Use this guide to remove or replace a faulty logic board in your iPhone 7.

It's important to note that each iPhone's logic board and Touch ID fingerprint sensor are paired at the factory, so replacing the logic board will disable Touch ID unless you also install a replacement home button that has been properly paired to your new logic board.

Video Overview

  1. Before you begin, discharge your iPhone battery below 25%. A charged lithium-ion battery can catch fire and/or explode if accidentally punctured.
    • 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 3.4 mm pentalobe screws on 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.

    Can anyone confirm 7/7P's pentalobe screws have a ring of seal near the screw head?

    Cooper Chase - Ответить

    Confirmed, the screws have a black ring seal around the head.

  2. Heating the lower edge of the iPhone will help soften the adhesive securing the display, making it easier to open.
    • Heating the lower edge of the iPhone will help soften the adhesive securing the display, making it easier to open.

    • Use a hairdryer 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.

    It is a process. I heated the lower area of the phone with a hair dryer on and off (1min each) about 3-4 times before I was able to get the provided tool in.

    Dan - Ответить

    I suggest using a hairdryer. I used the iOpener for maybe 30 mins to no avail. However, when I used the hairdryer the screen came of much quicker.

    Michael - Ответить

    I totally Mr. Myagi’ed it, by rubbing my hands together until they burned, then held the phone un my hot hands. I did this 5-6 times over a couple of minutes. It was a good zen way to get started!

    Can a heat gun be used?

    Lee - Ответить

    Absolutely. Just don’t overdo it—the adhesive usually softens up pretty easily. If you are experienced with a heat gun, you’ll have no problem. (If you are inexperienced, it’s easy to cook the display or cause other damage.)

  3. Attach a suction cup to the lower half of the display assembly, just above the home button. Be sure the suction cup does not overlap with the home button, as this will prevent a seal from forming between the suction cup and front glass.

    The glass is completely cracked and the suction cup doesn't work because it gets air in between. any tip?

    Using packing tape for a cracked screen should be included in the description in Step 3.

    Cracked screen is most probably the reason you are replacing it.

  4. Pull up on the suction cup to create a small gap between the display assembly and the rear case. Insert the flat end of a spudger into the gap. The watertight adhesive holding the display in place is very strong, and creating this initial gap takes a significant amount of force. If you're having a hard time opening a gap, rock the screen up and down to weaken the adhesive until you can fit a spudger inside.

    This was SO hard for me to do with the spudger. I couldn’t get a gap to insert it because my phone was so cracked (even though I used tape on the front) to get a solid seal with the suction cup. I ended up taking a VERY thin knife and inserting it straight down to make the initial break that allowed me to insert the spudger.

    jessica harlow - Ответить

    I’ve given up using a plastic spudger to try to open any of these phones. I use a metal one with a flat base and a very sharp end…close to a razor. As long as I’m careful, it won’t slip and scratch the base. It’s much easier than using these plastic spudgers.

    mcr4u2 -

    I confirm that the plastic spudger it’s not the best tool for this operation. I suggest to use a larger metal tool like a “Jimmy” or “iSesamo open tool” (I used the first one)

    Cristef -

    Im trying to get the screen off right now and my phone is not cracked and its still a pain

    Jordon Johnson - Ответить

    Using a blow dryer was extremely helpful and using the suction cup towards one of the lower edges was also helpful

    Jordon Johnson - Ответить

    This is not working for me. How long does the heat need to be applied? Still trying right now…. =/

    Chris Gallego - Ответить

    Apply hair dryer for at least 1 minute. I inserted the tip end of a thin mini screwdriver and with some force, pryed it open and inserted my plastic spudger to continue the separation process. It worked, just be patient.

    Please wear protective glasses! My iPhone glass was severely cracked, when separating the glass a corner area of broken glass exploded in my face. Apply transparent tape over the broken glass to contain the shards.

    I second Jessica’s January 8 comment.  I just finished a battery replacement on my iPhone 7 and this step was the most nerve-wracking part.  I ended up using a sharper (but not razor-sharp) metal object to get this done with confidence (tried the spudger and guitar pick but not thin enough).  The tool I used was the exact duplicate of what iFixIt calls “iSesamo Opening Tool” in their tool selection.  I did the heat up with a hair dryer (after attempts with an iOpener hot pad) and the secret (as Jessica also noted)  was to not use the angle of attack shown in the pictures, but to push it in more vertically along the bottom edge while pulling up on the suction cup.  From there you can easily lever the tool to the lower angle-of-attack (as shown in the picture).  I actually used the metal tool for most of the perimeter as well, just don’t go deep (you don’t need to).  Notes: my display was intact, and I was able to pull up fairly hard with a glass screen protector still on it.

    Ted - Ответить

    This is frustrating. I heated the lower edge with a hair dryer for 1 min on high about 3-4 times. In between each heat cycle, I rocked the suction cup back and forth. I was eventually able to create significant space for the provided tool. This takes a lot of patience. Once the space was created, it was very easy to remove the screen.

