Below are the steps carried out by our engineer while replacing the screen on your iPhone XR. We wait the finished product to be as close to factory as possible, so take a few extra steps that others don’t
We test your iPhone before the repair to evaluate what working and what’s not before the repair. The most important feature on an iPhone X and above is FaceID. We make sure this works before removing the screen.
We remove the original screen, adhesive seal and any dust or sand inside the iPhone. We then clean the inside edge of the iPhone with a cleaning solvent.
We then apply an adhesion promoter to the frame edge. This takes about 5 minutes to dry.
Next we copy the serial numbers from the original screen over to the replacement screen. This ensures that there are no issues with TrueTone, the ambient light sensor or touchscreen sensitivity.
We then apply a new frame seal.
We then remove the front flex assembly. This contains the front microphone, earpiece, ambient light sensor and FaceID flood illuminator. Once cleaned we fit this to the new screen
￼We next fit the next screen to the logic board, fit the three securing brackets and 10 screws. We then make sure the flex cables from the new screen have the correct bend radius before fitting the screen into the housing
After fitting the two bottom screws we put the iPhone into a press for around 5 minutes. This ensure the frame seal is adhered fully.
The last step is to fit a screen protector and run a full test.
