A charged lithium-ion battery can ignite and/or explode if accidentally punctured.Turn off your iPhone before disassembling it.Remove the two 6.9mm long, five-lobed screws from the bottom edge of the iPhone.If the screws are stripped or damaged, replace the screws.Opening the iPhone's screen will compromise its waterproof seals. Have spare gaskets ready before you go through this step, or avoid exposure to liquid if you reassemble your iPhone without replacing the gaskets.Step 2: Procedure for OpeningHeating the bottom edge of the iPhone will soften the adhesive that secures the screen, making it easier to open.Use a hairdryer or heat gun or prepare an iOpener and apply it to the bottom edge of the iPhone for about a minute to soften the underlying adhesive.Step 3If the plastic depth gauge is attached to the center of the iSclack, remove it immediately; It is not required for larger phones like the iPhone X.The next two steps show iSclack, a handy tool we recommend for anyone who repairs frequently. If you are not using iSclack, skip the two steps for an alternative method.If the plastic depth gauge is attached to the center of the iSclack, remove it immediately; It is not required for larger phones like the iPhone X.Place one suction cup on the front and one on the back of the iPhone near the bottom edge.Press both suction cups firmly into place.If your screen or back glass is severely cracked, covering it with a layer of clear packing tape can make the suction cups stick. iSclack also includes two bands for this purpose.Step 4:Hold your iPhone firmly and close the handle of the iSclack to gently separate the screen from the back case of the phone.Do not try to completely detach the screen; all you need is a small opening along the bottom edge.Insert a pick in the gap.Step 5:If you are using a single suction arm, apply it to the bottom edge of the phone, avoiding the curved part of the glass.If your screen is very cracked, covering it with a layer of clear packing tape can make the suction cup stick. Alternatively, a very strong tape can be used instead of a suction cup. If all else fails, you can stick the suction cup on the broken screen.Step 6:Pull up on the suction cup with firm and steady pressure to create a slight gap between the front panel and the rear case.Insert a pick in the gap.The waterproof adhesive that holds the screen in place is very strong; It takes a significant amount of force to create this initial gap. If you're having trouble getting a gap, apply more heat and gently rock the screen up and down to weaken the adhesive until you have enough room to insert your tool.Step 7:Slide the unlock selection to the lower-left corner and left edge of the iPhone by cutting the adhesive holding the screen in place.Do not insert the forceps too far into the iPhone, or you may damage internal components.Step 8:Reposition your selection on the bottom edge of the iPhone and swipe to the right to continue separating the adhesive.Don't push the selection too far, or you may damage the display cables on this side of the iPhone. Insert only a few millimeters or the width of the screen bezel.Step 9:The top edge of the screen is fixed with both glue and clips.Slide the pull-tab at the top corner of the screen while gently pulling down or shaking the screen in the direction of the Lightning port.The clips will break if you use too much force. Work carefully and be patient.Again, do not insert the pick more than a few millimeters (the width of the display bezel) or you may damage the front panel sensor array.Slide the selection to the opposite corner and cut the remaining glue that secures the screen.step 10Pull the small tab on the suction cup to remove it from the front panel.If you used an iSclack and it is still stuck on your iPhone, remove it now.Step 11:Open the iPhone by flipping the screen up from the left side, like the back cover of a book.Don't try to take the screen completely apart just yet, as several fragile ribbon cables still connect it to the iPhone's logic board.Make sure that the bezel comes off with the screen and is not stuck in the device, as in the picture.Lean the screen against something to keep it supported while working on the phone.During reassembly, place the display in place, align the clips along the top edge, and carefully press the top edge into place before pulling the rest of the display down. If it does not snap into place easily, check the condition of the clips around the screen and make sure they are not bent.Step 12: Screen AssemblageTo be Used in This Step: Magnetic Project MatRemove the five Y000 screws securing the logic board connector bracket of the following lengths:There are three 1.1mm screws.a single 3.1 mm screwa single 3.7mm screwThroughout this repair, keep track of each screw and make