Panoramica Video

  1. Sostituzione schermo iPhone X, Viti Pentalobe: passo 1, immagine 1 di 1
    • Prima di iniziare, scarica la batteria del tuo iPhone sotto il 25%. Una batteria agli ioni di litio carica può prendere fuoco e/o esplodere se viene perforata accidentalmente.

    • Spegni il tuo iPhone prima di iniziare a smontarlo.

    • Rimuovi le due viti Pentalobe lunghe 6,9 mm sul lato inferiore dell'iPhone.

    • Se le viti sono rotte o danneggiate, sostituisci le viti.

    • L'apertura del display dell'iPhone comprometterà le sue guarnizioni impermeabili. Procurati guarnizioni di ricambio prima di procedere al passo successivo oppure stai attento ad evitare di esporre il tuo telefono ai liquidi se non sostituisci le guarnizioni.

    There are 6.81mm long screws!

    One of the pentalobe screws is stripped :( - suggestions for how to get it out?

    cgtyoder - Replica

    same situation here

    kaunomarcius - Replica

    Same issue for me too, how do I get the stripped screw out?

    patronics - Replica

    Update: I was able to get the “stripped” screw out using another Pentalobe-2 screwdriver bit from another company. It seems it wasn’t the screw, but the screw driver that was actually stripped. Hence why the other screwdriver kit I got came with 3 of this bit, I suppose.

    patronics - Replica

    I ended up going to a jewelry store, and they drilled down into the screw, with of course an incredibly tiny bit. That allowed me to insert the P2 driver, and I was able to unscrew it at that point. Good luck!

    cgtyoder - Replica

    Same issue with the stripping. The tip of the iFixit P2 head in my $70 kit just ground off on the first screw and that was that. Not much you can do.

    Kyle Harris - Replica

    yes correct the same happened to me, the screws were perfect shaped never been open and as soon as i used the P2 it stripped the screws, seems like the P2 is slightly smaller but Dremel kit with a very small drill bits and precise knife tool is the way to go.

    Dulce Vidal - Replica

    This step in automatically followed through, without any thought. Why remove these screws? Can anybody explain? The Screen is detachable all the same, with them well screwed in…

    Uri - Replica

    These screws attach to a plate that’s part of the screen half of the phone. If you succeed in detaching the screen without removing those, it would seem reasonable that you will have damaged that plate or its ability to keep the two halves together.

    Dan Long -

    @Dan Long is right

    Uri -

    Clean out the pentalobe screw heads first so the tool goes all the way in. A small sewing needle works well to loosen any build up and then press some putty/chewing gum into the screw head and pull away quickly for a final clean out.

    William Olstad - Replica

    The this kit should include screws because you’re going to strip them. Can’t even get past step one. Did anybody figure this out

    justin - Replica

    Never opened my phone ever, when I went to look at the first step.. I noticed one of my screws was stripped. I thought it was impossible, but I removed the non stripped one, then once I got to the stripped one.. I learned my assumptions were correct. I bought this one straight from the apple site years ago ahaha Any tips to remove the stripped screw?

    Clarence Williams - Replica

    William Olstad's tip about cleaning the screws with a needle and a bit of poster putty worked well for me. There was a lot of crud in there! The opening is shallow, so it's easy to see how the screwdriver wouldn't catch with even a bit of grit in the way, No problem getting the pentalobe screws out with the ifixit screwdriver.

    • Se il tuo iPhone ha lo schermo in pezzi, applicando del nastro adesivo sulla superficie eviterai ulteriori rotture e la possibilità di farti male nel corso della riparazione.

    • Disponi strisce sovrapposte di nastro da pacchi sul display dell'iPhone fino a ricoprire tutta la superficie.

    • In questo modo impedirai la dispersione di schegge di vetro e assicurerai l'integrità strutturale del display quando lo forzerai per sollevarlo.

    • Indossa occhiali di sicurezza per proteggere gli occhi da schegge di vetro che potrebbero volare via nel corso della riparazione.

    • Se la rottura del vetro rende difficile far aderire una ventosa come indicato nei prossimi passi, prova a ripiegare un pezzo di nastro adesivo molto tenace (come il nastro americano) attorno a una maniglia e usalo al posto della ventosa per sollevare il display.

    The included suction cups were stiff and worthless. They would not lift the screen. Also, I tried every type of tape on the screen to help the suction cups stick without success. Heavy duty suction cups were for my bathroom also failed. However, I had an old GoPro mount with some preapplied double sided 3M VSB tape and stuck that on the screen near the bottom. Magic! This method had the added bonus of being able to use a GoPro attachment as a handle to lift the screen, and propped up the screen like a kickstand in step 12.

    Tawan Khamapirad - Replica

    Very cool! Thanks

    Antonio -

    My screen was pretty stuck… would not budge. Heated, super glued the suction cup, tried gorilla tape. Ended up doing the GoPro mount with 3M VSB tape method mentioned. Worked great. That 3M tape is the bomb.

    Rich Wachtel - Replica

    The included suction cup took a few tries but ended up working for me.

