Delicate job, but not difficult

iPhone 4S Battery Replacement

10 - 30 minutes


My Problem

My wife's iPhone 4s battery life was decreasing, so I decided to replace the battery in hers and mine.

My Fix

The iFixIt instructions were clear and correct. The liberation kit (included with the battery, thanks!!!) contained everything I needed. The only minor hitch was that I hadn't noticed where the small ground clip went. The photo for this step could be enhanced a bit to highlight the part. However, in the end I believe I did reinstall it correctly.

My Advice

The instructions state that you should clean the interior as grease/oils from your hands can cause wireless interference. I decided to avoid the issue by wearing rubber gloves (the thin kind used in doctor's offices) while changing the battery.
