Vidéo d'introduction

  1. Remplacement du bouton home avec nappe de l'iPhone 6 Plus, Vis Pentalobe: étape 1, image 1 de 1
    • Avant de démonter votre iPhone, déchargez la batterie en dessous de 25%. Une batterie lithium ion chargée peut s'enflammer et/ou exploser si elle est percée accidentellement.

    • Éteignez votre iPhone avant de commencer la réparation.

    • Retirez les deux vis Pentalobe de 3,6 mm situées près du connecteur Lightning.

    I prefer to remove the SIM card as the very first step since it's safer to do so while the phone is fully assembled.

    I stripped one of the two screws - at a dead stop.

    Before you even start: get the iOpener or hairdryer out. You’ll need it

    GPZ - Réponse

    If a lightning connector won’t provide a charge or needs to be wiggled carefully to provide a charge, power off the device, then try using precision tweezers to scrape the innermost wall of the lightning jack in a pinching motion to check for lint buildup. Pocket lint or other debris can accumulate inside the jack, compacting each time a cable is inserted. This can prevent a lightning cable from seating fully. Clearing the lint may restore functionality without replacing the part.

    A few hints:

    * heating up the phone works great. I used a heating pad that you put in the microwave to heat sports injuries.

    * also, I made a sheet to help you keep track of the screws as you remove them. Print out the page, then place double sided tape below each color-coded listing of screws, and stick the screws to the tape as you disassemble. This helps prevent losing the screws and keeps track of what screws are what for easier reassembly.

    Paul Faulstich - Réponse

    Additional hints, for anyone who needs them:

    * stick the screws to the tape in the same positions as they are shown in the guide. This will make it easier to identify them during reassembly.

    * if the screws get mixed together, the ‘mm’ (millimetre, millimeter) measurements given in the guide can be used to identify them. Compare the lengths of the threaded shafts to each other to determine which screw is which.

    • Les deux prochaines étapes vous montrent comment utiliser l'iSclack, une pince spécialement conçue pour ouvrir votre iPhone 6 Plus en toute sécurité, et que nous recommandons à tous ceux qui effectuent souvent de réparations. Si vous n'utilisez pas d'iSclack, autez deux étapes.

    • Si la jauge de profondeur en plastique est attachée au milieu de l'iSclack, retirez-la, elle n'est pas nécessaire pour les iPhone de grande taille tel que l'iPhone 6 Plus.

    • Serrez les poignées pour ouvrir les mâchoires avec les ventouses.

    • Placez la partie inférieure de votre iPhone entre les deux ventouses.

    • Positionnez la ventouse supérieure contre la vitre près du bouton home.

    • Ouvrez les poignées pour fermer les ventouses. Centrez et exercez une pression sur les ventouses.

    • Si votre écran ou coque arrière est brisé, le recouvrir avec une couche de ruban adhésif transparent peut aider les ventouses à adhérer. L'iSlack comprend également deux morceaux de ruban adhésif à cet effet.

    • Tenez bien votre iPhone et desserrez les poignées de l'iSclack pour séparer les ventouses et enlever la vitre du boîtier arrière.

    • Le iSclack est conçu pour ouvrir votre iPhone en toute sécurité, c'est à dire, sans risquer d'endommager les nappes de l'écran.

    • Décollez les deux ventouses de votre iPhone.

    It's very difficult if you want to remove a cracked screen. The suction cup and Islack won't work. Does anybody know a better way?

    Herbert - Réponse

    I use Scotch Tape, shipping tape. Put a couple of layers over the crack screen. That seals it so you can use the suction cup to remove the front of phone.

    Michael Wallace -

    I used the plastic pry took and the spudger to open it up. I place the pry tool dead center below the home button and was able to put some pressure around the seam and the top popped up enough for me to get the spudger in there to hold it open and then work my way around with the plastic pry tool.

    I know it's tough with cracked glass. You just need enough to get in a plstic pry tool or guitar pick. Then you can pry it apart. Just be patient, I cannot stress that enough; the electronics are very, very small and fragile.

  3. Remplacement du bouton home avec nappe de l'iPhone 6 Plus, Écran: étape 4, image 1 de 1
    • Si vous n'avez pas d'iSlack, utilisez une ventouse pour soulever l'écran :

    • Posez une ventouse sur la vitre juste au dessus du bouton home et appuyez.

