Is the main camera on your iPhone 7 no longer taking great photos? Follow the steps in this guide to replace the rear-facing iSight camera in an iPhone 7.

  1. iPhone 7 Rear Camera Replacement, Pentalobe Screws: step 1, image 1 of 1
    • 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.

  2. iPhone 7 Rear Camera Replacement, iPhone 7 Opening Procedure: step 2, image 1 of 1
    • 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.

  3. iPhone 7 Rear Camera Replacement: step 3, image 1 of 2 iPhone 7 Rear Camera Replacement: step 3, image 2 of 2
    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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.

  5. iPhone 7 Rear Camera Replacement: step 5, image 1 of 3 iPhone 7 Rear Camera Replacement: step 5, image 2 of 3 iPhone 7 Rear Camera Replacement: step 5, image 3 of 3
    • Slide the spudger to the left along the lower edge of the iPhone.

    • Twist the spudger to widen the gap between the display and rear case.

  6. iPhone 7 Rear Camera Replacement: step 6, image 1 of 3 iPhone 7 Rear Camera Replacement: step 6, image 2 of 3 iPhone 7 Rear Camera Replacement: step 6, image 3 of 3
    • Slide the spudger up the left side of the iPhone, starting at the lower edge and moving towards the volume control buttons and silent switch.

    • Do not pry along the top edge of the phone, you risk damaging the plastic clips securing the display.

    • Insert the flat edge of a spudger into the bottom right corner of the device.

    • Twist the spudger to widen the gap between the display assembly and the rear case.

    • Slide the flat end of the spudger up the right side of the phone to break up the adhesive holding the display in place.

    • Do not insert the spudger further than the adhesive to avoid damaging delicate ribbon cables along the right edge.

  8. iPhone 7 Rear Camera Replacement: step 8, image 1 of 2 iPhone 7 Rear Camera Replacement: step 8, image 2 of 2
    • Pull up on the suction cup to lift up the display and open the iPhone.

    • Do not raise the display more than 10º as there are ribbon cables along the right edge of the device connecting the display to the logic board.

  9. iPhone 7 Rear Camera Replacement: step 9, image 1 of 1
    • Pull up on the small nub on the suction cup to remove it from the front panel.

  10. iPhone 7 Rear Camera Replacement: step 10, image 1 of 2 iPhone 7 Rear Camera Replacement: step 10, image 2 of 2
    • Slide an opening pick along the top edge of the iPhone, between the rear case and front panel, to break up the remaining adhesive holding the screen in place.

    • Be careful not to damage the plastic clips on the top edge of the phone.

  11. iPhone 7 Rear Camera Replacement: step 11, image 1 of 3 iPhone 7 Rear Camera Replacement: step 11, image 2 of 3 iPhone 7 Rear Camera Replacement: step 11, image 3 of 3
    • Pull the display assembly slightly away from the top edge of the phone to disengage the clips holding it to the rear case.

    • 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.

  12. iPhone 7 Rear Camera Replacement: step 13, image 1 of 1
    • Remove the lower connector bracket.

  13. iPhone 7 Rear Camera Replacement: step 14, image 1 of 3 iPhone 7 Rear Camera Replacement: step 14, image 2 of 3 iPhone 7 Rear Camera Replacement: step 14, image 3 of 3
    • Use the point of a spudger to lift the battery connector out of its socket on the logic board.

    • Bend the connector cable up slightly to prevent it from making contact with the socket and providing power to the phone.

    • Make sure the battery is disconnected before you disconnect or reconnect the cables in this step.

    • Use a spudger or a fingernail to disconnect the two lower display connectors by prying them straight up from their sockets on the logic board.

    • To reconnect these cables, press down on one end until it clicks into place, then repeat on the opposite end. Do not press down on the middle. If the connector is even slightly misaligned, the connector can bend, causing permanent damage.

    • If you have a blank screen, white lines on the display, or partial or complete lack of touch response after reassembling your phone, try disconnecting and carefully reconnecting both of these cables and make sure they are fully seated.

    • Remove the two 1.3 mm Phillips #000 screws securing the bracket over the front panel sensor assembly connector.

    • Some phones could be Y000. Apple started using Y000 for these at some point in the middle of the product's lifecycle.

  16. iPhone 7 Rear Camera Replacement: step 17, image 1 of 2 iPhone 7 Rear Camera Replacement: step 17, image 2 of 2
    • Disconnect the front panel sensor assembly connector from its socket on the logic board.

    • This press connector should also be reconnected one end at a time to minimize the risk of bending.

    • Remove the following Phillips screws securing the rear camera bracket over the camera module:
