Follow this guide to remove the back cover for replacement, or to access the Galaxy S10+’s internals. This guide works with either the standard glass back, or the ceramic back.

  1. Unplug and power off your phone before you begin. Heat an iOpener and apply it to the back cover's right edge for two minutes. 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.

    • As you wait, take a look at the image of the removed back cover and take note of where the adhesive is located.

  2. Rest the heated right edge of the phone on something that is about  0.5 inches (13 mm) thick. This angles the phone for the opening tool. Brace the left edge of the phone with your fingers so that the phone won't slide. Pull on the suction cup with firm pressure. Press the edge of an opening tool into the seam between the back cover and the frame.

    • Press the edge of an opening tool into the seam between the back cover and the frame.

    • Slide the opening tool back and forth along the seam a few times.

  3. Heat an iOpener and apply it to the same edge of the phone for two minutes. Apply a suction cup to the back of the phone, as close to the center of the right edge as possible (where the adhesive is narrowest). Pull on the suction cup with strong, steady force to create a gap between the back cover and the frame.

    • Pull on the suction cup with strong, steady force to create a gap between the back cover and the frame.

    • Insert the point of an opening pick into the gap.

    • Due to tight tolerances, this may take multiple attempts.

    • If you are having trouble creating a gap, your best bet is to apply more heat to the edge and try the previous step again.

    • You can try applying a few drops of high concentration (over 90%) isopropyl alcohol into the seam to help loosen the adhesive.

    • Do not apply excessive force with the pick, or you will risk cracking the back cover glass.
