    Hi, just got the repair kit that came with IPhone 6S battery. I felt that there’s no explanation on which tool to use to remove the two 3.4mm P2 Pentalobe screws. It’s not helpful just to say “Remove the two 3.4 mm P2 Pentalobe screws on the bottom edge of the iPhone, next to the Lightning connector. “. It’s more important to explain how and what tool to use. The repair tool kit tools were not marked at all and it’s not right to assume that people know which tool or part to use. Please kindly address this issue. Thanks. Janet

    Janet Monaghen - Antwort

    @beingchen For the P2 pentalobe screws you should use the driver bit marked P2. Might be a little hard to see but it’s there, etched into the side of the bit.

    Jeff Suovanen -

    It’s very clear which tool you need. As it says these are “3.4 mm P2 Pentalobe screws” - so you need a 3.4 mm P2 Pentalobe screwdriver…

    alexanderbrix1987 - Antwort

    Just a P2 driver—3.4 mm is the length of the screw.

    Jeff Suovanen -

    If you can’t identify which screwdriver in the kit to use, you probably shouldn’t be working on your phone. Just sayin’

    Hello, I was wondering if there was a guide of how to replace the adhesive strips, thank you

    Pablo Reyes - Antwort

    The suction cup will not work if you have a shattered screen. I put a tip of an exacto knife between the glass and side frame above the power connector, carefully pried up then used the spluger to pry the rest of the way up.

    johnmurphyjr - Antwort

    Tape will work as well in order to create a smooth surface

    Nick Stine -

    Even tape didn’t work on my first shattered screen 6S disassembly. Had to reset to the exacto/thin blade technique.

    Peter Bovey - Antwort

    For me, it seemed like I only had one shot at the suction cup. It stuck on firmly the first time, but I noticed in the instructions that it was placed more on the side. I detached my suction cup and repositioned it and now it doesn’t stay (sucked) on. Hmmm.

    Frank Terence - Antwort

    Can you use the iSclack opener to open the iPhone 6s?

    Joe Koffee - Antwort

    The iSclack is helpful, although you have to use it a bit differently than you would on, say, a 5s or 6. The iSclack alone isn’t strong enough to pop the display open, because of all the adhesive around the perimeter of the 6s display. But you can use it to lift the display just enough to get a tool in there and start cutting the adhesive. Basically, the iSclack does the same job as the suction cup shown here, with maybe a bit less fuss.

    Jeff Suovanen -

    My screen was SUPER shattered… the hair dryer did the trick. Patience it definitely the key… I tried putting tape over the glass but the suction cup wouldn’t stick to it at all but it stuck to the broken glass for a few seconds. I taped it up when I was finally able to move onto the next steps to keep the glass from getting everywhere then peeled it off for Step 10.

    Mandy Ng - Antwort

    Hi, it looks like, from reading the comments, that separating the display assembly from the phone is a tricky step.

    Would the piece of equipment, in the link below, be any use at this stage? Seems it could be used for all makes and models.

    Michael Magor - Antwort

    I have a screen protector on my phone. I was wondering if it was going to be problem for the suction cup.

    jeffreyleung2002 - Antwort

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

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

    • Wenn du zu stark ziehst, könnte die Display-Einheit beschädigt werden. Wende genau so viel Kraft auf, dass ein kleiner Spalt zwischen Rear Case und Display Einheit entsteht.

    No, really. Do this on a table and use less strength than you think. If you open the display the whole way at this step you can easily rip the home button connections and one of several display connections at the top. <— too much experience... :(

    chuymatt - Antwort

    Wow, that was tough. Patience, patience, patience. Did not use the iOpener, just firm and consistent pulling with the phone on a flat surface. When the suction cup comes off... clean the display surface and go back at it. I did use the pointed end of a spudger inserted into the headphone jack to hold down the bottom case whilst I pulled on the suction cup. Once there was sufficient room (see next step) you can just get the spudger (flat end) to slide in slightly.

    plisi - Antwort

    If you're lifting up on the glass, how are you supposed to hold the rest of the phone down? Is it by holding the camera end down with the side of your hand and rotating your hand, or using your other hand (not pictured) on the edges (seems very difficult), or using a spudger in a jack?

    Bryan - Antwort

    I got a fingernail on the metal edge and that did the trick.

