Before you can lift the display, you have to ensure that there is no glass cracked. In case of cracked glass, prevent the body from being harmed and broken by containing the display glass with a tape.

  • Wear safety eye glasses.
  • Cover the iPhone’s display with a clear packing tape. This will provide structural integrity and will keep the glass from shattering when the display is lifted.

Step 3: Unscrew the unit

There are two 3.8mm Pentalobe screws in the unit placed next to the Lightning connector. Use the iPhone P2 Pentalobe Screwdriver.


Step 4: Safety Opening using the iSclack tool (Skip this step if you are not using the iSclack tool)

The iSclack is a great tool recommended for anyone who repairs 5, 5s, or 5c iPhones. It is a useful tool if the repair involves more than one procedure.


  • Close the iSclack handle and open the suction cup jaws.
  • In between the suction cups, place the iPhone 5c against the plastic depth gauge. Above the home button, make sure that the suction cup is resting on it to open the unit.
  • When the suction cup is set and pressed firmly onto the top and bottom of the display, open the handles of the iSclack tool and close the jaws.

Step 5: Pull up the front panel and the rear case (Skip this step if you are not using the iSclack tool)

  • By closing the handles, the suction cups will be separated, thus pulling the front panel and the rear case from the unit.
  • The use of iSclack ensures that the iPhone is safely opened without damaging its parts and cables.


Note: Proceed to Step 8 if you are using the iSclack tool.

  • Let the strips slip out between the battery and the rear case, keep it at 60 degrees angle or less when pulling the strips.
  • Slowly guide the strips into the corner and upper side of the battery without snagging the battery against the other internal components of the phone.
  • Pull the strips of adhesive, stretching it until it comes out free.
  • Do the same procedures with the second adhesive strips.
