Why iPhone Batteries Are Tricky to Replace

To get a more in-depth understanding of replacing an iPhone battery, you can click here to further increase your knowledge on this important topic. What's more, because we've observed that most people choose to have this kind of work done by a professional, we have prepared a list of tips to make the whole process easier.

Preparation Is Key

Preparation is one of the most important steps in the iPhone battery replacement process. It's not like you simply remove the old battery and insert the new one when it comes to iPhones. If you want to have a working smartphone, you will need to prepare it for the replacement process. Here are a few things that might be worth checking out before the actual job begins:
  1. Back up your data if you want to make sure that it's still safe and sound.
  2. Make sure your iPhone is turned off. Otherwise, disconnecting the battery could lead to an electric shock.
  3. Remove the SIM card and any other peripherals you might have attached to your phones such as a memory card or headphones, for example.

How to Replace Your iPhone's Battery with Ease!

Now that we're done with preparation, let's get down to work, shall we? There are several steps that you need to take and each is as important as the other one. Here's everything you need to do:

1. Shut Down Your iPhone and Remove the SIM Card Slot

Start the process by turning off your device and removing any peripherals, such as a memory card or headphones, for example. If you want to make sure that there's no electricity running through your smartphone which might cause some problems during the replacement process, simply disconnect the power cord.

2. Remove the iPhone's Back Panel

You will now need to remove the back panel of your phone and find its screws. Make sure you don't leave any out as they are really small and might easily get lost! Once you've done that, lift the cover using a suction cup or a flat screwdriver; make sure not to damage the cover as you remove it.

3. Pull Out the iPhone's Battery

You will now be able to see your phone's battery. To make things easier for yourself, try using a guitar pick or any other plastic card that won't conduct electricity and will help protect your phone from possible damage during this step. With one end of the card, push down on the metal clips that are securing the battery in place inside your smartphone. After you've done that, pull out the battery with your fingers slowly but firmly until it comes off. You can now discard it!

4. Put Your New Battery in Place

Now all you need to do is attach the new battery by first inserting its negative side (marked with a minus sign), then pressing down on the positive side (marked with a plus sign). Do this slowly and carefully to avoid damaging your device. Once you've done that, attach the back panel of your iPhone and make sure it's firmly attached by checking if all its edges are flush.

5. Put Everything Back in Place

This is a very important step - make sure you put everything back in place before powering up your smartphone. The last thing you need is for something to go wrong during this process! Make sure you attach the SIM card slot and any other peripherals you might have removed earlier, such as headphones or memory cards. Now, power up your phone and check if it works properly; if not, try using it without its back panel to see if you can figure out what the problem is.

Replacing an iPhone battery can be a tricky task if you’ve never done it before. If you're not really into DIY and you simply want a working cell phone without any hassles, we recommend that you go to a professional who will be able to do it for you quickly and efficiently. 
After all, iPhones are very complicated devices that contain various delicate pieces. This makes them more difficult to repair than most other similar electronic devices on the market so finding someone who knows what they're doing is important! Still, you can try doing it on your own by using this guide!
