My friend recently broke his iPhone 5. He has broken just the front glass. Everything works very fine: LCD, touch screen, etc…

Is there any possibility to change only the front glass that costs, on eBay, 9.99$? Not whole digitizer with LCD? I've not found any video with this.


The iPhone 5's front glass is part of the LCD screen, not as in the iPhone 4 where you could only change the back glass (I am almost sure that the front glass in iPhone 4/4S was also separate from the screen).

Therefore, must change the whole screen.

    The front glass on the 4/4S was separate from the screen, so you could change that as well. – Emil Feb 28 '13 at 15:57
