My Problem

Replaced iPhone 5 battery because it was going down too fast.

My Fix

Your brief video and the tool kit made it a piece of cake. Sure pleased that a friend told me about your fine firm.

My Advice

Advice: First, watch the video. Then, replace the battery as you go through the video the second time. It could not be easier. The USPS package tracking worked very well, also.

My Advice

>.<) hard!

My Problem

Upgraded my phone to 6 plus so I gave my flawless 32G i5 to my wife to upgrade her from her sketchy 16G i5. Her old phone would do all kinds of weird things, plus the memory was full, so no music, no more pictures etc.

Moved everything over for her and placed in her thin case that she has been using for years. Less than 24 hours later, she got out of the car with the phone in her lap and bam, it hit the concrete on the corner shattering the glass. She doesn't get an upgrade for another 6 months so this seemed to be the best solution. Plus the battery needed to be replaced anyway, so did it all.

My Fix

A little intimidating at first, but after reading the instructions and user comments it went pretty smoothly. Ordered both the full display kit and the battery. Used some good reading glasses to help with a bit of magnification, laid everything out on a white towel, spaced apart with the screws laid out like where they were removed from. Removing the battery required a bit of patience, but by prying in the 3 selected areas in the instructions over and over again, it started to work its way loose. So glad I bought the full display for a couple dollars more, so i didn't have to deal with more potential issues.

My Advice

Magnifying glasses, white towel to layout, lots of light, time and patience. Buy the fully assembled display kit. Take your time with the ribbon cables as the alignment and reseating isn't always perfect.

BAM, like a new phone again!!

My Problem

My iPhone 5 wasn't making it a full day without a recharge

My Fix

The repair was a piece of cake after watching the videos on the website.

My Advice

Make sure you have a good pair of glasses or perfect vision. The screws are tiny.

My Problem

Battery could not hold a charge anymore, needed a new one. Phone would often shut down in cold and when battery was not drained

My Fix

Was easy to take apart, harder to get back together.

My Advice

Some of the tiny screws to each section are different. Pay attention to which screws go where in each section. Also do not force any connectors together. They should easily snap in place. They need to be completely flush together. Had to wear magnifying lense to see things.

My Problem

A family member had recently upgraded to an iPhone 6 and passed their iPhone 5 down to me. The phone was only a few years old and in excellent condition but just didn't seem to hold a charge. I would fully charge it and over a period of a day in just standby mode it would drain the battery away till it shut down by the next day, the phone would also shut down around 15%.

So I knew without a doubt the phone would need a new battery to hold a charge again. After browsing the web and doing some research I came across a YouTube repair video that featured the iFixit kit. This kit seemed like the perfect deal and would have everything I'd need to do the repair myself so I gladly purchased one.

My Fix

The repair went off without a hitch, I had already seen the one video on YouTube and I also watched the repair video here on iFixit which was the most helpful between the two. The overall repair time was probably between 10-15 minutes and I had no issues throughout the repair.

My Advice

My advice for the repair is to get a small dish or something you can place the screws and plates inside of after removing them so you don't lose any. Also when trying to separate the screen from the base I suggest cleaning the screen and removing all grease from it before sticking the suction cup to it, and to get the suction cup positioned as close to the home button as possible. While lifting on the suction cup you should see the bottom of the screen lift some, gently insert your plastic opening tool below the home button and give it a gentle pry the screen should start to give way. Once you get the bottom to start coming apart I simply took the plastic opening tool while keeping tension on the suction cup and gently slid it around the screen and it came right apart for me. As the iFixit repair video shows I found it a huge help to disconnect the screen from the base and set it aside so you don't have to worry about damaging the connections. When you go to remove the battery it's definitely a pain with how tough that glue is, as shown in the iFixit video I used the 3 areas they mentioned to pry at. Once you've loosened it up some you should be able to pry in the upper right section with your plastic opening tool and while keeping your plastic opening tool pressed firmly against the battery gently push in an upward direction and you should start to hear/feel the battery separating from the glue.

My Problem

My iPhone 5 wasnt working well for awhile. Ended up fiinding out it was the battery. I wanted an affordable easy way to fix it so thought I'd do it myself. Watched some videos on YouTube and came across ifixit. At the end of the video I was like "I'm going to get that kit and replace the battery myself so I did.

My Fix

The repair was awesome. Not only was it cheaper then I thought but delivery was fast and it easy to replace. It was my first time and I did it in under a few minutes.

My Advice

I highly recommend replacing your iPhone 5 battery with the ifixit starter kit battery replacement. And trust me the tools it comes with is all you need.

My Problem

iPhone battery lost its get up and go.

My Fix

Fine. 15 minutes.

My Advice

This is my third replacement of iPhone 5 battery. I'm getting good at.

My Problem

A few years ago while cradling my iPhone 5 between my neck and shoulder, I got a bit cocky with my technique and while opening a door, the phone fell and the screen shattered. At that time I thought of iPhones as largely disposable items but this time it hurt as I was only about 6 months into a contract on this phone. I ended up holding on to it for a while thinking I could either fix of sell it.

A few months went by and I purchased a new car that had an iPod interface. I thought great- I don't need a screen for this so I will load my music library on it and use it stashed away in my glove box. This worked great except for 3 things. Alarms set for 7:30, 11:30 and 3pm. I Don't know why I had 3 alarms active on the day I dropped my phone but I sure did regret doing that! I figured out a work around through my cars audio interface that would shut it off- so long as I was in the car when it happened. I worried that a passerby would hear my glove box rattling and get "curious" about it's contents. About 30% of the screen/digitizer worked so I spent some time desperately trying to get in the clock app and disabling the alarm. I was successful on one but the other 2 remained. About this time I noticed the fall had kinda popped the whole screen assembly from the back of the phone. I spent a few minutes with a pry tool and voila! It popped off. At that point I plugged it into my Mac and saw it was still alive, iFixit was the first thing that popped in my mind at that point and I immediately ordered a replacement screen and battery.

My Fix

The repair was pretty straightforward I had the right phillips bits to remove the tiny screws shown in your handy guide. Swapping the battery and inserting the new screen on their respective contacts was quick and for the most part pretty easy. I had trouble getting one to line up but it finally went. At this point I crossed my fingers and turned the phone on. When I saw the apple I did a happy dance and waited to make sure the digitizer worked. I could swipe and tap woo hoo!! At this point the screen was still off the body so I could reseat connections as necessary. I pressed the home button, nothing... Uh oh. Then I not the two contacts for the home button at the bottom of the case. So I reached for my pentalobe screwdriver that I thought was included in my "Apple screwdriver kit" (purchased at a local chain) and realized it's not there. I immediately pulled up I fix it and placed the order. Some remnants of the old screen assembly are still attached to the 2 screws by the lightning connection so once I get those removed I think I will be in business. Either way it was surprisingly easy to do especially since dropping the phone did the hard part of removing the screen assembly for me. :)

My Advice

I think I would have read the repair manuals prior to ordering the supplies from iFixit, would have saved me a second order had I read through and compared with my screwdriver set. I will say that fixing broken idevices is a completely viable option for me now and I have an iPad mini with a cracked screen on deck!

My Problem

I was having to charge my iPhone 5 three to four times a day. I had all but give but given up, even considered paying for a new iPhone. I did t have anything to lose and after some research I went with the iFixit.

My Fix

Ordered the battery Tuesday and had at the house by Friday. Read the included directions and 15 minutes later it was done! That simple. The first charge lasted from Saturday morning until Sunday afternoon. It's better than new!

My Advice

Don't hesitate, Just iFixit.