    David Heinbach -

    On the 6s, which has an annoying black adhesive strip holding the display assembly on, I use the iSclack to loosen a very small area near the home button then insert a thin spudger and gently twist it a bit to release the adhesive. Do this around the bottom and both sides of the phone to release the screen. I usually have to break some of the adhesive strands when the opening is big enough.

    scentaur - Antwort

    My spudgers just too thick for initial insertion. In the end, fingernail on my thumb got me started, and I was able to get plastic picks in there to work it. The microwavable iOpener gel strip really helped.

    Heidi Moser - Antwort

    Thanks plisi, your comments are helpful. I had to apply pressure several different times. Didnt realize until about the seventh time applying pressure that what I was doing was slowly loosening the adhesive. Patience is truly the key with this step. You may not think you're progressing but it's slowly prying away.

    amylofton - Antwort

    What happens if the cup won't even stick to the display because it is cracked and it will not hold air near the bottom of the phone?

    Jaredrett - Antwort

    hey everyone, i just did my first iphone 6S display...after many 5, 5c, and 5s iphones...just keep trying and carefully insert the spunger where they said...right around the headphone jack. The black adhesive makes it very tough to get it off unless you work at one corner. Be careful...but you can do it! ;-)

    David Althaus - Antwort

    Use a razor, and go along the outside of the phone carevilly using the razor as a spudger. it will efficiently cut and weaken the adhesive while spudging the screen away from the frame. only takes 15 mins.... Use a workbench razor, not a flimsy one. If possible, use one where one side of the razor has a gaurd on it for better grip. Take it slow and try not to scratch the frame. Lots of pressure and patience is key!!!



    Jaredrett - Antwort

    The first time you pull it apart there's black glue tape that you'll have to compete with to get it open. Be careful

    Jeff - Antwort

    Use a hairdryer about 2-3 inches from the phone on high heat for about a minute, moving the dryer the entire time. The phone opened for me in less than a minute after trying for several minutes without heating up the phone.

    Todd Leach - Antwort

    Careful ..delicate work. I also used a hot hair dryer around the perimeter for just a couple minutes to help loosen the adhesive bond. I then used my sadly short finger nail to help loosen the edge. I placed dental floss under the corner & carefully lifted the display very very slowly. This worked within about 3 minutes. As mentioned earlier the adhesive used in the iPhone 6s is very strong but this routine worked like a charm & was quick!

    Mary Blocher - Antwort

    Much easier to do using the Spudger that is provided in the Pro Tool Kit. It has a thinner fin type head. The Spudger provided in this repair kit is definitely too thick and makes it far more difficult.

    Tyler Brady - Antwort

    The spudger is too thick and the glue is too strong. Pulling up broke the glass below the power button. Now I am out $200 for a repair, plus a battery. Bummer. I am VERY good at repairing things. The adhesive on this is very very strong. The pentalobe tip that they send with the kits not milled well and I had to take a file and flatten the tip to get it to work - it is not finished well at all. I used the kit for the iPhone 6 for my Mom and had no problem. I am 51 and have been fixing things since I was very young.

    Well, I shattered my screen trying to do this. So now I need a battery and screen repair. Not happy.

    Carolann Parran - Antwort

    Me too! Be gentle!

    Matthew Simoenau -

    Removing the display was the hardest part of the whole job. The adhesive is very strong, but just be patient. What I ended up doing was to use the suction cup, the flat end of the spudger, and an iFixit opening tool. I used the suction cup on the screen as directed. Then I placed the flat end of the spudger just a bit into the charging port and held down the phone body by the spudger on my work mat. I pulled up on the suction cup, pushed down on the spudger, and inserted the thin iFixit opening tool in the small seperation. I took my time and worked my way around all of the edges. After that it was really easy. I was able to reuse the adhesive, and my new battery install went just as planned.

    Eric Olson - Antwort

    Use a hair dryer as per the suggestions and this will definitely make the job easier and reducing the risk of breaking the display . Keep a steady pull of the display, don’t rush and it will start to show the small separation gap. An issue is that it will go back in place if you stop pulling before you can use the spudger tool. The suction tool that came with my repair kit did not have a ring on it as per the guide picture. It has a blue handle that is open on the side. I sat at my kitchen desk and opened a drawer. I hooked the open edge of the suction handle around the drawer side edge which me a third hand. I held the phone with one hand and pulled it away from the desk drawer. Once the separation started I could use my other hand with the flat edge of the spudger to complete the separation. Hope this helps.

    emaneht - Antwort

    Hair dryer - 1 minute until it’s hot like a fresh mug of coffee. Then as soon as you see the smallest gap, insert a razor blade above the phones jack, I needed to slide it towards the charge port and back. Once it slips in keep it there and use your spudger to enlarge the gap and slide it along the corners.

