Replace iPhone 6s battery

Replace iPhone 6s battery

Open the iPhone

Open the iPhone

  1. Remove the two pentalobe screws on the bottom edge of the phone. They are on either side of the lightning port.
  2. Using the metal spudger, slowly and carefully separate the screen of the iPhonefrom the body. Start on the bottom edge by the Lightning port and proceed slowly.
  3. Continue using the metal spudger or use playing cards or guitar picks to separate the adhesive from the sides and top. Don’t push the metal spudger too far into the device.
  4. The bottom side of the screen can now be pulled away from the body. The flex cable connecting the screen to the battery will still be attached near the top, so exercise caution.

Disconnect the cables

  1. Remove the two Phillips screws securing the battery connector EMI shield.
  2. After the shield is off, use a plastic spudger to disconnect the battery from the logic board.
  3. Remove the following four Phillips screws securing the display cable EMI shield and set the shield aside.
  4. Use a plastic spudger to disconnect the front camera flex cable, digitizer cable, LCD cable and home button flex cable by prying it straight up from its socket on the logic board.
  5. Remove the LCD assembly of the iPhone 6s from the body.

Replace the battery

There are two strips of white adhesive underneath the battery. The best way to take out the battery is to roll and pull the strips out using tweezers.

  1. Slide your tweezer tip under the black adhesive at the bottom of the battery as shown.
  2. Push your tweezer tip about halfway across the bottom of the battery.
  3. Roll your tweezers, pulling the white adhesive out from under the battery. At the same time, pull the tweezers away from the phone.
  4. There is one more strip of adhesive under the battery on the 6s. Use the same roll and pull technique to remove the other strip.
  5. If you snap a piece of adhesive, you will have to use a plastic spudger to gently pry the battery off the base. If you pry from the logic board side, do not use the logic board for leverage as you may damage it.
  6. Remove the battery from the body of the phone.
  7. Using adhesive tape, affix the replacement battery into place with gentle pressure.

Put the components back together

  1. Reconnect the front-facing camera flex, lcd cable, ditizer cable and home button flex cable to the logic board.
  2. Screw in the display cable EMI shield using four Philips head screws.
  3. Reconnect the battery connector. Use your plastic spudger to put it in place then press gently down with your finger to connect, distributing the pressure evenly to not damage the flex connector.
  4. Screw in the battery connector EMI shield with two Phillips head screws. The larger screw goes in closest to the battery.
  5. Fold the screen over the body. Insert the top of the screen into the frame first. Proceed carefully, it will click back into place but don’t press too hard on the glass.
  6. Screw in the two pentalobe screws that go on either side of the lightning port.

    I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy I came across this in my hunt for something regarding this.|
