My Problem

Battery swollen and home button inoperable due to bend in touchscreen.

My Fix

Using my iFixit tool kit and the directions from the website, everything went of without a hitch

My Advice

If this is your first go at replacing a battery, take your time epically with a swollen battery. The one I changed out ruptured during the removal process.

My Problem

I was having the regular issue where the phone would shut down when the battery showed ~50%

My Fix

I followed the tutorial and it was a breeze. Didn't need to remove the screen. That, right there, saved me a ton of time cause those screws are teenzy weenzy.

My Advice

DON'T REMOVE SCREEN. All you have to do is get yourself a rubberband, turn the iFixit box around and tie the rubberband and the top flap of the box together. It will want to close and the screen will want to close...voila, a perfect 90 degree angle and enough tension to keep it there for the remainder of the repair.

My Problem

The original batteries in my wife's phone and my own would no longer hold a reliable charge, leaving us heavily reliant on external batteries and car chargers. Our phones would no longer make it more than half an hour of consistent use before being drained.

My Fix

The repair was very straightforward with use of the online repair guide. Tools were very handy as well. The only real problem I had was when my wife accidentally hit the tray I was storing the extremely small screws on, leaving us with a needle in a haystack search for no less than half an hour.

My Advice

Be careful with the small hardware. Not only is it difficult to deal with, its hard to find when you lose it!

My Problem

Battery was failing...

My Fix

Very easy - watch the video and you'll be fine.

My Advice

Don't be scared - you got this!

My Problem

Classic iPhone 5 battery problems. My phone wouldn't hold a charge, or would randomly drop to 30% at times.

My Fix

I used a kitchen knife magnet with blue tape along one side to keep track of the pieces and stages. I used screenshots of the instructions on my iPad while I took the phone apart. It went surprisingly well, and was my first time repairing a device.

My Advice

There are FOUR connectors keeping the screen attached to the body. One is hidden under another. The photos in the instructions only show three. Stay calm, be patient, and label each piece as you remove it.

My Problem

I noticed my screen was separated from the main part of the phone. Discovered that my battery swelled. I mean, I have had the phone for 4 years, so something was bound to happen.

My Fix

The repair was extremely easy. I had it done in about 15 minutes.

My Advice

Follow instructions and if you don't understand those, the videos on the website helps a lot.

My Problem

Bulging, original battery

My Fix

Nice and easy for me. My old, bulging battery had already started popping the case, so the hardest part was already done. I think it took me about 15 minutes.

My Advice

Just follow the guide to the letter and you'll do fine.

My Problem

My battery did not last more than 12 hours.

My Fix

Very well. The first full charge lasted more than 24 hours.

My Advice

Use blade to get the screen to pop out.

My Problem

My battery was dying within 30 minutes of a full charge

My Fix

It was easy, fast, and the phone worked great because of the easy to follow, step-by-step video.

My Advice

Make sure to allow the new battery to run down to 10% and then fully charged it to 100% to calibrate it.

My Problem

The battery died.

My Fix

It went good.

I had some problems taking out the screen but I did it at the end.

My Advice

Be careful to take out the screen.
