Introducción

Utiliza esta guía para devolverle la vida a tu iPhone 6s Plus con una batería nueva. Si tu batería está hinchada, toma las precauciones apropiadas.

Este guía te enseña a desmontar el panel frontal con la intención de prevenir daños a los cables de la pantalla. Si te sientes seguro/a sujetando la pantalla con cuidado mientras sacas la batería del iPhone, puedes saltar este paso e ir directamente a los pasos para quitar la batería.

Para un rendimiento óptimo, luego de completar esta guía, calibra tu batería nueva: Cárgala hasta 100% y síguela cargándola durante al menos dos horas más. Luego, usa tu iPhone hasta que se acabe la batería y se apague. Finalmente, cárgala de forma ininterrumpida hasta 100%.

También puedes usar esta guía para reemplazar el soporte de conector de batería.

Resumen del Video

  1. Antes de desarmar su iPhone, descarga la batería por debajo del 25%. Una batería de litio-ion cargada puede incendiarse y / o explotar si se pincha accidentalmente.
    • Antes de desarmar su iPhone, descarga la batería por debajo del 25%. Una batería de litio-ion cargada puede incendiarse y / o explotar si se pincha accidentalmente.

    • Apaga su iPhone antes de comenzar el desensamblaje.

    • Retira los dos tornillos Pentalobe de 3.4 mm a ambos lados del puerto Lightning.

    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 - Contestar

    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.

    Jeff Suovanen -

    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 ?

    grazie

    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 - Contestar

    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 - Contestar

    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 - Contestar

    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.

    So my screen shattered completely and the screen first had colored lines on tge while right side then it went out completely. If i get an lcd and digitizer replacement I'd that oing to fix it

    shellietheleo - Contestar

    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.

  2. Al abrir la pantalla en el 6s Plus, se separa una delgada tira de adhesivo alrededor del perímetro de la pantalla. Si prefieres reemplazar el adhesivo, ten listo un conjunto de nuevas tiras adhesivas antes de continuar. Es posible completar la reparación sin reemplazar el adhesivo, y probablemente no notarás ninguna diferencia en la funcionalidad.

    My cracked screen prevented the suction cup from sealing. SOLUTION: With a piece of clear packing tape across the screen, the suction cup will seal and pull.

    Jim Cowles - Contestar

    I broke my iphone screen in the first step!

    Pierre Bertram - Contestar

    This screen removal step got more wrestley than I anticipated. The adhesive is quite strong. I used a flat-ended razor tool that I have to begin the prying - I don’t know how I would have got it started without this.

    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.

    John Architzel - Contestar

    A really high quality packing tape over the entire screen will usually be enough to use the suction cup on a shattered screen.

    djwooten -

    I used a suction cup on each side to provide counter traction. I braced the iphone between my knees and pulled apart while my helper inserted the spudger

    jkanne - Contestar

    This was by FAR the most difficult part of this whole thing. I confess the spudger was not cutting it so I used a butter knife to get into the small opening first, then used the spudger to go around the screen.

    Julie Sanchez - Contestar

    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.

    bartmistrot - Contestar

    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. Resorted to @j2arch’s tip and inserted a utility knife vertically into the seam between the display and phone body. Was able to lever the glass enough to get the spudger in there.

    Jason Augustyn - Contestar

    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.

    Brent - Contestar

    If you try to use the spunger near the home button and try to pry it can crack your screen. This happened to me.

    Jeffrey - Contestar

    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 - Contestar

    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.

    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.

    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 :-)

    Julie Sanchez - Contestar

    Use the bit labeled “PH000”.

    Joe Teichert - Contestar

    PH000 bit just wants to free-spin in the 2.3 mm screw. no bite in the head at all. had no difficulty removing the 2.9 mm screw with the same Phillips. had to abandon battery replacement effort.

    Benjamin Stalcup - Contestar

    For this part, neither PH000 or Y000 worked. Technically, it’ll set you back 31$ because you will need the PH00 screwdriver for this part, and the part where you need to open the screen. They have ph00 screwdrivers in every hardware store and even ifixit.com. just know that they put the wrong screwheads for you

    Jack Daniel - Contestar

    Do not lose track of which hole these screws go into. They MUST be put back into the correct hole that they came out of. If not, you will get the dreaded “long screw damage” on the mainboard, and that will be the end of the show.

