How to replace the iPhone XI Battery 2019

 Switching off your device

Turn your iPhone off completely to avoid damaging it during the repair. Press and hold the Standby button and one of the two volume keys for three seconds, until the “Power off” slider appears. Swipe the slider from left to right. Now your iPhone will shut down completely, which can take about ten seconds.

Switching off  Iphone 11

Removing the back cover screws

You need a pentalobe screwdriver (PL1) to open the iPhone X.

Remove the two pentalobe screws at the bottom edge of the back cover. They’re to the right and left of the Lightning connector. Put the screws in the same box of your magnetic pad.

 Removing the display

 Removing the display iphone 11

Put your iPhone X on a soft, clean surface to avoid scratching the back.

To lift the front panel, you need a suction cup, a hard plastic pick and a heat gun. If the screen is severely cracked, cover all of it with packing tape before you continue.

The screen is glued to the frame. Use a heat gun to heat the outer edges of the display to about 60°C (140°F).

Place the suction cup over the Home button (if possible) or next to it. While lifting the screen with the suction cup, insert the hard plastic pick between the steel frame and the display frame and press down the steel frame.

Do not insert your tool more than 5 mm into the gap, so you don’t damage small parts inside the iPhone.

If you are using an iFlex, switch to a plastic pick as soon as possible to avoid scratching the frame.

Because the display’s glued on, you have to slide the pick all around the iPhone between the aluminum frame and the display frame. Don’t stick the pick in too far on the side where the Sleep/Wake button is because that could damage the display flex cables.

Now use the pick to push up the display so the tabs disengage from the steel frame. Then you can fold the display over to the side.

Rest the display on a stable object to avoid straining the sensitive flex cables.

Heat the outer edge of the frame several times if necessary.

After being opened, your iPhone X loses its guarantee for dust and spray water protection (IP 67 rating).

 Disconnecting the battery

Before starting the repair, disconnect the battery contact to prevent short circuits and avoid accidentally turning on your device during the repair.
