1. iPhone 6s Plus Battery Replacement, Pentalobe Screws: 步骤 1 中的图像 1,1
    • Before disassembling your iPhone, discharge the battery below 25%. A charged lithium-ion battery can catch fire and/or explode if accidentally punctured.

    • Power off your iPhone before beginning disassembly.

    • Remove the two 3.4 mm Pentalobe screws on either side of the Lightning port.

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

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

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

    Ganqian Zhu - 回复

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

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

    Non è necessaria la cosa o è consigliabile ?


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

    Is not the thing necessary or is it advisable?

    thank you

    Daniele - 回复

    You’ve probably received your answer by now but for future enquirers, it does help the process of taking the screen off if heat is applied to the screen. If you have a hair Dryer use that on a low setting to heat the edges of the screen until it’s almost too hot to touch then slip very thin metal spudger around the edge to cut the adhesive. The carefully lift the screen with the help of the spudger and continue with your repair

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

    integritybuilders - 回复

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

    Jeff Suovanen -

    So I need to empty the battery to zero percent?

    johnpatrickanat - 回复

    Below 25%, exactly as stated in the instructions. There’s no benefit to draining it further than that, and in fact you’ll slightly shorten the service life of the battery by draining it all the way to zero. Follow the instructions exactly as written—if you go off-script, you’re a lot more likely to break something.

    I would initially recommend a well-lit, comfortable area and placing the screws on a white piece of paper with the screw sizes written down (apparently there are magnetic mats, also). Also, I found placing the phone on a paper towel is good so that if a screw is dropped, it will lessen the likelihood of bouncing away.

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

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

    This is important. I’ve serviced a lot of iphones/ipads for my family as a hobby in the past.

    The adhesive was so tight, I cracked the screen trying to pull it/pry it off.

    I highly suggest heating at least the bottom edge enough to soften the adhesive

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

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

    • If your display is badly cracked, covering it with a layer of clear packing tape may allow the suction cup to adhere. Alternatively, very strong tape may be used instead of the suction cup. If all else fails, you can superglue the suction cup to the broken screen.

    • Pull up on the suction cup with firm, constant pressure to create a slight gap between the front panel and rear case.

    • Pulling too hard may damage the display assembly. Apply just enough pressure to create a small gap between the display assembly and the rear case.

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

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

    I also had a badly cracked lower screen - that glass was actually threatening to pull off the phone in chunks during this step, even with packing tape.

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

    Same thing happened to me. This should be a big warning in these steps. If you have a small to moderate crack in you screen, but you weren’t planning on replacing the screen at the same time as another repair inside, there’s a risk of damaging the screen further and making it inoperable.

    I found it easiest to use two suction cups. One on the front as directed, and a second one on the back. Give the spudger to your assistant, and have them slip it in place while you pull the display from the case.

    gordojenkins - 回复

    I gave up with the suction cup as it wasn't working for me with a cracked screen. Having heated the bottom of the phone with a hair dryer with a high heat for a good minute or so, I used a safety scraper (essentially a razor blade in a holder) along the bottom of the phone to separate the screen from the body of the phone. I used the scraper vertically between the bottom of the screen and the phone body and levered it sufficiently so that I could fit the spudger between the screen and the phone body. My experience when I first used the spudger around the frame was that the cracks in the screen caused the screen glass to separate from the frame, so I had to re-do it and ensure that the screen frame was separated from the phone body.

    • The safest place to pry from is the notch in the front panel above the headphone jack.

    • While still maintaining pressure on the suction cup, insert the flat tip of a spudger into the gap, directly above the headphone jack.

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

    When warmed, the suction cup was useless. Using the tip of a knife blade, was able to get it separated enough to insert spudger.

    hutland - 回复

    For me this was the most time consuming task. I used a hair dryer for heating. I found a very tight adhesive. For a moment I thought of abandoning my efforts and take the assembly to a professional repairman. But as they say, patience is a virtue.

    After fiddling for about 20 minutes, I achieved a barely noticable opening. So I decided to change the strategy. Instead of applying heat all over the base, I preceeded with small steps with heat concentrated near the opening. I applied intense heat only for about 15 to 20 seconds and immediately working with spudger. It took about an hour to completely open the case. It worked.

    • Gently grasp the display assembly and lift it up to open the phone, using the clips at the top of the front panel as a hinge.

    • Open the display to about a 90º angle, and lean it against something to keep it propped up while you're working on the phone.