    Just remember where these screws go, and it will be fine.

    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. Ours went in but guess didn’t go far enough so we had to take the screen off and push it harder until we heard the “click” then it worked fine.

    I just changed my battery and also left the screen attached. I was lucky enough to get all 3 adhesive battery strips out clean so I didn’t have a struggle with the battery coming out. If I was going to need to get rough with it I was going to take the screen off at that point.

    To keep track of screws, draw a quick outline of the display cable bracket/cover, with five dots where screws should be. Drop the screws on the corresponding dot. Helps if you use magnet pad.

    Better yet, print out the pictures from the iFixit website, and use clear tape (“Scotch tape”) to TAPE the screws onto the place in the picture where they belong.

    Which screwdriver from the kit do I use for which screw?

    Shiva Sharma - Contestar

    I made a mistake and unscrewed the screw just north north west of the one circled in yellow. Of course I lost the screw. Can anyone give me any guidance about this? what does the wire connected to it do? What is the size of the screw, in case I have to replace it?

    P.S. This is another reason to consider the possibility of NOT removing the screen just to replace the battery: removing the screen presents a additional possible headache, especially for people like me with bad eyesight who probably shouldn’t be doing this in the first place.

    Tom - Contestar

    I didn’t think this was necessary, bit I see it relieves stress on the front-facing camera and sensor cable connector; I did not disconnect the display connector nor remove the display screen.

    Lou Fazio - Contestar

    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)

    Richard Perl - Contestar

    Thanks for this tip! I am having a really hard time removing this plate because one of the screw heads are stripped. So I’ll try removing the battery adhesive strips first to see if I can get the battery out without removing the screen.

    “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.

    Jeffrey Robinos - Contestar

    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.

    Norbert Andreas Richartz - Contestar

    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.

    Bryan Province - Contestar

    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.

    alejandro rueda - Contestar

    @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.

    Jeff Suovanen -

    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.

    These instructions worked great for me. Thank you!

    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 - Contestar

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

    STEPHAN HERBY -

    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 - Contestar

    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 - Contestar

    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!!

  23. Reúne los extremos de las tres tiras adhesivas en tu mano.
    • Reúne los extremos de las tres tiras adhesivas en tu mano.

    • Intenta mantener las tiras planas y sin arrugas durante este procedimiento; las tiras arrugadas se pegarán juntas y se romperán en lugar de tirar limpiamente.

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

    Joe Teichert - Contestar

    I found it easier to pull out one strip at a time. There really isn’t need to pull all three at the same time.

    gordojenkins - Contestar

    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.

    Lou Fazio - Contestar

    On an older Iphone 6s+ it is easier to pull each adhesive separate.

    • Manten presionada la batería con una mano mientras tira, o las tiras elásticas pueden arrojar la batería del teléfono una vez que están separados de la caja trasera

    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.

    Dustin DeShaney - Contestar

    I found it better to pull one strip at a time

    John Parker - Contestar

    Do them separately or they will probably rip like mine did :(

    Christopher Eccles - Contestar

    Pulling them separately is a good idea especially if it’s your first time. My middle strip tore at the beginning and I had to pry the battery up and then I was able to remove the remaining strip of adhesive. While prying the old battery in an upward angle it did start to bend I believe I achieved a 35 degree angle

    Gregory - Contestar

    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 - Contestar

    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 - Contestar

    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.

    Garrett McWilliams - Contestar

    If your battery is bend, DO NOT TRY TO RE-FLATTEN it again cause my battery were BURNT. luckily i’ve drain the battery beforehand till <28% but next time i’ll drain it until <5% to reduce the energy if it catch fire, i believe if the battery is in full charge it will explode. 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.

    osbert intanu - Contestar

    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.

