My Problem

Home button fell off of iPhone 5

My Fix

Went well. iFixit provided step by step instructions that were easy to follow. Made the fix a breeze!

My Advice

Order all the necessary tools. I forgot one thing and had to order and wait for that to ship

My Problem

Someone I knew had a home button that was falling out.

My Fix

Fine super easy took about 15 minutes.

My Advice

Take your time I only did it quick because I use to be an Apple Genius.

My Problem

My iPhone 5c home button was loosing the top coat and was scratching off.

My Fix

I ordered the iPhone 5 home button, but actually needed the iPhone 5c button. However, I completed the repair any way using the iPhone 5c home button repair guide and it works great. The repair went fairly smooth except there were a few tense moments working with very small and delicate parts. The hardest part was that at the step before the last I was unable to get the final part off before accessing the button. The part was glued on very well. I had to work around this part. Luckily nothing broke and I was able to install the new button.

My Advice

Take your time and read ahead so you don't miss anything.

My Problem

i had lost my home button the phone worked but I was afraid I would damage it if I kept pushing on the gold inner tab under where ur home button sits.. So I googled and it lead me to ifixit..

My Fix

I got the package and I opened it up there it was but around the circle was extra plastic..dang I wouldn't be able to use it I am not taking the phone apart what to do then I I had a MacGyver moment.. I took some cutters lightly cut the excess off and placed it till it fit snug but not jam it in and it works perfect and won't fall out..stop shaking ur head lol it was 11$ with shipping vs taking it to have it fixed..

My Advice

Very happy and it looks like it did when I got the phone..

My Problem

My son got a new iphone because the home button fell off of his iphone 5. My husband had been thinking about switching from b-berry to iphone but I really didn't want to buy one and have him not like it and change his mind so I asked my son if we could have his broken one and I would get it fixed. I called a few places to see how much and it seemed pretty expensive to fix so I googled it and found ifixit. I checked out one of the guides and then priced out the list of things we would need and it was sooo much cheaper. My husband took a look a the guide and said he could do it so I ordered the parts. They came in perfect condition exactly as pictured.

My Fix

It took my husband about 45 minutes to get the phone apart replace but button and get it back together using the guide. (There wasn't even any swearing!). He is currently using the phone and it is working just great! We had more problems with a faulty sim card then we did with the repair! Now he's tell the kids not to worry if anything happens to their iphones he can fix them!(He's gonna be walking around in blue shirt asking if he can help them any day now!)

Thanks so much ifixit, I have your site bookmarked and will always remember to check there first!

My Advice

My advice, always check with ifixit! I have seen some step by step instructions before but nothing like this,these guides are made for real people not technicians. And the fact that they give you a list and you can get everything you need all in one place makes it effortless.

My Problem

My girlfriend's iPhone 5 was irritating her to no end due to it's limited battery life and non functioning home button. I laughed for as long as I could. She decided to get the 6, and I had full access to the 5. Google fix iphone, click ifixit...yea...this guy got his world rocked.

My Fix

I was geeking out days before reading the manual you guys provided. As soon as I got it, I took it apart. Step by step was clear. It was awesome.

My Advice

Most excited because now I have a new Iphone 5 to use as my sidekick camera amongst other things.

It's a super east fix. I now invited a few of my friends who own iphones with crappy batteries or buttons to a fixit party. Bring your own phone, and parts...and booze...Thank you ifixit girl...I hope you're a girl...

My Problem

Home button stuck.

My Fix

It was easy with your tools and video.

My Advice

Follow the video!

My Problem

The home button on my iPhone 5 fell off and could not use the phone anymore.

My Fix

It went very well. I bought the button and the tools from your site and I used the excellent video that you guys made. I followed it to the letter and had no issues, it took me set by step until the job was completed. I was done in less than 30 minutes.

I did not have the heat pad so I used a blow dryer to help loosen up the button cable very carefully which I would not recommend doing. But, if you have no choice set it to the lowest level of heat and air speed and keep it away from the tiny screws. I was done in about 30 minutes.

My Advice

Get the tools for the job because it will make your job go without a hitch and do not deviate from the video instructions.

My Problem

Battery would not hold Charge and Home Button seal was broken making Button feel loose.

My Fix

All Replacement parts - New Battery/ New Home Button- from IFixit Worked Great. As For the repair overall very smooth. I Found Ifixit on YouTube under Iphone repair they have plenty of useful clips on there. This is my second iphone repair using IFixit parts very Pleased So Far!

My Advice

It was all Pretty Simple really. The Key is dont be in a big hurry and keep track of all the screws as you take them out.

My Problem

My home button on my iPhone 5 completely broke off. I was unable to use the device after.

My Fix

The repair went smoothly. It's truly amazing what can be accomplished when you have the right tools for the job. "ifixit" provided everything I needed to get the home button replaced and I did it in the comfort of my own home.

My Advice

My advice would be to get the right tools the first time and save yourself the hassle and frustration. Getting the job done right with no hiccups is key and very rewarding.
