Introduzione

Per una piu semplice riparazione, usa i nostri product|IF332-049|fix kit|new_window=true] e segui questa piccola guida per sostituire l'intero gruppo display.

Per i riparatori piu avanzati, questa guida ti aiuterà a sostituire solamente il display+touch dell'Phone 7. (detto anche pannello anteriore).Questo richiede di trasferire alcuni componenti dal tuo vecchio display a quello nuovo prima di installarlo—incluso il gruppo fotocamera anteriore, l'altoparlante voce, la schermatura LCD e l sensore home/Touch ID.

Per tutte le riparazioni di display, è importante trasferire con cautela il sensore originale home/Touch ID sul nuovo display per farlo funzionare. Il pulsante allo stato solido è abbinato alla scheda madre da Apple, quindi sostituirlo lo renderà inutilizzabile.

  1. Prima di iniziare, scarica la batteria del tuo iPhone sotto il 25%. Una batteria al litio-ioni carica può incendiarsi e/o esplodere se forata accidentalmente.
    • Prima di iniziare, scarica la batteria del tuo iPhone sotto il 25%. Una batteria al litio-ioni carica può incendiarsi e/o esplodere se forata accidentalmente.

    • Spegni il tuo iPhone prima di cominciare a smontarlo.

    • Lo smontaggio del display dell'iPhone danneggerà le guarnizioni impermeabili. Se non sostituirai le guarnizioni, il tuo telefono non sarà più impermeabile.

    • Rimuovi le due viti pentalobe da 3,4 mm nella parte inferiore del tuo iPhone.

    Can anyone confirm 7/7P's pentalobe screws have a ring of seal near the screw head?

    Cooper Chase - Replica

    Confirmed, the screws have a black ring seal around the head.

  2. Se il vetro del display è rotto, l'uso del nastro adesivo sulla superficie impedisce alla rottura di espandersi e previene danni fisici dovuti alle schegge di vetro.
    • Se il vetro del display è rotto, l'uso del nastro adesivo sulla superficie impedisce alla rottura di espandersi e previene danni fisici dovuti alle schegge di vetro.

    • Stendi delle strisce sovrapposte di nastro adesivo da pacchi trasparente sul display dell'iPhone fino a coprire l'intera superficie.

      • In questo modo i frammenti di vetro resteranno uniti tra loro e potrai lavorare su un elemento strutturalmente integro quando dovrai staccare e sollevare il display.

    • Indossa occhiali di sicurezza per proteggere gli occhi da pezzi di vetro che potrebbero volare in giro durante la riparazione.

    • Se, a causa della rottura, risulta difficile far attaccare una ventosa come è descritto nei passi successivi, puoi provare a ripiegare un pezzo di nastro molto tenace (come il nastro americano) per farne una maniglia e sollevare con questo il display.

    In case of broken glass you can make the suction cup much more effective by covering the glass with a broad piece of translucent tape which eliminate air leakage through cracks in the glass.

    Il n’est pas nécessaire de mettre beaucoup de scotch.

    Au contraire plus vous mettez de scotch, plus il y aura de défauts et la ventouse ne collera pas.

    Une bande bien positionnée suffit.

    I’ve used hot glue on low setting to remove all types of crystals. The hot glue will release with a little iso alcohol. No damage to glass or plastic faced crystals or screens. Use a narrow piece of wood as a prying handle.

    • L'applicazione di calore sul bordo inferiore dell'iPhone aiuta ad ammorbidire l'adesivo di fissaggio del display, rendendo più semplice l'apertura.

    • Usa un asciugacapelli o prepara un iOpener e applica calore per circa un minuto per ammorbidire l'adesivo sottostante.

    ¿Cuántos segundos son los recomendados?

    joscarlos91 - Replica

    It is a process. I heated the lower area of the phone with a hair dryer on and off (1min each) about 3-4 times before I was able to get the provided tool in.

    Dan - Replica

    I suggest using a hairdryer. I used the iOpener for maybe 30 mins to no avail. However, when I used the hairdryer the screen came of much quicker.

