iPhone 5S Broken Screen: How to Replace the Front Assembly

It’s a pity if a brand new iPhone 5S falls down or something else happens to it breaking the screen. Customers with AppleCare+ can take their device back to service center or Apple store and replace for a new smartphone. Is there a way to fix iPhone 5S broken screen without warranty?

Of course, you can DIY and replace the front assembly getting the beautiful look back. It might look a bit complicated, but you should simply follow these steps and get rid of the cracked glass or LCD that doesn’t function.

How to Repair Broken Display on iPhone 5S Instruction

Free Your Display Assembly

Step 1. Prepare for the work. You need particular parts and tools to start: a new black or white screen [depending on your preferences], suction cup, razor blade, spudger tool, screwdrivers [5-point security one and standard #000 Phillips one] and an opening tool.

Step 2. Turn off the 5S model. You must not repair a gadget if it’s turned on. Remember this simple rule.

Step 3. Take a look at your dock connector and remove 2 security screws on its two sides [they connect your screen to frame]. Use the 5-point security screwdriver for this purpose.

Step 4. Pull up your broken display using the suction cup at about 1 inch [place it somewhere above your Home button and gently pull it upwards] but don’t pull the display all the way up because there is one cable that still connects your display with the Touch ID sensor.
Notes. If the screen is completely broken and you can’t use the suction cup, work with a razor blade placing it between the display assembly and frame. Be very gentle.

Step 5. With the help of the spudger tool remove the shield that covers your Touch ID cable. Be careful to not lose this metal guard. Disconnect your iPhone 5S Touch ID.

Step 6. Your display is still connected to the gadget’s board. Take the #000 screwdriver and remove the 4 screws from the shield covering cables. Remove the shield aside.

Step 7. Take the spudger and remove the 3 cables that were located under the shield.

Step 8. Your display assembly can be now separated from the device.

Transfer Shields / Components from Old Assembly to New Assembly

Step 9. Use the #000 screwdriver to remove the screw that holds your Touch ID cable in the top right corner. Carefully set the metal guard aside along with this screw.

Step 10. Continue removing screws. The 2 are located above your Home button. You will set free a metal shield.

Step 11. Using spudger, pry up iPhone 5S Home button assembly. This is gentle work. Be careful with cables and take this assembly out.

Step 12. Repeat Steps 11-9 in reverse to place Home button and Touch ID cable to your new iPhone 5S screen.

Transfer Others Parts to Your New Screen

Step 13. You should unscrew 2 screws on the earpiece speaker and 1 small below them with #000 screwdriver. It will become possible to lift up a bit the bracket. Be gentle as the earpiece / bracket are help with clips that you have to carefully bend outwards.

Step 14. Gently pull camera assembly cable of its frame. Help yourself with the spudger to loosen the cable’s right side.

Step 15. Unscrew 4 screws on the heat shield’s side and remove this shield section with the front facing camera from your old broken display.

Step 16. Repeat steps 15-13 in reverse to place your camera / shield assembly from the broken display to the new iPhone 5S screen.

Re-assembling iPhone 5S

Step 17. You have almost finished the whole process of removing the broken display and installing the new one on your iPhone 5S. Follow steps 8-2 in reverse to carefully attach the new screen to your smartphone.

Step 18. Once your iPhone has been re-assembled you can turn it on. Does Apple logo appear? Congratulations! Well done!
