Over the years, we've seen the iPhone evolve—and grow. It began as just the iPhone. Soon it learned how to 3G, it gained an S (it would lose and gain this every other year), and it even learned to read fingerprints. Years of hard work and dedication have made the iPhone into what it is today, the iPhone 6 Plus. Join us live as we explore this gargantuan iPhone 6 Plus.

Oh, were you looking for the normal-sized iPhone 6 teardown? We've got that, too.

    • News flash from the Land Down Under:

    • The line was already 50 people strong yesterday around 1 PM local Aussie time.

    • By 7 AM there were close to a thousand people in line.

    • Our teardown team was #53 in line, and the Apple Store only had 40 iPhone 6 Plus models in stock.

    • But hey, no worries—we got our hands on an iPhone 6 Plus, all thanks to a wonderful Australian iFixit fan named Ricky. Thanks Ricky!

    • It turns out Ricky is not related to this Ricky.

    • After our little Apple Store adventure, we skedaddled back to MacFixit Australia, where the teardown's taking place. We want to send out a big thanks to our good friends at MacFixit for letting us use their office. They stock Mac and iPhone upgrades/accessories, and also carry our iFixit toolkits. Thanks MacFixit Australia!

    • Coming soon to a supermarket near you, the iPhone 6 Plus Pop-Tarts Bluetooth/NFC speaker.

    • The iPhone 6 Plus measures in at 158.1 mm long, 77.8 mm wide, and 7.1 mm thick. Quite literally bigger than a Pop-Tart.

    • At 7.1 mm, it's the thicker of the new crop of iPhones—but thickness is the one dimension in which it undercuts last year's iPhone 5s, which measured 7.6 mm.

  4. iPhone 6 Plus Teardown: 手順 4、 3の画像 1 iPhone 6 Plus Teardown: 手順 4、 3の画像 2 iPhone 6 Plus Teardown: 手順 4、 3の画像 3
    • Just like the iPhone 5s, the iPhone 6 Plus is available in three different colors: Silver, Gold, and Space Gray. Of course we went for the Gold.

    • The iPhone 6 Plus is identified by its model number: A1524.

    • Much to the distress of some reviewers, both iPhone 6 models feature a noticable camera "bump". It seems that Apple was unable to shave enough thickness off of the camera sensor to keep it flush with the rest of the chassis. The lens cover may be made out of sapphire glass, but we're still concerned about what this design choice might mean for durability.

    • Much like the HTC One M8, the iPhone 6 Plus features two plastic antenna stripes on the outer case. These stripes help with wireless reception that would otherwise be blocked by an all-metal outer case.

    I'm pretty sure the lens cover is no longer made of sapphire. Can you guys confirm that?

    Joey Geraci - 返信

    Apple's technical specification explicitly states that it IS sapphire.

    • It seems Apple is reluctant to switch from Pentalobe screws to good ol' regular Phillips screws. Luckily, we brought our Pro Tech Screwdriver Set to remove those pesky Pentalobe screws.

    • While proprietary screws are not our favorite, we are happy that we don't have to go straight to heat.

    • It's iSclack time! This handy tool allows us to easily shuck the display assembly from the rear enclosure.

    • We proceed cautiously, remembering the surprise from last time.

    • With no noticeable booby traps, we proceed to open our little gold treasure chest.

    • Apple's rerouting of the Touch ID sensor cable recalls the cleaner design (and safer opening procedure) of the iPhone 5—the iPhone with the highest repairability score to date.

    • Much like iPhones of the past, the display assembly cables are held securely to the logic board by a metal bracket.

  6. iPhone 6 Plus Teardown: 手順 7、 1の画像 1
    • With the display assembly removed, we get our first look at the innards of the iPhone 6 Plus.

    • The internal layout of the iPhone 6 Plus appears to be similar to the 5s, but we immediately notice the sheer size of the battery. Based on its volume alone, we suspect the iPhone 6 Plus will be no slouch when it comes to battery life.

    any word on the display maker/materials?

