Sometimes repair shops will use cheaply made screens and use hot glue rather than the required cold press glue which sets over days. Apple Glass is pressed into a the frame using cold-set glue which takes 2 days to set. In contrast aftermarket glass is pressed to an aftermarket frame using hot glue. Give this screen a few knocks and bumps or leave it in the sun to heat up then the frame will give way. Where possible we recommend users to pay a little extra and use a Screen Fixed certified Apple part.

If your phone has a bent frame and a new screen is installed, it is only a matter of time before the screen will pop out. Often times when people drop their phone, the damage caused is a bent frame.  A new frame or a frame straightening/bending at your local Screen Fixed store is required to prevent this from happening again. We’re pro’s at straightening your iPhone frame – we have a special jig.

A swollen battery can also cause iPhone screens to lift from the frame as well. This is a potentially dangerous situation as a swollen battery is damaged and could eventually explode or flash. If this is a regular occurrence, you may be using a cheap charger someplace. Cheap chargers do not have a limiter on them and will overcharge your battery causing it to swell. As a safety issue, this is a situation that can be repaired by your local Screen Fixed Repair Expert.