    Dan - Ответить

    use a fingernail, then the blue tool, then the spudger

    Therese Peffer - Ответить

    The iOpener worked just fine for me. Had to keep it on for a few minutes. I also was able to get the suction cup seal right close to the edge, over top of the home button for added leverage. Used the blue tool and transitioned to the spudger. Slow, steady pressure…and patience. ;)

    johnhall918 - Ответить

    Unable to open an iPhone 7 display assembly. Used gell pack at 150 degrees F. The phone wouldn’t budge when I used the iFixit suction cut. Part of the problem is that the cup doesn’t adhere for long before it looses suction. I suspect it would work better on unbroken glass, but that doesn’t help me now. After spending a lot of time at this, I changed heating methods to a hot air heater. I raised the temp of the bottom end of the phone to, ultimately, 175 degrees, and used a variety of tools to try to pry the glass apart enough to get a spudger (or anything) in, but it didn’t even lift enough for a double-edged razor blade to get in. I’ve been trying this for hours now, and about to give up and throw a lot more money at this to have a service perform the work. I figured that 175 was as high as I should need to go to soften the adhesive without damaging the electronics. Should I have gone higher? I see no mention of measured temps in any instructions or comments.

    ted - Ответить

    Have you tried applying tape to the broken screen? This will help a lot with keeping the suction cup on it.

    Christian Groothuis -

    It doesn’t need to get very hot; pulling up on the display is mainly what does the trick. Make sure the two pentalobe screws have been removed and then try the tricks in this step. If all else fails, superglue the suction cup to your display and let it cure, and then pull. Keep in mind you only need a tiny gap to insert a plastic pick and start cutting the adhesive. Good luck!

    Jeff Suovanen -

    Just a question. After this operation the impermeability function was compromitted?

    bentek86 - Ответить

    The trick I found, was to add packing tape right across the bottom over the home button then use hairdryer on the end, then suction cup on the very bottom and it lifted enough to get a gap. No one mentioned how it would be impossible to handle the phone after the hairdryer ;)

    It’s the screwdriver bit that is the problem. I had the same issue with 2 Y000 bits not grabbing the screw properly. I fixed it by using a small 3 sided file to slightly grind the groves in the Y000 bit just a bit deeper. Then the bit worked like a charm on these screws.

    Jim Staples - Ответить

    Use Y000 on all 4. U have to be very sensitive on the 1.2mm screws. Put the bit in the screw, put the left pointing finger on top of the screwdriver and turn the driver carefully to the right until you feel a “bump”, thats the trick :-), then you are able to screw the screw out.

    Magne Eivindson - Ответить

    For me the key here was a LOT of downward pressure to ensure the Y000 bit caught in the screw. Not sure i can describe how much exactly, but is was significant. Otherwise the bit would not catch.

    You need to be careful when just rotating the cover as you can accidentally slice through the two black antennas! You only need to nip them…As you can tell I have done this in the past :/

    The first, longer screw came out fine, but the other three wouldn’t budge, regardless of more/less pressure or a slight angle or anything. I finally filed down the tip of the Y000 bit ever so slightly, and then it worked. Hope this helps someone.

    Using iFixit’s driver kit, I prefer a PH00 for this, which is larger than the PH000. If you think the PH000 is too big, something is wrong.

    Jeff Suovanen -

    I think part of the issue with the iFixit PH000 is that it is slightly too pointy. The PH00 fits better because the splines engage the slots of the screw before the point bottoms out. The PH000 tip bottoms out in the screw’s center point and the splines don’t engage as well. I have other PH000 tips that are more blunt nose and they work better than the iFixit bit.

    @victorbui714 Correct, this is also the connector for the earpiece speaker. Check the flex cable carefully and make sure it wasn’t pinched or torn. Make sure the connector socket is clean (give it a blast with some compressed air if needed) and try reseating it. If that doesn’t help, you may want to remove the earpiece speaker and inspect the four springs on the back, and check that they’re intact and making good contact with the four circular pads on the flex cable. Give the pads a wipe with some IPA and try not to leave any skin oils on them. If none of that works, try replacing the entire flex cable/sensor assembly. Good luck!

When I was ready to reassemble, I opened the repair part box and guess what was in there - the standoff screwdriver bit and guitar pick. So, I guess if you just order the part it will come with (at least) those two tools. The tool kit contains tweezers, suction cup, three screwdriver bits (tri-point, pentalobe, and phillips) and screwdriver handle, a long black spudger with a flat end and a pointy end, and a smaller, thicker spudger with a wide, flat ends.

    The flat end of the spudger works a treat too.

