How to change the iPhone battery

Sooner or later, there comes a time when the iPhone no longer holds the charge as before. As a rule, this is due to iOS fault – it becomes more powerful and requires more resources.

But it often happens that the battery simply lost in the tank. He is already physically unable to work as much as he worked before.

Then it’s time to change the iPhone battery.

Tell you how to do it at home. For example, iPhone 6s.

How to change the iPhone battery

The replacement technology may vary slightly depending on the iPhone model

ATTENTION . Do all of these procedures at your own risk. If you are not sure about something, it is better to contact a specialist.

We need:

• Cross-shaped (1.2 mm, 2.2 mm, 2.8 mm, 2.9 mm) and pentagonal 3.4 mm screwdrivers
• Suction cup
• Dielectric blade or mediator
• Tweezers
• New battery for iPhone:

Step-by-step instruction

Step 1 . Turn off the smartphone, waiting for 10 seconds. We are spinning the bottom two 3.4 mm screws. The lower part of the display will rise slightly.

Step 2 . Secure the suction cup in the lower left corner of the smartphone. We take the mediator or the scapula, gently tuck the bottom of the display.

Step 3 . Gently pull the suction cup upwards, while paralleling the sides of the device with a mediator or dielectric blade. The display will start to depart with characteristic clicks.


Important! Pull carefully, without sharp movements, so as not to damage the smartphone.

On models iPhone 6s and above, the display is glued. It is necessary to gently move the mediator or a thin scalpel along the display, as if cutting it off.

Step 4 . Having freed all the slots of the display, open the iPhone at an angle of up to 90 degrees.

On the iPhone 7 and above, the lid opens sideways.

Step 5 . Unscrew the two screws securing the battery cable holder: 2.9 mm screw – red, 2.2 mm screw – yellow.

Step 6 . Use a pair of tweezers to remove the plate.

Step 7 . Using a dielectric blade, disconnect the battery cable. Take the cable far away from the connector.

Step 8 . Remove the four screws: three 1.2 mm screws – red, one 2.8 mm screw – yellow.

Step 9 . Remove the LCD holder.

Step 10 . Disconnect the front camera cable.

Step 11 . Disconnect the flex cable of the touch screen and the data transfer cable. All. Now you can put the display aside.

Step 12 . Use the blunt tweezers to bend the ends of the two adhesive strips on the bottom edge of the battery.

Please note that tweezers should not have sharp ends. Otherwise, you risk piercing the lithium-ion battery. And from it will emerge dangerous substances.

If you want to make your life easier, remove the Taptic Engine module by unscrewing the 2 screws securing it.Then the scotch will not be ripped off for anything and it’s much easier to pull it out.


Step 13 . Gently pull one sticky strip toward the bottom of the iPhone. Pull until complete release. So that the strip does not tear.

If the strip is still torn:

It is necessary to carefully tuck the battery in by a bank card, trying not to damage the outer shell and controller, which is located at the bottom of the battery. Fit only on the side , where there are no buttons.

Step 14 . Carry out a similar procedure with another strip. Do not forget to hold the battery.

IMPORTANT . Before attaching the battery back, you need to connect the display to the phone, connect the battery and check its functionality. And only then continue the process of reverse assembly.

When re-installing the battery, it is necessary to stick the scotch (comes with batteries) to the battery first, and then glue it to the smartphone.

In the case of the iPhone 6s Plus, it is necessary to fold all three strips into one bundle and pull them simultaneously. Pull so that they do not touch the components of the smartphone, otherwise you risk tearing them apart.

Step 15 . Reverse the iPhone assembly.

When assembling from the model 6s and above, it is necessary to glue the dust / moisture-proof sizing. .

Actually, that’s it. You could successfully (or not) replace the iPhone battery.

If it’s scary

Of course, with self-assembly there is a certain risk. You can damage both the battery itself and the adjacent components of the iPhone. This, in turn, will lead to the inoperability of the smartphone. And then certainly you have to contact the service center.
