The Apple iPhone 5S has just gone on sale and, as the diehard fan that you are, you went out and bought yourself one. One thing leads to another and before you know it you’ve smashed your display. Now what? Your warranty won’t cover a new display and repair centers ask exuberant amounts of money to replace the display, especially considering how new the iPhone 5S.
How do you repair a broken iPhone 5S screen? Repairs Universe has created this nifty video showing you how to disassemble the iPhone 5S and subsequently replace your broken display. It is quite simple, you unscrew the bottom screws, use a suction cup and prying tool to lift the display, unplug the fingerprint sensor, unscrew and unplug the display cables then remove the front camera, fingerprint sensor and other sensors as well as the speaker. Then you reverse all of these steps with your brand new iPhone 5S display that you purchased prior to your adventure into the inner workings of your iPhone 5S.
iSuppli says the iPhone 5S’ display assembly costs $41, but of course those available on the market is much more, $285 in fact. Add to that all of the tools that you’ll need and you’re set to pay roughly $299 to replace your iPhone 5S display, which is pretty much the majority of the price for a new iPhone.
