Use this guide to bring life back to your iPhone 7 Plus 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 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 disconnecting the display.

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%.

  1. iPhone 7 Plus Battery 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 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.

    The recommendation of discharging the battery is completely unnecessary. Even a 25% charged battery can explode. Completely ridiculous suggestion.

    pargoff - Yanıt

    The risk of thermal runaway on these batteries decreases with the battery's SOC (state of charge). Below 50% charge the risk is fairly low, and at 25% charge the risk of a thermal event is near zero. If I recall correctly, the same suggestion appears in Apple's official (non-public) service manuals for the iPhone.

    Jeff Suovanen -

    @jeffsu Yes, that is correct. Apple does require all certified staff to discharge the battery below 25%. This is an industry standard for all LiION batteries. If you don’t want to do this, just make sure to not puncture the battery and disconnect it first thing.

    Ben Meinhart - Yanıt

    Hang on a second here, doesn’t the Ifixit part I ordered come with the seals? The display assembly? It doesn’t. Now I have to wait another week?!

    bester - Yanıt

    I just found the instructions on how to install the seals AFTER I was completed and had to figure it out. Maybe, just maybe you should link this somewhere on the guild instead of buried in a comment. Just a thought.

    Charles Meitin - Yanıt

    Step 1 is: Read through all the steps and comments or the method prior to starting on this Step 1. There's a lot of much needed information and experience that you can learn from which will reduce the chance of struggling, wasting time or even breaking your device.

    My favourites are:

    Use a hot water bottle.

    Label all screws you remove with their size and location on a piece of paper with double sided sticky tape.

    Test the lightning assembly at step 13

    There is a Standoff driver bit in the box, don't use a screwdriver.

    • 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.

    How long should I use a hairdryer for?

    Warren Binder - Yanıt

    I used it until it was hot to the touch but not too hot where you burn yourself.

    Hey, I just took apart my first iPhone 7 plus today, and it was easier for me to use guitar picks and a magic glass tool. I did tear the home flex on the screen—now I know to be more careful of that on disassembly—-~Katrina of iPad Rehab Microsoldering

    jessabethany - Yanıt

    First I tried to remove the screen with the hot iOpener, but it doesn’t worked, the day after I putted the Iphone in the sun for a while and then used the hot iOpener, then the screen was easy to remove :-)

    Marc Boon - Yanıt

    Get a T-shirt add heat to a lil corner of it, with either a hair straighter or an Iron , touch the T-shirt if it’s seems hot but doesn’t burn u hold that lil hot piece of T-shirt against the edge ur trying to pry open , if it’s still not opening add a I’ll more heat,

    www.tertlegerl - Yanıt

    I don’t think the iOpener was effective at softening the adhesive. Using a suction cup and the spudger is good enough.

    Mac - Yanıt

    I took a hot water bottle and layed it on the display of the iPhone for a minute, because I did not have an iOpener. That worked for me perfect.

    • Apply a suction cup to the lower half of the front panel, 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.

    Hi! My suction cup doesn’t work. It won’t strongly suck on my screen. Does anyone have any advice?

    • Pull up on the suction cup with firm, constant pressure to create a slight gap between the front panel and rear case.

    • Insert the flat end of a spudger 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, rock the screen up and down to weaken the adhesive until you can fit a spudger inside.

    • While pulling up on the suction cup, twist the spudger to widen the opening between the screen and rear case.

    Be very careful not to pull up with too much force. My screen just shattered while I was pulling up with my suction cup. (There were no previous cracks or chips or anything).

    Benjamin Pounds - Yanıt

    I’m stuck on this part. I’ve heated the bottom up and attached the suction cup right above the home button, but I can’t pull it apart. I feel like I’m going to break the glass display. Tips?

    whtafrcn420 - Yanıt

    Someone mentioned above, using strong tape helps .

    MajorCouillon - Yanıt

    You won’t be able to put the spudger into the gap unless the phone is in a vertical position (speaker side up) in your hands.

    Mac - Yanıt

    read steps 4-9 before attempting. I cracked my glass because I didn’t

    David Lei - Yanıt

    My first 7 Plus opening. I pulled up the screen just enough to insert a thin guitar pick at the bottom of the phone to break the adhesive. I didn’t even create a gap as such. I then ran the pick along the sides to continue to detach the adhesive, just like iFixIt show in Step 10 for the top of the phone.