    Steve Esson - Antwort

    Yes, I used the tip of a sharp knife as a pry tool to get me started. Since the screen was cracked anyway I figured I had nothing to lose. It went fine.

    David Heinbach -

    Also tried it with the hair dryer - worked like a charm. 5 Minutes and the phone was open. The whole repair procedure took me about 45 minutes, and was ok. Re-assembling the three display-connectors has been a bit tricky, but with careful movements and taking the time it needs it was not a big problem. New display is very good, phone looks like new :-)

    Christian Woelk - Antwort

    • Es befindet sich eine Kerbe an der Unterseite des Displays, genau über der Kopfhörer-Buchse. Hier solltest du mit dem Spudger ansetzen.

    • Platziere den flachen Teil des Spudgers in der Lücke zwischen Display und Rückgehäuse, direkt über der Kopfhörer-Buchse.

    WARNING: easy to stretch/ruin the adhesive

    As you proceed, know that you must keep ALL of the adhesive stuck to the phone. If any stays stuck to display, it can become permanently stretched as you are prying and lifting. Then you’ll need to buy the replacement adhesive, once it’s back in stock!

    Jason - Antwort

    If you’re opening the phone at all, you’re compromising the adhesive. There is absolutely no way to somehow open it perfectly so you can re-use it. Fortunately, it’s cheap and fairly easy to replace—and not even that critical on the 6s series anyway, since it’s not doing any real waterproofing.

    Jeff Suovanen -

    I had a badly cracked screen. Packing tape helped the suction cup stick. Heating the phone helped soften the adhesive, and in the end I pried the screen up at the headphone jack with a sharp pointy knife. That helped me get the spudger underneath. Not recommended if the screen is ok, like for a battery replacement, but mine was cracked so I figured I had nothing to lose. Great guide.

    David Heinbach - Antwort

    • Drehe den Spudger in eine hochkante Position, um die Lücke zwischen Display-Einheit und dem Rest des iPhones zu vergrößern.

    No need to turn the spudger full 90°. Just turn it a little.

    Martin Born - Antwort

    • Füge das flache Ende auf der linken Seite des iPhones ein, zwischen Display-Einheit und Rückgehäuse.

    • Fahre mit dem Spudger auf der linken Seite in Richtung obere Hälfte des iPhones, um den Kleber zu trennen und die Klammern zu lösen.

    I’ve found it very easy to open the phone with one of the blue opening picks.

    Just slide it along the left and right side of the display.

    Martin Born - Antwort

    Excellent idea. No matter which tool you use take your time so not to damage the display assembly further. Even a cracked screen is a great test tool or spare to use while doing other repairs when it still comes on.

    It should also be mentioned, DO NOT USE A METAL SPUDGER. You could short the battery to other nearby metal parts. I've done that, the battery clip arced to the metal cover on some of the logic board chips, and my phone wouldn't power back on for 3 days. They should put a caution caption on this step. I've had this happen on a 5S as well.

    SERIOUS WARNING!: During *reassembly*, you should NOT reconnect the battery connector until the VERY LAST step (upon reassembly!), as many people, including myself, apparently have smoked (burned, destroyed) the main Logic board.

    I was able to skip removing the display assembly and logic board steps and lay the speaker upside down on the bottom edge of the logic board without putting undue pressure on the antenna cable making this a much easier and quicker repair for me. If you choose to leave the display assembly connected, I recommend using a rubber band to hold it to a box of similar size at a 90 degree angle to prevent damage and stress to the attached cables.

    So, the steps I skipped were Steps 16 through 34 and Steps 37 through 45.

    Yes--if you, like me, could not get the digitizer connector to seat, you've probably got confused on the reassembly order. I had to remove the EMI shield (seven screws), and reinstall it ON TOP of the big flap tongue that comes with the new digitizer, rearranging the order of the connector tails. Note that one of the connectors is a bit shorter than the other, and one of the receptacles on the iPhone is shorter as well. Make sure you're laying down the tails and connectors in the right order when you reassemble! The display data cable--sideways to the others, toward the outer edge, goes first. Then the longer connector, and finally the shorter one. When they're seated, they're seated, and you'll be sure of it.

