  1. iPhone 6 Antenna Flex Cable Replacement, Pentalobe Screws: paso 1, imagen 1 de 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 3.6 mm-long P2 Pentalobe screws next to the Lightning connector.

    • The next two steps demonstrate the Anti-Clamp, a tool we designed to make the opening procedure easier. If you aren't using the Anti-Clamp, skip down two steps for an alternate method.

    • For complete instructions on how to use the Anti-Clamp, check out this guide.

    • Pull the blue handle towards the hinge to disengage opening mode.

    • Position the suction cups just above the home button on the screen—one on the front, and one on the back.

    • Push down on the cups to apply suction to the desired area.

    • If you find that the surface of your device is too slippery for the Anti-Clamp to hold onto, you can use packing tape to create a grippier surface.

    • Push the blue handle away from the hinge to engage opening mode.

    • Turn the handle clockwise until you see the cups start to stretch.

    • Make sure the suction cups remain aligned to each other. If they begin to slip out of alignment, loosen the suction cups slightly and realign the arms.

    • Wait one minute to give the adhesive a chance to release and for the bottom of the screen to open.

    • If the Anti-Clamp doesn't create a sufficient gap, apply more heat to the area and rotate the handle clockwise half a turn.

    • Don't crank more than a half a turn at a time, and wait one minute between turns. Let the Anti-Clamp and time do the work for you.

    • Skip the next three steps.

  4. iPhone 6 Antenna Flex Cable Replacement, Manual Opening Procedure: paso 4, imagen 1 de 1
    • If you don't have an iSclack, use a single suction cup to lift the front panel:

    • Press a suction cup onto the screen, just above the home button.

    • Be sure the cup is pressed securely onto the screen to get a tight seal.

    • 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.

  5. iPhone 6 Antenna Flex Cable Replacement: paso 5, imagen 1 de 1
    • While holding the iPhone down with one hand, pull up on the suction cup to slightly separate the front panel assembly from the rear case.

    • Take your time and apply firm, constant force. The display assembly is a much tighter fit than most devices.

    • Using a plastic opening tool, begin to gently pry the rear case down, away from the display assembly, while continuing to pull up with the suction cup.

    • There are several clips holding the front panel assembly to the rear case, so you may need to use a combination of the suction cup and plastic opening tool to free the front panel assembly.

    • Open the iPhone by swinging the home button end of the front panel assembly away from the rear case, using the top of the phone as a hinge.

    • Several clips along the top edge of the front panel form a partial hinge.

    • During reassembly, align the clips just below the top edge of the rear case. Then, slide the front panel upward until its top edge is flush with that of the rear case.

    • 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.

    • In a pinch, an unopened canned beverage works well for this.

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

    • Remove the following Phillips screws from the battery connector bracket:

    • One 2.2 mm screw

    • One 3.2 mm screw

    • During your repair, keep track of each screw and make sure it goes back exactly where it came from to avoid damaging your phone.

Great Guide, GPS Antenna and WIFI antenna replaced!!! a little sweat... but i did it

Miguel Cartagenova - Contestar

Hi,

Where are the GPS antenna and the GPS chip please ?

Thks

ccTEST -

This part and replacement guide saved my iPhone. I thought the phone was just getting old and on its way out since the bluetooth and gps were incredibly awful. Bluetooth only worked within direct line of sight within one foot, and gps had stopped working almost completely. It took some time to perform this repair, but I following the guide carefully and patiently fixed the problem completely. This part and guide worked perfectly. Thank you very much ifixit!

EXCELLENT Instructions! 1:15 first time. Worked great, saved me the cost of a new phone. The "genius bar" said it couldn't be fixed, talk about self serving "you will have to buy a new phone!"

KEY GUIDANCE

0) Be careful when taking the front off, I snapped off one of two pieces near the lightening connector!

1) Print out the instructions (yes its a lot of pages, but trust me)

2) As you take off screws and pieces tape them to the instructions where they go

3) YOU will thank me later.

If I had not done this I think it would have been twice as long, and likely made mistakes and perhaps damaged something with the wrong length screw. I kept like screws together under one piece of tape, next to each color indicator.
