Power off your iPhone
Before performing any repair, always power off your device before removing any screws or parts.
Remove the dock connector screws
Using your #00 Phillips screwdriver, remove the 2 screws located on each side of the dock connector.
Remove the digitizer & LCD assembly
This part can be a bit tricky so please do this with extreme care so you don’t tear any cables during the process. I highly recommend using the suction cup method unless your screen is cracked above the home button for some reason and you can’t get a proper seal with the suction cup.
Suction cup method (recommended):
The easiest way to remove the digitizer assembly is by using a suction cup.
1.Position the suction cup on the screen directly above the home button.
2.Using your other hand, hold down the frame while gently pulling up on the suction cup.
3.The goal is to get the bottom of the digitizer loose. Do not pull directly up. There are 3 cables attached in the top right of your iPhone. You do not want to tear these. Just pull up until the bottom of the assembly pops out.
4.After you have the bottom up you can remove the suction cup.
Spudger/razor blade method (only use this method as a secondary method):
ONLY use this method if your screen is cracked above the home button. If this is the case, you’ll need to use a razor blade or spudger in order to remove it. And while you’re at it, replace that broken screen!
1.Starting in the bottom left hand corner, insert a plastic spudger and
gently pry up. Once the first side is starting to pop up, do the same on the
bottom right side.
Run your pry tool along the bottom of the device in order to pop up the bottom of the assembly. Take special care around the home button area.
2.Remove the cables that attach the digitizer assembly to the logic board:
Once you have the bottom of your digitizer assembly popped up we can remove the cables attaching it to the logic board.
1.Gently lift up your digitizer enough to have a clear view of the 3 cables in the top right of your iPhone.
2.With your plastic spudger or pry tool, you’ll need to pry up the first two cables that attach the digitizer and LCD. They should be labeled with orange stickers numbered 1 and 2. Simply pop them off the logic board gently.
3.Underneath these cables you’ll see one other labeled as cable 3. This one is a bit trickier as it is clipped down. You’ll need to gently pop up the clasp holding it into the fastener. It is a tiny white clip. Simply pop it upwards and the number 3 cable should then slide right out.
4.Remove the digitizer & LCD assembly and set it aside.
