Introducción

Utiliza esta guía para aplicar correctamente el adhesivo del borde de la pantalla de su iPhone después de una reparación. Reemplazar el adhesivo puede ayudar a mantener la resistencia al agua de su iPhone. Las tiras adhesivas precortadas son muy delicadas y se dañan fácilmente si no se aplican correctamente, por lo que es posible que desee tener un repuesto a mano si sigue esta guía por primera vez.

Asegúrate de comprar un adhesivo que coincida con el color de su pantalla para mantener el aspecto original del teléfono.

Este procedimiento se aplica a todos los modelos iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus, X, XS, XS Max y SE 2020. (Los modelos anteriores no utilizan adhesivo de pantalla).

Antes de empezar, ya deberías haber retirado el ensamblaje de la pantalla de su iPhone y abierto de lado. Las instrucciones detalladas para quitar la pantalla para cada modelo se pueden encontrar en los siguientes enlaces:

    Its crucial to get this done properly, otherwise the glue strip doesn’t sit properly. After thoroughly picking with a spudger, I cleaned up the remainder with a q-tip and brake cleaner.

    Small strips of good duct tape can be very useful for removing the remaining adhesive as well as any dirt left behind. Just cut narrow strips and press them firmly into the channel where the adhesive was, then peel away the tape along with any foreign material.

    This is important. About half of my old adhesive stuck to the display. Be sure to look under the clips at the top that hold the screen in place. Adhesive there may make it difficult to properly align the screen.

    I used an Isopropyl alcohol patch from a first aid kit.

    Joe Teichert - Contestar

    I used a pre-moistened isopropyl cleaning wipe for eyeglasses, works great and cheap too. Heed the advice to only go in one direction as well - that adhesive will just get pushed all over if you don’t.

    anpav - Contestar

    The video shows using a Q-tip with Isopropyl. Don’t use a Q-tip, the cotton will just stick to the remaining adhesive and make it hairy. An eyeglasses cleaning cloth moistened with acetone did the trick for me. Don’t get it drippy wet with the acetone, it may attack some plastics.

    bradiac - Contestar

    not only hairy, it will spread isopropyl everywhere. i ruined my display because the iso got under the glas of the display and attacked the screen adhesive between glas and lcd. now i got 2-3 spots where you can see that. it still works but it’s not perfect anymore.

    butch coolidge -

    who the heck has isopropyl alcohol lying around to use

    charlie B - Contestar

    I guess everybody’s situation is a little different, but I’ve always kept some in the medicine cabinet. You can get a bottle at any drugstore for a buck or two; also many/most hardware stores. Look for the highest concentration you can get—anything over 90% works great!

    Jeff Suovanen -

    My wife handed me some of her Nail Prep & Polish Wipe = Isopropyl Alcohol :-D

    Chris Brobin - Contestar

    careful with the isopropyl alcohol, some went under the screen and now the LCD looks weird

    Paul Richard - Contestar

    For this finishing step I tried iFixit’s Adhesive Cleanup Kit. The first pad of the kit, the Adhesive Tape Remover Pad, is soaked with a slippery solution that did an incredible job of cleaning residuals of glue and dirt. May I have to redo this repair, I would put less effort at the previous steps, relying on this pad instead, hopefully saving a lot of time.

    This slippery solution doesn’t seem to evaporate. Obviously it needed to be cleaned if the new adhesive was intended to stick. That’s the role of the second pad, saturated with 70% IPA. Caution with the fluff that detaches from this pad, however.

    Saw in a different persons YouTube video the battery connector was causing a problem with the film because its disconnected and up, they cut a small slit in the film, Might test laying the film hold the adhesive on the phone before starting and see if thats a problem depending on phone and adhesive. Never hurt to check

    I cut a strip of backing film and placed it under the battery connector, then manipulated it’s ribbon to make it lay flat.

    Make sure you peel the underside down, the adhesive kit for the iPhone 8 looks different.

    Also, study the instructions and photos here carefully before proceeding.

