    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

    @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 - 返信

    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’

    is it possible to change my battery on my iphone 6s and use a battery that has been already used in another 6s

    morgan durnford - 返信

    Yeah it would work, but if the battery heath on the 2nd battery is bad, just get a new one.

    Charles Bejarano -

    @moe6802 Removing the battery can damage it, and it shouldn’t be used afterward. It may seem fine, but even minor battery damage can lead to a fire hazard. Not worth it for such a cheap part. If you need a battery, just get a new one.

    How do you discharge a battery? Do you just let the battery drain or is there something less time consuming that you can do?

    There is no easy way to discharge the battery in “less time”. Perhaps the fastest way is to play a visually-complex modern game or otherwise make your phone do a lot of work.

    My screws aren’t coming out either. I’ve loosened them, but they aren’t coming out. I’ve shaken the phone, given it some slight bangs…nothing.

    Jesse Fisher -

    The following info is not given until step 21 in the instructions, and probably too late at that.

    DO NOT disconnect or reconnect any of the cables in this device until the battery itself has been disconnected!

    Don’t skip that step, intending to do it at the end, as you may damage the phone.

    ffissk - 返信

    2 thoughts:

    1) Really? Steps 14-17 are about disconnecting the battery first, and step 17 notes “so it doesn’t get reconnected while you work.” How’d you get to step 21 and miss 14-17?

    2) These pages are user-editable. (Probably (hopefully) “curated” by iFixit staff.) You should add a warning to step 17 (or step 24).

    NOW THAT YOU’VE REMOVED 2 SCREWS, and

    BEFORE YOU SNEEZE them into oblivion, or under the refrigerator (which is the same in many houses)

    MAY I suggest:

    1) Obtain:

    — a piece of paper, such as normal printer paper (not too much writing on one side)

    — a piece of tape, not too sticky, like masking tape (duct tape would be bad)

    ——— 1-1.5 inches (2.5-4 cm) wide

    ——— 6-8 inches (15-20 cm) long

    — a pencil (or pen)

    2) Put the paper on the side of your work area

    3) Lay the tape, sticky side up, on the paper

    4) Fold each end of the tape (~1 inch/2.5cm) back under itself, so the folded part faces the paper. Press the folded-back tape onto the paper

    You now have Sneeze & Wind Insurance for your tiny bits!

    5) Put the 2 pentalobes end down on the top end of the tape, next to each other. Push them a little onto the tape so they stick

    6) Use your pencil to note on the paper next to the screws: “1. Pentalobes”

    Now you may proceed with dissassembly, without worrying about telling the 1.5mm from the 1.6mm screws.

    or about sneezing!

    My phone has a bad battery and a bad connector and I wasn’t able to get all of my photos before it died. Is there any chance I won’t lose them when I replace the battery? Or, is there any way to charge a 6s battery with a bad connector?

    Liz R - 返信

    There is a great chance that photos, which are stored to flash memory, which is solid state memory, which is not affected when power is lost, will be there, right where you left them, once you restore power to your device. You could install a partially charged battery into your phone and then retrieve the important things, like your photos, if you don’t intend to continue using the phone. Else look at replacing the lightning connector assembly. Here: iPhone 6s のLightningコネクタアセンブリの交換

    The P2 is not getting the screws loose at all. I have tried this several times and no budge on my iPhone 6s.

    Cassandra Vigil - 返信

    To avoid to be screwed by lost or mixed screws:

    - Use magnetic pad, wipeable

    - Write the ifixit- steps next to the screws (maybe even with their sizes) and other bits removed

    with a non-permanent marker

    - When finished, simply wipe the pad, and it’s ready for the next repair

    Hope that helps.

    I found a pentalobe 1 driver to work much better.

    joelkevinjones - 返信

    The suction cup didn’t hold at all. I tried Windex and then hospital grade alcohol, but nothing worked. Finally had to use two exacto knife blades to begin lifting the screen. As soon as I got a little gap, used the spudger tool the rest of the way, The small philips driver didn’t fit the screws exactly, but with a little effort they came out. My battery adhesive strips snapped immediately and I had to remove the original battery the “hard way”. The kit came with replacement display adhesive but no explanation how to use it. I got some on - so better than nothing. Overall I’m happy with the results, and the new battery is charging now.

    Daniel Wolf - 返信

    First step problem? Couldn’t get the screws out. I checked my other iPhone and realized the screws were missing!Just started prying it apart.

    Hoyt Smith - 返信

    I went through the whole procedure, replaced the battery and got the screen back on. Then the 2 pentalope screws would not go into their sockets. They sink in all the way and spin, but it appears there are no threads to grab. The screen seems to be in position since I can insert a plug into the headphone jack without trouble. Did anyone else have this problem. Using the phone now with no screws. Yikes.

