How To: Replace an iPhone battery

Replace an iPhone battery

Let's face it—batteries are Apple's only real downfall when it comes to their products, and the iPhone is no exception. If you're constantly recharging your iPhone's battery, it's probably time for a replacement (battery, not iPhone).

You can choose to hand it over to Apple, who will send it out to get fixed, leaving you iPhone-less for weeks, and charge you overpriced fees, OR you can buy a replacement battery and do it yourself. This video goes through the whole process of replacing your iPhone's battery, so pay attention and save some money.

NOTE: This is only for the Apple iPhone 1st Generation, not for the iPhone 3G, 3GS or 4.

Just updated your iPhone? You'll find new features for Podcasts, News, Books, and TV, as well as important security improvements and fresh wallpapers. Find out what's new and changed on your iPhone with the iOS 17.5 update.

Great video; I'm sure it will be useful one day (not to soon I hope), but if there is a great risk of shorting the red wire to the chassis; why not remove the black wire first and remove the hazard?
