  You probably suspect by now that the LCD screen on your iPhone is one of the most sensitive and vulnerable parts of your gadget. LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) screens are commonly used in many electronic gadgets such as TVs and computer monitors. The screen is made up of ultra-thin layers. Two of those layers are polarized panels, between which is a solution of liquid crystal – hence the name. When light is projected through these layers, the liquid crystal layer becomes colorized and produces the image that we see on the phone. Due to its design and material, the LCD screen is easily prone to damage and breakage.

 

  It's never a good day when you drop your iPhone and realize the screen has broken. Luckily, the iPhone 5c is one of the easier iPhone DIY repairs when it comes to screen replacements. We showed you a while back how to replace a busted iPhone 5c display. Since then one of our favorite parts suppliers, cellphoneage, has made this particular repair even easier by offering displays that come with small parts already pre-installed. That means there's nothing to transfer. Just replace the front assembly and you're done, making this an easy repair, even for beginners!

 

  The main difference between this guide and my other 5c guide is the level of difficulty and convenience. This guide is the route we'd recommend for 90% of people looking who are looking to replace their own iPhone 5c screen. It only costs about $15 more and will save you tons of time, and possible headaches. These are the parts that will already come pre-installed on your iPhone 5c display as opposed to having to transfer them over on your own:

  1. LCD shield plate
  2. Front camera with induction flex cable assembly
  3. Front camera
  4. Earpiece bracket
  5. Earpiece speaker
  6. Home button with rubber gasket
  7. Home button flex
  8. Home button bracket

 

This is also a difficult option to try. You need to have the necessary skill to replace the screen. Unlike other mobile phones, the iPhone has a lot of minute and sensitive parts. You have to be careful about the antenna, logic board, battery, tiny screws and other things. You can repair your phone by yourself when you have done a lot of research and you have the equipment to do it. But remember, if you open the phone, then you won’t get Apple service in future.

 

There are lots of parts suppliers out there but not all of them are created equal, especially fly by night Amazon and eBay resellers. That's why we recommend always using a supplier that specializes in iPhone parts and offers a warranty of some kind. We suggest the cellphoneage.com as your first retailer for your broken screen. There are highest quality LCD available on the market. In addition, it offers 7 piece tool which can meet your DIY demands. All of our screens go through rigorous QC testing to ensure customers to receive the best quality screen parts. Our iPhone 5C screen features the beautiful 4 inch Retina display. With a pixel density of 326 PPI and over 16 million colors. Here, I’d like to emphasize that we offer Grade O iPhone 5c LCD screen that have 120 days warranty as well. If you have any problems, you can ask our customer support and QC specialist for help during your installation or repairing.

 

  Before performing any repair on any iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch you should always remember to power it off. Simply hold down on the Power button until you see Slide to Power off. One you're sure your iPhone is turned off, proceed to the next section. There are two security screws that secure the screen to the frame and they sit on each side of the dock connector. Use your 5-point security screwdriver to remove them. They are both the same size so it's okay if you mix them up. Next, attach the three cables on the new display to the logic board of your iPhone 5c.

 

  The ideal place to repair your iPhone is AppleCare. The cost of replacing a screen at Apple service center is reasonable. Don’t take your phone to an un-trustable repair center at the local gas station or at a mall. Shattered iPhone 5c screen replacement may ruin your whole day. If you don’t want to experience that, just select a third-party retailer can assist you properly.
