In the following steps you will be using an iOpener to warm the adhesive affixing the display assembly to the rest of the phone. This will allow for a safer, easier screen removal. For proper iOpener use, follow our iOpener heating guide, make sure to pay attention to all warnings.
Place a heated iOpener on the left side of the phone for at least 90 seconds.
Reheat the iOpener and place it on the right half of the phone.

EditStep 15
Place a reheated iOpener over the bottom portion of the display assembly.
There are delicate components in this portion of the phone, you want to ensure the adhesive is warm and easy to loosen to protect the phone.

EditStep 16
The bottom end of the phone contains the soft button and home button ribbon cables. If you insert the opening pick too far into the phone you risk cutting these cables.
Slide the very end of the opening pick across the bottom edge of the display to separate the last of the remaining adhesive.

EditStep 17
Twist the opening pick to detach the glass from the phone.
If the front panel does not detach easily, it may require additional adhesive cutting.

EditStep 18
If the front panel is not easily freed, the adhesive on the soft button cable may need to be separated.
These cables are thin and easily damaged, therefore be certain you are only peeling them off the display assembly and not lacerating them.
Insert an opening pick under the soft button icons on the display and pry the button cables down off the inside of the front panel.

3 EditStep 19
Slightly lift, but do not remove, the home button end of display assembly.
Do not remove the front panel entirely. It is still attached by a connector.
If you are reusing the home button flex cable, be careful not to sever the cable from the home button. Adhesive can cause the cable to rip apart from the home button. While the home button will still work, the fingerprint scanner will not.

EditStep 20
Use the sharp tip of a spudger to lift the front panel assembly cable connector straight up off its socket on the motherboard.
Safely remove the front panel assembly from phone.