    You can try reseating the cables, but the likely answer is that your logic board’s backlight circuit is blown. If you power on your phone and you can see an image on the display by shining a bright light on it, your backlight circuit is toast. This is a common repair and very fixable, but requires microsoldering equipment and expertise. It’s not a DIY.

    Jeff Suovanen -

    The third flex cable would be for the front-facing camera, sensors, etc. If you bought a display that doesn’t include those components, you’ll need to transfer them to your new display first, and then you’ll be able to install it and plug everything in. The instructions are over here. Good luck!

    Ira Goldman - Antwort

    Unless you are replacing the speaker you can skip to step 34 as there is no need to remove the logic board.

    My replacement display was not functional, but I didn’t test it until after my adhesive was already applied. Might be worth double-checking the replacement screen works before applying the adhesive at all. (though I’m glad I tried it before closing it up!)

    When reconnecting to the logic board, reverse the order, so display first, then digitizer and finally camera. The front pannel slides into small edge of the backchannel. So start at the top when you put front and back together.

    be sure battery is disconnected before reassembling the display —in case you reconnected it to position battery

    There is one more step after this.

    You must remove some metal part before you push out the camera ring.

    Also must have new metal part because after you take out (metal part) cant back agin the same part.

    Sry for my english.

    When I did it, the metal part didn’t pop out and stayed in. I just lined it up with the screw hole as the metal part also had a hole. I assume it’s to bridge something. Hope this helps.

    • Nutze das spitze Ende eines Spudgers, um das Antennenkabel von seinem Anschluss in der oberen rechten Ecke des Logic Boards zu lösen.

    It is still recommended to disconnect the antenna in this step as it will allow some slack you may need but tugging or pulling on the antenna cable down at the speaker could still damage it so be patience. Also lift on the connection from the metal portion as lifting from the cable could cause it to snap.

    Bryan Solo - Antwort

    • Nutze das spitze Ende eines Spudgers, um das Antennenkabel von seinem Anschluss in der unteren linken Ecke des Logic Boards zu lösen.

    Be super careful here, pry the cable by the brass connector so as not to snap it off

    Andrew Truglia - Antwort

    During reassembly: be aware that the replacement antenna connector (the one that comes as part of the lightning port assembly) might be a very snug fit here. It probably took me close to 10 minutes to get mine on. Thankfully the little sucker is stronger than it looks, or else I would have smushed it flat multiple times. You’ll know that you finally have it when it lightly snaps in place.

    crimsontideaggie - Antwort

    • Schiebe das flache Ende vom Spudger unter das Flachbandkabel vom Lightning Anschluss. Nun hebst du es an, um das Kabel von seinem Anschluss auf dem Logic Board zu lösen.

    Reassembly: A lot of adhesive held this cable down. Had difficulty getting this ribbon cable reconnected to the socket; it kept popping back up. I think the antenna cable was not exactly where it needed to be, and I had to mess with logic board a bit to make sure the antenna cable was wedged down where it needed to be.

    Heidi Moser - Antwort

    Unless you are replacing the speaker you may skip to step 46 as removal of the logic board is not necessary.

    Bryan Solo - Antwort

    • Jetzt ziehe vorsichtig das Antennenkabel hoch, um es von den zwei Clips an der rechten Seite des Logic Boards wegzuführen.

    nope, don't bother taking the logic board out if your just replacing the lightning connector. when removing the speaker in the steps after you can just fold it over to the side leaving it connected by the antenna. obviously not very professional but saves a very lot of messing with the 6s's stupid wee plastic clips, brackets and what not.

    • Verwende eine Pinzette, um die Spitzen der Batterieklebestreifen am unteren Rand der Batterie zu entfernen.

    Kommentar hinzufügen

    • Versuche nicht, die Streifen während dieses Vorgangs zu verknittern, es wird sonst schwierig mit ihnen klarzukommen, und sie können nicht wieder geglättet werden.

    • Ziehe einen der Klebestreifen gerade heraus, in Richtung der Unterseite des iPhone.

      • Für beste Ergebnisse ziehst du den Streifen in einem Winkel von 60 ° oder weniger heraus.

