Nutze diese Anleitung, wenn bei deiner Display Einheit die Frontkamera und Sensorkabel und die Kabelabdeckung der Front Panel Einheit schon vorinstalliert ist. Alles was du machen musst, ist nur die alte Display Einheit zu entfernen, den Home Button zu tauschen und die neue Display Einheit wieder einzubauen.

Hat die neue Display Einheit keine dieser Teile verbaut, kannst du dieser Anleitung folgen.

In beiden Fällen ist es wichtig, den originalen Home Button zu übertragen, damit die Touch-ID Ihre Funktion beibehält.

Außerdem kannst du dieser Anleitung folgen, um die Kabelabdeckung der Front Panel Einheit auszutauschen.


  1. Vor dem Beginn sollte der Ladestand des iPhones unter 25% liegen. Ein geladener Lithium-Ionen Akku kann anfangen zu brennen oder explodieren, wenn man ihn beschädigt.

    Make sure you use the correct screw driver tip to remove these screws, which for the iPhone 6s Plus is the P2, otherwise you may strip the tip of the screw making it 10 times harder to remove. If once the screw is lose, it will not come off, use a magnet to remove it.

    If I do it by myself, will it damage the water resistant strip?

    I know iphone 7 have it ,but I am not sure 6s plus have it.

    Ganqian Zhu - Antwort

    iPhone 6s has an adhesive gasket under the display, similar to the iPhone 7—however, it doesn’t add much in the way of waterproofing since the 6s has non-sealed openings in other parts of the phone. Water resistance on the 6s is primarily internal (seals around the logic board connectors, etc.). It may still be worthwhile to replace the adhesive on the 6s in order to help keep the display firmly seated so it doesn’t move/wobble at all under pressure, but the phone will continue to work fine whether you replace the adhesive or not.

    Salve nella procedura iniziale di smontaggio display con la ventosa non è menzionato il fatto di scaldare i lati del display per “ammorbidire” la striscia che incolla il display alla scocca.

    Non è necessaria la cosa o è consigliabile ?


    Hello, in the initial disassembling procedure with the suction cup, it is not mentioned how to heat the sides of the display to "soften" the strip that glues the display to the body.

    Is not the thing necessary or is it advisable?

    thank you

    How do I know that the Battery has ZERO Charging Cycles on it when it arrives ? Is there a (downside) to Higher Capacity batteries ? It is INCREDIBLY DIFFICULT to maintain a “Zero Chinese Products Lifestyle”, so how do I know that I’m not getting a deficient Chinese battery, potentially a refurb. battery ?

    integritybuilders - Antwort

    When your repair is complete, you can use coconutBattery to check your new battery stats and cycle count. (A properly tested battery may already have a charge cycle or two on it.) Avoid higher capacity batteries on iPhones—they’re generally either gimmicks, unsafe, or both. As far as the quality of the part, that comes down to how much you trust your supplier and whether they guarantee the product.

  2. Beim Öffnen des Displays vom 6s Plus bleibt um den Rahmen des Displays ein dünner Klebestreifen. Wenn du den Kleber ersetzen möchtest solltest du einen Satz neuer Klebestreifen bereithalten, bevor du weitermachst. Alternativ ist es möglich, die Reparatur zu beenden, ohne den Kleber zu ersetzen – du wirst wahrscheinlich keinen Unterschied merken.

    My cracked screen prevented the suction cup from sealing. SOLUTION: With a piece of clear packing tape across the screen, the suction cup will seal and pull.

    Jim Cowles - Antwort

    • Ziehe mit etwas Kraft gleichmäßig den Saugnapf nach oben, um eine kleine Lücke zwischen dem Display und dem Gehäuse zu öffnen.

    • Wenn du zu stark nach oben ziehst, könnte das womöglich das Display beschädigen. Benutze nur soviel Kraft, wie es braucht, um eine kleine Lücke zwischen dem Display und dem Gehäuse herzustellen.

    I had a shattered front glass panel so I could not get the suction cup to seal properly. I tried a couple of different ways to get good suction but to no avail. I eventually used a Stanley knife to pry up the corner so I could get the spudger into the opening.