    • The home button assembly is secured by a metal bracket. Removing the bracket allows us to simply pop the home button off the front panel assembly.

    • This design is on-par with last year's home button—modular, if a bit time-consuming to get to in the event of a repair.

  8. iPhone 6 Plus Teardown: 手順 9、 2の画像 1 iPhone 6 Plus Teardown: 手順 9、 2の画像 2
    • The front-facing camera is part of a larger cable assembly, which includes the earpiece speaker, microphone, and ambient light sensor. Both reside on the front panel assembly.

    I'm a little confused.. Shouldn't there be mroe of a teardown on the screen? Seems the backplate on the LCD would have some ribboncable hidden beneath it?

    MobiFix - 返信

    Can the front camera b removed without interupting the function of the earpiece speaker?

    lzsdn - 返信

    My iphone 6 plus has a webbed screen however everything works 100%. I bought a replacement "glass front screen" off ebay and attempted to replace it yesterday. It appears that the front glass screen is glued onto the backplate. Can you confirm? I can provide an image of the screen I bought on ebay if that helps. Thanks

  9. iPhone 6 Plus Teardown: 手順 10、 1の画像 1
    • Next we decide to remove the metal plate from the front panel assembly.

    • In a big win for repairability, Apple has completely redesigned how the home button connects to the main board. Gone is the awkwardly short and fragile cable of the iPhone 5s days. Instead, Apple has made the effort to run the home button cable all the way to the opposite end of the phone. We're quite happy to see this improvement!

    • We can't think of a reason to extend the cable this way except to improve repairability. Thank you, Apple.

    Apple is most likely primarily focused on the ease of assembly rather than ease of repair.

    Hacked2123 - 返信

    Exactly. A short cable that has to be attached like the iPhone 5S means a time-robbing assembly step that's done in tight situations.

    Making the cable long may cost 10 cents more in materials costs, but if it saves the worker 20 seconds of time, it increases manufacturing throughput of that worker and thus makes up for the extra cost.

    • The next logical step is to remove the battery from the iPhone 6 Plus.

    • The battery connector is covered by a metal bracket, which we dispose of using our metal tweezers.

    • Near the bottom of the battery, we locate some sticky pull tabs.

    • Here's what we know about sticky iPhone battery pull tabs: pull it right, and it is super easy; pull it wrong, and it is the end of the world.

    • This adhesive is similar to a 3M Command adhesive, and when you pull the tab correctly it shears the entire strip off.

    Is it Possible to remove the Logic Board right after removing the screen without having to remove the battery or anything else?

    • After saying the magic words, the 43-gram, 4.7" x 1.9" x 0.13" battery mystically lifts off the rear case enclosure.

    • In line with rumors, the battery is rated at 3.82 V and 11.1 Wh of energy, for a total of 2915 mAh—nearly double the capacity of the 1560 mAh unit in the iPhone 5s, and slightly larger than the 2800 mAh burner in the Galaxy S5.

    • Between the larger battery and improvements in power efficiency, Apple touts a talk time of up to 24 hours on 3G, and 384 hours of standby time.

    • The battery found in the Plus is larger than the standard iPhone 6's 6.91 Wh, 1810 mAh battery—which explains the longer life, despite the much larger screen.

    How much does the battery weigh ? Is the mA density per gram higher than previous generations ?

    Joao Fabio Tavares - 返信

    Correct me if I am wrong - at 3.82 V and 11.1 Wh, isn't the battery more like 2905 mAh?

    • This is new! We have something new! The vibrator assembly is located to the right of the battery, below the logic board.

    • Do you remember Jimmy? Of course you do. Everyone remembers Jimmy. With the help of Jimmy, we pry open the vibrator assembly.

    • Thanks Jimmy! Inside we find a delicate array of copper coils. They create alternating magnetic fields that shake a permanent magnet mass, which rides on a couple of springs.

    What kinds of vibrator? Looks different from the conventional. What are the dimensions of the vibrator?

