Vor der Demontage des iPhones entlade die Batterie auf unter 25%. Eine geladene lithium-Ionen Batterie kann Feuer fangen und/oder explodieren, wenn sie beschädigt wird.
  • Vor der Demontage des iPhones entlade die Batterie auf unter 25%. Eine geladene lithium-Ionen Batterie kann Feuer fangen und/oder explodieren, wenn sie beschädigt wird.

  • Schalte dein iPhone ab, bevor du mit der Demontage beginnst.

  • Entferne die beiden 3,6 mm Pentalobe Schrauben neben dem Lighting Connector.

When reconnecting be VERY careful not to over tighten. The connectors on the screen that these 3.6mm Pentalobe screws lock with are notorious for breaking off

Blair Tryba - Antwort

what do i do if ive managed to tighten them too hard and now they wont come off?

Before opening the phone, I gently warmed it using a buckwheat heating pad. This made removal of the adhesive strips (steps 20 to 24) easy.

Howard Bales - Antwort

Exactly what I did as well, the gently warming made the adhesive removal work like a charm. The heat as well help to lift the screen easily, no need for the prying tools for me to open te phone.

For the adhesive removal just pull it slowly to the bottom of the phone and keep in under tension.

On reassembly, turn on the phone after getting all connectors back in place to verify all is working fine before putting all screws back in their spot.

Maarten Vergauwen -

I put mine back together but mine looks very different than this one. Why is it that when I make a call I cannot hear through the ear piece and have to put it on speaker. Also my screen doesn't go black when my face touches it

Bailey Wilson - Antwort

Hey Bailey, which repair were you attempting? Is it possible you have a 6s, or maybe a 6 Plus? You may have better luck with faster troubleshooting if you post in our Answer Forum!

Sam Lionheart -

See its a long time ago you had this issue. You can try to remove the cable from front camera/sensor/earpiece from the motherboard port and gently push it back on. All the problems you relate to is thru the same cable. If this dont solve your problem, check if the earpiece is correctly placed onto the polarity poles, and that the proximity sensor is lying right down into the corresponding socket. If something is blocking the sensor, yeah then the screen wont turn on/off when you put it onto your ear.

Kenneth Hilstan -

You only need 000 Screwdriver for ALL!

Tom Long - Antwort

If you skip to STEP 36, you’ll see that you’ll need a STANDOFF SCREWDRIVER BIT to be able to get all the way to Step 39 and remove the antenna. Read through the comments, and you’ll see how frustrated people have gotten since my kit didn’t include the Standoff screwdriver, and I had to dig around for and carefully use a flathead, which took a very long time. If you can’t get that Standoff screw off, you’ll end up with a partially disassembled iPhone and unable to progress. Make sure you have this tool before you proceed.

Brian Mojica -

what do i do if all the screws fail to come off and if i don’t have some of the tools like the iSclack

Brandon Kato - Antwort

I see in the preamble that when you replace your logic board, you would lose touch id functionality, so my question is what if you have the homebutton and thus the fingerprint reader for the logic board replacement, would touch id work?

socratesmens - Antwort

The guide for the iPhone6 battery replacement needs to be revised. There are a couple of issues.

1) While the battery cover has two screws, they are different lengths. Since they are very small, it can be hard to see the difference (until one tries to screw the smaller one into the longer hole). The video needs to mention this.

2) The application of the adhesive strip if very different from what is mentioned. Also, there is a “one piece plastic” applique, and it is very unforgiving. The video should show this process in more detail.

I believe the attention to this detail would help folks correctly install their iPhone 6 batteries, and with the recent Apple disclosed battery problem, would continue to show that iFixit is very committed to the end-user.

Gary Long - Antwort

Please reconsider this repair!

Before you remove any screws, please consider taking your part to a local repair pro and asking them to install it. The many cables connecting the screen assembly to the body of the iPhone are unruly and hard to reconnect. I knicked a cable and thus rendered the entire assembly and repair unfixable. I consider myself capable and tech savvy, but it’s too easy to make a tiny mistake and ruin your phone.

Bruce Coriell - Antwort

I felt a bit silly getting stuck at the end of a long repair, unable to screw one of these last screws back in. What worked was gently pinching the phone above and below the screw, to make sure the screen and back were perfectly aligned.

Matt D - Antwort

Apple edits posts on their Communities website that link to this fix page justifying as follows:

“We’ve edited your post because following the procedures at the site you provided may lead to damage to the user’s device.”

What is certain is that following Apple Support’s advice of resetting our phones again and again never works whereas this fix works. Apparently Apple does not want people to know that their hardware fails and can be fixed, because then they would need to explain why they don’t offer neither the fixing service nor the fixing advice by directing us to this website.

Brice - Antwort

Before you get started, I suggest you confirm you are replacing the correct camera. If you are thinking of a camera, the front is the side of the device with the main lens. On an iPhone this is actually known as the rear facing camera. Once the phone is disassembled your orientation can be distorted and it is not that hard to fail to realize your are replacing the wrong camera. Doh!

William Miller - Antwort

I found it very useful to use a magnet sheet when doing these repairs. I use electrical tape or a sharpie to make a grid, and place each micro screw in a separate box on the grid.

I work directly over the magnet sheet, so that if something drops I have a better chance at not losing it.

If you do lose a screw, go over the work area with a fridge magnet. It will pick it up if it hasn’t popped too far away.

  • Die nächsten drei Schritte zeigen die Benutzung des iSclack, ein gutes Werkzeug um das iPhone 6 sicher zu öffnen, welches wir allen empfehlen, die mehr als eine Reparatur durchführen. Wenn du den iSclack nicht benutzt, überspringe die nächsten 3 Schritte und folge einer anderen Methode

  • Wenn der Abstandshalter aus Plastik noch in der Mitte des iSclack ist, entferne diesen jetzt – er ist nicht benötigt für größere Smartphones wie das iPhone 6.

    • Schließe den Griff des iSclack, um die Saugnapf-Zange zu öffnen.

There was only one suction cup in my kit. Why show the need for two if ifixit provides only one?

Lisa Klitses - Antwort

Do Not Worry. The Islack comes seprate. This guide shows you how to remove the front screen with a normal suction cup.

Owen -

I found that the single suction cup from the kit worked very well. It didn’t take that much force to separate the front panel from the phone. I think any suction cup that you are able to get a firm grip on will probably work as well. There isn’t any adhesive holding the front panel in. It just snaps in and out. If you have a cracked screen and no screen protector, it may be hard to get a good suction seal. If that’s the case, someone else here suggested applying clear tape to the front glass to get a good surface for applying the suction cup. In my case, I already had a screen protector that was still intact so the suction cup sealed easily.

fiftysomething - Antwort

  • Platziere das untere Ende deines iPhone zwischen den Saugnäpfen.

    • Positioniere den oberen Saugnapf direkt über (aber nicht auf) dem Home Button und drücke ihn gegen das Display.

  • Öffne den Griff um die Zange zu schließen. Platziere die Saugnäpfe mittig und drücke Sie kräftig gegen die Ober- und Unterseite des iPhones.

Kommentar hinzufügen

  • Halte dein iPhone gut fest und schließe den Griff des iSclack, um die Zange zu öffnen. Die Saugnäpfe heben dabei die Display Einheit von der Rückseite des Gerätes.

  • Das iSclack Öffnungswerkzeug wurde entwickelt, um dein iPhone genau so weit zu öffnen, dass die Teile getrennt werden können, aber keine Kabel beschädigt werden.

  • Löse die Saugnäpfe von deinem iPhone.

  • Überspringe die nächsten drei Schritte und fahre fort mit Schritt 8.

The iSclack opened the iPhone 6 with little effort. I could have given even less opening pressure than I did. Fantastic tool. Worth the investment.

Tim Dougherty - Antwort

It's never mentioned anywhere that with iSclack even if you save the cables, glass easily detach from plastic frame. When you ri-assembly the phone, this will involve a glass not perfectly adherent to the body. In my opinion is better if you help yourself with a spudger to lift frame from rear case when you are using the iSclack.

marco bigoni - Antwort

Holy cow this tool made it so much easier than a spudger and didn't damage anything. Totally worth the investment.

Fratelli '85 - Antwort

Really need to get one of these. so much easier then the basic type.

Richard W - Antwort

  • Wenn du keinen iSclack zur Verfügung hast, verwende einen Saugnapf, um die Display Einheit anzuheben:

    • Presse den Saugnapf über dem Home Button gegen das Display.

    • Überprüfe, ob der Saugnapf auch wirklich richtig sitzt.

This is nearly impossible on a screen that is shattered

Erik Madsen - Antwort

You can put clear tape over it. it works.

Owen -

Try putting a strip of packing tape on the screen. That will make the surface smooth and help keep the suction.

Joanna - Antwort

John, your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying. ;-)

TimD -

Argh!! Don’t put the suction cup over the home button to pull. While it works, it also breaks the screen at the weak point below the home button. Ask me how I know.

-Tom

tombuy - Antwort

  • Halte das iPhone mit einer Hand fest und ziehe am Saugnapf, um die Display Einheit vom hinteren Gehäuse zu trennen.

    • Nimm dir Zeit und übe konstante, starke Kraft auf den Saugnapf aus. Die Display Einheit sitzt im Vergleich zu anderen Geräten sehr fest.

  • Heble den hinteren Gehäuseteil mit einem Plastik Opening Tool vorsichtig von der Display Einheit weg, während du weiterhin am Saugnapf ziehst.

  • Durch einige Clips ist die Display Einheit am hinteren Gehäuse befestigt. Womöglich musst du die Display Einheit deshalb gleichzeitig mit Plastik Opening Tool und Saugnapf bearbeiten, um sie zu lösen.

Pulling up on the suction cup helped get me started, but what worked for me was pulling up gently while sliding the plastic prybar gently along the seam towards the top of the phone (on both sides), and it came open without having to put excess pressure on the suction.

lauren carroll - Antwort

Same here, just open the gap a little with the suction cup and then use the opening tool on both sides.

Tobias - Antwort

Along with the suction cup I used some Command adhesive strips to hold the bottom of the phone to a workbench as they easily pull/stretch away when you need to remove them!

Dion Sosa - Antwort

That’s a very clever idea, thank you!

Megan Telliano -

Suction cup pictured here is the older version (with ring). I have one from my previous battery replacement on iPhone 5 and used that instead. The new one (gray with blue handle) kept on popping off. Overall, popping out screen was not as hard as it seems with these instructions, but do proceed with caution.

youmingc - Antwort

Dion's idea to use removable adhesive strips was great, even better, use it to attach the iPhone to a clipboard. This will allow for a sort of Lazy Susan function while you work. I also used adhesive strips to attach my iPhone box to the clipboard as well and used that as a back rest (with rubber band) for the screen as pictured in steps below. This allowed me to very comfortably skip steps 13-19 as others have commented.

Adam - Antwort

The new suction cup (plastic handle) is not so suctiony. Prepare for this thing to pop off a couple of times when opening the case.

Chet Seidel - Antwort

Be very careful because it feels that it holds very tight but with the last pull it can fly away.

Kristaps Grinbergs - Antwort

Be very careful when you pull up the display! Do not keep your other hand on the display surface or you can broke it!

Luke Man - Antwort

I did all the suggestions here and it just wasn’t moving until I repositioned the suction cup up over the home button for more leverage. It finally came up enough to slip the plastic opening tool under the edge.

Alan Derrick - Antwort

  • Ziehe an der Kunststoff-Noppe, um die Vakuumversiegelung am Saugnapf zu lösen.

  • Entferne den Saugnapf von der Display Einheit.

Kommentar hinzufügen

  • Öffne das iPhone, indem du das Home Button Ende der Display Einheit vom hinteren Gehäuse wegklappst und dabei die Oberkante des Gerätes als Scharnier verwendest.

    • Einige Clips entlang der Oberkante der Display Einheit bilden ein nicht durchgängiges Scharnier.

    • Während des Wiederzusammenbaus, lege die Clips gerade unter der oberen Kante des hinteren Gehäuses an. Fahre dann mit der Display Einheit nach oben, bis seine obere Kante bündig mit der des hinteren Gehäuseteils ist.

It's not clear from the instructions but it is shown correctly in the pictures: when the front panel assembly is just open (at a small angle with the rear case) pull the top edge clips out of the rear case to slightly separate the two components, then swing the front panel assembly away from the rear case. I assume not doing so would potentially damage the connecting ribbon and/or the alignment clips. Just a guess...

ethanlust - Antwort

Yes! I wish I had read this before working on my phone. I read the instructions as they are and slowly started to open the case. This is when I heard my screen crack. So in the future, slowly open and when you are about 40% of the way, pull the screen forward so that the top clips pull away (we are talking a cm at most). Sigh just ordered a new screen

Albert -

Ein Tipp zum Zusammenbau: Das Display ca. in 45 Grad halten und vorsichtig an die obere Kante des Gehäuses drücken, bis es bündig und glatt anliegt.

Dann das Display langsam und vorsichtig anklappen und die Clips von oben nach unten festdrücken.

SAS - Antwort

This entire process went smooth. Final step of re-assembly , the assembly does not seat into the framing. The white gasket seats on one side not the the volume button side. Alignment looks good. How much pressure does one apply on the reassembly?

Bruce Fournier - Antwort

My problem is the front panel does not want to joint together with the rear panel… it feel like the front is too big but it look perfect but does not clip in place… Help…

Tony Chicoine - Antwort

same problem, in the final step, the screen does not fit entirely. it looks like the size is not 100% correct, but 99%… one side of the case stays open…

Andrea Andreoli - Antwort

Same thing here, with a new screen it doesn’t fit quite right during re-assembly. It sits just a little bit higher and doesn’t look seated.

Adam Carl - Antwort

Some people have noted that the screen doesn’t seat properly on the case. Here’s how I solved it:

The issue is that rectangular brackets on the back of the display aren’t latching with the corresponding clips in the base. I think the brackets are missing the gap between the spring plate and bracket with the latching bumps on it on the base. Here’s my solution:

Position the top of the display slightly below the top of the case so the clips on the back top of the display start to engage with the phone case. Important: don’t push it all the way up!

Now press both sides of the top part of the display until the display seats on the back. Make sure both sides are flush with the case.

Repeat for the middle of the display. The bottom of the display will remain bent up because it will interfere with the bottom edge of the case.

Now push/slide the display up so the top of the display lines up with the top of the case. The bottom should then snap into the base, and the display should be flush with the case all round.

nigel - Antwort

  • Öffne das Display bis ca. 90 Grad und lehne es gegen etwas, damit es abgestützt ist, während du an dem Mobiltelefon arbeitest.

    • Zur Not hilft eine ungeöffnete Getränkedose.

