An not easy but exciting trip for iPhone 5s teardown

I have to say that it is not an easy process, but a exciting trip. We need more carefulness and patience to face with some professional skills and experience.

Important tip: before the teardown, we first need to power off and eject the SIM card.

Firstly, Take down the front screen assembly.

The top priority is to eject the screws of charging port, then we will see 2 screws different from other iPhones, even 5c.

After this, we just use the suction cup to open the iPhone 5s lcd screen digitizer assembly with carefullness 100%. But we can’t make it with a beat, because there is the home button flex cable connecting the screen and tail plug. To avoid to cause accidental damage to the cable, we should be priority to keep the distance in 2-3cm while opening screen. After releasing the home lcd assembly cable, we can open the screen totally.

Thirdly, Tear down the mainboard

After we do screwing around in order.Then take the back camere out secondly, because there is one cable on mainbord under it. Finally take the mainboard out. However, we must deal with it slightly and carefully to avoid damaging the Wifi cable.

Fourthly, battery teardown   

During this process, we should use spudger to remove the battery without blind power, because there is glue between the battery and back cover, which is easy to bring dameges to the battery without exact power and actions.

In fact, the enhance antenna cable is combined to the charging flex cable, but it can be also as a standalone part as the vibrator. 5s teardown (39) 5s teardown (40)
