iPhone 4S Battery Replacement

45 minutes


My Problem

Recent media reports, plus the battery would lose its charge quickly

My Fix

Your videos encouraged me to attempt this. The 000 screwdriver was a bit too pointed, so I filed the tip. Your videos didnt clearly show how the grounding contact should fit (it did pop out as cautioned in the videos), but I figured it out. Having a magnifying glass available really helped me.

The phone now holds a charge "as new". I am very pleased!

My Advice

Patience, a positive attitude, maybe a second person as observer/coach...

I get ridiculed for still having a 4S, but it works for me!

Tip: check how the ground clip is orientated before you remove the screw that holds it down.