    Walter Plante - 返信

    Hi Walter, in case you’re still dealing with this or anyone else has the same problem, check that the screw bosses on the bottom of the screen are straight and line up with the screw holes on the case. They should be at a 90° angle to the screen, but they’re easy to accidentally bend and could’ve gotten flattened against the screen.

    I recently had issues with removing the glass with the suction cup. I have done this many times with older generation iPhones but this time the glass seemed sealed on quite solidly. I told myself that the last option would be to use the screwdriver tip. After all my attempts, I transitioned to the option of using the screwdriver tip. Surprisingly, it was the easiest thing ever. I placed the 1mm flathead screwdriver at the interface between the glass and the cover (normal start location) and pried up very gently. Voila, the glass came up and I can’t even notice any dents or scratches. It felt much easier than the suction cup technique. If the suction cup is giving you a hard time consider using that 1mm flathead.

    forhereyesonly - 返信

    This is definetly the best option to open this thing up. I’ve spend 30min with trying to heat it up and remove it using the suction cup. I needed 3sec with the 1mm flat screwdriver and i t was’nt scary at all. No dents nor scratches here too. Thanks for your comment.

    The glue softens pretty easily, so the exact temperature isn’t critical. Get it slightly too hot to touch. If you have trouble, heat it a little more and try again.

    What temperature on the screen separator lcd machine and for how long?

    Manraj Gulati - 返信

    This is the first time I opened my 6s since it was purchased new four years ago. Even without heat, constant and firm works enough to be able to squeeze the flat edge of the spudger. From that point and without any additional pulling from the suction, twist the spudger gently to “walk” it open on both sides.

    Family Juinio - 返信

    I used a hand towel folded in half and a clothes iron on the cotton setting (med-high heat, no steam). Placing the doubled towel between the phone and the iron, I would set the iron down for about 20 seconds (my iron has a timer that beeps when left horizontal for too long). Lift the iron, check the temperature (aiming for just too hot to touch), reposition as needed, repeat. It took me a while, but that’s because I took my time not knowing how fast this would heat. All-in-all, about 2 minutes to reach the right temperature to loosen the adhesive (it IS tenacious).

    Steven James - 返信

    I used a hot-water bottle to keep the iPhone warm while prying patiently, though the moving surface added to the challenge.

    Before that, I put the iPhone - screen facing down - to warm on the coffee cup heater (45°C) of an espresso coffee machine. Half an hour seemed more than enough.

    A hot-water bottle filled with water at 60°C would do the job I think.

    Later repeated the same heating before removing the adhesive strips under the battery (allowed me to extract each strip successfully, rolling it on the body of the spudger).

    And also before putting the new display assembly adhesive under heavy book weight.

    Ark - 返信

    I didn’t have any of the heating tools listed here so I improvised:

    To soften the glue I heated water in a pan (not boiling but quite hot).

    I put the phone in a thick plastic bag in the water for about 20 - 30 seconds. (I checked the bag was properly watertight first by dipping it in water – minus the phone). Maybe I was lucky but the screen came away easily doing it this way.

    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.

    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 - 返信

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

    Joe Koffee - 返信

    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.

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

    A question, has anyone had success removing a cracked (not shattered) screen? My phone has a single diagonal crack from the top right corner down to the left side. Will the suction cup still work?

    goblazers - 返信

    The suction cup material was very stiff and wouldn’t adhere well even after thoroughly cleaning the screen. Applying heat from a hair dryer helped with that, too.

    Karleen Smith - 返信

    A packing tape handle worked well for me instead of the suction cup. I folded a piece of packing tape in half leaving two ends to stick to the part of the screen indicated for the suction cup placement and used the center fold as a handle.

    Diana Riddle - 返信

    I found that a 3rd hand helped here. Lots of heat and as others say, a strong, steady pull, but you are only creating a gap to get the spludger in, not ripping the screen away from the body. Once I created the teeny gap I had someone else get the spludger in to hold it open while I shifted my grip.

    Steve - 返信

    I’ll throw in here for other noobs as someone who just read ALL the comments and had things go pretty well without a hitch.

    Adhesive here goes ALL the way around edge. I think think many people’s frustration comes from in adequate heating and/or only heating the inferior edge area. I went with 5 min of a rice/shoulder thingy, (uniform rectangle folded in half on a plate, 3 min in the microwave) Plate side was hot potato hot and stayed so.

    Other inference and comment curating:

    a. Use pointy spudger end inserted slightly into headphone jack to hold down phone while pulling up;

    b. 2mm lift MAX the insert something to hold while you bring the flat end of the spudger around (I just used the flesh of my finger;

    c. Twist spudger ONLY zero -20 degrees when inserted;

    d. Avoid spudgering above or between the pentab screw holes.

    e. Avoid sticking the spudger in more than 2 mm as you slide up the left and right edges. If you catch, back it out a bit until you can keep sliding.

