My Problem

A family member dropped the iphone into liquid - due to the ick factor, no further details will be given. :) The iPhone flickered and died.

My Fix

1. Following this page's advice, we turned it off and opened it up and dried it off (with disinfectant and paper towels due to the ick factor).

2. When it didn't turn on after awhile, we looked into iFixit's guide to replace the battery and ordered a kit.

3. When the kit arrived, we were able to follow the steps. The only tricky part was removing one of the screws for the battery since we had stripped it with earlier attempts. We eventually succeeded in removing it by loosening the other screw and then rotating the remaining part loose under the screw.

4. Popped in the battery and reassembled the phone. Turned it on, and it worked!

My Advice

We had tried too hard with our own screwdrivers to loosen the internal screws, so it was stripped. It would have been better to wait until the kit came.

My Problem

My battery has progressively held less of a charge and needed rejuvenation.

My Fix

The repair is straightforward and I'm certain that my time would reduce by half on a future iteration. It would have been far more difficult had the two screwdrivers not been magnetized.

My Advice

Watching the online videos seemed helpful -- or at least confidence building. Study the orientation of the grounding clip while it's still in place. Work in an uncluttered area where a flying fastener will be easy to spot.

iPhone 4S Battery Replacement

My Fix

Easy

My Advice

Visit IFIXIT

My Problem

Battery wouldn't keep a charge.

My Fix

Found out I can not see as well as I used to be able to.

My Advice

Be careful of the little brass clip that needs to be removed after removing the two screws holding the battery plug. I had it go twang and had to guess about how to put it back in. If you look closely one corner is rounded to give you a hint how it should go back in.

My Problem

The battery on my IPhone 4S was draining very quickly. So I wanted to replace it with a new battery.

My Fix

The repair was pretty easy - especially with the tools in the kit provided.

My Advice

Make sure to watch videos on how to make the specific repairs beforehand. And watch them in their entirety before beginning the repair.

My Problem

Battery was dying quickly

My Fix

Repair was easy enough. I followed the instructions on the website. Battery lasts 18 hours now instead of 12 and I'm not a heavy user. It used to last for several days so I'm very disappointed with the replacement.

I spent the extra money buying the iFixit battery rather than the cheaper ones on Amazon based on some very bad Amazon reviews. I had the tools from previous repairs and didn't plan to make the repair a second time so really only needed the battery but couldn't figure out how to un-bundle the tools and new screws from the battery purchase. Wouldn't have minded paying for them if the battery had worked properly.

My Advice

MMV

My Problem

original battery would not hold a decent charge- it was 4 yrs old so ready to be replaced

My Fix

found you tube video on 4s repair and followed to the letter; very easy- took about 10 min max

My Advice

the kit ifixit sends is great - having the proper tiny drivers makes the difference. nice kit

and well worth the $$$

My Problem

the phone was dead and this was the only hope

My Fix

no problem

My Advice

use the guide

My Problem

Original battery would barely hold a charge.

My Fix

Simple and straight forward replacement using the tools in the Fix Kit. The only fiddly bit was getting the grounding clip back in the right place; a pair of tweezers helped with that. The flat cable joining the battery to the connector seemed slightly misfolded, but everything fitted back into place without any problem anyway, so it wasn't a big deal.

Sorry, no pictures because the camera was in the phone being fixed :-)

My Advice

If I had known it was that cheap, quick and easy to change the battery in a 4s I would have done it ages ago!

My Problem

Original battery no longer holding a charge, occassionally suddenly dropping from 50-60% battery life, to below 10% , or even shutting down due to low battery.

My Fix

Worst part was getting the glue to release the old battery.

My Advice

Just a reminder if you run into the same thing... GO EASY and apply light-to-medium pressure and hold it steadily, AND remember to NOT pry against the board, but ONLY against the outer edge/case. ;)

After that, pop the old one out, drop the new one in, ensure that the grounding strap (the tiny loose piece held in place with the upper screw), is in position, snap the connector together, and insert the screws and replace the back cover...

The replacement battery came with approx 50% charge, which lasted approx 30 hours, before it got down to the recommended below 10% charge level before shutting down and performing an uninterrupted FULL charge, to help set battery memory for a longer life. That took approx 3 hours, and the replacement battery has approx 80)+) hour life now... SWEET !!!! ;)
