    • Keep in mind the fact that this connector is on top when we cut out our old screen. If you want to keep the old one as a spare, steer clear of the top edge while slicing adhesive.

  3. Remove any screen protectors from the device. The screen on this device is badly cracked, and if that's the case with yours as well, it would be a great idea to grab some packing tape. This will provide a good area for our suction cup to grab on to as well as keeping any glass shards stuck to the old screen.

  4. Using an iOpener, heatgun, or similar, evenly apply heat around the device until the device is warm to the touch. Don't dwell on a single spot or heat for too long, we just want to warm up the adhesive in order to weaken it's bond.

  5. After the bottom reaches a good heat, use a suction cup to pry up near the bottom. Once you have a good gap, stick an opening pick inside of the gap, being mindful of the home button sitting beneath. Be careful not to go too deep into the phone near those capacitive back and recent buttons! Keep the pick as flat as possible.

    • Add another opening pick and position them on opposing corners to keep your device open.

  6. Next, work down both edges of the phone, being mindful of the cable on the top. Make sure to go at a downward angle with your pick in order to get down below the screen.

  7. Going no deeper than 3mm, work a pick around to the top, going around the display cable. If you go any deeper, you may sever it. Disregard this if you don't plan on keeping the old screen. After reheating if necessary, sever any remaining adhesive around the top bezel, going no deeper than 5mm.

  8. Heat the display once more near the top, then open the phone from the bottom to the top. Note how the old screen's connector is too short to completely get it off the device.