    Also all props to Ifixit for addressing many issues with earlier versions of this and their replacement kit! A lot of complaints are clearly obsolete now.

    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 - 返信

    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 - 返信

    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 - 返信

    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 - 返信

    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 - 返信

    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.

    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 - 返信

    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!!!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    kpederso -

    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 - 返信

    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 - 返信

    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 - 返信

    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 :-)

    My glass was broken and the suction cup wouldn’t hold on the tape. I used a very thin knife an slowly worked between the glass and the phone frame. Please keep in mind that my phone had been run over by a Ford F150, so I really had nothing to lose.

    What is unfortunately unclear is just how to 1. apply sufficient force and keeping the phone secure with only one hand, 2. whether this is best done on a table to use its opposing surface to secure the phone.

    The suction cup is a worthless tool because flexes too much to provide a good hold. Mine slipped and popped away three times. -The last time causing a crack in the screen.

    ffissk - 返信

    Glad I read these comments about the screen cracking because I was really trying to force this thing open (with some heat applied already), but it wasn’t budging. Kept applying heat and light force and eventually it started coming apart. The suggestion for placing the pointed end of the spudger in the headphone jack while prying up worked for me and an extra set of hands would have been ideal.

    In the end, with the spudger in the headphone jack, placed a guitar pick in between the screen and the backing and slid it along the bottom left. Left the tip of the guitar pick in to hold the gap and then was able to use the spudger to complete the process as shown.

    Beware! I cracked the screen. Used iOpener, iFixit spudger etc. I managed to get the spudger into the gap by the headset socket and worked my way up the left, when I came to do the right the screen was cracked. I was taking it slow and steady but clearly that wasn’t enough. Be VERY careful.

    James - 返信

    Heat is essential, and take it very slowly. Also take seriously the instruction to open just enough to get the spudger in there—then do the real work with that. The suction is just to get started. I had my son insert the spudger as soon as there was any gap at all, then worked it according to the guide.

    I did this on a card table with a vinyl surface so I could lay the phone down. Then I held the metal frame on both sides while pulling the suction cup—my son having the spudger at the ready. Definitely be patient! I had to restart several times when the suction cup popped off and I accidentally reengaged the clips pressing it back on.

    I didn’t have any of the heating tools listed here so I improvised:

    To soften the glue I heated water in a pan (not boiling but quite hot).

    I put the phone in a thick plastic bag in the water for about 20 - 30 seconds. (I checked the bag was properly watertight first by dipping it in water – minus the phone). Maybe I was lucky but the screen came away easily doing it this way.

    Henrik Dahle - 返信

    I did the hair dryer three or four times and applied all of the pressure i could on the suction cup and it just wouldn’t budge. My phone is old and i had a waterproof case on it for a long time that really pressed down on the glass so it would seal. I think having that on for three or more years really sealed the glass!!!! Didn’t want to break it so will live with my battery as is…..it last most of the day and i am usually around a car charger or home. Just thought i would add a comment that said man i gave it my best shot and opted not to do it. I really liked the kit though and the tool will come in pretty handy to repair other small things.

    This was waaaaay the hardest bit for me. Took ages Almost gave up. Allow AT LEAST twenty minutes. Endless patience pulling, then resting for a bit then pulling again. S.T.E.A.D.Y Keep at it long after your inner voice is saying ‘why did you think you could do this. You have never mended anything in your life.’ Then you see the gap and like a steady bomb disposal expert you quietly winkle it apart.

    Cindy Clarke - 返信

    Used heat from a hairdryer, gentle pulling to lift the glass at the position above the headphone jack one to 2 millimetres with the suction cup, then put my thumbnail in the gap and pulled up gently a bit more to fit the spudger, and mainly slid the spudger as indicated around the glass, bottom first, and then sides to within about a centimetre of the top at most, to release the display. I found very little prying is needed. Once a gap of about a millimetre or 2 is created, that is enough to release the display from the adhesive.

    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 - 返信

    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 - 返信

    There are two relatively delicate brackets that the two P2 Pentalobe screws screw into. They can be easily bent during this prying open process. I ruined one on my phone and I’m hoping the phone will function with just one bracket.

    dougdalglish - 返信

    +1 on the pointy knife to get the screen pried up. I couldn’t get the suction cup or tape to adhere well enough due to the glass being so shattered. I heated it for quite a while with the hair dryer on high, got a very sharp knife tip under the glass where the “notch” is, and used that to pry upward while another person slid the end of the spudger into the gap I was holding open with the knife. This one step was basically a three-handed job.

