A quick way to be successful on this job is to understand how to disconnect the broken display panel. Once you’re done with it, screen replacement will be a piece of cake. So, let’s begin with the step-by-step guide: Step 1: Remove Pentalobe Screws Turn off your iPhone 7 and make sure it’s at least 25% charged.Remove the pentalobe screws from the bottom edge. Step 2: Tape the Display If the display glass is severely cracked, use packing tape to cover the entire face. Note: Skip this step if the display is in fine condition. Step 3: Soften Your Display Glass Adhesive Use iOpener or hairdryer to heat iPhone’s lower edge to make the adhesive soft for easy display glass removal. Step 4: Use a Suction Cup Put a suction cup on the screen, slightly above your iPhone 7’s home/Touch ID area.Gradually pull the cup until you see a gap between the rear case and the display assembly. Step 5: Get Spudger to Remove Adhesive Insert the spudger while pulling the suction cup and twist it to make the gap more spacious.Slide/move the spudger carefully to all the corners of your iPhone 7 to break the adhesive –from the lower edge to the silent and volume buttons. Step 6: Pull Suction Cup at 10° Angle Pull the suction cup up to a 10° angle until you see the ribbon cables and logic board.Now, remove the cup from iPhone’s front panel by pulling up the small nub Step 7: Move Opening Pick Around the Corners Get a thin pick and run it along the sides between the front panel and rear case to break the rest of the adhesive to remove the screen easily. Step 8: Detach Panel from the Rear Case Detach the clips to separate the rear case from the panel partially.Carefully and gradually remove the display, just like opening a book. Step 9: Pull Out the Connector Bracket Use a 1.2mm and 2.4mm screwdriver to open Y000 tri-point screws.Take out the connector bracket Step 10: Remove Display Connectors Use the pointy part of the spudger to pull up the battery connector from its socket.Next, detach two display connectors from the logic board. Step 11: Disconnect Front Panel Remove the two Y000/Phillips #000 screws from the front panel to detach the bracket.Doing so will help you disconnect your front panel sensor from its socket attached to the logic board. Step 12: Detach Display Assembly Slowly hold the display assembly and completely separate it from the rare case. Step 13: Pull Out Touch ID Sensor Bracket Remove the Y000 screws, which hold the bracket over the Touch ID sensor/home, and take out the bracket. Step 14: Pry the Left Edge Disconnect the home sensor cable by prying it beneath the left edge. Use a thin opening pick to remove the Touch ID sensor/home cable from the back of the display panel. Note: If it is difficult to pry, use an iOpener or hair dryer over the left edge to soften the adhesive. Step 15: Remove Touch ID Sensor Lift and remove your Touch ID sensor/home assembly from the front side of your iPhone’s display.
