thank you very much ! My iPhone 7 crashed and the ominous blues screen appeared… I couldn’t do anything, not even turn off the iPhone (pressing and holding the Sleep/Wake button didn’t work; I tried doing the same with Sleep/Wake and Home button simultaneously, it didn’t work either). I was already going to do the reset of the iPhone connecting it to iTunes, then I found your website while looking for “how to change iPhone battery by yourself” instructions … Luckily it was not necessary !

I was already going to reset the iPhone connecting it to iTunes, then I found your website (thinking of turning off the iPhone by removing the battery, I was looking for instructions on how to remove it). I could turn off the iPhone, the apple logo appeared and now everything is ok..

Thanks again !
