Because heat is required to remove the screen and LCD, it is advisable to remove the battery entirely as well.

It is important to be very careful and use little force in this step. Too much force can damage the battery. A damaged battery can lead to an electrical fire or explosion of the battery.

Carefully and slowly work the iFixit Opening Tool down the edge of the battery pack. Angle the tool to pry it up.

Be careful not to bend the battery pack.
