  • iPhone 5 Display Assembly Replacement

    Anyone have any idea why the 1.6mm screw is not magnetic? Just wondering why this screw seems to be made of aluminum, its the first screw of its kind as far as iphones go.

  • iPhone 5 Earpiece Speaker Replacement

    There is a tiny black plastic spacer under the top screw, be sure not to lose this. It is easier to reinstall it after all of the parts have been transferred to the new screen including the front facing camera assembly. The spacer has a small cutout in it, which is positioned to the left side. Put this spacer in as the last step before reinstalling the metal speaker bracket, otherwise you risk losing it moving the screen around reattaching all the parts to the new screen.

  • iPhone 5 Front Panel Replacement

    As far as screens go, with the technology and build quality involved, I dont see this screen going under $200. Wasn't difficult at all, but there are still many steps involved. Great guide ifixit!

  • iPhone 5 Home Button Ribbon Cable Replacement

    Hit it and the home button with a little heat, it eases in removing the button and ribbon that have a little bit of adhesive.
