iPhone 5S Home Button Repair In India. A Guide By Techyuga
Opening iPhone 5s
1.Power off your iPhone 5s
Before performing any repair you should always power off your device before opening it up.
2. Remove the two security screws on both sides of the dock connector
There are two security screws that secure the screen to the frame and they sit on each side of the dock connector. Use your 5-point security screwdriver to remove them. They are both the same size so it’s okay if you mix them up.
3. Remove the display assembly
Place your suction cup slightly above the Home button assembly and secure it to the screen.
4. Remove the display assembly
Holding the iPhone in place with one hand, gently pull upwards on the suction cup until you free the bottom of the screen but do NOT pull up all the way at this point as a cable running to the Touch ID sensor is still connected. You only want to separate the screen about an inch at this point.
5. Remove the display assembly
Now that you have a clear view of the cables, use the pointed edge of your spudger tool in order to carefully remove the metal shield covering the Touch ID cable.
Make sure you don’t lose the metal guard that covers the Touch ID connector.
6. Remove the display assembly
Again, use the pointed edge of your spudger tool in order to disconnect Touch ID.
You can now safely swing the display up more in order to see where it is connected to the board.
7. Remove the display assembly
Remove the four screws holding down the shield that covers the display cables. To do this, use your #000 screwdriver.
8. Remove the display assembly
Now use your spudger tool in order to remove the three cables shown in the image below. You’ll need to remove the two off to the far right in order to reveal the third and final cable, which sits below them.
9. Remove the display assembly
The display assembly should now be free from the body of the phone. Go ahead and set everything but the display assembly aside now.

10. Replace the Home button flex
Remove the top right screw holding the Touch ID cable in place using your #000 screwdriver. There is a tiny metal guard underneath, make sure you hold it in place so the cable doesn’t spin or tear underneath it. Also, make note of the orientation of this guard as you’ll need to replace it again during re-assembly.
11. Replace the Home button flex
Once you’ve gotten the top screw out and set that and the guard aside, you can fold back part of the Touch ID cable in order to remove the two screws holding in the shield that sits above the Home button. Again, use your #000 screwdriver.
12. Remove the Metal sheet
You can now remove the metal shield and set it aside.
13. Remove the Touch ID
Lastly, very carefully use your spudger tool to start prying up the Home button assembly which is held in with a bit of adhesive. Be careful doing this as it’s easy to tear cables that run to the Touch ID sensor.
15. Remove the Touch ID Flex
Now simply swap the new Home button flex in the old one’s place. If you ordered the parts I’ve recommended above from eTech, the home button is already in place. If you ordered from elsewhere and got only a flex, you’ll have to transfer the Home button and gasket over to the new flex. Just be careful not to tear the gasket while doing this.
16. Reassemble the display assembly
Reconnect the three cables shown in the image below, starting with the cable to the far left, which sits underneath the other two.
17. Reassemble the display assembly
Replace the display shield using the four screws and your #000 Phillips screwdriver.
18. Reassemble the Touch ID
Re-connect the Touch ID cable to the logic board. The easiest tool to help you do this is the pointed end of the spudger tool.
19. Reassemble the Touch ID
Replace the Touch ID shield that sits over the cable.
20. Replace the dock connector screws
Use your 5-point security screwdriver to replace the two dock connector screws that sit on either side of the dock.
21. Test your iPhone 5s Home button
Once you’ve got your iPhone 5s fully assembled, you can go ahead and power it back on. After it boots up, perform the following steps to test the new Home button:
Hold down the Home button and ensure Siri activates properly
Double tap and triple tap to ensure those actions work
Make sure you can enter and exit apps as you should be able to with a single tap
Hold down the power and Home to make sure your iPhone 5s reboots correctly.
