If you've broken your phone screen, here are some tips for display replacement. We will bring you a case iPhone X as a reference. All you need is a repair kit and a new screen. The repair kit should be included as below: tweezers, screwdrivers, pry piece, suction cup, heating pad, programmer, spudger, battery adhesive, and waterproof adhesive.
Before the screen assembly replacement, we need to check out the True Tone display function and whether it still works as usual or not to make sure the new screen will be working.
Firstly, please long press the phone to turn it off. Then you can use a pentagon screwdriver to unscrew the screws at the bottom of the phone. Please pay attention to putting the screws aside well. You can place the screen face down on the pad for about 2-3 minutes after the heating pad is up to the temperature of 70—80°c. And fix the suction cup at the bottom of the phone, lift the screen gently, and insert a pry piece underneath. Gradually move around the edge of the display, separating the screen along the gap. The display assembly is still connected to the iPhone by cables, so don’t try to remove it completely. Again, please pay attention to the position of the cable to avoid damage. The angle should not be greater than 90 degrees to prevent breaking the flex cable. The process of removing the cover is done.
Next, use a Tri-wing screwdriver to unscrew the screws on the shielding cover of the cable connector. You can use a spudger slightly to extricate the battery and the connector between the screen and motherboard. Now, continue to follow instructions step by step. Detach the earpiece speaker flex cable, and remove the old display assembly.
In order to retain the True Tone function on the display as everything in the iPhone is paired to another screen, it's suggested to make good use of a programmer. Fasten the old touch connector on the corresponding connector of the programmer, and start reading. After everything is done, take off the old screen assembly, connect the new one to the programmer, and start writing.
Please connect the new screen assembly to the programmer, start writing, then place the old screen assembly on the heating pad. You can use a Tri-wing screwdriver to unscrew the screws of the earpiece cable and take out the earpiece. Tear off the protector of the new screen assembly and reassemble the earpiece cable on the new screen assembly. Lastly, tighten the screws. Please pay attention to the position of the grounding chip. Finally, we come to the connection part. Please connect the display cable, touch cable, earpiece cable, and battery accordingly.
If there is something wrong with the repair process or assembly issue, it's better to do some tests after replacing a new screen.
It is the same step as the beginning. Long press to turn it on to do some screen test first. We need to do several tests: 3D touch testing, True Tone testing, and light adjustment testing. If your phone shows, all is usually working. Then you can tear off the waterproof adhesive and make it adhere to the phone body. Press lightly with tweezers to make it adhesive, tear off the film, reassemble the display cable, and touch the cable. And the earpiece assembly, and connect the battery. Install the shielding cover, and tighten the screws. Take off the waterproof film around the frame. Buckle the phone screen, and tighten the screws at the bottom.
