My Problem

My daughter severely cracked her iPhone 5s screen and it needed to be replaced. I really don't like spending money when I don't have too and I have replaced 4s screens before so I figured I could tackle this as well.

It went just fine. Take a look at my advice of the bottom of this as it might really help you out. This isn't that difficult, but if you have big hands, poor vision or are prone to throw things when you get frustrated...stop and get someone else to do this for you.

My Fix

I used the iPhone 5s Front Panel replacement guide to follow the repair steps. Great guide, except for the last step!!! As far as iPhones go, this was a little more difficult than the 4s. The cables are a little more difficult to remove and then later reattach. I used the pointed spudger for most of the removals and used the spudger to line up the cables but then my finger to push them into place.

My Advice

Ok, my advice in no particular order:

STEP #25 is not needed!!!! I started to follow this step but it didn't make sense and appeared difficult. I stopped and read comments on the step. I HAVE NO IDEA WHY THIS STEP HAS BEEN LEFT IN THE GUIDE. Ignore it as the cable will tear.

Put down a clean white towel to use as your work surface. Preferably one that isn't fluffy. A t-shirt might work, just make sure it doesn't hang off the edge of the table you are working on. This will keep the screws from bouncing off the table of you drop one.

Use packing tape to tape up the screen before you use the suction cup to remove the screen. Don't tape the home button.

When you pull the screen off the frame, it required more force than I expected, but only pull it apart enough to pry it the rest of the way off. The home button connects to the phone and will tear if the screen comes up more than an inch or so.

There were less screws than I expected. Unlike the 4s, I didn't need to remember where all the screws went...BUT they are all different lengths. Keep them separate. An idea I had after the fact was to use different colored sharpies on the screw heads to color code their length. Mark them BEFORE you remove them for the first time.

I used the protective case to organize the screws and components as I removed them.

This took me about an hour to do. I spent most of my time figuring out step 25 and also removing the broken screen.

Not tough, but some of the cables were difficult to snap back in place. Line them up with a spudger and then press down with your finger to seat the plug. I found you could feel it snap in place if you used your finger.

Be detailed and take your time. Good luck!!!!

My Problem

No problems what so ever.

My Fix

No problems. The instructions are spot on. Take your time and use common sense.

My Advice

I've used ifixit before and very few companies have the level of perfection and support ifixit provides. If it is broken, the first place I come for a fix is here. Hands down. Thanks

My Problem

I bought my iPhone 5s about a year ago, and was on my way to the Mall to buy an Otterbox for it when it fell out of my lap in the parking lot. Barely touched the ground and managed to crack the top left corner, and send a huge crack down the length of the screen. I was still able to use my phone in all this time, but I was growing tired of having to move pictures around to see all the details, not to mention I wasn't interested in upgrading to the 6 just yet. So I ordered the replacement parts here on iFixit.

My Fix

After getting home from my night job around 1am, my package was waiting for me in the mailbox. I took it to my desk, made sure I had plenty of lighting, and read through the entire guide before beginning. The repair was going smoothly, I watched the Video when I came to the ribbon cables, (I couldn't look at the pictures and see an angle to pop them up.) Got all the way through in an hour, booted up the phone and.... Success! I thought. When the phone was about to switch to the lock screen, a bunch of white lines appeared and no manner of pressure would make them go away. So I decided to test the phone and maybe they would go away. I then discovered that I didn't have any touch control over the phone, so after getting a little frustrated, I held the home and lock button to cut the power, reopened the phone, and couldn't see where I went wrong. So I opened the display connectors, popped them off again, and then reconnected them (I actually heard the click from all three this time.) After closing the phone and trying to boot up again.... Nothing. No power, no sound when I plugged it in, no activity from my Macbook when I connected the phone to it. After cursing the phone gods for forsaking me, I resorted to just taking it to the local phone repair place in the morning (It was 4am at this point.) I then left the room, got me a good cold beer, and sat down and watched some stupid videos on Youtube to calm down. After about an hour (And 3 beers) I decided it would be a great idea to go back through the whole re-assembly process (After all, I AM smarter than those idiots at the repair shop.) After reconnecting the display cables, I read in the forums that sometimes you need to disconnect the battery in order to restart the phone. So, not thinking it would work whatsoever, I gave it a try. Disconnected the battery, waited about 30 seconds, reconnected it and reassembled the phone. I then held my breath and prayed to the phone gods when I pressed the power button. I've never been so happy to see that little Apple in the startup screen. Then, just when I'm anticipating the little white lines to do their fade in trick, the phone goes to the lock screen, NO PROBLEMS!! I then swipe to enter my passcode, HOLY S#!T IT WORKED!! After running a few apps to make sure it worked, I decided to lock the phone to test out my Touch ID. AND IT WORKED!! I'm extremely happy with my repair, and I will definitely be ordering more parts to help fix friends and family's iDevices.

My Advice

First off, the iOpener, and iSclack (Not sure how to spell that, I didn't bother buying either) are a luxury. If you can afford them, go for it, if you're on a repair budget like me, you don't need them. A hairdryer on low speed will do just as well as the iOpener, and the suction cup and opening tool they ship in the fix kit will do the job, as long as you get your angle of attack just right.

