My Problem

The battery in my iphone 5 was getting weaker and weaker. Even after charging all night, it would usually die before noon and take hours to recharge. It was not really a "mobile" phone any more as I had to keep it plugged in 80% of the time. I decided to try replacing the battery instead of just trashing the phone and buying a new one.

My Fix

My 17 year old son actually did the repair. It took him about 1.5 hours from start to finish. According to him, removing the old battery was a breeze. He felt that the tricky part was getting the phone put back together after the new battery was installed. The first couple of days were slightly disappointing, as the newly installed battery didn't last as long as I had hoped. HOWEVER, I'm pleased to say that after a few charging cycles, the battery seems to have gotten stronger & now lasts all day! Quite an improvement!

My Advice

For $29.95, it's worth it to try a new battery before replacing the entire phone. As a last resort, find a teenager to install it for you! :D

My Problem

My phone was acting up. Crashing, self-rebooting, etc. thought it could be the battery. So, for $25 I thought I'd replace it. iFixit made it easy. Watched the video and CAREFULLY followed the instructions. My phone has new life. Saved $600!

My Problem

iphone 5 bataryasının performansı artık kötüleştiğinden, bataryayı değiştirdim

My Fix

onarım çok güzel geçti. ayrıca konu hakkında bilgi sahibi oldum. bir konuda daha becerim oldu.

My Advice

ürün beklediğimden daha çabuk geldi ve ifixit firması devamlı bana destek oldu, attığım mailler çok sıcak kanlı cevaplar verdiler ve ilgilendiler. aldığım üründende şuan için çok memnunum. telefonun batarya performansı ilk günden daha iyi oldu diyebilirim.

My Problem

The screen on my iphone 5 had gone dead. Except for the home-button-bracket (which was in perfect condition), I decided it would be better to effect a complete replacement of the entire screen assembly. While I was at it, I figured it also would be a good idea to replace the battery.

My Fix

The repair itself went -- everything went off without a hitch, and all works properly. However, there are two maters that require addressing:

1. The covering of the LCD (what most people would call "the screen") has a "loose spot" where it clearly is not attached properly to the LCD. The result of this is that the "loose spot" moves visibly up and down (and makes a clicking sound) when that portion of the covering is pressed. (Side note: I am not entirely certain that the covering of the LCD actually is made of gorilla glass -- I have reason to believe it is made of some type of plastic.)

2. Despite being new, the battery yields talk-time of only between five and six hours. This is the second time I have replaced the battery on this phone (the first time, the battery also was ordered through ifixit), and the first time I did so, the new battery yielded talk-time of around eight hours. The vast discrepancy in quality between the two leads me to believe that there is little in the way of quality control or standards regarding the supplier for ifixit.... and they really need to fixit.

My Advice

Although I was able to attach the home-button-ribbon-cable with just my fingers, it would have been easier with tweezers.

I did not take photos of the process.... just picture an iphone 5, and you will know how everything turned out.

My Problem

Needed a fresh battery.

My Fix

I pulled too hard with the suction cup, and the screen came back too far. One of the ribbons that was attached to the lcd pulled loose. Now I have a black screen. Does not look like something I can easily fix.

My Advice

Will sell it for parts. Next time I will get the better suction cup tool. It was so hard to get the screen loose.

My Problem

The battery in my iPhone 5 had done its job well for 3 years, but, alas, time had taken its toll and the end was near. Rather than prolonging the inevitable, I set the old battery free and replaced it with a new one.

My Fix

The entire procedure took about 20 minutes and was much easier than expected. The tools and instructions provided by ifixit worked perfectly.

My Advice

The screws inside of the iPhone are really tiny. When it comes time to re-install them, a magnetic screwdriver (such as the one sold by ifixit) is essential to hold the screw and put it in the hole where it belongs (unless you happen have fingers roughly equal in diameter to a piece of uncooked spaghetti). Other than that, good lighting and good close-up vision are useful.

My Problem

Bataryamda sorun vardi surekli kapaniyordu.

My Fix

Onarim videosunu izledim ve çok kolay bir sekilde uyguladim.

My Advice

Onarım yapmadan önce mutlaka onarım videosun izleyin ve acele etmeden kolayca değişimi gerçekleştirin.

My Problem

Battery in iPhone was not holding a charge

My Fix

Bought a kit to replace iPhone battery

My Advice

The kit came fast Thank You Jesus! We backed up our iPhone then my husband watched the YouTube video, and wallah.... It was so easzz-Pizzi

My Problem

Battery wouldn't last even an hour.

My Fix

I can't believe I was going to pay $85 for someone to replace the battery in my phone. I bought the kit from iFixIt and when it arrived, very simply swapped the battery out in under five minutes.

My Advice

The package came complete with the tools I'd need and I followed along to their YouTube video. Easy-Peasy!

My Problem

Constant draining of battery. Battery life decrease over time.

My Fix

Took a total of 10 minutes.

My Advice

If your phone is suffering from the same problem, highly recommend replacing your battery.
