iPhone 12 mini073-00290-A | 4© 2022 Apple Inc. All rights reserved.IntroductionSoftware toolsA System Configuration step may be required at the end of your repair. System Configurationis a postrepair software tool that completes the repair for genuine Apple parts. Running SystemConfiguration has a number of purposes that vary based on the part replaced.What SystemConfigurationdoes Why it’s importantTransfers factorycalibration valuesCertain parts like displays, cameras, and ambient light sensors have calibrationvalues that are customized to each individual part during manufacturing.Transferring these values ensures maximum performance and quality aftera repair.Links SecureElement andbiometricauthenticationpartsAfter repair of a logic board or a biometric authentication part (Touch ID orFace ID), linking the biometric sensors to the Secure Enclave on the logic boardis required to ensure device security.Ensures repairintegrityAfter a hardware repair, software checks are performed to ensure repair integrity.Repair integrity means that a genuine Apple part has been correctly installed.Assigns wirelessregionTo comply with regional communications regulations, a wireless region must beassigned to your logic board.Updates firmware Keeping firmware up to date ensures that the device has all the latest securityand performance features.• The heated display removal fixture softens adhesive to allow separation of the display from theenclosure. The fixture is used with a heated display pocket designed for the device’s specificdimensions.• The display press applies the appropriate amount of pressure to secure new adhesive during displayinstallation. The display press is used with a repair tray and display adhesive press plate designed forthe device’s specific dimensions.• The battery press applies the appropriate amount of pressure to secure new adhesive during batteryinstallation. The battery press is used with a repair tray designed for the device’s specific dimensions.Ordering tools and partsYou can learn how to order genuine Apple parts and tools at support.apple.com/self-service-repair.During the purchase process, enter the manual ID VXUZTC to indicate that you’ve read this manualin its entirety and agree that you have the knowledge and experience to perform your intended repair.Tools and partsHardware toolsApple tools are designed to apply the appropriate heat, force, and torque during repairs, and towithstand high-volume professional use.

Batterysafety is the number one concern when repairing a device with a built-in lithium-ion battery.• Only technicians with the knowledge, experience, and tools required to repair electronicdevices should replace a battery.• Improper battery replacement, improper handling of parts, failure to discharge the batterybefore repair, or failure to follow the provided instructions could cause battery overheating,swelling, venting, leaking, or a battery thermal event. These events could result in fire, injury,death, data loss, or damage to the device, parts, or other property.• To avoid these potentially harmful events, follow the battery safety guidelines and work ina safety-focused workspace with the tools listed below. It’s important to be prepared for allpossible outcomes.How to set up a workspace for battery safetyToolsWorkspaces used to repair Apple devices should meet the following criteria:• Nonflammable and electrostatic discharge (ESD)-safe work bench• At least 2 feet away from paper and other combustible materials• Sand container within reach (2 feet) on both sides of the workspace, not above the workspace• Adequate ventilation
iPhone 12 mini073-00290-A | 15© 2022 Apple Inc. All rights reserved.Battery SafetyHow to handle a battery thermal eventAct immediately if you notice any of the following signs of a battery thermal event:A battery thermal event is a rapid chemical chain reaction that occurs inside a battery cell.The energy stored in the battery is released suddenly, which can cause outgassing and fire.A battery thermal event can be triggered by physical damage to the battery, improperreplacement or repair, or temperatures outside the battery’s operating range.Don’t use water or an ABC or carbon dioxide fire extinguisher on a battery thermal event or adevice that is undergoing one. Water and ABC or carbon dioxide fire extinguishers won’t stop thereaction.Do smother the battery or device immediately with plenty of clean, dry sand. Dump the sandall at once. Timing is critical — the faster you pour all the sand, the sooner the reaction willbe contained.Do contact local fire authorities if further assistance is needed.Do leave the room for 30 minutes after the reaction is contained. Ventilate the area. Don’t returnuntil the area is clear of smoke.Do wait 30 minutes before touching the device. Wear the heat-resistant gloves and safety glasseswith side shields to remove the device from the sand.Do wipe the affected area with water first. Then wipe the area with an ESD-safe cleaning solution.Do dispose of the damaged battery or device (including any debris removed from the sand)according to local environmental laws and guidelines.• The lithium-ion battery or a device that contains one begins to smoke or emit sparks or soot.• The battery pouch suddenly and quickly puffs out.• The lithium-ion battery or a device that contains one begins to emit hissing or popping sounds.Warning
iPhone 12 mini073-00290-A | 16© 2022 Apple Inc. All rights reserved.Battery Safety• Disconnect all external cables.• Remove all cases and covers.• Turn on the flashlight from the Lock Screen, in Control Center, or by asking Siri. Wait until the devicehas turned off and the flashlight is no longer illuminated.How to handle batteriesThe flashlight produces heat. Keep the iPhone in a well-ventilated area while the flashlightis illuminated.CautionFully discharge the battery before you begin a repair. A discharged battery is less susceptible to abattery thermal event. If you can’t determine the battery level, don’t repair the device.WarningPerform the following steps to discharge the battery:• To avoid noxious fumes or a battery thermal event, don’t puncture, strike, or crush a lithium-ionbattery or a device that contains one.• Keep your workspace clear of foreign objects and sharp materials.• Be careful when using sharp tools near the battery.• Don’t leave loose screws, extra screws, or small parts inside the device.• Don’t use tools that conduct electricity.• Don’t throw or drop the battery.• Don’t expose the battery to excessive heat or sunlight, or temperatures outside the battery’soperating range.• Handle and dispose of waste batteries in accordance with local laws and regulations.Best practices

The glass could break if the iPhoneis dropped on a hard surface, receives a substantial impact, or is crushed, bent, or deformed.Don’t attempt to remove chipped or cracked glass shards.If the iPhone glass is broken, perform the following steps before you begin a repair:1. Put on safety glasses with side shields and the cut-resistant gloves.2. Use a vacuum cleaner to remove glass pieces from your workspace and the iPhone.3. Attach a protective cover to the broken glass to prevent injury or scattering of glass. Each protectivecover has a release liner underneath. Slowly pull the release liner out from under the protective coverwhile pressing the cover onto the enclosure.4. Fold the release liner. Use the shiny side of the release liner to firmly press the protective cover ontothe broken glass and smooth out any air bubbles.5. Wait at least 12 minutes for the bond between the protective cover and the glass to strengthen.6. If the back glass is broken, place the iPhone into the heated display pocket.• Back protective cover• Cut-resistant gloves• Display protective cover• Heated display pocket• Safety glasses with side shields• Vacuum cleaner