  • Befestige das Display mit einem Gummiband, während du arbeitest. Das verhindert ein ungewolltes Dehnen der Displaykabel.

A picture is worth a thousand words! This idea at Step 9 is perfect and you can definitely do the entire rest of the battery replacement WITHOUT having to disconnect the display from the rear case. Just leave it secured exactly as shown in this picture and you're good to go. I just completed the repair and the most difficult part was just lining up the new battery connector! Excellent instructions and generally EASY repair because this step was so helpful!

Ryan - Antwort

I did the same. Made the work go so much smoother!

dcommins - Antwort

I do NOT recommend leaving the display and the rear case connected during this repair. If you run into any resistance removing the battery, or slip in the least removing it, you risk tearing the ribbon cables that attach the two pieces. I did and now I've got to replace the Front Camera and Sensor Cable. Sadness.

Ergolad - Antwort

I'm going to try it this way, because the odds of damaging the connector during removal seem greater than the risk of ripping the cable, however, I plan to cradle the phone in the "L" of simple, sheet metal bookend, and secure it using blue painter's tape. Seems more stable.

bobcloninger - Antwort

If you do this step carefully- (rubber band the front panel, and carefully peel away the battery adhesive) you can SKIP 13 THRU 19!

Larry House - Antwort

Rubber band and a large can of soup held the front in place. Go slow, steady firm pressure. Take the vibrator out though. Makes pulling the adhesive tape out much easier. Great video and written instructions!

Sherman Homan - Antwort

todd adelman - Antwort

I decided to do the repair on my iPhone 6 without detaching the screen. I ended up screwing two pieces of 3/4” x 3” x 6” wood together at right angles. I used 2 rubber bands to secure the screen to the vertical piece and 1 rubber band to secure the base to the horizontal piece. One of the two adhesive strips broke and I had to really work to get the battery out. The rubber bands held everything together nicely. The wood pieces were slightly wider than the phone which made it easy to hold everything together while I was working the adhesive strip out.

brian - Antwort

Mine worked great install went perfect. Was like a new phone… for a couple months. Phone may be failing for other reasons, but there’s a ghost image in the shape of the battery in the display now. Very strange. The ifixit kit did give life to it for a while though.

smahar - Antwort

Hey Smahar! If you still have your tools, I’d recommend opening your phone up to make sure the battery isn’t swollen. If it’s pressing against the screen, it’s possible that is the case. If it is swollen, I highly recommend you replace it, it can be dangerous to leave it in place.

David Pobuda - Antwort

ok well what exactly does 2.2 mm and 3.2 mm mean if a #000 is needed? why even mention those numbers?

Cory Berends -

Those are the screw lengths. They’re important to mention so that you don’t put the longer screw in the wrong place. If you start mixing up screws, you can end up with permanent logic board damage.

Jeff Suovanen -

I replace the antenna in the upper left-hand corner an in the bottom middle with the lightning connector because After disassemble it completely i lose my ability to have Cellular. After i replace both antennas i can find i nevertheless have cellular. anybody an idea ?

kupies2011 - Antwort

With the phillips screwdriver included in the repair kit I cannot unscrew any of the interior screws because it is not the right size even though according to these comments all of the screws are #000 and on the product listing it says that the screwdriver I got is #000. Any suggestions?

Wilson Styres - Antwort

Sounds like you need to adjust your technique. The included PH000 driver works fine; I’ve done many many phones with it.

Jeff Suovanen -

Upon reassembly I found the Red 2.2 mm screw won't seat. Is it possible it sheared off? The Orange 3.2 is solid in both holes but 2.2 doesn't securely fit in either.. Should I just leave off the 2.2?

smcgreg - Antwort

My phone was missing this screw also!

Gail Starr -

Duh, had the cover on the wrong way. Switched it around and the screw fit. (:

smcgreg - Antwort

When I insert the 3.2 mm screw... The phone shuts down, very weird because am not seeing what could cause this short...

Juan Monge - Antwort

I’m having the same issue. Thinking about just leaving that screw out. Did you ever get your’s working?

Cavell Blood -

Using the Phillips 000 screwdriver included in the kit, I am able to remove the 3.2 mm screw, but not the 2.2 mm one.

Dan Solovay - Antwort

None of the screwdriver heads in this kit are big enough for these screws!!! I now have an open iphone and i have to go to the store to buy a different screwdriver..I do not recommend this

Elaine Eason - Antwort

I was unable to unscrew the 2.2mm screw with the provided screwdriver. I was able to unscrew the 3.2mm screw but not the 2.2mm

Jameison Martin - Antwort

I'm stuck in the same boat here. The one screw came out no problem but the second isn't catching at all.

Brian Adams - Antwort

Stuck with Jameison and Brian here... 2.2mm won't catch with all three provided screwdrivers.

Matthijs Rog - Antwort

Agreed, the screwheads included in this kit didn’t work for me either. Fortunately my own toolbox has an appropriate screwdriver…. Seeing as how we are paying for this kit so we don’t need to purchase extra tools, iFixit should really include screwheads that actually work!

Priscilla Cheng - Antwort

When putting everything back together, I took care of steps 10-12 (or, more accurately 12-10) after reinserting the SIM (so between steps 20 & 19). It was easier to do before dealing with reconnecting the screen.

dhcohen67 - Antwort

why do i buy a kit from you guys but you don’t provide the necessary tools for unscrewing

i dont have any screwdrivers at home the 2.2mm simply wont come off its ridiculous now i just have an open phone

Michael Amara - Antwort

I had to use Phillips #00 for the 3.2mm (orange) and #0 for the 2.2mm (red). The #000 screw driver came in the toolkit is useless on both screws so I had to go out and buy new ones from a hardware store…

Tung-wei Lin - Antwort

My two screws are the same diameter - 1.1mm, taking a Philips PH000 driver. However the one toward the middle is 3.3mm long, the one nearer the side is 2.2mm long.

Alastair Lack - Antwort

So my kit didn’t come with the right screw driver, I should have read the comments first before buying.

My iPhone 6 battery connector bracket has 3.2mm which the PH000 works. But the 2.2mm didn’t work with included Y000.

What screw driver do I need for the 2.2 mm screw??

John Palaganas - Antwort

The heads on both of those screws are identical. The included PH000 is the correct driver. There are no Y000 screws anywhere in the iPhone 6.

Jeff Suovanen -

The Phillips in the repair kit worked fine. I did 2 phones with it.

Eric Craumer - Antwort

Just a followup to all the comments above for anyone who is confused: the drivers included in the repair kit work fine, assuming you know how to use a screwdriver correctly in the first place. There are quite a few folks who never learned, and that’s nothing to be ashamed of—in fact it’s common enough that we made a guide for it. Those bits were designed first and foremost to work with iPhone screws and have been extensively, extensively tested. You may come across stubborn screws or strip the heads if you’re not careful, and maybe that’s why some folks here are having trouble. In the very rare event that you actually received a malformed bit of some kind due to a manufacturing defect (which should be clear just from looking at it up close), reach out to customer service and they’ll get you squared away.

Jeff Suovanen - Antwort

I just completed the battery replacement and I too found that the PH000 did not sit properly in either the 3.2 or 2.2 mm screws. Using a magnifying glass it seemed that the PH000 driver bit did not sufficiently fill the space of the screw. I happen to have the iFixit Pro Kit and used the PH00 driver bit instead, and this seemed to fill the space of both screws much better leading to successful extraction and replacement. My lack of experience with phone repair may have been a factor, but it seemed at least for my particular phone the PH00 was the proper driver bit for these two screws.

