If you’re looking to become an iPhone repair professional, there are many tools that can help you get started on the right foot. Here is an iPhone repairing tools list you might not have thought of that will get your business off to a great start.
Repairing an iPhone or other smartphone may seem like a difficult task, but with the right tools, it’s much easier than you think. Whether you’re fixing the iPhone screen or repairing internal issues, the following eight iPhone repair tools will make things much easier for you.
1. Suction Cup
This little suction cup is a lifesaver when it comes to working on iPhones and iPads. Stick it on your countertop or desk, prop up your device and you’ll have easy access to all those hard-to-reach screws. The more space you have for your hands to move around, the better—and once you’ve finished taking apart your device, it can double as a stand.
2. Phillips #000 screwdriver
The iPhone 11 and other Apple devices are notoriously difficult to open up. And if you don’t know what you’re doing, trying to pry open your phone will likely break it even more (not to mention void your warranty). If you have a Phillips #000 screwdriver, however, you can easily open up your device and fix it yourself no matter where in the world you happen to be.
3. Spudger tool
The number one tool you need to have on hand is a spudger tool (also known as a flat-head screwdriver, prying tool, or plastic opening tool). Most iPhone screens can be removed by using a plastic opening tool, and there are plenty of affordable options out there.
An Original Quality Tweezers! Tweezers are one of those must-have items that seem so obvious once you think about them. The best tweezers for iPhone repairs are small, pointy and precise and if you’re not careful, you can bend or break them (so maybe pick up a few in different sizes). A high-quality set of tweezers is worth every since it will be a permanent part of your toolkit.
5. Plastic pry tool
The plastic pry tool is an essential part of any repair kit—you’ll use it to pop open iPhone cases and separate glass from aluminum. The iSesamo’s small size also makes it ideal for use in hard-to-reach areas, like a home button assembly.
6. ESD safe tweezers
If you looking for a high-quality, multi-functional pair of tweezers for your iPhone repairing lab? Look no further than ESD safe tweezers. Electronic systems like computers, televisions and cell phones are sensitive to electrostatic discharge (ESD), so it’s best to keep a pair of these ESD safe tweezers nearby. These are ideal for working with delicate electronic components because they won’t conduct electricity or leave scratches.
7. Small metal flat head screwdriver (0.4mm precision width is a good choice.)
One of the most important tools in your iPhone repairing tools kit should be a small metal flat head screwdriver. It may sound like an obvious item, but many people will miss it. This tiny little tool is perfect for loosening and tightening small screws on an iPhone or iPad that are difficult to reach. A precision width (0.4mm) screwdriver will do just fine if you don’t have anything smaller at hand, but we recommend getting one as soon as possible because it will come in handy frequently.
8. Metal spudger tool with double-ended pry end
A pry end on one side of your metal spudger tool and a flat edge on another make it easy to remove batteries, SIM cards, and other small parts from mobile devices. In order to prevent damaging your phone by pulling off important components like these too hard, use your tool of choice to gently prize them out of their slots. Keep in mind that you should never force anything into or out of any electronic device, as doing so can break it.
