It is not that easy because of the tough adhesive. it is impossible to remove the glass without heating it, but be careful the camera lenses got damage of to intensive heat. Better remove the camera before tiny pieces of glass could harm the functionality.

Will the device still be waterproof after this repair? (provided the repair is done correctly)

Bonjour,

Pour information : les iPhone ne sont pas étanches ! Même si les publicités laissent penser le contraire, il faut savoir que les iPhone ne sont pas étanches, pour preuve : il suffit de lire les conditions de garantie de chez Apple qui stipulent bien : “La présente Garantie ne s’applique pas : ... aux dommages causés par un accident,... une exposition à un liquide, au feu, à un tremblement de terre ... “

Donc, que ce soit après une réparation ou avant la réparation, votre iPhone n’est pas étanche, les différents joints “d’étanchéité” présents dans l’iPhone le protège principalement des poussières fines et des petites projections de liquide (genre : micro gouttelettes d’eau) .

Vous pouvez trouver ces joints sur cPix.fr ainsi que les pièces détachées et les outils pour réparer votre iPhone X

Mais n’oubliez pas, il n’est pas étanche ;-)
