There’s a lot to love when it comes to Apple’s iPhone lineup, but the company’s smartphones have never been class leaders when it comes to battery life. To make matters worse, smartphone battery performance always takes a hit over time as charge cycles take their toll. Sometimes things go wrong though, and an iPhone’s battery life starts going south much sooner than expected.

If your iPhone 6 is new and under warranty, Apple will run some tests and likely replace your battery for free. If you’ve somehow voided your warranty or down the road when your phone is out of warranty, you may have to pay to replace a bad battery. As it turns out, however, replacing your iPhone 6’s battery yourself might not be as difficult as you think, and you might be able to save some money that way.

Writing at Forbes, Antony Leather has put together a nice detailed guide that explains how to replace your iPhone 6 battery yourself. The step-by-step guide includes links to all the tools you’ll need to buy, and it also has several pictures that will help you along the way.

Of course, it goes without saying that opening your iPhone for any reason, let alone to replace internal components, will void your warranty. Also, if you haven’t worked with electronics before this might not be the best idea.
