Use this guide to replace the metallic outer power button on your iPhone.

  1. Before you begin, discharge your iPhone battery below 25%. A charged lithium-ion battery can catch fire and/or explode if accidentally punctured.
    • 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 3.6 mm Pentalobe P2 screws next to the dock connector.

    • Be sure the driver is well-seated when removing Pentalobe screws—they are easy to strip.

  2. Push the rear panel toward the top edge of the iPhone. The panel will move about 2 mm.
    • Push the rear panel toward the top edge of the iPhone.

    • The panel will move about 2 mm.

    • Carefully push the pressure contact away from the battery connector until it slides free from its position.

    • Remove the pressure contact.

  6. Use a plastic opening tool to gently pry up the battery connector from its socket on the logic board. Place the tip of the tool between the loudspeaker enclosure and the metal cover of the connector, and lift the bottom edge of the connector first. The battery connector comes off vertically from the logic board. Do not apply force sideways.

    • Place the tip of the tool between the loudspeaker enclosure and the metal cover of the connector, and lift the bottom edge of the connector first.

    • The battery connector comes off vertically from the logic board. Do not apply force sideways.

    • Be careful not to pry at the battery connector socket itself, or it may detach from the logic board. There are four very small solder points awaiting this mistake!

  7. Before you reattach the battery connector during reinstallation, carefully position the pressure contact back in place. It should rest on top of the Philips screw post shown, and the gold contact should point towards the battery connector. Be sure to clean the pressure contact with a degreaser such as windex or isopropyl alcohol. The oils on your fingers have the potential to create wireless interference.

  9. Use the exposed clear plastic pull tab to peel the battery off the adhesive securing it to the iPhone. Be careful not to pull the plastic pull tab too hard as it can be ripped off very easily.
    • Use the exposed clear plastic pull tab to peel the battery off the adhesive securing it to the iPhone.

    • Be careful not to pull the plastic pull tab too hard as it can be ripped off very easily.

    • Remove the battery.

    • If your replacement battery came in a plastic sleeve, remove it before installation by pulling it away from the ribbon cable.

    • If your replacement battery came with an uncreased cable, carefully crease the cable into the proper shape before installing the battery into the phone.

    • While installing the replacement battery, temporarily connect the battery connector to the phone to ensure proper alignment. Once the battery is glued in place, disconnect the battery connector.

    • Perform a hard reset after reassembly. This can prevent several issues and simplify troubleshooting.

This guide is marked as difficult. You are doing it at your own risk. Backup your device and make sure you have everything you need before attempting it. Otherwise, good luck and hope you succeed.

I DID IT!!! But low and behold...It's the actual cable that is bad :S...on a lighter note, I have a shiny new button. Good guide

Javier Lopez - 답글

I'll be honest - i can see this is marked as difficult but after reviewing the steps and doing a few successful front screen repairs first hand this doesn't seem so bad? Am i missing something?

Also, funny i notice this now but is is really necessary to 'clean' each and every metal spot with isopropyl? I did NOT do this is previous repairs and had no problem, did i just get lucky?
