Einleitung

In dieser Anleitung wird gezeigt, wie du das defekte Display deines iPhone 7 ersetzen kannst. Die Anleitung gilt nur für das komplette Ersatzteil, das mit der Fronteinheit, dem Ohrhörer-Lautsprecher und der EMI-Abschirmung ausgestattet ist, um die Reparatur zu vereinfachen.

Du musst nur noch das alte Display ausbauen und den Home Button auf das Ersatzteil übertragen. So funktioniert die Touch-ID auch weiterhin.

Einführungsvideo

  1. Vor dem Beginn sollte der Ladestand des iPhones unter 25 % liegen. Ein geladener Lithium-Ionen Akku kann bei Beschädigung brennen oder explodieren.
    • Vor dem Beginn sollte der Ladestand des iPhones unter 25 % liegen. Ein geladener Lithium-Ionen Akku kann bei Beschädigung brennen oder explodieren.

    • Schalte das iPhone aus, bevor du es auseinandernimmst.

    • Entferne die zwei 3,4 mm Pentalobe Schrauben an der Unterkante des iPhones.

    • Beim Öffnen des Gerätes werden die Dichtungen für den Spritzwasserschutz beschädigt. Halte Ersatzdichtungen bereit, bevor du fortfährst. Wenn du diese nicht ersetzt, ist dein Gerät nach der Reparatur nicht mehr gegen Spritzwasser geschützt.

    Can anyone confirm 7/7P's pentalobe screws have a ring of seal near the screw head?

    Cooper Chase - Antwort

    Confirmed, the screws have a black ring seal around the head.

  2. Wenn dein Displayglas zerbrochen ist, dann solltest du weiteren Bruch verhindern und Verletzungen während der Reparatur vermeiden, indem du das Glas mit Klebeband abklebst. Klebe durchsichtiges Klebeband in überlappenden Streifen über das Display des iPhones, bis die ganze Oberseite bedeckt ist. Dieses Verfahren hält Glasscherben fest und sorgt dafür, dass die Struktur erhalten bleibt, wenn du am Display hebelst und es hochhebst.

    • Ziehe eine Schutzbrille auf, um deine Augen vor Glassplittern zu schützen, die bei der Reparatur herausspringen können.

    • Wenn die Scheibe so zerbrochen ist, dass ein Saugheber bei den nächsten Schritten zu schwierig anzusetzen ist, dann solltest du versuchen ein Stück sehr starken Klebebands (etwa Panzerband) zu einem Handgriff zusammenzukleben und damit die Glasscheibe anzuheben.

    In case of broken glass you can make the suction cup much more effective by covering the glass with a broad piece of translucent tape which eliminate air leakage through cracks in the glass.

    I’ve used hot glue on low setting to remove all types of crystals. The hot glue will release with a little iso alcohol. No damage to glass or plastic faced crystals or screens. Use a narrow piece of wood as a prying handle.

    Emilio Gonzalez - Antwort

    I recently had issues with removing the glass with the suction cup. I have done this many times with older generation iPhones but this time the glass seemed sealed on quite solidly. I told myself that the last option would be to use the screwdriver tip. After all my attempts, I transitioned to the option of using the screwdriver tip. Surprisingly, it was the easiest thing ever. I placed the 1mm flathead screwdriver at the interface between the glass and the cover (normal start location) and pried up very gently. Voila, the glass came up and I can’t even notice any dents or scratches. It felt much easier than the suction cup technique. If the suction cup is giving you a hard time consider using that 1mm flathead.

    It is a process. I heated the lower area of the phone with a hair dryer on and off (1min each) about 3-4 times before I was able to get the provided tool in.

    Dan - Antwort

    I suggest using a hairdryer. I used the iOpener for maybe 30 mins to no avail. However, when I used the hairdryer the screen came of much quicker.

    Can a heat gun be used?

    Lee - Antwort

    Absolutely. Just don’t overdo it—the adhesive usually softens up pretty easily. If you are experienced with a heat gun, you’ll have no problem. (If you are inexperienced, it’s easy to cook the display or cause other damage.)

    If i use this process, will iphone 7 still be sealed, water/ splash resist after that?

    Marius Serban - Antwort

    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.

