iPhone 5 Screen Repair – Easy.

iPhone 5 repair

Good news for all you iPhone repair Do-It-Yourself guys and gals. The iPhone 5 front glass should be really easy to replace.

How easy will it be to do an iPhone 5 repair?

Remember back to repairing the iPhone 3GS front glass where all you needed is a screwdriver and a suction cup? This is pretty much all you’ll need if your going to replace the front assembly on the iPhone 5. The iPhone 5 opens from front-to-back,  just like the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS. Replacing a cracked screen on an iPhone 5 is going to be easier than ever. That’s good news!

  1. I have been told that on the iPhone 5, you can’t JUST replace the front glass. You must replace the glass and digitizer. Is this correct? I had someone sell me the front glass only… Was I mislead?

  2. You are right. There is no way you can repair the iPhone with a glass only part. For the iPhone 5 in particular, you need the glass, digitizer, and LCD assembly as 1 whole unit.

  3. Hi,
    I recently purchased the LCD assembly from iphoneshopusa for my iphone 5 and it’s working (almost) perfectly. the screen stays on when i talk on the phone. for now i’m using an app that locks the screen (there IS an app for everything) but i’d like to know what if anything can be done to correct this problem.
    is the proximity sensor sandwiched between the glass and LCD?
    Did I do something wrong when i installed it or the is it possible that the replacement LCD was defective?
    Thank you in advance 🙂
