Attach the small suction cup to the iPhone, above the home-button.

Grip the suction cup, and start lifting the display slowly, and gently, making sure not to remove the display completely. There are still ribbon cables connecting the display assembly to the motherboard.

In some cases, the suction cup just won't adhere to the screen! You could use a heavy duty suction cup, or duct tape to pry off the screen. However, if you do not plan on replacing the screen, I do not suggest that you use duct tape.

Lift the display to a 45 degree angle.