    John Architzel - Antwort

    A really high quality packing tape over the entire screen will usually be enough to use the suction cup on a shattered screen.

    djwooten -

    I used a suction cup on each side to provide counter traction. I braced the iphone between my knees and pulled apart while my helper inserted the spudger

    jkanne - Antwort

    This was by FAR the most difficult part of this whole thing. I confess the spudger was not cutting it so I used a butter knife to get into the small opening first, then used the spudger to go around the screen.

    Julie Sanchez - Antwort

    Hey everyone, if you never have done this part before be aware there is an extremely strong adhesive around the lip of the screen and once again is extremely strong. I had to get a friend to insert the pry/pick into the small gap while I used one hand to brace the phone down and the other to pull the suction cup without it digging into my hand. Go slow, it took me 5 tries because I didn’t realize how strong the adhesive was.

    bartmistrot - Antwort

    I also had a badly cracked lower screen - that glass was actually threatening to pull off the phone in chunks during this step, even with packing tape. Resorted to @j2arch’s tip and inserted a utility knife vertically into the seam between the display and phone body. Was able to lever the glass enough to get the spudger in there.

    Jason Augustyn - Antwort

    I have replaced sevrel screens for my sister in law and my niece. The packing tape has worked every time and that’s with it Shattered and pieces already falling out. You have to make sure the packing tape goes to the edge of the screen but doesn’t touch the frame. I have the plier like screen remover and use that it is much easier to remove the screen by your self with that tool. I also have the little finger suction cup that comes with the kit here. I bought the plier suction cup tool When I had to replace the screen that had the pieces of the screen missing and I don’t regret spending the extra money for that it has made a world of difference. I do this as a hobby it’s not a job for me. The electric divide repair kit from Lowe’s is also a very good kit to help. If you’re only going to do it once the kit that comes with the package is a great deal from ifixit. Well worth the money to spend the little extra to get the kit if you all ready don’t have the tools.

    If you try to use the spunger near the home button and try to pry it can crack your screen. This happened to me.

    Jeffrey - Antwort

    • Die sicherste Stelle, um das iPhone zu öffnen, ist am Display über der Kopfhörerbuchse.

    • Während du noch am Saugnapf ziehst, führe das flache Ende eines Spudgers in die Lücke direkt über der Kopfhörerbuchse ein.

    This was by far the hardest part of the repair for me. Getting leverage while finding a way to prod with a spudger is a challenge in coordination. I used a second spudger with point holding the phone down by the headphone jack, with the other end of the spudger anchored to my desk.

    drpotter - Antwort

    • Drehe den Spudger, um die Lücke zwischen dem Display und dem Gehäuse zu vergrößern.

    • Öffne das Display zu ungefähr 90° und lehne es gegen etwas, um es während du arbeitest gestützt zu halten.

      • Öffne das Display nicht mehr als 90° – es ist immer noch am oberen Ende des iPhones befestigt. Die Kabel können sehr einfach reißen.

      • Füge ein Gummiband hinzu, um das Display sicher an seinem Platz zu halten, während du arbeitest. Das beugt Schäden an den Displaykabeln vor.

    For this part, neither PH000 or Y000 worked. Technically, it’ll set you back 31$ because you will need the PH00 screwdriver for this part, and the part where you need to open the screen.

    When putting the new battery in, make sure to line up the plug and not to the top of the battery… our battery was smaller so the plug would NOT have lined up if we used the top of the battery. ALSO, the plug was NOT 90 degrees so we had to finagle the plug. Also, make sure there is a clear CLICK when you plug in the connector or it may not work. Ours went in but guess didn’t go far enough so we had to take the screen off and push it harder until we heard the “click” then it worked fine.

    I made a mistake and unscrewed the screw just north north west of the one circled in yellow. Of course I lost the screw. Can anyone give me any guidance about this? what does the wire connected to it do? What is the size of the screw, in case I have to replace it?

    P.S. This is another reason to consider the possibility of NOT removing the screen just to replace the battery: removing the screen presents a additional possible headache, especially for people like me with bad eyesight who probably shouldn’t be doing this in the first place.