  5. Ziehe etwas am Saugnapf, bis sich eine kleine Lücke zwischen der Displayeinheit und dem Rückgehäuse bildet. Führe die flache Seite eines Spudgers in diese Lücke ein. Der wasserdichte Klebestreifen, welcher das Display in Position hält, ist sehr stark. Es kann viel Kraft brauchen, um diese erste kleine Lücke zu schaffen. Solltest du dabei Schwierigkeiten haben, wackle das Display etwas auf und ab, um den Klebestreifen zu schwächen, damit du den Spudger leichter einführen kannst.

    This was SO hard for me to do with the spudger. I couldn’t get a gap to insert it because my phone was so cracked (even though I used tape on the front) to get a solid seal with the suction cup. I ended up taking a VERY thin knife and inserting it straight down to make the initial break that allowed me to insert the spudger.

    jessica harlow - Antwort

    I’ve given up using a plastic spudger to try to open any of these phones. I use a metal one with a flat base and a very sharp end…close to a razor. As long as I’m careful, it won’t slip and scratch the base. It’s much easier than using these plastic spudgers.

    mcr4u2 -

    I confirm that the plastic spudger it’s not the best tool for this operation. I suggest to use a larger metal tool like a “Jimmy” or “iSesamo open tool” (I used the first one)

    Im trying to get the screen off right now and my phone is not cracked and its still a pain

    Jordon Johnson - Antwort

    Using a blow dryer was extremely helpful and using the suction cup towards one of the lower edges was also helpful

    Jordon Johnson - Antwort

    This is not working for me. How long does the heat need to be applied? Still trying right now…. =/

    Chris Gallego - Antwort

    Apply hair dryer for at least 1 minute. I inserted the tip end of a thin mini screwdriver and with some force, pryed it open and inserted my plastic spudger to continue the separation process. It worked, just be patient.

    Please wear protective glasses! My iPhone glass was severely cracked, when separating the glass a corner area of broken glass exploded in my face. Apply transparent tape over the broken glass to contain the shards.

    amberron - Antwort

    I second Jessica’s January 8 comment.  I just finished a battery replacement on my iPhone 7 and this step was the most nerve-wracking part.  I ended up using a sharper (but not razor-sharp) metal object to get this done with confidence (tried the spudger and guitar pick but not thin enough).  The tool I used was the exact duplicate of what iFixIt calls “iSesamo Opening Tool” in their tool selection.  I did the heat up with a hair dryer (after attempts with an iOpener hot pad) and the secret (as Jessica also noted)  was to not use the angle of attack shown in the pictures, but to push it in more vertically along the bottom edge while pulling up on the suction cup.  From there you can easily lever the tool to the lower angle-of-attack (as shown in the picture).  I actually used the metal tool for most of the perimeter as well, just don’t go deep (you don’t need to).  Notes: my display was intact, and I was able to pull up fairly hard with a glass screen protector still on it.

    Ted - Antwort

    This is frustrating. I heated the lower edge with a hair dryer for 1 min on high about 3-4 times. In between each heat cycle, I rocked the suction cup back and forth. I was eventually able to create significant space for the provided tool. This takes a lot of patience. Once the space was created, it was very easy to remove the screen.

    Dan - Antwort

    use a fingernail, then the blue tool, then the spudger

    Therese Peffer - Antwort

    The iOpener worked just fine for me. Had to keep it on for a few minutes. I also was able to get the suction cup seal right close to the edge, over top of the home button for added leverage. Used the blue tool and transitioned to the spudger. Slow, steady pressure…and patience. ;)

    johnhall918 - Antwort

    Unable to open an iPhone 7 display assembly. Used gell pack at 150 degrees F. The phone wouldn’t budge when I used the iFixit suction cut. Part of the problem is that the cup doesn’t adhere for long before it looses suction. I suspect it would work better on unbroken glass, but that doesn’t help me now. After spending a lot of time at this, I changed heating methods to a hot air heater. I raised the temp of the bottom end of the phone to, ultimately, 175 degrees, and used a variety of tools to try to pry the glass apart enough to get a spudger (or anything) in, but it didn’t even lift enough for a double-edged razor blade to get in. I’ve been trying this for hours now, and about to give up and throw a lot more money at this to have a service perform the work. I figured that 175 was as high as I should need to go to soften the adhesive without damaging the electronics. Should I have gone higher? I see no mention of measured temps in any instructions or comments.

    ted - Antwort

    Have you tried applying tape to the broken screen? This will help a lot with keeping the suction cup on it.