    Louis Jeong - 返信

    i think its new apple made and we will see some similar in the apple watch (taptic engine)

    The vibrator isn't the common motor/counterweight type. It seems like a linear see-saw motor, using the magnets themselves as the moving masses.

    • The rear-facing camera is easily dispatched with a pair of tweezers.

    • The back of the iSight camera is labeled DNL432 70566F MKLAB.

    • Just like the iPhone 5s, the 6 Plus features an 8 MP (with 1.5µ pixels) ƒ/2.2 aperture rear-facing camera. The 6 Plus brings two new additions to the table: optical image stabilization, and "Focus Pixel" phase-detection autofocus.

    • Phase-detection autofocus has been around for awhile in DSLRs, but is relatively new to smartphones. However, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus aren't the first to feature it — the Samsung Galaxy S5 had it first.

    Step 17:


    Constant readings from the gyroscope and the M8 motion coprocessor give the iPhone 6 Plus detailed data on the movements of your shaky human hands, allowing it to compensate by rapidly moving the lens assembly. Result: sharper, clearer photos, even in low-light environments.


    I am still puzzled by the fact that both models have the M8 and MP67B chips. So, why do you say that OIS is only in the 6+ model?

    • Apple loves to focus on their cameras, touting the iPhone as the world's most popular camera in their Keynote. So what's behind the lens? Let's take a peek...

    • Using a plastic opening tool and some steady fingers, we remove the camera housing.

    • While it may not look like much here, the updates found in the iPhone 6 Plus's camera (along with the increased storage) have piqued the interest of amateur and indie filmmakers. We just hope this camera is ready for its closeup...

    • A deeper look at the inside of the rear-facing camera reveals just what we expect: a small lens.

    • Beneath the lens we see the camera's sensor.

    • The key feature differentiating this camera from that of the standard iPhone 6 is optical image stabilization—a technology we've seen before. The lens element on the left is nested into a tiny metal cage, nudged to and fro by the electromagnetic coils surrounding the sensor on the right.

    • Constant readings from the gyroscope and the M8 motion coprocessor give the iPhone 6 Plus detailed data on the movements of your shaky human hands, allowing it to compensate by rapidly moving the lens assembly. Result: sharper, clearer photos, even in low-light environments.

    • It's about time we remove the logic board, secured tightly to the rear case enclosure by a few screws.

    • But before we finish, we're reminded to spudger away an antenna connector from the back of the logic board.

    • The iPhone 6 Plus's solitary speaker comes out next.

    • The modularity of the speaker design is appreciated, even if its markings are inscrutable. The manufacturing origins of this speaker remain shrouded in secrecy, for now.

    On the lower-left corner of the front of the speaker (second image, can't tell if front or back, guessing front), you can see what looks like a QR code and a serial number, but that's just out of focus enough so it's impossible to make out.

    • We have slain the giant. The iPhone 6 Plus earned a respectable seven out of ten, an improvement over the iPhone 5s. Here's why:

    • Continuing the trend from the iPhone 5 series, the display assembly comes out of the phone first, simplifying screen repairs.

    • The battery is straightforward to access. Removing it requires a proprietary pentalobe screwdriver and knowledge of the adhesive removal technique, but is not difficult.

    • The fingerprint sensor cable has been re-routed, fixing a significant repairability issue with the iPhone 5s and making the phone much safer to open. (On the 5s, the cable is easily torn if a user is not careful while opening the phone.)

    • The iPhone 6 Plus still uses proprietary Pentalobe screws on the exterior, requiring a specialty screwdriver to remove.

    • Apple does not share repair information for the iPhone 6 Plus with independent repair shops or consumers.

    5s? Pretty sure this was a 6 plus? =)

    Luke Soules -

    OK, using pentalobe screws is kind of annoying, but you guys sell the driver for $8. Given how smoothly the disassembly went it doesn't seem fair to give a red dot (and maybe a drop from 8 to 7) for the requirement of an $8 part when repairing an $800 device.