Jimmy Doi - Antwort

The PH000 screwdriver I received cannot remove the smaller screw…

Michael Pesenti - Antwort

So I spend 34 bucks on a kit of tools to repair my phone and they send the wrong sized screwdriver to get the battery cover off. Awesome. I can get the larger screw out but not the smaller one. What a waste of time and money.

Michael Pesenti - Antwort

@michael_pesenti Those screw heads are the same; the screws are just different lengths. If you have the right driver for one, you have the right driver for both, unless someone put your iPhone together with the wrong screws.

Jeff Suovanen -

@jeffsu

Nope. Actually turns out that ifixit just sent me a defective screwdriver that only was poorly sized and only managed to catch one of the screws. I had to order a new PH000 Screwdriver on Amazon and it got the screws out instantly and I was able to repair my phone.

Michael Pesenti - Antwort

I used the “Maximum” precision set from Canadian Tire and the PH#00 works nicely for both these screws.

Matt - Antwort

Screws in mine required different size drivers also - maybe because refurbished? But have had the same probs on mbps also. Felt silly but followed Jeff’s suggestion to look at the screwdriver best practice guide and realised I was stripping screws by using too small a driver - have a couple either side of the suggested size and use the largest one that catches - I mainly used PH#0 & 00, though some screws needed #000, and there wasn’t any consistency to which screws needed which driver.

I skipped steps 13-19 and just left the front panel rubber banded while I removed the battery. I just made sure to be careful while removing the adhesive strips so as not to move around the body of the phone too much. Skipping the steps made the whole process much faster and easier.

Tonima Chaudhury - Antwort

I wish I had done that.

Gail Starr -

Thanks for this awesome tip. Made the replacement go much smoother - saved me from removing all those other screws. I also recommend watching the ifixit battery adhesive strip video before proceeding with step 21.

Andy Milne -

Me too, no need to detach the screen (when you take care),

Tom Long -

In trying to replace my antenna flex cable, I attempted to skip steps 13-19 but eventually gave up around step 31/32 as I simply didn’t have the access I needed - the space was just too cramped with the screen still attached and I was afraid I would break something. If you’re a novice, don’t have good lighting and a magnifying glass, etc. you may just want to go ahead and perform 13-19. (Yes it will take extra time of course.)

Perrin Haley -

I also skipped steps 13-19 after reading the first comment.

I skipped those steps too and was successful. Thanks for this tip!

jaksbackpack - Antwort

Can disconnecting the battery connector while power is on ruin the backlight? Or can disconnecting the power connector at a different stage ruin the back light?

mitch Toler - Antwort

You should power down the phone before disconnecting the battery. That said, the backlight should be fine. A blown backlight circuit is most commonly caused by disconnecting the display when the battery is still connected.

Jeff Suovanen -

I did open the lcd without disconnecting the battery and my lcd wouldn't working

Reza I. Permana -

Thanks for that tip Tonima! This is another confirmation that skipping steps 13-19 worked out great!

As an extra measure, in addition to leaving the front panel rubber banded in it's open, vertical position (I secured mine to a can of beans) and being very careful and controlled when removing the adhesive strips; before using the suction cup to separate the front panel from the rear case, I had secured the back side of the rear case to my working surface (kitchen table) with a strip of folded over duct tape (creating double sided tape). Such might not have been necessary as I held the rear case with one hand while removing the adhesive strips with the other, though it just felt safer having the rear case (as well as the front panel) well secured in place to help assure that I didn't accidentally cause any damage to those very fragile looking cables that were left connected, by any possible movements of either of the iPhone's halfs during the pulling to remove the adhesive strips.

Russ Levey - Antwort

It happened to me, by prying the battery connector with another tool I broke part of the socket off the board. However, by placing it exactly back in place the connector could be placed correctly and it works. Lucky.

Udo Schuehle - Antwort

I'd like a little more explanation on how to re-attach the battery connector. But in the end I lined it up and pressed gently down till it snapped into place.

Garret Gray - Antwort

I skipped the steps removing the screen only because I didn't feel confident at all doing this. For someone who is used to electronics I would really suggest removing it because I imagine the whole process would've been easier. If there's a next time, perhaps I'll do that.

Garret Gray - Antwort

The suggestions that recommend skipping step 13-19 apply to some other repair. We replaced the display, and to do so, steps 13-19 are, of course, necessary.

Gabriel Zachmann - Antwort

When replacing the battery you should prepare the cable to sit in exactly as you see it in the picture. I had mine all the way back in (with sticky strips) and had to find a way to fit the cable in with the weird way it bends. Dry fit the battery with cable in place - lesson learned.

Chet Seidel - Antwort

Good idea. All the instructions were great until I got to the last thing- reattaching the battery connector! I like your recommendation to dry fit the connector so you can get the right bend to the connector ribbon first.

Tom Rohrer -

I wish I had seen this also, I feel like this should be in the guide. Mine seems to be working out but I had to force the connector into place a little bit.

Kevin Harvey -

I wish I had seen this first! I also had the issue, now I have a permanent discoloration of the screen where the connector is pushing against the back. Hoping that it doesnt lead to other problems. This site is really lacking on the reassembly steps… shame..

I did my best to connect the battery before adhering it to the battery spot, but the connector doesn’t seem to “click” or otherwise confirm that it is properly positioned. The left side of the connector (closest to the battery) seemed slightly raised, which made me wonder if I had done it correctly. So I’m probably going to have to try using my last adhesive strips to lay it in better to allow for a better connection. I’m also worried that I may have damaged the connection spot. Is there anywhere on here where this is discussed? This is my second battery replacement, but first on this particular phone, which is apparently a refurbished one (and which has a slightly different looking connector cover).

  • Entferne die folgenden fünf Kreuzschlitz Schrauben, mit dem die Abdeckung der Displaykabel befestigt ist:

    • Drei 1,2 mm Schrauben

    • Eine 1,7 mm Schraube

    • Eine 3,1 mm Schraube

  • Eine falsche Platzierung dieser Schrauben führt zu einer permanenten Beschädigung des Logic Boards.

Be careful when replacing the screws, not to accidentally put the 1.7mm screw into the center hole, where the 1.2 screw belongs. This can cause "Long Screw" damage, and render your phone unusable.

damianodessgillett - Antwort

I don't have the magnetic pad but use duct tape face up in a tray. I write the step number and color of the screw on the sticky surface and let the screw stand heads up on the goo. The screw is presented for the driver when reassembling.

griffn - Antwort

Can't stress enough how important it is not to mix up these screws! Using the 1.7mm screw for the lower left fixing will cause "long screw damage" and kill the backlight on the phone. I believe @damianodessgillett made the same point. Wish we could display a small warning message here to be extra careful for future fixers!

kev - Antwort

I use a screw ID technique similar to griffn's; I print out the PDF version of the guide, then Scotch-tape each screw type to the guide at the step where the screw was removed. The screws are then distinguished by size and type at the point where they need to be reinstalled.

girlsrock742 - Antwort

@girlsrock742 - I'm new here, but from what I've seen, questions like yours don't get answered. I have 2 suggestions:

# Be more specific about what your issue is.

# Make sure you're using the right screwdriver. (Get a magnifying glass & make sure the screwdriver fits nicely in the screwhead.) This guide is included in a guide I'm looking at, and my guide has a comment that #000 phillips is required for the battery connector bracket above, not #00 as documented. (That comment did not convey to this guide....)

