How to Replace iPhone 5 Battery (A DIY Guide)

2018-05-07

For some, it may be a cheap alternative to learn how to replace an iPhone 5 Battery. If you are considering this option, you must first understand how to remove a battery from the iPhone 5:

  1. Power off your device.
  2. Remove the two pentalobe screws near the Lightning connector.
  3. Press a suction cup to the screen just above the home button. (Use tape first to cover and seal the screen in the case that it is cracked.)
  4. Press down gently on the edges of the phone and lift up with the suction cup. The front and back panels will separate slightly.
  5. Insert plastic opening device between the panels and gently pry around the edges, detaching the clips on the right and left sides that hold the case together.
  6. Lift the front panel up about 90 degrees from the rear panel with the tops still close together (as there will still be ribbon cables attached at the top).
  7. Locate the silver front panel assembly cable bracket to the top right-hand side of the battery. Unscrew the three screws attaching it to the logic board (and pay attention to where each individual screw goes).
  8. Lift and remove the front panel assembly cable bracket. Locate the three cables hidden beneath, and disconnect these with the plastic opening tool.
  9. Completely separate the front and rear panels of the phone.
  10. Locate metal battery connector bracket to the lower right side of the battery. (It looks like a skinny backward [J.") Remove the two lower screws on the metal battery connector bracket.
  11. Use the plastic opening tool to gently pry the battery connector bracket up from the socket on the logic board. Take care not to pry up the socket, or you could damage the connector.
  12. Pull slowly and smoothly on the clear plastic pull tab until your battery detaches and comes free. If it does not come free, you can use the plastic opening tool. But be warned that doing so in the wrong place may permanently damage the logic board.
  13. Replace battery and all parts in reverse. Power on your device and voila!

(Think carefully before you decide on this course of action. Opening up your device will nullify warranties that may still exist on your device. In addition, internal repairs are always best handled by experts like those at CPR so that no further damage comes to your device.)

Age, use, settings, and defects are all aspects to take into consideration when assessing if you might need any phone battery replacement. You may choose to live with a battery at a lower capacity, talk with an Apple store Genius, or even try to figure out how to replace an iPhone 5 battery yourself with our DIY guide.

If you need help making this decision, CPR is here to help! With stores across the country and in Canada, you can walk in and get a free consultation to discover if your iPhone 5 battery is at high capacity or if it needs repair. They will also provide you with an estimate that you can compare with Apple`s iPhone 5 Battery Replacement service and cost. Forget the hassle of doing the repair yourself and potentially further damaging your device. With CPR, you will get personal service and have your phone back in your hands and running smoothly again within a day or two.
