Введение

Use this guide to revive your iPhone 8’s battery life and performance with a new battery. If your battery is swollen, take appropriate precautions.

This guide instructs you to completely detach the display assembly; this is intended to prevent accidental damage to the display cables. If you feel comfortable removing the battery without putting undue strain on the display cables, you can skip the steps for detaching the display. Additionally, while it’s possible to remove the adhesive strips securing the battery as soon as you open the phone, this guide recommends first removing the Taptic Engine. Doing so reduces the risk of breaking the lower adhesive strips accidentally, either by snagging them on the Taptic Engine, or by pulling the strips at too sharp of an angle.

For optimal performance, after completing this guide, calibrate your newly installed battery: Charge it to 100% and keep charging it for at least two more hours. Then use your iPhone until it shuts off due to low battery. Finally, charge it uninterrupted to 100%.

    • 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.

    Even with using high heat from a blow dryer, I had to put the suction cup over the home button or the bottom edge wouldn’t lift at all. That waterproof adhesive is incredibly strong.

  4. 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.

    The screen on my phone was so broken, a suction cup did not work, so I softened the adhesive with a blow dryer and used a Jimmy to carefully pry open the phone from the bottom just enough to slip a pick in.

    Just completed a smashed screen replacement, this is probably the most time consuming part. Used packing tape to cover the screen to help create a suction surface (had to replace it a couple times because it pulls away after a purple good pulls ) Used consistent heat for about 5 minutes, then stuck a pick in the tiniest opening… and pry pry pry!

    I failed at this step. No amount of heating, pulling, and rocking opened up enough of a gap to slip in even a knife let alone the blue plastic tool. That's with a phone that has an undamaged screen - just trying to replace the battery. Apple won this round :(

    Hi ifixit, if you find my method dangerous, please remove it.

    After Step 17, I skipped Step 18 to Step 28.

    At Step 29, I lifted up the four adhesive black pull-tabs to expose the white adhesive side. Next, I use hot air gun and blow on the back cover of the iphone for about a minute (maybe a hairdryer will work too) .

    Warning: Don't overheat the iPhone, or you may accidentally ignite the battery.

    I think the temperature was around 60 DegC.

    Extreme Caution: Do Not overheat. I use my hand to gauge the hotness. Careful not to burn yourself or the board.

    I was able to pull out all the white adhesive tapes easily as the adhesive soften.

    DO NOT TRY this method if you are a novice or inexperience! I am not responsible if you hurt yourself or damage your iphone!

    John - Ответить

    Hey John! I’m glad the repair worked out for you!

    From our research, applying heat does soften the adhesive strips, but it also causes them to lose structural integrity and break more easily. That’s why we normally suggest using heat after the strips are already broken. Removing the Taptic Engine definitely takes a few extra steps, but we feel that it gives fixers the best chance of pulling out the adhesive strips intact.

    Arthur Shi -

    I agree with John, skip 18 through 27. These are to make it easier to remove the battery adhesive. I replaced the batteries on two IPhone 8s. The first one I did all that stuff and the adhesive still broken and I had to carefully pry the battery out anyway. When I reassembled the phone the Home button no longer worked. Looking it up, this is apparently fairly common due to all the fragile wires involved in these steps. The second I skipped these steps and when I reassembled it everything worked fine. Not one of the eight (both phones) adhesive strips came out properly. I fully drained the batteries before doing the repairs. By the way, I use the virtual home button on the one phone, it’s a little annoying, but the phone is still usable if you’re not ready to shell out for a new phone.

    Gary Berman -

    I also skipped these steps. I won’t say it was entirely successful - two of the four adhesive strips broke and could not be grabbed with tweezers. But I had gotten most of the adhesive out already and the battery was quite loose, so I used a warmer under the phone, then gently slid a flat plastic blade under one end of the battery and slowly worked it up the phone. (Dental floss would have been safer-don’t do what I did, kids!)

    I don’t see the point in steps 18-27 if we’re only changing the battery. I pulled out the sticky tape with taptic and all this other jazz still intact. Am I missing something? Reconnecting that taptic connection cost me 5 years off my life, needlessly.

    William Mitchell - Ответить

    Hey William!

    We instruct people to remove the Taptic Engine in order to minimize the chance that the battery adhesive will tear when you try to pull it out. The steep angle you have to pull the adhesive with the Taptic Engine installed dramatically increases the chance that the adhesive will break under the battery.

    Arthur Shi -

    since the sticky tape will usually tear anyway and it is no big deal, I agree stop at this point and take the battery out. Too many things can go wrong removing more screws and connecting/disconnecting all the connectors. Go to video instructions at this point. Wish I did.

    Bob McCall - Ответить

    My tape tore away and now my home button does not work, which from what I see is to do with the tapic engine. It seems to be more dangerous to do that than to use heat and pry the battery out (which I had to do anyway). You should at least put in an warning/option for users.

    Gary Berman - Ответить

    Hi Gary,

    The Home button connector is not related to the Taptic Engine and should not be affected by anything close to the battery adhesive. I would suggest carefully disconnecting and reconnecting the screen connectors, and make sure that there is no debris on the contacts. Be sure to disconnect the battery before you do this, or you will risk damaging the screen.

    • Heat the iPhone until the rear case is slightly too hot to comfortably touch. Don't overheat the iPhone, or you may accidentally ignite the battery.