    Christian Groothuis -

    It doesn’t need to get very hot; pulling up on the display is mainly what does the trick. Make sure the two pentalobe screws have been removed and then try the tricks in this step. If all else fails, superglue the suction cup to your display and let it cure, and then pull. Keep in mind you only need a tiny gap to insert a plastic pick and start cutting the adhesive. Good luck!

    Jeff Suovanen -

    Just a question. After this operation the impermeability function was compromitted?

    bentek86 - Antwort

    The trick I found, was to add packing tape right across the bottom over the home button then use hairdryer on the end, then suction cup on the very bottom and it lifted enough to get a gap. No one mentioned how it would be impossible to handle the phone after the hairdryer ;)

    Andrew Lansdowne - Antwort

    Didn’t have an iOpener and 60 seconds on a hairdryer wasn’t doing it for me. Still wouldn’t budge. I had to take a very sharp razor along the seam at the bottom between the speakers. It took about 20 passes for it to separate enough to get the spudger in. Make sure you keep the razor at a 90-45˚ angle and that it goes no more than 1-2mm into the phone. The bottom of the phone is metal, but the casing for the screen is plastic. So if you cut lower than a 45˚ (flat with the phone) you risk cutting into the casing. Apply light pressure when making the passes. I would just do the razor on the flat part on the bottom.

    Be VERY careful on this next step going up the right side of the phone. There is a ribbon cable 1/3 of the way up from the bottom that is very close to the edge. Do NOT use the blue triangle!!!! Just lightly rotate the spudger to get separation on the edge.

    The plastic clips mentioned are on the top of the screen being replaced… so not sure why it matters not to break them. Trick here was to pull the screen downwards to open a gap at the top and then insert as shown and raise to break the seal.

    Stephen Babbage - Antwort

    It’s the screwdriver bit that is the problem. I had the same issue with 2 Y000 bits not grabbing the screw properly. I fixed it by using a small 3 sided file to slightly grind the groves in the Y000 bit just a bit deeper. Then the bit worked like a charm on these screws.

    Jim Staples - Antwort

    Use Y000 on all 4. U have to be very sensitive on the 1.2mm screws. Put the bit in the screw, put the left pointing finger on top of the screwdriver and turn the driver carefully to the right until you feel a “bump”, thats the trick :-), then you are able to screw the screw out.

    Magne Eivindson - Antwort

    For me the key here was a LOT of downward pressure to ensure the Y000 bit caught in the screw. Not sure i can describe how much exactly, but is was significant. Otherwise the bit would not catch.

Not ideal, but works. I've tried applying a lot of pressure, using the tighten/ loosen method, but the heads have just got mashed… no wonder Samsung are now No1, sigh…

    jimpoolio - Antwort

    You need to be careful when just rotating the cover as you can accidentally slice through the two black antennas! You only need to nip them…As you can tell I have done this in the past :/

    Kyle Webb -

    The first, longer screw came out fine, but the other three wouldn’t budge, regardless of more/less pressure or a slight angle or anything. I finally filed down the tip of the Y000 bit ever so slightly, and then it worked. Hope this helps someone.

    Harmony Vine - Antwort

    Filing down the bit worked for me. The tip about putting an index finger on the end of the screwdriver handles and then turning gently until it clicks into place was very helpful! Using these 2 tips I didn't need much downward pressure. Screws are out in a few turns.

    Chris Bennett - Antwort

    If you can’t get the bit to grip the screw properly, you can use a little bit of the water-proof sealing between the bit and the screw. That worked for me. Hope this helps anyone.

    To be honest you don’t really need to disconnect the display cables in step 15 or 16 to get the battery out. Just keep the suction cup on the screen to keep it propped up and to give the cables some slack. The only reason to take these cables off is that it’s a pain to apply the replacement display adhesive with those cables in the way. If you’re not re-waterproofing your phone just leave these attached.