  25. Si eliminaste con éxito las tres tiras adhesivas, continúa con el siguiente paso. De lo contrario, deberás sacar la batería de la caja trasera. Prepara un iOpener y aplíquelo a la parte posterior de la caja trasera, directamente sobre la batería. Alternativamente, puedes aplicar calor usando una pistola de calor o un secador de pelo.

    • Prepara un iOpener y aplíquelo a la parte posterior de la caja trasera, directamente sobre la batería. Alternativamente, puedes aplicar calor usando una pistola de calor o un secador de pelo.

    • Después de aproximadamente un minuto, da vuelta el teléfono y usa una tarjeta de plástico para romper el adhesivo restante detrás de la batería.

    • No insertes tu tarjeta en el área entre el botón para bajar el volumen (-) y el borde superior de la batería, o puedes dañar el cable de control de volumen que se encuentra debajo.

    • No hagas palanca contra la placa lógica o puedes dañar el teléfono.

    • Mantén la tarjeta lo más plana posible para evitar doblar la batería, lo que puede dañarla y hacer que libere sustancias químicas peligrosas o que se incendie. No uses herramientas afiladas para hacer palanca en la batería.

    • Alternativamente, se puede usar un hilo dental para separar la batería de la caja trasera. Una alternativa más fuerte al hilo dental es una cuerda de guitarra desenrollada, como una cuerda 0.009 E de un conjunto de 12 cuerdas.

    • Pasa el hilo dental o la cuerda detrás de las esquinas superiores de la batería, junte los extremos, envuélvelos alrededor de un paño doblado y tira uniformemente.

    I didn’t have an iOpener on hand (although plan on purchasing one now). I remembered that I had some handwarmers lying around, and they worked well to apply enough heat to help release the adhesive strips easily.

    Jami - Contestar

    My battery was completely loose in place - I just picked it out.

    Lou Fazio - Contestar

    My 6S plus battery was REALLY hard to get out. The 3 adhesive strips broke immediately. I used 80 lb fishing line, a glove, and repeated hair dryer use. The battery was a little bent when it finally came out.

    Michael Polczynski - Contestar

    We had a similar experience - the adhesive strips were hard to grasp and they snapped straight away. We had a neck massage cushion to heat in the microwave and laid the iPhone on this while using the Spudger to poke at the adhesive - took over and hour to get out.

    James W - Contestar

    If the three adhesive strips (or two, on a replacement battery) were successfully removed, and the battery is loose, what’s the next step???

    prreitz - Contestar

  26. Retira la batería.
    • Retira la batería.

    • Si tu batería de repuesto venía colocada en una funda de plástico, retira la funda antes de instalarla simplemente tirando de ella para separarla del cable plano.

    • Si tu batería nueva no tiene adhesivo,s consulta esta guía para reemplazar las tiras adhesivas de la batería.

    • Realiza un restablecimiento completo después del reensamblaje. Esto puede evitar varios problemas y simplificar la resolución de problemas.

    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.

    joetalaga - Contestar

    Thanks for the tip, joetalaga!

    Joe Teichert - Contestar

    FYI, for anyone in a pinch if the new battery didn’t come with adhesive, you can use Command strips to secure the battery to the housing. Works like a charm!

    tnix43 - Contestar

    I would recommend using a little grease on the tip of the screwdrivers to stick the screws to the driver (even thought they’re magnetic). Commonly, dielectric tune-up grease from automotive stores - it did WONDERS in not fumbling or losing screws.

    I also recommend a test-fit of the battery before applying the adhesive strips to be familiar with the needed battery location i.e. where the connector needs to be placed.

    Note: the connectors DO snap in place.

Most common on IPhone 6s/6 repair jobs is this battery replacement. Great tutorial!

Raymond Amansec - Contestar

so few comments on this one?!

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

sarah - Contestar

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.

Jeff Suovanen -

by far the easiest repair I've done. only 3 screws! really dont think the cables need to be disconneted. i just used a shoe lace to gently hold up the screen. sticky strips came out fine. happy. thanks.

sarah - Contestar

Where can one buy the adhesive gasket for the case

Sandeep singh - Contestar

I know almost a year later to reply, but if you buy the battery kit, the adhesive gasket for the display comes with it—along with a pentalobe screw liberation kit.

joetalaga -

The iFixit store has them

william.r.crowley -

how deep is that sand lol , you can get everything here if they don’t have it google it or you don’t need it

luciferbritsun696 -

Wow, now I’m feeling a bit dumb and a lot frustrated. I bought the kit, replaced the battery, put everything back together, and it works! But I couldn’t figure out the purpose of the clear blue sheet included with the kit.

