Rear Camera replacement halp

Purchased the Iphone 7 and the apple battery case. Decided I didn't like the iphone 7 and went to take it back to the store. As I was taking it out of the case it dropped and smashed the camera. I was basically told that I now get to pay for a phone that has no camera and they will not take it back.

When will replacement cameras for the iPhone 7 be made available?

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

What do you mean "smashed the camera"? Is the lens broken or did the camera module itself break?

by

The replacement cameras are available now from Chinese suppliers, so I would expect to see them on the market in the US soon.

Not sure if its the camera or just the lense cover, I've ordered the iFixit kit so I can open the phone and see what is actually broken.

Post some photos once you get inside so we can see what you're dealing with.

Can the rear lens be changed without opening the phone? Does it just pop out?

I just replaced my GF Damaged Lens

First remove the screen as the ifixit Guide

Then remove the rear camera (2 screws) and pout pops the camera. Them carefully remove the camera holder (pain to remove without twisting etc but i straightened it out afterwords)

To remove the lens pop it out with a pen or something similar. Now add some glue i used E8000 frame glue and them put in the new lens and added the camera holder and put back in the camera.

Now i added a new screen seal i used a iPhone 6s as i cant find any ip7 ones yet.

Put the screen back on and all done :)

Where did you order the lens from?

okay several questions. Where did you get the lens cover? I basically destroyed the part that you said you were able to bend back.. so where do I get that?

I can't help with the bracket as mine didn't break so didn't needn't to replace it,

Perhaps try the iPhone 6 bracket

Not sure if it will fit yet as still early days with the 7. You don't have to replace the bracket if you can't the camera will still be held in place by the top cover you screw back on, just make sure the lens glue is set before putting the camera back in otherwise it will glue it in haha.
