I have never seen the frame for sale by itself; I think it's part of the front glass and you will have to replace the whole assembly.

I have seen the frame for sale in ebay..but how to install??


Oh, do you mean a frame like the picture in this thread?

If so -- take off the whole front panel using the instructions in the iFixit guide above, then hold the display in your hand with the screen facing away from you. Pinch your thumb and index finger around one of the "tabs" of the frame -- near the corner, with your thumb on the back of the screen -- and push the screen out of the front of the frame with your thumb. It doesn't take much pressure, there's just a little bit of glue ... just make sure you're pushing the screen OUT of the front of the phone. You can then push your screen into the new frame -- you might need a little bit of glue to hold it in place. If that's not clear, tell me, and I'll make a diagram.


yup..! exactly that on. thank you for the answer..

can u show me the diagram?? cuz im new in assembly/disassembly an iPhone..

thank you for your help


Okay, take a look at this -- hold the tab and push on the flat black part, then push the rest of the screen out.