    “When reconnecting the digitizer cable, do not press the center of the connector. Press one end of the connector, then press the opposite end. Pressing in the center of the connector can bend the component and cause digitizer damage. “

    The following note above was so helpful. I was speeding through the process of getting things back together, since it seemed easy to connect the digitizer cable, but I kept pushing it in the middle and I wouldn’t connect. Until I read through this step and realized it was easier if I would’ve connected one side and then the opposite side right after.

    Jeffrey Robinos - Antwort

    Don’t be too shy when pushing the ends of the digitizer connector back to place. If it does not connect properly, you might face the “half backlight” problem, even if you did not kill any LCD filter. Also check carefully, that you don’t clamp parts of the sticky sealing material placed around the connector inside the connection area.

    Always make sure to disconnect the battery before you do any work on the phone replacing any parts the digitizer or anything. And before you start make sure the phone is turned off you don’t want any power surges. If you also have a static electricity bracelet that also is a plus to use but isn’t a necessity just a nice piece of mind. Some cases you do need to use one so you don’t discharge static electricity to an electrical component and mess it up.

    You can see what they look like in this blog post. Hopefully we'll have replacement adhesive strips available in the future, but right now I don't know of any suppliers. Your phone will work fine without replacing the adhesive—if I had to guess, I'd say it's there as a little extra insurance against display wobble now that 3D Touch has users pushing harder on their phones.

    Jeffrey Robinos - Antwort

    I did this on 2 separate phones. The first time, I did it according to directions, and it worked well. However, the adhesive pulled off in the process. On the 2nd phone I used a handwarmer to slightly warm the home button area. (I think an iOpener would work best, but I didn’t have one on hand). With the constant pressure after being heated, the home button assembly came off easily, and the adhesive stayed in place. I’ll definitely use slight heat in the future for this step as it seems to lessen the possibility of damaging the assembly.

    Jami - Antwort

    I would have liked to see the heating instructions on this page. I only saw it once I re-watched the video as I was having trouble getting the button out. iFixit would have made another sale had it been obvious that the heating pad would come in handy. I ended up using a microwave heating pad instead. Worked fine.

What do you do about the 3D touch?

Brayden Weller - Antwort

The 3D Touch sensor should be integrated into the replacement part that you buy. If you check out our display teardown you can see that it's embedded two layers deep in the display assembly, so there are no discrete parts you need to worry about.

Evan Noronha -

it's great, thanks

sharonsl - Antwort

And if you replace the home button with a new one the finger sensor usually don't work again

Michael Kimmel - Antwort

This is because the home button that originally comes with the phone is "married" is married to the phone. This connection can never be returned if home button is broken or replaced. That in turn makes touch id not work because its not coded to the phone. Apple can not remarry phones in case anybody was wondering. Take good care of your home button

Screw measurements in these guides are always rounded to the nearest tenth of a mm, so don't worry about trying to be more exact than that. Manufacturing tolerances and the margin of error on your caliper will make for inconsistent measurements in the hundredths of a mm range.

Matthew Joseph Shaker, I suspect that one of the display connectors isn't seated properly (this has happened to me on more than one occasion).

more than any of the other iPhone models, we seem to have customers return their 6s Plus screen replacements claiming touch issues after our repair. we use OEM certified assembly replacements and stick with the same reputable vendors we have used over the years. the returns seem to come in droves. months without a return and then 3-5 returns in one week for a couple weeks in a row. just curious if anyone else has noticed such issue or has an explanation to the phenomenon.

It's a bit unclear, is the adhesive (home button) enough to stick to the new display when i move it over or do i need to replace some part from it to move it over to the new frame ?

Mihai - Antwort

Nope, no additional parts to replace. The adhesive just seals the little rubber gasket around the home button in place, preventing water and dust intrusion. The actual home button is held in place by sturdier stuff (the bracket, screws, and the display itself).

Jeff Suovanen -

If you do not disconnect the battery while doing this can it mess anything up?

dylynflorence - Antwort

Don't skip disconnecting the battery. As a rule of thumb you should never perform electronics repairs while the device is still connected to power. In the case of iPhones, leaving the battery connected while you remove the display cables can blow the backlight circuit; at that point you're no longer in DIY territory and you'll need the help of a microsoldering pro to undo the damage. Can you take shortcuts and get away with it? Sure, sometimes... but disconnecting the battery is easy, so there's really no reason to risk it.

