Introdução

Use this guide to correctly apply replacement adhesive under your iPhone's display after a repair. Replacing the adhesive can help maintain your iPhone's water resistance. The pre-cut adhesive strips are very delicate and are easily damaged if not applied correctly, so you may want to have a spare on hand if following this guide for the first time.

Be sure you purchase adhesive that matches the color of your display to maintain the original look of the phone.

This procedure applies to all iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus, X, XS, XS Max, and SE 2020 models. (Prior models did not use display adhesive.)

Before you begin, you should have already removed your iPhone's display assembly and set it aside. Detailed display removal instructions for each model can be found at the following links:

    This is important. About half of my old adhesive stuck to the display. Be sure to look under the clips at the top that hold the screen in place. Adhesive there may make it difficult to properly align the screen.

    I used a pre-moistened isopropyl cleaning wipe for eyeglasses, works great and cheap too. Heed the advice to only go in one direction as well - that adhesive will just get pushed all over if you don’t.

    The video shows using a Q-tip with Isopropyl. Don’t use a Q-tip, the cotton will just stick to the remaining adhesive and make it hairy. An eyeglasses cleaning cloth moistened with acetone did the trick for me. Don’t get it drippy wet with the acetone, it may attack some plastics.

    Saw in a different persons YouTube video the battery connector was causing a problem with the film because its disconnected and up, they cut a small slit in the film, Might test laying the film hold the adhesive on the phone before starting and see if thats a problem depending on phone and adhesive. Never hurt to check

  6. Before applying the adhesive, make sure your iPhone's battery connector lays flat so it doesn't press against the blue release liner. It's okay to temporarily reconnect the battery if needed—just be sure to disconnect it again before installing the display. Carefully align the exposed lower edge of the adhesive strip with the bottom edge of your iPhone's case. Once the adhesive is pressed into place, you can't reposition it—you'll have to remove it and start over with new adhesive.

    The three pictures show him peeling the adhesive backing away as he lays the adhisive in the phone. I found it easier to peel the whole backing away and then very carefully align the whole adhesive before gently pressing any of it in place. This way, you can be sure it will line up perfectly and avoid having to redo it.

    Joe Teichert - Responder

    Props to Dwayn Draper for his above comment above. I see no way to do this step without either pressing the battery connector down (which would energize the logic board and perhaps be bad), or cutting a hole in the adhesive backing to accommodate the battery connector while it sticks up. I laid the whole blue thing over the phone and used a sharpie to mark where the connector stuck up. Then I used a sharp pair of scissors to cut out the marked part of the backing. This allowed the adhesive to line up nicely around the edges of the phone.

    Joe Teichert - Responder

    I tried peeling off the whole backing like the comment above suggested and I completely messed up this part. thinking about this next time i would align it first with the backing on, then carefully peel it back, similar to how this ifixit article directs.

    Radd Guarin - Responder

    i destroyed the seal immediately cause of my thumbs not being in the right spot as i tried to peel the protector back a bit… more of a personal error, everything else in my build was easy peasy… i wish it was a bit clearer on the seal where to start from, the picture shown and the protective backing on my seal was slightly different so i wasnt sure if i was starting from the correct side to start peeling away and think that may have led to my error as well…. hopefully i can remember mine isnt waterproof anymore and ill try to replace it again next time something goes wrong on this phone

    douglas - Responder

    Before exposing the adhesive, test fit the packet to see which way it orients. There was several cutouts on mine for the various components which protrude above the perimeter. The adhesive looked pretty symmetrical, but the backing only went one way.

    bradiac - Responder

    This was definitely the most harrowing part of the battery replacement process.

    Anthony - Responder

    This step needs to be done before you mount the battery, if this is the reason why you open your iPhone. The battery connector points up and makes the blue film to curve up and not align properly with the edges of the phone. I know, small details, but this is making the job even harder than already is. Maybe a cut out in the blue film, for that area, would have been useful.

    redishman - Responder

    Booth strips i had with batteries was just top edge too short :(

    Arnolds Balins - Responder

    Peeled off the first sheet, aligned, and then placed. I used one of the existing holes to make a cutout for the battery connector (since I had already inserted the battery when the other guide indicated the adhesive should be placed). Used two sets of tweezers gripping inside the holes to carefully align and place.