Now I know, but I’m not taking the phone apart again to install it.

What wasn’t this covered in the video or in the step-by-step instructions?

Darryl Howard -

Is the battery OEM apple one

Sandeep singh - Contestar

The battery from the iFixit battery kit is not OEM, but it is tested and guaranteed with a one-year warranty.

joetalaga -

dawit ican✔ - Contestar

Where can I buy de adhesive that is around the display? Can I use B7000 glue?

Ezequiel Braunstein - Contestar

We sell the adhesive in our store! iPhone 6s Plus Display Assembly Adhesive

Evan Noronha -

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..

Ned Bedinger - Contestar

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.

Ned Bedinger - Contestar

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. That's why it blew up, so be careful guys, because I absolutely didn't expect that. There was lots of smoke and I burned myself a little bit.

I thought my phone will die after that, but I connected new battery and everything works fine.

Roman Visente - Contestar

may i change 6s plus battery with 6 plus?

Charles Cho - Contestar

Wow! That was awesome. It's amazing how easy things can be when they are designed to be replaced! One note though, when I was draining my new battery, at below 10% it would not play sound. I could not play music, or hear phone calls, I could however be heard. After having opened my phone so recently I was worried a connection had come loose or been missed entirely. 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? I didn't "enter power save" not knowingly at least.

Michael Cornforth - Contestar

Very straight forward instructions. Easy to follow; video helped as well. Took me about 1 hour to complete. Phone is charging now. Looking forward to see how the new battery performs. Thanks very much for this site and to all contributors! I like fixing things myself. 11/19/17.

I don’t get why you need to take the screen off really.

AmMahabir - Contestar

This guide is make from an iPhone 6s total tear down

Mandy -

yes, you are right. Just take care and not damage display cables etc. while fighting with the adhesive stripes

alfasw33 -

I've done this twice and each time I can't get the old adhesive to come off cleanly. I had to use an iopener each time. Just be careful and not bend your battery. It will get hot and smoke if you bend it a lot. Other than that, real easy to replace.

chuongho - Contestar

Just got done with my first iPhone battery replacement. Took me about an hour. I think the hardest part for me was getting the screen popped open enough to get the spudger in there. I ended up using an iOpener to warm the adhesive a little and it was a little easier to open enough to get the spudger in there. I also used the plastic scalpel tool from the Pro TechToolkit to cut the adhesive loose before shoving the spudger in there.

joetalaga - Contestar

Hi,

I followed this tuto and I successfully changed the battery on my iPhone 6 S Plus without any difficulty. But, after then change, touchId feature does not work anymore. Main button is working fine, only touchId feature is faulty: I have a message saying that touchId feature will not be available on the phone.

I wonder if the fact that I disconnected the touchId connector (part of the 3 screen connectors), and reconnected it at the end, may act as the screen itself was changed. Some messages on forums tell that in this case, the iPhone refuses to reactivate touchId feature.

If someone can help it would be great.

Thxs,

Jean-Claude Ribiere - Contestar

This was my first ever DIY replacement from iFixit. This guide was absolutely on spot and it was so easy for me to replace the battery. Thanks.

Anubhav - Contestar

Don’t be as stupid as me and follow the guide at the step 23. It’s really difficult to pull all the tabs together, better try it to pull out a single one and then go on with the next one.

Everything else worked like the guide said.

Elias Bürgisser - Contestar

The same here as Jean-Claude Ribiere experienced. My iPhone 6s plus refuses to activate touch-id after successful battery replacement. Main button works fine. I have found no help on any forums for this issue and would like post a warning for this repair guide.

Kalle Punsvik - Contestar

Was the battery the only component you replaced? if so, it’s likely you damaged one of the cables during the process.