Good luck!

Nate Schley - Antwort

Nate, you are my hero at the moment! Phillips head screw driver PH000 resolved my issue. Greatly appreciative of your chiming in on this comment! Appreciatively, C.

Carol N -

Thanks to @griffn & @adlerpe! I've updated the tools list to include the magnetic pad, and -- for us infrequent fixers -- I made a note in the intro text to describe the sort of thing you two noted here in place of the mag pad.

Also, to @damianodessgillett & @kev - I've submitted an update to the instructions to add the caution you recommend to the step. Hopefully others will avoid the pain of the Long Screw damage.

I'm so worried I'm going insert the wrong screw. Does anyone have any suggestions to knowing how to properly tell the size of each screw? I bought a screw set and a magnetic pad but still have the same issue. Not knowing the correct placement of each screw. I'd definitely appreciate any help.

Patric - Antwort

Hi Patric! We use a set of calipers to measure our screws, failing that you could use a very fine ruler. If you don't have any kind of measuring equipment, line the screws up on the magnetic mat and sort them by size there. Ideally you only have screws from this step! If you are trying to determine the size of all the screws in this guide, it's probably best to get a real ruler/caliper for the fine distinctions.

Sare -

I can confirm it's not necessary to remove anything other than battery bracket. If you support the screen against something as in the picture, just make sure you hold the iPhone absolutely still with one hand while pulling out the adhesive strips with the other. I also used a small piece of tape to hold the screen in place against the box while I worked.

I am now a very happy customer and am looking forward to another few years life from my awesome iPhone 6!

Matt Whiteley - Antwort

There is no need to do this step. No need to remove these 5 screws. Just make sure the screen is propped up against something strong and this step is unnecessary for the proper removal and re-insertion of battery.

arunhn - Antwort

I left the front panel connected and it was much quicker. But, if you have to wrestle with the battery, it is much safer with the front panel removed. If you have worked on a few phone before, I'd try removing the battery with the front panel connected. If the battery is giving you problems(like if you tear the strips and have to heat the backside), you can always come back to this step.

Joel Horie - Antwort

I strongly recommend you leave the display connectors alone if you can. My battery came out without a fight, but I found the display connectors to be almost tragically delicate, and I had white lines in the display when I booted it. During the subsequent attempts to remedy that situation, things went down hill and now I'm waiting for an entirely new display to try to rescue the phone from repair oblivion.

kevin hekman - Antwort

I also skipped all of the screen-removal steps and had nary a problem. Just rubber band the screen around whatever it is propped against and I believe you'll be fine.

Billy Bob Baler - Antwort

June Beltran -

Remove each screw, tape it to a piece of letter paper, mark what spot it came out of. red, yellow, orange and the 3 reds. This way you can not possibly put them back in the wrong spots.

smahar -

I totally recommend doing this step first before removing the battery connector bracket, it will be much easier and comfortable with the screen out of the way.

Also I recommend drawing the bracket on a piece of paper and place the screws on top of the respective position on the drawing, this way you won't be confused when putting them back.

June Beltran - Antwort

I accidentally lost a 1.2mm screw while doing a screen replacement. Will this make the phone malfunction in anyway after I close it back up or its fine?

Walter White - Antwort

DO NOT DO THIS STEP. It is totally unnecessary to remove the connectors, and they are a really big pain to put back in, and there is risk of damaging them, and it adds a lot of time to the process of replacing the battery. Just securely prop up the front panel, and then if you gently heat the back of the phone when removing the adhesive strips, the battery comes off easily. I could have saved myself about 2 hours and a lot of frustration if I had just left these connectors in. I wish the instructions here would just include this step (connector removal) ONLY IF the battery doesn't come out easily.

J Marr - Antwort

Exactly, just like J, Marr indicates, this step is not necessary. Just make sure you're careful to not move the phone too much, otherwise you can damage the film connectors. Other than that I even heated my phone to remove the adhesive, and thank God, nothing bad happened to it.

Mc Floyd -

It’s only necessary if you’re like me an need to fix the screen or water damage (mine fell in water…)

jacobdanderson -

I do NOT recommend leaving the display and the rear case connected during this repair. If you run into any resistance removing the battery, or slip in the least removing it, you risk tearing the ribbon cables that attach the two pieces.

Heather Best - Antwort

Is it really necessary to remove the front panel at all, can't you just ask a friend to hold it in an upright position while you work on the battery?

Peter - Antwort

I also skipped steps 13 - 19. Just be very careful not to apply to much stress to the connectors in between the screen and the base. For me I also used another box to keep the base from sliding around while removing the battery.

Patrick Reed - Antwort

You cannot skip these steps, of course, when you want to replace the display (which was the kind of repair we did).

When putting the little connectors in place again afterwards, I can recommend to hold the connectors to the display using a little rubber band. That way, they don’t get in the way when you put them in place one by one.

Gabriel Zachmann - Antwort

You SHOULD do the steps of removing the display. I have done battery replacements on several dozen phones. Of the ones I did NOT remove the cables, 2 of them had issues directly related to components related to these cables (front facing camera, earpiece speaker, etc.). Although tedious, I recommend removing these connectors to prevent any short circuit when reconnecting the new battery.

ACMT - 4 years.

jonbessom - Antwort

I skipped this step and just affixed the screen to the Iphone box with a rubber band during replacement. I decided to take this risk to prevent some of the other issues that have been discussed when removing the screen. I understand it is risky because if you slip or need to use any significant force to remove the battery, disaster awaits. On my repair, it worked out fine and I ensured that I took my time and kept the bottom of the phone held to the worksurface.

Sherman Homan - Antwort

I'm noticing some questions I have that others are asking yet no one is answering. You're all talking about the same problem that I find completely pointless. If you skip steps and it works, good for you move on. There are real questions being asked. Someone asked about losing a screw, would that effect anything? You all talk about the importance of having the screws organized, yet don't explain if someone either loses the screws or have them put into the wrong places. Since no one talks about it, I figured it wasn't as important as you all claim it is. Now my phone seems to not want to do anything anymore. Stop arguing with each other about something so miniscule like skipping steps. 40 comments on this part and 5 people actually have real problems but no answers. So, if anyone actually took the time to read this, my questions are; what happens if the screws are put in the wrong order?(other than the obvious long screw damage) and what happens if we put the phone back together without some screws?

Sare - Antwort

@sarery I’m a little puzzled by your question. If you’re not willing to put the screws back in the right place as instructed, despite all the warnings in both the guide and the comments, why would you want to attempt this repair in the first place? But nevertheless I will try to answer. Some screws, if left out, have no noticeable effect. That’s the best you can hope for. Other screws perform a vital function such as providing a path to ground. Some screws are made of nonferrous materials—getting those mixed up can interfere with things like compass functionality. And putting a wrong screw pretty much anywhere can result in cross-threading or component damage. The reason we go to the trouble of providing all these screw markings and measurements is to help you put your phone back together in perfect working order. Which you may still be able to do, if you are careful, and patient. Good luck.

alyssaavaldezz - Antwort

Hi alyssa. Were you able to connect the cables? I am having the same problem

Veronica del Rio -

regarding cable connects - if two of the ribbon cables are not properly overlapped around each other, then it will appear as if cable #2 will need to plug into the closest jack, which is actually for cable#3. Look at the two connectors carefully - they are opposite gender and can't be interchanged.