    Nicholas Anchor - Responder

    It was OK to re-connect the battery temporarily rather than slicing holes in the plastic. Just be sure to disconnect it again before reconnecting the display.

    Also, I lined up what I thought was the bottom correctly, only to have the top fall short. Looking back, I should have put the plastic sheet entirely within the phone, and not have it overlapping the edge. With an extra pair of hands, we were able to fix the top edge somewhat, but I had placed the plastic about 1mm too low.

  7. Continue peeling away the backing from the adhesive, gently pressing the adhesive into place from the bottom of your iPhone to the top. If you correctly aligned the lower edge of the adhesive, the side and top edges will fall perfectly into place. If the adhesive is misaligned, remove it and start over with fresh adhesive. If you don't have another set of adhesive strips handy, it's okay to temporarily put your iPhone back together and use it normally without any adhesive. Just keep in mind that your iPhone's water resistance will be compromised until you replace the adhesive.

    I’d recommend resting the tip of your spudger against the vertical notch of the edge and press down rather with the side of the tip, just so your hand doesn’t slip inwards causing the nearest bit of glue to unstick.

    Make sure you pull the tab as close to the phone as possible, parallel to the phone. This should lower the probability of the adhesive in the corner separating from the frame. Do NOT pull up and away from the frame!

    If it does separate, just put it back and press it firmly in with the spudger and try again.

  13. Completely separate the front adhesive liner(s) and discard it. At this point you may still have very thin strips of release liner covering all of the adhesive, which prevents it from accidentally sticking to anything while you begin reassembling your iPhone. Don't remove these small release liners just yet.

    spitasky2 - Responder

    The release liners either stuck to the main backing as I pulled it off, or it pulled the adhesive itself away from the phone! Be very careful, or you’ll have a sticky mess trying to get the adhesive back in place.

    Joe Teichert - Responder

    The iphone 6s does not have this thin film so when I was attaching the screen I ruined my adhesive. Not sure why this one is different but it definitely makes things more challenging.

    Brett Gragg - Responder

    Same here. I ended up placing a wide strip cut from the front adhesive liner across the top end where the display cables attach, as well as placing the rear adhesive liner crossways over the phones mid section to help keep from touching and/or damaging the adhesive during reassembly.

    bradiac - Responder

    La même chose pour moi, le kit pour changement de batterie 6S n’avait pas la fine pellicule à enlever juste avant l’assemblage final.

    Ainsi comme montrer dans la vidéo, il est important de tester son écran avant l’assemblage final : il n’était donc pas très simple sans cette pellicule de ne pas toucher l’adhésif en reliant les nappes et en faisant le test.

  23. In order for the adhesive to bond correctly, you'll need to apply even pressure around the perimeter of your iPhone. The camera bump complicates matters, but you can compensate by laying your iPhone face-down and placing coins around the perimeter. You can use coins of any denomination, so long as they are as thick or slightly thicker than the camera bump. If your iPhone has a high-gloss finish, such as Jet Black, add a strip of tape around the perimeter to protect the finish before placing any coins.

    • Using a hair dryer or heat gun, evenly heat the side edges all the way around the iPhone until they are slightly too hot to touch. The heat will help the adhesive form a more complete bond. Don't overheat the iPhone, or you may cause the battery to ignite or damage other heat-sensitive components, like the display.

    Sreeram ASRK - Responder

    Your phone will work fine. This step is more about getting the adhesive to bond securely to help create a waterproof seal. If you don’t have any way to heat it, using more weight and leaving it there for a longer period of time may help.

    Two problems:

    1) The adhesive for the bottom of the phone has a tiny extra lip. My first attempt was to line up the corners rather than the middle. This resulted in the adhesive being be a bit short at the top.

    2) During the final assembly, I could not get the phone to close. Double bad. I tried to peel up the screen to realign and tore one of the screen’s ribbon cables! I just received my second screen and adhesive today.

I just bought few iPhone 7 adhesives from my supplier, and I noticed that the adhesive is not really fitting on the frame.

The iFixit shop pictures show us the iPhone 7 Plus adhesive for black color and the iPhone 7 adhesive for white color.

