If your iPhone 11 Pro Max screen is cracked, not responding to touch, or not showing a picture when your phone is powered on, use this guide to restore your iPhone to working order with a new screen, a.k.a. display assembly.

The combined earpiece speaker + sensor assembly affixed to the back of the display is paired to your individual iPhone from the factory, so you must transfer it from your old display to your new one during any display replacement. It contains the flood illuminator, which is part of the biometric Face ID security feature. If it is damaged or replaced, Face ID will cease to function, so take extra care not to damage any of these components during this procedure. If damaged, only Apple or an Apple-authorized technician can restore Face ID function.

Note: True Tone functionality is disabled after a screen replacement, even when using an original Apple screen. Additionally, your iPhone may temporarily show a warning about the “genuineness” of the display.

    • 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 6.7 mm-long pentalobe screws at the bottom edge of the iPhone.

    • Opening the iPhone's display will compromise its waterproof seals. Have replacement seals ready before you proceed past this step, or take care to avoid liquid exposure if you reassemble your iPhone without replacing the seals.

    • If your iPhone has a cracked screen, keep further breakage contained and prevent bodily harm during your repair by taping over the glass.

    • Lay overlapping strips of packing tape over the iPhone's display until the whole face is covered.

    • This will keep glass shards contained and provide structural integrity when prying and lifting the display.

    • Wear safety glasses to protect your eyes from any glass shaken free during the repair.

    • If the broken glass makes it difficult to get a suction cup to stick in the next few steps, try folding a strong piece of tape (such as duct tape) into a handle and lifting the display with that instead.

    How to detect my Iphone what screen it is, OLED or LCD?

    It’s OLED. You can find the specs here, https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201296

    When you find your phone, at the bottom of the description click on, See the tech specs…

    The included suction cups were stiff and worthless. They would not lift the screen. Also, I tried every type of tape on the screen to help the suction cups stick without success. Heavy duty suction cups were for my bathroom also failed. However, I had an old GoPro mount with some preapplied double sided 3M VSB tape and stuck that on the screen near the bottom. Magic! This method had the added bonus of being able to use a GoPro attachment as a handle to lift the screen, and propped up the screen like a kickstand in step 12.

    Very cool! Thanks

    My screen was pretty stuck… would not budge. Heated, super glued the suction cup, tried gorilla tape. Ended up doing the GoPro mount with 3M VSB tape method mentioned. Worked great. That 3M tape is the bomb.

    Rich Wachtel - Ответить

    The included suction cup took a few tries but ended up working for me.

    If you have flat feeler gauges (for adjusting engine valve tappet clearance, ignition points … old school) the .003 thick goes right in. Work your way up until you can get the pick or supplied pry tool in.

    William Olstad - Ответить

    3M VHB tape is at auto stores and other big box stores, or online.

    I used the tweezers that came with the replacement screen and jammed one of them into the glass and that eventually worked. Heating with a blow dryer is also important. The suction cup was helpful in loosening the adhesive for sure, but just not enough to get the display to come out.

  3. iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Heat the lower edge of the phone: step 3, image 1 of 1
    • Heating the lower edge of the iPhone helps soften the adhesive securing the display, making it easier to open.

    • Use a hairdryer or heat gun or prepare an iOpener and apply it to the lower edge of the iPhone for about a minute in order to soften up the adhesive underneath.

  4. iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Apply suction cup(s): step 4, image 1 of 2 iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Apply suction cup(s): step 4, image 2 of 2
    • The next two steps demonstrate the iSclack, a handy tool that we recommend for anyone doing frequent repairs. If you aren't using the iSclack, skip down two steps for an alternate method.

    • If the plastic depth gauge is attached at the center of the iSclack, remove it now—it's not needed for larger iPhones like the iPhone 11 Pro Max.

    • Position the suction cups near the bottom edge of the iPhone—one on the front, and one on the back.

    • Press both suction cups firmly into place.

    • If your display or back glass is badly cracked, covering it with a layer of clear packing tape may help the suction cups adhere. The iSclack also includes two pieces of tape for this purpose.

  5. iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement: step 5, image 1 of 3 iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement: step 5, image 2 of 3 iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement: step 5, image 3 of 3
    • Hold onto your iPhone securely and close the handle of the iSclack to slightly separate the screen from the rear case of the phone.

    • Don't try to completely separate the screen; a small opening along the bottom edge is all you need.

    • Insert an opening pick into the gap under the display on the lower edge of the iPhone.

    • Skip the next two steps.

  6. iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement: step 6, image 1 of 2 iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement: step 6, image 2 of 2
    • If you're using a single suction handle, apply it to the bottom edge of the phone, while avoiding the curved portion of the glass.

    • If your display is badly cracked, covering it with a layer of clear packing tape may allow the suction cup to adhere. Alternatively, very strong tape may be used instead of the suction cup. If all else fails, you can superglue the suction cup to the broken screen.

