    • Power off your iPhone before beginning disassembly.

    • Remove the two 3.4 mm pentalobe screws at the bottom edge of the iPhone.

Can anyone confirm 7/7P's pentalobe screws have a ring of seal near the screw head?

Hey Cooper,

There is no seal on the screw. The head of the screw simply pushes against the lip of the screw well, without using any sort of pneumatic seal, o-ring etc.

As Talon says, it is part of the casing.

I not recall seeing one. If there is one I would expect it to be part of the casing.

as the costumer said, there is a sealant but not noticeable