  6. Antes de aplicar el adhesivo, asegúrate de que el conector de la batería de tu iPhone esté plano para que no presione contra el revestimiento de liberación azul. Está bien volver a conectar temporalmente la batería si es necesario; solo asegúrate de desconectarla nuevamente antes de instalar la pantalla. Alínea cuidadosamente el borde inferior de la tira adhesiva con el borde inferior de la carcasa de su iPhone. Una vez que el adhesivo se quede pegado en su lugar, no puedes volver a despegarlo; tendrás que retirarlo y volver a empezar con un nuevo adhesivo.

    The three pictures show him peeling the adhesive backing away as he lays the adhisive in the phone. I found it easier to peel the whole backing away and then very carefully align the whole adhesive before gently pressing any of it in place. This way, you can be sure it will line up perfectly and avoid having to redo it.

    Joe Teichert - Contestar

    Props to Dwayn Draper for his above comment above. I see no way to do this step without either pressing the battery connector down (which would energize the logic board and perhaps be bad), or cutting a hole in the adhesive backing to accommodate the battery connector while it sticks up. I laid the whole blue thing over the phone and used a sharpie to mark where the connector stuck up. Then I used a sharp pair of scissors to cut out the marked part of the backing. This allowed the adhesive to line up nicely around the edges of the phone.

    Joe Teichert - Contestar

    I tried peeling off the whole backing like the comment above suggested and I completely messed up this part. thinking about this next time i would align it first with the backing on, then carefully peel it back, similar to how this ifixit article directs.

    Radd Guarin - Contestar

    i destroyed the seal immediately cause of my thumbs not being in the right spot as i tried to peel the protector back a bit… more of a personal error, everything else in my build was easy peasy… i wish it was a bit clearer on the seal where to start from, the picture shown and the protective backing on my seal was slightly different so i wasnt sure if i was starting from the correct side to start peeling away and think that may have led to my error as well…. hopefully i can remember mine isnt waterproof anymore and ill try to replace it again next time something goes wrong on this phone

    douglas - Contestar

    Before exposing the adhesive, test fit the packet to see which way it orients. There was several cutouts on mine for the various components which protrude above the perimeter. The adhesive looked pretty symmetrical, but the backing only went one way.

    bradiac - Contestar

    This was definitely the most harrowing part of the battery replacement process.

    Anthony - Contestar

    This step needs to be done before you mount the battery, if this is the reason why you open your iPhone. The battery connector points up and makes the blue film to curve up and not align properly with the edges of the phone. I know, small details, but this is making the job even harder than already is. Maybe a cut out in the blue film, for that area, would have been useful.

    redishman - Contestar

    Booth strips i had with batteries was just top edge too short :(

    Arnolds Balins - Contestar

    Peeled off the first sheet, aligned, and then placed. I used one of the existing holes to make a cutout for the battery connector (since I had already inserted the battery when the other guide indicated the adhesive should be placed). Used two sets of tweezers gripping inside the holes to carefully align and place.

    Nicholas Anchor - Contestar

    It was OK to re-connect the battery temporarily rather than slicing holes in the plastic. Just be sure to disconnect it again before reconnecting the display.

    Also, I lined up what I thought was the bottom correctly, only to have the top fall short. Looking back, I should have put the plastic sheet entirely within the phone, and not have it overlapping the edge. With an extra pair of hands, we were able to fix the top edge somewhat, but I had placed the plastic about 1mm too low.

    Mark - Contestar

    Instead of peeling off the backing progressively, I found it safer to cut the bottom part of it with scissors, so that about 1 cm height of adhesive was exposed. This way, the sheet laid FLAT over the iPhone frame and could be centered accurately. Once precisely centered, I held the sheet in place with one hand, and with the other hand took the spudger and pressed down the bottom part of the sheet, to actually stick the adhesive to the frame. Then peeled off the rest of the backing as the pictures show.

