A complicated fix for a tiny problem. Learn how to remove the screen and camera in order to access the inside of the ring to pop it out, then insert the new lense ring.

  1. Before disassembling your iPhone, discharge the battery below 25%. A charged lithium-ion battery can catch fire and/or explode if accidentally punctured.

    • Power off your iPhone before beginning disassembly.

    • Remove the two 3.4 mm P2 Pentalobe screws on the bottom edge of the iPhone, next to the Lightning connector.

  2. Optionally, apply mild heat to the lower edge of the iPhone using an iOpener or hair dryer for about a minute.

    • Heat softens the adhesive securing the display, making it easier to open.

  3. Opening the display on the 6s separates a thin strip of adhesive around the perimeter of the display. If you prefer to replace the adhesive, have a set of new adhesive strips ready before you continue. It's possible to complete the repair without replacing the adhesive, and you probably won't notice any difference in functionality.

    • Apply a suction cup to the lower left corner of the display assembly.

    • Take care not to place the suction cup over the home button.

  4. Pull up on the suction cup with firm, constant pressure to create a slight gap between the front panel and rear case. Take your time and apply firm, constant force. The display assembly is a much tighter fit than most devices and is held down with adhesive.

    • If you have any trouble, heat the front of the iPhone using an iOpener, hair dryer, or heat gun until it's slightly too hot to touch. This will help soften the adhesive securing the edges of the display.

  5. There is a notch on the underside of the display, just above the headphone jack. This is the safest place to begin prying the phone open. Place the flat edge of a spudger into the gap between the screen and rear case, directly above the headphone jack.

sometimes it becomes a pain to remove old ring, some devices has rolled ring so it much harder to remove carefully

Max Nikiforov - Antwort

I bent the frame and distorted the back panel where it started to come out trying to “pop-out” the lens ring. The lens ring was attached to an inner piece that holds the camera by a metal piece, this wasn’t described in these instructions.

Be careful of this!

John J - Antwort

You’re right! I used a previous guide that shows up until the camera is removed, then my own starts after I’ve already removed this flexible metal bracket. This bracket is used as a alignment guide and stabilizer for the camera so hard hits don’t rattle the sensitive internal magnets that stabilize the camera lenses. With a fine screwdriver, pop the 4 points that this is welded to the lens up then remove the bracket. It may get mangled a bit but it can usually be straightened back out to re-use upon camera reinstall.
