Tools You Will Need
Before you start taking apart your iPhone, you need to ensure you have all the necessary tools. You will need a pentalobe screwdriver, a Phillips screwdriver, a spudger tool, a suction cup, and a plastic opening tool.
Step 1: Turn Off Your iPhone
Before you start taking apart your iPhone, turn it off completely to avoid any damage.
Step 2: Remove the Pentalobe Screws
Use the pentalobe screwdriver to remove the two screws at the bottom of your iPhone.
Step 3: Use the Suction Cup
Place the suction cup on the bottom of your iPhone, just above the home button. Pull up gently on the suction cup to create a small gap between the screen and the rear case.
Step 4: Use the Plastic Opening Tool
Insert the plastic opening tool into the gap you created with the suction cup. Slide the tool around the edges of the iPhone to loosen the adhesive.
Step 5: Lift the Screen
Once the adhesive is loosened, use the suction cup to lift the screen slightly. Be careful not to lift it too much as there are still cables attaching the screen to the iPhone.
Step 6: Disconnect the Cables
Use the spudger tool to disconnect the cables attaching the screen to the iPhone. Gently lift the connectors to remove them.
Step 7: Remove the Rear Case
Once the screen is disconnected, you can remove the rear case by unscrewing the Phillips screws holding it in place.
