iPhone 4 Battery Replacement

5 - 30 minutes


My Problem

My wife's iPhone wasn't lasting the day with moderate usage, so it was time to replace it.

My Fix

The repair went well. Two things were a bit of an issue. First, your guide needs to call out the proper way to bend the battery connection cable to get it to fit back into the iPhone. Second, I used the plastic opening tool to gently pry out the battery as indicated. It however broke the tip of the tool off and I had to use the other one. They need to be a little more robust, or need a recommendation to use something else.

My Advice

Use the larger plastic opening tool to pry the battery out and bend the battery connector cable to match the existing iPhone battery exactly.