    Michael - Replica

    • Applica una ventosa alla metà inferiore del gruppo display, appena sopra il pulsante home.

      • Assicurati che la ventosa non si sovrapponga al pulsante home, altrimenti non farebbe tenuta sul vetro.

    The glass is completely cracked and the suction cup doesn't work because it gets air in between. any tip?

    Display is glued and doesn't come off.

    support - Replica

    A wide, single strip of packing tape, well placed, will solve this for you. :)

    Mimic44444 - Replica

    Last comment works well. Thank you !

    Using packing tape for a cracked screen should be included in the description in Step 3.

    Cracked screen is most probably the reason you are replacing it.

    Arni Benediktsson - Replica

    • Tira la ventosa fino a creare una piccola fessura tra il gruppo display e il case posteriore.

    • Inserisci l'estremità piatta di uno spudger nella fessura.

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

    This was SO hard for me to do with the spudger. I couldn’t get a gap to insert it because my phone was so cracked (even though I used tape on the front) to get a solid seal with the suction cup. I ended up taking a VERY thin knife and inserting it straight down to make the initial break that allowed me to insert the spudger.

    jessica harlow - Replica

    I’ve given up using a plastic spudger to try to open any of these phones. I use a metal one with a flat base and a very sharp end…close to a razor. As long as I’m careful, it won’t slip and scratch the base. It’s much easier than using these plastic spudgers.

    mcr4u2 -

    Im trying to get the screen off right now and my phone is not cracked and its still a pain

    Jordon Johnson - Replica

    Using a blow dryer was extremely helpful and using the suction cup towards one of the lower edges was also helpful

    Jordon Johnson - Replica

    This is not working for me. How long does the heat need to be applied? Still trying right now…. =/

    Chris Gallego - Replica

    Apply hair dryer for at least 1 minute. I inserted the tip end of a thin mini screwdriver and with some force, pryed it open and inserted my plastic spudger to continue the separation process. It worked, just be patient.

    Please wear protective glasses! My iPhone glass was severely cracked, when separating the glass a corner area of broken glass exploded in my face. Apply transparent tape over the broken glass to contain the shards.

    amberron - Replica

    I second Jessica’s January 8 comment.  I just finished a battery replacement on my iPhone 7 and this step was the most nerve-wracking part.  I ended up using a sharper (but not razor-sharp) metal object to get this done with confidence (tried the spudger and guitar pick but not thin enough).  The tool I used was the exact duplicate of what iFixIt calls “iSesamo Opening Tool” in their tool selection.  I did the heat up with a hair dryer (after attempts with an iOpener hot pad) and the secret (as Jessica also noted)  was to not use the angle of attack shown in the pictures, but to push it in more vertically along the bottom edge while pulling up on the suction cup.  From there you can easily lever the tool to the lower angle-of-attack (as shown in the picture).  I actually used the metal tool for most of the perimeter as well, just don’t go deep (you don’t need to).  Notes: my display was intact, and I was able to pull up fairly hard with a glass screen protector still on it.

    Ted - Replica

    This is frustrating. I heated the lower edge with a hair dryer for 1 min on high about 3-4 times. In between each heat cycle, I rocked the suction cup back and forth. I was eventually able to create significant space for the provided tool. This takes a lot of patience. Once the space was created, it was very easy to remove the screen.

    Has anyone else noticed very small squares of rubber with a circle cut through it (I think they fall off into the phone when dismantling)?

    I just replaced my screen and worked out that these are actually a wee pocket that slips over the pentalobe screw holes on the replacement screen. I’m not sure if it’s an additional water resisting mechanism or if it’s to add additional traction for the screws

    • Rimuovi le seguenti viti con testa tri-wing Y000 dalla staffa inferiore del connettore:

      • Tre viti da 1,2 mm

      • Una vite da 2,4 mm

    • Nel corso dell'intera riparazione, tieni traccia di ogni vite e assicurati che ciascuna verrà rimessa esattamente al suo posto per evitare di danneggiare il tuo iPhone.

