Cracked Backed Glass - iPhone 11

HI, newer here. Have ordered a few things and am a beginner at repairing. Hope to make it a true side hustle soon. Newest thing, got an iPhone 11 with cracked back glass. The fix it video on here shows using an expensive laser. I found some other videos on removing back glass without the laser, looks more time consuming but not ready for an investment on over $1k on laser. My question is can anyone recommend a good video/guide for back glass replacement (without laser) for iPhone 11 or whatever model, and what are the cleaners and glue that are being used in the videos I have found (they are not called out). And just wondering, anyone using a laser care to comment on it, mainly is it worth if for the price? The decent on I saw was $1,700. Thanks in advance

I would just replace the entire housing. Removing the back glass with heat or even a laser is a big risk to the phone if you don’t disassemble it. Replacing the entire housing will also restore the condition of the sides so if there are any dents or scratches on the sides those will no longer be a problem. In my opinion the laser isn’t worth it because of the damage it can cause and it is still a messy process. I hope this helps, if you have any questions I would be happy to answer them.

I understand, makes sense. Good point on the sides as well. My only thought is material wise that seems more expensive and I assume it gets away from the apple logo on the back?

I understand the part about the price, it can certainly be a little more expensive but in my opinion it is worth it. It avoids all of the risk and you have a brand new housing afterwards. If you order the housing from the right place you can keep the apple logo, some places sell the housings without the apple logo while others sell them with it.

M Triangle is a popular make laser, I personally have TBK. These types use a built in pc or require a laptop to use software, or even import files to customise things, like pictures or messages on the glass/certain metals.

Then there's a forward blue laser, pretty much plug and play, but it can litterally only do phones, nothing else.

Lasers can work 100% of the time if you're ae to assess how the glass is broken, as the light can refract and hit a component. 90% of these issues you can usually replace the component. But if you “mask” the vulnerable area, you won't have an issue. You can even buy covers now, which will only allow the laser to hit safe places.

Heat, you need a really sturdy desk clamp, a good hot air station and a small hobby knife blade.

You have to be very careful not to cut any cables, or hold the heat in one area for too long. Problem here is, people who use laser will swear by it, and vice versa.

For me, I can laser the back while replacing/refurbishing the screen.

Also to note, logo glass, could potentially land you with a law suit from Apple, alot will bang on about logo glass, but alot don't realise it's the same for housings too, unless you're using genuine pulls, then anything with a logo should be considered a no go. You find most who use logo stuff will work from home.

In regards to quality, one answer was to do full housing swap, I offer both, housing and glass only, this way, you price accordingly for your time, and customer gets to choose. Majority of the time, they want glass only, unless I say I can't fit the glass to a bent housing.

Yes it's alot of money, but the markup is much better! All I had was a heat plate, some basic tools, and truetone writer. Bought the laser machine, and I now have my workshop done out, spent thousands more on soldering equipment, and screen refurbshing, screen protection machines. You need to choose which path for back glass (laser/heat) and then reinvest into other kit, as trust me, it'll come in very very handy, otherise, in a couple more years or so, you'll either need to send the phone off to a microsolderer or a refurber as you won't be able to compete with the prices being offered around you.

Best of luck 👌👍

That is easy in the case some of the important information that you have to know before changing broken back glass. I saw so many iPhone was dead or network-related issues and also restart or stuck on the Apple logo all was from the mistake. The tips that you have to be careful on some point while changing broken back glass.
