Use a plastic opening tool around the perimeter of the back cover to loosen it on all sides.
Open the back cover by gently lifting the right side, and rotating it to the left side (as if you were opening a book).
Be careful not to rotate the back cover from the bottom, as you will break the plastic screw holes on top of the device.
Do not peel the sticker away from the left EMI shield. It will expose the "VOID VOID" lettering that will void your warranty!
Use the plastic opening tool to gently peel away at the "Warranty Void" sticker. Start on one edge, as shown, and slide the tool from side to side until the sticker is removed from just the battery.
Gently pull the sticker away from the battery connector, just enough so that the connector is visible.
Wedge a plastic opening tool in between the connector and logic board, and gently pull the connector upwards.
Make sure not to disconnect the white connector socket on the logic board, and just the connector itself.
