  • Peel up the orange tape securing the white antenna cable to the side of the iPhone.

Schritt 2  ¶ 

Use a spudger to disconnect the two antenna cables from the communications board. Apple used a small dab of glue on these connections, which may make removing the antenna connections harder.

Remove the following 3 screws:

Schritt 3  ¶ 

  • Remove the following 3 screws:

  • One Phillips #00 screw securing the logic board to the iPhone near the camera.

  • Two Phillips #00 screws, one on either corner of the logic board.

Schritt 4  ¶ 

Use a spudger to disconnect the camera connector.

Schritt 4  ¶ 

  • Use a spudger to disconnect the camera connector.

  • Lift the camera out of the iPhone.

Schritt 5  ¶ 

Working from the edge opposite the battery connectors, insert a spudger between the battery and the plastic frame and pry up on the battery. It is attached to the casing with an adhesive, but should slowly come free.

  • Working from the edge opposite the battery connectors, insert a spudger between the battery and the plastic frame and pry up on the battery. It is attached to the casing with an adhesive, but should slowly come free.

  • Leave the battery resting slightly out of its housing, but be sure not to put too much pressure on the battery wires as the solder joints break easily.

Schritt 6  ¶ 

Slide a spudger beneath the logic board on the side opposite the battery connector and pry up slightly. Don't lift up too far, because there are still four attached connectors on the bottom of the logic board.

Schritt 6  ¶ 

  • Slide a spudger beneath the logic board on the side opposite the battery connector and pry up slightly. Don't lift up too far, because there are still four attached connectors on the bottom of the logic board.

Schritt 7  ¶ 

In a similar manner, slide a spudger beneath the logic board where the camera was. Again, don't lift up too far yet as there are still four attached connectors on the bottom of the logic board.

Schritt 7  ¶ 

  • In a similar manner, slide a spudger beneath the logic board where the camera was. Again, don't lift up too far yet as there are still four attached connectors on the bottom of the logic board.

Schritt 8  ¶ 

Lift up the logic board slightly and slide a spudger beneath the logic board to disconnect the display ribbon cable.

Schritt 8  ¶ 

  • Lift up the logic board slightly and slide a spudger beneath the logic board to disconnect the display ribbon cable.

  • After freeing the first connector, slide the spudger further towards the battery and the center of the iPhone to disconnect the speaker connector.

Schritt 9  ¶ 

Go to the other side of the logic board and use a spudger to disconnect the touch sensor cable on the under side of the logic board.

Schritt 9  ¶ 

  • Go to the other side of the logic board and use a spudger to disconnect the touch sensor cable on the under side of the logic board.

Schritt 10  ¶ 

Slide a spudger beneath the black locking bar and pry up to rotate the bar 90 degrees (the bar is already rotated in the picture).

Schritt 10  ¶ 

  • Slide a spudger beneath the black locking bar and pry up to rotate the bar 90 degrees (the bar is already rotated in the picture).

Schritt 11  ¶ 

Hold both the battery and the logic board assembly and slide both parts away from the orange antenna and out of the iPhone.

Schritt 11  ¶ 

  • Hold both the battery and the logic board assembly and slide both parts away from the orange antenna and out of the iPhone.

Schritt 12  ¶ 

There are two stacked circuit boards on the iPhone. The communcations board is on the top, and the logic board is located on the bottom.

Schritt 12  ¶ 

  • There are two stacked circuit boards on the iPhone. The communcations board is on the top, and the logic board is located on the bottom.

  • To separate the boards, insert a spudger into the gap in the metal shielding as shown. Carefully pry with the spudger to loosen the connector.

Schritt 13  ¶ 

Continue to separate the two boards. The silver metal shielding may not immediately separate. If necessary, work around the edge of the board to separate the metal shielding.

Schritt 13  ¶ 

  • Continue to separate the two boards. The silver metal shielding may not immediately separate. If necessary, work around the edge of the board to separate the metal shielding.

  • If you are replacing the communications board, you need to desolder it from the battery. The battery replacement guide can help you remove the battery.
