What You Need for an iPhone 4S Screen Replacement

Did you just break your iPhone 4S Screen? Don’t worry about it. It happens to the best of us. An accidental slip of the hand can spell disaster for the display on an iPhone, but it isn’t as bad you might think.

There is certainly no need to replace the entire phone. Carrying out an iPhone 4s screen repair is a much cheaper option.

Removing the old cracked screen and fitting in a new one yourself isn’t out of the question, but it can be tricky if you don’t know what you are doing. You can usually find a complete iPhone 4S display assembly for less than £70. In addition you will need some specialised tools such as:

• A 5 Point Pentalobe Screwdriver for the iPhone 4S
• Philips Screwdriver
• A small flathead screwdriver
• Plastic opening tool
• SIM card ejector

If you decide to purchase the replacement parts yourself, make sure to get the exact components needed for and iPhone 4s repair job. For example, the display assembly for an iPhone 4 repair won’t be compatible with the 4s variety.

The repair process has quite a few necessary steps. It isn’t as simple as taking the screen out because of the way the iPhone is constructed. First you would remove the rear panel. Loosen the screws holding the battery in place. Detach the battery connector using the plastic opening tool. Remove the dock connector cable, and then the rear camera.

Now use the SIM card ejector to remove the SIM card and the holder. Then remove the cables near the logic board before lifting out the board itself. Carefully take out the speaker enclosure to finally reach the display assembly. Now the screen or display assembly can be replaced.

Each of these steps will need the utmost care and attention to avoid damaging any of the components.

To complete an iPhone 4s screen replacement you will need plenty of patience as all the small parts can be quite fiddly to get back into place.
