My Problem

Battery was just dead; iPhone was working for only a day.

My Fix

I forgot to unscrew the screen and ended up damaging it; had to buy a new one. But the battery was fine and overall the process is very easy.

My Advice

Just be careful and if something does not go easily don't push hard. Try to look around before applying more pressure.

My Problem

The battery in my daughter's phone was going bad; showing 80% and then dropping to 30% over a 2 minute span.

My Fix

It went well. I'm glad I read that you didn't need to remove the three video cables if you felt comfortable supporting the screen while disconnecting and replacing the battery. The less cables I need to disconnect and reconnect, the better.

My Advice

Don't remove the video cables like it shows in the video. Have somebody hold the screen at a less-than-90-degree angle while you swap out the battery.

My Problem

Battery was bulging, and the screen had started to lift away from the rest of the phone

My Fix

Great.

My Advice

Don't wait for the screen to bend to the point of eminent failure. Long before then you'll notice the screen has a discoloration where the battery presses into it. That's the first sign you're gonna need to act.

My Problem

Battery wasn't holding its charge.

My Fix

I had ordered a battery replacement from another company first, and the battery didn't work. Then I found iFixit and everything worked as it should have. I would definitely use your company again.

My Advice

Have a clean workspace.

My Problem

No battery life. Apple would not fix it since it was a refurbished.

My Fix

When battery arrived, my wife installed it herself following youtube instructions. I was pleasantly surprised she decided to take on the replacement herself.

My Advice

Zero recharge cycles and a like-new working phone.

My Problem

My iPhone 5 has been unable to keep a reliable charge. I am have not been sold on the new handsets on the market and thought I would try to extend the life of this device. So far, that appears to be an accurate statement.

My Fix

It was really easy with the iFixit Tutorial. I did purchase the tool kit so having the pry tool made the process feel much more safe.

My Advice

There were two things that I think were missing from the tutorial.

1. There is a plastic bracket that surrounds the touch screen. Due to the age of my device the plastic bracket was separating from the actual screen towards the bottom. When prying and unclipping the screen from the base, be sure to pry from under the plastic bracket.

2. When reassembling the screen, you must install the screen top first by laying the screen in the rear case and sliding up to the top of the rear case. Not doing this will result in the phone screen not seating properly in the rear case when it is closed.

My Problem

The battery on my iPhone 5 was getting weak. When battery life was down to 20%, it was only a question of a few minutes before it went totally dead. Battery life on fully charged was about 4 hours. So I decided to replace it.

My Fix

The repair is quite easy, I had replaced the screen earlier, so I kinda knew what I was getting into. The switch went great, just be careful not to lose those tiny screws.

My Advice

The new battery last almost a full day now, it is not as good as a new original battery, but it comes pretty close.

My Problem

Replacing old iPhone 5 battery

My Fix

The direction was simple to follow. Removed and replaced old battery only took a few minutes.

My Advice

Use the hair dryer to loosen the adhesive from the battery. Try not to break the plastic tab.

My Problem

My old battery life was only 2/3 hours.

My Fix

Very easy. The new battery lasts a full day.

My Advice

I heated the back before lifting the screen. I did not remove the screen. I just held it up while changing the battery.

My Problem

Low battery

My Fix

Easy to change with the ifixit provided tools

My Advice

Don't buy ifixit battery. I had a yello gold cheap iphone battery before the ifixit and the gold one kept better charge.