sure it's back exactly where it came from to avoid damaging your iPhone.Step 13:Remove the bracket.The bracket can be lightly glued in place. Lift it gently but firmly to separate.During reassembly, this is a good spot to turn on your iPhone and test all functionality before replacing the screen. Make sure to turn off your iPhone completely before continuing to work.Step 14:Use a spudger bit or a clean fingernail to pry the battery connector up from its slot on the logic board.Try not to damage the black silicone gasket surrounding this and other card connections. These gaskets provide extra protection against the ingress of water and dust.Gently bend the connector from the logic board to prevent it from accidentally touching the slot and powering the phone during your repair.Step 15:Use the tip of a spudger or fingernail to disconnect the front panel sensor assembly connector.Step 16:Use the tip of a spudger or fingernail to disconnect the OLED panel cable connector.To reattach press connectors like this, carefully align and press one side down until it clicks into place, then repeat on the other side. Do not press in the middle. If the connector is misaligned, the pins can bend, causing permanent damage.Step 17:Use the tip of a spudger to pull the digitizer cable connector out of its socket.The recessed location of this connector makes it difficult 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 is unresponsive to touch after your repair, remove the battery and then re-seat this connector, making sure it is fully seated and the socket is free of dust or other obstructions.Step 18:The front panel sensor assembly flex cable is lightly glued in place.Carefully lift the cable until the adhesive separates.Step 19:Remove the display assembly.Pause here if you want to replace the waterproof adhesive on the edges of the screen during reassembly.Step 20: SubwooferBe careful not to touch the three rows of grounding pads near the bottom of the iPhone.Remove the seven screws securing the bracket under the Taptic Engine and speaker:two screws Y000 1.9 mma single Y000 1.2mm screwa single Y000 1.6mm screwone 2.4mm Phillips screwone 1.7 mm Phillips screwone 1.5 mm Phillips screwStep 21Lift the bracket from the edge closest to the battery. Do not try to remove it completely as it is still attached by a small flex cable.Step 22:While keeping the bracket out of the way, use the tip of a spudger to lift and remove the flex cable underneath.Step 23:Remove the bracket.Step 24:Remove the 2.1 mm Y000 screw that secures the speaker connector cover.Step 25:Remove the speaker connector cover.Step 26:Use the tip of a spudger to lift and remove the speaker connector.Step 27:When lifting the speaker, be careful not to damage the flex cable you removed. If necessary, hold to one side so the speaker can pop outPlace a spudger under the top edge of the speaker, near the edge of the iPhone case.Gently lift and lift the top edge of the speaker.When reinstalling the speaker, check the position of the flex cable and make sure it is not pinched under the speaker.Step 28:Hold the speaker by its sides and shake it from side to side, separating the adhesive that secures it to the bottom edge of the iPhone.Pull the speaker away from the bottom edge of the iPhone until the adhesive seal comes off.Step 29:Remove the speaker.The adhesive seal of the speaker is not reusable. Peel off any remaining adhesive residue with tweezers.Replace the adhesive gasket during reassembly to help protect against water and dust ingress. Prepare the area by cleaning it with some isopropyl alcohol and a lint-free cloth or coffee filter so that the gasket adheres properly. Install a new gasket on the speaker, and then install the speaker.Step 30: Taptic EngineRemove the 2.3 mm Phillips screw securing the Taptic Engine.Step 31:Use a spudger to lift the Taptic Engine flex cable straight out of its socket.Step 32:Remove the Taptic Engine.Step 33 BatteryThe iPhone X's battery is secured to the back case with four stretch-release adhesives, one on the top cell and three on the bottom.Each piece of adhesive has a black pull tab at the end that is lightly adhered to the side edge of the battery.Step 34Release the first battery adhesive tab from the bottom edge of the battery.Insert a tool from the loop if you're having trouble keeping tabs.Do not puncture the battery with sharp tools. A ruptured battery can leak dangerous chemicals or catch fire.Step 35Be careful not to damage the speaker cable connector just below the center sticky tab.Repeat the above step to separate the two remaining adhesive tabs from the bottom edge of the battery.Step 36:In the following steps, you will pull each tab to gently stretch the adhesive on the bottom of the battery. This special stretch release adhesive loses its