    Ahhh shoot! accidentally ordered tri-wing vs tri-point (must have just looked for y000).. It seems they only did this to annoy repair folks because not everything is tri-point on the phone...

    Steve - Replica

    Just FYI, if you have an iFixit set with the PH000 you can use that bit to remove the Y000 if you're in a bind.

    Colton Neifert - Replica

    These screws just spin for me. They don't back out, but the heads aren't stripped either. I've tried applying backpressure to help lift the screws, but no luck

    • Rimuovi la staffa inferiore del connettore.

    my battery cable connector was stuck to the bottom of this metal bracket plate so be careful when you lift it off

    Josh Martin - Replica

    This may have been intentionally done by Apple to make sure the battery gets disconnected before any other connector is disconnected. So always make sure to disconnect the battery before disconnecting and reconnecting the connectors for the display.

    Oscar Moreno - Replica

    • Usa l'estremità a punta di uno spudger per sollevare il connettore della batteria dal suo zoccolino sulla scheda logica.

    • Piega leggermente di lato il cavo del connettore per impedire che possa far contatto con lo zoccolino e quindi possa alimentare il telefono.

    Aggiungi Commento

    • In questo passo, accertati che la batteria sia scollegata quando disconnetti o riconnetti i cavi.

    • Usa l'estremità piatta di uno spudger o un'unghia per staccare i due connettori inferiori del display sollevandoli verso l'alto dai loro zoccolini sulla scheda logica.

    • Per riconnettere questi cavi, premi da un'estremità finché senti il clic che indica il blocco, poi ripeti l'operazione dall'altro lato. Non premere in mezzo. Se il connettore è anche lievemente disallineato, il connettore può piegarsi, portando a danni permanenti.

    • Se dopo aver rimontato il telefono ti ritrovi con uno schermo bianco, linee bianche sul display oppure se manca, del tutto o in parte, la risposta touch, prova a staccare e riattaccare con cura entrambi questi cavi e assicurati che siano ben bloccati in posizione.

    • Rimuovi le due viti Phillips da 1,3 mm che fissano la staffa sopra il connettore del gruppo sensore del pannello frontale.

    • Rimuovi la staffa.

    Has anyone had trouble getting these two screws off? I’ve been working on these for about 10 minutes and the LEFT screw wont spin. It seems like the little PH000 screwdriver bit won’t even grip it. (The one of the right comes off, no problem)

    It looks like I’ll have to pick this project up again with a screwdriver that will actually take off this piece.

    Makana Sylva - Replica

    The right screw kept spinning, tried different levels of force but didn’t work. I left the screw on and bent the shield to get to the cable.

    s h - Replica

    I used a #1 flat head tip to loosen.

    Peter Pearson - Replica

    I couldn’t get the two screws out either—used the correct screw tip and everything. Stripped the screw. Will now attempt to just keep the cable attached…..

    Therese Peffer - Replica

    Use the PH000 and apply a little more force before spinning, should come right out!

    Sierra Scolaro - Replica

    • Stacca il connettore del gruppo sensore del pannello frontale dal suo zoccolino sulla scheda logica.

    • Questo connettore a pressione deve essere riconnesso un'estremità alla volta per minimizzare il rischio di piegatura.

  3. When removing the screen, be aware of the two tiny square black rubber grommets on the Penelope screw brackets that secure the screen. They can fall off very easily and be lost without even knowing it (it happened to me, but was lucky enough to find them).

    Why is the screw over top of the home button so difficult to get out… has anyone else experienced this..? This is twice now I've struggled to get that screw

    Brandon - Replica

    The screw to the left holding the heatshield is never mentioned in this guide

    Beerbo - Replica

    No reason to touch that screw unless you’re removing the shield—in which case, this step instructs you to remove it.

    Jeff Suovanen -

    So I stripped the screw furthest to the left, how can i possibly remove it now? Can I just buy a new LCD shield and home bracket button and screw and will that work just fine on the new screen replacement? this stripped screw of mine is not coming out

    Bryan Ferrer - Replica

    That should work, as long as you can still get the home button/sensor out without damage. For removing a stripped screw this size, I’d probably try supergluing it to the driver—or else just drill the top of the screw off and then remove the bracket, leaving the screw shaft embedded in the old display. Good luck!