  7. iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Lift the display slightly: step 7, image 1 of 3 iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Lift the display slightly: step 7, image 2 of 3 iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Lift the display slightly: step 7, image 3 of 3
    • Pull up on the suction cup with firm, constant pressure to create a slight gap between the front panel and rear case.

    • Insert an opening pick into the gap.

    • The watertight adhesive holding the display in place is very strong; creating this initial gap takes a significant amount of force. If you're having a hard time opening a gap, apply more heat, and gently rock the screen up and down to weaken the adhesive until you create enough of a gap to insert your tool.

  8. iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Separate the screen adhesive: step 8, image 1 of 3 iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Separate the screen adhesive: step 8, image 2 of 3 iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Separate the screen adhesive: step 8, image 3 of 3
    • Slide the opening pick around the lower left corner and up the left edge of the iPhone, slicing through the adhesive holding the display in place.

    • Don't insert the opening pick too far into the iPhone, or you may cause damage to internal components.

  9. iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement: step 9, image 1 of 3 iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement: step 9, image 2 of 3 iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement: step 9, image 3 of 3
    • Re-insert your pick at the bottom edge of the iPhone, and slide it up the right side to continue separating the adhesive.

    • Don't insert the pick very far, or you may damage the display cables along this side of the iPhone. Insert it only a few millimeters, or about the width of the display bezel.

  10. iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement: step 10, image 1 of 3 iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement: step 10, image 2 of 3 iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement: step 10, image 3 of 3
    • The top edge of the display is secured with both glue and clips.

    • Gently pull the right edge of the display down slightly (in the direction of the Lightning port).

    • Insert your pick into the top-right corner of the phone.

  11. iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement: step 11, image 1 of 2 iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement: step 11, image 2 of 2
    • Continue pulling the display down (toward the Lightning port) as needed in order to make a gap large enough for the pick.

    • Slide the pick to the top left corner and cut any remaining adhesive securing the display.

    • Again, don't insert the pick more than a few millimeters—about the width of the display bezel—or you may damage the front panel sensor array.

  12. iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Remove the suction cup(s): step 12, image 1 of 1
    • Pull on the small nub on the suction cup to remove it from the front panel.

    • If you used an iSclack and it's still affixed to the iPhone, remove it now.

  13. iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Open the iPhone: step 13, image 1 of 3 iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Open the iPhone: step 13, image 2 of 3 iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Open the iPhone: step 13, image 3 of 3
    • Open the iPhone by swinging the display up from the left side, like the back cover of a book.

    • Don't try to fully separate the display yet, as several fragile ribbon cables still connect it to the iPhone's logic board.

    • Lean the display against something to keep it propped up while you're working on the phone.

    • During reassembly, lay the display in position, align the clips along the top edge, and carefully press the top edge into place before snapping the rest of the display down. If it doesn't click easily into place, check the condition of the clips around the perimeter of the display and make sure they aren't bent.

    • Remove two 1.3 mm long Y000 screws securing the battery cover bracket.

    • Throughout this repair, keep track of each screw and make sure it goes back exactly where it came from to avoid damaging your iPhone.

    • During reassembly, this is a good point to power on your iPhone and test all functions before you seal the display in place. Be sure to power your iPhone back down completely before you continue working.

    My Y000 didn’t work on my screws. Does anyone know why?!

    • Remove the bracket.

  15. iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Disconnect the battery: step 16, image 1 of 2 iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Disconnect the battery: step 16, image 2 of 2
    • Use a spudger or a clean fingernail to pry the battery connector up from its socket on the logic board.

    • Try not to damage the black silicone seal surrounding this and other board connections. These seals provide extra protection against water and dust intrusion.

    • Bend the connector slightly away from the logic board to prevent it from accidentally making contact with the socket and providing power to the phone during your repair.

    The second connection from the battery to the daughterboard should also be disconnected even just as an extra precaution.

    • Remove the bracket.

  18. iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Disconnect the OLED display cable: step 19, image 1 of 2 iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Disconnect the OLED display cable: step 19, image 2 of 2
    • Use a spudger or a fingernail to disconnect the OLED panel cable connector.

    • To re-attach press connectors like this one, carefully align and press down on one side until it clicks into place, then repeat on the other side. Do not press down on the middle. If the connector is misaligned, the pins can bend, causing permanent damage.

  19. iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Disconnect the front sensors + digitizer: step 20, image 1 of 3 iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Disconnect the front sensors + digitizer: step 20, image 2 of 3 iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Disconnect the front sensors + digitizer: step 20, image 3 of 3
    • Use a spudger or a fingernail to disconnect the front sensor assembly cable connector.

    • Use a spudger or a fingernail to disconnect the digitizer cable connector.