    Ryan Welborn - Antwort

    Using iFixit’s driver kit, I prefer a PH00 for this, which is larger than the PH000. If you think the PH000 is too big, something is wrong.

    Jeff Suovanen -

    I think part of the issue with the iFixit PH000 is that it is slightly too pointy. The PH00 fits better because the splines engage the slots of the screw before the point bottoms out. The PH000 tip bottoms out in the screw’s center point and the splines don’t engage as well. I have other PH000 tips that are more blunt nose and they work better than the iFixit bit.

    Is this the connector for the earpiece, as well? I did the screen replacement and everything worked, except now I can’t use my earpiece… I’m afraid I didn’t fully connect this particular portion.

    Victor Bui - Antwort

    @victorbui714 Correct, this is also the connector for the earpiece speaker. Check the flex cable carefully and make sure it wasn’t pinched or torn. Make sure the connector socket is clean (give it a blast with some compressed air if needed) and try reseating it. If that doesn’t help, you may want to remove the earpiece speaker and inspect the four springs on the back, and check that they’re intact and making good contact with the four circular pads on the flex cable. Give the pads a wipe with some IPA and try not to leave any skin oils on them. If none of that works, try replacing the entire flex cable/sensor assembly. Good luck!

    So I stripped the screw furthest to the left, how can i possibly remove it now? Can I just buy a new LCD shield and home bracket button and screw and will that work just fine on the new screen replacement? this stripped screw of mine is not coming out

    Bryan Ferrer - Antwort

    That should work, as long as you can still get the home button/sensor out without damage. For removing a stripped screw this size, I’d probably try supergluing it to the driver—or else just drill the top of the screw off and then remove the bracket, leaving the screw shaft embedded in the old display. Good luck!

Took them out and used them.. all good.

    Critter - Antwort

    My 7 had quite a bit of loctite holding these bad boys on. I stripped the one to the right of the home button and after using many “sentence enhancers” I was able to remove it using good tweezers and quite a bit of hand strength. I think that heating up the screws here is not an option because the cables lie underneath the plate and would probably get damaged from the amount of heat needed to loosen the loctite. Be patient here, and maybe have spare Y000 drivers because you may damage your driver getting these screws out.

    Henk - Antwort

    Hi all, I’m really hoping someone will be able to give me a hand here, so the 1.1mm screw on top of the home button is stripped, and absolutely refuses to get out. I have tried the superglue technique mentioned and am worried it may have even glued the screw to the bracket. The only solution I can think of is to bend the home button bracket on either side of the middle screw, and use the bracket itself to remove the screw from the home button. I have ordered a new home button bracket either way, does anybody have any other ideas? Should I even attempt what I am proposing?

    Thanks in Advance.

    It cannot be stressed enough that this is the one part of this repair that you can’t screw up. Anything else you’ll deal with during this repair can be easily replaced (The screen, and the sensor/microphone/camera assembly). Tearing this cable means an expensive trip to the apple store. or a very unhappy customer if you’re doing this for someone. Heat is your friend. I don’t even use a spudger or a guitar pick for this one, I use a new playing card to pull this up. Even with the card, you have to be careful. The edge of the playing card can nick the cable if you’re not careful to get it under the ribbon cable. If the adhesive isn’t soft enough for the card to get it up, apply more heat. Again, you can’t screw this step up. It’s all or nothing.

    Well, no visible damage but the home button won’t work. I contacted a local Apple Authorized Service Center to check options. Since I had personally replaced the screen assembly, they wouldn’t even look at it per Apple policy. They said they would jeopardize their Apple Authorization if they even looked at it. Seems like more of the “Right to Repair” problem to me. Frustrated, but at least I have the accesibility home button working.

    bandman - Antwort

    Make sure the home button screws aren’t overtightened; that often causes issues. If there’s any damage to the button cable, a repair shop with a skilled microsolderer can patch a new cable on and restore functionality. iPhone 7 home button not working after screen replacement? Worst case scenario, you can also buy a screen repair from Apple, and they’ll include a new home button. I am not a lawyer, but the response you’re describing from the AASP sounds way out of bounds. Good luck!