    My screen already had a crack at the bottom, near the home button, so I was nervous about pulling too hard on the screen. It had a screen protector fitted so maybe that helped keep it all together.

    iFixIt’s use of a spudger at the bottom of the phone looked hazardous to me, especially with my damaged screen.

    Big Ed - Yanıt

    This must be a joke. I’ve been trying for days to pull open the iphone like this. Doesn’t work. I bent the ring on the suction cup trying to pull it off, but nothing happens, no gap, not remote possibility of a pick or spudger getting in there.

    James Osborne - Yanıt

    Ended up using a blowdryer and a razor blade. Bottom got scratched up, but there was no way that fat plastic spudger was going to fit. I got the razor under the corner, from there worked to middle and twisted with repeatedly adding heat. Lots of heat.

    • Insert the flat end of the spudger between the front panel and the rear case at the lower left edge of the iPhone.

    • Slide the spudger up the left edge of the phone starting at the lower edge and moving towards the volume control buttons and silent switch, breaking up the adhesive holding the display in place.

    • Do not try to pry the top edge of the display away from the rear case, as it is held in place by plastic clips that may break.

    • 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.

    So if I broke the cable that connects the display to the logic board. What replacement part would I need to order now?

    • Remove the following four tri-point Y000 screws securing the lower display cable bracket to the logic board:

    • Three 1.2 mm screws

    • One 2.6 mm screw

    Is it really safe to lay the device fully open like a book? The cable leading to the LCD gets stretched across the sharp edge of the aluminum edge of the back cover.

    u204863 - Yanıt

    Generally I'd say no, it's not safe. In reality I've seen a bit of variance in the cable length, and sometimes it'll be fine—but mostly I'd be prepared to prop the display up or hold it in place at a slight angle so it doesn't put too much stress on the cables. On prior iPhones it was easy to rubberband the display to a box or a can of soda, and something like that would probably work well here too. Use your own judgment.

    Jeff Suovanen -

    You could stick the suction cup back on, near the right side of the phone, with the blue hook oriented in such a way that it becomes a stand for the screen. That way it won’t open much more than 90 degrees, and leaves both your hands free.

    Mark -

    The tri wing screws are so hard to remove. What's the trick?

    shannon caldwell - Yanıt

    At first I think I was being too careful and was getting no where. I got better results by pressing down on the screwdriver with more pressure while turning and those little screws came right out.

    LadyTech - Yanıt

    I cannot remove one of the corner screws in this step and i have used the tweezers and the y000 tri tip and i am afraid that it is stripping it. is there a work around for this step?

    Katherine Monday - Yanıt

    @katmonday1 No workaround unfortunately. Make sure the driver tip is in good condition and fits the screw correctly. Seat it in the screw, hold the driver perfectly vertical, press down hard (and maintain it), and turn. It’ll come out. If it’s really stripped you’ll have to get more aggressive—try one or more of the techniques in this guide or get some help. Good luck!

    Jeff Suovanen -

    my screwdriver will only remove the 2.6mm screw and not the others, what shall i do?

    AubreyG1 - Yanıt

    A tip to remember which screw is which as the differences are pretty tiny: I used different colored sharpie fine-points and made a mark on the top of the screws before removing. I thought about having strips of tape that I stuck similar sizes to, but the coloring seemed to work more easily. I only did this for step 11 and it saved me down the road when trying to differentiate the 1.2 and the 1.3mm screws!

    Trey Smith - Yanıt

    STOP! Before you remove Any screws, be sure to create several bins to hold the various sizes in… or mark them like Trey suggested. I failed to pay attention because I thought they were all the same… they are not. It is very hard to figure out the sizes if you remove them all and store them in a single location.

    John Grant - Yanıt

    i had a piece of paper with the steps numbered that involved screws. I had double sided tape on the paper and the number of screws and thier position marked.

    • Remove the lower display cable bracket.

    I am confused, please help. LOL the bracket, the very first one being removed. I see it has three screws the same size and one a different size? I've been trying to fix my daughter's phone and ordered a 0.6 mm Tri Wing screwdriver for iPhone 7 plus /Apple watch. It seems to fit the screws and it seems to be turning them although I can't see that well but they're not coming out. However when I used it on a smaller bracket with two screws they came right out so I'm thinking I don't have the right screwdriver I am at my Wit's End!! I have been working on this phone or attempting to for a while now. I cannot find a list anywhere of the exact size screwdrivers needed to Take apart an iPhone 7 plus. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    chris west - Yanıt

    If your tri-wing screwdriver worked for other tri-point screws in the phone, then it should work for the screws you are struggling with! If it feels like the screws are spinning but not coming out, try to use tweezers to pull them out. I often struggle with tri-point screws, and need to apply some downward pressure to remove them. This can be risky though, as you do not want to strip the screw or damage components underneath the bracket. If you continue to struggle, you can give this driver and this bit a try.

