Are you tired of staring at a cracked iPhone screen? Don’t worry, fixing it is easier than you think! In this article, we will guide you through the step-by-step process of fixing a broken iPhone screen.

Gather the necessary tools

Before you start the repair, make sure you have the following tools:

  • Screwdriver set: You will need a small Phillips screwdriver to remove the screws on your iPhone.
  • Suction cup: This will help you lift the broken screen off your iPhone.
  • Prying tool: You’ll need this to disconnect the cables that connect the screen to the iPhone’s motherboard.
  • New screen assembly: Purchase a replacement screen assembly that is compatible with your specific iPhone model.

Step-by-step guide

Step 1: Power off your iPhone

The first step is to turn off your iPhone completely. This will prevent any accidental damage while working on it.

Step 2: Remove the screws

Use a small Phillips screwdriver to remove the two screws at the bottom of your iPhone. These screws secure the screen to the frame.

Step 3: Use a suction cup to lift the broken screen

Place a suction cup on the lower half of your iPhone’s screen. Gently pull up on the suction cup to create a slight gap between the broken screen and the frame. This will allow you to insert a prying tool.

Step 4: Disconnect cables

Carefully insert a prying tool into the gap you created with the suction cup. Slowly move the tool around the edges of your iPhone to loosen the adhesive that holds the screen in place. Once you have loosened the screen, gently lift it up to reveal the cables connecting it to the motherboard.

Using a prying tool or your fingers, disconnect these cables by carefully lifting them up. Be sure to remember their order and position for reassembly later.

Step 5: Replace the broken screen

Take your new screen assembly and align it with the iPhone’s frame. Carefully connect the cables back to their respective ports on the motherboard.

Once all cables are securely connected, press down on the edges of your new screen assembly to ensure it is properly seated in place.

Step 6: Secure with screws

Use your Phillips screwdriver to put back the two screws at the bottom of your iPhone, securing the screen assembly to the frame.

Final thoughts

Congratulations! You have successfully fixed your broken iPhone screen. Remember, take your time during each step and be gentle with your iPhone’s delicate components.

If you feel unsure about performing this repair yourself, it is always recommended to seek professional help from an authorized service center or technician.