    Aubin - Contestar

    Great tip from Aubin. Cut 1-2 cm of the first or big tape (foil), on the Bottom of the phone. Then without pressing: first go to the Top of the phone and align and hold. Then check the Bottom for correct alignment, and start pressing the Bottom of the adhesive, and then peeling the big foil towards the Top, and then pressing the rest of the adhesive.

    Renout v Oijen - Contestar

    Aubin has the best tip for this. trying to peel back the large backing piece bends and curls the whole thing such that it’s impossible to align properly. Once you get it aligned, press down on the bottom exposed piece and then you can remove the backing, and it falls neatly into place.

    Manuka - Contestar

    I removed the obvious bits of old seal with the spudger then just used a microfibre cloth and lighter fluid to remove the rest. I have used lighter fluid for any adhesive residue type job for 30+ years and never had a problem. It doesn’t attack any kind of plastic EVER plus, it hangs around for longer than IPA which is also a bonus. With regard to the battery connector, not sure if the problem is common in models other than the 7? The connector on mine was well under the level of where the backing sheet would span the width of the phone as I applied the seal?

    Guadalo - Contestar

    Also, when applying the seal, make sure you pull the backing away straight, not at an angle like you see in the pics below. I tried that way and it started to ‘steer’ the seal sideways and over the edge of the relief. Pull the backing away keeping it parallel with the phone and the seal should follow it. After a few attempts at positioning the very bottom edge of the seal to start with I managed to apply the whole thing perfectly first attempt. Careful with that initial positioning though as the seal is so sticky it almost feels magnetic!

    Guadalo - Contestar

    I’ve done multiple iphone repairs and I ALWAYS find this the hardest part of the whole process. In fact, I awlays buy an extra adhsive pice for each repair because I mess this up and have to redo it about half the time.

    r torrance andrews - Contestar

    The adhesive comes sandwiched between two sheets of blue release liner, one slightly larger than the other. When you peel them apart, the adhesive is meant to stick to the small sheet, which you then apply to your iPhone. In my case, when I peeled the two sheets apart, the adhesive stuck to the large sheet, making it impossible to apply. I don't think it was anything I did wrong - probably just a fault in the manufacturing process. I will try reassembling it without the adhesive, or possibly using a liquid adhesive like B-7000.

  7. Continúa removiendo la parte posterior de el adhesivo, con cuidado presionando el adhesivo en su lugar desde la parte inferior de tu IPhone hasta la parte superior. Si has alineado correctamente el borde inferior del adhesivo, el lado y el borde superior caerán perfectamente en su lugar. Si el adhesivo esta desalineado, remuévelo y reinténtalo nuevamente con un adhesivo nuevo. Si no tienes cerca otro set de adhesivo, esta bien reensamblar tu IPhone temporalmente y usarlo normalmente sin ningún adhesivo. Solo ten en cuenta que la resistencia al agua de tu IPhone estará comprometida hasta que reemplaces el adhesivo.

    Press hard. Some of the adhesive came off the phone as I was peeling the backing away in the step 11. You want to make sure it stuck on the phone so it doesn’t stay attached to the backing.

    Joe Teichert - Contestar

    I’d recommend resting the tip of your spudger against the vertical notch of the edge and press down rather with the side of the tip, just so your hand doesn’t slip inwards causing the nearest bit of glue to unstick.

    Make sure you pull the tab as close to the phone as possible, parallel to the phone. This should lower the probability of the adhesive in the corner separating from the frame. Do NOT pull up and away from the frame!

    If it does separate, just put it back and press it firmly in with the spudger and try again.

    My iPhone 6s Plus kit did not have the thin strip of release liners but worked fine.

    sputterer1 - Contestar

    The release liners either stuck to the main backing as I pulled it off, or it pulled the adhesive itself away from the phone! Be very careful, or you’ll have a sticky mess trying to get the adhesive back in place.

    Joe Teichert - Contestar

    The iphone 6s does not have this thin film so when I was attaching the screen I ruined my adhesive. Not sure why this one is different but it definitely makes things more challenging.

