How to Change an iPhone 11 to iPhone 12

The iPhone 12 is launching on the phone market this October. Although it is a time we still have to wait to see this new iPhone module in the flagship store, some of the third-party iPhone 12 back housing has been manufactured. Based on this, we are trying to modify a new iPhone 12 phone by replacing the iPhone 11 parts in the back housing. Let’s check the specific steps below.


1. Tear down the iPhone 11 and take off all the inside parts and components

Unbolt the two screws on the button and use a hot air gun to blow on the iPhone 11 display. Use a suction cup and an ultra-thin plastic sheet to slice and separate the display. Flip over the display after it is separated, unbolt the screws and take off the metal shield for fixing the display flex cables. Disconnect and take down the display from the iPhone 11. Take off the taptic engine and the loudspeaker first, then the SIM card tray slot, eject and take out the SIM card beforehand. Disconnect and take off the battery from the iPhone after that. Unbolt the screws and pry out to take off the charging port connector flex, then disconnect and take off the rear-facing cameras and front-facing camera module. Takedown the logic board and bottom flex as well. Take off all the side keys and flex, and the power button flex at last.

2. Assemble all the iPhone 11 parts and components to the iPhone 12 back housing

After all the iPhone 11 inside parts are taken off, here we need to assemble them to the iPhone 12 back housing. Apply the wireless charging coil first on the back housing. Assemble the side key buttons, tighten the screws, and the small metal shield to fix them. Install the dust-proof into the loudspeaker, and then assemble the power button flex. Install the Bluetooth flex, the logic board, and the iPhone 11 rear-facing camera with flex cable onto the back housing, connect the flex cables. Assemble the charging port flex and tighten the screws for fixing it. Install the taptic engine and loudspeaker, connect the flex cables, and fix the cable with a metal shield. Install the SIM card slot and fasten the screws, then install the battery. Don’t forget to past the battery sticker tape on it.

3. Install the iPhone 11 display, turn on the iPhone and test the functions

After all the inside parts are installed, we need to assemble the iPhone 11 display screen on to the iPhone. Apply the water-proof frame sticker on the back housing. Connect the flex cables, place the metal shield, and tighten the screws for fixing it. Insert the SIM card tray into the phone. Assemble the display and make sure it is tightly sealed on the back housing. Turn on the phone and test the functions, such as the screen sensitiveness, the cameras, the Bluetooth connection, the auto-brightness function, the face ID, etc. Make sure all the functions are normal.


There is something we have to notice during the process. Some of the iPhone 11 parts and screws are tiny, we need to be careful about classification. Don’t mess them up or miss any part. The flex is easy to break, just be careful while tearing down. In the end, it is recommended to go to Etrade Supply for iPhone 11 replacement parts if you are interested in our modification test. You may leave us a message if you have questions about our products.

Fix the iPhone Incoming Calls not Show on Sleep Mode

The iPhone incoming calls not show when on sleep mode. This issue exists because of the faulty signal baseband component on the logic board. The normal repair solution is taking out the logic board, checking the baseband, and replacing the faulty component. The process would be difficult and complex. Here we can connect a wire from the baseband wake signal point to the WiFi wake signal point to borrow the signal so that the problem would be solved. Check the detailed steps below.


1. Tear down the iPhone screen and take off the logic board

Hot air gun blow on the display, unbolt and take off the two screws on the bottom. Slice and separate the display screen. Disconnect the display flex cables and the battery flex cable, take off the display. Eject and take out the SIM card. Snap and remove the screws, take off the metal panel. Take out the motherboard carefully with tweezers. Fix the motherboard on the PCB motherboard holder. Use a hot air gun to blow on the motherboard and tear off the heat-resistant tape on the back slowly.


2. Confirm the signal points and solid tin wire to connect the points

From the Sitemap software on the computer, we can see all the component location and signal points. Confirm the baseband wake signal point location and the WiFi wake signal point location on the software, and then confirm the points on the motherboard. Scratch off the insulating coat from the two points, paste some solder glue on the two points. Solder a tin wire to connect the two points, then coat the wire with a UV solder mask.