    If you have flat feeler gauges (for adjusting engine valve tappet clearance, ignition points … old school) the .003 thick goes right in. Work your way up until you can get the pick or supplied pry tool in.

    where can I buy 3M VSB plis!!

    gerardo artigas cuellar - Replica

    3M VHB tape is at auto stores and other big box stores, or online.

    nicO Gurney -

    I used the tweezers that came with the replacement screen and jammed one of them into the glass and that eventually worked. Heating with a blow dryer is also important. The suction cup was helpful in loosening the adhesive for sure, but just not enough to get the display to come out.

  3. Sostituzione schermo iPhone X, Procedura di apertura: passo 3, immagine 1 di 1
    • Il riscaldamento del bordo inferiore dell'iPhone aiuta ad ammorbidire l'adesivo che blocca il display, semplificando l'apertura.

    • Usa un asciugacapelli oppure prepara un iOpener e applicalo per circa un minuto al bordo inferiore dell'iPhone per ammorbidire l'adesivo sottostante.

    General tip regarding heating necessary to remove adhesive:

    consider using a heated tip of a small screwdriver or metal spudger (not the one made of plastic, provided in kit), rather than to heat the device itself.

    Uri - Replica

    You then need to be careful about the temp of the tool which if hot enough can melt plastic components or harm them. Keeping the heat source (heat gun) far enough away from the object that you’ll eventually melt the glue but would be much harder to melt components. I try to keep 4” or 5” gap between the source & object

    Sandman619 -

    Thanks for the info. Could a air convector do the job - Replica

    When opening a device that has previously been worked on, and on which the adhesive might not have been replaced, be extremely carful when opening the phone. It will open much more easily than expected. If you’re not careful you might rip a cable.

    jonpol - Replica

    Is this tool required or can I just use the Anti-Clamp by itself.

    • Le due fasi successive mostrano come si utilizza l'Anti-Clamp, uno strumento che abbiamo progettato per facilitare la procedura di apertura. Se non stai utilizzando l'Anti-Clamp, salta i due passaggi successivi per un metodo alternativo.

    • Per istruzioni complete sull'uso dell'Anti-Clamp, consulta questa guida.

    • Tira la maniglia blu verso la cerniera per disinserire la modalità di apertura.

    • Posiziona le ventose vicino al bordo inferiore dell'iPhone: una sulla parte anteriore e una sulla parte posteriore.

    • Spingi verso il basso le coppe per applicare le ventose all'area desiderata.

    • Se la superficie del dispositivo è troppo scivolosa per consentire all'Anti-Clamp di aggrapparsi, è possibile utilizzare del nastro da imballaggio per creare una superficie più aderente.

  5. Sostituzione schermo iPhone X: passo 5, immagine 1 di 3 Sostituzione schermo iPhone X: passo 5, immagine 2 di 3 Sostituzione schermo iPhone X: passo 5, immagine 3 di 3
    • Spingi la maniglia blu lontano dalla cerniera per attivare la modalità di apertura.

    • Ruota la maniglia in senso orario finché non si vede che le ventose iniziano a estendersi.

    • Assicurati che le ventose rimangano allineate tra loro. Se iniziano a sfuggire dall'allineamento, allenta leggermente le ventose e riallinea i bracci.

    • Attendi un minuto per dare all'adesivo la possibilità di staccarsi e creare una fessura di apertura.

    • Inserisci un plettro di apertura sul bordo inferiore quando l'Anti-Clamp crea uno spazio sufficientemente ampio.

    • Se l'Anti-Clamp non crea uno spazio sufficiente, applica più calore all'area e ruota la maniglia di mezzo giro in senso orario.

    • Non girare più di mezzo giro alla volta e attendi un minuto tra un giro e l'altro. Lascia che l'Anti-Clamp e il tempo facciano il lavoro per te.

    • Salta i prossimi due passi.

    DO NOT separate the glass from the plastic bumper or rim around it. These instructions don't clarify that the pick has to be inserted between the plastic rim and the metal body. It is likely that the glass will lift slightly off the plastic surround before the plastic will lift out of the metal body. I had success sliding a card or pick back and forth along the bottom edge of the plastic rim while pulling on the suction cup. Eventually there was a space large enough for the pick to go under the plastic rim.

    • Se usi una sola ventosa, applicala sul bordo inferiore del telefono evitando la parte curva del vetro.

    • Se il tuo display è gravemente danneggiato, coprilo con uno strato di nastro trasparente da pacchi affinché la ventosa possa aderire. Oppure usa un nastro molto tenace al posto della ventosa. Se entrambi i metodi falliscono, prendi della supercolla (cianoacrilica) per attaccare la ventosa al display danneggiato.

    If you were using some form of screen protector, it may come off first as soon as you pull on the suction cup. Do not be alarmed. That is normal behavior.

    Alain-Daniel Wa-Baguma - Replica

    3m VSB double stick tape will stick to the screen when the suction cups fail (see my comment on step 1)

  7. Sostituzione schermo iPhone X: passo 7, immagine 1 di 3 Sostituzione schermo iPhone X: passo 7, immagine 2 di 3 Sostituzione schermo iPhone X: passo 7, immagine 3 di 3
    • Tira la ventosa applicando una tensione forte e costante fino a creare una piccola fessura tra il pannello frontale e il case posteriore.

