My Problem

My iPhone 5 has been wonderful (sans some early iOS 7 growing pains), but after having the machine for 2 plus years… it's battery started to bulge just a few weeks ago. This bulge was getting so bad that the top right portion of the Retina screen started to raise up from the chassis. Eventually causing the whole upper portion (where the earpiece & FaceTime camera resides) to lift up… exposing some of the internal parts.

I thought the thing would explode if I didn't replace the battery. So I went ahead & took a chance on ifixit & bought a new one from them.

My Fix

When the battery came in the mail, I promptly disassembled the phone with the video tutorial ifixit has. It was pretty straight forward, & the about the only thing I had troubles with were the 3 cables that attaches to the Retina display. Other than that the phone booted with no trouble.

My Advice

About the only thing I can tell anyone about doing this procedure is to take their time. & another thing, once the phone has been reassembled, make sure to take out, & reinsert the nano SIM (several times if you have to). Especailly if you're still on iOS 7, doing so will prevent you from wondering why the phone is unable to find a carrier signal… it took me nearly 15min of fear before trying this out… I thought I'd f%#ked my beautiful iPhone 5 up lol

My Problem

My battery on my Iphone 5 would constantly die, it would go from 100- 70% within an hour and then it would die almost instantly when it would reach 55%.

My Fix

The hardest part was taking the battery out of the phone. It is really glued in there. With alot of patience it will come out. The new battery is working great. My phone lasts the whole day without needing to be constantly recharged.

My Advice

I wouldnt say that this is the easiest of repairs due to the tight space and the strong glue used by apple. As long as you take your time you will be able to do the repair.

My Problem

The glass on my iPhone 5 is separating from the case. I replaced the battery hoping it was swollen and that was the reason for the separating glass.

My Fix

Some hairy moments, like when I accidentally separated the entire glass display from the case. Eventually I got it right, and once you're in replacing the battery is very simple.

My Advice

I would say if you're replacing the battery for the same reason I did, keep in mind that you probably do need to replace the battery but it may not fix your glass separation problem. You're going to need to re-adhere the glass to the case. I'm still waiting for advice on that repair. I would also stress that inserting your pry tool in between the case and the 'glass housing' (not really sure what to call it) can be scary if you've never done this kind of stuff before (I hadn't). Make sure you're not trying to insert your tool between the 'glass housing' and the edge of the glass but instead between the entire case and the 'glass housing.' Good luck!

My Problem

My iPhone 5 battery would die super fast. It would only stay alive for about an hour and then die.

My Fix

I received the package on time. I was able to take my phone part in about 5 mins. This is the first time I have ever did any kind of work on a phone. But it was super easy with the cool little videos they have. I would recommend buying the fix it kit. That is the only way you will be successful in fixing your phone.

My Advice

It's super easy with the little videos they have. I would recommend on buying the fix it kit. That is the only way you will be successful in fixing your phone.

My Problem

Both my 4s and my brother's 5 were needing the battery swap.

My Fix

For both phones, the process was relatively easy, though I recommend not drinking two cups of coffee on an empty stomach right beforehand--shaky hands much? We both used the online guides, which made the procedure simple to follow.

My Advice

If you're not ready or willing to throw down stupid amounts of money on a new (or even used) phone just because your battery is no good, then this is the way to go.

My Problem

My iPhone 5 is one of the early models (Sept 2012) that have a manufacturing defect on both battery & power button. Apple acknowledged the problem and has a free repair program. My phone qualified for both battery & power button repair programs. However, Apple customer service denied "free" service, because my phone has a cosmetic dent in the frame next to the audio jack. Cosmetic = 0.3mm dent !!! See picture. Apple would still do the repairs, only I had to pay $279 + tax. Thank you so much Apple!! I really appreciate your help, but no thanks! So I decided to do the repair myself and involve my 5year old daughter in the project. She was thrilled :)

