Use the following picture guide to easily change the battery on your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus. You should make a backup of your iPhone before changing the battery and then turn it off.

Please note: After replacing your screen your iPhone will no longer be waterproof and you will lose your warranty.

Step 1: Remove pentalobe screws

Turn off your iPhone before you start the repair!

Remove the two pentalobe screws on the bottom of the iPhone.

Step 2: Remove display

Carefully lift the screen out of the frame using the suction cup and the thin metal spatula.

Step 3: Remove Display from frame

Carefully slide the metal spudger along the other side to break up the adhesive holding the display in place. Be careful along the top edge of the phone and only loosen the adhesive, as you risk damaging the plastic clips holding the screen in place.

Step 4: Release Metal Cover

Open the screen like you would a book so you are able to reach these these screws securing the metal cover. Note exactly which screw goes where!

Step 5: Remove Connector

Remove the battery connector from the logic board using the plastic spatula.

Step 6: Release Battery

Very carefully pull the black ends of the adhesives stuck to both ends of the battery. Pull them steadily, one by one, with a maximum angle of about 60° and maintain tension until they slips out from under the battery. The strips will lengthen considerably, simply grab them near the battery and continue pulling.

In case they rip or you are unable to get them out completely use the green spudger to carefully lift the battery.

Be very careful not to damage your battery!

Step 7: Installation of new Battery

Remove all remaining adhesive from the frame. Place two strips of double-sided adhesive tape in the frame to hold the new battery in place and install it into the device. Attach the connector to the logic board.

Step 8: Attach backcover

Reattach the metal cover with these screws.

Step 9: Secure Display

Press the screen into the frame of the device and secure everything with the two pentalobe screws.