    Jeff Suovanen -

    I used the same driver for all of these screws. Had to apply a lot of pressure before trying to unscrew it and it was fine.

    jessica harlow - Replica

    This is wrong, the size you need is Y00 for the 1.1mm screws and Y000 for the 1.3mm one.

    Robert Clark - Replica

    The heads on those screws are identical. I’ve never had any trouble using a Y000 for all of them. Use whatever works for you I guess.

    Jeff Suovanen -

    I’ve managed to strip the screw on the right hand side - not the far right, just right of the home button. Any ideas on how to get it out without glue (I don’t have any)

    Christie Ellen - Replica

    My screwdriver is too big to get out the screws

    Coolinee Kerman - Replica

    My eyesight isn’t what it used to be. That said, the replacement screen that arrived already had screws in the two outside positions. It took me a minute to figure this out when I was trying to install the home button. I couldn’t figure out why the screws weren’t going in. I thought the holes were filled or something… Nope. screws. Took them out and used them.. all good.

    Critter - Replica

    My 7 had quite a bit of loctite holding these bad boys on. I stripped the one to the right of the home button and after using many “sentence enhancers” I was able to remove it using good tweezers and quite a bit of hand strength. I think that heating up the screws here is not an option because the cables lie underneath the plate and would probably get damaged from the amount of heat needed to loosen the loctite. Be patient here, and maybe have spare Y000 drivers because you may damage your driver getting these screws out.

    P Park - Replica

    If your having trouble. I recommend you guys to buy the Y00o driver at amazon. It look golden. It works very will .

    Jonathan curz - Replica

    Read instead of: “Remove the four Y000 screws”. “Remove the four Philips 00 screws”. Thats the case what occurs to me.

    Well, I just damaged the home button connector in step 31. It is completely off the cable. What now? Can I buy this home button?

    LadyTech - Replica

    I think you can not do it because your phone is not identify for new cable.

    Ali Alsaed - Replica

    Best thing to do here is to NOT pry up on the connector, but to insert the pry tool on the left side until the connector is dislodged.

    Oscar Moreno - Replica

    use one pry tool to hold down, another to pull up.

    Christa - Replica

    • Muovi delicatamente il cavo di interconnessione del pulsante home allontanandolo dal cavo del pulsante home.

      • Non cercare di staccare completamente il connettore a pressione: sollevalo semplicemente in modo che non dia fastidio quando rimuovi il cavo del sensore home/Touch ID.

    Make sure that you fold this cable out when fitting your replacement before you fasten the shield back down. I didn’t but managed to loosen 2 screws on the shield to get the cable out.

    chris_sawyer - Replica

    • Gira sull'altro lato il gruppo display e applica un iOpener caldo al sensore home/Touch ID per circa 90 secondi.

    • Questo aiuta ad ammorbidire l'adesivo che tiene in posizione il delicato cavo del sensore.

    • Usa con delicatezza una levetta di apertura per separare l'adesivo che fissa il cavo del sensore home/Touch ID al retro del pannello display.

    It cannot be stressed enough that this is the one part of this repair that you can’t screw up. Anything else you’ll deal with during this repair can be easily replaced (The screen, and the sensor/microphone/camera assembly). Tearing this cable means an expensive trip to the apple store. or a very unhappy customer if you’re doing this for someone. Heat is your friend. I don’t even use a spudger or a guitar pick for this one, I use a new playing card to pull this up. Even with the card, you have to be careful. The edge of the playing card can nick the cable if you’re not careful to get it under the ribbon cable. If the adhesive isn’t soft enough for the card to get it up, apply more heat. Again, you can’t screw this step up. It’s all or nothing.

    Spartan99 - Replica

    • Rimuovi il gruppo sensore home/Touch ID.

    True to this picture, the home button can only be removed (and put back in place) through the front of the LCD assembly.

