How to replace the battery in your iPhone 5s

30 minutes


My Problem

The battery was old.

My Fix

The repair was really straightforward, EXCEPT the for removing the battery adhesive!!

My Advice

I had to heat the phone to soften the adhesive (it's a cold 65 in our house), after the tabs broke off—like many others. Then I pried it with the prying tool very carefully. START FROM THE CORNERS. The battery was really bent up, but it went pretty quick. Heating really helps.