    • Don't open the display more than 90º—it is still connected to the top of the phone by the display, digitizer, and front camera cables which can tear easily.

    • Add a rubber band to keep the display securely in place while you work. This prevents undue strain on the display cables.

    • In a pinch, you can use an unopened canned beverage to support the display.

    if the display cables are damaged how can you tell ?

    Smiley McSmilebot - 回复

    In theory, I like the idea of propping up the screen with a rubber band and box/soda can like this, but after ripping the FaceTime camera cable twice, I realize that this method puts too much stress on the cable because it places the screen so far back. Even in this photo, you can see that the cable is taut. I’d recommend just holding the screen with your free hand to put the least amount of stress on that cable as possible.

    • Remove two Phillips screws securing the battery connector bracket to the logic board, of the following lengths:

    • One 2.9 mm screw

    • One 2.3 mm screw

    • Throughout this guide, keep careful track of your screws so that each one goes back where it came from during reassembly. Installing a screw in the wrong place can cause permanent damage.

    FYI - I used some blue painters tape wrapped around a piece of cardboard to hold the screws and brackets in place, in order, so they did not get lost. Some of those screws are MICROSCOPIC so be careful!

    I also suggest having very good lighting, even a camping headlight for hands-free well lit work space. You will thank me later :-)

    When putting the new battery in, make sure to line up the plug and not to the top of the battery… our battery was smaller so the plug would NOT have lined up if we used the top of the battery. ALSO, the plug was NOT 90 degrees so we had to finagle the plug. Also, make sure there is a clear CLICK when you plug in the connector or it may not work.

    This step of separating the two parts of the phone deserves careful consideration. In my case, I had propped up the display assembly with a box and rubber bands. However, only 2 of the battery adhesive strips came off easily. The effort to remove the battery with the display assembly attached was not a good move on my part. I jarred the ear speaker cable and after reassembly I had no camera or working ear speaker. Taking off these 5 screws and removing the three cables is not difficult. My suggestion: is you have ANY trouble removing the 3 battery adhesive strips, STOP, separate the two components, and then continue with the battery removal. Don’t struggle removing the battery with the display assembly attached. (I replaced the ear speaker cable, and all is working now)

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

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

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

    This part was a very frustrating experience for me.  I thought that my replacement screen was just poor quality, as it worked when it wanted to work.  Pressing home/power repeatedly sometimes brought it back, charging to 100% also brought it back.    The actual problem was that it is very easy to get some of the gasket material caught in the connector, which I couldn’t see until I used my jeweler's loupe.  I used 91% alcohol to carefully clean all of this off until all pins were shiny, and it took about 6 tries to get it right.  However, the screen’s been running well for 2 days now.  I already bought another screen replacement which I have for a spare as it was 100% not the problem.

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

    what exactly is broken now?

    alejandro rueda - 回复

    @mynameisoli Honestly this just sounds like a defective screen to me, but it’s hard to say for sure. Look closely at the connector at the end of the ribbon cable and check it for damage. If it’s slightly bent/curved, all the pins won’t make good contact in the socket. You can try bending it back so it lays flat, but you have to be very careful not to damage the connector or contaminate the pins with skin oils, so it’s tricky—and it may be harder to return as “defective” if you mess up the connector. So try this at your own risk. Apart from that, I would just return it and try a different display. Good luck!

    @kitabel The iPhone 6s case isn’t waterproof, so I don’t think adhesive around the display is contributing anything other than stability. The 6s series does have some water resistance, but it’s mostly internal and not something Apple advertises.

    If you have a replacement adhesive for the display, you may need to install it before reconnecting cables to the components. If the adhesive wraps all the way around the display, it will be impossible to install it once the display is reconnected.

    • Peel back the tips of the three battery adhesive strips along the bottom edge of the battery.

    OK - second most challenging part of the swap. TAKE YOUR TIME! It is hard to pull the strips out without getting them caught on the metal edge parts inside which can tear them, but do them one at a time, pull slow but steady, and as it stretches, grab the tape closer down near the body of the phone. You will not believe how far these things can stretch!

    I was successful with getting 2/3 of them out but the one closest to the guts - the first one I tried to hurry - broke off. I got the other two out then needed to use a credit card to get up & under to loosen the battery. Another video I saw showed slightly warming up the back of the phone using a hair dryer set on low which would loosen the adhesive, but I did not do that. I was able to get the battery up far enough to use the tweezers to grab the adhesive and then pull it out.

