Where to purchase micro tips for Weller soldering iron

HI, I have a weller soldering iron - WLC100

and my tips are too big, where can I get a micro tip for this iron and solder so I can work on he iphone 4s logic board.

I have the ST7 tip which is supposed to be .012 inch thick but it is giant, as well as the solder.

The problem you are hitting is the limits of most soldering irons. They are just too massive given the size of some of the SMT components used in iPhones & iPads.

This is were a different approach is used. Instead of using solder wire we use Solder Paste and using a Hot Air Rework Station instead of an iron.

lit, the ST7 is the smallest tip for your Weller. You may have to look into getting a different station.
