Use a suction cup or an iSclack to pull up on the glass and create a slight gap between the glass and the metal frame.

If your display is badly cracked, a suction cup may not adhere. It may help to first cover the display with a layer of packing tape. Alternatively, you can superglue your suction cup to the display.

Insert an opening pick into the gap.

Slide the pick around the sides and bottom of the display to cut the adhesive. Apply more heat as needed.

Work carefully—the glass is thin and will crack easily if you try to force it.

Separate the top edge last. There are antennas on both sides, so be careful not to damage them. Use more heat or a bit of isopropyl alcohol to help weaken the adhesive.
