What Size Philips Screwdriver does it need?

Hello, I am going to be doing an iPhone 5s battery replacement soon and want to make sure that I have all of the tools. In the iFixit video of doing a battery replacement it says to use a Philips #00 but on the web guide, it says that we should use a Philips #000. I have the Pro Tech Toolkit so I know that I will be able to get this done, but I am ordering a new set of German Screwdrivers from KC Tool and want to make sure that I order the right size. I know that all other iPhones that I have worked on use a Philips #00. Anybody know the answer as to which one is the best for disassembly of the iPhone 5s.

I've been using Wiha PH000, works great. If you can get german set screw drivers go for 000 as they are good quality.

00 works, but isn't the best for iPhone phillips head.

Is Wiha PH 000 working good for you? I feel that it is too big and I went for a Wera ph 000.


Ben is correct. 000 is best.