stickiness when stretched and then comes off in your hand, allowing you to easily remove the battery.If the strips break, don't panic! They don't always work as intended. Read on for some additional steps to remove broken strips.To increase your chances of success:Do not press on the battery. Hold the iPhone firmly by the sides.Keep the strips straight and wrinkle-free as you pull.Pull very slowly, and give the strip time to stretch and separate. It takes about 15-30 seconds of stretching to remove each strip.Pull at a low angle so the strip doesn't get caught on the bottom edge of the battery.If a strip breaks under the battery and cannot be recovered, switch to the other strips and then continue with the additional steps below.Step 37:Grasp one of the sticky tabs on the outside of the battery and gently pull it away from the battery to the bottom of the iPhone.Pull firmly on the strip until it slides between the battery and the back case.The strip will stretch too many times its original length. If necessary, continue to pull the strip from the side of the battery and hold it again.If the adhesive strips of the battery break during the removal process, use your fingers or blunt tweezers to remove the remaining length of the adhesive and continue pulling.If any of the adhesive strips break under the battery and cannot be removed, try removing the remaining strips and then proceed as indicated below.Step 38:Repeat the previous step to remove the opposite strip, leaving the center strip last.Step 39:Remove the center strip, being careful not to trip over the speaker flex cable.Step 40:The final pull tab is very close to the Face ID hardware. If Face ID is damaged, it can only be repaired by Apple, so work carefully.Peel and separate the pull tab on the last adhesive strip on the top edge of the upper battery cell.Step 41:If you have successfully removed all four adhesive strips, skip the next step.Pull out the last adhesive strip.The strip can eject the battery when it separates from the iPhone, so keep your hand over the battery to secure it - but don't press down on the battery, or the added pressure could cause the adhesive strip to break under the battery...If you have successfully removed all four adhesive strips, skip the next step.If the adhesive on the bottom of the battery breaks and cannot be recovered, place a few drops of high-concentration (above 90%) isopropyl alcohol under the edge of the battery in the area of ​​the broken adhesive strip(s).Wait about one minute for the alcohol solution to weaken the adhesive. Use the flat end of a spudger to gently lift the battery.Do not try to forcibly remove the battery. If necessary, apply a few more drops of alcohol to further weaken the adhesive. Never deform or puncture the battery with your pry tool.Be careful not to damage the ribbon cables directly under the battery or the wireless charging coil.For alternative methods of removing the battery from the chassis, proceed to the next step below.Step 42 Alternative method to remove the battery from the chassisIf any of the adhesive strips break and the battery remains stuck to the back case, prepare an iOpener or use a hairdryer to heat the back case directly behind the battery.Warm-up the iPhone until the back case is hot to the touch. If you overheat your iPhone, you risk accidentally igniting the battery.Turn the iPhone over and thread a strong piece of string (such as dental floss or a long piece of a thin guitar string) under the battery.Wrap the ends of the string around a cloth (or wear gloves) to protect your fingers.Pull the string from side to side with a sawing motion along the entire length of the battery to separate the adhesive. This may take some time as the adhesive is slow to deform, but it will release with patience. Do not deform or damage the battery.If you choose to use pry tools to remove the battery from the iPhone, be very careful or you may damage the ribbon cables or the wireless charging coil directly under the battery.Step 43:Hold the battery by its bottom edge and remove it from the iPhone.If there is any alcohol solution left in the phone, carefully wipe it or let it dry before inserting your new battery.Reinstall the Taptic Engine and speaker before inserting a new battery. This helps align the battery correctly during installation.Temporarily reconnect the battery connector to the logic board socket before attaching the backup battery. This ensures that the battery is properly aligned in its recess.Paste the battery, disconnect it, and proceed with reassembling your device.If your new battery does not come with adhesive pre-installed, refer to this guide for help with replacing the adhesive strips.Perform a force restart after reinstallation. This can prevent several problems and simplify troubleshooting.