    Julie Sanchez - 回复

    Slightly warming up the back of the phone using a iOpener, just before pull the strips, is definitely a good solution for me :)


    I agree, pulling one at a time worked for me. I think pulling all at the same time may be faster but pulling one at a time may be safer because you can react to each single strip as it tugs and releases and then tugs again. Just pull slowly and when it tugs (stops releasing) just maintain a slight tension until it releases again. At one point, one started to tear so I eased up and slowly continued with what was left and it eventually released enough so I could continue with the whole strip. Good practice for patience! XD

    kevin -

    I’m absolutely stuck here. I don’t see the adhesive strips at the bottom of the battery. I only see the flat cable that wraps around the bottom of the battery, which is now separated. I don’t think it was supposed to separate like that.

    David Warshowsky - 回复

    Because of the Taptic engine assembly, it is almost impossible to pull the adhesives at the optimal, less-than-60-degrees; even when I removed the two-piece assembly, two of the adhesives — middle and the one adjacent to the battery connector — on my wife’s 4-y/o 6s Plus broke.

    I would definitely recommend either iFixIt’s “Opening Picks” or “Plastic Cards”; an old driver license (CA) or drive license would work. Just be aware that the edge of the plastic will show some wear and some sharp edges. I was able to loosen about a quarter of the batter from the bottom left, enough to lift (and slightly deform) the old battery to be able to use the tweezers to grab the broken end and pull along the long-edge of the old battery to remove.

    Finally, do a check by positioning the battery, with the adhesive film still in place, and make sure the battery connector is lined up with the port on the iPhone: use the spudger to gently crease, if needed, the battery connector “flexible arm” so that the connector lies flat.

    Family Juinio - 回复

    Not mentioned in main steps, it may be helpful to apply some heat to back of phone (put face down on a table and use a hair dryer. Be sure not to heat too much, just enough so it is still touchable and can be held. My center strip tore and had to slowly work from the side and was finally able to tweezer in to grab last tape strip to remove. Caution as battery punctures could lead to a fire!!

    Edward Bannan - 回复

    Never could get a finger hold. Why, Because there were two, not three strips and the tabs were way too small to finger-grab. Tweezer-pulling always tore the tabs and adhesive before I could get enough to finger-grab. However, even with a adhesive-shred-tweezer-hold I could wind until there was enough that I could pull with the tweezers.

    • Gather the ends of all three adhesive strips in your hand.

    • Try to keep the strips flat and unwrinkled during this procedure; wrinkled strips will stick together and break instead of pulling out cleanly.

    • If any of the adhesive strips broke off underneath the battery and could not be retrieved, apply a few drops of high concentration (over 90%) isopropyl alcohol under the edge of the battery in the area of the broken adhesive strip(s).

    • Wait about one minute for the alcohol solution to weaken the adhesive. Use the flat end of a spudger to gently lift the battery.

    • Don't try to forcefully lever the battery out. If needed, apply a few more drops of alcohol to further weaken the adhesive. Never deform or puncture the battery with your pry tool.

    • Do not insert the spudger in the area between the volume down (-) button and the top edge of the battery, or you may damage the volume control cable lying underneath. Do not pry against the logic board or you may damage the phone.

    When I did this, the 5 inch strip stretched to about 3 feet.

    Starting from the left, pull the strip to the center strip with tweezers, then punch together with left fingers. Next, pull the right strip with the tweezers to the two already together. Grab all three with left fingers. It is a little difficult, but just do as common sense tells you.

    • Gently pull the battery adhesive tabs away from the battery, toward the bottom of the iPhone.

    • To avoid tearing the adhesive strip, be careful not to pull against the battery or lower components.

    • Pull steadily, maintaining constant tension on the strips as they slip out from between the battery and the rear case. For best results, pull the strips at a 60º angle or less.

    • The strips will stretch to many times their original length. Continue pulling and re-grab the strips near the battery if necessary.

    • Hold down the battery with one hand as you pull, or the elastic strips may fling the battery from the phone once they're separated from the rear case.

    • If the adhesive breaks off underneath the battery and can't be retrieved, refer to the previous step for instructions on how to unstick the battery. See the next step for additional methods.

    Use a set of curved tweasers to pull each strip clear of the bottom left corner of the battery. Then the strips will pull out alongside the battery and the frame almost effortlessly. Do this for each strip and your battery should almost fall out.

    Pulling them separately is a good idea especially if it’s your first time.

