  1. iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Remove the pentalobe screws: passo 1, imagem 1 %32 iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Remove the pentalobe screws: passo 1, imagem 2 %32
    • Before you begin, discharge your iPhone battery below 25%. A charged lithium-ion battery can catch fire and/or explode if accidentally punctured.

    • Power off your iPhone before beginning disassembly.

    • Remove the two 6.7 mm-long pentalobe screws at the bottom edge of the iPhone.

    • Opening the iPhone will compromise its waterproof seals. Have replacement seals ready before you proceed past this step, or take care to avoid liquid exposure if you reassemble your iPhone without replacing the seals.

    • There's a black rubber gasket just beneath the head on each pentalobe screw. For maximum protection against dust and liquid, check the condition of the gaskets or replace the screws during reassembly.

  2. iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Mark your opening picks: passo 2, imagem 1 %32 iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Mark your opening picks: passo 2, imagem 2 %32 iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Mark your opening picks: passo 2, imagem 3 %32
    • If inserted too far, an opening pick can damage your device. Follow this step to mark your pick and prevent damage.

    • Measure 3 mm from the tip and mark the opening pick with a permanent marker.

    • You can also mark the other corners of the pick with different measurements.

    • Alternatively, tape a coin to a pick 3 mm from the tip.

    • If your iPhone has a cracked screen, keep further breakage contained and prevent bodily harm during your repair by taping over the glass.

    • Lay overlapping strips of clear packing tape over the iPhone's screen until the whole face is covered.

    • Wear safety glasses to protect your eyes from any glass shaken free during the repair.

    • If you can't get the suction cup to stick in the next few steps, fold a strong piece of tape (such as duct tape) into a handle and lift the screen with that instead.

    • If all else fails, you can superglue the suction cup to the screen.

    • The next three steps demonstrate the Anti-Clamp, a tool we designed to make the opening procedure easier. If you aren't using the Anti-Clamp, skip down three steps for an alternate method.

    • For complete instructions on how to use the Anti-Clamp, check out this guide.

    • Pull the blue handle backwards to unlock the Anti-Clamp's arms.

    • Slide the arms over either the left or right edge of your iPhone.

    • Position the suction cups near the bottom edge of the iPhone—one on the front, and one on the back.

    • Squeeze the cups together to apply suction to the desired area.

    • If you find that the surface of your iPhone is too slippery for the Anti-Clamp to hold onto, you can use tape to create a grippier surface.

    • Pull the blue handle forward to lock the arms.

    • Turn the handle clockwise 360 degrees or until the cups start to stretch.

    • Make sure the suction cups remain aligned with each other. If they begin to slip out of alignment, loosen the suction cups slightly and realign the arms.

    • Heat an iOpener and thread it through the arms of the Anti-Clamp.

    • You can also use a hair dryer, heat gun, or hot plate—but extreme heat can damage the display and/or internal battery, so proceed with care.

    • Fold the iOpener so it lays on the bottom edge of the iPhone.

    • Wait one minute to give the adhesive a chance to release and present an opening gap.

    • Insert an opening pick under the screen and the plastic bezel, not the screen itself.

    • If the Anti-Clamp doesn't create a sufficient gap, apply more heat to the area and rotate the handle a quarter turn.

    • Don't crank more than a quarter turn at a time, and wait one minute between turns. Let the Anti-Clamp and time do the work for you.

    • Skip the next three steps.

  7. iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Heat up the screen: passo 7, imagem 1 %32
    • Heating the lower edge of the iPhone helps soften the adhesive securing the display, making it easier to open.

    • Use a hairdryer or heat gun, or prepare an iOpener and apply it to the lower edge of the iPhone for about a minute in order to soften up the adhesive underneath.

    • If you're using a single suction handle, apply it to the bottom edge of the phone, while avoiding the curved portion of the glass.

