iPhone X battery connector replacement
Alright, so I posted on here a while ago about salvaging an iPhone X that was water damaged, and I did my best to clean it, but after taking a better look at the board under magnification I discovered the battery connector on the logic board seems to be either corroded or fried.
I have found out that the connector can be replaced, but will require micro-soldering. At this point it’s more or less practice, because he’s gonna just buy a new phone if I cant fix it, but it would be awesome to get it working again.
I was wondering if anyone here has any input on the difficulty/requirements of this job, because I can’t seem to find anything about it online. I guess my main questions are: will I need to open up the “sandwich” of the board to replace this connector, and what type of solder should be used for this job? Also if there’s anything else I should look out for or be careful about to do this job successfully.
