    • Place the device face down on a clean cloth or another smooth surface.

    • In the following steps, you will need to apply some force to your device. If your device is on a rough surface, you may scratch the screen.

    • Insert the plastic opening tool between the device’s front and back panels. You might need to wiggle the tool up and down to wedge it in the gap.

    • Maneuver the tool around the device until the back unclips from the front panel.

    • Carefully separate the back panel from the rest of the device internals.

    • Gently pry the battery free from the adhesive holding it in place.

    • Take care not to pierce or rupture the battery, which can release dangerous chemicals.

    • If you're having trouble working the battery free, warm it up with an iOpener or hair dryer to soften the adhesive, and then slide a credit card behind the battery to break up the adhesive.

    • Be careful not to yank the battery out—you'll need to disconnect a connector before removing the battery completely.

    • Remove the battery.


To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

Thank you it worked for me.

A bit nervous breaking it down, once I got the back plate off it was very simple, unplugged the battery, reconnected put it back together fired it up , great advice.

Thanks again

The battery removal step did not sufficiently warn about how hard the adhesive used for the battery was, and using the spudger ended up piercing the battery when I tried to pry the battery off.