My Fix

I studied the guides & videos on iFixit.com several times. The information is spot on and the repair went great. The biggest issue was keeping organized and knowing each screw where it came from. The "Anti-Static Project Tray" helped loads. Overall, a very successful repair. Daughter was happy too to help daddy :)

My Advice

It was unclear to me wether the defective part was the power button itself, or the "Audio Control and Power Button Cable". The information on iFixit.com is also unclear saying 'it might be' the button or 'it might be' the cable. In fairness, you can't really know. So after replacing the power button, it sometimes works and sometimes not. So my next repair now will be to replace the cable too. This looks like one of the most complex repairs for the iPhone 5, so I'm not really looking forward to it...

My Problem

When my iPhone turned two years old, the battery started draining really quickly and behaving unpredictably (going from 80% to 10%, going from 30% to 0% suddenly and shutting down). It was at the point where I could no longer use the phone.

My Fix

I ordered the battery and the kit because I needed the special screwdrivers, the suction cup and the prying tool. I watched a few videos online and read a lot of comments. I am not a tech guru, but I prefer making my own repairs wherever possible, and I thought this sounded pretty straightforward. It was actually much harder than I thought it would be, mostly because of the amount of force I had to apply (to the screen and the battery) and the size of the parts (SMALL). I think it took me over half an hour to make the repair. Most of that time was spent trying to get the battery out, first by pulling the tab, then by prying. I also spent a fair amount of time just trying to get the screen off.

My Advice

I would recommend doing your research and knowing what to expect. Watch videos posted elsewhere in addition to the one posted here for two reasons: 1) this video involves detaching the screen entirely. I did not want to go that route, so I made the repair while my screen was still attached at the top, and 2) this video spends no time on putting the new battery in or getting the screen back on, which I thought was a pretty glaring deficiency. What I did like about this video is that it shows you where it's safe to pry the battery.

My Problem

Battery sucked, apple gives you just enough to seem good.

This isn't new.

My Fix

Stressful, the screen and battery were REALLY difficult to take off.

My Advice

The battery is much harder to get out than they say. Good luck.

My Problem

the battery was loosing its charge quickly.

My Fix

It was heart stopping trying to pull the screen free from the case! It took patience and perseverance to get it open after that all was good.

My Advice

I followed the advice in another review. I used a "third hand" to hold the screen at 90 degrees with I carefully pried the old battery out. It worked well and didn't have to mess with the screen connections. If you don't have a friend you can buy a third hand. It looks like a giant tweezer on a heavy base that wants to stay closed. You can use a piece of bubble wrap to protect the screen from the grip of the tweezers. Keep the phone case in line with the screen and position the screen at 90 degrees or less.

My Problem

Three year old iPhone battery not keeping charge. Have to constantly charge it. Once fully charged, it loses power quickly. Have to keep it hooked up to a charger most of the day.

My Fix

Not complicated, but extremely difficult and scary. Watched the tutorial video twice, and read the online guide twice. Difficult because having never done it before, I didn't know what to expect, even going over the directions a few times. You really don't know how it's going to go until you actually do it. The hardest part was removing the screen. That took the most time. After struggling with it quite a while, I was still unable to get the plastic opener tool under the edge to gently pry it off. Eventually, the entire screen just quickly and completely popped up in one fast movement. I'm lucky it didn't pull right off from the phone and break the connectors. Once open, it was pretty easy removing all the screws and actually changing the battery. A tiny little connector next to the battery, that wasn't described in the guide, came up unexpectedly. I don't know what it does, but I just re-connected it. I put the screen back on and closed up the phone, but now the screen isn't *exactly* as flush with the phone edge as it was previously. Not a big deal though.

My Advice

I didn't have a magnetic mat used in the video, so I just did the whole thing on a piece of fabric. That helped keep the microscopic screws from rolling around and getting lost. Still, one of them flew off as I was unscrewing it, but I found it.