3. Install the logic board back to the iPhone and assemble the iPhone

Take off the motherboard from the PCB board after the solder is solidified. Install the motherboard to the iPhone. Connect the iPhone X display screen with flex cables and the battery cable. Insert the SIM card back into the iPhone. Turn on the iPhone and try to call the numbers with another phone. The incoming calls show when the iPhone is on sleep mode. The repair procedure is successful. Turn off the iPhone again. Fix the metal panel and tighten the screws back. Assemble the iPhone. All process is completed.



The process above is fast and efficient to solve the iPhone incoming calls not showing on the sleep mode problem. We don’t have to tear down the logic board and check the PMU and baseband CPU. This has saved us a lot of time and work. As a premise, we need to know how to tear down the iPhone X series and replace the iPhone X parts well. Stick on the Etrade Supply blog and you will learn much about iPhone repair.

5 Useful Tips and Tricks You Should Know About iPhone

We use our iPhone every day but we seldom know about all the functions iPhone could do for us. Although we use our iPhone quite a long time, there are still some hidden functional features we do not know about it. Here we would like to share 5 tips and tricks about our iPhone with you. You should try each of them and make your iPhone more efficient for use.


1. Custom actions on Assistive Touch

We can custom lots of actions by setting on Assistive Touch. This give us the shortcuts on taking a lot of actions only by taping on the float home button. For example, we can go to apps switcher by double-tap on home button, triple-tap to home screen, etc. To custom our manipulate actions, we can go to Settings >> Accessibility >> Touch >> Assistive Touch. There you can see three actions for you to set the shortcuts.

2. Sign on documents scanned with notes App

Our iPhone not only can scan documents with iPhone rear camera to note app, but also can add signature on the scanned documents. Tap on the document you want to sign and tap on the share button on the upright. Tap on markup and then the plus button on the side. Tap on signature and then you can add your select signature on any place you like on the document. You may also adjust the size of the signature.

3. Quick keywords searching on Safari

Sometimes it takes us a lot of time on searching the contents we want on a page with our phone. This function will be a great help to us. We can simply enter the keywords and tap on the result. We can see all the words in we are searching for in the context. We can tap down to check more keywords in the page and search the context we want.

4. Units convert easily on spotlight search

We don’t have to download a third party app for convert units or currency if we know this trick on our iPhone. All we have to do is entering the units on the spotlight search, the searching results will show you the answer. For example, when we enter “1 US dollar to pounds” on the spotlight search, there will be answers on the result. Besides, we can tap on the result to copy the converted data.

5. Attention Awareness features

Our iPhone can automatically adjust the screen lightness and the notification sound on our eye awareness to the iPhone display screen. Most of us would not know this function and even use it. When you turn on Attention Awareness on your iPhone, the Face ID sensor will automatically notify your face if you are taking attention on the screen so that it can adjust the lightness and the screen auto-lock time, and so as the notification volume sound.


These are the five useful tips and trick we may not know about our iPhone. There are more hidden iPhone tips and tricks we don’t use quite much but will find them quite useful after we try and use it. Besides, you may also come to Etrade Supply for iPhone replacement parts such like iPhone 11 LCD display screen and digitizer replacement and so on.

Here we would like to demonstrate how to tear down the iPhone SE 2nd display and replace the rear camera. We hope this could be the tutorial guide for someone who is interested in smartphone repair. Check this out:

1. Tear down the iPhone and separate the display
First of all, we need to turn off the phone and take out the SIM card tray. Loosen and twist off the two pentalobe screws on the bottom. Use hot air gun to blow on the edge and each corner of the display for easy separation. Use a suction cup and ultra-thin plastic plectrum to slice around and separate the display.

iPhone SE 2020 VS iPhone 8 – Which parts Could be Swapped?

The iPhone SE 2nd has been released and it looks similar to iPhone 8. Despite the iPhone SE 2020 special functions, such as 3D touch and true tone, it is still possible that some of the iPhone 8 parts could be swapped on iPhone SE 2nd. Here we make a test on some of the swappable parts between these two models. Let’s see what they are.



1. Swappable parts:

Display Screen

Cameras

Ear speakers

Taptic engine

Charging port

SIM card tray

Notice: The iPhone SE display screen and iPhone 8 screen are swappable, but the iPhone SE 3D touch function and true tone cannot display on iPhone 8. We need to copy the iPhone SE display data via an IP Eeprom programmer and rewrite the data to the iPhone 8 display screen so that we can have true tone if we replace the iPhone SE display screen with iPhone 8 display. Details refer to our blog: How to Get True Tone Function Back on Aftermarket iPhone X OLED Screen?