  9. iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Lift the display slightly: passo 9, imagem 1 %32 iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Lift the display slightly: passo 9, imagem 2 %32 iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Lift the display slightly: passo 9, imagem 3 %32
    • Pull up on the suction cup with firm, constant pressure to create a slight gap between the front panel and rear case.

    • Insert an opening pick under the screen and the plastic bezel, not the screen itself.

    • The watertight adhesive holding the display in place is very strong; creating this initial gap takes a significant amount of force. If you're having a hard time opening a gap, apply more heat, and gently rock the screen up and down to weaken the adhesive until you create enough of a gap to insert your tool.

  10. iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Separate the screen adhesive: passo 10, imagem 1 %32 iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Separate the screen adhesive: passo 10, imagem 2 %32 iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Separate the screen adhesive: passo 10, imagem 3 %32
    • Slide the opening pick around the lower left corner and up the left edge of the iPhone, slicing through the adhesive holding the display in place.

    • Don't insert your pick more than 3 mm, as you may damage internal components.

  11. iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Screen information: passo 11, imagem 1 %32
    • There are delicate cables along the right edge of your iPhone. Don't insert your pick at the marked spots, as you may damage the cables.

    • Re-insert your pick at the bottom edge of the iPhone, and slide it up the right side to continue separating the adhesive.

    • Don't insert your pick more than 3 mm, as you may damage the display cables.

  13. iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement: passo 13, imagem 1 %32 iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement: passo 13, imagem 2 %32 iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement: passo 13, imagem 3 %32
    • The top edge of the display is secured with both glue and clips.

    • Slide the opening pick around the top corner of the display, while gently pulling or wiggling the display down in the direction of the Lightning port.

    • The clips will break if you use too much force. Work carefully and be patient.

    • Don't insert your pick more than 3 mm, as you may damage the front panel sensor array.

    • Slide the pick to the opposite corner and cut any remaining adhesive securing the display.

  14. iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement: passo 14, imagem 1 %32
    • Pull on the small nub on the suction cup to remove it from the front panel.

  15. iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Open the iPhone: passo 15, imagem 1 %32 iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Open the iPhone: passo 15, imagem 2 %32 iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Open the iPhone: passo 15, imagem 3 %32
    • Open the iPhone by swinging the display up from the left side, like the back cover of a book.

    • Don't try to fully separate the display yet, as several fragile ribbon cables still connect it to the iPhone's logic board.

    • Lean the display against something to keep it propped up while you're working on the phone.

    • During reassembly, lay the display in position, align the clips along the top edge, and carefully press the top edge into place before snapping the rest of the display down. If it doesn't click easily into place, check the condition of the clips around the perimeter of the display and make sure they aren't bent.

    • Remove three 1.2 mm Y000 screws securing the battery connector cover bracket.

    • Remove the bracket.

    • Throughout this repair, keep track of each screw and make sure it goes back exactly where it came from to avoid damaging your iPhone.

    • During reassembly, this is a good point to power on your iPhone and test all functions before you seal the display in place. Be sure to power your iPhone back down completely before you continue working.

  17. iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Disconnect the battery: passo 17, imagem 1 %32 iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Disconnect the battery: passo 17, imagem 2 %32
    • Use the point of a spudger to pry the battery connector straight up out of its socket.

    • Try not to damage the black silicone seal surrounding this and other board connections. These seals provide extra protection against water and dust intrusion.

    • Bend the connector slightly away from the logic board to prevent it from accidentally making contact with the socket and providing power to the phone during your repair.

  18. iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Unscrew the display connector cover: passo 18, imagem 1 %32 iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Unscrew the display connector cover: passo 18, imagem 2 %32

  21. iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Unscrew the logic board connector cover: passo 21, imagem 1 %32 iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Unscrew the logic board connector cover: passo 21, imagem 2 %32
    • Remove the five screws securing the logic board connector bracket to the rear case:

    • One 1.3 mm Phillips #000 screw

    • One 1.5 mm Phillips #000 screw

    • Three 1.2 mm Y000 screws

    • Remove the bracket.