    • Assurez-vous que la ventouse est bien accrochée à la vitre.

    • Si votre écran est très fissuré, le recouvrir d'une couche d'adhésif transparent peut permettre à la ventouse d'adhérer. Autre solution, un adhésif très résistant peut être utilisé à la place de la ventouse. Si tout échoue, vous pouvez coller la ventouse sur l'écran cassé.

    Avec la ventouse, l’ouverture est brutale, tout s’est déclipsé d’un seul coup. Faire attention.

    • Tout en tenant l'iPhone, tirez sur la ventouse pour séparer légèrement l'écran du boîtier arrière.

    • Prenez votre temps et tirez de façon ferme et continue. L'écran tient beaucoup mieux que la plupart des composants.

    • Utilisez un outil en plastique (plastic opening tool) pour pousser le boîtier vers le bas tout en tirant sur la ventouse vers le haut.

    • Il y a plusieurs clips qui attachent l'écran au boîtier, il vous faudra utiliser et la ventouse et l'outil en plastique ( plastic opening tool) pour libérer l'écran.

    Be extra careful here. If you don’t take your time, your front panel may jerk back on you, causing you to overextend and break the front camera/mic flex cable; happened to me. Slowly peel back the front panel, opening it no more than 90º.

    Thomas - Réponse

    watch out for the left side of the phone the adhesive bunches up around the inner clips, i didn’t realize it and the upper left of my screen cracked pretty bad. But this guide is awesome follow every direction to the letter

    Aaron Fitzpatrick - Réponse

    Note: this comment is written for the iPhone 6 Plus, but may also apply to other models of iPhone.


    The clips in the rear case attach to small slotted shapes under the edges of the display assembly, and these attachment points alternate from one side to the other. Moving from bottom to top, gently pulling the rear case away at these points will help to separate the two halves without using too much force.


    Ensure that the plastic clips along the top edge of the front panel (shown in step 8) are fitted properly inside the rear case, then gently press the display assembly into the rear case at these points, moving from top to bottom. There may be a small click sound as the clips in the rear case engage with the slots on the display assembly, and the rear case should fit flush with the edges of the display assembly.

    Friendly Advice - Réponse

    This was challenging. For me, the suction cup could only create a tiny bit of motion and at first, no actual gap at all. You might have to pull the suction cup away from the base a few times just to loosen things up a tiny bit. Eventually, I got my fingernail in, and then after a few minutes got the plastic tool in.

    Also, use the plastic tool to gently pry along the sides of the phone once there’s light there. I was afraid of using too much leverage and breaking the screen as per the other comments, but starting at the bottom and then going around the sides slowly worked for me.

    There is an adhesive strip all along the edge between the top and bottom of the phone. Is that just adhesive or is it wire of some sort?

    Larry Ingerling - Réponse

    @lingerling The adhesive strip was introduced on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus (one model year later than what’s shown on this page). Guides specific to each model can be found here—be sure to use the correct one for your particular phone. And yes, just adhesive, no wires. ;)

    • Soulevez la partie de l'écran avec le bouton home tout en utilisant la partie supérieure du téléphone pour faire charnière.

    • Ouvrez l'écran à un angle d'environ 90 ° et penchez-le contre quelque chose pour le garder calé pendant que vous travaillez sur le téléphone.

    • Ajoutez une bande adhésive pour maintenir l'écran bien en place pendant que vous travaillez. Cela évite une pression excessive sur les câbles de l'écran.

    • À la limite, vous pouvez utiliser une boisson en canette fermée pour maintenir l'écran.

    Be careful If we leave the screen connected and set it to 90 degrees, the speaker / sensor flex may break. With an opening of 60 degrees it is convenient to completely disconnect the screen. The headset's flex is short, and if we put it at 90º, it can break. Guiding me from the images of iFixit, I have broken two cables.


