use of solvents in iPhone X repair

I’m about to replace the battery in my iPhone X with a new one from you. Your guide recommends using isopropyl alcohol for removing old adhesive residue but none is available locally. Will denatured alcohol work instead?


Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hey there!

Thanks for your question. Our tech writers discourage the use of denatured alcohol since it leaves behind a residue. We do carry an adhesive remover in our store, but it is flammable, so caution is advised around heat sources.

You can also use a heat gun or hair dryer to loosen the adhesive under the battery and slide a piece of floss underneath to remove it. You can find more detailed instructions here.

I hope this helps!