    • Be careful not to lose the smaller bracket clipped onto the edge. It's secured with a small clip and is easy to accidentally knock off of the larger bracket.

  22. iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Disconnect the front sensors: passo 22, imagem 1 %32 iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Disconnect the front sensors: passo 22, imagem 2 %32

    • Using tweezers, gently flip the speaker assembly over—down and away from the top edge of the display.

    • The speaker remains attached via a very thin flex cable. Be careful not to strain or damage the cable.

  26. iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Heat the front sensor strip: passo 26, imagem 1 %32
    • Use a hairdryer, a heat gun, or a heated iOpener applied to the top front of the display for about a minute, in order to soften the adhesive securing the sensors.

  27. iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Pry up the microphone: passo 27, imagem 1 %32 iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Pry up the microphone: passo 27, imagem 2 %32 iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Pry up the microphone: passo 27, imagem 3 %32
    • Carefully slide the flat edge of a spudger underneath the flex cable below the microphone.

    • Twist gently to separate the microphone, while being careful not to strain or damage the flex cable.

    • If needed, use the point of the spudger to finish separating the microphone from its notch in the front panel. If the microphone remains difficult to separate, apply more heat.

  28. iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Pry up the proximity sensor: passo 28, imagem 1 %32 iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Pry up the proximity sensor: passo 28, imagem 2 %32 iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Pry up the proximity sensor: passo 28, imagem 3 %32
    • Working left to right, slide an opening pick beneath the flex cable and underneath the proximity sensor + flood illuminator module.

    • Gently wiggle and lift to separate the module from its notch in the front panel.

    • It's helpful to lift and hold the speaker out of the way for access. Just be careful not to pull on the thin flex cable while you work.

  29. iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Remove the ambient light sensor bracket: passo 29, imagem 1 %32 iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Remove the ambient light sensor bracket: passo 29, imagem 2 %32

  30. iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Lift the ambient light sensor: passo 30, imagem 1 %32 iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Lift the ambient light sensor: passo 30, imagem 2 %32
    • Use tweezers to wiggle the ambient light sensor and lift it from its notch in the display.

    • If the sensor does not wiggle free after a few seconds, apply more heat and try again.

    • The sensor remains attached to the rest of the sensor assembly via a very thin flex cable. Be careful not to strain or damage the cable.

  31. iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement: passo 31, imagem 1 %32 iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement: passo 31, imagem 2 %32 iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement: passo 31, imagem 3 %32
    • If you successfully removed the entire ambient light sensor, as shown in the first photo, continue to the next step below.

    • If the white diffuser strip is detached and remains embedded in the display, as shown in the second photo, you will need to carefully lever it out along the top edge using a thin blade or pry tool. Re-applying heat first may make this task a bit easier.

    • During reassembly, install the diffuser into the display first, making sure it faces the right direction (the front-facing side is shown in the first image, and the rear-facing side is shown in the third).

    • Then, set the ambient light sensor on top of the diffuser. You will need to hold the sensor in position while installing the screws securing the earpiece/sensor assembly. Once the screws are tightened, the sensor will stay in place and work normally.

  32. iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Remove the speaker + front sensors: passo 32, imagem 1 %32 iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Remove the speaker + front sensors: passo 32, imagem 2 %32 iPhone XR Earpiece and Front Sensor Assembly Replacement, Remove the speaker + front sensors: passo 32, imagem 3 %32
    • Remove the earpiece speaker and front sensor assembly.

    • During reassembly, check the position of the black plastic module containing these components:

    • Proximity sensor

    • Flood illuminator

    • The module must be positioned so that these components are not obstructed by any adhesive.

Conclusão

Compare your new replacement part to the original part—you may need to transfer remaining components or remove adhesive backings from the new part before installing.

To reassemble your device, follow the above steps in reverse order.

Take your e-waste to an R2 or e-Stewards certified recycler.