    Jeff Suovanen -

    Just keep in mind that this is a very delicate step that requires a lot of patience. the part is attached to the body of the phone so firmly and there is no gap to put the opening pick under. So the way I did it was applying a good amount of heat onto the part and not from behind. I did it constantly for 5 minutes, a few minutes at a time, then I pulled the connected up slightly (a little too much pressure on the pull and you will break the wire). Pull it constantly and If the heat has been enough to melt the adhesive, it should come off easily and slowly.

    @ghaycock If you’re replacing a screen, the home button will work fine as long as you carefully remove it from the old screen and transfer it to the new one, exactly as explained in the guide. The button itself can’t be replaced without help from Apple (which is why iFixit doesn’t sell home buttons for this model).

    Jeff Suovanen -

    One thing I don’t see mentioned is the replacement of the rubber gaskets that are on the pentalobe holes. The replacement screen did not come with these on it. I was able to remove them from the OEM screen, but there was no easy way to get them to adhere to the new screen. If they move just a little, you might not be able to properly thread the pentalobe screws. Worst case is that they fall into the body of the phone during this last step of re-assembly. At that point, you’ve already started to have the screen stuck to the adhesive, so you would need to redo the entire adhesive gasket.

    You can see the gaskets in this picture: https://d3nevzfk7ii3be.cloudfront.net/ig...

    Here they are near the new screen: https://drive.google.com/open?id=14FwpSB...

When putting the screen back on will the device loose it's water-resistant properties?

Joseph - Antwort

Wondering this too.

Draydan -

It will for sure lose it's water-resistant properties. So, please replace the water-resistant adhesive before assembly.

Jojo -

Yes, but you can buy a new replacement seal for a few bucks. However, it is extremely thin and very sticky so its almost impossible to do it right the first time (imagine placing a needle thin sized rubber band covered in glue around the tiny ledge you phone screen sits on). I would suggest you buy two because it is likely you’ll need a second shot at it…because if any part gets misplaced and sticks to the wrong spot, it will not come off, and that “sticky rubber band” turns into this horrible stringy tar/chewing gum ring that is impossible to manipulate…fair warning… it will most likely be pretty water resistant even if you don’t add a new seal to it… its not a waterproof phone in the first place :)

jaicdc -

Yes it will lose the water-resistant abilities. It is very hard to seal it back to it's original state.

Alec - Antwort

Is there any supplier that sells the original adhesive for the edge of the phone so we can make it better? Or do we have to just wing it with some cut double sided tape etc?

Grant Ormsby - Antwort

The short answer is yes, there are suppliers who carry the adhesive. It can be difficult to obtain and may be tempting to go for a replacement from eBay or somewhere similar, but I advise to steer clear of unverified vendors. If you can get one from iFixit, I strongly recommend that you use them - especially if you're only purchasing one for a DIY project. If iFixit doesn't have them, you can get these from Union Repair as one option. http://www.unionrepair.com/replacement-f...

Joshua -

We do offer the replacement adhesive if you need it—I wouldn't recommend trying to wing it. By the way, the phone will work fine without replacing the adhesive (it just won't be as waterproof), so if you don't have the adhesive on hand, it's perfectly okay to finish your repair and close up your iPhone, and then replace the adhesive at a later date.

Jeff Suovanen -

I am curious about the home button transfer? transfer from old cracked to new screen and finger print will work? also I have read online forums using 3rd party screens for gens i6/i6s/i7 and doing an iOS update will brick and or make the finger print scanner unusable? Can anyone confirm?

Thanks.

hawaii4vr - Antwort

The issue with the Home Button not functioning and "bricking" the device was not from 3rd party displays. It was from shops not transferring the Home Button to the new assembly. During restore or update the device would deliver Error 53. Apple has since modified iOS to not do this, so it is no longer the concern that it was. As long as there is not anything wrong with your Home Button, it will be fully functional on your device after the new display is installed.

Joshua -

Keep in mind that while you are safe using third party screens, using a non-original home button will result in losing TouchID functionality.

