It will show you how to remove the home button, front-facing camera and sensor assembly, LCD shield plate, and home button ribbon cable—all of which will need to be transferred to your replacement panel. To replace the entire assembly instead, follow [guide|29339|this much shorter guide].

In either caseFor more advanced fixers, this guide will help you replace ''only'' the iPhone’s LCD screen + digitizer assembly (a.k.a. the bare “front panel”). This requires you to transfer several components from your original screen to the new one before installing it—including the front-facing camera, earpiece speaker, LCD shield plate, and home button assembly.

, it's important to transfer the original home button onto the new display in order for Touch ID (fingerprint scanning) to function.