    Brett Gragg - Contestar

    Same here. I ended up placing a wide strip cut from the front adhesive liner across the top end where the display cables attach, as well as placing the rear adhesive liner crossways over the phones mid section to help keep from touching and/or damaging the adhesive during reassembly.

    bradiac - Contestar

    La même chose pour moi, le kit pour changement de batterie 6S n’avait pas la fine pellicule à enlever juste avant l’assemblage final.

    Ainsi comme montrer dans la vidéo, il est important de tester son écran avant l’assemblage final : il n’était donc pas très simple sans cette pellicule de ne pas toucher l’adhésif en reliant les nappes et en faisant le test.

    Mais tant mieux tout s’est bien déroulé ! Merci pour vos tutos !!

    We were initially disappointed when the test power-on failed. I tried reconnecting the battery, but it felt no different than the first time. Luckily, one of us thought of recharging the new battery, which proved to be the problem.

    I think I can’t find the answer to my issue, my iPhone 6S has a weird problem with the display, where in my phone, where the screen connects to the base of the phone, the part you're putting into the phone in this step, is split into 2 from adhesive degradation and my phone is a ticking timebomb to the end of its life.

    • Usando un secador de pelo o pistola de calor, calienta uniformemente los costados del IPhone hasta que estén lo suficientemente calientes para tocarlos. El calor ayudara al adhesivo a realizar un sellado mas completo. No sobre calientes el IPhone, o puedes causar que la batería explote o dañar otros componentes sensibles al calor como el display.

    What happens if I skip this step of heating the phone and just placing some heavy books on my iPhone 6s? I have this question because I don’t own neither a heat gun nor a hair dryer. Pls help

    Sreeram ASRK - Contestar

    Your phone will work fine. This step is more about getting the adhesive to bond securely to help create a waterproof seal. If you don’t have any way to heat it, using more weight and leaving it there for a longer period of time may help.

    Thank you so much for the advice on this and the suggestion of heating coins and using books. I did as suggested and three weeks later my phone was knocked into a bath of water. It had a mophie case around it which helped bit I immediately fished out the phone, turned it off and dried it. Tapped out water in ports, removed the SIM card and then placed in front of a fan to dry put for 24 hours. I wanted to wait longer but I needed my phone for a long trip so prayed and turned it on. It was fine. Nothing wrong with it abs I can only thank you foe your suggestions to improve the seal that made the difference.

    Instead of using a heat gun/hair dryer (I do not have one) — I used the coins trick, and put a kettle on top that I filled with hot water. I used water at around 80ºC. The weight of the kettle also provides additional pressure, making sure you get a good seal. To cool it down, simply add some additional cold water to the kettle.

    Very good tutorial but why this last step ?

    skrolikowski - Contestar

    Seems like a better idea to move reinstallation of the pentalobe screws to Step 21 or immediately after it.

    Two problems:

    1) The adhesive for the bottom of the phone has a tiny extra lip. My first attempt was to line up the corners rather than the middle. This resulted in the adhesive being be a bit short at the top.

    2) During the final assembly, I could not get the phone to close. Double bad. I tried to peel up the screen to realign and tore one of the screen’s ribbon cables! I just received my second screen and adhesive today.

    I believe these two areas could be easily added to the above instructions. Everything else went fine.

    Ifixit please sell and release the adhesive for samsung s9+ to restore my water resistance after battery replacement.

    cutterpillowm - Contestar

    They couldn’t care less about Samsung phones, they are like most apple biased company ever.

    Dinan Blueje -

    Thank you very much ifixit for this guide!. I replaced the adhesive on an used iphone 8 i bought, followed every step very carefully and now the screen seals perfectly with the frame.

    Luis Alfredo - Contestar

    Can you use iPhone 12 without the adhesive?

I just bought few iPhone 7 adhesives from my supplier, and I noticed that the adhesive is not really fitting on the frame.

The iFixit shop pictures show us the iPhone 7 Plus adhesive for black color and the iPhone 7 adhesive for white color.

