The vagaries of iPhone repair
In principle, Apple’s basic policy is focused on the fact that it is better to replace, rather than repair in the field, a damaged gadget.
Anyone who addresses the problem of a broken screen will first of all be offered the opportunity to replace the broken iPhone with a new one. with an additional charge. Instead of a broken one, you get a factory tested gadget that meets high quality standards, with a full cycle of a one-year warranty.
iPhone 7 Plus Screen Replacement done in 6 minutes
Please note that in the event of any intervention (not by authorized center employees). during the warranty period, you automatically lose the ability to replace the iPhone with a new one (with a surcharge). This is the main condition of this program.
Therefore, even a broken smartphone should not be opened. He will then be sent to the manufacturer. to perform professional repairs and complete restoration of all settings, in accordance with the standards of the enterprise.
What do you get when you contact a third-party service center? In the best case. a couple of months. for a second call for free, with an unpredictable result. And all this for about the same money as when exchanging with a surcharge, plus you can forget about the manufacturer’s warranty.
In general, replacing the broken glass of the screen is a very scrupulous business. Often, service centers offer to change the entire screen module at once. And with the right “donors”, you know, it’s still stressful. smartphones are new. A large number of original spare parts (or their counterfeit equivalents) should appear only by the end of January-February 2017. And they will cost 20-30 thousand rubles.
But how then to be? Do not pay almost half the cost of a gadget to replace the display. And besides, it is not known how successful the replacement procedure will be. Nobody guarantees you the same high performance as the working original.

And again, damage to damage is different. If the “seven” has a crack on the display, just temporarily close it by sticking any protective film, it will protect against further depressurization and simultaneously strengthen weak points.
In cases where the screen is cracked in many places after a fall, but continues to work, the touch “Home” responds adequately to commands. it makes sense to try to replace only the glass. We recommend not to postpone the trip to the workshop, as microscopic debris can damage the matrix. And then you will have to change it, and this will definitely cost a pretty penny.
The main problem here is that it is very difficult to remove the glass and reattach it, avoiding the appearance of uneven adhesion of it to the screen. Even professionals don’t always get it right. In this regard, we strongly recommend not to engage in amateur performances, but to contact verified offices.
Also, to carry out such work, you will need special glue and a whole list of additional devices and materials, which are not advisable to purchase for a one-time procedure. So you shouldn’t experiment, like “it will work, it will not work” on such an expensive device as the iPhone.
And it’s better not to save money, and replace the entire display module in the assembly. You can easily cope with this procedure yourself. That’s just for now, the problem is to find a spare part as close as possible to the original. If you are lucky enough to get a new display module, you can try to dismantle the old one, and reassemble the smartphone as a Lego. How to do it. see further.
IPhone 7 glass replacement at home
Despite the fact that the new Apple flagships, starting in 2016, have become dust and water resistant, this did not save them from other mechanical damage. Shattered display glass tops the top 10.
As an evil, the weighty iPhone with acceleration falls exactly on the fragile display, and not on the durable metal “back”. No matter how strong and hardened the glass is, it cannot tolerate close contact with asphalt (concrete). And a line of frustrated users goes to the workshops, whose devices have lost in the battle of technology against Earth’s gravity.
Algorithm for self-replacement screen iPhone 7
If this does not scare you, and, most importantly, you managed to find a suitable donor (or a new spare part), you can try to install it yourself. There is nothing extra-complicated about it.
The sealed iPhone 7 is slightly more difficult to disassemble than its predecessors. his joints are glued with a special insulating compound. To facilitate the process, we recommend that you warm them up a little with a hair dryer to soften the glue joints. Next, you need to unscrew the two bolts near the only lightning port with a special star screwdriver.
Walk around the perimeter of the joint under the top of the screen with any suitable object (a plastic spatula, for example), starting at the area near the port. This will allow you to peel off and detach the side latches, then gently pry up and slowly begin to detach the top of the screen from the case. Do not make sudden movements. this can damage the latches and thin connecting cables that power the display.
We draw your attention to the fact that new iPhones open like a book. Therefore, when disconnecting, you need to move from the port. and along the left edge (on the side opposite to the camera window).
Now our task is to unscrew many bolts on the strips that protect the loops. We remove them in the places marked with arrows and unfasten the trains with a spatula. To avoid a short circuit, it is imperative to de-energize the system by disconnecting the loop coming from the battery! Then detach the cable leading to the camera and speaker.
After that, you can completely remove the top of the screen. Now it’s time to mount a new replacement module. in the photo it is on the left. We need to transfer the camera, the top speaker and the “Home” button from the native device to it.
Carefully remove the tape securing the connecting wires and the bright protective film from it, then remove the speaker and camera module from the home part of the screen (on the right in the photo). To do this, unscrew the screws marked in the photo below, and, pushing the camera cable away, take out the ear speaker, then carefully disconnect the rest of the camera cables and pull it out. Here’s what should happen. Now it’s time to dismantle the home button “Home” from the broken display module. Again, we unscrew the screws at the marked points, disconnect the cables and take out our unique button (it will fall out by itself. in the direction opposite to you). The cover plate can be removed from the broken display. Unscrew the screws again at the points indicated in the photo. Unfasten the connecting cables and remove the cover. Now you need to rearrange “Home” on the new display module. Turn it over and reinsert the Home button, pushing the factory protective film off the screen. Connect the cables to it and reassemble all the parts in the reverse order. We remind the sequence of installing the camera module and speaker. First, the camera is inserted into the opening, then the speaker (with the golden side up), and then the contacts are connected. Finally, rearrange the metal protective strip, connect the screen cable. Do not forget to screw in all the screws! In fact, this is not an easy task. after all, they are all different sizes. In order not to lose and not get confused, it is better to lay them out on a sheet of paper, along the way making notes where they are from.
Do not use too much force when screwing them back in, as excessive pressure will apply pressure and may damage the board components or the screen itself.
That’s it, our screen unit is assembled and ready for final installation. After inserting the side latches into the grooves, fasten the cables back, the last will be the power cable. At this stage, you need to check the functionality of the installed module. Press the power button and check that the start-up proceeds normally. Examine the screen for dead pixels or blackouts. Check whether the Home button responds correctly to pressing the button, whether the application lists are scrolling in the menu, whether the camera starts, test the sound. If everything is fine, turn off the device and continue assembling. We fasten the protective pads to the points where the cables are connected. first the ones above the power supply, then the ones near the camera, then put the halves of the smartphone together, starting to snap them. Control the pressure, you should not press hard. It remains to screw in two pentalobe screws and be done. It is clear that after the procedure, your device will lose its tightness. But with a strong desire, it can be restored, many centers already offer such services.