Jeff Suovanen -

This happened to me. I blew the backlight circuit on the motherboard.

I had the battery connected when plugging in the display cables.

Power was not on so it did not occur to me that it would be a problem.

Expensive mistake.

richlove -

I used a gel heating pad that I microwaved for 2 minutes to remove the Home button. I replaced a screen on an iPhone 6 a few months ago and removing the Home button was the most difficult part of the procedure. I damaged the Home button cable and had to replace that as well. On this repair, I used a gel heating pad that I microwaved for 2 minutes to remove the Home button. The heating pad was very hot, but not unbearable so. I left it on the Home button for about 30 secs and the button and cable came right off, I didn't even have to pry anything off.

Since this was the second time completing this procedure, it took me about 20 minutes from start to finish.

jlall - Antwort

I was repairing an iPhone 6s today, just the 4.7 inch display. I had the battery plugged in while I was doing this. As I plugged in the LCD, I’ve seen smoke rise up. Was it because of the adhesive gasket around the connectors for the LCD & digitizer connectors. That maybe I had accidentally pinch in the adhesive within the connectors or was it because i didn’t disconnected the battery.

Osvaldo Banda - Antwort

Is your phone still working? For your next repair, never forget to detach the battery connector!

Zaim -

Sounds to me like you blew the backlight diode. This is a common problem, and perfectly fixable, but requires board-level repair skills and equipment. Always disconnect the battery before beginning repairs!

Jeff Suovanen -

so i just replaced screen and battery on 6s plus from what i read can someone confirm that once the screen is replaced touch id will not work before i button this project up

austin vangelder - Antwort

@firefighter709 Touch ID should work just fine after a screen replacement, as long as you carefully transfer your original home button to the new screen without damaging it.

Jeff Suovanen -

I ran into the same problem and based on information elsewhere - the touchid will NOT work with an aftermarket screen - UNLESS I just have a defective display from iFixit. I have moved the touchid button back to the original cracked screen and NO (0) issues with the touchid using my original Home Button. However when I then disconnect the battery and then move the home button back to the NEW display I purchased on iFixit - then I have the Touch ID NOT being recognized. Everything else works just fine. I have triple checked the connectors and must be doing it correctly if I can put everything back the way it was on the old cracked screen and it works flawlessly — other than having a cracked screen. I am sending this display back to iFixit - very disappointed!!!!! the fact that it works back on the original screen rules everything out but a defective display.

kmj1268 -

So an update on how I corrected this - (BTW - it had to do nothing with a bad connection). I had taken a iTunes backup earlier after I put the cracked screen back with the original home button. Verified that everything worked. Then I went and did a reset -erase all settings on the phone. Then after verifying everything was good. I then did a restore from the iTunes backup taken earlier and then verified everything powered up with all the apps, etc. Once verified, I powered down the phone and then disconnected the battery connection, then removed the cracked screen with working touch id button. Then carefully moved it back over to the new display, triple checking everything, then secured all the connections for the display and attached the backing plate. Then reconnected the battery and backing plate. then powered up the phone - and everything worked correctly. Seems like the working magic was to reset-erase all settings, and then do a restore, and then move the home button. Go figure.

How well does the suction cup removal technique work if the display is shattered? Can I still get a decent seal?

David Weis - Antwort

I recommend you to put some tape on the screen, so the suction cup can lift the display up

Is there a tutorial with details about the black adhesive seal of the display?

I saw the part for like 6.95 but didn’t find the guidance for the replacement. Can you help?

After i replace the digitalizer i feel that the top right corner of the Iphone 6s plus is warm, is that normal??

After replacing the screen and putting the phone back together, the backlight shines out of the hole where the camera is slightly. You can see it easily just looking at the phone. We bought the whole screen assembly, is there a way to adjust this, or do I need to send the part back for a new one?

Rhonda Tregay - Antwort

Great guide. Followed it and was able to successfully replace the cracked screen. However, now I’m having an issue where there during phone calls, the screen would go dark. As if the pocket sensor is being triggered. Is there a fix?

