This kit fails completely, the ts1 pentalobe screwdriver is the wrong size (too big) to unscrew the two screws on the bottom of an iphone making it useless.
The reviews on this are not clear, but I can report from experience that this kit opens the iPhone 5s with no trouble. The nice man in the store let me try it before I bought it and it worked! The pentalobular driver takes out the two little screws either side of the lightning connector, you use the suction cup to *gently* pull the bottom of the screen forwards and when there is a tiny gap, you use the spudger to *gently* lever it up. Nice one!
I got hot chocolate in my iPhone 4 and it started playing up. This kit opened it perfectly and I was able to remove the speaker assembly and the charger socket assembly easily. Look at iFixit for instructions and photos. I also bought a can of Servisol air in Maplins. I cleaned the contacts with surgical spirits and cotton buds from Boots. My phone works perfectly now. A tweezers would be handy, one with a really fine tip, because the driver isn't magnetised I used Blue Tack to hold the screws to the driver for reassembly.
As of Jan 31st 2014, the pentalobe 5 point tip (TS1, 0.8mm) fits the iPhone 4S dock connector screws just fine. They let me try the fit in the shop and it also works at home(!). Be confident that you can get the iPhone 4S case open with this tool set.
Also not compatible with iPhone 4...
I bought this as my screen had popped out on my 5c. The pentalobe screwdriver is too big for the screws on the 5C, although does fit and remove the screws on my old iphone 4.
I dont tend to write reviews but incase it helps, I went and bought this and can confirm fits iPhone 4S and 5. Didn't check on 4 but safe to assume it does. Pack does as it says. Hope this helps someone.
Useless for an iPhone 4S even though it states it has the "new 5 point TS1Screwdriver" as it doesn't fit the dock connector screws, the driver head is far too large. Specifically went to local store for this item so not best pleased