    Scott Havard - Yanıt

    Also be aware that the battery connector might stick to the bottom of the steel bracket. This part had me a bit puzzled at first. lol

    Just gently pry the connector off the steel bracket to release it and be sure the connector isn’t allowed to accidentally reconnect to the board.

    • 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.

    You could cover the battery socket with a small piece of tape to make sure that it doesn’t accidentally re-connect. It’s not likely to, but I liked the peace of mind.

    Mark - Yanıt

    on reassembly, make sure that the connector cable is back in place, along side the battery, and not up, or on top in any way.

    MajorCouillon - Yanıt

    After this step it is worth jumping to step 36 and disconnecting the lighting connector assembly (indicated with the orange rectangle) and connecting the new cable to test it out. After attaching the new lightning connector assembly, reattach the battery, and try plugging it in to see if the new assembly works correctly. If it does, then power down the phone, disconnect the battery, and disconnect the new lightning connector assembly. Then continue. If it doesn’t work, this check will save you a couple of hours of work.

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

    • Use the flat end of 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 re-attach press connectors, press down on one end until it clicks into place, then repeat on the other 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.

    The note about the danger of pressing on the connector incorrectly is very legitimate. Though I find it more practical to use a wide (1.5 cm) case opener tool to press it down all at once. Minimizes risk of bending the connector.

    alicenine84 - Yanıt

    Care should be taken while removing the last 1.0mm screw, on the far right in the picture. This screw is screwed into another screw (or standoff) beneath the bracket. This standoff may come unscrewed and upon removing the bracket you may find the screw and standoff are still attached to the bracket. Do not lose this part if you decide to separate them , the standoff is not a normal phillips, and may require a special driver to reinstall. I used the phillips to start it back in, and relied on the screw to tighten it upon reassembly.

    Benji - Yanıt

    I know this is late bit a trick I use to put the standoffs in (had to do 2 cause someone lost the screws I was replacing) is to take the screw that goes in it srew them together loosely to give it a fake phillips head then gently screw both into the spot the standoff goes in. you can then take the phillips out (may need to put a spudger between the screw and standoff to keep the standoff down then use a tiny flathead to gently tighten the standoff down. its a few steps but makes life easier if you need to replace it quickly.

    Stephen Patterson -

    I was able to remove the first 1.0 mm three tri-point Y000 screw from the bracket but I cannot for the life of me get the other 1.0 mm screw undone or the one 1.3 mm screw undone. Any tips?

    I tried pressing down a bit harder and I even put the first screw back in to see if it helped me loosen the other two but it did not work.

    • Disconnect the front panel sensor assembly connector from its socket on the logic board.

    Make sure that the orientation of the cable when you attach is correct! See the picture for the correct orientation.

    When removing the old adhesive from the edges, duct tape can be useful. Simply use small strips of duct tape and your spudger to press the tape’s adhesive side carefully into the edges of the phone’s display and slowly peel the duct tape away from the display. The duct tape should pick up the remaining adhesive and carry it away from the edges. use the tip of the spudger to gently scrape away any remaining dirt or film from the crease around the edge and repeat the action with a new strip of tape to pick up any dirt, adhesive or grime from the surface. This should save considerable time.

    William Karis - Yanıt

    If you’re replacing the battery, removing the Taptic Engine gives you a much better chance of removing the battery adhesive strips successfully. To keep them from snagging and breaking, you want to pull them from as low an angle as possible. With the Taptic Engine in the way, you have to pull them at almost 90 degrees, or risk snagging them on the Taptic Engine.

    Jeff Suovanen -

    I agree with Jamie Liao above. Skips steps 18-24 as described. Before proceeding with step 25, I heated a microwavable hot/cold compress (used to treat muscle strains). I set the iPhone back casing on the heated compress before pulling out the adhesive strips.

    Again, there is no need to do steps 18 through 24.

    i didn’t remove this and had major issues pulling the adhesive strips out. I literally couldn’t grasp them and then when i did, they broke! UGH!

    Use a fingernail to get one corner started, then the flat end of a spudger does a good job of getting the rest.

    In your step 24 going on to step 25 you recommend peeling all three battery adhesive tabs up, and then pulling them out.

