My iPhone doesn't look like the one in the teardown video. What's up?
Ok so I did a screen replacement and battery replacement on Iphone 3s. Everything went exactly as shown in the online videos. My current Iphone (an unlocked AT&T Iphone 5 model A1428) has battery "issues" so I ordered a replacement battery from Ifixit. It has arrived and the part number is correct for an Iphone 5.
So, I open the phone and it looks nothing like the view in the video. It has a "solid Cover" and I don't see the battery. I am afraid to proceed further until I find out what is going on.
Has anybody had this "problem"?
Did they (Apple) make a change after a Certain Serial Number?
Did I do something wrong?
The last two repairs to my old Iphone 3s were easy, so That's why I am questioning this.
I can't afford a new Iphone right now so it's really important that I get this battery changed out.
Thanks in advance,
Here is a picture of what I found in my Iphone 5 when I opened it.
It is different than what is shown in the Video.
What am I doing wrong???
Again, Model A1428
Is this a good question?