The iPhone SE cameras can be replaced with iPhone 8’s, conversely, iPhone 8 cannot replace with iPhone SE’s cameras.



2. Not swappable parts:

Battery

Back battery panel

Home button

Reasons: The iPhone SE battery and iPhone 8 battery cannot be interchanged because the connector size is different. The iPhone SE battery flex cable is larger than the iPhone 8’s. The back battery door cannot be replaced because logo color and position are different, which makes the protective cover be different in these two iPhone models. The iPhone SE 2020 and iPhone 8 home button cannot be interchanged because the iPhone SE Touch ID security requirement tends to be higher than iPhone 8’s.



The description above is mainly about the interchangeable parts between iPhone SE 2020 and iPhone 8. It would be helpful if we learned these swappable parts. Also, the iPhone 8 parts replaced on iPhone SE is cost-saving in some way. In the end, Etrade Supply has the best quality iPhone SE 2020 replacement parts and iPhone 8 parts here. Just contact us if you are interested.

How to Upgrade the iPhone X Memory

The iPhone memory could be upgraded to larger storage by tearing the logic board, separating the NAND flash, and restore the data. We tried this before on the iPhone 6s and made the storage upgraded successfully. This time we do it on an iPhone X and see if it works. The iPhone X storage will be upgraded from 64G to 256G if the procedure is successful. Here are the steps we are taking in the process below. Check it out:

1. Tear down the phone and take out the logic board
Firstly, we need to tear down the iPhone display screen. Loosen the screws and remove the metal plate, then disconnect the battery cable and all the display screen connectors. Take out the SIM card tray. Carefully pry out the logic board from the phone, and fixing it on the PCB board holder. The NAND flash chipset is in the center of the logic board, which contains the memory data of the phone. We need to separate it so that we can restore the 256G data in it. Let’s move to the next step.

2. Separate the NAND flash chipset, copy and restore the data
Use hot air gun to blow on the NAND flash chipset in 330℃ until it is loose. Gently pry to separate it with an ultra-thin steel pry tool. Flip it over aside after it is separate from the board pad. Clean out the adhesive glue from the logic pad with tweezers with 365℃ hot air gun blowing at the same time. Place a new 256G flash into the NAND flash recovery data programmer and store the storage data. Take it out after it is finished and place the 56G NAND flash into the programmer. Restore the data to the flash from the programmer. Now the NAND flash storage data has been rewritten. We need to reball it and install it back to the logic board.

3. Reballing the NAND flash and install it to the logic board
Place the NAND flash on the repair table. Cover the GBA reballing stencil on it, make sure it is in the right position on it. Smear the solder on the stencil and heat the solder with 330℃ hot air gun blowing until it shapes completely. Remove the stencil after the solder coagulated. Hot air gun blow on it for a while to make it shapes completely. Leave the NAND flash to cold down and then install it back to the logic board. Before that, we need to paste some BGA fluid on the logic board pad. Hot air gun blows on it and adjust the position with tweezers.

4. Install the logic board back to the iPhone and connect the display screen back
After the NAND flash is cold and coagulated, we need to install the logic board back to the iPhone. Tighten the screws for fixing the logic board. Connect the display screen back and insert the SIM card tray back. Plug the battery connector and fixing the cables with metal plate and screws. Turn on the iPhone and connect it to computer via iTunes.

5. Store the iPhone in DFU mode and assemble the iPhone
In the end, we need to store the iPhone in DFU mode so that the storage data could be restored. When the process is finished, the iPhone will restart automatically. At this time we can check the storage on Settings. Here we can see the memory has been upgraded into 256G. Turn off the phone and assemble the iPhone X display screen and digitizer back. All the procedure is finished.

Finally, we need to know that the manipulation above is under the hands of the professional repair person’s, and with the technological devices. The iPhone logic board life will be shortened after the storage upgrade procedure. We suggest you consider it times if you want to do it to your iPhone X. Anyway, Etrade Supply has the best iPhone X replacement parts here. Please go to our online store or contact us if you need any parts for iPhone repair.