The iPhone 7 Plus seems to be more precise and correct than the iPhone 7 one : the iPhone 7 Plus one respect the screw hole at upper left corner for example, but the iPhone 7 one doesn’t, it has extra curves (same as iPhone 6s lower left corner) and it doesn’t take up the full width of the frame edge.

Can anyone show us the shape of an original adhesive from a brand new iPhone 7 to compare ?

Martial B - Responder

This was the trickiest part of my screen replacement. Slim double sided adhesives always intimidate me because you only get one chance to line it up. I succeeded on my first attempt by following this guide and taking my time to line up the first edge as best as I could. The sides are the hardest part as they are very thin and I almost failed getting them lined up. Luckily I hadn’t pressed them down and was able to correct my alignment. Good preperation of the phone by removing the old adhesive completely and cleaning the area is my number one recommendation.

Nathan Stark - Responder

Adhesive makes everything harder. I chose to replace the adheasive on my 6s plus during a battery replacement, and it was easily the hardest part. No fault of Ifixit or this guide… the instructions above are spot on. But the cleaning of the adheasive takes forever, easily tripled my total repair time. And its really, really nerve racking to place the new adheasive. I do stuff like that all the time, but this was nuts. The strips are so tiny and delicate! Be really, really careful and take your time. This earns its “moderate” difficulty and then some.

Hi there,

I was wondering, is it okay to replace the screen without replacing the adhesive, will the screen fall off in and places or anything.

Basically i’m asking is it a requirement to replace the adhesive when replacing the screen?

Thank you~

Roberto Bombeeto - Responder

@thymother Not required at all; screws and brackets secure the display, and it’s in no danger of falling out regardless of whether the adhesive is there or not. The adhesive seems to be more for a little extra cushioning during hard-presses and as a dust/water seal.

Sat the phone face down on a paper towel with books on it, while on a 3d printer bed heated to 80 degrees C, for total of about 20 minutes (IR thermometer measured screen/frame at around 65C). Will see how well this holds up…

I would pay extra for a kit that includes an alignment jig for each specific phone type. You only get ONE shot to get the alignment of the adhesive correct, and I’ve never managed to do it.

Either that, or sell the replacement displays with the adhesive already attached to the back of the display assembly so all I have to do is swap over the home button, attach my cables, peel off the protective cover over the adhesive, and just lay it down.

You should add a note that getting isopropyl in the screen will permanently ruin it. Don’t ask me how I know.

Even a brand new phone, sides tend to unstick causing slightly raised bezels. I used a hairdryer and a lot of pressure to reseat the edge. Seems flush and uniform without any lifting

I had to open my iPhone 7 up just to replace a loose screw (I could hear it vibrating next to the taptic engine), and this was the trickiest part. Working with double sided adhesives like this isn’t easy. Best tips would be to clean the old adhesive off really really well, use isopropyl alcohol, and take your time practicing before you remove the cover protection.

Also, don’t remove the last layer of cover protection until after you’ve reconnected the display and verified it’s working. Don’t want to accidentally touch the adhesive while you’re reconnecting the display.

Happy fixing

Everything went very well in replacing the screen on my Apple 8plus…except now the phone won’t accept a charge. I was very careful in all the tasks. I did accidentally let the battery connector make contact while installing the display. What might be the reason the phone is not taking a charge and is there a fix for it? TIA

This helped me to replace my waterproof seal when I replaced my iphone XR screen. Thank you for posting this.

I had troubles removing leftover adhesive (this took me about an hour) - isopropyl alcohol didn’t work well, so I used rubbing alcohol (Benzinum medicinale) which is also being used to remove band aid glue from skin, etc.. It worked, but I cannot recommend it, as I don’t know whether it will attack the surfaces or do some other damage. YOLO

La benzine médicale est un dérivé d’hydrocarbure (alkanes) il est donc possible qu’il attaque les caoutchoucs et surfaces similaires. La concentration de l’alcool joue grandement sur son efficacité comme solvant, et il est donc conseillé d’utilisé un alcool à 90° (l’alcool isopropylique est courament à 70° dans le commerce)

Cleaning off the old adhesive is important to allow new one to be seated properly. Done it twice now. Heat and alcohol is the answer.
