A few iFixit guides that should be changed

For example iPhone 5 and 6 series charger port replacements.

Some advise that you remove the logic board or the battery to remove the charging dock.

But in reality they are not required to be removed and is not necessary. Especially the battery as it's difficult to remove in the first place.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

We've been watching the feedback on those guides and are discussing the necessary changes while taking into account what's convenient versus what will do the least harm. It looks like our initial assessments were incorrect for some of these devices and we're in the process of determining what to change and where.

The iP4/4s 30-pin guide is also overcomplicated. I had to remove mine for inspection due to some dock connection issues. You only need to remove the back cover, disconnect the battery, remove the speaker and then the connector can be removed.
