Pull The Display

Just make sure you keep your hand over the top of the iPhone as you don’t want to completely pull the display off. There are still cables attached underneath.

Now set the razor blade aside and continue to work around the bottom and bottom edges until you free the display from the frame.

Do not pull it straight upwards but instead, swing it upwards as there are still cables attached at the top we need to remove.

If all went well, your iPhone should boot up just fine. Make sure to test the new replacement for dead spots and check the display quality to make sure there are no dead pixels or discoloration. Since you did have to transfer components that control brightness, sound, and the proximity sensor – it’s always a good idea to test those functions too so you know you transferred all the components over correctly.


How Much is the Cost of iPhone 5 Screen or display repair and replacement in India

Cracking or breaking your iPhone 5’s screen or LCD display can be an unfortunate thing. However, once the glass display is broken it becomes mandatory to get an iPhone 5 screen replacement or in simple words to get a iPhone 5 cracked screen repair.

Repair From Apple Authorized Service Center:

When we face any issue with our device, first thing comes in our mind is visit an authorized service center. We generally think the so-called “Authorized “service center will give us genuine service but that is partial truth we know. The biggest disadvantage of getting your iPhone 5 screen replaced or repaired from an authorized service center is that

  • Although they claim 100% genuine products but no warranties are guaranteed
  • Secondly the costs are extremely high.

Repair from Local Shops :

The hefty price of the Apple stores thus leaves you with the second option of getting a cheap repair from local shops. They are quick in their service and you will get back your iPhone 5 in no time and at a reasonable budget. Yet there are disadvantages of getting the cracked iPhone 5 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.