    Cuidado. Si dejamos la pantalla conectada y lo ponemos a 90 grados, el flex del altavoz/sensor puede romperse. Con una abertura de 60 grados es conveniente desconectar enteramente la pantalla. El flex del auricular es corto, y si lo ponemos en 90º , se puede romper. Guiándome de las imágenes de iFixit, se me han roto dos cables.

    txaukos - Réponse

    At 60º the display will block access to all the screws and the phone would be practically unserviceable, so I’m having trouble making sense of this comment. The cables on a factory original display are pretty tough and designed with enough slack that a 90º angle is no problem. Same with any decent aftermarket display.

    Jeff Suovanen - Réponse

    If you look at the enlarged image, you can see how the flex cable from the camera / speaker is in tension. This is my opinion. Sorry for my bad English

    Si usted se fija en la imagen ampliada, puede ver cómo el flex cable de la cámara/altavoz está en tensión. Esta es mi opinión.

    Perdón por mi mal inglés

    txaukos - Réponse

    your English isn’t the issue, it’s the proposed 60 degree opening space that doesn’t allow for the removal of the screws of the mounting plate where the connectors connect to the main pcb…

    if can make a recommendation here; it helps if the can is full and not refrigerated, the weight helps in keeping the phone where it should stay without adding additional tension to the ‘flex’ ribbon cable. it’s called flex for a reason people, if your breaking these the phones already been overheated too much, the cables become brittle and should also be replaced. i replaced my battery without disconnecting the screen, at 90 degrees with a rubber band around an empty beer can. pierced the orig. battery and caused sparks. albeit, i wasn’t in a hurry and it took me a good 30+ minutes, removal of the battery and stickers is by far the most challenging, especially when NOT disconnecting the screen…

    it’s not a race, take your time. move slowly but precisely with forethought and persistent force…

    • Lors du remontage, alignez les clips correctement sous le bord supérieur du boîtier. Puis insérez l'écran jusqu'à ce que son bord supérieur soit au même niveau que celui du boîtier.

    I would recommend protecting the screen once the display is free and the suction cup has been removed. This will help avoid any possibility of accidental scratching of the display crystal while the remaining steps are being performed. I used an inexpensive screen protector then removed it after reassembling and testing are complete.

    I _love_ the color coding of screws. I know this is a little OCD, but it would be incredibly useful if there were an 8.5 X 11 you could print with indicated homes for where to drop items from each step of disassembly. That is, in the box for step 9, little colored circles for where to place each screw type. As long as you don't jostle the paper, it would make it a lot easier to know exactly where you are in reassembly.

    Actually you don’t need to do steps 12 to 18 if you attach the display panel to the iPhone box as shown in step 7 and handle your iPhone with care during the replacement.

    Just be really careful remembering which screw is which. I drew a quick sketch of the bracket, then put the screws in the relevant places. There’s no way I would have been able to figure them out otherwise - my eyes can’t see the difference between a 1.2 and 1.5mm screw!

    Paul Johnson - Réponse

    The most fiddly part of the job.

    Much easier if you put the screwdriver head on the screw and then insert it into the opening. The slight magnetism will hold it in place. Don’t fully tighten a screw until all the screws are in place. Much like installing lug nuts on a car.

    I question whether Steps 12-18 (separating the display from the case) is actually necessary? The battery can be removed/replaced with the display connected (but standing upright, as displayed in Step 7.

    Leaving the display attached obviates the most difficult steps (re-connecting the various control ribbons — 3/4 of ‘em!

    I followed this manual completely and the repair was successful. But if I had this to do over, I’d leave the display connected.

    Dana Smith - Réponse

    I skipped the steps 12-18 as well and thank goodness I did so I won’t have to worry about issues with any of the cables.

    my panel is different from what is pictured anyway ‘cause I have one screw in the middle like what Herbert said on the first comment.

    Maria Filamor-Robinson - Réponse

    I realized too late just how handy the magnetic mat is that they have in their shop. So I organized the screws with a piece of clear packing tape. On the smooth side, use a sharpie to draw spacious circles with “R” “O” and “Y” inside each circle to represent the color coded screws and then use the sticky side to keep the screws in place. I found that using the tweezers to take them off the screwdriver helps you stick them head first to the tape better.

