Tools required for disassembly: iPhone tool kit

Below you can see the sim removal pin and the iphone tool kit required for disassembly, which is available to order from our site. If you are replacing a badly cracked screen, cover it in sticky tape before starting. iPhone 6 disassembly stage 1 First turn your phone off. Now remove the sim tray by pushing your sim removal tool into the hole circled below. If you don't have the sim removal tool, use something like a paperclip. iPhone 6 disassembly stage 2 The sim tray has now been removed. iPhone 6 disassembly stage 3 Next remove the 2 pentalobe screws, circled below. iPhone 6 disassembly stage 4 Now attach a suction cup near the bottom of the screen, as shown below. If your screen is cracked, try and place the suction cup in an area which isn't damaged, but note that removal of the screens needs to start at the bottom end. iPhone 6 disassembly stage 5 Pull the suction cup up and you should lift the screen enough to allow you to get the edge of a plastic tool under the edge of the screen, as pictured below. Lever up both bottom corners of the screen then run your plastic tool along both sides of the screen. iPhone 6 disassembly stage 6 Lift the screen up like below and note the metal shield which covers the cable that connects the battery to the circuit board, indicated below. iPhone 6 disassembly stage 7 Now remove the two screws, circled below, and lift the metal cover away. iPhone 6 disassembly stage 8 The two screws and the metal shield have been removed and you can now access the cable that connects the battery to the circuit board. The cable has a plug and socket (press fit) type connection. Disconnect the cable by carefully levering it up, away from the circuit board. iPhone 6 disassembly stage 9 The cable from the battery has now been disconnected. iPhone 6 disassembly stage 10 Looking at the other end of the phone you'll see a metal cover held in place by 5 screws. Remove these screws and the metal cover (the EMI shield). Make sure the screws go back in the same position they were removed from as the screws are different sizes and can damage the circuit board if replaced in the wrong position. iPhone 6 disassembly stage 11 The EMI shield has now been removed, as shown below. You now have access to four ribbon cables from the screen (only two are visible at first). Each of these cables has a plug and socket like connection, so lever each up, away from the circuit board. With the first two cables disconnected, you have access to the third and fourth cable. Again, these have a plug and socket like connection, so lever up, away from the circuit board. You can then lift the screen free. iPhone 6 disassembly stage 12 Below you can see the screen, separated from the rest of the phone. iPhone 6 disassembly stage 13 Now turn the screen over and remove all the screws you can see. iPhone 6 disassembly stage 14 Now carefully disconnect the cable from the home button. Again, this cable has a plug and socket like connection, so lever up to disconnect. Be very careful not to damage the home button or cable, because although it is inexpensive to replace, the fingerprint recognition feature will not work with a replacement part and you will have a problem if you need to restore the phone. iPhone 6 disassembly stage 15 The cable from the home button has now been disconnected. You now need to remove the large metal plate from the back of the screen. Note that the area circled below will be stuck down with double sided adhesive, so first use heat from a hot air gun or hairdryer to soften the adhesive then lift the metal plate free. iPhone 6 disassembly stage 16 The metal plate has now been removed. iPhone 6 disassembly stage 17 Now return to the home button. To remove the home button, first apply some heat from a hot air gun or hairdryer to soften the adhesive holding the cable, indicated by the arrow, in place. Carefully peel the cable away from the back of the screen. If the cable is firmly stuck, use more heat until it comes away without force. Again, be very careful not to damage this cable. Once the cable is free, push the home button though from the front of the screen. If the part is stuck, apply more heat and carefully push the part free. Do not use force. iPhone 6 disassembly stage 18 The home button is now free. iPhone 6 disassembly stage 19 If your new screen does not come with the earpiece, front facing camera or proximity sensor, then you'll need to remove them from your old screen. First lift the front facing camera, indicated by the arrow below, from right to left. iPhone 6 disassembly stage 20 You now have access to the earpiece, indicated by the arrow below, which can simply be lifted free. To detach the flex ribbon cable for the front facing camera and proximity sensor, first apply some heat with a hot air gun or hair dryer for around 30 seconds, which will soften the adhesive holding it in place. The cable should now come away without force. If the part is stuck firmly, use more heat and a plastic tool to carefully lift the cable free. iPhone 6 disassembly stage 21 The earpiece, front facing camera and proximity sensor are now free. Now simply reattach the parts to your new screen and reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.