Evan Noronha -

That home button cable is a bit tricky. I came at it from the top side of the home button with the pointy end of my spudger, and managed to pull up all of the adhesive. otherwise, this was a pretty straight forward swap.

victor maia -

I’m sorry to hear that! From what it sounds, your replacement part is actually the LCD and digitizer, not the complete screen, which is listed in the parts section. The screen part comes with everything pre-installed for easy replacement, while the LCD and digitizer comes with nothing installed and requires much more disassembly.

Malik Adam - Antwort

Tip for anyone who is moving the home button to a replacement screen. The cable is stuck on the screen pretty good with adhesive, I found that an easy way to get it off is to use a very very small flathead screwdriver (I used the smallest one in the iFixit tool kit) and carefully pry the cable off starting where the little plastic pin pokes through the hole in the cable. Came right off and the adhesive was still stuck to the cable. Just don't puncture the cable.

Evan Smith - Antwort

STEP 9: WARNING IS STUPID.

WHO CARES if you break the plastic clips? You're replacing the screen which has NEW plastic clips.

STEP 14. DO NOT lay it down like an open book. The cables are likely to tear if you do this because they are very short and snug. I recommend placing a heavy object behind the screen to keep it propped up/open like a laptop screen.

STEP 15. CLEARLY IT IS NOT laying down like an open book. In fact not until step 19 does it look like it's laying flat like an open book.

To the above comments. Send it to Apple if you want the WATERPROOFING to stay intact. Of course you'll likely get a refurbished phone in return. Here's a novel idea. Don't get your phone (or any other electronics for that matter) wet.

paul bunions - Antwort

Thanks for the info. I was just thinking about Step 14 and if the cables would be long (or strong) enough. You answered my question ;-)

Clems -

You're right that broken clips might not matter if you're just replacing the screen—however, the warning in step 9 is necessary because this step (opening the phone) is a prerequisite for all iPhone repairs (not just the screen). I agree with you about the cables being too short in some cases to lay the display flat, and I've deleted the note about laying it down like an open book. Thanks for your comments!

I work in a phone repair shop. We have had an on/ off problem for the 7/7+. Sometimes if you unplug the camera from the board and attach it to the new screen then back to the board it will boot loop. So we've taken the precaution to not unplug it. Do you know if this is a software or hardware problem? If so, which part of the software/hardware should we be more careful about when repairing?

The only way to stop the boot loop is to unplug the FF camera which puts the customer out of a selfie camera and makes the repair redundant.

Sometimes--- there is a pressure point underneath the LCD on the right side of the screen when closing the iPhone 7 (where the bracket covers the cables under the LCD, not the proxy connector). It's been hit and miss. Some repairs can be done and there is no pressure point, then for others, it seems the chip is sitting on top of the metal bracket and causes a pressure point when closed. Has anyone else had this issue? What have you done to make sure it's not an issue 100% of the time?

aqnguyen87 - Antwort

The pressure point is because the chip is moved a little bit upwards to the phone when changing to a new screen. Try to relocate the chip 0,5mm-1mm further down on the screen and this will fix the pressure point occurring when closing the screen to the phone!

I am having issues with the home button swap.

One iPhone had hardware issues that made the phone basically useless (no service, ever, could not restore firmware from iTunes) this device had a perfect screen.

The other iPhone had a shattered screen.

So I am replacing the shattered screen with the screen from the other iPhone, and swapped the home buttons.

The phone with the now new (uncracked) screen doesn't recognize the home button at all. Nor does it tell me that I have the wrong home button when I purposely connect the wrong home button.

I took the same home button and put it with the other iPhone and the iPhone rejects it (point is, it detects the home button). The other iPhone doesn't even detect it.

I was just in one of those moods I’m sure most of us can relate to. Oh, and , excuse me while I do this….. AAAPPPPLLE!! Grrr

Does automatic brightness work for you after replacing the screen with the iFixit part? Mine was working properly with the original screen, but auto-brightness doesn’t seem to work with the iFixit replacement.

Salve ,

mi spiegate perché quando sostituisco il gruppo display e lo vado a rimontare mi rimane sollevato sulla parte dei flat?

è come se non entrasse, eppure sembra tutto ok e ben posizionato.

Grazie anticipatamente della risposta e complimenti per la guida.