Secondly, DOUBLE CHECK ALL RIBBON CABLE CONNECTIONS BEFORE PLACEING THE BRACKET!!! This is the one thing that kept me from finishing the repair in the first try. Remember, it's not a race. Do everything right, and you'll prevent headaches and possibly rage induced property damage.

My Problem

The front panel digitizer was shattered. I bought a replacement on iFixit.

My Fix

It went well. The most difficult part was just getting the phone opened.

My Advice

I really recommend using the magnetic mat while you repair your phone. I was disappointed that I couldn't get the iSclacks to work as advertised. The suction cup on the iSclack refused to stay on the screen even with tape over the cracks.

My Problem

Both my wife and myself had cracked the screens on our iPhone 5s (second time for me, these things are just not as sturdy as the old 4). The first time I took it to a repair shop that charged $150 to fix. This time around I decided to do it myself and save some money. Fixed mine first to make sure I was capable and after everything worked ordered the parts to fix my wife's phone.

My Fix

Pretty easy repair. The instructions are ok but if you need more detailed information youtube is full of it. Everything came apart and went back together as it should have.

My Advice

Don't be scared. You aren't doing any fabrication or recreating the wheel. Your just unscrewing little tiny screws and popping off some small ribbon cables. Do be mindful of how everything came apart and try to keep the associated screws with the associated parts.

The hardest part is getting the phone open but a razor blade helps to pry it open. All the instructions make it sound as if the ribbon cables are going to rip apart with the slightest touch but that is a bit of an exaggeration. They are small and I imagine more fragile than your standard computer ribbons but so long as you aren't hamfisted and jerking things around you should be fine. For me the hardest part was getting the phone opened but a razor blade used for the initial prying was very helpful. Once everything has been transferred over to the new screen but before you snap it back into place I would suggest turning the phone on and making sure everything is working as it should.

After fixing two phones I will soon be ordering new screens for the old 4s as back up. And should anything else need repairing on my phone I now know I am fully capable of doing the job. I would suggest the basic tool kit as it includes everything you need to get the job done.

Good luck and remember if small Chinese kids can assemble it you can too.

My Problem

my iPhone 5s was 18 months old, and the touch screen had about 20% dead areas. I took it to the Apple Store and they recommended a screen and digitizer replacement for about $130 and that may or may not solve the problem.

My Fix

I have repaired and/or upgraded my apple computers for years, so checked IFixit to see how hard this would be. Medium difficulty? so why not try. I waited until Saturday morning to try it, so I could still have the phone for work, and that was good, it took nearly an hour for me with my 65 year old eyes (I had to use my wife's 'reading glasses" to see the tiny parts, and slowly took each step at a time. I laid out a large white sheet of paper to put all the parts, and wrote the "step #" next to the parts.

My Advice

definitely organize your work area, have plenty of light and allow enough time so you don't feel rushed.

My Problem

I cracked my phone screen when I slipped down a small hill and used it to break my fall. Since it was out of warranty Apple wanted $130 to repair it. Decided to take a shot myself

My Fix

Not bad. The only trouble I had was removing the ambient light sensor. I failed to notice that it is a small box attached to the flat side of a particular ribbon cable. Ended up snapping it off and will have to replace that part at some point.

My Advice

Pay special attention to Step 23. Very gently lift up on that cable, the sensor is attached to the flat face of it.

My Problem

I let my phone fall from the top of the refrigerator after setting it there while pouring cereal. The bottom right corner had cracked on the face and eventually it worked its way to the bottom left as well.

My Fix

About seventy minutes with my wife watching TV in the background. The entire time I was nervous and worried that I might break into a sweat and fry some component.

My Advice

The guide and the video separately are not enough to do the replacement, you need both to make the whole process of disassembly work.

My Problem

Display started off with one (1) single horizontal line in the middle. it increased on a daily basis until after about 10 days, the screen was completely blank.

My Fix

As a first timer at phone repairs, it took me about an hour to take apart and re-assemble phone. Smartphone repair kit was excellent, no regrets buying this whatsoever. I was abit scared to use the suction cup cuz i wasnt sure what would happen when i started pulling it apart, but it worked quite well (will get an iSlack soon enough) The most trouble i got was connecting some of the cables and the front camera/sensor bit. Other than that, easy as pie !!

I have a 4s cracked display and home button to fix in the near future....

I shall return for parts !!! Might even add this to my list of services that i offer (feeling like a pro)

My Advice

Just follow the step by step guide and have patience when re-connecting cables. If you have the Smartphone repair kit, use the tray slots for screws and small parts going from left to right with steps 1, 2, 3 etc.

My Problem

Massive cracking on the front panel glass.

My Fix

Previously had done a 4S glass replacement, and this was much more involved. I'm a little clumsy on the small scale, so I was surprised when it all clicked back together and actually still worked!

My Advice

If you have the fix it box, use the individual compartments the screw drivers come in (there's about 4 on either side) to put the individual screw lengths as you take them out, it is important you put them back in reverse order!
