Apple iPhone 4S Teardown & Repair Parts Available Hours after Release

Morgan Hill, Calif. – October 14, 2011 – DirectFix, the leader in “Do It Yourself iPhone Repairs”, announced that within hours of the iPhone 4S being available to the public they have the replacement screens available for those that happen to drop and crack their screen the first day it is available. The iPhone 4S teardown & repair directions showing how to install and replace the iPhone 4S screen are available for free on their youtube channel (Here). The directions show step by step how to repair a broken iPhone 4S screen, battery and other parts. Just like in the past DirectFix was the first to carry parts for the iPhone 4S as soon as it was available. The iPhone 4S Replacement Screen will be available in both black and white for $99 at introduction. There is a limited supply of these available at this time. DirectFix is also offering a screen repair service for the iPhone 4S starting today for just $120 which includes all parts and labor. “We hope that people that purchased the new iPhone 4S enjoy it and take good care of it but accidents happen and when they do you can save money and fix the iPhone 4S screen yourself” says Robert Stanley, founder of DirectFix.com. “Just like in the past the manufactures charge an outrageous amount of money for a simple repair.

iPhone 4S Replacement Screen with LCD & Touch Panel Black

Just like the iPhone 4 the iPhone 4S will require you to replace the complete screen as one unit and you are not able to separate the LCD from the Touch Panel.

As reported by us and also reported on many news sites the iPhone 4S screen is nothing like the iPhone 3G or iPhone 3GS. You are not able to separate the Touch Panel from the LCD and just replace the one broken part you need. The iPhone 4S Touch Panel and LCD are fused or adhered together just like the iPhone 4 in 2010 and original iPhone 2G from 2007. At the factory Apple has taken the LCD and Touch Panel and adhered it together so it is one complete screen which also allowed them to make the iPhone 4S thinner. Just because a part is available on Ebay for sale does not mean it is the correct part to fix your problem. This is the case with the iPhone 4 & iPhone 4S and many people on ebay are selling the iPhone 4 & 4S LCD and iPhone 4/4S Touch Panel part by themselves. We have sacrificed many iPhone 4/4S screens trying to figure out a way to get the touch panel and lcd to separate from one another without any damage. Every time we attempted to take it apart a part would be damaged and or not work properly once put back together. We understand that it is very tempting to want to save some money by purchasing the cheap part from a vendor on Ebay but after the hours you will spend trying to fix your phone just to find out that the part is not correct is not worth it. I also doubt that any of those Ebay sellers selling the wrong part is going to take it back so you will be stuck with a part that does not fix your issue and you still need to get the correct part.

Our advice is to just follow the directions we have listed at DirectFix.com and read the information that we have provided so you get the correct part the first time. This will save you time, money and a big head ache dealing with some kid or person that is just out to make a quick buck selling parts out of their bedroom on Ebay.

The proper part to repair a damaged screen for the iPhone 4S are as follows:

iPhone 4S Complete Screen in Black is Part Number IP-2504

iPhone 4S Complete Screen in White is Part Number IP-2504