    Talon - Replica

    Very good comment Talon. That was the first thing I was looking for here. There should be a bullet point in step 24 - Carefully remove home button from front of display being careful not to damage cable.

    Tracey - Replica

    Had an issue when putting the screen back on, the side where the cables attach would not sit flush. At first I thought the cables were pushing the screen up. Turned out to be the battery cable shield was just a fraction too far down toward home button. After loosening screws, nudging it up slightly and screwing back in, the screen sat flush as it should. In case anyone else has same issue.

    Marco Cueva - Replica

    I just checked the screw measurements and they match what’s shown in the guide. Are you sure you’re looking at the right screws?Are you sure your caliper is accurate? Was your iPhone serviced in the past and reassembled incorrectly? Something isn’t right. The measurements here are the screw lengths, by the way—just in case you were measuring something else.

    Aggiungi Commento

    • Usa uno spudger per staccare delicatamente dalla sua sede sul pannello frontale il sensore di luce ambiente.

      • Cerca di infilare completamente il tuo attrezzo sotto il sensore per poterlo staccare dalla plastica trasparente sottostante. Se fai leva agendo solo sul cavo, il sensore potrebbe separarsi dal gruppo del cavo e quindi richiedere la sostituzione. Se invece devi sostituire comunque il gruppo sensore/cavo, non c'è problema.

    I’m sorry to comment but this step is wrong. The proximity sensor is sticked to the display. I was following this instruction and the sensor was unvelded from the flex cable. Now it’s workless. It’s a fortune that the only problem with the iPhone is that while calling and holding the phone to the ear, the display doesn’t turn off.

    I recommend to gently pushing against the transparent plastic enclosure near the sensor and once it’s unsticked, keep pushing against the sensor’s body. In this way the sensor welding doesn’t bear/support any extra load on it.

    At least, my iPhone 7G had the sensor sticked to the display. Maybe some day I will replace it (around 20€ - 25€ on ebay)

    I won't claim to iFixit nor stop using this website. Whenever I higly recommend to iFixt technitians to revise such kind of “errors”. At least for expensive devices like Apple products.

    I d’ont think the screw size is correct, because i had to order a new heat shield plate, because my original broke during the replacement.

    Marco Burkhalter - Replica

    I found if I held the flat end of a spudger behind the screw while I unscrewed, it worked well. Otherwise there was too much flex to get a good grip on the screw.

    Travis Hogg - Replica

    good tip! Yes, there is indeed too much flex when removing the screws.

    amberron -

    My screws are too tight that I can't unscrew it. What should I do?

    I have had this problem so far on all the red tri point screws. The first screw, the home button, and 4/6 of these. I have noticed little to no advice on each one or for stripped screws. I have been able to manage so far but not sure about this one.

    kimberly klassy -

    Here, I was able to use a soldering iron on the back side of the screw to get it quite hot to release the INSANE amount of loctite that was applied to my 7. Be patient and let the screw get hot. If you try to move the screw with the Y000 and it doesn’t move, WAIT. Don’t strip the screw or your driver.

When I took off the home button, a small black square rubber piece fell out. while prying off the cable.

Can anyone tell me where this is supposed to go when I put the home button back on.

The small black square that fell off is originally located on the bottom pentalobe screw bracket on the screen. It can slide back over it if you place it right.

Thank you!!!

useless guide without a guide how to mount it all back on.

The home button wont fit back in its whole

You have to put the flex through the hole from the front, and set the button against the front of the screen. Just like you got it out, in reverse.

Eric Davies -

The home button is a very delicate assembly. Once you have the home button's cable off the back of the display, and the screws off, push it lightly out from the back of the display. It should fall out.

Would be nice to show the process of making it watertight again.

I have tried to fit 2 different lcd’s to an iphone 7 and the phone keeps going to apple logo and then black but when I disconnect the home button the phone load up

I have completed the screen repair, although now the iPhone takes minutes to boot up and then keeps freezing when trying to use it. I have connected the old screen just in case it’s the new screen that’s the issue although it still appears to be the same. Also now when I connect the camera flex at the top the iPhone just boot loops. I have also tried a new Camera flex with the same result. Can anyone help with either of these problems?

