[Instructions] Replacing Apple Watch glass
Despite Jony Ive's words about how flawless the design of the Apple Watch is, no one is immune from the problems associated with the careless handling of gadgets. Only 3 months have passed since the start of sales of watches, but already during this time it was possible to collect statistics on requests from users who need Apple Watch repair. As expected, the protective glass was the most exposed to unpleasant collisions with a brutal environment, as is the case with the iPhone and iPad.

Our friends and colleagues, specialists from the ModMac service center, showed how the process of replacing the clock display can be carried out, since they have already been contacted with this breakdown more than once.

Next, we clean the watch case from the remnants of adhesive tape. In order for the new screen to sit securely on the case, it is important to remove all remnants of the factory tape.

We press the screen around the perimeter for more uniform contact of the adhesive tape with the surface - you're done!