    • If any part of your screen doesn't respond to touch after your repair, disconnect the battery and then re-seat this connector, making sure it clicks fully into place and that there's no dust or other obstruction in the socket.

  20. iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Remove the display assembly: step 21, image 1 of 1
  21. iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Unscrew the front assembly: step 22, image 1 of 2 iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Unscrew the front assembly: step 22, image 2 of 2
    • Remove the three screws securing the speaker/sensor assembly to the back of the display:

    • Two 1.6 mm Phillips screws

    • One 1.4 mm Y000 screw

  22. iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Flip the speaker assembly over: step 23, image 1 of 3 iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Flip the speaker assembly over: step 23, image 2 of 3 iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Flip the speaker assembly over: step 23, image 3 of 3
    • The earpiece speaker is lightly adhered in place.

    • Use the point of a spudger to gently pry up the top edge of the speaker.

    • Flip the speaker assembly over—down and away from the top edge of the display.

    • The speaker remains attached via a very thin ribbon cable. Be careful not to strain or damage the cable.

  23. iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Heat up the top edge of the display: step 24, image 1 of 1
    • Use a hairdryer or heat gun or prepare an iOpener and apply it to the top front of the display for 1-2 minutes, in order to soften the adhesive securing the sensors.

  24. iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Pry up the microphone: step 25, image 1 of 3 iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Pry up the microphone: step 25, image 2 of 3 iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Pry up the microphone: step 25, image 3 of 3
    • Use the point of a spudger to lift and separate the microphone from its notch in the front panel.

  25. iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Separate the ambient light sensor: step 26, image 1 of 2 iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Separate the ambient light sensor: step 26, image 2 of 2
    • Use tweezers to wiggle the ambient light sensor and lift it from its notch in the display.

    • If the sensor does not wiggle free after a few seconds, apply more heat and try again.

    • The sensor remains attached to the rest of the sensor assembly via a very thin flex cable. Be careful not to strain or damage the cable.

  26. iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement: step 27, image 1 of 3 iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement: step 27, image 2 of 3 iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Replacement: step 27, image 3 of 3
    • If you successfully removed the entire ambient light sensor, as shown in the first photo, continue to the next step below.

    • If the white diffuser strip detached and remains embedded in the display, as shown in the second photo, you will need to carefully lever it out along the top edge using a thin blade or pry tool. Re-applying heat first may make this task a bit easier.

    • During reassembly, install the diffuser into the display first, making sure it faces the right direction (the front-facing side is shown in the first image, and the rear-facing side is shown in the third).

    • Then, set the ambient light sensor on top of the diffuser. You will need to hold the sensor in position while installing the screws securing the earpiece/sensor assembly. Once the screws are tightened, the sensor will stay in place and work normally.

    • Working left to right, slide an opening pick beneath the flex cable and underneath the proximity sensor + flood illuminator module.

    • Gently wiggle and lift to separate the module from its notch in the front panel.

    • It's helpful to lift and hold the speaker out of the way for access. Just be careful not to pull on the thin flex cable while you work.

    • Remove the earpiece speaker and front sensor assembly.

    • During reassembly, check the position of the black plastic module containing these components:

    • Proximity sensor

    • Flood illuminator

    • The module must be positioned so that these components are not obstructed by any adhesive.

There is no programmer yet for the 11 Pro as far as I can see, the YT clip is about older models. Anyone have a solution?

Fixandinstall - Ответить

So far the newest iPhone I have repaired is an iPhone 7 - should I give the 11 pro a go?

I just finished this repair and this guide was very easy and clear to follow. I had no issues with the parts from ifixit and my phone is back to fully operational. I just wish that OLED screen wasn’t so much money, but oh well…

Is it not necessary to disconnect the battery from that little “daughter-board” like component where the vibrator, and loudspeaker connect to as well? I have always done this but I am curious if anyone knows if there is actually any risk.

Keegen Payne - Ответить

shorting is still an issue I believe

Kaplan Akıncılar -

@keegenpayne

I disconnect both connectors every time because the current is also going into the daughter-board.

So I recommend you to disconnect both connectors.

Good to hear, That is what I do as well

I wish I had realised before I started/made the purchase that I should have rented the device to program the new screen. My wife isn’t loving the color not being as it was. I may have to find the device, and another new glue gasket and redo. I’d love to know is this is available other than as part of the full set, I had to other part & tools as the part only was unavailable…I returned the old screen and the tools…hopefully I’ll get at least my $10 back.

James Bowkett - Ответить

James, try going into Settings > Accessibility > Display & Text Size > Color Filters.. and you may be able to tweak the outputs to get it a bit better. I ended up cheaping out on a non-Apple display for my phone (SE First Gen) and fiddled with the 'honeycomb' filter and tweaked the intensity and hue and it's not that bad.