While prying the old battery in an upward angle it did start to bend I believe I achieved a 35 degree angle

    Gregory - 回复

    Definitely agree one at a time - see my comment above for more detail. Also possible to slightly warm the back of the phone first using hair dryer set on low. This loosens the adhesive if for some reason you break a strip off & have to pry the battery out (CAREFULLY)

    Julie Sanchez - 回复

    I used a hair dryer to warm the back of the phone, and I still broke two of the three “taffy stickers”. If I did it again, I would keep the back warm with a hair dryer, and gradually pull one piece straight out at a time at as low an angle as possible. Unfortunately, the small backers came off my perimeter adhesive, so as I pulled the taffy stickers out, it stuck to the perimeter adhesive and messed it up. Perhaps remove the battery before applying the new adhesive around the edge of the phone? Everything was going well for me until this step.

    Joe Teichert - 回复

    Nightmare. All three strips broke. I did get the battery out with a combination of dental floss, a guitar string, and a few cut-down credit cards. But the adhesive is very strong even when warmed, and the outer wrapper of the battery tore during removal. I was afraid of it heating up and sparking, as I have seen other damaged lithium ion batteries do.

Dont try to extinguish the battery since it will not until it all the energy is burnt. Just keep it controlled. And REMEMBER TO DRAIN YOUR BATTERY BEFORE DETACH.

    Pull all three steadily at an angle just above the metal components below the battery. Wrap the strips, in a looping motion, around your finger to take up the slack, similar to winding dental floss - they stretch far, as stated, and circulation in your will be to be cut off - get through it with out too much dilly-dallying.

    Pull the strips really slowly. The glue itself will just flow away with constant force, whereas increasing the force will tear the tape. Once you have got to the force where the tape is slowly peeling away, try to keep that force constant as far as possible.

    All three strips broke off for me (this is my 3rd time replacing the battery), even after using an iOpener to apply heat to the bottom of the device. What works for me best is to use a few drops of 90% isopropyl under the battery. I let it soak for about 10-15 seconds, then with a plastic credit card, slide it under the battery until eventually the strips let go.

  25. iPhone 6s Plus Battery Replacement, Alternative methods to unstick the battery from the case: 步骤 26 中的图像 1,1
    • If you successfully removed all three adhesive strips, move on to the next step. Otherwise, you will need to pry the battery from the rear case.

    • Prepare an iOpener and apply it to the back of the rear case, directly over the battery. Otherwise, you can apply heat using a heat gun or hair dryer.

    • Overheating the iPhone may ignite the battery.

    • Don't try to forcefully lever the battery out. If needed, apply a few more drops of alcohol to further weaken the adhesive. Never deform or puncture the battery with your pry tool.

    • Do not insert the spudger in the area between the volume down (-) button and the top edge of the battery, or you may damage the volume control cable lying underneath. Do not pry against the logic board or you may damage the phone.

    • Alternatively, a piece of dental floss may be used to separate the battery from the rear case. A stronger alternative to dental floss is an unwound guitar string, such as a 0.009 E string from a 12-string set.

    • Thread the floss or string behind the upper battery corners, bring the ends together, wrap them around a folded cloth, and pull evenly.

  26. iPhone 6s Plus Battery Replacement: 步骤 27 中的图像 1,1
    • Remove the battery.

    • If your replacement battery came in a plastic sleeve, remove the sleeve before installation by pulling it away from the the ribbon cable.

    • If there's any alcohol solution remaining in the phone, carefully wipe it off or allow it to air dry before installing your new battery.

    • Before you adhere the replacement battery, temporarily reconnect the battery connector to the logic board socket. This ensures that the battery is properly aligned in its recess.

    • Adhere the battery, disconnect it, and continue reassembling your device.

    • If your new battery doesn’t have adhesive preinstalled, refer to this guide to replace the adhesive strips.

    • Perform a hard reset after reassembly. This can prevent several issues and simplify troubleshooting.

    I recommend putting the battery in place BEFORE putting the new adhesive strips to make sure you know for sure that the battery connector lines up with the socket. I ended up with a battery wire that was just a bit too long and I mounted the battery way at top of the pocket (big mistake). Even after moving the battery down, the connector wire was still a little too long, so I had to connect the battery and shove the wire between the battery and logic board as much as I could. Checking the battery beforehand could save some adhesive strips from going to waste.

so few comments on this one?!

has any/many done this without the adhesive strips.. and was it ok?

sarah - 回复

If you mean the battery adhesive strips, sure—you can put a piece of double-sided tape down the back of the battery, and it probably won't move anywhere. There's not much room for the battery to move anyway. Use the adhesive strips if you want to do it right—but, if you're in a bind and you just need the phone working, you can skip the strips. And you can always open the phone back up and add the adhesive strips later.

