This fix is easy to DIY at home do but you need to have steady hands to repair your iPhone.
If in doubt, do not do this yourself and take it to your nearest repair shop to do it for you.

This DIY howto video shows you how to change or replace the battery in your Apple iPhone 5S smartphone. This works for iPhone 5C too.
Showing a macro / close-up view of the important moments when changing the iPhone battery.

I have changed the battery before on my iPhone, that’s why it’s more easy to change it now. Reusing the original battery glue strips means that it’s easier to remove the battery when you change it again later.

The old battery was starting to get weaker at about 70% of it’s original capacity and I’ve decided not to wait until the battery lasts 2 hours again like before.

Also wanted to show you a better view of the important moments with macro video. 🙂

If this is the first time the battery is changes on you iPhone or new glue strips were installed before, you can pull the tab with the glue string (shown in video) to remove them or use the alternative method and not that it will be more difficult than it’s shown here.
The original glue strips can be softened if you heat the back of the phone with a hair dryer or heat-gun.

You can do this easy fix or repair yourself.
It’s the second time I do this, if I could do it, you can do it too!
