[title] Alternative methods to unstick the battery from the case
[* icon_note] A piece of dental floss may be used to separate the battery from the rear case. A stronger alternative to dental floss is an unwound guitar string, such as a 0.009 E string from a 12-string set.
[* black] Thread the floss or string underneath one end of the battery and pull side to side in a sawing motion to separate the adhesive.
[* icon_note] Alternatively, if the battery remains stuck to the rear case, [guide|11677|prepare an iOpener|new_window=true] or use a hair dryer to heat the rear case directly behind the battery.
+ [* icon_caution] Overheating the iPhone may ignite the battery.
