My Problem

We are glad we held on to the older iPhone models when we upgraded, because all of the latest gadgets and toys all need iPhones to pair to. In this case, a new Cozmo robot from Anki that one of our kids got for Christmas. It's a great piece of tech and a lot of fun to learn and play with, except . . .

My Problem

I took my iPhone 5 into the Apple Store because the battery wasn't holding a charge. First the guy tried to tell me the board was fried since I was having problems powering up. (He sees it all the time...) When he was able to power up, he reluctantly agreed I needed a new battery instead of a new ph . . .

My Problem

Old phone, old battery.

My Fix

Straightforward. Screws are pretty small. But only 7 of them total. I used the tweezers to put them in place when putting everything back together. They didn't sit quite right on the magnetic bit.

My Advice

Using the single suction cup, place the phone flat on the table, glass up. U . . .

My Problem

Old battery was discharging quickly.

My Advice

Not necessary to disconnect 3 cables for the display or the connector guard.

My Problem

Phone was starting to go blank and reboot. Battery needed recharging twice a day.

My Fix

Piece of cake. Read all the comments, followed the steps in the guide.

My Advice

Don't disconnect the face, just support it. Just disconnect the battery. I (gently) pried up on the battery from the case side in four places along i . . .

Im not sure if it fixed the problem yet (having more then half a charge and having the phone turn off when I'm out in the cold weather) but time will tell.

My Fix

The battery swap was a snap. Your repair kit was great, the tools included made short and precise work of the repair. Thank You!

My Problem

Battery was not holding a charge. Even after removing any apps running in the back ground, the battery life would drain quickly.

My Fix

Other than making sure I did not lose the tiny screws, it went extremely smooth. Total process took about an hour. Tool kit supplied had everything I needed. Followed t . . .

My Problem

I guess Apple wrecked my phone, but declined to offer a low cost fix because my phone is too old (7 years! -- when did that get to be old?) Accidentally ran across your offer and decided it was worth a try.

My Fix

Your instructions were spot on -- thanks for that. I did manage to lose the fly speck sized . . .

My Problem

It was recommended to speed the phone up.

My Fix

Went very well. One day I'll find the worlds smallest screw that I lost. Fortunately the other 2 screws held fine.

My Advice

Watch the screws they are extremely small.

My Problem

My phone kept shutting off. It would say I have 80% battery left and when I would go to use it, down it would go dead battery. However, if you plug it in you suddenly have 50-60% battery at least for a few minutes then off again.

My Fix

The repair was simple. I watched the video once. Then I pulled up t . . .
