bottom end of the iphone screen, just above the home button. Using the pull ring on the suction cup, pull up the screen. The iphone screen is fitted tightly into the iphone as there is a rubber gasket around the screen. This will require some force.

 

 

 

iPhone Screen at 45 degree angle

 

 

  • When you have managed to pull up the bottom section of theiphone screen away from the iphone, slowly rotate the touch screen to an angle of about 45 degrees. This is because there are three cables at the top of the screen that are still connected to the iphones motherboard.

 

 

 

 

  • Whilst holding the iphone screen at 45 degrees, unplug the ribbon connector labelled “1″. You can use a small flathead screwdriver or plastic spudger to do this. The cable is pushed into the connector on the board. You will just need to lift it up from the connector.
  • In a similar manner unplug the ribbon cable labelled “2″ from the iphone circuit board.

 

 

 

iPhone 3G Screen Cable 3

 

  • The third and final iphone screen cable uses a different type of connector. Special care should be taken when disconnecting this cable. There is a small DELICATE tab on the connector. This should be lifted up so that is rotated 90 degrees. This unlocks the cable and allows it to be slid out of the connector easily. It is vital that this tab is vertical when removing or reinserting the cable.

 

 

 

iPhone 3G Screen Assembly

  • The LCD and glass screen assembly is now completely free from the iphone.

 

 

  •  Remove one Phillps head screw from the top right hand corner of the touch screen assembly.

 

 

  • Now unscrew the two screws from the right hand side of the assembly. There is a thin strip of black tape along the edge of the screen. Gently peel this away and put it to the side

 

 

 

 

 

  • Next, remove the three screws on the other side of the screen assembly.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Insert one of the plastic spudgers in between the metal rails at the side of the screen and gently lift up the LCD screen. Remove the LCD screen and you are now left with the glass touch screen assembly. This is the part you will buy from us.

To install the new touch screen, simply follow the repair steps backwards.
