What you need to know if the screen needs to be changed

If the touch stops working or is erratic and or the display has black blobs on the screen means the touch and the screen needs to be changed as both parts are glued together by the manufacturer

Step 1 need good equipment

Before you begin, discharge your iPhone battery below 25%. A charged lithium-ion battery can catch fire and/or explode if accidentally punctured.
  • .
  • Power off your iPhone before beginning disassembly.
  • Remove the two 6.9 mm-long pentalobe screws at the bottom edge of the iPhone.
  • If the screws are stripped or damaged, replace the screws.
  • Opening the iPhone’s display will compromise its waterproof seals. Have replacement seals ready before you proceed past this step, or take care to avoid liquid exposure if you reassemble your iPhone without replacing the seals.

Step 2 Tape over any cracks

  • If your iPhone has a cracked screen, keep further breakage contained and prevent bodily harm during your repair by taping over the glass.
  • Lay overlapping strips of packing tape over the iPhone’s display until the whole face is covered.
  • This will keep glass shards contained and provide structural integrity when prying and lifting the display.
  • Wear safety glasses to protect your eyes from any glass shaken free during the repair.
  • If the broken glass makes it difficult to get a suction cup to stick in the next few steps, try folding a strong piece of tape (such as duct tape) into a handle and lifting the display with that instead.

Step 3

  • The next two steps demonstrate the right tools that we recommend for anyone doing frequent repairs. 
  • Position the suction cups near the bottom edge of the iPhone—one on the front, and one on the back.
  • Press both suction cups firmly into place.
  • If your display or back glass is badly cracked, covering it with a layer of clear packing tape may allow the suction cups to adhere. The iSclack also includes two pieces of tape for this purpose.

Step 5

Insert an opening pick into the gap.

Step 6

If using a single suction handle, apply it to the bottom edge of the phone, while avoiding the curved portion of the glass.
  • If using a single suction handle, apply it to the bottom edge of the phone, while avoiding the curved portion of the glass.
  • If your display is badly cracked, covering it with a layer of clear packing tape may allow the suction cup to adhere. Alternatively, very strong tape may be used instead of the suction cup. If all else fails, you can superglue the suction cup to the broken screen.
  • Hold onto your iPhone securely to slightly separate the screen from the rear case of the phone.
  • Don’t try to completely separate the screen; a small opening along the bottom edge is all you need.
  • Insert an opening pick into the gap.
  • Skip the next two steps.

Step 7

Pull up on the suction cup with firm, constant pressure to create a slight gap between the front panel and rear case.
  • Pull up on the suction cup with firm, constant pressure to create a slight gap between the front panel and rear case.
  • Insert an opening pick into the gap.
  • The watertight adhesive holding the display in place is very strong; creating this initial gap takes a significant amount of force. If you’re having a hard time opening a gap, apply more heat, and gently rock the screen up and down to weaken the adhesive until you create enough of a gap to insert your tool.

Step 8

  • Slide the opening pick around the lower left corner and up the left edge of the iPhone, slicing through the adhesive holding the display in place.
  • Don’t insert the opening pick too far into the iPhone, or you may cause damage to internal components.

Step 9

Re-insert your pick at the bottom edge of the iPhone, and slide it up the right side to continue separating the adhesive.
  • Re-insert your pick at the bottom edge of the iPhone, and slide it up the right side to continue separating the adhesive.
  • Don’t insert the pick very far, or you may damage the display cables along this side of the iPhone. Insert it only a few millimeters, or about the width of the

Step 10

  • The top edge of the display is secured with both glue and clips.
  • Slide the opening pick around the top corner of the display, while gently pulling or wiggling the display down in the direction of the Lightning port.
  • The clips will break if you use too much force. Work carefully and be patient.
  • Again, don’t insert the pick more than a few millimeters—about the width of the display bezel—or you may damage the front panel sensor array.
  • Slide the pick to the opposite corner and cut any remaining adhesive securing the display

Step 11

  • Pull on the small nub on the suction cup to remove it from the front panel.
  • If you used an iSclack and it’s still affixed to the iPhone, remove it now.

Step 12

Don't try to fully separate the display yet, as several fragile ribbon cables still connect it to the iPhone's logic board.
  • Open the iPhone by swinging the display up from the left side, like the back cover of a book.
  • Don’t try to fully separate the display yet, as several fragile ribbon cables still connect it to the iPhone’s logic board.
  • As pictured, make sure the frame comes off with display and doesn’t get stuck in the device.
  • Lean the display against something to keep it propped up while you’re working on the phone.
  • During reassembly, lay the display in position, align the clips along the top edge, and carefully press the top edge into place before snapping the rest of the display down. If it doesn’t click easily into place, check the condition of the clips around the perimeter of the display and make sure they aren’t bent.

Step 13 Display Assembly

  • Remove screws securing the logic board connector bracket, of the following lengths:

Step 14

Remove the bracket.
  • Remove the bracket.
  • The bracket may be lightly adhered in place. Lift gently but firmly to separate it.
  • During reassembly, this is a good point to power on your iPhone and test all functions before you seal the display in place. Be sure to power your iPhone back down completely before you continue working.