    It sounds like several people, including myself, had trouble charging the new replacement battery past about 10%. This ended up being due to the new battery not having a non-conductive insulator. The way to solve this is by adding a small piece of electrical tape to cover the battery connector before screwing in the battery connector bracket over it. You may want to do this on the first go-around.

    To reduce risk of battery arcing , as soon as the old battery connector was detached, I wrapped it with insulation from connection all the way to the battery body. Did the same with the new battery to eliminate concerns about shorts while checking fit position to assure the connector would match up with the receiver. Only removed the insulation after all other connections had been restored, so plugging in the battery was the last step before closing the case.

    Note carefully the order that they are removed.  My new display had them in the WRONG order and I spent about 2 minutes trying to figure out what was wrong until I compared the new screen with the old screen and saw that they were in wrong sequence.  Fortunately they were relatively easy to fold out of the way and put them in the right order.  After that they popped right into place.  The new cables don’t have the “fold” yet so display had to be held at 90 degrees until all three were installed and the cover reattached.

    I can't seem to get the digitizer cable to snap back into place. Any suggestions?

    gbmazur - 返信

    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.

    Dennis Gagomiros - 返信

    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 -

    I made the same mistake and I'm wondering if you got a fix for it? Is the damage done on the screen assembly or phone itself?

    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!

    If you're replacing the adhesive, be sure to check the two tabs on the display that receive the pentalobe screws before setting the display on the new adhesive. The tabs on my display were bent inward slightly—just out of reach of the pentalobe screws. I didn't bend these out before setting the display and was forced to re-open the display to adjust them, ruining my carefully placed adhesive.

    If reapplying adhesive, I would strongly recommend that you wait until you are reassembling the phone. Otherwise, trust me, it gets really sticky and limits your mobility around the phone. I had it all over my fingers by the time I finally got the old battery out and the new one in.

    Justin Tilghman - 返信

    Removing the battery was a challenge as the old adhesive snapped before it came out so I had to use a hair dryer to warm the adhesive before slowly peeling the battery off. I still manage to puncture the batter and nearly had a fire. When inserting the new battery I didn’t leave enough room for the connector to fit beside it so I had to pull it off, plug the connector into its port, then insert the battery. I think the instructions should warn you to leave enough room for the connector to tuck in beside it.

    The kit came with a new adhesive gasket but I could not find the instructions on how to install it. But after 45 minutes I had it done and my iPhone 6S is back in working order. Don’t forget to ‘hard’ reset the phone on start up, run the new battery all the way down. Otherwise this is a very good value time and money wise.

    When i assembled my new homebutton, I couldn’t mange to make it work properly. The screws, as described earlier, had to be adjusted but even this wasn’t enough. Once I put the iPhone case together and tightened up the screws it would push the metal cover all the way so the button wouldn’t click. After trying multiple screw settings I came to a somewhat unorthodox solution. I placed a piece of folded paper under the left corner of the metal cover. Now it wouldn`t press the button anymore and the paper keeps everything in place until fully reassembled.

    Slow and steady is the name of the game here. Heat it with a hair dryer, push the home button up through the bottom (as if you were pressing it, just a little harder), and keep heating it while you have it stretched. Eventually it will sort of snap out on one side, and then slowly work the pressure from underneath around the edge.

    When replacing the ribbon cable assembly, make sure to get the “blob” correctly centered over its two pin holes. One is ringed with metal, and one isn’t. When you have the blob over the pin holes, it helps to align the connector correctly. Once the blob is in place, push back the edge of the connector facing up toward the base of the screen until it snaps into place behind a little plastic ledge just above the blob. Once that’s done, reconnecting the top cap is much simpler.

    On reassembly two very important things...1 - remember to remove the blue/green protective plastic cover from the back of the new screen before putting it back together. You will notice the tab sticking off to the right side of the screen near the volume buttons. 2- take special note of how the two tabs sticking out at the bottom of your replacement screen on either side of your home button. They should be close to vertical or perpendicular to the screen face or they won't be close enough to start the pentalobe screw when finishing the reassembly. Tried to post picture but couldn't figure out how to. You can do this! ;-)

Eder Macario - 返信

Solution worked very well - a couple of comments: 1. With a cracked screen the suction cup doesn't hold very well, I was nevertheless able to get the screen corner off with some heavy prying above the headphone jack as suggested in step 4. 2. In the replacement part I received, the order of the digitizer and camera cables was reversed, I had to tuck the digitizer cable back under the camera cable to get them down in the correct order. Great pictures and guide from ifixit.

stread777 - 返信

Agree with both points. The guide is also missing steps (or mention of) moving the camera/sensor/etc to the new digitizer. I didn't think about it until I wondered why the old screen had 3 cables and the new one only had 2.

nerdatheart -

Thanks for the tip, I had the same issue with the suction cup not working on the cracked screen. Applying clear packaging tape over the screen helped but it still didn't come apart. Ended up using a blow dryer on the highest setting to help melt the adhesive around the bottom of the phone (being careful to not let it heat up too long) which eventually made it possible to wedge the spudge inside.

