Can I put an iPhone 5 screen on a 5c?
I wanted to put a white screen on the iPhone 5c. Do you know if the two phones have the same component?
Of course not,the frame of iPhone 5S is different from iPhone 5C.And the Home button hole is different too.
Before replacing your broken screen,please check carefully what your iPhone model is.
Here is the picture of the difference between iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C LCD Screen:
the 5c and 5s LCD and digitizer connector is the same.
BUT... Plastic frame is different, the Home Button hole on 5s is larger (for the fingerprint reader), thus, not interchangeable
from the motherboard images i have seen, the connectors are different between the 5 & 5s so it is highly unlikely that the screens will be compatible.
The iPhone 5 and 5c are NOT exactly the same. They may operate and run the same but apple changed the internals so that most of the parts are NOT compatible between the two models, screen included.
You will not be able to use a iPhone 5 screen on a iPhone 5C then have a different digitizer connectors.
Yes, Please do not attempt to buy an iPhone 5 LCD assembly expecting to be able and use it on an iPhone 5C.
The connectors to the mother board are different.
On the iPhone 5, both the LCD and Digitizer connectors are horizontal.
Versus the iPhone 5C;
The digitizer connector is vertical. The LCD connector is horizontal. And, on both the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c, the front camera flex cable is also vertical.
The iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C are NOT identical.
They are completly different apart from the screen size

The only way I can think this could be done is a glass only replacement, while the assembly is different on all three phones, I think the glass dimensions are the same, a glass replace kit can be bought for around £10 on ebay.
There are plenty of glass only repair videos on youtube, but be warned,this way is a lot of effort and you could break your original screen.
