Keep your iPhone in top form with one of these repair kits
If you own any electronics, you should have a repair kit around for small repair jobs. It’ll save you money, and you can learn your way around the phone. If you’re even more independently-minded, you could even use one for bigger jobs like repairing your iPhone’s screen or replacing a battery. Any of these kits will help you with tasks, both large and small.
Ready and able
Xool 80 in 1 Magnetic Driver set
This 80-piece tool set includes a magnetic driver with 56 swappable bits, as well as several other essential tools for repairing your iPhone. This includes guitar pick-looking spudgers for prying front and back panels off, tweezers for delicately removing small pieces, and anti-static cords to prevent shocks.
EEEKit Precision 45 in 1 Maintenance Kit
This kit comes in a rigid case for increased protection. The screwdriver can be extended with both solid and flexible driver extensions depending on the job you need to perform, as well as secondary drivers.
Just the basics
SCANDITECH Repair Kit
This is a relatively bare bones repair kit. Instead of one screwdriver with a swappable head, this kit features multiple fixed drivers over varying styles and sizes, a spudger, a suction cup, tweezers, and more.
So many bits
Gocheer Mini Screwdriver Set
Gocheer’s Mini Screwdriver Set has 115 pieces, including dozens of swappable screwdriver bits, tweezers, spudgers, and flexible and rigid driver extensions. It comes in a hardshell case for increased durability when taking it with you.
Carry it with you
GANGZHIBAO Electronics Repair Tool Kit
This 90-piece tool kit has all the basic tools that you’ll need to repair most common electronics, from the newest iPhone to your custom-built PC. The screwdriver bits are stainless steel and magnetic, while ESD-coated tweezers help prevent static shock when removing delicate parts.
Kaisi 139 in 1 Repair Tool Kit
You’ve got 139 pieces in this kit, ready for either electronic repair or home improvement. Alongside the standard selection of screwdriver bits, spudgers, and tweezers, you also a small knife, brush, ruler, and cleaning cloths for ancillary tasks.
ROADTEC Mini Precision Screwdriver Set
The Roadtech Mini repair kit can extend the screwdriver up to 105mm with its flexible extension shaft, as well as a magnetic metal extender. The set comes in an easy-to-store carrying case so you can easily throw it in your bag as you hit the road.
Johncase 18-Piece Repair Tool Kit
Not as comprehensive as most of the other sets, Johncase’s repair kit is more like an expanded basics kit, with five colorful fixed screwdrivers, tweezers, an air blower, and a suction cup for removing the display. It also comes with a magnetic plate that hangs onto your screws while they’re out of your device.
Extend and fix
Royace Precision Screwdriver set
This kit is great for repairing your phone, electronics, appliances, and even some general home improvement. It’s a great 119-piece set, complete with a small magnetic pad for storing screws while you work, and it features flexible and hard extenders for the screwdriver for those hard-to-reach spaces in larger electronics and computers.
When purchasing a repair toolkit for your iPhone, you’ll want to get something that has enough tools to handle any of your electronics. You’ll also want something small, portable, and easy to keep track of so you don’t go losing pieces left and right. To that end, I recommend the Xool 80-piece repair kit. It has enough pieces to be useful for any repair, but not so many that you’ll start losing track of them.
You can also pick up the ROADTEC Mini Repair Kit. It has 115 pieces, a more robust driver handle than the Xool, and a heavy-duty carrying case so that will keep your tools protected.