If you mean the adhesive gasket around the display, the answer is pretty much the same—It's better to have it, but it doesn't hurt anything to put the phone back together without it.

Reassembly of the display to the chassis was a terrible ordeal until I realized that the front-facing camera connector and sensor cable connector cables had changed position in the 3-cable stack. This is possible--try it yourself:

Follow the two disconnected cables back to the display.

Swap them by tucking the smaller connector cable UNDER the bigger connector cable. You can do it because the angle that they exit the display lets them lie either way, on top of the other or under it.

You'll know immediately when trying to re-attach the connectors because the big connector needs to be the second (middle) one. Otherwise the cables can be hooked up with a lot of fiddle but they won't fold to fit under the cover..

The battery adhesive -- my case used to get hot until i changed the batt. Two-sided tape (like carpet tape) might not let heat shed betweenor or through the strips. Using two-side non-specifc tape in wide stripsfrom a roll? It makes me wonder about heat-managing properties of official batt tape.

The old battery blew up on me while replacing, because the battery adhesive strips tore. I didn't have a plastic card to unstick the battery, so I had to bend it.

Once charged to 100% everything behaved as expected. I am not sure if that is normal or not. I could totally understand restricting power use at those levels, but does it?

There should be large red bold letters in this procedure telling you to make sure the battery is not connected when re-connecting the display cables.

I blew the backlight circuit on the motherboard.

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

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

Expensive mistake.

The problem that lures you into this trap is that you need to position the battery to align with the battery connector when re-installing the battery.

To make sure it is aligned properly, the natural thing to do is to plug in the battery connector.

But then you can forget that the battery is connected when you re-attach the display cables.

If I were to do this procedure again, I would not even disconnect the display at all. It is not necessary when replacing the battery.

I had similar issues on other iPhone models and it was always caused by the associated cable not plugged in correctly. Either that or the said cable might have been previously damaged because those iPhone cables really are fragile.

CAn you use I6 plus battery with I6s plus phone vise versa?

yany - 回复

I would say, make it clear in the guide at the beginning that it is not necessary to remove the screen assembly (to replace the battery.)

A soup can and two rubber bands with a piece of cloth to protect the screen work splendidly for holding the screen at a 90 degree angle.

Unless you have to do something specifically to the display, I think with those additional miniature screws of different sizes and tiny connectors you’re just increasing your chances of failure if all you’re doing is replacing the battery.

Great guide though, very helpful. Thank you!

I just completed the replacement of the battery in my 6s plus. I took my time which wound being 4 hours of work but I was through and meticulous. Overall a great success. I was going to get a new 11 pro but they failed to put a 5G antenna in this model which was a deal breaker for me so I had to extend the life of my 6s for at least another year. Thank you iFixit for everything.

Not super hard but when I replaced my battery I must have tugged on the 3 cables connecting the display to the back. After installing the new battery and putting it all back together my earpiece speaker and front camera wouldn’t work. I opened it up and all the cables looked fine. No tears no nothing. I ordered a new cable assembly for the earpiece, front camera and when removing the old cable assembly the proximity sensor had detached from the cable and was stuck in the display. Replaced the cable and it works great now. Be very careful with those cables.

Hello can i change the battery and the back camera of my IPhone 6s Forbthe battery and the camera of the iPhone 6s Plus?

After a battery replacement, which went very smoothly, the touch screen doesn’t respond. The battery is fine. The home button is fine. The display is fine. Boot up is fine. But touching or pressing the screen does not register at all. I have repeated the steps to disconnect and reconnect the digitizer cable 6 times. No joy. The connector appears fine, no bending. It clicks into place on one end then the other end.

What should I try next?

Thanks for sharing this. I did need a hair dryer to help to loss the sticky tape that applied to the bottom edge of the screen of iPhone 6s Plus. Only plug using the sucking tool does not always work. Do it with cautious before you break your screen.

One of the screws below the home button on the side of the phone won’t catch.

Sadly after I did the battery installed, Now when I open the camera app the screen is black. I can’t take photos, switch from rear to front camera. When I call someone I can’t hear them in my ear I have to use the speaker phone. I wonder what happen :(

Be very careful when you use a Metallic tweezer to remove the tape trip on the battery .My battery exploded

I had issues in the end while trying to let the display snap in completely into in the frame. On the left side everything was fine, but on the right side I found a small bracket had become loose and blocked the counterpart of the display: one of the small rectangular hooks that should snap in that bracket. I fixed the bracket in the correct position with a micro piece of the old adhesive stripe while mounting the display.

do you have to buy the Battery Connector Bracket does it still work with the old one?