    • Alternatively, thread a strong piece of string (such as dental floss or a length of thin guitar string) underneath the battery.

    • Pull the string from side to side in a sawing motion all along the length of the battery to separate the adhesive. Do not deform or damage the battery.

    • To protect your fingers, wear gloves or wrap the string ends around a tool (such as the two screwdriver handles shown in the image).

    In my case the floss caught on the sharp edge of the wireless charging coil pulling up the edge of the coil, butane cutting off the floss. I think the coil had been damaged by some previous repair, but be careful. After you pull past the first two adhesive strips, peek under the battery to make sure the floss is sliding over not under the coil. The coil doesn't look like a coil – more like a paper thin pad.

    I made the mistake of powering the phone on once the new battery was connected to make sure it was working, before I put the screen back on. Now my home button doesn’t work, even after two hard resets. Anyone know how I can get it working again? Note I didn’t disconnect the screen or taptic engine or anything else. I just left the screen hinged 90°, the only connector I touched was the battery connector.

    Same issue. Home button is dead. No cables were damaged. Everything else works. Any ideas?

    I had the same issue with the Home button, I turned on Virtual Home Button, which makes the phone usable. Shutting the power off off and restarting the phone bring you to the login screen. go to Settings, Accessibility, Touch, Assistive Touch.

    I recommend making sure the battery connector is lined up with the socket before setting it down on in the compartment, mine was very close, but a little too high and it made getting it connected a little more difficult than it needed to be.

    Performing a force restart at this point makes no sense. Shouldn’t it be performed after the display is installed?

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order. Don't forget to reapply the display adhesive before reinstalling the display.

Take your e-waste to an R2 or e-Stewards certified recycler.

I still did it in 30 minutes….but I am glad I stop repairing phones around the Iphone 6s ! Now it takes serious effors just to replace the battery !

One note on this repair: When reinstalling the standoff that connects to the Taptic Engine, I found that the pointy tip of the spudger fits really well into the little hole at the top of the standoff, and helps with getting it into place and screwing it down if you don’t have a screwdriver bit for the standoff. Hope this is helpful!

Are steps 18 to 27 really required if you’re just replacing the battery?

Daniel Frenberg - Ответить

Hi Daniel!

The pull-stretch adhesive holding the battery has a tendency to tear when they are pulled at a steep angle. When they tear, removing the battery becomes much more difficult. We strongly recommend removing the Taptic Engine in order to give the adhesive the best chance of coming out in one piece.

I tried doing it the ‘easy’ way without those steps. I wound up breaking the top adhesive tabs and it made it a lot harder to remove the battery and took a lot of extra time. If I had to do it again, I would do all the steps. Otherwise, things went very well. Very good instructions.

Mark Myers -

Great guide and great quality of all your tools and replacement parts.

The battery replacement took 50 minutes. The taptic engine took a bit more extra 10 minutes time.

Crushing experiment! The phone wakes up, all installed apps appear on the screen, works well, joins to Wi-Fi, but can’t charge the battery. 1% still remains after three hours, connected to its genuine charger. Well, I’m down and very sad.

Miklos Barton -

I bought the kit from ifixit. I’m power electronics technician and fixed 10 to 20 iPhones in my life without problems. But this time I made the same experience as Miklos Barton. Battery only charges 1%. I checked some YouTube videos, and how to fix this Problem, and they showed that in most cases the MOSFET on top of the battery was ripped of. In my case the MOSFET is in place.

The video show battery removal without taking out the taptic engine first. So, what is the recommend method?

steinmb - Ответить

Removing the Taptic Engine first allows you to pull the battery adhesive at a shallower angle, which decreases the likelihood of broken strips.

Arthur Shi -

I got one question will it detect the battery last time I did a battery replacement The battery won’t detect the iPhone so I’m kinda skeptic about it

Gut Bezeichnet, Schritt führ Schritt

I just completed the battery replacement. I didn’t remove the Taptic Engine, which worked out fine. I used a sock full of microwaved rice for the iOpener and heat gun replacement.

Total time = around 1 hour.

Mistakes = 2

Mistake 1 = I broke the 2 clips at the top of the iPhone. They are incredibly fragile.

Mistake 2 = I pierced the old battery with the tweezers. It melted one of the tweezer arms a little, while the battery puffed up, sparked, and smoked a bit.

to complicated for this 74 year old

Ich habe die Anleitung 1:1 befolgt und es hat gut funktioniert. Zum erwärmen habe ich eine heiße Wärmflasche verwendet. Umbedingt das Repairkit mit Ersatzdichtung kaufen. Super Service von iFix it: Anleitung, Tools, Ersatzteile. DANKE

Hallo, ich habe den Akku erfolgreich nach Anleitung gewechselt. Ebenfalls habe ich den Akku danach wie beschrieben auf 100% geladen und weitere 2 Stunden am Ladekabel belassen. Das iPhone ist zurückgesetzt und hat keine installierten Apps außer den Stockapps von Apple. Der Akku entlädt sich ohne Aktivitäten über Nacht auf ca. 70%, danach geht es weiter runter ohne das iPhone 8 zu benutzen. Kann es sein das die Kalibrierung aus irgendeinem Grund nicht funktioniert hat? Der Akku hat bei 100% Leistung (Batterie Management in den Einstellung) leider nur die gleiche Wirksamkeit wie der alte Akku. Wo liegt hier der Fehler?