    • Inserisci un plettro di apertura nella fessura.

    • L'adesivo impermeabile che tiene in posizione il display è molto tenace. La creazione di questa fessura iniziale richiede l'applicazione di una forza piuttosto elevata. Se hai difficoltà nell'aprire una fessura, applica altro calore e muovi lo schermo su e giù per indebolire l'adesivo finché non riesci a infilare lo strumento di apertura.

    In addition to safety goggles, I would recommend you also wear good gloves to avoid getting cut with the glass as you try to pry it open.

    Alain-Daniel Wa-Baguma - Replica

    The top about applying more heat and gently rocking the screen up and down to weaken the adhesive did the trick for me. Thank you!

    Monil Shah - Replica

    There needs to be more clarity on where to shove the opening pick into. There is actually two openings that the pry tool can be forced into: one below the black plastic bezel, and one above the black plastic bezel. When I heated my screen with a warming pad and pulled up the suction cup, it actually pried apart above the black plastic bezel which removed the touch screen from the display panel. With this being the first newer iPhone I'd opened since the 3GS, I didn't realize that I was opening the wrong opening as the directions only mentioned one opening and did not warn of this. I was pretty disappointed in the lack of mentioning this, as I was taking my time and following it to the tee. As a result, it destroyed my original iPhone screen.

    Caleb Davison - Replica

    DO NOT separate the glass from the plastic bumper or rim around it. As someone else noted, these instructions don't clarify that the pick has to be inserted between the plastic rim and the metal body of the phone. When pulling upwards with the suction cup, it is likely that the glass will lift slightly off the plastic surround before the plastic will lift out of the metal body. I had success sliding a card or pick back and forth along the bottom edge of the plastic rim while pulling on the suction cup. Eventually there was a space large enough for the pick to go under the plastic rim.

    • Fai scorrere il tuo attrezzo attorno all'angolo inferiore sinistro e lungo il bordo sinistro dell'iPhone per rompere l'adesivo che tiene in posizione il display.

    • Non inserire il plettro troppo in profondità nell'iPhone. Potresti danneggiare i componenti interni.

  9. Sostituzione schermo iPhone X: passo 9, immagine 1 di 3 Sostituzione schermo iPhone X: passo 9, immagine 2 di 3 Sostituzione schermo iPhone X: passo 9, immagine 3 di 3
    • Inserisci nuovamente il tuo attrezzo nell'angolo inferiore destro dell'iPhone e fallo scorrere lungo il lato destro del telefono per separare l'adesivo.

    • Non inserire il plettro troppo in profondità: potresti danneggiare i cavi del display presenti lungo questo lato dell'iPhone. Inseriscilo solo per alcuni millimetri, più o meno la larghezza della cornice del display.

    If you have flat feeler gauges (for adjusting engine valve tappet clearance, ignition points … old school) the .003” thick gauge goes right in. Work your way up in thickness until you can get the pic or supplied pry tool in. Don’t insert metal feeler gauge in too far, just enough to hold crack open. I didn’t need to use the suction cup. I used a hot/cold gel pack heated in microwave to heat edges to soften glue a bit. Made sure it wasn’t so hot I couldn’t stand it on my skin.

    • Il bordo superiore del display è fissato sia con la colla sia con delle clip.

    • Fai scorrere il plettro sotto il bordo superiore del display, mentre muovi o scuoti delicatamente il display verso il basso, in direzione della porta Lightning.

    • Se ci metterai troppa forza, le clip si romperanno. Lavora con cautela e pazienza.

    • Non oltrepassare la cornice del display neanche qui, infila il plettro di pochi millimetri. Altrimenti potresti danneggiare il gruppo di sensori del pannello frontale.

    • Fai scorrere il plettro nell'angolo opposto e taglia tutto l'adesivo rimanente.

    These are the best instructions I’ve ever read for anything.! Thank you!

    • Apri l'iPhone sollevando il display dal lato sinistro, come per sollevare la copertina posteriore di un libro.

    • Non cercare di staccare del tutto il display, perché questo è ancora connesso alla scheda logica dell'iPhone da diversi fragili cavi piatti.

    • Come indicato nell'immagine, accertati che il telaio venga via assieme allo schermo e non resti incastrato nel dispositivo.

    • Appoggia il display contro qualche tipo di supporto per mantenerlo aperto mentre lavori sul telefono.

    • Durante il rimontaggio poni il display in posizione, allinea le clip lungo il bordo superiore e premi delicatamente il bordo stesso per metterlo in posizione prima di reinserire tutto il display. Se non si incastra facilmente fino al clic, controlla le clip lungo il perimetro del display per assicurarti che non si siano deformate.

    My phone came apart in a different way and looks not right the little box at the top of the display as actually bolted to the top of the frame body I think something went really wrong when I opened it.

    Mike Kostersitz - Replica

    It opens like a book but be careful not to open it all the way — only as far as shown in the photo. Otherwise it will strain the thin cable that connects the sensor module and then no more FaceID for you (or, as it turns out me). This could have been made more explicit in the instructions.

    Richard Tucker - Replica

    It opens like a book but be careful not to open it all the way  … the small stainless steel tabs that hold the screen around the metal frame, that are on the bend place (right side of the phone)… are tend to bend, you can straighten them back to 90 deg. but the plastic base that they are on? very fragile- watch out not to break the plastic bezel … it may come apart of the glass.

    Advice for re-assembly: Before closing up the phone with the seal, check if phone is powering up again and speaker, mic and sensors are still working. If done this check even before installing the board connector bracket in Step 13.

    • Rimuovi cinque viti viti tri-wing Y000 che tengono in posizione la staffa del connettore della scheda logica, delle seguenti lunghezze:

    • Tre viti da 1,1 mm

    • Una vite da 3,1 mm

    • Una vite da 3,7 mm

    • Durante la riparazione tieni traccia di ogni vite e assicurati di rimetterle tutte esattamente dove erano prima per evitare di danneggiare il tuo iPhone.

    One thing I found helpful for replacing the screws was to use only the 000screwdriver tip, without the handle. This way, the tip isn’t magnetized and the screw doesn’t tend to ‘roll’ off the screwdriver tip (the screw has almost no mass, so the head (largest surface) is pulled around to the side of the screwdriver tip when magnetized).

    My 3.1mm screw had a stripped head, could not remove it. (Factory defect, this iPhone was never opened)

    So I had to give up removing the display assembly, and jumped directly to battery replacement, Step 20.

    That was tricky as I had to keep the display at 90º with a risk of breaking display connectors, but hopefully the replacement went well.

    I would not recommend to do this but to follow the guide, but, in case someone encounters a similar issue, that could help!

    Be careful on reassembly. Keep the screen supported and not moving. I had difficulty getting the screws in and ended up ruining the screen connectivity at the back of the screen where the ribbon cables go in near the center. I was trying to hand hold the screen and it ended up moving around too much.

    SETH GREEN - Replica

    To keep track of the screws, I copy the photos showing their places, then arrange these photos on document in Pages, print it. Next I apply two sided sticky tape (the roll-on type). So all screws have their corresponding places …

    • Rimuovi la staffa.

    • La staffa può opporre una lieve resistenza al distacco. Sollevala delicatamente ma in modo fermo per staccarla.

    • In fase di riassemblaggio, ecco il momento giusto per accendere il tuo iPhone e verificare tutte le funzioni prima di rimontare e sigillare il display. Non dimenticare poi di rispegnere l'iPhone prima di continuare.

    I tested it, then proceeded to close up the device without the bracket. Do I need to reopen and install? All connections are good?

    monastra7 - Replica

    The bracket helps those many connectors underneath maintain good contact. Probably in the short term nothing bad will happen, but I’d hang onto the bracket and reinstall it when convenient.

    for me, the replacement battery was completely dead, small panic when the power-on button was pressed, but quickly realised that this was the situation, and now watching the phone take a power cycle.

    James Stanbridge - Replica

    Before clicking the screen assembly back, I tried to test the iPhone by pushing the start button, but nothing happened. After taking off the bracket, reseating the plugs I tried again - nothing happened! Then I plugged in the charging cable connected with the iMac, and it started immediately. So if the phone does not start using the startup button, it might just be a glitch when reconnecting the battery.

    • Usa la punta di uno spudger o un'unghia pulita per staccare il connettore della batteria sollevandolo dal suo zoccolo sulla scheda logica.

    • Cerca di non danneggiare le guarnizioni in silicone nero intorno a questa e altre connessioni della scheda. Queste guarnizioni forniscono un'ulteriore protezione contro l'intrusione di acqua e polvere.

    • Piega lievemente il connettore per distanziarlo dalla scheda logica ed evitare che questo possa fare contatto con lo zoccolo e quindi alimentare il telefono nel corso della tua riparazione.

    This was probably the hardest part other than trying to get the screen off with the crappy suction cups. I re-installed the bracket only the find out that the touch screen would not respond to touch. Had to remove the five screws, remove the bracket and reseat the recessed screen connector. Reseating the bracket took another 10+ minutes. I carefully used the angled forceps to grab the cable and align the connector being careful not to damage the cable.

    Once you have the connector seated, I would reconnect the battery, power on the phone, and check the touch screen response before re-installing the bracket (step 13).

    Tawan Khamapirad - Replica

    Yeah, this was probably the trickiest part of the reassembly. The power connector cable kept getting in the way so I moved it carefully but fully out of the way. Then it was a matter of fiddling around with it a bit and being careful not to force it on.

    Jeffrey Hoy -

    I was positive that I had messed something up, I had powered up the phone to test three different times and everything seemed find except there was no touch at all. On my fourth attempt, I carefully examined everything for dust and debris (blowing gently), and I did notice that a corner of the connector (more like part of the ribbon) was bent slightly, and I straightened it. I don't know if it was the ribbon or some tiny debris, but after reseating a fourth time, it worked.

