IPhone looks less flimsy than other mobile phones, why? Because it consists of two solidpieces of plastic and metal with a thick screen. But when you drop your iPhoneon the ground, you may see what’s really made of it…If the screen cracks orsomething inside the iPhone cover is damaged, you can do something withyourself instead of sending it back to Apple or paying somebody to check it out.

Things You Need:

Flat-head screwdriver (small size)

1. First to turn off the iPhone.

2. Find the SIM card which on the top of the iPhone. Theninsert the end of a paperclip into the release button to eject it from theiPhone. Now pull the SIM card holder with the card out of the phone.

3. Use the flat-head screwdriver to pry apart the antennacover at the bottom of the iPhone. Then take it off the iPhone.

4. Pry apart the back cover by guiding the screwdriveralong the separating line between the front and back covers of the iPhone. Whenthe back cover is separated from the front cover, flip the back cover off theiPhone. You must be careful when doing this because a flat cable that goes tothe motherboard connects the two covers.

5. Remove the cable from the front cover to totallyseparate the two sides of the iPhone.

Tips & Warnings:

If you don’t want to damage the iPhone, you can use asmall plastic scribe to pry apart the covers of the iPhone.
Disassembling your phone case will void thewarranty, so you will have to go it alone to fix it if you break it.

Thank you guys for reading, hop you find it's useful.
