My Problem

Original battery would barely hold a charge.

My Fix

Simple and straight forward replacement using the tools in the Fix Kit. The only fiddly bit was getting the grounding clip back in the right place; a pair of tweezers helped with that. The flat cable joining the battery to the connector seemed slightly misfolded, but everything fitted back into place without any problem anyway, so it wasn't a big deal.

Sorry, no pictures because the camera was in the phone being fixed :-)

My Advice

If I had known it was that cheap, quick and easy to change the battery in a 4s I would have done it ages ago!

My Problem

Original battery no longer holding a charge, occassionally suddenly dropping from 50-60% battery life, to below 10% , or even shutting down due to low battery.

My Fix

Worst part was getting the glue to release the old battery.

My Advice

Just a reminder if you run into the same thing... GO EASY and apply light-to-medium pressure and hold it steadily, AND remember to NOT pry against the board, but ONLY against the outer edge/case. ;)

After that, pop the old one out, drop the new one in, ensure that the grounding strap (the tiny loose piece held in place with the upper screw), is in position, snap the connector together, and insert the screws and replace the back cover...

The replacement battery came with approx 50% charge, which lasted approx 30 hours, before it got down to the recommended below 10% charge level before shutting down and performing an uninterrupted FULL charge, to help set battery memory for a longer life. That took approx 3 hours, and the replacement battery has approx 80)+) hour life now... SWEET !!!! ;)

My Problem

After four years my original battery wouldn't hold a charge for very long

My Fix

I had already bought a cheap battery and tool kit on ebay, the tool kit was great but the battery was worthless - I them purchased a new battery from I fix it, the online videos are easy to follow and the repair was easy to do

My Advice

make sure you don't lose those very tiny screws during the repair, and stay away from the cheaper batteries sold on ebay

My Problem

After more than 4 years of use, my trusty 4S had to be recharged multiple times a day.

My Fix

It all went reasonably smoothly. I used an extra pair of plastic tweezers to avoid touching any small bits with my fingers. The guide was great and some of the comments had great tips and alerted me to the trickier parts so I was able to do those slowly and carefully to avoid any trouble.

My Advice

Just do it! This was so much easier than I thought. I wish I had done it a long time ago.

My Problem

My wife was complaining about her iphone 4s had to be charged too often. Ordered a new battery from iFixIt. Next day the iPhone's battery went dead. Charging would not even wake it up.

My Fix

I've replaced one other 4s battery before, so I studied iFixit's pictures and video's and felt confident in replacing batteries on 4s phones. On the first repair I spent little longer ( 30min ) so I could understand what I was doing.

On my wife's phone, I think it took less than 12min. After the replacing the battery and turning it on the phone came on and the new battery showed 50% charge. I discharged the battery down to 10% then charged it overnight. The phone works like new again.

My Advice

First time 4s battery replacement watch iFixit's video then look at step by step pictures.

Be sure the phone is powered off before starting. I used a magnifying glass.

Keep track of the small screws. Don't mix them up.

The 4s phone is an easy phone to take apart and replace the battery.

The kit comes with the tools you need. A small tweezer may be handy.

My Problem

My wife's iPhone 4S was not holding a charge very long. After being on the charger over night and on stand by the battery would loose more than 50% to 60% later the next day. Two days later I ordered a new battery from IFIXIT. The day after the order was placed the phone went completely dead.

Replacing 4S batteries are very easy to do. A few days later I put the new battery in. Yes, I replaced two batteries with-in a week.

My Fix

I followed IFIXIT's instructions and watched each step by step carefully.

It is a simple phone to replace the battery and took me about 10 to 15 minutes. Removing the battery from the phone went well. Laying the new battery in and using a small tweezer to hold the ground in place. After it's put back together I powered it on and works like new again.

My Advice

Watch IFIXIT's instructions until you fully understand them.

Use the tools that come with the kit and a small pointed tweezer.

A magnifier is a big help for the small screws.

Keep track of the screws and small parts in a container

Take your time, don't rush. It's very simple to do.

My Problem

Replacing wife's 8Gb 4s with my old 16Gb 4s in excellent shape but with a weak battery.

My Fix

Opened the box, identified the tools and read the printed instructions but wasn't confident. Read online reviews about difficulties, watched one or two of the You-Tube videos, was careful and deliberate, finished the swap in under 5 minutes. I only wish my other technology challenges were as economically and easily corrected. Thanks iFixit!

My Advice

WATCH THE YOU-TUBE VIDEOS before you touch the phone!

My Problem

Our 4 year old 4s was loosing battery capacity. A full charge would only last 4-5 hours of standby time. Use it for texting or taking photos and it would instantly show below 10% battery life.

My Fix

Changing the battery was very very simple. The photos were very straight forward and instructions perfect. I had the battery changed in under 30 minutes.

My Advice

Take your time removing the battery. Keep using the spludger that comes in the kit to pry up the battery section by section. Slowly move up and down the battery getting the spludger in deeper and gently prying the adhesive away.

One other piece of advice. Pre bend the connections on the battery to the way they were shaped on the previously connected battery it makes putting it all back together a snap.

My Problem

Battery was not holding a charge worth a hoot

My Fix

I watched the video and read the guide, and things went pretty well. Those parts are pretty durn small, especially if you are my age (61), but it all came apart and went together as advertised. The pressure contact did raise my (blood) pressure a mite. The video did not really talk about it , and before I read it in the manual, the little bugger had fallen out onto my work pad, so when I tried to find it in the phone .... Well the BP is back down and the phone reassembled and seems to be working fine.

My Advice

I am an EMT, so I used a pair of exam gloves to avoid touching any contacts, and I think next time I venture into an iPhone, I will be wearing a jeweler's loupe so see the parts better. Great instructional materials. Thank you.

My Problem

Original battery would not hold any charges.

My Fix

Very well. Following the video posted on iFixit and it went with out issues.

My Advice

Watch iFixit repair videos, order the parts (and tools if needed), follow the steps and you are done. Also, pay attention to what iFixit warnings/advices during repair. ie Watch for the screen cable while separate the screen and the case. Very important.
