If your iPhone 12 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. This guide only covers steps for replacing a full display assembly that comes with a shield plate preinstalled.

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.

  1. iPhone 12 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Remove the pentalobe screws: step 1, image 1 of 1
    • Caution: 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 P2 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?

    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 - Yanıt

    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 - Yanıt

    where can I buy 3M VSB plis!!

    gerardo artigas cuellar - Yanıt

    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 12 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Heat the lower edge of the iPhone: step 3, image 1 of 1
    • 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.

    • 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.

  4. iPhone 12 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Apply suction cup(s): step 4, image 1 of 2 iPhone 12 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 12 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.

    • Hold onto your iPhone securely and close the handle of the iSclack to slightly separate the display from the rear case of the phone.

    • Don't try to completely separate the display; 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 12 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Apply a suction cup: step 6, image 1 of 2 iPhone 12 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Apply a suction cup: 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 very edge 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 display.

  7. iPhone 12 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Lift the display slightly: step 7, image 1 of 3 iPhone 12 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Lift the display slightly: step 7, image 2 of 3 iPhone 12 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 display up and down to weaken the adhesive until you create enough of a gap to insert your tool.

    • 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.

    • Only insert the pick a few millimeters (about the width of the display bezel.) Otherwise, you may damage the display cables along this side of the iPhone.

  9. iPhone 12 Pro Max Screen Replacement: step 9, image 1 of 3 iPhone 12 Pro Max Screen Replacement: step 9, image 2 of 3 iPhone 12 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 opening pick too far into the iPhone, or you may damage internal components.

  10. iPhone 12 Pro Max Screen Replacement: step 10, image 1 of 3 iPhone 12 Pro Max Screen Replacement: step 10, image 2 of 3 iPhone 12 Pro Max Screen Replacement: step 10, image 3 of 3
    • The top edge of the display is secured with both glue and clips.

    • Insert your pick into the right edge of the phone. Slide it around the top-right corner and across the top edge.

    • 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.

  11. iPhone 12 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Open the iPhone: step 11, image 1 of 3 iPhone 12 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Open the iPhone: step 11, image 2 of 3 iPhone 12 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Open the iPhone: step 11, image 3 of 3
    • If you haven't removed your suction handle or iSclack, remove it now.

    • Open the iPhone by swinging the display up from the right side, like the front 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 four 1.1 mm-long Y000 screws securing the battery and display connector cover.

    • 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.

  12. iPhone 12 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Remove the battery and display connector cover: step 13, image 1 of 1
    • Remove the battery and display connector cover.

  13. iPhone 12 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Disconnect the battery: step 14, image 1 of 2 iPhone 12 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Disconnect the battery: step 14, 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.

  14. iPhone 12 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Disconnect the display cable: step 15, image 1 of 2 iPhone 12 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Disconnect the display cable: step 15, image 2 of 2
    • Use a spudger or a fingernail to disconnect the display 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.

  15. iPhone 12 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Unscrew the front sensor connector cover: step 16, image 1 of 1
    • Use a Y000 driver to remove the four 1.1 mm-long screws securing the front sensor connector cover.

    • Swing the cover up from the left until the small clip on the right unhooks.

    • Remove the cover.

    • During reassembly, insert the clip on the right edge into its slot first, then hinge the rest of the cover into place.

  17. iPhone 12 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Disconnect the front sensors: step 18, image 1 of 2 iPhone 12 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Disconnect the front sensors: step 18, image 2 of 2
    • Use a spudger or a fingernail to disconnect the front sensor assembly cable connector.

    when lifting up the front sensor assembly cable connector, you should use the flat end of the spudger. Using the pointed end as shown in the picture runs the risk of damaging components on the board and/or the cable connector itself.

    • Use tweezers or 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.

  21. iPhone 12 Pro Max Screen Replacement, Heat the top edge of the display: step 22, image 1 of 1
    • 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.

    • A hair dryer, heat gun, or hot plate may also be used, but be careful not to overheat the display.

    • Use the point of a spudger to lift and separate the ambient light sensor from its notch in the front panel.

    • Take care not to damage the light sensor ribbon cables while prying.

    • Continue sliding the spudger underneath the ambient light sensor and its cable to separate the adhesive securing the cable.

    • 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.