The guide and photos were great along with the replacement part from iFixit. Probably the easiest screen replacement I've done so far.

gotchay -

Try putting packing tape in the center of the screen. This will keep the glass chunks in and the suction cup will stick to it.

You may have not properly seated the proximity sensor, check to assure all plastic label stickers have been removed from the from and that it is properly seated. If it is damaged you will have to purchase a new flex.

you may have bent the ribbon cable on accident, those parts are very inexpensive and easy to replace.

I have order several different iPhone 6S screens from my supplier. When testing the screens I noticed without any other components plugged in (proximity sensor) just the screen I can use touch unless I cover the ear speaker area. The display doesn't dim which I wouldn't expect it to without the proximity sensor plugged in. But, is this a bad screen or a sensor of some kind in the actual screen cabling that senses light without proximity sensor?

Brady Davidson - 返信

I have noticed with some cheaper 6S screens that the proximity sensor will not work. If that is the case for you make sure that you scratch off the black film that is on the glass where the proximity sensor is suppose to go. It is not the prettiest thing but it is functional!

I've disconnected the 3 seperate pins (display data, digitizer and camera flex) why when i search for a screen on say amazon or ebay do the replacements only have 2??

A Fearn - 返信

The third connector is for the front-facing camera flex/sensor assembly. A lot of screens are sold without it, so you have to transfer that part over from your old display before you reassemble everything. At the top of this guide, you'll find a link to a longer/alternate guide for transferring components over to a bare-bones replacement screen. If you prefer to save yourself the hassle, just stick with the guide you're seeing here and use the pre-assembled part linked at the top.

It could be the part itself is defective or you bent a ribbon cable while putting it together. I had a similar issue once. The LCD worked perfectly fine when I tested it before I popped the screen back on. When I popped the screen in it didn't work, when I popped the screen back out with the cables still connected it worked. I returned the screen and swapped it out with a new one and it worked fine.

TLDR: it's probably the replacement screen itself.

WARNING!: You should NOT reconnect your battery FPC cable / connector until the VERY LAST reassembly step! Modify your reassembly procedure to move this "re-connection" of the battery connector until very last. I can't stress this enough. My logic board is now burned (it smoked upon reconnecting the LCD replacement part, because the battery was already reconnected and "live". The problem is that if you don't have the FPC connector aligned just perfect to the header (on the logic board), you create a momentary short (when the pins aren't aligned well)... this causes the Logic board to instantly burn. Save yourself trouble.

###You have been warned###

enoughstatic - 返信

Sorry to hear you had such a bad outcome. The guide directs you to disconnect the battery first and reconnect it last, which is the correct procedure (and just good practice for electronics repair in general). There is no danger if the steps are followed in order. I don't know if it's any consolation, but at this point you most likely have a blown backlight circuit, which is a straightforward fix for a good microsoldering expert. There are several that frequent our Answers forum, so you may want to reach out to one of them to see about restoring your phone to working order. Good luck!

The phone would not boot! The battery was at about 15% before I started. After I replaced the display the phone would not boot. After disassembly & reassembly numerous times looking for a problem, even reinstalling the old display-no boot. In final desperation I plugged in the charger-the phone booted! Apparently if the battery voltage gets too low it will not start the phone after the battery has been disconnected or the phone disassembled.

I don’t know if this problem has an explanation or was unique to my repair.

Thank you for a most detailed and insightful tutorial! This my 4th i-Phone screen repair/replacement and this was by far the best tutorial I have utilized. There were no surprises and the sequential photos really made this job safe for myself AND the phone!

Nice tutorial!

i have replaced screen and new screen is half black with the other half show semi white and with vertyical lines…

Just a warning: my replacement screen does not work well with polarized glasses. It blacks out in the normal ‘vertical’ position. Whereas my original apple screen worked great with polarized glasses when vertical and only slightly dimmed when in the horizontal position.

I have done this reapair but force touch isn’t working on the new screen. Any ideas on why?

My new screen also has a slight pink tone to it, but I think I’ll get used to it and probably wont think of it. As long as I get my force touch to work again..

I just finished a full screen assembly replacement and all seemed to go smoothly. However, like Kellan, Once I reassembled and turned the phone on, it has been stuck in an endless reboot loop of showing the Apple logo for a few seconds, then turning off and repeating.

Any ideas what’s wrong?

@jonelison Try the suggestions here and here. Good luck!

Just finished the repair on my wife’s phone. Really straight forward. Moving the home button was really easy too!! Turned the phone back on and everything worked just as it should. Thanks!!