    Pol Llovet - Replica

    Very important part of the tutorial. Be careful and patience! In my case the screen and camera didn't respond after assemble, so I tried again to reconnect the connector like tutorial said and it worked well. Now my iPhone feel like a new one 💪🏼

    Do this sensor affect face id?

    bonglkv - Replica

    It is part of the face id part so yes. This is the ear piece too so if the ribbon tears there is a chance the ear piece will stop working as well.

    Stephen Patterson - Replica

    Be super careful handling this ribbon particularly. I did a battery install and, when I was done, I had a phone with a new battery and no Face ID. That’s a $300 Apple repair, and no 3rd party shop will touch it. I believe the ribbon lays vertically (i.e., perpendicular to the “floor” of the phone, against the side edge of the battery. During the re-install, I must have forced the ribbon into position after seating the connector, causing fatal flexing of the ribbon. (Don’t know this for sure, but I see another comment saying that this cable is part of Face ID.) Anyway, bottom line: BE CAREFUL REMOVING AND REINSTALLING THIS RIBBON!

    Jonathan Pines - Replica

    My flex cable was more than lightly adhered in place. I needed to use a guitar pic or similar to help encourage adhesive to separate. I wouldn’t pull too hard like shown in pictures unless you had just the right grip on the ribbon cable so as to avoid damaging flex cable. See note above (5/31/20)

    I also found the glue quite recluctant to release so I applied a second or two of heat using the wife's hair dryer which softened it and the cable lifted much easier then. Be careful not to apply too much heat though which could then impact other internal components.

    Kenneth McLeod - Replica

    @kennethmcleod, most likely you've separated the screen frame from the screen itself. We see this most commonly when people neglect to remove the pentalobe screws next to the charging port. Usually the cure is to take out those screws, then repeat the screen removal process on the frame that's still attached to the phone.

    when I opened my iPhone the screw was already stripped, I had the phone once at an Apple store for repair about 2 years ago. Had not opened it in between so it seems they stripped the screw there or it came like that from the factory. Any ideas? I don’t want to try and force it out.

    Steps 19 and on are all on the screen you just removed. Not the phone side. I didn’t look closely at the image and just went for the screw in roughly the same place on the phone body side. First warning sign it’s a phillips - but more importantly I was working on the entirely wrong piece. I guess you’ll probably figure it out faster than I did.

    FYI: My iphone XS has a slightly different screw position for the one shown to have a “clip”. There is no clip for this screw on mine. Maybe a rev update because of the clip getting lost and being hard to reinstall?

    William Olstad - Replica

    FYI - The sensor assembly of the replacement looks a bit different from my original one. The screw is located further to the right on the original. As a result, I am unable to attach the sensor assembly on the replacement part, because the fixture is at a different position.

    Unfortunately, there’s nothing I can do about it apart asking for a refund.

    This looks different on my iPhone X. There’s no clip. It turns out that the replacement screen is NOT compatible with my iPhone. See my comment on Step 23. Must be a different HW revision. The whole front sensor assembly casting is a bit different. After replacing 2 screens of older iPhone generations this is my first failure due to HW incompatibility. From here on forward I probably won’t attempt another major smart phone repair. Technology is getting to complex for DIY. Will buy an iPhone 13 Pro with insurance (even though it’s utterly overpriced and I always like the DIY challenge)…

    • Rimuovi altre due viti tri-wing Y000 che bloccano il gruppo altoparlante/sensore:

    • Una vite da 1,6 mm

    • Una vite da 1,3 mm

    What do you do if the 1.6mm tripoint screw won’t come out…? I think it may be stripped :(

    Salvatore Boenzi - Replica

    You could try using an old screwdriver & carefully adding a dab of superglue to the screw to attach it to the screwdriver, Then the screw may come out, Superglue’s strength is holding 2 pieces together when the stress point is pulling the 2 pieces away from each other. Superglue becomes surprisingly easy to break when twisting the 2 pieces. So be careful since the rotation of the screw will put the stress point at the weakest of the glue’s strength.

    I would suggest:

    1. Try a small precision flat head, a good quality one, I bought some that were supposed to be to remove stripped screws, about 20-30 bucks for 4 or 5 of them, and they have saved my butt many times.

    2. I have been able to remove stripped screws with wire cutters. Or you can try some vamp pliers but they are probably too large for this situation.

    3. If the last two fail, the course of action is to basically destroy the head of that screw (assuming you are removing the stuff you need for your new lcd, which is very likely) they have drill bits called easy outs or screw removing drill bit, which is a drill bit with the spiral going the opposite direction (for a screw that tiny you can take a small drill bit, cut and sharpen the end that normally has no spiral, I have made that work in the past) the point is that as you drill in, the drill bit is digging and moving counterclockwise, so at some point as it digs in it will get “stuck” and keep spinning go the screw, thus removing it.

    there was no bracket on my new screen I purchased from here.. am I supposed to heat up and remove the old one, or was their supposed to be one on the new screen ??