The iPhone 7 Plus seems to be more precise and correct than the iPhone 7 one : the iPhone 7 Plus one respect the screw hole at upper left corner for example, but the iPhone 7 one doesn’t, it has extra curves (same as iPhone 6s lower left corner) and it doesn’t take up the full width of the frame edge.

Can anyone show us the shape of an original adhesive from a brand new iPhone 7 to compare ?

Martial B - Contestar

This was the trickiest part of my screen replacement. Slim double sided adhesives always intimidate me because you only get one chance to line it up. I succeeded on my first attempt by following this guide and taking my time to line up the first edge as best as I could. The sides are the hardest part as they are very thin and I almost failed getting them lined up. Luckily I hadn’t pressed them down and was able to correct my alignment. Good preperation of the phone by removing the old adhesive completely and cleaning the area is my number one recommendation.

Nathan Stark - Contestar

Adhesive makes everything harder. I chose to replace the adheasive on my 6s plus during a battery replacement, and it was easily the hardest part. No fault of Ifixit or this guide… the instructions above are spot on. But the cleaning of the adheasive takes forever, easily tripled my total repair time. And its really, really nerve racking to place the new adheasive. I do stuff like that all the time, but this was nuts. The strips are so tiny and delicate! Be really, really careful and take your time. This earns its “moderate” difficulty and then some.

Corban Young - Contestar

wow that was hard to get in place. clean the edges well and use isopropyl alcohol. also practice a lot before removing the cover protection.

ericrose62 - Contestar

i did it. i did the last step before using the books..

pantelg95 - Contestar

After doing this step, is it still waterproof?

M. Refeir Yudio Ikhwanudin - Contestar

As long as the adhesive is not damaged at ANY point during installation then yes it will be waterproof.

David Sladdin - Contestar

Thank you! Went better than expected on my 6s.

Gagerminnix - Contestar

Used a tooth pick and soft tooth brush to clean around the edges and then Is-propyl alcohol to finish before the seal. Ready :)

William Hudson - Contestar

I totally failed this haha, had to remove some of the new adhesive to be able to put my screen back on the iphone. It holds now but %#*@ that was the longest part...

Casano Matthieu - Contestar

Do you have to change it when only changing the battery to keep it being waterproof?

dajonny - Contestar

Yes. Technically speaking, it’s your phone you don’t have to do anything you don’t want to. But it is strongly recommended as it’ll restore the dirt/dust proof resistance.

Matt -

Hi there,

I was wondering, is it okay to replace the screen without replacing the adhesive, will the screen fall off in and places or anything.

Basically i’m asking is it a requirement to replace the adhesive when replacing the screen?

Thank you~

Roberto Bombeeto - Contestar

@thymother Not required at all; screws and brackets secure the display, and it’s in no danger of falling out regardless of whether the adhesive is there or not. The adhesive seems to be more for a little extra cushioning during hard-presses and as a dust/water seal.

Jeff Suovanen -

Took me two attempts, luckily I did both screen and battery at the same time, had two screen adhesives and the second one I nailed. 10/10 guide, just take your time.

Alex Bouchard - Contestar

First iPhone screen replacement a breeze just had to be very attentive. Adhesive install you have to take it nice and easy.

Jeffrey Liangjokechai - Contestar

Hi there,

How do you choose the colour of the display assembly adhesive for the IPhone 6S Plus?

bobby li - Contestar

The adhesive color doesn't matter, unless you're concerned about keeping up appearances. In that case opposites attract. Black LCD = White ADH.

Matt -

Thanks Jeff! worked a treat

Kola - Contestar

Oh and cutting a small hole in the backing for the battery connector was a genius idea!

Kola - Contestar

It was better for me to start with one of sides less control issues. deltakilo

david koval - Contestar

Used this as a guide to replace the LCD and digitizer in Motorola Droid Mini (XT1030). Main difference is that the screen is not held in by screws, only adhesives. Sat the phone face down on a paper towel with books on it, while on a 3d printer bed heated to 80 degrees C, for total of about 20 minutes (IR thermometer measured screen/frame at around 65C). Will see how well this holds up…

rbol - Contestar

I would pay extra for a kit that includes an alignment jig for each specific phone type. You only get ONE shot to get the alignment of the adhesive correct, and I’ve never managed to do it.