    • Der Streifen dehnt sich auf ein Mehrfaches seiner ursprünglichen Länge. Ziehe konstant weiter. Wenn nötig fasse den Streifen wieder näher am das IPhone.

    • Weiterziehen, bis der Streifen vollständig entfernt ist.

    • Wenn die Batterie-Klebelaschen an irgendeiner Stelle während des Entfernungsvorgangs abbrechen, verwende deine Finger odere eine stumpfe Pinzette, um die verbleibende Länge des Klebstoffs abzuziehen.

      • Wenn einer der Klebestreifen während dieser Prozedur unter der Batterie abreißt und nicht erreicht werden kann, entferne den restlichen Streifen und gehen dann zu Schritt 48.

    Kommentar hinzufügen

    • Wiederhole den vorherigen Schritt für den zweiten Klebestreifen.

      • Benutze eine Hand, um die Batterie zu halten, während du den zweiten Streifen entfernst, oder der Streifen kann die Batterie aus dem Telefon schleudern, sobald sie sich vom hinteren Gehäuse löst.

    Kommentar hinzufügen

    • Wenn du alle drei Klebestreifen erfolgreich entfernt hast, fahre mit dem nächsten Schritt fort. Andernfalls musst du den Akku aus dem hinteren Gehäuse herausziehen.

    • Bereite einen iOpener vor und wende ihn auf die Rückseite des hinteren Gehäuses direkt über die Batterie an. Alternativ kannst du Hitze mit einer Heißluftpistole oder Fön erzeugen.

    • Nach etwa einer Minute, drehst du das Telefon um und verwendest eine Plastikkarte, um den verbleibenden Kleber hinter der Batterie zu entfernen.

    When replacing this harness/flex, the mute switch is not supplies with the REQUIRED bracket. There is no way to securely attach the mute switch to the original mute bracket or to a replacement bracket. The supplied mute switch only (less bracket) makes this entire repair useless as there is no way to fasten the switch to a used or replacement bracket as it is all one assebmly. SOLUTION: purchase a flex with all metal parts attached to the flex. These are available from other suppliers. Why iFixit sells this one likely because it's cheaper but this repair using their bracketless mute switch is NOT possible.

    A bummer that I discovered your comment after I tried and figured this out myself. This is really frustrating that iFixit does not warn one that the repair can’t work with the part they sell

    • Wenn das Ersatzteil nicht mit der Abdeckung des Stumm-Schalters geliefert wurde, musst du die Schalterabdeckung entfernen, und sie auf das neue Teil übertragen.

      • Drücke die Schalterabdeckung mit dem flachen Ende des Spudgers nach unten und halte die alte Halterung gut fest.

      • Verwende eine Pinzette oder deine Finger, um die Schalterabdeckung vorsichtig zu schwenken, so dass die Schalterabdeckungsstifte aus ihren Clips herausgleiten.

      • Hebe die Schalterabdeckung gerade nach oben weg.

    • Um die Abdeckung des Stumm-Schalters auf die neue obere Kabelbaugruppe zu installieren, führe die Schritte in umgekehrter Reihenfolge aus.

      • Die Stifte sollten nahe der Clipöffnung liegen. Versuche nicht, die Stifte weit in die Clips zu drücken. Die Schalterabdeckung wird sicher gehalten, sobald du die Halterung wieder auf das Gehäuse schraubst.

      • Die Schalterabdeckung kann nur in einer bestimmten Richtung eingesetzt werden. Wenn es dir schwer fällt, die Schalterabdeckung auf das neue Teil zu setzen, versuche, den Schalter so zu schalten, dass der schwarze hervorstehende Hebel in einer anderen Position ist.

    • Bevor du das iPhone wieder zusammensetzt, überprüfe alle Schalter und Tasten, um zu sehen, ob sie physisch funktionieren.

    • Fasse die Metallleiste hinter einer der beiden Tastenabdeckungen der Lautstärkeregelung an und ziehe die Tastenabdeckung aus ihrem Sitz im Rückgehäuse.

    • Achte beim Einbau auf die richtige Ausrichtung: die Metallleiste sollte nach unten klappen, in Richtung Rückseite des Gehäuses.

    I changed the backcover and the buttons. The new buttons had no little round metal knobs in the middle. If these knobs are missing, you can't use the switches. I removed the metal knobs carefully with a scalpel and glued them to the new buttons.