    The piece of advice about power cycling the phone by disconnecting and reconnecting the battery proved crucial to the success of my repair (camera and lens replacement). At first when charging the phone after closing it, I got a dark, blank screen with an intermittent buzzing noise. After re-opening the phone and making sure all cables had been properly reconnected, I ignored the advice to power cycle the phone. Still all I got was a dark, blank screen (and intermittent buzzing if charging t). Then I opened it a third time (leaving the screen connected and attached at a 90 degree angle) and I only disconnected and reconnected the battery. Voila!

It had a bow on the middle that I had to flatten out before pressing the connector on with finger first on one edge and then on the other. I had white tire tracks on the screen and no touch screen until I connected it correctly. The front has to rest in just the right place on the back while attaching this thing so the cables aren’t strained the front doesn’t fall down. Small fingers would be a plus at this step.

    Reseating these connectors on reassembly is definitely the most difficult part of this repair. It took me several attempts before the lowermost connector would seat properly and I did accidentally bend it slightly in the process. Fortunately I was able to get it straight again and get it to click in. The other three went in fine though and no lasting damage seems to have been done.

    Another thing - These cables can become overlapped in the wrong way and make you think they are in a different order than they should be. Eg. it’s easy to mix up the ones from step 15 and 17. You can actually unravel the cables and re-layer them on top of each other in any order, so remember this! They look like they’re one solid mass but they’re not.

    I never removed the last digitizer connctor. I removed the first three connectors, left the screen propped at 90 deg tied to a box and removed the battery, there is minimal movement. In fact when I reattached the connectors, only the first and maybe second connector feels taut, so it’s necessary to only remove the first connector if you can be gentle with it. Less headache. And my guess why so many people had issues is that micro dust gets into the connectors and cause connection loss. You be surprised how little dust can cause havoc.

    And forgot one thing, keep a can of air duster woth you to remove as must dust as you can see. A camera air blower will also do nice.

    I haven’t removed my screen in past battery replacements, I found it easier. However, this time I followed the instructions because my old battery was very stuck, and I needed the screen gone to get the battery out…

    When I replaced the screen, at first it wouldn’t even boot/start up. (Yes, I inserted my own testing step, as someone here suggested, before final reassembly).

    The screen would just show a fuzzy image, and the board that all the cables attach to would heat up, then it would turn itself off. I tried reconnecting them carefully 3 times, and even made sure to get a little “click”, all to no avail.

    The final try, I used my fingernail to really press down on the back side of the digitizer cable. I heard more clicking, though I thought I might be tearing the cable too. With nothing left to lose, I continued across the back, and heard several more clicking/tearing sounds.

    This worked, and it booted after that. It still had white lines, but those faded away overnight.

    About the digitizer connector: its flat cable is so short that the when I attempted to seat the next connector, its flat cable pressed on the digitizer cable, which can pull on the connector and dislodge it. That happened several times for me before success.

    Be really careful with the step after this. Do not commence until you have read all the comments. You need to get a good hold of the plastic strips preferably before they double over on themselves. You have to avoid puncturing the battery at all costs. Slowness and caution here will save you a lot of long term pain.

    Yes it is absolutely replaceable. You need to remember it is a encrypted security feature, so you'll need the apple ID or password to regain control again if replaced. That's the whole point to secure your data.

    Hi Brent, I have a iPhone 6 plus with a shattered screen to repair and the home button is gone. You have said that you've been able to replace the home buttons successfully. I was wondering how you got past the error 53 problem when restoring it? Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.

    arcadian212 -

    Error 53 was resolved by Apple with an iOS update, so fortunately this is no longer an issue! As others have stated, it's perfectly possible to replace the home button, but you will lose fingerprint sensor functionality (the original sensor is paired to your iPhone's logic board at the factory, and only Apple can pair a new one).

    Jeff Suovanen -

    Why does that make it pointless? The guide is geared towards screen replacement, with the intent of using the original home button and a new screen. It clearly states this. What about this guide is pointless? It's actually very helpful.

    abyss478 - Réponse

    Warning: The iphone 6 will brick after a restore if the home button is replaced. I agree with the other commenters that it is not a replaceable part because of this issue. If you try to restore the iPhone 6 after replacing the home button it will get stuck in recovery mode and give error 53 when a restore is attempted. I learned this the hard way! Please be careful and don't restore your phone if you do this repair.