If this has 1GB of RAM, it's going to be bricked like iPhone 3G, iPhone 4 with 3GS specs and 4x pixels can't run iOS7, like iPhone 4S can't handle iOS8, like iPad 1's 256MB of RAM, like iPad 3 with 4x pixels on iPad 2 specs. iPhone 5 will run iOS11 fine with 1GB and iPhone 6 Plus will lag with less available memory.

You guys used a 54-bit toolkit to repair a 64-bit phone? That's not enough power! You need an upgrade! :-D

zeromeus - 返信

YES! You need at least 128 bits.

Ari Porad -

iPhone 6 4.7 inch model teardown too? Or only Plus for now? Even thought it's the same internals on the board it's a different design after that.

Alec - 返信

We're doing the 6 Plus first. Fret not, the iPhone 6 isn't getting off the hook. :)

Jeff Suovanen -

RAM is 1G according to the part no. F8164A3PM-GD-F (8 stands for 8Gb=1GB)

Benson - 返信

16 stands for 16Gb=2GB

iphone6splus -

'8' stands for 8Gb=1GB (for 2GB SDRAM, the part no. will be 'A')

"64" stands for 64-bit data width (for 32-bit SDRAM, the part no. will be "32")

The datasheet of Elpida SDRAM can be found here: http://www.micron.com/-/media/documents/...

Benson -

F8164A3PM had 0 results. You should've said EDF8164A3PM. Thanks for the link!

iphone6splus -

Where do you see that in this article?

fish -

It's on the A8 chip. Step 15, image 2.

iphone6splus -

Ah, unfortunate. This is my first iphone, !&&* my last android I bought a bit over two years ago had double the ram of this. Oh well, so it goes

fish -

The part no. of SDRAM (F8164A3PM-GD-F) can be found on the right of Apple A8 SOC.

According to the datasheet, F is the product family (Mobile LPDDR3 SDRAM); A is the power supply interface (1.8V and 1.2V); 3 is the revision; PM is the package code.

This SDRAM should be a customized product with customized package (the SDRAM in Apple A7 SOC is F8164A1PD while the standard part no. is F8164A1MA).

Benson -

Benson, you made it on MacRumors, congrats. http://www.macrumors.com/2014/09/18/ipho...

They know all we care about is the RAM. But its been largely already confirmed to be 1 gig, probably 99% confirmed.

fish - 返信

Thanks for doing this!!!

TechRx - 返信

Will they open the A8 SoC to check suppliers???

DeandreCole - 返信

ram is 1gb, been confirmed by many, here's one http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.p...

INVENSENSE OIS in the rear camera?

steve - 返信

Is the speaker louder than the iPhone 5s?

Alex Ortiz - 返信

Optical image stabilization by Invensense?!?

nann - 返信

Is the tear down complete? Who won the gyro/accelerometer? Invensense?

steve - 返信

InvenSense did indeed supply the gyro/accelerometer.

Geoff Wacker -

Does anyone know where you can buy that camera assembly?

Jason McMinn - 返信

What about compass and the advertised barometer?

Pavel - 返信

Take look at the position of the pressure sensor:


Joe Ortaniak -

So what's inside the Murata wi-fi module? Based on the marking, it looks pretty similar from IP5s's wi-fi module (with Broadcom's chipset). Can you please confirm? Thanks.

Chris - 返信

can you check to see if the camera ring is magnetic in anyway ?? there was a patent filed back in jan 2014 for a similar magnetic ring by apple. and the ring is what ether keeps the camera steady or what holds on different lenses. i think this is maybe why the camera protrudes.

misterkrad - 返信

dt40 please elaborate on this "making fat stacks". You have my attention...

Jonathan Bell - 返信

Any snapshot of the internals so I can use it as my wallpaper when I get the phone? Thanks.

WL Wong - 返信

Could you identify display manufacturer?

Osman Zengin - 返信

Where is the NFC antenna? How small it is to put into iphone?

Jay - 返信

It involves the entire top frame, looks pretty complex.

