iPhone 4S Battery Replacement

10 - 30 minutos

Moderate

Mi Problema

Water damage to phone, so battery discharged twice as fast than before.

Mi Solucion

Pretty OK aside from detaching the original battery from the glue strips. It's glued *really* hard, unlike in the iPhone 4, so pulling the plastic flap on the left will just ruin it without nudging the battery even a bit.

Mi Consejo

Really get the Plastic Opening Tools recommended in the guide! I suspect they'll prove really useful.

I forgot about them and had to struggle with a flat screwdriver head and several plastic knives to carefully pry the original battery out, as it was so heavily glued. Luckily, I managed to do it without piercing the battery at all, although it's fair to say, the battery's right edge had a completely different shape when I took it out :)

After removing the original, unpeel most of the glue strips (use nails to slowly unroll from one side, then try to grab with 2 fingers and pull) so that you never have to go through that process again.
