    Default Where to buy OEM replacement parts? Notably the screen assembly and the battery

    I believe these two are the most replaced part of an iPhone, the screen and the battery. Anyone know where I can buy the OEM part? not aftermarket?

    Thanks.

    You cannot purchase OEM parts. Apple suppliers do not make these available. All you can purchase are third party parts.

    From what I've heard too, the iPhone 5 parts are still kind of difficult to get, much less at a cheaper parts rate...my buddy does iPhone and iPad repair on the side and he said since release, parts are not anywhere near as common and are still premium price, even to most dealers.

    Thank you all. If that's the case, I guess my only option is to go to Apple for repair? Anyone know how much they quote a screen repair and their turn around time?

    As for those experience with non OEM part (especially the LCD), is the glass also made of Gorilla Glass? How does the battery perform vs OEM?



    I google 'iphone 5 oem battery' and this link shows up on the very top. Is this truly OEM?

    Thanks.

    Try this site. Probably gonna be your best bet -

    Boom right here get ya self a gold one haha.

    Go to LCD screens on the left then select apple. Or just use the search bar. Keep in mind this is an over seas supplier so shipping takes about 2 weeks. They're good though.

    Thanks, iRy757. It looks like it's not possible to buy OEM LCD, but OEM battery is possible? From the link I post and your link, both claims OEM battery but both do not claim OEM LCD...

    Hi,

    I had replaced my iPhone 4 screen using s third party screen.

    Now, when I updated the firmware to the latest version, the phone stopped working.

    Is this normal ? Does the firmware update process check for original parts and Third party parts ?

    Any input is highly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Pugal