Stephen Silva - 返信

Hi all! I replaced the screen according to the instructions. But when i start up the phone the display shows vertical stripes across the screen. The connectors and cables don’t show any obvious damage. When I reinstall the old screen no problems appear. What could be the problem?

Martijn Mooij - 返信

I completed this guide and it went smoothly. The hardest part was installing new screen adhesive and removing and installing the home button onto the new screen without damaging it. Patience is needed to complete this without any problems. I notice a slight color difference between the OEM screen and my repacement screen. I took a phone call shortly after finishing my install and noticed that the new ear speaker does not sound good. It sounds like it has a lot of feedback, which my 2 year old oem speaker had none of.

Do I need the Display Assembly Adhesive in order to replace a broken screen?

Tobias Vielmetter-Diekmann - 返信

@tividi Replacing the display assembly adhesive is recommended but not required. If you get the fix kit linked at the top of this guide, it comes with replacement adhesive.

Jeff Suovanen -

Hello, I completed the guide and replaced the new screen from ifixit. But the screen wouldn’t turn on. I replaced the original cracked screen to check if I had done anything wrong… Its working fine…. Any solutions?

vimaladithya - 返信

This is my first repair, and everything is great except now that I have came to the last step and am unsure on how to reassemble the device; I do not know what you mean by “in reverse order". Are you saying to start from step 28 and go all the way back to step 1?? Prompt answers are greatly appreciated.

I tried this, but my screen wasn’t broken? so why should I do this?

Carl Jefferson - 返信

Similar issue as noted above, the new screen is dead. I can get the original cracked screen to work, but can’t get anything on the new. Second pro replacement kit i’ve gotten that was dead after replacement. Replaced quite a few screens in the past, never had an issue. Would have been less trouble to pay the extra twenty bucks for the guy at the mall to do it.

jmason - 返信

Hi question.

If screen was broken. But Home button and touch ID work. If I will replace the screen. I will not have a problem with touch ID in the feature?

Arkady Shustov - 返信

no because you are you going to transfer the home button on to the new screen.

hilmary -

good guide! repair done

Spence - 返信

cool. success. just remember when reattaching the 3 cables at the end that the 2 horizontal ones are in the right order. I spent 10 minutes trying to connect the first cable as it was actually on top of the second cable (from when I added the camera, prox sensor ,etc).

just required flip on over the other at the base of the cables. and then they connected properly.

altomic - 返信

Thank you, this guide worked perfectly and the repair process was relatively simple. The only tricky bit was reconnecting the home button connector—it didn’t ‘click’ clearly into place so I wasn’t sure if I did it right, and I didn’t want to press too hard. After reconnecting the new display, I powered the phone on and confirmed that the home button worked before removing the adhesive release liner and finishing the repair.

philballman - 返信

I’m having the same issue with this install as some above have had: I install the replacement screen, reassemble everything, but when I press to turn on or plug in the phone nothing happens. The screen is just black. The old screen worked fine, but was only cracked. I’ve opened everything back up to check the cables/connections, disconnected everything, reconnected again, tried booting, and still nothing. Did I(we) just get a glitchy replacement? I’d love to see a response to this particular issue if anyone’s come across the same thing. Thanks.

davejmoz - 返信

Reconnect your old screen and see if it still works as expected. If it does, you may have received a defective replacement screen. If it doesn’t, you may have damaged something during your repair. Did you disconnect the battery when removing and installing the screen as instructed?

Jeff Suovanen -

Fix went smoothly, and the display is fully functional - but despite replacing the display adhesive, the sides of the screen don’t seem to want to stay tightly fit. Anyone know the reason for this? And perhaps a fix?

Thanks

Brooks Anderson - 返信

Stuck on one section while installing the new screen, adding the Touch ID/Home Button and when screwing the plate that holds the Touch ID/Home Button from the back, the screws do not reach in enough to screw into the holes. Tried pushing down as hard as I could without damaging the assembly. Screws will fit into the old screen assembly but not the new assembly from IFIXIT.

Shane - 返信

Thanks for censoring my post. The real &&^&^$^ deal.

awesom_o - 返信

@awesom_o I deleted your comment because it contained incorrect information—when performed as instructed, this repair does not disable any of the phone’s functions. Many, many people have done this with no problem, so to say it “sucks” and tell everyone not to try it is misleading. That said, I can tell you were frustrated and I’m sorry you had a bad experience. If you want to share your thoughts in a slightly more constructive, less-scaremongery fashion, I’ll be happy to leave them up. The point of having a comment system is to help each other identify (and hopefully resolve) issues like the ones you experienced. You can also try the Answers forum if you want detailed help. Plus, if you bought your parts from iFixit, we have a crack team of customer service reps dedicated to helping you resolve problems and making sure you didn’t get a defective part. You just have to reach out. Hope this helps.