    The little square rubber gaskets that cloak the mounting holes (little square nubs at the bottom of the picture in Step 19) for the Pentalobe Screws in Step 1 above had a tendency to fall off the screen. Further, if replacing the screen, these should also accompany the other items transferred to the new screen. This is just a small oversight I have seen from this repair guide, otherwise, smooth as silk.

    The connector seemed a bit raised after re-assembling, I noticed after pressing the bracket down on in preparation for screwing in. I don’t know if it’s normal for it to have a slightly raised feeling but it was noticeable. Enough to make me wonder if it’s too much pressure on it once it’s screwed together.

    JOAN E. VERGARA - Réponse

    Hi Joan! If I am understanding your question correctly, disabling the fingerprint passcode prior to repair WILL NOT result in Touch ID working after the repair. You should look at Jeff Suovanen's comment at the bottom, as he explains the two ways to keep Touch ID working. In order to keep Touch ID working, you will need to find a logic board that is paired with the home button and replace both of those components.

    When reassembling this display connector, you must fold the new connector down into and against the plastic base in order to line up the sockets. The original connector cable is adhered to the screen, the replacement sticks straight out.

    The little rubber gasket seems to be a moisture seal. It isn’t glued down but over time it seals itself to the display. Pushing the spudger around underneath simply breaks the bond between the two surfaces. Be sure to do it carefully so as not to tear it.

    After removing the home button, remove the two black rubber bumpers from the ‘Pentalobe Screw’ mount brackets and transfer them to the new screen, this helps secure the home button in place and screw tension.

My iphone was screen broken and i change it with a original complete iphone screen, the home button works fine but the touch id dont work. I change the home button to the one that i have in the broken screen and still the touch id dont work. What can i do to fix the touch id?

replace the flex cable which connects touch ID cable with mother board

engradnanriaz -

Hi guys, I replaced my front assembly and I'm having the opposite issue with my home button: The TouchID is working fine, but the home button being pressed is not working. I've tried re-seating the cable a few times. I'm normally pretty good at these kinds of things but I'm assuming I may have somehow crimped one of the ribbon cables.

My question: If something is damaged, is it more likely the cable on the back of the heat-sink that is damaged, or the home button ribbon cable itself? I realize that I will lose TouchID if its the latter, I just want to know what my options are. I'm having trouble searching the issue because everyone else has the issue where the TouchID doesn't work (for obvious reasons) but mine is working just fine.

Thanks for any advice.

Hi everyone, I replaced the home button on my cell phone iphone 6+, the home button functionality works just fine, however the biometrics fingerprint reader does not work anymore. Any suggestions? Thank you

J Jesus Perez - Réponse

Unfortunately, as stated in the introduction to this guide, that outcome is normal. For security reasons, the fingerprint sensor is coded to your phone's logic board at the factory. If you replace the button, you'll lose the fingerprint sensor function. Only Apple has the capability to pair new Touch ID sensors to existing phones. As far as I know, there are only two ways around this: (1) replace both your home button and logic board with a factory-paired home button and logic board harvested from another phone, or (2) pay Apple for an out-of-warranty repair (meaning you ship your phone to them and they give you a refurb in return).

Hi, I replaced my home button and the new one works but I can’t close the phone back up. The screen wont close properly towards the bottom near the home button. I’ve reseated the button a few times but I still can’t get it to properly close. The only thing missing is the rubber gasket around the screw holes which popped out and got lost when I replaced the button. The home button gasket is still there and fits fine. I’m not sure how to fix this.

I had a bad cracked screen so I replaced the screen and the home button, both are new. I’m having two issues at the moment:

- home button doesn’t work

- phone does not close

The screen itself works, I can swipe left/right but the home button does not work. I’ve carefully attached the ribbon cable (I think it only goes in one direction, where the ribbon cable slightly folds over and connects to the ribbon from the screen), is it possible I received a bad button? Also, I can’t close the phone now. I’ve made sure everything is securely fasten and cleaned the excess old phone gasket around the edges but still can’t close it, everything is flush except at the bottom where the two screws are next to the charging port.

Any ideas/suggestions on either of my issues would be greatly appreciated, my son is dying without his phone :(

Thanks in advance.
