Introduzione

To replace the battery, you will first need to remove the casing, undo the adhesive under the battery pack, and, finally, remove the battery to replace it.

  1. Warm up an iOpener following the instructions found in the iOpener guide. Place the warm iOpener on top of the edges of the screen.  This heat will weaken the strength of the adhesive between the display and body.

    • If you push straight down near the edge you will go through the speaker mesh and possibly end up damaging your speaker; try to push the pick in at a shallow angle.

  3. Carefully try to work your way around the device using the picks, reapplications of the heated iOpener, and luck. If you break the glass on one side you might want to try again starting from the other side so that you have a clean, unbroken, edge on that side.

    • While the glass on this display is not particularly sharp when broken, it is still broken glass and you should be careful with it.

  5. Flip the display over so that parts underneath it are easily accessible.
    • Flip the display over so that parts underneath it are easily accessible.

    • Do not pull out the display as it is still attached to the motherboard.

    • If you are replacing the display, or want it out of the way, continue with the display replacement guide steps.

    Please note that the WIFI antenna can become stuck to the display. It is located on the black plastic to the right of the camera and can be easily disconnected accidentally. Excellent guide otherwise.

    When replacing the battery, the connector will not slide back in where it came from easily. There are small “fingers” that press down on the top of the connector from the bottom of the logic board, they are pressed down against the back of the casing so firmly that the connector will not slide under them, instead the cable will ride up them and jam into the back of the logic board. I’ve found the best solution is to remove the screws from the logic board and use a spudger to gently lift the logic board to make a space under the fingers to allow the connector to slip back in.

    Be aware of the fragility of the battery connector and ensure that the replacement has got the cut out on the leading edge. I’ve managed to break / snap the connecting cable on the replacement battery :-( so will have to order another and try again (at £25 its worth trying again IMHO).

    If one of this pins holding the ribbon breaks does the mother board still work, with a new battery. Do i need to remove motherboard to instsll battery ribbon. Its hard not to break.

    I took out the six (torx 3) and two (torx 2) screws near the battery terminal. Then used a spudger on the left side of the logic board to get it high enough off the frame to sneak in the battery connector. Worked great. Helps to have an extra hand too.

I followed these instructions without a hitch but now that I'm trying to put the new battery in I can't slide the connector for the new battery back in. It seems like the teeth that are supposed to grab the connector for the battery are too tight so I can't side the director for the battery in. Do you have any advise for this issue that I'm having?

Recently had to complete this repair for a customer. Was in the same boat, couldn’t figure out how to plug the battery back in. And wasn’t paying attention to how the connection was originally, when i pulled the battery. The connector has to slide UNDER the teeth, not above. Meaning loosen the board screws and lift the board slightly, then slide the battery connector in. hopefully this helps others that a stuck with this issue, and iFixit will update this guide.
