My Problem

Battery was running down from a full charge to zero within a few hours with minimal use. Almost bought a g*d d*mn new phone.

My Fix

Super easy repair. Took about 10-15 minutes right at my work desk. I have experience with general repairs both in the home and with cars so I was prepared for how these things go together, with the caveat that I was determined to be a lot more gentle with this device than with a front brake caliper.

My Advice

I didn't remove the screen. Just tilted it up and kept it supported as necessary by using my wrist or the top of the screwdriver. There's a small wire next to where the battery plugs in that came undone when I removed my battery (it's pretty gluey so I fussed with it a bit more). This wire needs to be plugged into the small "hole" or receptor just below and to the right of the battery connector. Just make sure you haven't jostled it lose while working and reconnect it with a "snap" if you have.

My Problem

My battery wouldn't hold a charge

My Fix

It was very easy

My Advice

There were steps in the instructions which were not necessary

My Problem

Altering battery percentages/phone shutting down long before 20%/after shutting down, not coming on until around 30%

My Fix

Quick and easy, 15 mins per phone

My Advice

Use a blow dryer on the front and back of the phone when it's open to help the battery release from the glue strips. (My phone is around 27 months old and left out in freezing weather in the winter as I can't take it into work) My phone I had to peel one off the original battery and place it back in the frame of the phone. The other phone was a refurbished phone through a Verizon replacment plan and the battery had been replaced once already because it wasn't a Sony battery (cheap $10 battery off eBay is what I guessed, probably why here was giving her issues) and it fell out with no heat

My Problem

I got my iPhone 5 back in 2012. For the last 8 months, my battery would last on standby for about six hours. If I was using the phone for any function, that battery usage lasted about an hour. Obviously, the battery storage life was shot. My phone, via the Apple website, was actually eligible, by serial number, for a free repair/replacement of the phone; however, this would have taken going to an Apple store (30 miles away) and they would have the device for a "few days." IFIXIT prices made it worth it to do myself.

My Fix

The repair was seamless and effortless. There was more effort in backing my phone and app purchases up to my iTunes account than there actually was in replacing the battery. Total replacement time.... <10 minutes.

My Advice

The initial phase of prying the screen off by the home button was the most difficult. After removing the pentolope screws, the space provided by pulling up with the suction cup is minuscule, but do not be afraid to get the pry tool in there and pry up. Once the initial end is open, the rest of the top comes off easly. Lastly, if this is the original battery being replaced, be prepared for the battery to be stuck to the case with adhesive strips.

My Problem

My batter was 2 years old, it died after an hour or two of use.

My Fix

Repair went good! (Kinda) when re assembling I didn't notice something came loose and I cracked my screen in a non-vital spot, live and learn right? Battery is great and all else is fine!

My Advice

It's easy and definitly worth it!

My Problem

I've had my iPhone 5 for about a year and half now and the battery was starting the go. It would drain quickly and suddenly jump from 89% to 40% to 2%, then back up to 30% and shut off right then and there. It was time for a new battery.

My Fix

The only way for me to see the directions was on my phone, so I had to memorize the steps and then shut off my phone to do the deed. Using the suction cup was the most difficult part because I wasn't sure how much pressure to apply without breaking it and wasn't sure what to expect. The magnetized microscopic-size screws were challenging to work with, but I finished the whole process in about 30 minutes.

My Advice

Take some deep breaths while you're doing this, I got super stressed and my hands starting shaking so badly from super concentration that I had to put down the screwdriver for a minute to calm down again.

My Problem

The original battery was not working properly, also the power, audio cable was a mess. Apple had a recall on this problems. I checked apple site with my iphone serial number and I was included in the recall. I sent my i5 to apple and they contacted me saying I need to pay $250, and I ask them that what was the recall about then if they were going to charge me. They could not give me an answer. Since I have already got an i6, I've decided to do the repair my self. That's when I found ifixit.

My Fix

Every thing went well since this is not my first time to open an iphone.

My Advice

Pay attention to the screw sizes when taking the Iphone apart.

My Problem

I slipped getting out of my pickup and landed directly onto my Iphone. This shattered the screen. I was also having trouble with the battery keeping a charge for more than a few hours. Decided if I needed a new screen that I might as well replace the battery as well.

My Fix

The repair was a little frustrating. This is the second screen I have purchased from Ifixit so I already new how to replace the screen. I went through all the steps, replaced the screen and replaced the battery. Went to turn on the unit and nothing worked! Thinking I did something wrong I removed all the screws holding the everything together and did the process a second time--same results--nothing worked! I then decided to charge the battery overnight and see if that cured the problem. Again--no luck!! Once again I cracked open the phone and replaced my new battery with the old battery that I just removed. And then the phone worked! I had received a faulty new battery from Ifixit. I called the 800 number for customer service and no PROBLEMS. They handled my issue with CLASS and sent me a new battery overnight delivered and I received it next day! Fabulous customer service. Put the new battery in and everything works great now. Way to go--one happy customer!

My Advice

Don't worry about doing this yourself. Easy fix!

My Problem

Battery drain/drop; didn't qualify for replacement battery through Apple

My Fix

Success - but it was challenging; and tool included wasn't best to pry up delicate parts; lots of force needed to get battery out. It took about 20 minutes or so, with another person assisting with directions.

My Advice

Don't be afraid to use good force when pulling old battery out (look at edits/comments for additional help)

My Problem

Battery was down to half the life.

My Fix

Went well, getting the screen separated from the case was a lot harder than I thought it would be. But after working on who know how many laptops and desktop computers replacing everything in them before, this was not bad at all.

My Advice

Keep at it with separating the two main pieces, it is by far the hardest part. Otherwise if you are comfortable at all with taking things apart you can do this easily.
