Use this guide to correctly apply replacement battery adhesive strips in your iPhone 5s, 5c, or SE. Any time you remove the battery, these strips must be replaced. The strips are easily damaged if not applied correctly, so you may want to have a spare set of strips on hand if following this guide for the first time.

Before you begin, you should have removed the battery by following a guide like the ones linked below. Note: iPhone 5 and earlier models do not use any adhesive strips.

If you need to replace the battery adhesive strips in a different model iPhone, use one of the following guides:

  1. Before installing new adhesive strips, temporarily connect your new battery and check its alignment in the iPhone.

    • If everything looks good, disconnect the battery and remove it.

    Non-Sticky Run Through

    Critical to Success is doing a non-sticky run through of these steps. I realized:

    1) Need to remove the screen. I was going to attempt the battery replacement without removing the screen, but after running throught these steps, it was clear I needed the freedom of movement. You only get one shot.

    2) Shape of the connector cable at the socket was more shallow on the new battery. The connector cable has a shape like a flag and flag pole. The original had a ‘V’ shape between flag pole & flag. The new battery had an ‘L’ shape. Using the spluger and a plastic card, I carefully reshaped the connector cable. I was not too picky about matching the shape; Seems like this cable could break. I made just enough shape to route the cable off the socket level, down to the back of the phone where it rejoins the flag pole— If you can imagine it.

    3) Step 7 and 8. In my infinite wisdom, I was going to do steps 7 & 8 differently. Thankfully, I paid attention to these steps. You only get one shot.

  2. Peel off the large blue film liner and remove it from the adhesive strips completely. Take care not to accidentally touch the adhesive strips after this step. The adhesive is good for one use. If it sticks to your finger or another surface accidentally, it must be discarded and replaced. The blue film sometimes has a defect that prevents it from peeling off, and the strips have to be discarded and replaced.

    • If this happens to you and you got your strips from iFixit, contact us here and we'll send you a replacement on the double.

    • In the meantime, you can temporarily reassemble your iPhone with a bit of double-sided tape to hold the battery.

    Be cautious: On some adhesive strip packages (I didn’t buy my at iFixit) they have mixed the colours! Be sure to peel off the largest piece of plastic.

    I wish I had read your comment first; this happened to me too with another company’s adhesive strips and my tab ended up back-to-front. I know now for next time what to look for when orienting the strips and their tab (black surface of the tabs facing upward when laying the strips in to the case).

    Should have mentioned to leave a 1/16” gap at bottom so there's room to fold adhesive removal tab back down, mine so tight no room to fold back ,Hope it goes back together again !

    Use a piece of cardboard paper behind the black tab, to give you some room.

    Fold the adhesive removal black tab before sticking the adhesive,, to give it the shape, and be better prepare for step 10.

    I connected the battery before removing the pink strip; removing the strip was easy with battery connected and the chance of touching adhesive while fiddling with the connector was reduced.

  9. Once the battery sticks, you can't reposition or remove it without destroying the adhesive strips and starting over. Carefully position the battery and set it into the iPhone.
    • Once the battery sticks, you can't reposition or remove it without destroying the adhesive strips and starting over.

    • Carefully position the battery and set it into the iPhone.

    • Leave a small gap (about 2 mm) between the lower edge of the battery and the speaker. This will make it easier to fold down the black tab in a later step.

    Be sure to set the battery closely towards to top of the phone to leave space to fold the black tap of the adhesive tape at the bottom.

    ***** ALERT This is a non obvious failure point. If the battery is too close to the right (lower) end in picture, you can’t fold the black Tab down which is two steps further down. This should be in the main instruction, not as a note. Mine is too close to the home button connector socket, I will try folding the black tab over battery. Report to follow

    Bob McNally - Yanıt

    Thank you both for your comments; I’ve added your tips to the instructions. That said, when photographing this guide, I installed the battery pretty much bang up against the speaker, and was still able to fold the tab down—it just took a little patience. So, don’t anybody panic if you installed your battery a little too far down! You can still complete the repair.

    Jeff Suovanen - Yanıt

    Report on previous ALERT comment…I successfully completed the battery installation and closed up the phone with the black tab lying over the battery rather than tucked down and into the space between the end of the battery and the other components. The case closed up ok, and the end screws went in successfully ( I had to squeeze the case closed to get the screws at the end to line up with the holes on the little tabs inside.

  10. Press the battery firmly into place. Press the battery firmly into place.
    • Press the battery firmly into place.

  11. Use the flat end of your spudger or blunt tweezers to fold the black tab downward, tucking it between the lower edge of the battery and the components lining the bottom edge of the iPhone. Be extremely careful not to poke the battery with any sharp tools during this step.  Accidentally puncturing a lithium-ion battery can cause a dangerous fire.

    No fault of the author(good job credit coming your way), but my adhesive strips were a bear to install. My tabs were two separate as opposed to one long tab. Of course, I messed them up by letting one of the aforementioned tabs touch the adhesive strip. I had to use some double sided tape to finish the install. At least my iPhone 5S is working!

To reassemble your iPhone, return to the guide you used to remove the battery and follow the steps in reverse order.

Remember to take your old battery to an R2 or e-Stewards certified recycler.

Call me crazy, but can’t I just use a thin strip of blu-tack?

domarius - Yanıt

Maybe, but the adhesive strips are designed to be very strong and very thin, and reasonably heat-resistant. This keeps the battery secure even if you shake the phone (or take it jogging), and it won’t come loose if the phone gets hot. The thin profile also means the battery has room to expand slightly without contacting or putting pressure on the display. Considering how cheap the strips are vs. the cost of the expensive phone you are repairing, I tend to err in favor of putting it back together the way it’s designed. But, your phone, your choice!

Jeff Suovanen -

All worked well except removing one of the adhesive strips. I used a “Bed Buddy” microwavable heat pack to warm the phone as directed and it worked fine. So far I’m pleased. Now comes the re-assembly challenge.

Curtis Potter - Yanıt

Use this iFixit video guide for applying the adhesive instead IMO—many people will tell you to apply it to the battery itself instead of the bottom of the case:

At least you have options now. :)
