Right to Repair

I also had this happen and wanted to share my experience. I tried the safety pin solution above to no avail and then tried with super glue.  I finally decided to go to an iphone repair store to get an expert’s opinion. After messing with it for a while, the attendant told me that normally it would have been a straightforward process (they deal with this problem quite frequently and usually remove the piece within 5 minutes with a pair of tweezers), but because I used glue he would have to disassemble the phone. This ended up working fine, and the piece was removed, but it took a lot longer and cost more ($50 dollars instead of being free). Morale of the story: Go to a tech repair store when you have a problem instead of potentially damaging your phone and DO NOT USE GLUE!