David Panak - Antwort

This is good advice, and usually the problem people experience here. There is a very specific way the ribbon cables are layered, and if not correct when reassembled, the reach of the cables will cause you to assume which cable goes where and to try to insert the wrong plugs into the wrong sockets. Please do not try to force them. If they don't snap in easily, examine them closely, and you'll see the plugs and sockets are slightly different sizes, with one wider than the other. Better to take care to note how the cables layer during disassembly, or perhaps mark them to avoid this frustration on reassembly.

it is very possible to install flex cables out of order. to most people working on their first screen replacement they do not have the experience to notice that their flex cable connection is different than the dock connection. this causes them to press harder and force the connection into the dock, ruining the connections, if they do not think the they have the cables out of order

Dakota Navarrete - Antwort

I'm with Andrew Midgett. The connectors are just plain different in size and orientation. My phone matches what's shown in the picture above. You can see an example of the replacement part if you search Amazon for "Sanka LCD Touch Screen Digitizer Frame Assembly Full Set Screen Replacement for iPhone 6". And Sanka isn't the only iPhone 6 replacement that looks like that, so no hating on that manufacturer here.

Does this mean that some iPhone 6 phones have one set of connectors and some have a different set? FWIW, the model on the back of my phone says A1549.

PG McLaughlin - Antwort

Update: Searching for iPhone 6S instead of 6 on Amazon, I see lots of replacement screens with connectors that look a lot more like what I have and what's shown in the picture above. (One connector has a horizontal orientation, the other is vertical. I can't be sure whether the pins or dimensions match otherwise.) Any wisdom here?

PG McLaughlin - Antwort

Had the same problem with the correct layering of cable harnesses. Perhaps an additional photo showing the correct layering would be helpful for 1st timers?

William Breen - Antwort

+1 for a photo showing the correct layering and routing of cables. I accidentally routed the home button ribbon above the digitizer ribbon and beneath the power and backlight ribbons. The uneven pressure it put on the digitizer connector after tightening the plate caused my digitizer to not recognize touching the display or made touches appear off center.

drpotter -

For everybody who thinks they can skip these steps I commend you. No way I would have been able to get my battery out - two broken strips - without removing the screen. Re-inserting these cables was not really difficult - once the first one is back in place the rest follow quickly.

Chet Seidel - Antwort

I tried to reconnect these for ages until I watched a video of someone else doing it.

Don’t try to line up the connectors by looking at them with the screen leaning on a soda can, just hold the two halves in each hand and line the first one up by feel. Really. After that it’s plain sailing.

Even with great lighting I couldn’t make this work with the bits on the bench - yet when I picked them up it was really easy to feel them line up. I had all four popped back on in about 60 seconds.

When I was preforming this step, while reassembling, I had to connect the digitizer cable four times. On the last time, before screwing the Front Panel Assembly Cable Bracket on, I reconnected the battery connector and turned my phone on (ensuring that I was careful not to damage any cables!) to ensure that all cables were connected correctly and that the screen was fully functional.

Christopher - Antwort

NO NO NO ! i am a professional iphone repairman and i strongly recommend against using ANY tool to disconnect the flex connectors if u slip or use to much force you will damage the connector and may cause permanent damage to the phones logic board rendering it completely UNrepairable! Instead gently use the edge of your fingernail and pry up and the connectors will usually come off with very little effort .

taylor sparks - Antwort

Fingernails work great as well! However, there's nothing wrong with using a tool, as long as you exercise a little caution. If you've ever seen one of Apple's iPhone service manuals, you'll note that they use the exact same tool as iFixit (Apple calls it a "black stick" and iFixit dubs it a "spudger.")

Jeff Suovanen -

I'm pretty sure ifixit are pros, I used them 4 times to fix phones and no problems with using tools for flex cables.

If you still have white lines after you've tried reconnecting the connectors and power cycling. Just do a hard reset a few more times, let the phone stay on and wait a while. As long as it's not damaged, the lines will fade over the next hour or so. Your phone will be as good as new.

Sergio Midence - Antwort

Re-connecting display data cable was trickiest part for me - my eyes are old! I had to do it a couple of times as the cable had indeed popped off its connector, resulting in a black screen when turned on. Needs lots of patience and good lighting, also helped to have a really good look at plug and socket under magnifying glass to see how they fit together, and to reconnect using finger rather than tool - this helped me feel when I had eventually connected properly.

Trish - Antwort

Followed steps to a “T” - got phone up and running successfully! However, there is a vertical line in the center of the screen that changes color with whatever button is being displayed in the center screen. For example, a dead battery icon shows a red vertical line, acknowledging a blue “OK” button when setting up the phone shows a blue vertical line, etc. Essentially it’s not a black screen or white lines. Could it be that the display data connector is not correctly attached or perhaps a faulty connector?

After reinstallation, I am encountering issues with an area of the screen that is not responding to touch. Everything else works fine.

Anyone have any ideas how I should proceed?

Jonathan Rivera - Antwort

I had the exact same problem. I tried 10-20 times and the screen had vertical lines in the middle and the touch function didn't properly work. Then I discovered the issue. I had damaged the first connector (lcd connector) when reassembling the screen.

What I did was to carefully with a tweezer press the damaged ones in to the correct position. Than I heard a solid "click" when I attached it and I got really hopeful.

I finished with the rest of the connectors and put the bracket and screws back to Place and hit the powerbutton. IT WORKED!

So, look at the first connector with a magnifying glass, the shortest one, closest to the camera. Maybe I got a little lucky when I managed to fix the connector without replacing it. Good luck. I feel your frustration all the way to Sweden.

I had the most issues when reassembling with this step. The plastic tool is a fail in my experience since not enough pressure could be applied using it.

I have found by gently heating the broken screen side with a heat gun or reworker, it makes removing the home button and the connector so much easier to remove with the tip of the spudger and a press on the home button from the front side

darren - Antwort

  • Drücke vorsichtig die linke obere Ecke des Home Buttons hoch, weg vom Display.

  • Drücke den Home Button nicht komplett durch - du musst nur eine Ecke freilegen, damit du den Button mit einem Spudger heraushebeln kannst.

  • Der Membranring ist sehr dünn. Wenn du glaubst, du zerreißt den Button, erwärme ihn leicht (mit einem Haartrockner, iOpener oder einer Heißluftpistole) und versuche es erneut.

I used a hair dryer on this part. It made removing the home button extremely easy. Just take it slow

peterhubner - Antwort

I too used a hair dryer and slow pressure as did Peter. I found that the adhesive would slowly release if I just held a little constant pressure with my finger and waited.

Patrick Langvardt - Antwort

This being my first time I found that this step and the following steps to be the most difficult and time consuming. It required A LOT of patience because the rubber membrane and the adhesive holding the cable really don’t want to release without sufficient heating and I was concerned about overheating the assembly. Using a hair dryer on the slowest setting finally worked.

fiftysomething - Antwort

Cette étape demande vraiment de la patience. J’ai juste attendu en exerçant une faible pression et au bout d’un moment ça s’est décollé.

Il ne faut pas mettre trop de pression et avoir un bon éclairage pour voir l’état de la membrane au fur et à mesure.

Chloé Bossuette - Antwort

  • Am Ende kannst du den Home Button vorsichtig mit einem Spudger heraushebeln.

Don't get in a hurry with the ribbon. Heat and a gradual constant pressure did the trick.