    0perationguttertech - Replica

    @br0k3nilluzion If your new display didn’t come with a front camera frame, you can (and should) remove the old one from your broken display and transfer it over. Use heat and careful wiggling/prying to remove it—and if it’s stubborn, add a few drops of isopropyl alcohol. Hope this helps!

    Does face-id stop working if the black plastic separates from the flex(The orange and red dot)?

    tharshan91 - Replica

    If the black plastic piece with the flood illuminator and the proximity sensor is separated from the flex cable, then Face ID will definitely not work. Be very careful not to damage any of the parts in the front sensor assembly.

    Adam O'Camb -

    There is some sort of a tape in front of the flood illuminator which is not present on the replacement screen! Is that gonna cause a problem too?

    BTW, it’s so difficult to position the front camera frame without glue. I guess it takes a few attempts of trial and error!

    shoeib - Replica

    It might not cause any major problems, but there’s a chance that it could effect FaceID functionality. If possible, transfer the tape from the old screen to the new one.

    Adam O'Camb -

    I find it better, regardless of if your new screen comes with the transparent front camera frame, to remove the front sensor assembly from the old screen with the frame, and lifting up the whole assembly using the frame. That way you do not need to apply heat directly to the fragile assembly, but apply it to the other side, the front of the screen at the top, instead, to soften the frame adhesive. The frame is then usually easy to pry loose using a narrow spudger, and comes off cleanly. After that it is much easier to remove the sensors and microphone from the frame, no heat needed usually. And if your new screen doesn’t come with the frame, just plonk the whole frame/sensor assembly down in the right place, and boom, Bob’s your uncle.

    Hello I have an iPhone X i Bought it in 2019 with Face ID not working ( not available try later ) I think the screen was changed with another original , tru tone Off , Als off no auto brightness (and the PROXIMITY SENSOR too ! ) no black screen in calls, i would like to ask u if the earpiece speaker flex was changed with another one (all components ) not the original , did proximity sensor still work ?? Because I don’t know is the original flex of my iphone or not ? I found some scratches in the flex it appears to have small cut so I don’t know the PROXIMITY SENSOR not working because there are a small cut in the flex or because the flex is not the same ?? And if the flex is not the original it can disable (proximity sensor)too not only flood and als ?? Thank you

    Ach - Replica

    Yes it should still work. If you change the assembly to one that isn’t original to that iPhone X everything except the FaceID should still work - I have done so several times for clients. So the reason for yours not working is probably the same small scratches and cuts you have seen. The cable is a bit fragile and some of the copper leads running through it are extremely thin.

    Lars -

    To keep True Tone function on the replacement screen you’ll need a chip data programmer EEPROM to copay data from the old screen onto the new one. There a device called JC-V1 which should do the trick.

does a new display not come with faceid sensor? so you have to remove this and instal it again with the new glass?

Scott Miller - Replica

yeah, also face id will not work if you don’t replace the flex. Just be careful

jump1n -

FaceID is diabled if the hardware detects a new FaceID module. Using the original parts avoids this issue so that the FaceID feature is’t disabled. This could prevent a FaceID module from being replaced with a doctored or unlicensed part which may fail to provide the same level of security than the Apple supplied part.

Sandman619 -

Sorry, if I replace my iPhone X Lcd, will the Face ID stop working?

Valentine Ebuka -

@valebuka, As long as you follow the guide and move your earpiece speaker assembly with its sensors to the new screen, Face ID will continue to work.

Just as a note, I know what you mean when you say LCD, but technically the iPhone X does not have an LCD display; they switched instead to an OLED display.

Hey guys,

I have just completed my third iPhone X screen replacement, but now the taptic engine no longer functions and the phone no longer detects wifi ssid’s.

Does anyone have any advice?

Alex Stewart - Replica

Akex even though you were not working in the area of the Taptic Engine, it sounds like something has happened down there because the wifi long antenna flex cable is attached to the frame at the bottom of the phone that is secured with seven screws. That frame and wifi aerial cable glued to the underside runs right next to the Taptic Engine . The frame also carries three EMC Grounding Pads. Its shown in Step 23 of the iPhone X Taptic Engine Replacement Guide but they dont mentions what the cable is. iFixit dont carry it as a spare part either.

So is the iPhone XS’s cracked screen replacement different from the iPhone X’s?

@lucasmar The procedure for the XS screen replacement is very nearly identical—you can find the guide for it right here.

Jeff Suovanen -

Does anyone of you know that when you replace iphone x display, you need to transfer codes from the old cracked display to work fine?

amar762 - Replica

Yes, it is needed for TrueTone to work perfect. I guess Apple fixed it on newer updates, but i’m pretty sure there’s a tool to trasnfer the “serial number” of the old screen into your old one. I may get one for the shop soon!

Rafael B -

The codes are not transferred. Certain components are have an ID number similar to a MAC address. The components have unique IDs & are registered with the hardware at time of manufacture, When replacing some components, like an LCD display, the unique ID components are transferred from the old part, the LCD display, to the new part, This maintains the functionality of those components, Replacement components need software only available to authorized Apple repair centers to add the new component IDs to the unit. In features like FaceID, this increases the security of iPhones by making it much more difficult to exchange components used by FaceID with components which have been hacked to make it easier to corrupt the iPhone security or for less reputable sources to sell cheaper fake components,

Sandman619 -

Is it possible to separate the digitizer and OLED flex cables from the screen and just replace them?

