iPhone 6 Battery
I wonder if it'd be ok to maybe use less of the adhesive strips. I guess their function is to keep the battery from sliding around. I was thinking in hindsight since I had such a hard time getting the battery out, why not just use minimal stripping to keep it from sliding? Maybe little squares on the corners. This would make the battery easier to get free when the strips break because there would be less sticky surface area holding it in but enough to keep that light weight battery from sliding. I did the full stripping and I'm hoping I never have to do this again as my experience of taking off the strips almost resulted in a calamity. Next time though I may just heat the back up to melt the strips without even trying to take them out like described.
I skipped the steps removing the screen only because I didn't feel confident at all doing this. For someone who is used to electronics I would really suggest removing it because I imagine the whole process would've been easier. If there's a next time, perhaps I'll do that.
This part is where I almost gave up. The strips broke, I tried to pry it out, then I heated the back with a hair dryer. I used an ID card and got under it and shimmied left and right until the battery was able to break look from the strips. Afterwards the battery was bent which concerned me it could just break. At this point I realized, yes, Apple does not want you to get in their phones. After it came out all went well and was glad to have finished this.
I'd like a little more explanation on how to re-attach the battery connector. But in the end I lined it up and pressed gently down till it snapped into place.
