iPhone 11 Pro Back Glass Repair - The Toughest Glass Ever?

Blake Nov 07, 2019

As the most powerful and most advanced iPhone that Apple has ever built, iPhone 11 Pro  is made of a surgical grade stainless steel its back is a single piece of machine glass with an optical PVD coating, adding to the difficulty of repair. What’s more, the arrangement of rear cameras of iPhone 11 Pro also greatly increases the difficulty of back glass repair.

REWA LAB tried different solutions (heating with the Hot Air Gun, separating with the dispergator/freeze assistance) and we were unable to remove the glass around the triple-lens camera safely and efficiently. Check our detailed operation on iPhone 11 Pro back glass repair and hope we can enlighten you somehow.

 iPhone 11 Pro Max Screen Refurbishing – Detailed Operation

Scan The Back Glass With Laser

First of all, place the iPhone 11 Pro back glass under the probe for focusing. Then place the iPhone 11 Pro back glass on the operating panel.

Choose ‘iPhone 11 Pro’ from the model list and click ‘Load’ to load the drawing.

The black area on the drawing is the area to be scanned, And the white area is the area to be retained.

Tips: Compare the two drawings and we can see that different from iPhone X, there are more areas the laser should keep away from when scanning iPhone 11 Pro.

After loading the drawing of iPhone 11 Pro, adjust the laser light scanning area on the back glass. Once finished, get the parameter set and click ‘Mark’ to scan the back glass with the laser light. The back glass becomes transparent after laser scanning.

Scan The Glass Around The Triple-lens Camera With Laser

As you can see, the glass around the triple-lens camera is relatively thick. The laser light scanning didn’t work well with the area here. After several attempts and experiments, REWA LAB successfully completed a specialized drawing for the triple-lens camera area. Scan the triple-lens camera area again with the laser with the help of the drawing. The glass around the triple-lens camera also becomes transparent after the second laser scanning.

Separate The Back Glass From The Mid-frame 

Now we need to separate the back glass from the mid-frame. The scanned back glass can be separated easily. However, the glass around the triple-lens camera needs further operation. Our commonly used tools failed to remove the glass here, so we used a glass cutter, a grinding tool, a Sculpture Knife and a Cutting Nipper to remove the glass around the triple-lens camera. At the last, once completed, remove residual black adhesive with the Laser Machine.

The camera holder ring of iPhone 11 series is harder and comes with thick inside walls, adding to the difficulty of polishing. Meanwhile, the camera lens can also be easily damaged during polishing. So we highly recommend replacement back glass with a big camera hole for iPhone 11 series back glass repair.

Due to the special arrangement of the three cameras of iPhone 11 Pro, the space between the three cameras is also narrow, adding to the difficulty of back glass separating. Therefore, the Laser Machine may be the safest and most efficient solution for iPhone 11 Pro back glass repair.
