Use this guide to correctly apply replacement adhesive under your iPhone's display after a repair. Replacing the adhesive can help maintain your iPhone's water resistance. The pre-cut adhesive strips are very delicate and are easily damaged if not applied correctly, so you may want to have a spare on hand if following this guide for the first time.
Be sure you purchase adhesive that matches the color of your display to maintain the original look of the phone.
This procedure applies to all iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus, X, XS, and XS Max models. (Prior models did not use display adhesive.)
Before you begin, you should have already removed your iPhone's display assembly and set it aside. Detailed instructions for each model can be found at the following links:

Paso 1 — Display Adhesive ¶
Begin by removing all the old display adhesive around the perimeter of your iPhone's case.
Paso 2 ¶
Use the tip of your spudger to remove any remaining smaller bits of adhesive.
Paso 3 ¶
If you're reinstalling your existing display rather than replacing it with a new one, be sure to remove any remaining adhesive from the back of your display as well.
Paso 4 ¶
Using a lint-free cloth (or coffee filter) with a bit of isopropyl alcohol, clean the areas of the case and rear display where you removed the old adhesive.
For best results, swipe your cleaning cloth in one direction, not back and forth.
Paso 5 ¶
Begin peeling the backing from your replacement adhesive, starting with the large tab on the bottom edge.
Don't completely separate the backing yet.
Paso 6 ¶
Carefully align the exposed lower edge of the adhesive strip with the bottom edge of your iPhone's case.
When it's correctly aligned, gently press the exposed lower adhesive strip into place.
Paso 7 ¶
Continue peeling away the backing from the adhesive, gently pressing the adhesive into place from the bottom of your iPhone to the top.
Paso 8 ¶
Finish separating the adhesive backing and discard it.
Paso 9 ¶
Use the tip of a spudger to press all the adhesive into place around the entire perimeter of your iPhone.
Paso 10 ¶
Use the flat edge of your spudger to press the adhesive into place at all four corners of your iPhone.
Paso 11 ¶
Grab the small pull tab (located at one of the corners) and peel off the large front liner from the adhesive.
Paso 12 ¶
Completely separate the front adhesive liner(s) and discard it.
Paso 13 ¶
Refer to your iPhone's display replacement guide in order to:
Reconnect all display cables
Reconnect the battery
Reinstall the cable connector cover brackets, and secure their screws.
Paso 14 ¶
iPhone 7 / 7 Plus only: Before installing your display, check the condition of the black gaskets on the two small screw bosses on the bottom edge of your display, near the home button.
If the gaskets are misaligned, use tweezers to carefully recenter them.
Paso 15 ¶
While supporting the display, use tweezers to begin peeling off the final release liners, exposing the adhesive.
Paso 16 ¶
Continue removing the release liner from the entire perimeter of the iPhone.
Paso 17 ¶
Paso 18 ¶
Hold the display out of the way as you remove the final piece of release liner.
Paso 19 ¶
Carefully align the top edge of the display with the top edge of the phone body.
Position the display so that the tabs along the top edge fit into place just underneath the top edge of the iPhone's case.
Paso 20 ¶
Before closing up the display, check to make sure that all cables are clear.
Paso 21 ¶
As you lower the display into place, apply gentle pressure against the display's bottom edge so that the top edge stays flush with the top edge of the iPhone.
Press on the sides of the display near the top of the iPhone, and work your way down to click the display into place.
Paso 22 ¶
You can use coins of any denomination, so long as they are as thick or slightly thicker than the camera bump.
Place a coin at each corner of your iPhone, and place two coins on either side of the camera bump.
Place additional coins around the entire perimeter of your iPhone.
Using a hair dryer or heat gun, evenly heat the side edges all the way around the iPhone until they are slightly too hot to touch. The heat will help the adhesive form a more complete bond. Don't overheat the iPhone, or you may cause the battery to ignite or damage other heat-sensitive components, like the display.
Paso 23 ¶
While the iPhone is still hot, grab at least four or five of your heaviest hardcover books, and place them squarely on top of your iPhone.
Leave the books in place for about thirty minutes.
Paso 24 ¶
Remove the books and use your fingers to press firmly on all four corners of the display.
Press for about 3 seconds and then release.
