The iOpener is an insulated, heat-retaining bag that can be heated in a microwave and used to transfer heat to the adhesive along the edge of an iPad or similar device.

Follow these basic instructions to get started with your new (black, liquid-filled) iOpener. For the white, solid-filled iOpener, follow this guide instead.

For detailed instructions specific to your device and repair, see our set of iPad repair guides.

    • Place the iOpener in the center of the microwave.

    • For carousel microwaves: Make sure the plate spins freely. If your iOpener gets stuck, it may overheat and burn.

  2. Heat the iOpener for thirty seconds.
    • Heat the iOpener for thirty seconds.

    • Throughout the repair procedure, as the iOpener cools, reheat it in the microwave for an additional thirty seconds at a time.

    • Be careful not to overheat the iOpener during the repair. Overheating may cause the iOpener to burst.

    • Never touch the iOpener if it appears swollen.

    • If the iOpener is still too hot in the middle to touch, continue using it while waiting for it to cool down some more before reheating. A properly heated iOpener should stay warm for up to 10 minutes.

  4. Remove the iOpener from the microwave, holding it by one of the two flat ends to avoid the hot center.
    • Remove the iOpener from the microwave, holding it by one of the two flat ends to avoid the hot center.

    • The iOpener will be very hot, so be careful when handling it. Use an oven mitt if necessary.

  5. Lay the iOpener clear-side down, flat on the edge of the device, over an adhesive seal you wish to heat. The liquid will flatten the iOpener against the surface, ensuring good heat conduction. Let the bag sit on the device for approximately 90 seconds before attempting to open the front panel. At this point you should be able to begin prying under the screen with a plastic opening tool. Be sure to see your device's specific guide for where and how to do this.

I bought two of these, and I can't get an iPad 2 to open using the iOpener; I'm going to keep trying, but heads up, it's not as easy as 1-2-3. I'll update if I get it to work.

I used a flat toaster maker and turned it off and on as required, Fixed my Ipad mini ok.

Step 2 says to wait 5 minutes between reheating, step 4 says to wait 3 minutes.

Also, do you sell the "this is a microwave" stickers? xD

Will this tool damage the lcd/ pixels or even the camera/sensor if placed on the edge above those? I need to soften up the adhesive only, not replacing the screen at all. I have a surface pro 4.

A short remark about how much force will then be needed to separate the old battery from the heated adhesive would be helpful. I found that even after I was able to begin the insertion of a plastic card between the battery and the case, it required a great deal of force to push the card further under the battery to complete the separation.