A_Bortz - Replica

Possible, sure. Practical, no. You’d need an expensive microsoldering rig and a fair bit of practice to pull it off, plus a donor screen to get the cables from. From a DIY perspective, it’s far faster and cheaper to simply replace the entire display.

Jeff Suovanen -

if you are replacing the iphone x screen with a screen from a different iphone X is everything the same

Luke Squire - Replica

No, you need to transfer the earpiece speaker/ sensor flex cable in order for Face ID to work. If you break/ rip or forget to transfer it the display should still work fine… BUT…. no Face ID :(

Rafael B -

After replacing the display correctly, will the face id work?

Gavino Peluso - Replica

Absolutely. If you did everything without mistakes you’re expecting the screen and all other functions to keep working.

Don’t forget to transfer the old earpiece speaker/ sensor flex cable from your broken screen so you can still use Face ID. That cable is paired by Apple to the logic board.

Rafael B -

Great work on the instructions on removing the lcd from my Iphone X. I ended up dropping it from my lap when I got out of the car and place a hairline crack but the screen still completely worked. I ended up purchasing a replacement oled and a glass to replace the cracked screen on a later time. All the info provided here is always right on point.

i dont know what happened but im not getting poor WiFi and Bluetooth and cellular reception is there any thing wrong with the fame that comes with the new display replacement?

Mani Reddy - Replica

Exceptionally detailed and clear guide.

I tried to clean off display adhesive right away upon opening. Found it’s much easier once the 4 connectors are detached and the display screen separated from the rest of the phone. As for the battery, OLED and digitizer cable connectors, a fingernail works best for me to catch the edges without harming the black silicone seal around each of the connectors. The spudger is a bit less precise and without the same tactile finesse.

Thanks, Jeff Suovanen.

Robert Briggs - Replica

True Tone can be restored with a screen programmer, although the programmer itself costs ~$50 or more—so it’s more economical if you’re doing more than one screen repair. We’ll have a guide with instructions for using the programmer sometime in the next month or so. If that’s something you’re interested in, keep your old screen—you’ll need to use the programmer to clone some data from the old screen to the new one.

Guten Tag, habe den goldenen Endungskontakt verloren. Nach dem Umbau, funktioniert mein Face ID nicht mehr. Gibt es Möglichkeiten den Endungskontakt zu kaufen. Habe im Internet nichts gefunden.

k.karaguelle - Replica

salve, una domanda

perché dopo smontaggio e sostituzione dello schermo il riconoscimento facciale non funziona più?

Riccardo Mazzoni - Replica

Perché il face id come il touch id è associato alla scheda madre, ora se ha portato tutte le componenti dallo schermo rotto a quello nuovo dovrebbe funzionare mentre se ha acquistato uno schermo pre assemblato chiaramente non funzionerà mai.

Se invece rientra nel primo caso e ancora non funziona i connettori potrebbero non essere connessi correttamente o uno dei componenti del face id danneggiati (la cosa più probabile sono i flex cable che si rompono con niente durante la sostituzione)

Gabriel Vendrame -

A certificated Shop told me that the displays have to be coded that the True Tone works, I see they use a special software, and then the True Tone works. Have someone Informationen about the software they used to code the display. The touch reaction after the coding work also exactly like the original. I need to know more about their calibration software.

However, I just completed this repair (twice…), and I’m not a happy camper. The first screen they sent me had really weird graphical glitching/tearing. The second replacement screen has a bright off-color “hot spot” right in the middle. The digitizer is pretty bad…it barely registers a “Reachability” swipe, and it frequently registers phantom touches and completely misses swipes/touches. The cherry on top is that it also drains my battery noticeably more quickly.

I’m not satisfied with this replacement. It’s non-trivial to change the screen and there’s no way for you to properly test it prior to taking your phone apart, so it’s a REALLY bad customer experience to receive a screen that never should have passed QA. I don’t know if all of these cheaper screens fail so miserably at correctly registering touches or if I’m just the unluckiest person in the world but I wouldn’t take my chances.

I used this guide to simply cleaning out my speakers and jt worked fine. But I’m now having a display issue where right side of my screen is white/pink lines. Any clues on why this happening? I’ve tried plugging in the display multiple times and still the same results.

I followed this guideline to fix my iPhone X with LCD screen. Worked for several weeks, but completely died one day after charging. Sometimes there is also mistake touching and wrong displayed pictured like false color. Disappointing.

What adhesive do you recommend for reattaching the earpiece speaker on to the replacement display?

