Replacing battery with crack in screen


I have a single crack on the right side of my iPhone. Is this going to make the crack worse if I go in and replace the battery? I know the replacement process requires the phone to be taken apart.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

bradenspam, I am pretty sure that your crack will get worse. Plan on replacing the display as well.

If you try and remove the screen with a suction, there is a good chance you can make it worse. I recommend using a razor blade to wedge between the bezel and the bottom edge (by the charging port) to pry it open rather than pull on the screen.

Use this kind:

Make sure you insert the blade PARALLEL to the edge of the bezel so that the ENTIRE edge of the blade goes into the seam. This way you prevent scratching the frame.