    I STRONGLY RECOMMEND peeling ONE tab up at a time, and then pulling it out immediately in one action.

    This prevents the pulled up, but as yet not pulled out, tabs contracting back, lost underneath the battery.

    I also reccomend pulling the outer tabs first leaving the centre one until last as it's easier to hold on to a battery straight, than one which is additionally trying to rotate

    • Try to keep the strips flat and unwrinkled during this procedure; wrinkled strips will stick together and break instead of pulling out cleanly.

    • Slowly pull one battery adhesive tab away from the battery, toward the bottom of the iPhone.

    • Pull steadily, maintaining constant tension on the strip until it slips out from between the battery and the rear case. For best results, pull the strip at a 60º angle or less.

    • The strip will stretch to many times its original length. Continue pulling and re-grab the strip near the battery if necessary.

    I broke 2 out of three of the adhesive strips doing it this way. On my third attempt I would pull a little bit of the adhesive strip out with one hand. And with the other hand use a finger to press down lightly on the adhesive strip as I was pulling it out. This pushes the strip down from the battery and frees the adhesive from it. You can feel the adhesive strip give way as you do. I did this very incrementally for what seemed like forever. I then used my tweezers to retrieve the first two adhesive strips out from under the battery ( They did not recoil too far) and repeated the same tactic as I did with the third adhesive strip. It was not too difficult to finish the job after that.

    One important remark : once you start pulling out one band, do not stop/pause in the middle of removing the band (to get a call or anything). Gently pull until it’s fully out.

    • Repeat the previous step for the second and third strips.

    • Hold down the battery as you remove the final strip, or the strip may fling the battery when it separates from the case.

    • If you removed all adhesive strips successfully, skip the next step.

    • Otherwise, if any of the adhesive strips broke off underneath the battery and could not be retrieved, continue with the next step below.

    Step 26 is when it’s time to remind ourselves we’re having fun! That tape material sure does stretch a lot so be mindful of your work station. I almost knocked a drink off the table. Thanks

    • If any of the adhesive strips broke off and the battery remains stuck to the rear case, remove it by adding a few drops of isopropyl alcohol (90% or greater) underneath the battery near the stuck strip(s).

    • After about a minute, gently lift the battery.

    • Do not insert your spudger in the area between the volume down (-) button and the top edge of the battery, or you may damage the volume control cable lying underneath.

    • Do not pry against the logic board or you may damage the phone.

    • Don't try to forcefully lever the battery out. If needed, apply a few more drops of alcohol to further weaken the adhesive. Never deform or puncture the battery with your pry tool.

    • If the battery remains stuck to the rear case, prepare an iOpener or use a hair dryer to heat the rear case directly behind the battery. It should be slightly too warm to touch comfortably.

    • Overheating the iPhone may ignite the battery.

    • A piece of dental floss may be used to separate the battery from the rear case. A stronger alternative to dental floss is an unwound guitar string, such as a 0.009 E string from a 12-string set. Thread the floss or string behind the upper battery corners, bring the ends together, wrap them around a folded cloth, and pull evenly.

    i messed up and broke the strips. I had to carefully use a blow dryer on the back of the phone to heat the strips to the point of removal. VERY careful not to let the phone get too hot. I was nervous all the time that the battery which was a bit swollen, was going to explode.

    • Remove the battery.

    • If your replacement battery came in a plastic sleeve, remove the sleeve before installation by pulling it away from the ribbon cable.

    • If there's any alcohol solution remaining in the phone, carefully wipe it off or allow it to air dry before installing your new battery.

    • Before you adhere the replacement battery, temporarily reconnect the battery connector to the logic board socket. This ensures that the battery is properly aligned in its recess.

    • Adhere the battery, disconnect it, and continue reassembling your device.

    • If your new battery doesn’t have adhesive preinstalled, refer to this guide to replace the adhesive strips.

    • Perform a force restart after reassembly. This can prevent several issues and simplify troubleshooting.

    When it came time to adhere the new battery in place, I realized there was a little space on all sides of the battery. I wasn’t sure how to position it, so I just centered it. But when I went to reattach the connector back to the logic board, it wasn’t aligned. I had to remove part of the strips and was able to salvage enough adhesive to reposition it. It was frustrating and I think giving people a heads up in future would be helpful. Maybe this is noted somewhere, but if it is, I missed it.

    I’m super pleased with the process otherwise. And with a new battery, it’s like I have a new phone!

