Upgraded Curved Edges Screen Protectors for iPhone 6

When my friend got the new screen protector for his new iPhone 6, she felt so disappointed. As we all know, the new generation iPhone not only features larger display screen but also the curved screen edges. As far as we can see, made by Dutch designer Martin Hajek, the new concept isn’t too different from some of his previous work, but the curved display really makes it stand out. So, here comes with the problem. It puts forward to more serious demands to the protective screen protectors for iPhone 6. Some screen protectors on the market only protect 3/4 of the screen, like the one of my friend. Apparently this kinds of protectors will not play their roles well in protecting the full touch screen of the smartphone. But now, HYTparts.com has introduced its new version Curved Edges Screen Protectors which can cover the full screen of iPhone 6. This version is upgraded based on their previous version, which features the protective curved edges design.The full covering design makes it attach onto iPhone 6 screen firmly but also the arc edges. With it, you will not need to worry about any scratches or abrasion damaged to the screen edges. Featuring 8-9H hardness, the protector can resist damages of sharp objects such as metals or knives. Besides, with an Oleophobic surface coating, it prevents fingerprints and other contaminants in daily use. Anyway, my friend has decided to get a new one of it. How about you?

Tools You May Need for iPhone 6 LCD Screen Repair

Shattered your iPhone 6 screen? Don’t worry, you can become a DIYer with these repair tools. Sure, we need to review the repair steps one by one when we give a brief introduction to these essential tools.

A Pentalobe Screwdriver is the must-have tool for the first disassembling step. Remove the Pentalobe screws at the bottom of iPhone 6 with it. Of course, before this step, you need to power off the mobile phone.

Then it comes to opening the front panel. This is one of the most difficult step for your repair. The inside flex cables may get damaged if you operate it carelessly. So, a practical but safe tool is required. Hytparts recommends a user-friendly repair tool for this step. It is an Suction Cup Clamp which can be used to separate front panel from rear case easily and securely.
It is designed to meet the ergonomic feature. It comes with double replaceable suction cups which can be used as pump to lift the LCD screen. The pliers are quite easy to use. You just need to close the handles on the clamp, opening the suction cup jaws; Place the bottom of your iPhone in between the suction cups (Please noted here: position the clamp’s upper suction cups against the display, near the home button). Then open the handles to close the jaws of the clamp. Center the suction cups and press them firmly onto the top and bottom of the iPhone.At last, hold onto your iPhone securely and close the handles of the clamp to separate the suction cups, pulling the front panel up from the rear case. If you do not need the professional repair tool, the light duty Suction Cup Opening Tool also works.

Now, you can see several clips along the top edge of the front panel form a partial hinge, allowing the front panel assembly to swing open like a book. Phillips Screwdriver for iPhone 6 is needed here to remove the five Phillips screws securing the front panel assembly cable bracket.

If you don’t use the iSclack tool, the suction cup opening tool can also open the screen assemly.

But you should be with carefullness 100%. 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.
