Einleitung

Use this guide shows to remove and replace the battery in the iPhone SE 2022.

This guide was performed on the A2783 (international) model.

If your battery is swollen, take appropriate precautions.

For your safety, 'discharge your battery below 25%' before disassembling your device. This reduces the risk of fire if the battery is accidentally damaged during the repair.

Note: This guide instructs you to fully detach the display assembly; this is intended to prevent accidental damage to the display cables. If you feel comfortable removing the battery without putting undue strain on the display cables, you can skip the steps for detaching the display. Additionally, while it’s possible to remove the adhesive strips securing the battery as soon as you open the phone, this guide recommends first removing the Taptic Engine. Doing so reduces the risk of breaking the lower adhesive strips accidentally, either by snagging them on the Taptic Engine, or by pulling the strips at too sharp of an angle.

If you do not replace the adhesive seals when reassembling, your device will function normally, but will most likely lose its water protection.

You’ll need replacement adhesive to reattach components when reassembling the device.

    • Open the phone by swinging the display up from the left side, like the back cover of a book.

    • Don't try to fully separate the display from the phone assembly yet, as several fragile ribbon cables still connect it to the logic board.

    • Lean the display against something to keep it propped up while you're working on the phone.

    • Remove the four Phillips screws securing the lower display cable bracket:

    • Two 1.2 mm-long screws

    • Two 2.8 mm-long screws

    • Throughout this guide, keep careful track of your screws so that each one goes back where it came from during reassembly. Installing a screw in the wrong place can cause permanent damage.

    • Use a pair of tweezers to remove the Lightning connector bracket.

  20. iPhone SE 2022 Battery Replacement, Loosen the Wi-Fi diversity antenna flex cable: Schritt 21, Bild 1 von 3 iPhone SE 2022 Battery Replacement, Loosen the Wi-Fi diversity antenna flex cable: Schritt 21, Bild 2 von 3 iPhone SE 2022 Battery Replacement, Loosen the Wi-Fi diversity antenna flex cable: Schritt 21, Bild 3 von 3
    • Carefully slide an opening pick between the antenna flex cable and the top of the speaker.

    • This portion of the flex cable is lightly adhered to the speaker. If you're struggling to separate the cable from the speaker, apply a little heat from an iOpener or hair dryer to soften the adhesive. This will make it easier to separate the flex cable safely.

  21. iPhone SE 2022 Battery Replacement, Disconnect the Wi-Fi diversity antenna: Schritt 22, Bild 1 von 2 iPhone SE 2022 Battery Replacement, Disconnect the Wi-Fi diversity antenna: Schritt 22, Bild 2 von 2
    • Use the pointed end of a spudger to disconnect the Wi-Fi diversity antenna by prying its connector straight up from its socket.

    • The socket of this connector sits loosely between the speaker and the Taptic Engine and it's a bit fiddly to disconnect the cable. To make the disconnection easier, you can use an opening pick to hold down the connector socket during this procedure.

    • Reconnecting this cable can be tricky. Make it easier by using tweezers to hold the flex cable so the connector aligns with its socket. Then, gently press straight down on the connector with the flat of your spudger until it clicks into place.

  22. iPhone SE 2022 Battery Replacement: Schritt 23, Bild 1 von 2 iPhone SE 2022 Battery Replacement: Schritt 23, Bild 2 von 2

    • Use a pair of tweezers to carefully remove the Taptic Engine.

  28. iPhone SE 2022 Battery Replacement, Battery stretch-release adhesive: Schritt 30, Bild 1 von 1
    • The iPhone's battery is secured by four pieces of stretch-release adhesive—two at the top, and two at the bottom.

    • Each piece of adhesive has a black pull-tab at the end, which is lightly adhered to the front surface or sometime only to the short edge of the battery.

  29. iPhone SE 2022 Battery Replacement, Peel off the battery pull-tab: Schritt 31, Bild 1 von 3 iPhone SE 2022 Battery Replacement, Peel off the battery pull-tab: Schritt 31, Bild 2 von 3 iPhone SE 2022 Battery Replacement, Peel off the battery pull-tab: Schritt 31, Bild 3 von 3
    • Take care not to puncture or bend the battery with your tool—a punctured or bent battery may leak dangerous chemicals or cause a fire. If possible, use your fingernails or blunt tweezers. Only use pointed tweezers if you can't manage to peel off the adhesive with another tool.

    • Peel back the first battery adhesive tab from the bottom right edge of the battery.