So I've done a few 6pluses and the ribbon for the home button runs along the heat shield, so keeping the same heat shield and button kept I'd touch intact. However on the 6s pluses it's sandwiched between the digitizer lcd leaving only the heat shield if removed. I did not have luck keeping I'd touch with the 6s even with the original home button and heatshield, was this just an isolated case with mines? I've also heard doing a deep reset might fix it, have yet to try though, any input would be greatly appreciated.

Done, but no wifi afterward. Perhaps due to the struggle to remove the battery after the strips broke.

Update: Nor do I have Bluetooth. I looked at the article on bluetooth and wifi antenna and didn’t see anything that I’d knowingly damaged. Can anyone tell me what the most common cause would be for Bluetooth and wifi not to work after this? I believe it must be the antenna, as the two services do turn on and search for access points and bluetooth devices. The phone is able to connect to my fitbit if held right next to it. TIA.

Garrett McWilliams - Antwort

Figured it out. There is a small RF connector next to the flat ribbon connectors that go up to the screen. It apparently popped off and became wedged under the circuit board when I installed the new battery. I did notice a bit of grey fluff floating around at one point and didn't realize what it was. Should have been wearing magnifiers. Oh well. At least the new screen and battery work fine.

Garrett McWilliams - Antwort

What do I do if neither the ear speaker or the front facing camera work? Everything else is fine: proximity sensor, touch screen, home button, speakerphone speaker, etc. I’ve futzed with the connectors over and over, disassembled and reassembled the front-facing camera and sensor assembly multiple times. I’m afraid I may have damaged the connector for that assembly, can that whole assembly be purchased separately?

I have replaced the screen twice both new screens have black spots/black shadowing in the top right corner of the display. I cannot think I’ve been sold two fualty screens by different sellers. Any ideas?

I followed the instructions as precisely as I could with my iFixit replacement screen for my wife’s iPhone.

After doing so, the external speaker is extremely quiet (as in, “useless”), and the TouchID doesn’t work. What connection did I damage, what connection did I not do properly, or is there a possibility that my replacement screen was defective? I presume that it is something that I did that I could maybe redo properly.

Kevin Kauffman - Antwort

Great how to instructions. It was easy to follow and was done in under 15 mins.

what if the home button popped out when i broke the phone and the cables are cut? do i order a screen with a home button?

Danny Serrano Jr. - Antwort

How do you properly put the display connectors back on the respective sockets without messing up the logic board? I’m stuck on step # 21 (putting it back together) and everytime I move to another connector the other connector pops out and I have to start all over again. This is my first time tearing down an iPhone because my screen went black when I accidentally dropped and vertical lines start appearing on the screen. Can somebody help me please because I don't want to mess up the logic board putting this phone back together?

malik_gatson - Antwort

Make sure the connector is perfectly positioned over the socket, and then press it down. That’s it. For the larger ones, press first on one side, then the other, rather than in the middle. In all cases, make sure the connector is correctly aligned, or you’ll bend the pins and/or damage the socket. If they’re popping out, you probably just haven’t connected them fully. Make sure the sockets are clean; if there’s any dirt or debris blocking the connector, blast it out with some compressed air and try again. If none of that works, you’ve got some kind of hardware problem—either a defective part, or possibly it’s not the right screen for your particular model iPhone.

Had received a flickering display/no display 6splus today. Replaced the folder and the charging port. The display was back, but seems like the battery is not charging now and continues to toggle automatically between 1%and 9%.The cell is switching off intermittently as well. What could be the issue?

Michel Vi - Antwort

The left-top portion of the image (whatever was displayed) was expanded and overlaid on the screen. I suspected a loose connection. I opened up the phone, disconnected and reconnected the connectors and reassembled the phone. The screen was fine for a few minutes but then the problem came back. Any idea how to fix this issue?

Rajendra Divecha - Antwort

It’s mostly the top portion of the image that gets stretched and overlaid.

Just done this, all was going perfect I tested the screen after before closing it down on the new gasket and it worked I turn it back off close the phone up and now it won't turn on. Any suggestions? Tried the power and home buttons together with no luck same goes for charging it. Is there a possibility I damaged the power button when closing up?
