Today we are going to take apart an iPhone I am going to show you how to take off and replace the screen in 3 minutes to start off, you grab your little star screwdriver, and there are two screws right next to the charging port. So unscrew each of those. It is the same size of screw driver that you would use with your iPhone 4 or 4s. Once those are out, Grab a little suction cup. The bigger the suction cup the better. And then just pry up on the bottom of the screen. In hindsight I probably should have used a plastic tool… So keep that in mind. There are ribbon cables up along the top. So be very careful when you are pulling it away. Because if you damage those ribbon cables (Especially on your new screen) You are going to have some problems. There are three little screws that you have to take out right here to unplug the ribbon cables from the phone and I’ll show you those. This little metal plate comes right off as soon as you get the three little screws undone. Doing the iPhone 5 screen is MUCH easier than doing the iPhone 4 or 4s screen. to replace those screens you have to undo about 30 screws The little bracket just slid right off… As far as the flex cables go, you can just pop them off with your pry tool They are just like little snaps. Similar to Legos. So there are 2 on top, and 1 underneath. And that releases the screen! Now get rid of your old screen, and put your new screen on. Grab each little flex cable, just like you would a Lego, and press them down and snap them in place. Once I got them all placed down, I used my finger to give them one little more push to make sure they
are all connected. Keep in mind that the screws are also
different sizes the two bottom screw the same size but
the top screw is a little bit longer. (I am going to speed this up just a bit because the screws were hard to get into place.) There you go! When you put the screen back down, make sure to slide the top in first. Then you can slide your hands down the slide and clip the rest of the screen into place. After you are done and the screen is in place, you can put the bottom two star screws in; Pentalobe screws. (Check the video description for parts and tools.) And there you go!
