Replacing the glass on the iPhone 5S with your own hands -a process that interests many owners of apple-phones. The point here is the high cost of the operation, as several thousand rubles are charged for it in the service centers. Why is it so important to change the damaged glass? Replacement of protective glass on iPhone 5S will be required in order to protect the internal elements of the device. If cracks appear on the screen, the risk of damage to the hardware increases.
What do we need?

It should be bought in specializedstores. It's about the salons of communication. Yes, variants with online auctions are not excluded, but is it necessary to risk quality in order to purchase this component with a penny discount? Hardly. Especially in the case of an iPhone. To remove the adhesive, a solvent is required. The napkin is useful for removing the stains that remain on the glass. Removing the fragments will need to be some pointed plastic object. In principle, you can use a screwdriver for this.
Can I save time?
Replacement shell and glass iPhone 5S, as it wasmentioned earlier, is a painstaking procedure and time-consuming. But it can be shortened.

For this purpose, the table is ideal, for example. The surface can also be covered with a dense cloth. This will help reduce the phone's slip. An additional bonus is good lighting.
Step one. Releasing the module
Repair iPhone 5S (replacement of glass in our case)will not do without such an event, as the release from under the frame of a kind of "hostage" - a module of the screen. To do this, unscrew the end screws located at the bottom of the phone. There should be two. You can see the location at the edges of the connector. On the protective glass we install the suction cup-puller. You should position it closer to the Home key. With a little effort, pull the ring, which is on the front of the device. It is important not to use excessive force here. Between a glass and the bottom part of a frame of the case it is necessary to push through a thin subject accurately. As soon as we notice the line of separation, the sucker retraction should be intensified. At the same time, the outgoing glass should be tapped with unsharp movements using, for example, a plastic card.
At this stage, you should be very careful,because most users fail here. The consequences can be very deplorable, since an unfortunate repairman can easily tear the sensor connection cable. And it, in turn, is integrated into the Home key. Replacing the iPhone 5S screen glass has some characteristic features. During the step it is necessary to unfasten the connector of the biological sensor. It is connected to the motherboard. Smoothly remove the module, or rather its lower part, so that the upper edge remains at the place where it was before.
Step two. Dismantle the block
The replacement of glass on the iPhone 5S will requireunwinding additional screws. They are twisted in the upper right corner, there are four of them. With these screws, a protective cover is held in place. Withdrawing this part, you can find contact pads, designed to connect certain loops. We must dismantle this module. To do this, carefully disconnect the connection connectors (there will be three of them) from the phone card. If everything is done neatly, then we can assume that the dismantling of the block was successful.
Step three. Install the "new thing"
At this stage, the replacement of glass on iPhone5S. Before fixing a new component, it should be equipped. We transfer the microphone to the new module, as well as a connecting cable for it. There will still be a light sensor and a front camera device. The metal frame and the Home key are removed for a while. Connect the connecting elements to their connectors. Top the protective screen. We fix it with the help of the four screws that we had previously twisted. We put the frame back into its frame. However, fixing is done from top to bottom. Already at the very bottom, tighten the end screws for the final fastening of the screen module. Everything, the replacement of glass on the iPhone 5S is complete.
Remember the precautionary measures

It will cost more money than other modules, but it will justify the money spent.
The design feature of the screen module ispaired liquid crystal components, a protective glass and a sensor element that are integrated into one single system. If partitions are necessary, special equipment can be used to neutralize the adhesive. If it does not exist, then it is unlikely to accomplish anything sensible. At least, without prejudice to the component.
This "technical sandwich" neatlySeparate with the help of only improvised home remedies can not. The separation process is a laborious sequence of actions. However, there is one loophole. This is an experience. If a user has already dealt with such things before, he must certainly know what can be done to separate the system into parts. Otherwise, you have to leave it as it is.