Patrick Langvardt - Antwort

  • Nutze die Spitze eines Spudgers, um vorsichtig das Home Button Kabel vom Kleber zu lösen, der es am Display befestigt.

  • Wenn sich das Kabel nicht einfach entfernen lässt, erwärme den Kleber etwas mit einem iOpener oder Fön. Achte darauf, das Kabel nicht zu beschädigen.

This step really requires patience- I had to heat the area several times and “spudge” from both sides before the cable successfully loosened. Even under a strong magnifying glass, it will look like the middle section with the tiny circuit board is fused into the plastic, but it’s just strong adhesive, which eventually softens.

Dan - Antwort

Dan, is there any source that indicates the maximum temperatures to which you can heat the different areas of an iPhone when necessary to loosen adhesives? Or time/power parameters for specific heat guns?

Tomas Delaveau -

This part almost killed me. In the video, they’ve already loosened the adhesive so she pops it right off. The hair dryer should be set to hot and low blowing. It’ll take a few minutes & a few tries) to loosen the adhesive. I aimed at all sides of the cable (ie at both ends where the cable meets the case & straight on at the circuit board). To finally get it off, I mixed up using a spudger to play with it and a very fine tweezer to finally get a good enough grip to pull the button assembly off.

dhcohen67 - Antwort

I believe is better to heat the panel from te outside because the heat transfer would flow in a way that the adhesive will be at a higher temperature than the cable

Tomas Delaveau - Antwort

  • Wenn der ganze Kleber entfernt ist, kannst du den Home Button vom Display entfernen.

  • Wenn du ein zerbrochenes Display austauschst, können Glasscherben am Home Button kleben bleiben. Entferne diese vorsichtig, bevor du den Home Button auf das neue Display überträgst.

One thing to note for re-assembly. You have to make sure the home button is firmly in place. Otherwise, a lack of adhesive will cause the home button to sink into the iPhone after it's fully assembled when you try to press it.

rskrobe - Antwort

Are you sure that you screwed the metal plate back in far enough? I don't have any issues and can't believe that Apple would rely on adhesive to hold the home button from sinking into the phone. Especially as it's the most pressed button on the iPhone.

Thomas Hallett -

Yeah, you have to buy new gaskets if you want you're home button to stick to the digitizer frame when pressing. Don't believe me? Just see what happens when you press the button without new adhesive :) And heck I bought 50 gaskets for only $5 from China.

Didier Daniel -

On the old screen,there were 2 little rubber covers that fit on the screw mounts (that hold the pentalobe screws from Step 1) that I transferred to the new part.

jefowler4th - Antwort

I would add a few extra steps to this (i had to disassemble and reassemble 5 times).

First, adding the Ifixit forward facing camera replacement, and I would add the steps 12-16 fromt his guide on how to take off the heat shield (also has the fingerprint cable).

http://www.instructables.com/id/iPhone-6...

Thanks again.

Roland Bodenheim - Antwort

after placing the home button again, it dose not read my finger prints anymore! any idea? Thanks.

Khal Sh - Antwort

For all the iphone 6 series once the original home button ribbon is torn or damaged the touch ID will never work again. Even if you replace the home button/ribbon. This is a security feature implemented by Apple. Once the original cable for the phone has been damaged or replaced, the touch ID functionality is gone forever.

Tony - Antwort

Dear After replacing the cracked screen successfully I turn it ON and the apple logo keeps coming and going as if it is like rebooting continuously any IDEA?

Cesar

cesarclaudio - Antwort

I'm having the same issue. Did you ever get a response to your question?

Kevin Rivera -

This is missing a step ... most replacement screen assemblies also are missing a small metal plate that sits under the place where the home button connector and flex cable connector rest. Apparently without this metal the touch ID cannot be enabled. That said .. I'll not know on this phone since after following these directions and finding out I needed to pull apart the home button a second time to place this metal plate there the connector would not separate and it ripped the flex cable from the connectors completely. Now it's time to get a new home button and touch ID will never work on this phone again :(

cueball - Antwort

My new screen comes with the home button cable, if I just swap the original home button to the new front panal will I retain touch ID? Or do I need the original cable too?

nathanation - Antwort

if you want touch id to work the cable going from the home button to the logic board must be changed also

CHARLES - Antwort

When I was transferring my home button, it was covered in tiny shards of glass as the instructions warned. I found I was able to remove many of the shards and to clean up the button by wrapping a piece of scotch tape around my finger sticky side out and then gently dabbing at the shards.

davechar - Antwort

https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT205628

Does this iOS update mean that it is no longer necessary to replace the cable going from the home button to the logic board as well?

Peter Barnett - Antwort

The only “problem” that I had, was that the home button connector on the iFixit replacement screen assembly was “floating” and made it very difficult initially to connect the home button cable connector. i eventually glued it down to the screen assembly with some Pritt glue and the connection was easy.

Peter Barnett - Antwort

Thanks for everything.

I just bout the Fix Kit from iFixit, I did every step 9-11 times, carefully. Everytime I try to turn on the phone when everything is assembled it won’t turn on. The screen remains black eventhough the phone is on and itunes can detect it. if I put the broken screen back I get the creen powered on.

Is my recently aquired screen replacement broken? Thanks

Will - Antwort

Solved. The new screen was not working. I now hace some stains on the upper part of the screen.

Will -

I had set my phone up as an erased “new iPhone” prior to the repair. After completing this repair my Touch ID appeared to be working normally and I added 4 fingerprint profiles. After a few hours Touch ID failed and the fingerprint profiles disappeared. Attempting to add them again would not work. After performing a “Hard Reset” the previously entered fingerprints returned and functionallity has been completely normal for a couple of days now. I will repost if another failure occurs.

Steve Mattson - Antwort

When moving original home button to new screen, a tiny dab of adhesive from a Pritt Stick helped hold the cable onto the front panel. Great guide, all worked well, and touch ID working, thanks.

Mike Cowley - Antwort

  • Abhängig von deinem Ersatzteil musst du vielleicht den Membranring um deinen Home Button entfernen.

  • Nutze eine Pinzette, um vorsichtig den Ring vom Home Button abzuziehen.

    • Achte darauf, nicht mit dem Ring am Home Button Kabel hängenzubleiben.

Excelente aporte, y si es verdad solo el botón original nos dará la función de touch id

You can't update your phone when you don't have the original home button, any solutions?

brampeeters122 - Antwort

I work at an Apple repair centre in based in the UK and we have recently encountered MAJOR issues with replacement home buttons. It turns out that home buttons are linked too the logic board on each handset due to the method in which Apple stores you biometric data. Due to this, to the greatest extent of our knowledge, any update (through setting on the phone, updating on the phone, updating through iTunes or resting on iTunes) will cause an ERROR 53 to occur. As of yet we have not be able to rescue a handset from this state. If any body has any further knowledge it would be massively appreciated, as a community we need to get to the bottom of this before anybody had any major disasters.

jakebennettyoung - Antwort

hi

any luck with the issue ?

Mohamed -

Do you ever encounter this if swapping the original home button over or is it just a problem with replacement home buttons?

mollariipod -

Error 53 has been fixed in most recent IOS. Yay!

markalohaaina -

Maybe its because the sensor/homebutton is not only connected to the logicboard but also to the original lcd digitizer..