  30. iPhone SE 2022 Battery Replacement, Remove the stretch-release adhesive: Schritt 32, Bild 1 von 2 iPhone SE 2022 Battery Replacement, Remove the stretch-release adhesive: Schritt 32, Bild 2 von 2
    • Grab the first pull tab with your fingers or blunt nosed tweezers and slowly pull it away from the battery, toward the bottom of the iPhone.

    • Pull hard enough to maintain tension on the strip, but don't force it. Give it plenty of time to stretch and un-stick from under the battery.

    • Don't press down on the battery. Hold the iPhone firmly by its sides.

    • Keep the strip flat and unwrinkled. Try to pull evenly on the whole strip, rather than pulling mainly in the middle or on one side.

    • Pull at a low angle so the strip doesn't snag on the edge of the battery.

    • The strip is less likely to tear if you use a combination of pulling and then reeling the strip around your tweezers. Slowly repeat this procedure until the strip is removed.

    • If the adhesive strip breaks off, try to retrieve it using your fingers or blunt tweezers, and continue pulling—but do not pry under the battery.

    • If any of the adhesive strips break off underneath the battery and can't be retrieved, try to remove the other strips, and then proceed as instructed below.

  31. iPhone SE 2022 Battery Replacement: Schritt 33, Bild 1 von 3 iPhone SE 2022 Battery Replacement: Schritt 33, Bild 2 von 3 iPhone SE 2022 Battery Replacement: Schritt 33, Bild 3 von 3
    • Grab the three other pull-tabs with your fingers or blunt nosed tweezers and pull them away from the battery, toward the bottom of the iPhone.

    • Follow the same procedure as with the previous strip: don't press down on the battery, keep the strip flat and unwrinkled, and pull at a low angle.

    • If the adhesive strip breaks off, try to retrieve it using your fingers or blunt tweezers, and continue pulling—but do not pry under the battery.

    • If the adhesive breaks off underneath the battery and can't be retrieved, continue with the next step.

  32. iPhone SE 2022 Battery Replacement, If the adhesive strips broke off: Schritt 34, Bild 1 von 3 iPhone SE 2022 Battery Replacement, If the adhesive strips broke off: Schritt 34, Bild 2 von 3 iPhone SE 2022 Battery Replacement, If the adhesive strips broke off: Schritt 34, Bild 3 von 3
    • If any of the adhesive strips broke off and the battery remains stuck to the rear case, remove it by adding a few drops of isopropyl alcohol (90% or greater) underneath the battery near the stuck strip(s).

    • Wait about one minute for the alcohol solution to weaken the adhesive.

    • Use an opening pick or the flat end of a spudger to gently lift the battery.

    • Don't try to forcefully lever the battery out. If needed, apply a few more drops of alcohol to further weaken the adhesive. Never deform or puncture the battery with your pry tool.

  33. iPhone SE 2022 Battery Replacement: Schritt 35, Bild 1 von 3 iPhone SE 2022 Battery Replacement: Schritt 35, Bild 2 von 3 iPhone SE 2022 Battery Replacement: Schritt 35, Bild 3 von 3
    • If you don't have any high concentration (over 90%) isopropyl alcohol at hand you can prepare an iOpener and apply it to the rear glass for at least three minutes to loosen the stretch-release adhesive underneath the battery.

    • Insert a plastic card underneath the bottom edge of the battery.

    • Slide the plastic card along the edge of the battery to separate it from the rear case and to cut the adhesive.

    • Use your plastic card to carefully pry up the battery.

  34. iPhone SE 2022 Battery Replacement, Remove the battery: Schritt 36, Bild 1 von 3 iPhone SE 2022 Battery Replacement, Remove the battery: Schritt 36, Bild 2 von 3 iPhone SE 2022 Battery Replacement, Remove the battery: Schritt 36, Bild 3 von 3
    • Remove the battery.

    • If there's any alcohol solution remaining in the phone, carefully wipe it off with a coffee filter or lint-free cloth or allow it to air dry before installing your new battery.

    • If your new battery didn't come with adhesive preinstalled, refer to this guide for help replacing the adhesive strips.

    • Perform a force restart after reassembly. This can prevent several issues and simplify troubleshooting.

Abschluss

If possible, turn on your device and test your repair before installing new adhesive and resealing.

Compare your new replacement part to the original part—you may need to transfer remaining components or remove adhesive backings from the new part before installing.

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order. During reassembly apply new adhesive where necessary after cleaning the relevant areas with isopropyl alcohol (>90%).

For optimal performance, calibrate your newly installed battery after completing this guide.

Take your e-waste to an R2 or e-Stewards certified recycler.

Repair didn’t go as planned? Try some basic troubleshooting, or ask our Answers community for help.
