  • Can you tell us more about this? I'd want to find out some additional information.

  • I know that the iphone 5c and 5s lcd assembly are not the same or compatible for their frames.However,if I installed the lcd assembly of either one on the other would the Lcd display the icons?or are the connectors the same (3 connectors)?because I have a problem with my iphone 5c lcd and before I buy a new assembly,can I try to see if iphone 5s Lcd assembly works on my Iphone 5 c since I have an iphone 5s as spare?

    • Hi, the LCD and touch flex cable are different too. iPhone 5C touch flex cable is wider. If you put 5C Screen on 5S (or put 5S screen on 5C), you will fail, because the connectors totally can not seat on the motherboard socket.