I had an accident where my iphone has got some damage (cracked screen, metal frame slightly bent).. I can see a lot of iCloud locked devices for sale, some of them for a cheap price. Would replacing the logic board and home button give me a non-damaged working phone? Or what parts would need to be moved for this? Sure I can buy a brand new phone but I like a bit of a challenge :)

Steve - Ответить

the logic board holds the OS, so yes if you were to replace the mother board of the iPhone it should work like a new phone but without touch id

I have the same idea and i found to buy this one

You think it will work?

I was trying to replace my screen and while removing the tri-screws it slipped and and scratched the logic board. the black cover is now ripped. will this be okay or is it now damaged and unable to work?

Sara Lee - Ответить

Check to see if there are any metal parts UNDER the black cover that are damaged. If not, you should be ok.

Hi everyone,

i have a problem with my iPhone 7, it’s constantly on bootloop status, I’ve tried to recover with iTunes but it still doesn’t work.

I think the problem can be the motherboard, is it possible? ‘Cause I’m not sure.

I don’t want to buy a new logic board if I’m not sure that’s actually the problem.

Gabriele - Ответить

I’ve been having that problem with my friend’s iPhone after he got the screen replaced by someone else and now it’s in a bootloop. It didn’t have anything important on it so I restored it after updating over iTunes. It got to the setup screen but after setting up, the phone was horribly laggy and eventually rebooted automatically and went back into the loop. I later read that this is from screwing in the 4 screws holding down the battery connector cover bad and messing up where the longer screw went. I found this to be the case when I unscrewed the screws. Unfortunately the bootloop still stayed even with the screws removed so it looks like my friend is gonna need a new board.

This happened to me. I called Apple tech support. After failing to fix it over the phone, they sent me into an Apple Store for testing. It failed the testing, so they said there was a problem with some of the logic boards in my model of iPhone 7. They then sent my phone in for a free logic board replacement and gave me a loner phone in the meantime. I’ve had my phone for over a year and do not have Apple Care, but they still fixed it a no charge.

Hi,

I’ve got a problem with my iphone7. I just took some videos under the water using my iphone. But later it’s finger id has gone and it’s fully damaged. Now the phone is not working. Is there any option to repair this ….?

muhammed faisal - Ответить

Hi Muhammed, sounds like some water got inside your phone. Check out our iPhone liquid damage guide for some basic troubleshooting you can do on your own. When you have the phone open check connectors and pins on the board for any corrosion. If the damage is serious enough that cleaning won’t fix it, you can take your phone to a local repair shop for more extensive repairs.

my iphone 7 got into liquid damage and i stored it in rice box for five days and then start it, but it stuck on boot loop. so then i restore it using itunes then it works fine but after sometime (5 min) , it rebooted and stuck in boot loop (white apple logo). and now it does not boot up .

Hi, I needed to remove the black adhesive film, which is on the logic board because of a problem with the SIM-Card. Now the adhesive film no longer sticks well to the logic board. Is it a problem? I think the backside of the display construction is pushing it down anyway. If this is not enough, which glue could I use in this case? Thank you so much

Step 23: This is not a camera flash flex connecter. It is a kind of antenna.

The camera flash is tied together with the power, volume, silent flex incl. the microphone for the main camera ;)

Hi Evan and Team!

I made some pictures on my iPhone 7 Plus underwater, 30 cm deep but water got inside and damaged my WiFi so it stopped working. I saw couple of videos on Youtube about replacement of WiFi module and understood the solution could be temporary cause it module will not be welded to the board and my stop working again. I am thinking to change whole logic board. I have my phone backed up with iTunes.

The question will I be able to restore iPhone with new logic board from backup?

Thank you!

P.S. do I need special adhesive when changing home button?

Hi. I want to buy a new logic board for iPhone 7 plus without touch id. I already have the home button with my screen attached. My question is if that home button works? I don’t need touch id i just want that the home button physically works. Does it work.

Faizan TAhir - Ответить

Nope, sorry—a non-paired button won’t work at all last time I checked. It worked until the 6s, but iPhone 7 and later have a solid-state “button” that gets disabled completely.

Worked great transferring the logic board from a device with a banged up body to a donor phone with a body in perfect condition.

I’m having an issue with my iphone 7 “no service/cellular update failed” everything was ok, and there’s an assumptions that IC Radio frequency is broken. I brought it to repair service and the repair guy said that the machine needs to be replaced. Is it true? because machine replacement is very expensive.

Hallo zusammen,

Kann mir jemand sagen,

woher ich weiß was ich brauch?

iPhone 7 A1660 (Verizon) Logic Board

iPhone 7 A1778 (AT&T) Logic Board

etc.

Besitze ein iPhone 7, 128 GB, mit Fingerabdruck Sensor. Hab bei meiner Recherche erfahren, das der Fingerabdruck Sensor mit den Mainboard kompatibel seien muss, dass er weiterhin funktioniert.

Kann mir jemand helfen und genau sagen was ich da nun kaufen muss, oder was es beim kauf zu beachten gibt so das am Ende nach der Reparatur auch alles wieder funktioniert :D

Danke schonmal

Marvin
