If this is your first time removing an iPhone battery adhesive strip, refer to the video in the following step before beginning.

Try to keep the strips flat and unwrinkled during this procedure; wrinkled strips will stick together and break instead of pulling out cleanly.

Slowly pull one battery adhesive tab away from the battery, toward the bottom of the iPhone.

Pull steadily, maintaining constant tension on the strip until it slips out from between the battery and the rear case. For best results, pull the strip at a 60º angle or less.

The strip will stretch to many times its original length. Continue pulling and re-grab the strip near the battery if necessary.
