  • Apply a heated iOpener to the lower glass panel on the back of the phone for five minutes.

    • You may need to reheat and reapply the iOpener several times to get the panel warm enough. Follow the iOpener instructions to avoid overheating.

    • A hair dryer, heat gun, or hot plate may also be used, but be careful not to overheat the phone—the display and internal battery are both susceptible to heat damage.

Insert an opening pick into the small gap between the rear case and the glass panel.
  • Insert an opening pick into the small gap between the rear case and the glass panel.

    • The gap is very small and the adhesive is very stubborn, so it may help to rock or slide the pick back and forth to work it into the gap. If you're having trouble inserting the pick, go back a step and heat the panel further.

    • Do not pry over the charging port. It is framed with plastic that can be damaged when prying.

  • With tip of the pick under the glass panel, carefully pry upward to slightly separate the rear case and the panel.

  • Repeat the previous four heating and removal steps for the upper glass panel.

  • During reassembly, remove leftover adhesive from the panels and the rear case. Then clean those areas with high concentration isopropyl alcohol (greater than 90%) and a lint-free cloth. This will ensure proper adhesion of the panels.

  • Reinstall the panels using a precut adhesive strip or a high-bond double-sided tape, such as Tesa 61395.

  • Repeat the separation and prying process for the other side of the phone.

  • There is one clip on each side of the phone—make sure both are free before you continue.

  • Be careful not to separate the bottom edge of the display more than 0.5 inches (13 mm) from the rear case. The display cable is still connected and can be damaged if the bottom of the phone is opened too far.
