Why not tell users to line up battery before placing adhesive?

My adhesive moved when I replaced battery on 7 plus but bigger problem was that battery cable did not line up passively with connection point. If you add “prior to placing adhesive on battery try the battery in and place marks on it to line up with landmarks on iphone internal components because otherwise the cable will not attach passively and you will have frustration and may need to start over”

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Lots of videos need to be edited to accommodate this suggestion but with ifixit experts in video splicing it should be easy.

Hi Tim,

Thanks for your feedback! I’ve passed your suggestion along to our guide writing team, and they’re planning on clarifying the instructions in the guide’s text. We also do have a separate guide for replacing iPhone battery adhesive strips (listed in this step of the iPhone 7 Plus Battery Replacement guide), but the team will work on making those instructions more apparent.

I’m not sure yet if editing the videos will be an option, but we’ll do our best to make the instructions as clear as possible!

I appreciate you sharing your experience with us. Happy fixing!