Completed the replacement of the screen on an iPhone X. First, I HATE y000 screws! I think this is Apple’s way of trying to dissuade users from attempting a repair no matter how adept they are at repairing electronic equipment. Pentalobe is fine, I can work with them. Second, big fail (IMHO) on no warning about removing the protective film on the BACK of the screen. It’s not obvious that the film needs to be removed. As this was the first time repairing an iPhone X I did not pick up on removing the film until I could not get the touch function to work. Had to disassemble the screen to remove the film once I realized it needed to come off. A caveat sticker on the packing material would be a nice touch. As the repair was a success I am pleased. The instructions were very good especially the link to the adhesive installation. Could use a note of caution when cleaning around the bottom ground contacts. The fingers appear to be foil and are easily damaged.

Jim Breef - Replica

Sorry for the trouble there. Removing the film is mentioned in the conclusion: “Compare your new replacement part to the original part—you may need to transfer remaining components or remove adhesive backings from the new part before installing.” In other words, the new part should look just like the replacement part before you continue. So I guess the question is, were these instructions unclear (in which case, maybe we should rephrase)—or, did you not notice them at all? (In which case, maybe we should make them more prominent.) Good job working through it though. Congrats on a successful repair!

Hello Jeff,

My iphone X screen is blue and have a black spot on the left, progressively becoming big since the phone felt down.

I found this a great help when replacing my iphone screen, but now my screen is not responding to the touch function, it was fine when I tested it, then when I charged the battery it stopped working. The instructions are great though and I’ll use them again when I get another new screen and hope this one works!

For anyone saying that true tone will not work after a screen replacement, there is a way. You just need an iPhone screen reprogrammer. There’s one online called the JC PRO1000S which is used to transfer the phones serial number onto the new display so true tone will work again. If you can’t afford the JC PRO100S, just get the JC V1 which can be found here:

This is the JC PRO1000S

You’ll need to download a program after getting the product, but after that you should be good to go.

For anyone going to question how I know this, I watch a lot of Hugh Jefferys videos.

Keep in mind this will only work with the iPhone 7 and later.

im using the JC-V1 and JCID-V1S, it only works to move the (true tone) info if the new screen have a working EEPROM chip.

I’m planning to do a display replacement for iPhone X, but do I need to transfer/programming anything to new display to be sure that display, FaceID and etc. to works?

ibo - Replica

If you want true tone to work on the new screen you have to move the serial/software with a programmer tool to the new screen, for face id to work on new screen you just have to move the thingy at the top of the screen, it have a flex cabel that connects to the motherboard, if unclear there´s beter comments further up.

tobiasagren -

hi, I replaced the screen, I followed the guide to the letters and I passed the sensor of the face id with the upper speaker from the old screen to the new one, but once everything is mounted, the face id does not work and neither does the speaker. but if I take them off the screen and connect them without the screen, the face id works and so does the speaker. Why?

Will tap-to-wake still work with the replacement display even if I don’t have a NAND reprogrammer?

Noah Lach - Replica

doyou sell something to glue bacck again the display to the phone?

Alvaro Arce - Replica

Yes! Use this display adhesive for the phone.

Thank you iFixit! Love your guides and your products.

Just fixed my iPhone X screen for the first time using your replacement screen and kit.

Additionally, I have used your guides and products to fix multiple iPhone 6 screens and replace the battery. You help me keep my phone in working order for 4-5 years

I bought the screen and tool kit set, followed these instructions to the letter, and successfully breathed new life into my son’s iPhone X. The only thing I would add to this is that you should use blue thread lock to keep these tiny screws from backing out. Even with it, I found some of the screws very loose when I removed them, which may be because the phone gets hot, but it doesn’t hurt. The trickiest part was replacing the waterproof display adhesive, but with the way the template backings were set up, it made it very easy to get it lined up and properly placed. The trick is to go slow. Thanks, iFixit! Another quality product!

Only comment would to add a re-assembly. Give new people some confidence following along even though its just the opposite to put together again. Really nice write up and video guide though!

followed the instructions, now receiving a 4013 error. I was told I might need to swap the chip in my old display to the new display. How do I do this.

Tanya Wright - Replica

Great step by step articel thanks. I have just followed and replaced cracked screen on iphone X.

All went as per the diagrams and phone works fine except the front facing (selfie) camera no longer works. Weirdly the rear camera is fine but selecting the selfie camera shows a blury version of the rear camera picture! Any ideas what could cause that. It was definately working before the screen replacement but I have triple checked and no cables are damaged and all seated properly. What would cause the front camera to play up?

Scuba Al - Replica

Article is great, but i can't find a proper screen replacement for mi Iphone X (its a A1865), i bought two, and both are way thicker and have a metal frame attached to them, but the original screen i'm taking out doesn't have it, neither it has the Speaker and FaceID sensors attached to it, they are in the phone side. Any advice on how to proceed?

I lost the golden thingy in step 22, what funktion(s) will be lost, when I reassamble the phone without it?

joel hallo - Replica

i follwed all the instructions very well…but my screen is just black …what could be the problem?

Dalitso Garth - Replica

Hi Dalitso Garth! Potentially, the issue could be caused by an incorrectly seated cable like the display and/or battery cable or a faulty replacement part. I'd recommend following our troubleshooting checklist: Troubleshooting Problems After a Repair. There is also a specific troubleshooting page for the iPhone X: iPhone X Won't Turn On.
