    Make sure you replace the waterproof seal and make sure you get a legit battery from a reputable source so your phone does not start on fire.

    What's it mean if you replaced your battery and your phone turns back on fine, but the apple icon will appear and it will shut down after 5 mins or so?

    For a professional that deals with iPhones and their parts I am totally shocked on this demonstration of how to replace a 6S battery for instance the thing he held the screen up on the bottle he allowed the screen to go totally flat on the desk putting loads of strain on the cables that he was demonstrating that must never be strained also there was no adhesive around the perimeter of the phone to content with and it was just a joke of a of a demonstration very unprofessional

    When you do this do you lose some waterproofing? The guy mentioned the original seals were for waterproofing.

    I puncture the battery and it started smoking a little, then stopped. Can I still safely remove it? Or is the phone ruined?

    there's no finesse at all in removing the battery. otherwise none of the adhesive strips would be left behind. more like a gorilla removing the battery.

    oof I cringed so hard when he opened the screen all the way down. DO NOT DO THAT you could damage your screen's ribbon cables and that will make this operation a lot costlier. then when he used a rubber band I just stopped watchig. that's almost as bad as verge building a computer

    This video is a bad example. It’s rushed and not very helpful due to camera angels, him rushing the process, and some important details being cut out. He says “I’ve got this backwards” then the camera zooms out and we’re not even able to see how he fixed the problem.

    That seal isn’t for waterproofing in the 6s. I’ve dropped 2 iPhone 6s pluses in water and the water got inside immediately. That seal is there for dust resistance. There’s a big difference between 6s and 7 seal.

    Absolutely rubbish. A staged phone reopened. Not a true representation of how you would find things.