When reassembling the home sensor and the front camera without using any adhesive, how will that affect the end result? Or is it implicit that you should use adhevise of some sort when reassembling?

How do i get adhesive to make the phone waterproof again and where can I get a good lcd to replace my damaged one

Iyinoluwa Ayedegbe - Replica

Hi, you can find a new LCD here, and new adhesive here. Replacing the adhesive won’t guarantee that the phone is waterproof again, but it certainly helps.

Adam O'Camb -

It has been mentioned here through virtue of the fact that Joe in PA queried what the rubber grommets were for after prying off the home button ribbon cable, if this is for a replacement LCD it might be worth adding a step advising that these need to be removed carefully by sliding them up and off the pentalobe screw brackets with tweezers as they’ll need to be moved across to the replacement screen, 3rd party replacements don’t come with them fitted.

With a little time and patience, I switched out the lcd screen. My only issues are that even though i used the same home button, the finger print feature no longer works and the screen is way to sensitive that it has to be put on speaker phone for calls because my cheek touches the phone. i’ve been trying to find out if there is an adhesive that is supposed to be on the back of the lcd screen when i reassembled it or anything else i can do to remedy this frustrating issues.

Is your screen illuminated while you talk? If so, the proximity sensor may not be seated properly, or broken. Trying to understand what you mean by the screen being too sensitive.

If I am harvesting another iPhone 7 for parts, do I need to remove everything from the screen? I know I need to move the home button for touch ID, but can I just leave other things like the front facing camera alone, or are those tied to the logic board too?

d0rk4l - Replica

The home button’s Touch ID is the only thing that’s tied to the logic board. All the other small parts on the screen can be freely replaced or moved to another iPhone 7 and will retain functionality.

HELP strange situation. Bought an iPhone 7 stuck in a boot loop and cracked screen. Home button working fine. Fixed boot loop, restored- but after swapping the home button across to the new screen I’m finding the home button has stopped working. The home button still works fine from the old cracked screen... I thought the home button was married to the logic board? Any advice??

William Feltner - Replica

I changed an iPhone 7 screen and I Get no display coming up. All connectors are plugged in properly. Help

Installing the adhesive gasket was easy to figure out, however, the instructions on re-assembly should say something about it instead of ignoring it. C’mon, man!

jlauve - Replica

There are extensive instructions linked in Step 19.

I just want to comment that I LOATHE Apple for adding these Y000 screws.

Make sure you get a good Y000 screwdriver, because the crappy one that came with the replacement screen (purchased from Amazon. Sorry iFixit, the person didn’t want to spend the extra money to go with your screen) started to strip when I tried to remove the first few Y000 screws.

I had to keep filing down the screwdriver in order to use it.

So I work at a phone repair shop and went to replace the screen on my iPhone 7 today, and i accidentally grabbed an iPhone 8 screen. To my surprise it works, i don’t see any difference but i’m going to switch it out just to be safe. True tone doesn’t work either ;(

Zachary Larkin - Replica

I have just recently changed my lcd screen on my phone and it would turn on but then when it gets to the home screen it would turn black while still on. I know its on because I could have siri call people up and it would work but I just cant see anything. Help pls!

maria noy - Replica

Home button is going to work or not? you guys got me all confused saying is tied to the logic board, but that i need to change it to make touch id to work on the new screen, so what a !&&*? :(

carloscaste - Replica

You need to keep your original home button and transfer it carefully to the new display, exactly as stated in the guide. If you do that correctly, everything will work fine. You can safely ignore any commenters claiming otherwise; this is how it has worked ever since Touch ID first came out on the iPhone 5s.

Jeff Suovanen -

I used this screen to repair an iPhone 7 and the home button stopped working completely a week after the repair.

Casey Mills -

Hi,

Who had problems with four Y000 screws securing the bracket over the home/Touch ID sensor and three 1.2mm tri-point Y000 screws from either side of the display assembly ? They do not get out and break.
