Switching off on iPhone 5

Power off your iphone 5S

Before performing any repair you should always power off your device before opening it up.

There are two security screws on either side of the Lightning connector port. Use your security screwdriver to remove them.

Remove the damaged display

This is the method we recommend and the one you should use if you can get a seal. If not, use the straight edge razor method below.

Position your suction cup firmly above the Home button.

Gently pull upwards while holding the phone down with your other hand.

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.

he front-facing camera and sensor cable sits to the left of where the earpiece assembly was and lines the top of the device. We need to remove it.

Carefully lift it up but notice the kink in the cable underneath the front-facing camera. The noise canceling mic is pushed into the display assembly. Pop it out carefully.

The rest of the cable is only held in with a tiny bit of adhesive. Carefully peel it back to finish removing the cable from the display assembly.

There are plastic clips that run along the top of the display assembly like you can see below. These need to sit underneath the inside of the frame.

Testing new screen in iPhone 5S

We are done

Now that you’ve finished reassembling your iphone 5S you can go ahead and turn it back on by pressing and holding down the power button until you see the Apple logo.

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.