I would say MP576 from zoom of photo

Anthony -

I'm amazed at how people do not understand RAM usage in a modern OS. Android still suffers from outdated methods, so it needs more RAM. iOS and WP do not need more RAM. More RAM would provide zero benefit.

scottwilkins - 返信

Tell that to me next time your safari tabs reload after you load 3 simultaneously.

Joey Geraci -

Be reasonable Scott. If he was bright enough to understand that, he wouldn't have bought Android in the first place.

henry3dogg -

Android can do more at once, its not an outdated method, its flexibility. iOS and WP are simpler, which suits their userbase..

chrisM -

He's right. Java requires an absurd amount of RAM since it is an interpreted language, meaning that your phone has to recompile an application every few seconds! But iPhone runs on C++ which is super conservative with ram and in all honesty, all iPhone apps only need at max 312mb of ram while Android uses the whole lot.

Joshua Sandoval -

My A7 can handle over 20 tabs at once and never lag- Apple for the win :)

Gigabit87898 -

Any idea what the layer count of the circuit board is?

Steve - 返信

So is this USB 3.0 capable?

Fee Knix - 返信

The USB 3 extension, USB Type-C will attempt to bring USB 3 up to the level of the Lightning connector.

henry3dogg -

Step 17:


Constant readings from the gyroscope and the M8 motion coprocessor give the iPhone 6 Plus detailed data on the movements of your shaky human hands, allowing it to compensate by rapidly moving the lens assembly. Result: sharper, clearer photos, even in low-light environments.


I am still puzzled by the fact that both models have the M8 and MP67B chips. So, why do you say that OIS is only in the 6+ model?

DoubleBagel - 返信

The best part about the iPhone 6 plus is it's size. I think Apple are really out there satisfying two variants of customers - those who prefer large screens and those who are comfortable with the smaller screens. Also, I kinda found this awesome site that is already giving them away in Dubai before everyone else. You guys should check em' out - http://www.alshop.com/apple-iphone-6

Akhil Arun Kumar - 返信

Can you do an itemised list of all the components so we know how much it costs to manufacture botth iPhone 6 & plus.

teradil - 返信

Wait.. There is no strengthening frame in this thing, they are relying on the aluminium back for strength? Is that why there are reports of so many bent and damaged phones? Thats just bad design.

chrisM - 返信

@ifixit: what's the thickness of the rear case enclosure?

Homer - 返信

Why are people so caught up on the RAM? It's like assuming that a V6 engine is going to be better than a turbo charged 4-cylinder solely because it has more cylinders. It's all about what you can do with it. Yeah, the iPhone 6 only has 1GB of RAM but with Apple's know-how it's like getting the speed & performance of a V8 but with the gas mileage of a 4-cylinder engine. It's win-win. It's great that your phone has 4 or more GB of RAM but that doesn't stop my 1GB phone from blowing your battery covers off in the Geek Bench 1/4 mile.

johanna palisoc - 返信

Apple's website seems to suggest the various flavours of iPhone 6 Plus have support from 3 up to 6 separate mobile standards (A1522 vs. A1524 vs. CDMA vs. GSM flavours). From the chips you saw in the teardown, do you think the various support indicates hardware variations for each model? Or do you think the hardware is the same for all models, and the flavours are a result of the regional firmware installed?

Nico - 返信

Anyway to tell the clock speed difference between iPhone 6 and 6 plus ..bcoz 6 plus has such more pixels to deal with...so I think speed should be different

Sahil - 返信

is that the same touch screen controller from Texas Instruments they are using since the first iPhone ever???

Question - My logic board needs to be replaced on my Iphone 6+. This is going to sound really stupid, but. I have a 5C, could I switch the logic board with the 5C and possibly have the 5C run the 6+ display? If not, that's cool it's a long shot completely.

Is anyone familiar with the " field test" mode which displays received signal strength in dBm? If so I'm trying to determine which module in the assembly performs this function.

Can you put the insides from a iPhone 6 into a 6 plus?

Did anyone answer your question? I have been extremely curious about that because I have both phones. I've been looking everywhere but not official answer

No, you can’t. The components may be similar-looking, but they are not compatible.
