My Problem

My iPhone 6 was going down the tube; the battery was shot, and the cellular broadband controller was slowly degrading (a known issue, the solder joints fail).

My Problem

The old battery was ridden hard and put up wet on many occasions, and barely lasted through the work day anymore, let alone into the evening.

Mostly well, with a couple exceptions:

My Problem

Battery capacity less than 1/2 original

My Fix

Screen removal with blue pry tool and suction cup was easy, no risk of damage to the home button cable. Battery adhesive broke and I neglected to read the step by step guide so prying it out was tough.

Had trouble getting the sticky tape off the battery for removal, it actually snapped and had to slowly pry battery out.

Battery wasn't holding a charge. Hard to charge twice a day.

My Problem

Battery was very old. Would hold charge for maybe 20 minutes and drop to 16-28%

Very simple. Removed the front face and heated the back of the phone with a hair dryer to soften the glue. Removed and replaced battery with no issues.

The battery on my sister's iPhone 5S was shot... it could only hold 50% of it's original charge capacity.

My Fix

Smooth... well written guide.

My Advice

DON'T TUG SUPER HARD WHEN IT'S TIME TO SUCTION CUP THE SCREEN!!!

My Problem

The phone was stuck in DFU mode and refused to be restored by iTunes (yielded several different errors). Some research online indicated that using 3rd party chargers or car chargers may cause this situation, which my wife had done. So, I decided to get the kit to attempt to power cycle the iPhone . . .