Jeff Suovanen -

As at least one person stated, I wasn’t sure the home button cable was attached. It doesn’t click in. It’s a matter of having it in the right place, and then screwing the plate down on it. Fortunately, I had it placed properly, and upon powering up, it worked. Other than that, the only challenge is dealing with tiny screws with old eyeballs. :) Great guide!

Gregory Aden - 返信

Mike Jacobs - 返信

Excellent guide. Due to the mechanics of adding prerequisite guides, I am guessing the step about lining up the new adhesive along the edges of the bottom panel was omitted because it doesn’t work in reverse. The comments above are helpful in that regard. Pretty self-explanatory, though. Overall, great job.

I have replaced the screen of my iPhone 6S, but 3D Touch does not work. Is this feature missing from the screen from iFixit or is there something I may have done wrong ?

Julien Pierron - 返信

The iFixit part should be fully functional, including 3D Touch. If your old screen still works, you could try reinstalling it as a quick test—if 3D Touch works again, then your new screen may be defective and you should exchange it. Reach out to customer support and they can fix you up. Good luck!

Jeff Suovanen -

I was hesitant to do this repair myself, but it went fine. All the additional comments at each step were helpful. I combined this with a battery replacement and a new life proof case and it’s like I have a new phone! I’m glad I went with ifixit, the tools, packaging and support were all top-notch.

Please try to reseat the digitizer ZIF connecter (the one under the front camera cable). Hope this helps!! I work at a repair place, so please reply to me if it doesn’t so I can assist you.

Jake Rose -

Managed to do this today and everything went great following this guide! Except for one thing: my 6S frame is bent (#bendgate) and I’m pretty sure this is why the new digitizer assembly doesn’t sit quite completely flat on the end that is bent… Does anyone have any suggestions for this? Right now near the top the screen isn’t flush and has a visible gap between it and the back/frame of the rest of the phone…

This is the second time I’ve saved an iPhone using repair parts kit from ifixit! The screen kit was delivered on time yesterday. This morning opened the repair kit, everything is well packaged and the tool kit and parts are very high quality with everything you need. The most difficult part of the process is prying the old screen off. I used a hair dryer to heat the phone front and back to loosen the adhesive. Then I used the suction cup tool to pull on the screen. It took a while but eventually the screen started to come off and then I was able to use the pry tool to work it completely loose. I overtightened one of the screws on the home button assembly, stripping the hole so the screw would not stay in place. The guide warns against this! I had to leave the screw out but the phone seemed to work fine without it. The phone looks and operates like new now!

David Parker - 返信

For extra excitement, I had no replacement adhesive…so I used some Sugru for this project. Very easy to apply with the spludger.

Gabriel - 返信

Excellent guide and all steps worked like a charm.

maybe just one remark: if the display is not broken (mine needed to be replaced due to a blind corner) the adhesive is so strong that simply pulling it up with the suction cup will take forever. I used a hair dryer to soften the glue and then the display came loose with ease…

Hello all, what about the screen gasket. Did that come with your kit? How do I get one of those?

cediv - 返信

Comes with the kit and is also available separately. Please see the parts list at the top of the guide.

Jeff Suovanen -

Thank you! iPhone 6S, screen cracked to a million pieces. The clear packing tape worked like a charm to secure the broken glass AND to make the “handle” to remove the screen assembly. Using the hair dryer to warm up the edges was necessary. After that, the screen assemble came off easily. The longest, most tedious part, was the removal of the old adhesive and cleaning of the the case with alcohol. Very important step to ensure the new adhesive sticks, retaining the water resistance of the device.

After clicking the screen assembly in place, I discovered the the 2 bottom screws wouldn’t bite into the holes inside. So I had to remove the new screen, to bend the holes back toward the edge. so the screws would reach. Luckily I had not applied pressure or heat yet.

Time consuming? yes, but not very difficult. Just don’t rush it, make sure you have time, and read the whole guide before you even start.

Big Al - 返信

What great guide. And what a great feeling to repair and upgrade your own electronics. Thank you iFixit!

orocasa - 返信

Success! This was a fantastic guide, but I ended up having to take it to a shop, because after three tries the screen still wouldn’t light up. The tech was able to use my iFixit parts, though. He said I had bent the pins on the LCD cable. Dang. And that one actually seemed relatively easy to reattach (unlike the digitizer cable). Despite the mistake I made, it was fun to take the phone apart, and I feel pretty bada** knowing how it all fits together now. I’ll definitely order from ifixit again. Thank you for enabling all of us!

Just tried the whole thing and everything went well but the homw button is not working. any help please?