These phones are very delicate and it is easy to cause unseen damage if you’re not careful.

Jonathan Reynolds -

In general the instructions were clear. Only thing missing is the gasket instructions as it is included in the kit but not in the instructions.

Won Hong - Contestar

Yes, and gasket instructions are needed. I tried to install the gasket and could not get it to seat properly and gave up. You only get one try and then it is ruined.

richlove -

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.

richlove - Contestar

Same thing happened to me. display now dead. had it done at the local gadget /phone repair store but they couldn’t fix it.

Were you able to fix yours?

Philip Storey -

Anybody have a solution to the front facing camera assembly not working? Changed out my buddies battery and now the front camera and ear speaker don't work.

Wade - Contestar

My iPhone 6s+ was stuck in a restart loop. I tried EVERYTHING! Did you try… YES! I tried it. The Apple store near me didn’t have an appointment available for 6 days. I recently had them replace the battery since they admitted to screwing everyone’s phone up and it had been randomly restarting at all different times. This morning I tried to do an iTunes factory reset and still just rebooted when done. I followed these steps up to #20. Then I reassembled (losing the 30mm screw for the logic board) and fired it up. She was a little groggy at first but runs great now!

tseantownsend - Contestar

Mine doesn’t switch on at all - will they still help me with my iPhone even if I tried to fix it myself?

Because I know they like to do things like that haha

Klaud Kveda -

I done this with mine but could not get strips out so just forced the battery out - without disconnecting LCD and then the phone would not switch on, so I gave up with it.

Since then I tried to do it again and just checked the connections with the battery and seems to of turned on so I was happy and put it on charge only for it to turn off again after around 5 mins and it wont switch back on now.

Let me know if there is anything I could do to fix this.

Klaud Kveda - Contestar

I could not believe it. I DID. This guide was helpful including some comments. Thank you!

Alberto Vega - Contestar

I accidentally used the tweezer in step 14 after removing the battery connector bracket and I saw some sparks. Did it fry my batter connector?

Kim Leabres - Contestar

Not sure why I had to take the front off completely [iPhone 6s plus]. Also, replacing the adhesive strips was a disaster as mine looked nothing like what was in the photos. Scotch double sided to the rescue. Hope it doesn’t melt or something [fist bump myself explosion emoji]

Tom Lynham - Contestar

this is ridiculous, just use your brain and make a phone w an ejectable battery… a duh.

HEMP IS NOT POT - Contestar

battery addhensive is too sticky. would be nice to add iopener in the toolkit. i tried to force the battery out without heat it. battery caught fire. luckily the phone still works after clean the mess. i would suggest to get an iopener if you want to replace battery.

yuan wei - Contestar

Hello! Is to possible to change the battery while the screen is broken? I dont want to change the screen just the battery! :)

Otto linden - Contestar

@otto_linden Totally possible, although getting a broken screen off can be troublesome. If it’s badly broken, the stress of removing it can make it worse, so it may go back together “more broken” than when you started. All other things being equal, I’d probably suggest waiting until you can do both at once. But, your call! Good luck.

Jeff Suovanen -

just did my new battery tonight and found the front display connectors really hard to remove.

Put everything back but now my ear speaker isnt working.

Tried hard reset and removing all tabs and replacing but it’s still not working :(

Everything else works fine. So disappointed will now have to go to apple for a more expensive repair than a simple battery :(

John Sherrit - Contestar

Just wanted to add that when I added the new battery the phone got exteremely hot so I have removed the “new” battery and put the old one back in and temps are normal again,

Good to see there is a one year warranty as this battery is going back.

mfigeroux - Contestar

I don’t know about everyone else, but this fix was a pain process. The screws are so small you need an electron scanning microscope to see them. Then the magnetized screwdriver heads are great, but then when putting screws back in, it is really tough.

Tyler Martin - Contestar

Both cameras stopped working as well

Tyler Martin -

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.

Daniel Lafargue -

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

yany - Contestar

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!

Timothy Lee Russell - Contestar

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?

Carlos B - Contestar

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?

Jay Cummings - Contestar

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.

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.
