iphone 4 – a list of reasons this phone is not a diy screen repair

Have you just dropped your new iPhone 4 and shattered the “helicopter glass” screen? Don’t worry, you are not alone. Apple has created an even more fragile unit than before, with glass screen’s/surfaces on both sides (sounds like a bit of job security for the Apple repairs department). This article will go through some of the common issues with replacement and why you might not want to attempt this one on your own.

The iPhone 4 is built much more like the first generation iPhone than its two predecessors. The process of screen removal requires the user to remove several essential components that, if broken, will cause the phone to become a lead weight.

The disassembly is far more intricate than simply removing two screws and using a suction cup to repair the glass screen. This model requires many components including the battery, microphone, camera, etc. to be detached from the motherboard prior to accessing the connection screws for the glass screen and LCD. Once those are successfully removed, you must still remove 10 screws, 8 of which have washers, and then carefully pry out the glass screen/LCD unit. In this process several users have already reported that they have broken the cables connecting the glass screen to the motherboard.

The above description along with many more to come is one reason why the novice DIY’er should refrain from attempting this iPhone screen repair on their own.

The one positive about the current design is the ability for the user to change their battery much easier than ever before. The battery is now 3 screws and one back panel away from replacement.

The iPhone 4 proves to be another failed attempt for Apple to secure the iPhone screen from damage.
