My Problem

shattered iP6 screen

My Fix

You know, the suction cup will not attach to a shattered screen! The hardest part was seating the 4 teensy connectors back into their sockets. And yes, moving the home button to the replacement part requires very, very careful movements. Just a bit disappointed that the replacement part is a tiny bit thicker than the original, and slightly sticks out past the curved edge of the iPhone.

My Advice

Found out after my DIY repair, that I could have saved about $50 USD by making an appointment and taking it to the Apple Store.

My Problem

Broken Screen

My Fix

Straight forward. Worked the first time.

My Advice

Use a clean white area like a anti-static mat. A head magnifier helps. The assembly requires patience as the screws are very small and hard for the average person to work with.

My Problem

My phone would only keep a charge for 2 hours and would go dead. My home button had to be pressed several times to work.

When I saw the ifixit website and how easy the instructions were to repair, I thought I need to try this.

My Fix

The repair went great! The instructions were given step-by-step and were so easy to follow. The tools that I order were very inexpensive and worth the purchase. I now have a phone that will last me a lot longer and I paid a fraction of would it would have cost to do an insurance claim or send it somewhere to be fixed.

My Advice

Watch the instructions carefully before you start the step-by-step process. Make sure the screws that you take out are put on a piece of paper that is labeled as to where you took these screws out. That way you will not get mixed up to which screws go where.

My Problem

This was a gift phone from our kids to use on their plan; the battery life was very short.

My Fix

Easy and thanks to your guides.

My Advice

First, the suction cup method would NOT work for me; I used a sharp blade and the cover popped right up. Second, I used two small strips of duct tape to ensure the top would not fly open and tear the video cables; did not need them but hearing the stories of others.... Third, I used a hair dryer on low to loosen the battery glue from the backside and the battery lifted right off using the pull tab. Fourth, getting the battery cable back on actually took quite a bit of time. Fifth, when I put the cover back on, I turned the phone over and put the glass side down and pressed it together that way as some said they broke the glass doing it the other way.

The phone is charging right now and works fine; I checked it all out before putting it on charge. I think the battery was like 50% charged when I turned the phone on.

The magnetic mat really is handy to keep all the screws in their proper places.

Thanks ifixit!

My Problem

Sister dropped it on the sidewalk and made the touch screen unusable, with no upgrade eligibility for 4 months the cost of the repair was the right choice.

My Fix

pretty straight forward, accidentally made a screw go flying but I found it lol

My Advice

Take your time when removing the camera , also heating up its adhesive makes it a lot easier to peel away without tearing.

My Problem

Battery became first inaccurate, then slowly wouldn't stay powered on off a charging cord.

My Fix

iSclack made opening the screen really easy, and everything else went smoothly save the elastic strips that holds the battery.

The guide says to cut the black tab between the two white strips, and then to pull them straight up as you move it down the side of the battery.

Well, being elastic strips, they snapped. Had to use the card to pry the battery of. That was slightly harrowing, but it eventually came off. After that, the new battery worked like a charm.

My Advice

Back up your phone before doing the repair. Ensure that is is an ENCRYPTED back up or certain apps etc won't actually be backed up.

My Problem

Broken digitizer

My Fix

It was a good experience by following the step by step instructions. It was hard to grab small screws.

My Advice

You don't have to remove the black tape attached to the aluminum back screen panel if you replace a camera.

My Problem

iPhone 6 Plus wouldn't hold a charge

My Fix

Followed the step by step battery replacement guide. Perfect instructions, replaced the battery and iPhone is as good as new! Couldn't be happier - you folks rock! Thank you!

My Advice

Screws inside are super tiny! Need good light and young eyes (my son was able to help me out here) lol
