The case looks exactly how I wanted it to.
There are many reasons why you might want to disassemble your iPhone. One of the reasons may be if you want to buy a new phone and want to sell old iPhone parts to earn some extra cash to offset the price of the new device. Another reason may be that one component of your phone is damaged and you want to fix it. Just because there is a problem with your iPhone doesn't necessarily mean you should buy a new one. These devices can be very expensive and may solve the problem. Or, even if the damaged part cannot be repaired, you can replace it only without having to buy the entire new phone.
If for some reason you are interested in learning how to disassemble your iPhone, please review the steps below to help you get started.
1. First, you need to delete your phone's SIM card tray. Your phone may come with a tool designed specifically for this purpose. However, if you do not have this tool, you can use a paper clip.
2. Next, look for the two iPhone screws located on the side of the phone base. You will need to remove these screws to open the case.
3. Now you need to separate the rear panel from the display. To do this, find the chrome ring and slide the tool over the hole in an iPhone screw between one of the tools and the glass front panel. Be gentle when applying pressure to avoid breaking the glass.
4. Now, without breaking any ribbon, lift the panel off the docking station of the phone.
5. Look for the ribbon labeled "1" and "2" on the motherboard and unplug the power cord. After removing Ribbon 2, you will see Ribbon 3 and you will need to unpack it. After disconnecting the three ribbons, remove the display assembly.
6. The next thing you need to do is release the motherboard. To do this, you must first find and remove the 7 iPhone screws that secure it in it. One of the screws will be covered by a sticker labeled "Do Not Remove." You will also need to delete the ribbon labeled "4".
7. After placing the motherboard aside, you need to pull up the tab attached to it to remove the phone battery. You will find another screw that needs to be removed.
8. Unscrew the 9 iPhone screws and remove the camera, headphone jack and flex cable now.
9. The next component to be removed is the speaker assembly. This section also includes docking station connectors, antennas, and home button. To remove this, you will need to unscrew the 2 iPhone screws.
10. Set the assembly aside and now you need to remove the 5 screws that secure the LCD to the front glass. After removing the screws, you can separate the LCD from the glass panel.
Congratulations! You have now disassembled the iPhone.
I got a lot of compliments on it.