Mac -

Hi man, I hope you can help me on this. I just updatet my iPhone 6 to the last software after have done it the home button was extremely hot and stays that hot all the time and also the finger print recognizer does not work anymore, so you have any suggestion on this please? (it's the OEM home button)

Thank you

HI, What if i have changed the screen and kept the original home bottom. It's work that way.

spikyy123 - Antwort

For those who encounters a huge problem with their touch id sensors by replacing a new lcd.. its because the fingerprint sensor is not only connected to the logicboard but also to the original digitizer. hopes this helps a lot :)

My iPhone 6 charge still go down although not using ,and the fingerprint sensor doesn't work but the home botton works

So if there any solution to my problem?

alhusseintolan - Antwort

The home button is linked to CPU and Baseband - replacement with other then original will not only removes Touch Id function , but also bricks the phone on the next Restore / Firmware update. Before this it will work fine without Touch Id.

Linking the button is a part of Apple security measures.

Kind regards

andrejs - Antwort

Replacing your home button will not brick your phone—if you're referring to the Error 53 problem, Apple rolled out a fix for that a while ago. You'll definitely still lose Touch ID function however. ;)

Jeff Suovanen -

I replaced my home button with original but still have the new home button cable install (because I damaged original). Last night I contacted apple support "chat" with my iPad. Told them I did the repair myself and there was no 3rd party repair shop involved. The tech had me run a diagnostics check on iPhone. Then the tech had me back up iPhone, then restore iPhone from iTunes. After 30 mins my Touch ID fully functions. My suggest to everyone with this issue is to contact Apple. It worked for me!

tjack10514 - Antwort

Hi tjack10514, I have my iphone 6 both home button and touch id malfunction, it was just happened a month after my speaker replaced by third party. I contacted Apple shop and they told me my iphone out of warranty and had to pay $400 (converted from my local currency), to replace both home button and main board.

Other 3rd party I contacted to repair the home and touch id, says same as Apple, need to replace the mainboard and home button, but they can fix my home button working but touch id will not works.

Any idea if I replace the cable with original touch id, follow your steps, Touch Id will be back to life?

I Am Using iPhone 6S And Home Button Is Hard And I Submit My iPhone To Apple Authorized Service Center And iPhone Is Under Warranty . Anyone Have Any Idea That They Will Repace My iPhone Or Reair It?

def - Antwort

I am going to replace the screen assembly with a replacement due to a cracked screen - there is nothing wrong with the home button. The new assembly came with a home button. I plan on exchanging the home button since my research here leads me to understand that unless I install the old home button into the new assembly, Touch ID will not operate. With this understood, as long as I install the new assembly with the original home button, I should have 100% functionality (provided I don't damage anything during the swap.)

Does this sound reasonable?

Uncle Reggie - Antwort

Exactly, swapping the original button to a new front display assembly should work perfectly fine. Just take care removing the original home button, low heat is your friend. And if you're using your original lcd shield take care removing that as well. Again low heat and fine tip tweezers under the little metal piece adhered to the socket.

Charlie Yarbrough -

Your home button's Touch ID sensor is paired to your iPhone's logic board at the factory. Generally speaking, it will not work in any other iPhone.

I made the mistake of taking my wife's phone to the booth in the mall to get the broken screen replaced (was driving her crazy...). Had several problems with it afterwards (proximity sensor working intermittently, screen responsiveness inhibited when texting and using apps, excessive battery drain.... Decided to get the screen assembly from iFixit and just move the home button over. Everything went smoothly according to the instructions. No problems with the phone afterwards.

Happy wife, happy life!

I recently installed a new Home Button on my iPhone 6. Everything worked out but when I turned the device on, the Home Button just wouldn’t work. I already tried a hard reset by draining the battery. Does anybody has some suggestions? Is this a software problem? I think I installed the hardware correctly, but could this be the problem?

Jonas - Antwort

After you try to update or restore your iOS device in iTunes on your Mac or PC, you might see error 53 in iTunes and "Connect to iTunes" on your device. Error 53 appears when a device fails a security test. This test was designed to check whether Touch ID works properly before the device leaves the factory, and wasn’t intended to affect customers.

For anyone who experienced error 53, Apple released an update in iOS 9.3 to allow you to successfully restore your device using iTunes on your Mac or PC. Use the steps in this article to restore and recover your device. If you believe that you paid for an out-of-warranty device replacement based on an error 53 issue, contact ++Apple Support++ to ask about reimbursement.

Is there any way to separate the home button face from the home button assembly so that I can retain the secure enclave chip on the cable and just replace the cracked face? The original button assembly seems to be micro-spot welded?

Jimmy - Antwort

Important to note that in Step 22 you may need to fold the small connector back towards the home button to allow it to snap into the connector socket if you purchased a replacement home button. This part comes as a single piece so be very careful when folding the ribbon cable back over itself. Also don’t over-tighten the screws that hold the protective plate in place in Step 21 when reassembling or the button will not be able to “click” on pressing when the phone is reassembled and the screws are put back in place on either side of the lightning connector (step 1).

A smooth repair nonetheless and home button back to normal now ^_^

Etcher - Antwort

You can not fix your phone with the part, that Ifixit suggest in the “parts.” (See below) Because you can not separate the actual button from the metal ring. The repair guide should be update to explain that.

craig walters - Antwort

Hi Craig! Sorry for the mixup, the button assembly you mentioned is linked at the top of the guide, and boxed to make it more prominent. The cable assembly is the last on the list, and the product description explains the missing components and links to the more complete part. You can also click through the guide on the product page to see that we don’t go into the in-depth replacement procedure.

That said! If you feel you were lead astray, please don’t hesitate to contact our customer service department!

Sam Lionheart -

Yes thanks for the quck reply. It is prominent, but for someone that already has a kit, I look for the individual parts. So it’s somewhat misleading. I figured it afterwards that you can purchase the button with out the kit from the drop down menu. Just a little confusing I think because you sell both the home button cable assembly and home button assembly,

Hi my iphone 6 home button intermittently quit working then sometimes it worked but now its completely unresponsive. This all happened immediatly after updating the iphone software. Touch id isnt working either. Iphone 6- original everything never been opened. Thank you in advance.

Hi, I replaced my home button as the original got hot and wouldn’t allow Touch ID. The replacement appeared to work (obviously without Touch ID) but the battery drain was horrendous! I’ve now disconnected the home button, battery is back to normal but would really like to have a working home button that doesn’t kill the battery. Anyone else had this problem? Any ideas on how to solve it?

sarahandlyndon - Antwort

Replaced the home button due to my original not taking me back to the home screen. Once replace with ifixit parts, the functionality of it did not work successfully. Not happy. Triple checked my work and everything is where it is supposed to be. I was hesitant on repairing myself initially and not happy that it isn’t successful. Doubt I will use these parts again to fix my phones in the future. NOT Pleased…

Justin Raftery - Antwort

Sorry to hear about the unsuccessful repair experience, Justin. If you contact iFixit Customer Support via help.ifixit.com and provide them with your order number, they can assist with this issue.

Kadan Sharpe -

If both the original part and the replacement part had the same problem, the fault is probably not with the part. You could have a bad home button cable or some other issue. If possible I would borrow the entire display assembly from a known good phone and see if that fixes it, and then work backward from there.

Jeff Suovanen -

Hi,

I just bought a home button assembly and a new front panel (my screen was cracked and I had no home button), but unfortunately the hone button doesn’t fit the hole in the front panel…both parts are from Ifixit. I should mention that I got a black front panel and white/silver button. It’s hard to believe that different colors have different sizes, so most probably the parts just don’t fit?

Thanks