Either that, or sell the replacement displays with the adhesive already attached to the back of the display assembly so all I have to do is swap over the home button, attach my cables, peel off the protective cover over the adhesive, and just lay it down.

Rocky Carr - Contestar

You should add a note that getting isopropyl in the screen will permanently ruin it. Don’t ask me how I know.

Justin Howlett - Contestar

Even a brand new phone, sides tend to unstick causing slightly raised bezels. I used a hairdryer and a lot of pressure to reseat the edge. Seems flush and uniform without any lifting

jerry123456789101112 - Contestar

I had to open my iPhone 7 up just to replace a loose screw (I could hear it vibrating next to the taptic engine), and this was the trickiest part. Working with double sided adhesives like this isn’t easy. Best tips would be to clean the old adhesive off really really well, use isopropyl alcohol, and take your time practicing before you remove the cover protection.

Also, don’t remove the last layer of cover protection until after you’ve reconnected the display and verified it’s working. Don’t want to accidentally touch the adhesive while you’re reconnecting the display.

Happy fixing

Jake Wynn - Contestar

Everything went very well in replacing the screen on my Apple 8plus…except now the phone won’t accept a charge. I was very careful in all the tasks. I did accidentally let the battery connector make contact while installing the display. What might be the reason the phone is not taking a charge and is there a fix for it? TIA

Timothy Bonham - Contestar

This helped me to replace my waterproof seal when I replaced my iphone XR screen. Thank you for posting this.

Kyle Closner - Contestar

I had troubles removing leftover adhesive (this took me about an hour) - isopropyl alcohol didn’t work well, so I used rubbing alcohol (Benzinum medicinale) which is also being used to remove band aid glue from skin, etc.. It worked, but I cannot recommend it, as I don’t know whether it will attack the surfaces or do some other damage. YOLO

Wilk Polarny - Contestar

La benzine médicale est un dérivé d’hydrocarbure (alkanes) il est donc possible qu’il attaque les caoutchoucs et surfaces similaires. La concentration de l’alcool joue grandement sur son efficacité comme solvant, et il est donc conseillé d’utilisé un alcool à 90° (l’alcool isopropylique est courament à 70° dans le commerce)

Cajuteq -

Translation to English of Cajuteq's comment

"Medical gasoline is a derivative of hydrocarbons (alkanes) so it may attack rubbers and similar surfaces. The concentration of alcohol greatly affects its effectiveness as a solvent, and it is therefore advisable to use 90° alcohol (isopropyl alcohol is commonly 70° on the market)"

I'm wondering if this contributor means what in English we call "Benzene" That has been used in the past to remove sticking plaster residue. Benzene is indeed a hydrocarbon but it is an aromatic hydrocarbon(the simplest, most basic, and basis of the aromatic hydrocarbons) and not an alkane

Je me demande si ce contributeur veut dire ce que nous appelons en anglais "Benzene" qui a été utilisé dans le passé pour éliminer les résidus de plâtre collant. Le benzène est bien un hydrocarbure mais c'est un hydrocarbure aromatique (le plus simple, le plus basique et la base des hydrocarbures aromatiques) et non un alcane

Peter Kershaw -

Cleaning off the old adhesive is important to allow new one to be seated properly. Done it twice now. Heat and alcohol is the answer.

Kevin McNamara - Contestar

this process is always the hardest and least forgiving part of every repair I do. I would estimate that I waste the adhesive and need to get a new one about 50% of the time. Seriously—can’t we come up with a better procees?

robert andrews - Contestar

Definitely the trickiest part of any iPhone repair, but this guide helped a lot! I definitely recommend having a bright light over your work area, and perhaps even a magnifying lens to help see better and get this just right.

Nick - Contestar