Step 15

  • Use the point of a spudger or a clean fingernail to pry the battery connector up from its socket on the logic board.
  • Try not to damage the black silicone seal surrounding this and other board connections. These seals provide extra protection against water and dust intrusion.
  • Bend the connector slightly away from the logic board to prevent it from accidentally making contact with the socket and providing power to the phone during your repair.

Step 16

  • Use the point of a spudger or a fingernail to disconnect the front panel sensor assembly connector.

Step 17

  • Use the point of a spudger or a fingernail to disconnect the OLED panel cable connector.
  • To re-attach press connectors like this one, carefully align and press down on one side until it clicks into place, then repeat on the other side. Do not press down on the middle. If the connector is misaligned, the pins can bend, causing permanent damage.

Step 18

  • Use the point of a spudger to pry the digitizer cable connector up from its socket.
  • This connector’s recessed location makes it tricky to reconnect. Take your time and align it carefully, then gently press it into place with your fingertip—first one side, then the other. You should feel it click into place.
  • If any part of your screen doesn’t respond to touch after your repair, disconnect the battery and then re-seat this connector, making sure it clicks fully into place and that there’s no dust or other obstruction in the socket.

Step 19

Carefully lift the cable until the adhesive separates.
  • The front panel sensor assembly flex cable is lightly adhered in place.
  • Carefully lift the cable until the adhesive separates.

Step 20

Remove the display assembly.
  • Remove the display assembly.
  • During reassembly, pause here if you wish to replace the waterproof adhesive around the edges of the display.

Step 21 Earpiece Speaker and Front Sensor Assembly

  • Remove the screw on the back of the display assembly, near the infrared camera port.

Step 22

Beneath the screw you just removed lies a small metal grounding clip. If it didn't already come out along with the screw, remove it now.
  • Beneath the screw you just removed lies a small metal grounding clip. If it didn’t already come out along with the screw, remove it now.
  • During reassembly, orient the clip as shown. Hold the clip in position while you install and tighten the screw.

Step 23

Remove two more Y000 screws securing the speaker/sensor assembly:
  • Remove screws securing the speaker/sensor assembly:

Step 24

  • The earpiece speaker is lightly adhered in place.
  • Using a spudger, gently pry under the top edge of the speaker assembly, and flip it over—down and away from the top edge of the display.
  • The speaker remains attached via a very thin flex cable. Be careful not to strain or damage the cable.

Step 25

  • Use a hairdryer or heat gun or prepare an iOpener and apply it to the top front of the display for about a minute, in order to soften the adhesive securing the sensors.

Step 26

Carefully slide the flat edge of your spudger underneath the flex cable below the microphone.
  • Carefully slide the flat edge of your spudger underneath the flex cable below the microphone.
  • Twist gently to separate the microphone, while being careful not to strain or damage the flex cable.
  • If needed, use the point of the spudger to finish separating the microphone from its notch in the front panel.

Step 27

Working left to right, slide an opening pick beneath the flex cable and underneath the proximity sensor + flood illuminator module.
  • Working left to right, slide an opening pick beneath the flex cable and underneath the proximity sensor + flood illuminator module.
  • Gently wiggle and lift to separate the module from its notch in the front panel.
  • It’s helpful to lift and hold the speaker out of the way for access. Just be careful not to pull on the thin flex cable while you work.

Step 28

Use tweezers to wiggle the ambient light sensor and lift it from its notch in the display.
  • Use tweezers to wiggle the ambient light sensor and lift it from its notch in the display.
  • The sensor remains attached to the rest of the sensor assembly via a very thin flex cable. Be careful not to strain or damage the cable.

Step 29

If you successfully removed the entire ambient light sensor, as shown in the first photo, continue to the next step below.

  • If you successfully removed the entire ambient light sensor, as shown in the first photo, continue to the next step below.
  • If the white diffuser strip detached and remains embedded in the display, as shown in the second photo, you will need to carefully lever it out along the top edge using a thin blade or pry tool. Re-applying heat first may make this task a bit easier.
  • During reassembly, install the diffuser into the display first, making sure it faces the right direction (the front-facing side is shown in the first image, and the rear-facing side is shown in the third).
  • Then, set the ambient light sensor on top of the diffuser. You will need to hold the sensor in position while installing the screws securing the earpiece/sensor assembly. Once the screws are tightened, the sensor will stay in place and work normally.

Step 30

Remove the earpiece speaker and front sensor assembly.
  • Remove the earpiece speaker and front sensor assembly.
  • During reassembly, check the position of the black plastic module containing these components:
  • Proximity sensor
  • Flood illuminator
  • The module must be positioned so that these components are not obstructed by any adhesive.

Tips to avoid breaking your screen

GadgetsFix 3 simple tips on avoiding damage to your phone and data.

1 Use a case that protects the front and back on phone which is made of glass 1-2ml.

A bling case looks good but is purely cosmetic. It’s like driving a car without a bumper bar. A bling case looks good but does not protect your phone. Our bumper cushions the fall with a soft rubbery silicone case which is clear, stylish with impact protection.

2 Always use a reputable repair center as some companies subsidize the repair while removing internal parts from your phone while wiping your data.

3 Gadgets fix repair your phone within an hour depending on complications or parts availability and offer a warranty on repairs and protect your data.