Bassic Lessons - 返信

Replacing the battery and the screen took me about thirty minutes. The most difficult part of the repair was getting the battery cable snapped on and snapping the screen back into place (you have to slide it up a little bit at the top before you can snap in the rest of it), but other than that it was much easier than i thought. The screen is raised slightly and it appears to have a little more red light than the original screen, but it isn’t enough of a difference to complain.

It sounds like you have an iPhone 6. A fully assembled iPhone 6 screen has four connectors; the iPhone 6s screen has three. Check the model number on the back of your iPhone to verify.

did you ever figure this out? I am having a similar problem. This dissent happen the first time I replaced a 6S screen. But thing time, I am getting a lot of ghost touches. makes typing and scrolling impossible. Thanks

Big Al -

I replaced the iPhone 6S screen assembly with the replacement from ifixit (my second 6S I have done) but it seems the digitizer is not calibrated correctly as it is hard to type accurately, and scrolling in apps like YouTube and Facebook is very jittery. Like there is more than one point being touched.

for example, every time I try to type “$” it registers a “7” as well. (“$7”) could there be something shrink with the part? Maybe something wrong with the installation?

Big Al - 返信

Hi Big Al,

It does sound like the digitizer is receiving additional touch signals. Please contact our customer support and we’ll get that sorted out for you.

Arthur Shi -

I replaced my Iphone 6s screen with a cheapest one from Amazon rather then the one propose on Ifixit, with the original home button. But now the phone is blocked on this message : Iphone is disable connect to itunes. Will your screen prevent the phone of the problem? Could it work with an original screen ? Thank you so much for your help

Great guide! Maybe add the fact that for some 3rd party displays, you also need to transfer the front speaker and camera assembly (as someone said before, it can be done by following step 23-30 from this guide: '''iPhone 6s Front-Facing Camera and Sensor Assembly Replacement''')

I transferred over the home button and now I do not have touch ID available… everything else works. How can I fix this issue?

Michael Jakuszewski - 返信

This all worked great EXCEPT I can’t get the home button to “click”. When I’m repositioning it and adding the shield I can feel how it physically clicks, but as soon as I add the three screws, it seems to get locked in place and won’t click. Reassembling the phone, the home button seems to sit lower in the screen than normal and won’t click. I’ve taken it apart and reassembled several times but can’t figure out how to get the home button to seat correctly.

Anthony H - 返信

Hi Anthony! You may need to adjust the tightness of the three screws in order for the Home Button to click. Carefully test the button and loosen the screws slightly until it clicks.

Arthur Shi -

It’s become clear that the home button simply doesn’t fit into the hole in the new screen. When I put it back in the old screen, it sits right in the hole, clearly a proper fit, and doesn’t slide around. In the replacement screen it just doesn’t fit the hole. I can try to line it up, but it doesn’t “drop” (from the back) into the cutout. Is there some issue with proper sizing of the home button holes on the 6S replacement screens?

Anthony H -

Sorry to hear of your troubles! I haven’t heard of that issue before…it maybe that you got a defect screen. Please contact our customer support!

Arthur Shi -

Replacing a shattered screen with a new one. Full replacement including the home button, etc. After reassembling, the screen came on for a while, complained of home button not working and after about one minute went off. Dismantled, checked everything all over again. The screen is responsive but no display. A mess!

You have to be carefull if you buy the screen only because it does not come with the rear camera or phone speaker and you’ll have to pull it out of the old or damage screen. I did it taking pictures of wen I was disassembling the Phone and front camera so I did not forget how to assembly the front camera and the phone speaker

I purchased a replacement screen for my 6s from iFixit, and replaced my shattered screen using this guide. Sadly, I found out after the fact that that this replacement breaks Apple Pay/Wallet. Everything else works just fine, but I’d suggest a clear disclaimer at the beginning of this guide that explains this huge caveat. I would have looked for an alternative had I known better.

Brian Miller - 返信

Hi Brian,

The screen replacement should not break the Apple Pay/Wallet functionality. It sounds like the NFC capabilities which Apple Pay uses may be disrupted. I would suggest carefully rechecking the press connectors to make sure they’re all fully seated, and look for any torn cables.

Arthur Shi -

Great guide! Still using this device and repaired the screen for the second time now. Thanks a lot!

What are some possibilities if you fail to disconnect the battery during installing the new screen?

Any suggestions?

This is mabey the 10th screen replacementI’ve done, and I just want to say it’s just lazy and unhelpful to tell a beginner to just do the steps in reverse to put it back together.

GNtechIRL -

It may be a faulty screen. The first thing I’d check is if the backlight is blown. Turn on the iPhone and shine a bright light at the screen. If you can see unlit graphics, then it’s the screen backlight. Please contact our customer support and we will get the issue resolved!

Arthur Shi -

Did you not forgot to take off the protection plate at the back of the screen? And the front camera and earphone speaker?
