My Problem

My battery only lasted about 30 mins and had to be constantly charged.

My Fix

It went well very easy to follow along guide. The first one the sent me the battery didn't work, so I put my old one back in and the sent me a new one. When I received that one it worked out wonderfully very pleased with the product'

My Advice

Make sure to replace the top plate correctly, really pay attention to how it fits. If you don't reinstall correctly the screen won't close correctly again. Just take your time!

My Problem

My battery was at fifty percent original capacity, and would show e.g. a two percent charge remaining, and when I started charging it, it would show a much higher charge. Also, at times the phone would shut down while showing maybe a twenty to fifty percent charge.

My Fix

Once I got the front panel off, and removed the battery, everything was very easy. I tried for at least forty five minutes to pull the front panel off with the suction cup I received with my repair kit, but it wouldn't budge. After reading user suggestions, I inserted a razor blade into the bottom left corner of the panel and was able to pry it up easily. The panel then lifted off easily with the plastic device in the kit. The battery wouldn't budge from the phone, but again, user suggestions came to the rescue. I blew hot air from a hair dryer on the back of the phone briefly, and the battery pulled up easily. I was able to get it all back together quickly and the phone works great.

My Advice

I was told in the fixit instructions that pulling the front panel up with the suction cup took persistent, steady effort. I was persistent and steady, and for some time, but it still wouldn't budge. The razor blade I used did the trick. Also, my battery was really stuck to the phone, so heating the back finally got it loose. I might add that I didn't remove the front panel all the way from the phone, as indicated in the video and the online instructions. So I was saved some unscrewing and difficulty. I held the panel with my left hand while working with my right. And finally, I printed out the online instructions and where pictures of the screws to be removed appeared, I placed tape with two-sided adhesive, and then put each screw on the adhesive over the picture of the screw. The screws didn't move around after removal, and I knew exactly which screw went where.

My Problem

My iphone5 screen was popping out on the left side and this created a discoloration on my screen whenever I press on it. After taking it to the apple store, they told me my battery has swollen, and it would have cost me $300 to repair the phone with them. I decide to fix it myself.

My Fix

I looked at the iFixit guide on how to replace the battery and watched the youtube video. The instructions were very clear and straightforward. I followed each step and were able to replace my battery in 30 min. Now my screen is nice and flat again and its as good as new again.

My Advice

Reassembling is more difficult. The guard over the screen connection has to be slide in a little from the left.

My Problem

My iPhone 5 was having real difficulties holding its charge. It would take about an hour to go from 100% to 20%, and if I turned it off with a full charge, it wouldn't turn back on unless I plugged it in. So clearly something needed to be done!

My Fix

The repair went very smoothly. Apart from one of the screws from inside the phone which didn't seem to accept magnetism as part of its world view, making it very difficult to get that tiny screw back in at the end, nothing went wrong, and there was nothing spectacular to report!

My Advice

I've read other comments which already say this, but it's worth reiterating: the battery is stuck on with industrial adhesive and takes some real work to get it off (in some cases). Be patient, take your time and make sure you pay attention to the instructions about where you can "pry" the battery, because there are some areas of the phone that can get damaged if you push, pull or otherwise touch the wrong place.

My Problem

My son's iPhone 5 was having battery problems and turning off every few minutes.

My Fix

I wasn't in the area when the shipment arrived so my son decided to use the tutorial to make the repair. He is 17 with no previous technical repair experience. He successfully completed the work in under 40 minutes.

My Advice

Just follow the repair guide carefully and you'll be fine. I do suggest reading through the entire repair tutorial before beginning and use a system to keep track of the order you removed the parts. I tape a piece of paper to the table and draw in numbered squares.

My Problem

My iPhone 5 battery was draining quickly and going from 50% to 20% and then would die.

My Fix

The battery replacement was easy with the kit from iFixit. I just had to make sure that I worked slow and carefully as to not rip a ribbon cable in the process.

My Advice

Just take it slow and carefully and you won't have any problems. Make sure you don't press down the suction cup too hard on the LCD or you might have problems.

My Problem

After about 2 years of hard use and too much time on the charger, my iPhone 5 battery stopped holding a charge. Over about 2 weeks it went very quickly from having an annoyingly short life to being useless. All I needed was a new battery.

My Fix

Success on the first attempt! The whole process took me about 35 minutes. Disclaimer: I am an electrical engineer with a lot of hands-on electronics experience. But this was the most delicate thing I have ever worked on. You won't believe how tightly things are packed in there!

There were 3 tricky parts: opening the iPhone; dealing with the small and delicate connectors inside; and getting the old battery out. In all cases my worry was out of proportion to the actual outcome. With the provided suction cup and some harder-than-I-liked pulling, the phone came open. Brace your hands as you pull. Mine came apart kind of suddenly and it would have been easy to pull the screen part too far away from the battery part. That could be a disaster for the cables. More on the connectors and battery in the Enlightenment section.

My Advice

The connectors in the phone are incredibly small and delicate. Take your time. When putting them back, alignment is critical. Do not try to force them in place. I had to play with them for a few minutes (literally 4 or 5 minutes) but once they lined up they connected up just fine and it was pretty clear that they were well seated. There is not a lot of tactile feedback, though. You need good light, maybe a magnifier like I used, and patience. Look from all sides as you line things up. It helps a lot. Use the plastic prying tool, even when putting things back together.

It took some effort to get my old battery loose. The adhesive was doing its job very well. Do not force it. Use steady pressure and move from pry point to pry point. Don't try to get it loose from only one pry point.

Putting everything back together was much easier than taking it apart!

There are tabs at the top of the iPhone 5 screen portion. When re-assembling, put the tab side in first. When you get it right, the end with the home button will pop right in without too much pressure. DON'T FORCE ANYTHING. When properly aligned, things pretty much drop into place.

My Problem

The whole front was separating from the phone due to the battery swelling up. Thought I would have to replace my phone! I heard about this fix it so thought it would be worth a shot

My Fix

The tools needed and directions were simple. With in 10 minutes my new battery was in and my phone was good as new.

My Advice

When you are told you can't fix it-- at least do a bit of research. You might be surprised! I was very happy to not have to spend the money on a new phone right now!!!

My Problem

After being dropped, the phone was completely dead unless connected to the charger. With the charger, it went from blank, to the charging screen, to the apple screen, in an endless loop.

My Fix

Without a hitch. The new battery solved it.

My Advice

I didn't have suction cups. I don't recommend it, but you can get an iPhone 5 open by putting a tiny screwdriver between the screen and the frame, at the end where the 2 screws have been removed, and gently prying up.

My Problem

My battery was almost dead. I had 12% health left. I saved almost $240 (if I bring my phone to Apple Store I would pay around $260).

My Fix

The repair went so smooth. I couldn't believe it.

My Advice

I just followed the video on YouTube. Here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sQqPm3Lm...