The pold one should work fine

Just did the battery replacement.

It went better than I expected. I did not remove the display cables or disconnect the display - I did tape it into place in an upright position, and was careful. In a previous battery swap (years ago) I did tear my camera cable and had to replace it, not being careful enough. I’m realizing that what’s really needed here would be a 3D-printed jig that would firmly hold the display up at an angle and take all the stress off the cables - with that sort of arrangement I imagine that things would go well.

The OEM battery was so gone that when I destroyed it (bend, fold, mutilate) it didn’t make a peep. Had it been in better shape I would have used more care to avoid a kaboom/flame event. The center adhesive strip didn’t come out (much) which is why I had to lean on it (too impatient to heat that up to remove it.

Since it was stone dead prior, nice to see it come up after - wasn’t sure the bad battery hadn’t taken the phone with it. At any rate, all good!

IFIXIT is a lifesaver. I’m not quite ready to give up my iphone 6S+ just yet. This time I ordered the battery replacement kit. I followed the video, paused where needed and got through it with no problem. Previously I’ve ordered and replaced the rear camera and on my iMac I replaced my hard drive. The videos are clear and concise. I prefer them to the step by step method, however do refer to them as well.

What about Nohon batteries, it is good, or no?

There is some black sticky material on a piece o f blue plastic. I assume that it is new gasketing material to replace what came off when I opened the phone. Unfortunately I have no idea how to apply it, as it doesn’t seem to fit in the open phone either way.

Great little guide! I’ve just had to replace the second battery on my 6S Plus, and because the aftermarket sticky strips that secure the battery to the case where less sticky (not from iFixit), it was possible to skip steps 17-27 (but perhaps not advised) turned into a 5 mins job all in as opposed to nearly 40mins because the original battery sticky strips are a really pain! Regarding the perimeter tape gaskit that seals the screen to the back, it is possible to reuse the original but it is likely to part lifted / broken. So I’d say that dust protection is compromised, that said, I still found the orginal gaskit adequate even after two battery replacements . GearDo via aution site in the UK offered the gasket as a separate item, but I’ll save it for my 3rd battery - haha!

Some key omissions

1. if the battery is stuck, the adhesive strips probably broke. do NOT pry battery from top (the opposite side of the home button). There are components that can be damaged.

2. my replacement batterysaid “first drain old battery to 20% ”., to reduce risk of fire/explosion. If thats right, it should be up front in video.

3. When prepping the new battery adhesive, (probably my error, but easy to do) a little bit of the adhesive remained on the top of the battery (the part facing the display"). The display back has a thin film material, which got stuck to the exposed adhesive. When I took the cover back off to reseat it, this film tore due to being stuck to adhesive.

4. The video says reverse the steps for replacement. Its a bit tricky to align the 3 data cables for reseating. Any tips might be helpful

Probably due to my errors in steps 1 & 3, my iphone no longer powers up, even though I watched the video twice before starting. So be careful !

The procedure is well described with a couple of exceptions:

- the proper steps to use the adhesive kit(for the screen, not the batteries)

- more information about times to charge the replacement batteries.

In my repair, the adhesive kit came without any orientation indications, so after watching a few YT videos, it was managed.

After repair the phone was dead in appearance. In fact the battery was fully depleted and it took several hours to start showing charge.

the iphone 6s plus i got was just showing the apple logo but not turning on so i replaced the battery but it did not work. that really sucks i was hoping so much to get it done but thank you for your help

Replaced the battery in an iPhone 6s. I didn't disconnect the screen, but instead connected it to a bent metal bracket using a rubber band. This meant I needed to cut the adhesive strip to get it behind the screen connector cables.

One adhesive strip holding the battery tore as I pulled it. I was too impatient. Slow is good here. I gently pried the battery Just until I could use tweezers to grip the end of the adhesive strip again. Pulled it out from the side which worked VERY well as a second option.

Did all screw removal and replacement over the pasteboard tray provided. Laid out screws with their cover in the correct placement.

Finally, made sure that I reversed every screw till I heard a click before I started screwing them in. This prevented cross threading.

Good instructions and a fun project if you take your time. Don't forget to roll up your sleeves so you don't brush tiny parts to the floor.
