You can make the most of iPhone 5 parts to repair a broken Apple device rather than sending it to iPhone heaven, otherwise known as the dump. Repairs are not easy without a little help, but you will find all the equipment you need to replace screens, remove SIMs, add new batteries and much more. It is all a matter of choosing the right iPhone 5 spares and tools to suit the job.
A World of Colour
One of the best things about the iPhone 5 is that, unlike the iPhone 4 and 4S, it is actually possible to completely replace the exterior frame with a new case that converts the entire device to a different colour than was originally intended.
When installed by a professional, these conversion kits not only brighten up an iPhone 5 and make it stand out from the crowd, but also include colourful replacements for the volume, mute and power buttons so that the transformation is truly comprehensive.
From glorious green to sky blue and dazzling gold, there is a world of colour to unlock if you choose these iPhone 5 parts. And of course replacing the frame and buttons will also address any physical damage that occurred to the original casing and chassis.
Undo Display Disasters
With a bigger screen than its predecessors, the iPhone 5 has even more hazards to face in daily use, with the toughened glass on the front still suffering from all too common scratches and smashing in many cases. If this damage is superficial, then making repairs can be very inexpensive, but even if you need to replace the iPhone 5 LCD Retina Display panel in addition to the glass frontage, the cost will not be anywhere near as much as you might imagine.
Since the iPhone 5 is still being manufactured and sold by Apple and its partners, you can get official spare parts which are guaranteed to be compatible with your device and work just as well as the original screen you had before it needed repairs for whatever reason.
Seeking these official parts is advised if you do not want to compromise on the user experience and wish to keep using your iPhone 5 in the long term, rather than putting up with second-rate components that are more of a quick fix but could cause bigger problems if they fail later.
Get Some Leverage
The popularity of the iPhone 5 and the common need to carry out repairs have led to a number of third-party firms creating tools that are designed to make this a lot easier.
For example, you might want to install an older SIM card in your iPhone 5 and find that it is simply not in the right form factor for the nano SIM slot that is present on the device. In that case, a dedicated SIM card cutter might be a good investment, since it saves you from having to use guesswork when hacking at your network provider
