iPhone XS glass replacement

To change the back glass on the case, it will not be enough just to pick up the broken glass and replace it with a new one. This is because the glass of the case goes under the frame of the camera and it will be necessary to remove the frame of the camera, which is welded by dott laser welding to the case of the iPhone XS. High temperature is very ruinous to the battery, so the battery must also be removed. All these disassembly steps are shown step by step in the video instructions.

What difficulties you may encounter in the repair process.

An ordinary hair dryer will not be enough to heat the cracked glass surface well for removing. You need a hair dryer that gives a temperature of 350 degrees Celsius.

Using high temperature, the glass can be remove, but this temperature is quite high, so I recommend using gloves, glasses for eye protection and a surface resistant to high temperatures, for example, a silicone pad for soldering.
