Can I Replace My iPhone Battery Myself?

If you love your iPhone, there is a good chance you have put the battery to the test. When the time between charges gets shorter and shorter or your phone seems to be slowing down, it may be time to replace the battery. However, iPhone batteries do not just “pop out” like many other cell phones. Replacing the battery is a little more challenging and requires the right tools and expertise.

To replace an iPhone battery, it is more than just popping off the back of the case of the phone. You need a battery removal kit to have the right tools to do the job. iPhones are glued and screwed together. You will need to carefully remove adhesive and screws to take out the battery and inset the new one. The problem is that if done incorrectly, you can break the adhesive and even damage the battery. Plus, on newer iPhones, you can lose the waterproofing once the glue is removed.

Bring Your iPhone to a Pro

While you can buy the kits to replace your own iPhone battery, it is worth it to have a professional do this job for you. It is not worth the risk of damaging your device to save a few bucks off a battery replacement service. Find a quality cell phone repair shop that specializes in iPhone repairs and bring your phone in for a battery replacement. These pros have the training and tools to do the repair right – make sure to ask if they warranty their services.

Some tasks are best left to the professionals. If you iPhone battery needs replacement, bring it to a local cell phone repair shop versus doing it yourself.
