How to Remove iPhone 11 Pro Screen for Replacement

If the screen on your iPhone 11 Pro is cracked, not reacting to touch, or not showing an image when the iPhone 11 pro screen is turned on, follow this guide to replace the screen, also known as the display assembly or you can also visit our mobile repair store in Bondi Beach for reliable services.

Because the factory pairs the combination earpiece speaker + sensor component fastened to the back of the display with your specific iPhone, you must transfer it from your old display to your new one during any display replacement. It houses the flood illuminator, which is part of the Face ID biometric security function. Face ID will stop working if it is damaged or replaced, so take great care not to harm any of these components throughout this procedure. Face ID may only be restored by Apple or an Apple-authorized specialist in Bondi Beach if it is damaged.

Even when utilizing an original screen, True Tone capability is deactivated following a 11 pro screen replacement. Additionally, your iPhone may display a warning concerning the display’s “genuineness” for a short time.

Step by Step Guide for iPhone 11 Pro Screen Replacement

iPhone 11 pro screen replacement get it fixt

Step 1: Remove the Pentalobe Screws   

-Before you begin, discharge your iPhone 11 battery below 25%. A charged lithium-ion battery can catch fire and/or explode if accidentally punctured.

-Power off your iPhone before beginning disassembly.

-Remove the two 6.7 mm-long pentalobe screws at the bottom edge of the iPhone.

-Opening the iPhone 11 pro screen display will compromise its waterproof seals. Have replacement seals ready before you proceed past this step, or take care to avoid liquid exposure if you reassemble your iPhone without replacing the seals.

Step 2: Tape Over any Cracks   

-If your iPhone 11 pro screen has cracked, keep further breakage contained and prevent bodily harm during your repair by taping over the glass.

-Lay overlapping strips of packing tape over the iPhone’s display until the whole face is covered.

-This will keep glass shards contained and provide structural integrity when prying and lifting the display.

-Wear safety glasses to protect your eyes from any glass shaken free during the 11 pro screen replacement.

-If the broken glass makes it difficult to get a suction cup to stick in the next few steps, try folding a strong piece of tape (such as duct tape) into a handle and lifting the display with that instead.

Step 3: Heat the Lower Edge of the Phone   

-Heating the iPhone’s lower edge softens the adhesive that holds the display in place, making it easier to open.

-To soften the glue underneath the iPhone, use a hairdryer or heat gun, or prepare an iOpener and place it on the lower edge for about a minute.

Step 4: Apply Suction Cup(s)    

-The iSclack, a handy tool that we recommend for anyone who does frequent iPhone 11 pro screen repair, is demonstrated in the next two steps. If you don’t want to use the iSclack, go down two steps for another option.

-Remove the plastic depth gauge from the iSclack’s centre now; it’s not needed for larger iPhones like the iPhone 11 Pro.

-Place one suction cup on the front and one on the rear of the iPhone towards the bottom border.

-Firmly press both suction cups into position.

-If your iPhone 11 pro screen display or back glass is badly damaged, a layer of clear packing tape on top of it might assist the suction cups stick. Two pieces of tape are included with the iSclack for this purpose.

Step 5: Separate the Screen from Backshell           

-Hold your iPhone firmly in your hand and close the iSclack’s handle to slightly separate the screen from the phone’s backshell.

-Don’t try to totally split the screen; all you need is a small gap around the bottom edge.

-Insert an opening pick into the gap beneath the display on the iPhone’s lower edge.

Step 6:Place a Single Suction Handle along the Bottom Border   

-Apply a single suction handle to the bottom edge of the phone, avoiding the curved section of the glass, if you’re using one.

-If your iPhone 11 pro screen display is significantly damaged, a layer of clear packing tape over it may help the suction cup stick. Instead of using the suction cup, very strong tape might be utilized. You can superglue the suction cup to the broken screen if all else fails.

Step 7: Lift the Display Slightly              

-To create a little gap between the front panel and the back case, pull up on the suction cup with firm, consistent pressure.

-Fill the gap with an opening pick.

-The waterproof adhesive that holds the display in place is extremely strong, and it takes a lot of force to create this initial gap. If you’re having trouble opening a gap, add more heat to the screen and gently move it up and down to loosen the adhesive until you can enter your tool.

Step 8: Separate the Screen Adhesive            

-Slicing through the adhesive keeping the display in place, slide the opening pick around the lower-left corner and up the left edge of the iPhone.

-If you push the opening pick too far into the iPhone, internal components may be damaged.

Step 9: Re insert the Pick                

To continue detaching the glue, re-insert your pick at the bottom edge of the iPhone pro screen and slide it up the right side.

If you insert the pick too far, the display wires on this side of the iPhone may be damaged. Only a few millimetres, or roughly the width of the display bezel, should be inserted.

Step 10:  Time to Move the Display           

-Both glue and clips are used to fix the display’s top edge.

-Gently move the display’s right edge down slightly (in the direction of the Lightning port).

-Place your selection on the phone’s top-right corner.

Step 11:  Lower the Display    

-Pull the display down as needed (towards the Lightning port) to create a gap large enough for the pick.

-Slide the pick to the top left corner of the display and cut any leftover glue.

-If you insert the pick more than a few millimetres into the front panel sensor array—roughly the width of the display bezel—you risk damaging it.

Step 12: Remove the Suction Cup(s)                  

-Pull-on the small nub on the suction cup to remove it from the front panel.

-If you used an iSclack and it’s still affixed to the iPhone, remove it now.

Step 13: Open the iPhone               

-Swing the display up from the left side to open the iPhone 11 pro screen, just like a book’s back cover.

-Don’t try to completely disconnect the display from the iPhone’s logic board while 11 pro screen replacement just yet, as it’s still connected to the logic board by multiple fragile ribbon cables.

-While you’re on the phone, lean the display against something to keep it propped up.

-Lay the display in place during reassembly, line the clips along the top edge, and gently press the top edge into place before snapping the rest of the display into place. Check the condition of the clips around the perimeter of the display and make sure they aren’t bent if it doesn’t click readily into place.

Step 14: Unscrew the Battery Connector Cover            

-Remove the battery cover bracket’s two 1.3 mm long Y000 screws.

-To avoid hurting your iphone 11 pro screen repair, keep track of each screw during the repair and make sure it goes back precisely where it came from.

-This is an excellent time to turn on your iPhone and verify all functions before you seal the display in place during reassembly. Before you continue working, make sure your iPhone is totally turned off.

Step 15: Remove the Battery Connector Cover                 

Remove the bracket.

Step 16: Remove the Battery.               

-Pry the battery connector up from its socket on the logic board with a spudger or a clean fingernail.

-Make sure the black silicone seal that surrounds this and other board connectors isn’t damaged. These seals give further resistance to water and dust entry.

-To prevent the connector from accidentally making contact with the socket and delivering power to the phone during your repair, bend it slightly away from the logic board.

Step 17: Unscrew the Logic Board Cover Screws           

Use a Y000 driver to remove six 1.3 mm screws securing the logic board cover bracket.
