Relace iPhone 4s battery not go to Apple stores

I have one old iPhone 4s for years and its battery went wrong recently, and I know the best way is to ask help for local Apple store, but I prefer to try myself rather to wait months. I bought this 4s years ago, and I guess its full charge cycles over 400 times already…it need a replacement installed but my iPhone warranty will be invalidated if I do the installed myself...

I got some tutorials from our friend google. turned over the phone and found that four screws on it so I removed them with a 00 screwdriver gingerly. Before doing so, remember to switch off the phone.After several minutes I was success to remove the back cover and get the battery out. I have already purchased a MPJ 2500mAh external battery specialized for iPhone 4s online and it cost me only roughly $20( need to pay more to replace one in Apple store).


Do not lose the little crews as I almost lose one…. Then remove both 2 screws which secures the battery connector to the motherboard and lift up it from the top and bottom edges carefully and use tab ( I only found a similar thing ) to pull the battery up and take it out. This need force to finish it. And finally, replace the new battery i bought properly…and tighten back all the screws and recovered the back shell.


It can perfectly work again now!

That's awesome! Good for you. Since it was obviously out of warranty and you knew what you weer geting yourself into, that's a great way to handle the situation.
