These screws are different lengths so make sure you remember which one goes where. The one that is slightly larger is the bottom screw.
There is a tiny grounding clip underneath the battery clip where the first screw is located. Use your spudger tool or finger to remove it before prying the clip up. Many times it can go flying if you don’t remove it first and then you’ll have difficulty locating it so it’s best to remove it first.

Move to the edge of the iPhone where the volume buttons are located and use your spudger tool to carefully pry up the battery. It is stuck down with a good amount of adhesive so be careful when prying upwards that you don’t bend the battery. This is why I do not use the plastic tab that is provided.

After the top of the assembly is free, move towards the bottom on either side of the Home button and repeat the same process.
Once all the adhesive is broken, carefully pull the front assembly off the iPhone taking care to make sure the digitizer and LCD cables don’t get caught up in the frame.

How Much is the Cost of iPhone Screen or display repair and replacement in India

They are quick in their service and you will get back your iPhone 4s in no time and at a reasonable budget. Yet there are disadvantages of getting the cracked iPhone 4s screen repaired from local technicians which are

  • Cheap quality repair and the replacement would be made with a locally manufactured cheap quality screen.
  • No genuine part, rather inferior quality screen which not only is lesser bright than the original but might also lack compatibility and therefore might damage the motherboard.
