  1. Before disassembling your iPhone, discharge the battery below 25%. A charged lithium-ion battery can catch fire and/or explode if accidentally punctured.
    • 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 P2 Pentalobe screws next to the Lightning connector.

    • The next two steps demonstrate using the iSclack, a great tool for safely opening the iPhone 6 Plus that we recommend for anyone doing more than one repair. If you aren't using the iSclack, skip down two steps.

    • If the plastic depth gauge is attached at the center of the iSclack, remove it now—it's not needed for larger phones like the iPhone 6 Plus.

    • Close the handle on the iSclack, opening the suction cup jaws.

    • Place the bottom of your iPhone in between the suction cups.

    • Position the iSclack's upper suction cup against the display, near the home button.

    • Open the handles to close the jaws of the iSclack. Center the suction cups and press them firmly onto the top and bottom of the iPhone.

  2. Hold onto your iPhone securely and close the handle of the iSclack to separate the suction cups, pulling the front panel up from the rear case. The iSclack is designed to safely open your iPhone enough to separate the pieces, but not enough to damage any of the display cables.

    • The iSclack is designed to safely open your iPhone enough to separate the pieces, but not enough to damage any of the display cables.

    • Peel the two suction cups off your iPhone.

    • Skip the next three steps and continue on to Step 7.

  3. If you don't have an iSclack, use a single suction cup to lift the front panel:
    • 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.

  4. 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.
    • 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 attaching 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.

  5. Pull the plastic nub to release the vacuum seal on the suction cup. Remove the suction cup from the display assembly.
    • Pull the plastic nub to release the vacuum seal on the suction cup.

    • Remove the suction cup from the display assembly.

  6. Pull the home button end of the front panel assembly away from the rear case, using the top of the phone as a hinge. 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. Add a rubber band to keep the display securely in place while you work. This prevents undue strain on the display cables.

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

    • In a pinch, you can use an unopened canned beverage to hold the display.

  7. Several clips along the top edge of the front panel form a partial hinge, allowing the front panel assembly to swing open like a book. 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.

    • Remove the following Phillips screws securing the front panel assembly cable bracket:

    • Three 1.2 mm screws

    • Remove the front panel assembly cable bracket from the logic board.

  13. In the next four steps, take care to pry up only on the cable connectors, and not on their sockets on the logic board. While still supporting the front panel, use a fingernail or the edge of an opening tool to disconnect the front-facing camera and earpiece speaker connector.

    • Make sure the battery is disconnected before you disconnect or reconnect the cable in this step.

    • Use a plastic opening tool to disconnect the display data cable connector.

    • When reassembling your phone, the display data cable may pop off the connector. This can result in white lines or a blank screen when powering your phone back on. If that happens, simply reconnect the cable and power cycle your phone. The best way to power cycle your phone is to disconnect and reconnect the battery connector.

  16. Finally, disconnect the digitizer cable connector. 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.

I did this tonight, took about 45 min. I used my iFixit tool kit to all the work.

When putting it back together I had an issue with my screen going all "white lines", turns out it was just a loose connection on the digitizer cable, I lifted it and placed it again and all is good with the world.

I had to replace the assembly because I was getting feedback when making calls with headphones and no voice at all with headphones if the phone was plugged into power. Now I can do both.

Thanks so much iFixit for making this possible.

After fixing my headset jack successfully, people could not hear me clearly on the mic. I took it apart again today. The clip that holds the mic in place, next to the jack, had been put down too tight to the mic, which kept it from moving enough to pick sound up clearly -- everything was muddied. I only had to pull the case open a little, unscrew the mic assembly to loosen it, wiggle it back a bit, move the mic a little to align it better with the hole, and then tighten it back down. It works beautifully now and everyone says I sound better than ever. A really easy fix, but it could have been avoided if there were instructions on putting everything back together or at least tips for little things like this.

Hi @Tannaz pourian

If you are stuck on headphone mode first thing you can do is a quick fix if it works for you. You first turn off your iphone and with a gentle hand you can pull out any dirt or particals inside your headphone jack with a pin then clean it with a cotton bud with a little acitone or alcohol ( Don’t use too much of alcohol only little would be fine otherwise it could damage you display if it gets into your phone). Then after completing this process let it dry for a while and turn on your phone. I hope it works for you:) orthewise you have to replace your whole cc flex pannel. Good luck

I recently replaced the headphone jack but when I tried it out after successfully replacing it, the headphones still gave a crackling sound. Less than before but still very noticeable. Anyone have any suggestions to fix this issue?