    Philip Kendall - Yanıt

    If you bought the glue strip for the display, you have to place it before you reconnect the display to assemble the iPhone to the back shell. Be careful while removing the plastic protection, the glue will stick at the protection foil.

    Michael Maier - Yanıt

    These glue strips gave me issues. I ended up putting them on backwards and therefore the little edges that needed to be tucked under on the bottom were opposite and i had to tear them off on both the top and bottom because they ‘hung-over’. I have a bad hangover from hanging over this iphone for 3 hours trying to find tiny screws and not break my back or have an old bulging battery explode in my face. Not worth it.

    Tina Matthews - Yanıt

    And the phone still doesn’t work

    Tina Matthews - Yanıt

    I ran through this, and on reassembly the home button didn’t function properly. I found a link that said if you used alcohol to clean the edges in preparation for the new seal, that the alcohol will affect the home button. Drying it out gently with a light blast of compressed or warm air should resolve this. For me it didn’t. Next link I found warned that if the home button screw was too tight try backing it out and retightening it just to the point of resistance. Doing that restored the home button functionality.

    One other tip: reinstall the haptic generator before installing the battery to ensure the correct battery placement.

    Great instructions! Thanks iFixIt!

    sjzack31 - Yanıt


Compare your new replacement part to the original part—you may need to transfer remaining components or remove adhesive backings from the new part before installing.

To reassemble your device, follow the above steps in reverse order.

Do I need any adhesive to attach the screen back to the body after replacing the old battery with a new one?

Kaustubh Iyer - Yanıt

The display is held in with screws and clips, so everything will work fine if you reassemble the phone without replacing the adhesive. That said, your phone won't be as waterproof as it used to be. We do have replacement adhesive available for you, but we're still working on putting together a clear guide on how to install it properly. (Stay tuned!)

Jeff Suovanen -

no, you can use the same, unless you dont use the hairdryer/iOpener, then you will have to use a special adhesive

Will this break it’s water resistance?

AdamTGG - Yanıt

Yep. It’s not worth the risk. Just take the device to an Apple Store and pay the $80. That way you not only have a water resistant device, you also have a 90 day warranty on the battery AND the work performed on it. So if the phone’s water resistance fails because of the adhesive, Apple will replace the device without any additional cost.

when you open up the phone you might think that you don’t need to remove the Taptic Engine for the battery change. But when the adhesive breaks and you will need more space to pull the remaining adhesive out.

Procedure rating is difficult. Very capable person here. I used to replace cracked screens on the 3 and 3S all the time when I was a lower end SE at my old software dev employer. (I had replaced everything on the 3s, home button, camera, battery, screen, etc.) Granted it's a different phone today, but I'm cautious, careful, and patient. Off the bat I cracked the screen because the instructions said to "twist the spudger to widen the opening". Tuck me. Crack spread out from the home button to ear piece. I used a Dyson hair dryer for 45 seconds to heat up phone base. After the crack I taped the screen w box packing tape to keep glass from going all over. Removal was fine after that. Didnt need additional heat, but it doesn't matter. Separated the phone and didn't bother replacing the battery now that I need a $75 screen. Using work phone as only phone for now.

I used 2 iFixit kits to replace batteries in an iPhone 7 Plus and an iPhone X this week. Both jobs went smoothly, thanks to these online guides. The batteries showed 100% capacity with 0 cycles in coconutBattery Plus readouts. The batteries even were recognized by iOS as “Apple” batteries in the Settings/Battery app. This is a huge change as previous iFixit batteries I have installed were not recognized by iOS. Both iFixit kits contained all the exact tools needed, plus perimeter gaskets to reseal the screen to the body. The iPhone X kit even contained a new speaker gasket. Wow! iFixit is the best resource for Apple do-it-yourselfers. Thank you!

I need some help, please. The battery on my iPhone 7 plus swelled (not original ) so I bought a replacement and I changed it, at first it wasn’t charging even though it was showing as it was, the percentage still the same, then it started to do some funny things like draining the battery, going from 83 to 20 in a minute, and then it was impossible to use as it was restarting all the time. I thought something wasn’t connected properly or maybe I damaged something when I replaced it, I tried many times but it was doing the same. I put back the old swelled battery and it was fine, so I realised the battery was faulty, so Ive got a new replacement and its doing the same…. the only difference that I can see between the new replacements and swelled one is the APN number being 616-00249 and the old one 616-00250 but i’m not sure if that has anything to do with this problem…