Hi,

I swapped a broken Iphone 7 screen and everything seemed to work fine even fingerprint.. But the front camera did not work after the swap, so i installed a new one and a battery, and now camera still doesnt work, and there is a vertical black line in the screen. Someone knows what went wrong?

I have a strange problem. i had a iphone 7 with the audio ic problem, so got another working one with a cracked screen. I have just switched the board and button from the good one to the broken audio ic one. now fingerprint ID works fine, but i am getting no haptic at all from the button. the phone works fine. both phones had button haptic before the swap.

sorted it, tried reconnecting the cables, no joy. in the end i swapped over the taptic motor, and its fine now. I also swapped out them tri screws for normal + ones from all my spare parts.

Thank you!, Evan Noronha (and 8 other contributors). Using this guide, I was able to disassemble and assemble back the screen. I will keep the forum posted for any other problems.

If you tore the top ribbon cable for the camera and what not, can you stil replace the screen and it work?

Kate Godfrey - Antwort

Why are all of these “replacement” guides actually just disassembly guides? You always cut the instructions off halfway. This doesn’t show anyone how to replace anything, just how to remove the screen and other connected components. How much extra effort would it actually be for you to include the rest of the instructions? Like 5 more photos per guide?

Josh O'Brien - Antwort

I believe it’s possible to create your own iFixit guides.

I’ve never had an issue with this. I mean sure it’d be nice, but for such a prolific and constantly updated resource, I don’t see the point in complaining too much about it. I’ve never felt like they don’t give me enough to complete a repair.

Sam -

In terms of this particular guide, the only thing missing in my opinion is removing the front sensor flex cable, earpiece speaker and backplate, but since many displays come with those parts attached I can understand the exclusion. At the end of the day, a disassembly guide is all one really needs for these repairs since you can follow the instructions backwards to install the new part once the broken part is disassembled, so adding steps for that seems somewhat redundant.

Sam -

Is it possible to replace the display without the adhesive? Or is it absolutely necessary?

Bryan Young - Antwort

You can it just won’t have the water resistant seal that the adhesive provides

Anyone found a way of getting the 3 1.2mm screws out? (step 13) They just won’t budge, and I think I’ve stripped the heads… What now?

Stephen Babbage - Antwort

Excellent guide. Thank you very much

Larry Welch - Antwort

I replaced the screen using this guide, however now Apple Pay doesn't work. Has anyone else experienced this? Is there a fix?

Dave - Antwort

I’ve just replace my Girlfriends iPhone7 screen and now she doesn’t have an screen rotation. I may have got some of the screws mixed up. I read somewhere about a magnetic screw in the wrong place can cause this. Does anyone know which screw I might have got wrong?

Mike - Antwort

I just replaced my screen with an original one from an board fried iPhone. Now when on it says it won’t recognize the touch id and directly shows on screen the white button. I have checked twice and no clue why. Any help?

Juan Herrera - Antwort

Are y’all sure this fix guide is for the iPhone 7 because the screen in this guide has 3 ribbon cables 2 at the bottom and 1 at the top but the one I ordered only has 2 both being at the bottom so I thought they sent me the wrong one so I sent it back and ordered one from someone else and it had only 2 both being at the bottom so I’ve come to a conclusion that this guide is incorrect

jonathan whittington - Antwort

Nevermind I see it doesn’t have the front facing camera preinstalled

jonathan whittington -

The screen you ordered is a screen without the camera and the speaker. The third cable that you are looking for is that of the camera and speaker, which will need to be transferred from the original screen as well as the shield.

yvaneck - Antwort

I just ordered the correct one with the camera and speaker pre installed but what do you mean by the shield

jonathan whittington -

i just finished putting my new screen on but when i turned my phone on it said your home button may need service but i was sure not to over tighten the screws around the touch id sensor like it said not to… what do i do now???

awhitt23 - Antwort

Took my time with this one and the odds were in my favor….Nailed this slightly novice repair!!!!However I could have used the precut waterproof gasket ifix offers instead of the roll type ….

Bryant Trambaugh - Antwort

complete thanks to the cool ones at ifix…thanks yall

Bryant Trambaugh - Antwort

What exactly is meant by rocking the screen? I can’t lift this thing for the life of me.
