A Step-by-Step Guide on Repairing and Replacing iPhone 11 Screen
Once the repair person has all the tools they might need for the procedure, they get started. The very first thing they do is shut off your iPhone to protect it from damage. Then, they move on to the technical part of the procedure, which commonly includes:
- Removing the Pentalobe Screws
At the base of the iPhone 11, there are two small screws known as the pentalobe screws. The screws need to be removed so the screen can be dismantled.
- Carefully Loosening the Screen
After the pentalobe screws are taken out, the next thing to come off is the screen itself. A heating gun might be required to loosen the glue from the phone’s edges.
- Disconnecting the Display Connectors
There are three display connectors that are linked to the earpiece, touch panel, and LCD display. However, to disconnect them, the repair specialist has to lift off a metal plate that is used to hold them down.
- Taking out the Earpiece
The ear cup is usually set in place via four screws that need to be unscrewed so it can be taken out in one piece.
- Removing the Sensor and Earpiece Flex Cable
The iPhone has multiple sensors and cables that also must be disconnected for the screen to come undone.
- Pulling out the Back Plate
In order to reach the display panel, the repair specialist has to lift up the metal plate at the back, protecting it.
- Preparing the New Display Unit
Once access to the display panel is acquired, the new display is prepped for the screen swap.
- Putting Everything Back Together
After successfully installing the new display panel, the repair specialist will slowly start putting things back in order so that all the removed components are back in their places.
- Checking the iPhone
In order to make sure things are running smoothly, your iPhone 11 will be put to the test as the screen repair professional will check for its touch reaction, volume, camera, etc.
- Screwing the Pentalobe Screws Back into Place
Lastly, if everything goes accordingly and your iPhone 11’s screen repair is complete, the final step will be implemented. That is, the pentalobe screws will be screwed in their respective standings, clasping the iPhone shut.
