iPhone mini? iPhone 5se? 5s Plus? After a rather long rumor cycle, we finally have our hands on the new iPhone SE. Billed as a 5s with better specs, we're excited to see the perfect union of existing Apple tech in a new body. Kinda like Taco Bell—same ingredients, new menu item. Let's open it up and spill the beans!

Este teardown (desmontagem analítica) não é um guia de reparo. Para reparar seu/sua iPhone SE, use o nosso manual de serviço.

  1. iPhone SE Teardown, iPhone SE Teardown: passo 1, imagem 1 %32 iPhone SE Teardown, iPhone SE Teardown: passo 1, imagem 2 %32
    • Out with the old, and in with the new—hardware, that is. Here's the skinny on what's hiding behind that oh-so-familiar face:

    • Apple A9 processor with embedded M9 motion coprocessor

    • 16 or 64 GB of storage

    • 4-inch, 1136 x 640 pixels (326 ppi) Retina display

    • 12 MP iSight camera supporting 4K video recording with 1.22 µ pixels, and a 1.2 MP ƒ/2.4 FaceTime HD camera

    • 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi‑Fi + Bluetooth 4.2 + NFC + 19-band LTE

    • Touch ID sensor supporting user authentication and Apple Pay

  2. iPhone SE Teardown: passo 2, imagem 1 %32 iPhone SE Teardown: passo 2, imagem 2 %32 iPhone SE Teardown: passo 2, imagem 3 %32
    • Shifting our attention to the rose gold rear case, we spot the model number— A1662, never before seen in the wild.

    • Colors notwithstanding, in a side-by-side comparison, the SE is nearly indistinguishable from its predecessor.

    • We're not surprised. While the SE represents a substantial performance boost over the 5s, they have the same display and Touch ID sensor, and identical physical dimensions.

    • One new feature we can spot is the matte chamfered edges around the display.

    • Now for the step we don't like. Pentalobes: a five-pointed reminder that Apple doesn't really want you opening up your device.

    • Still, these pentalobes are totally cute and come in a matching rose gold.

    • Setting the pretty pink screws aside, we iSclack the top off—and there's no pesky, color-matching display adhesive in sight. Compared to Apple's S-series flagships, this opening procedure is a snap.

    • We had speculated that the display gasketing in the 6s and 6s Plus was added for water resistance or structural reinforcement supporting 3D Touch. Its absence from this model and some preliminary tests suggests it's the latter.

  3. iPhone SE Teardown: passo 4, imagem 1 %32 iPhone SE Teardown: passo 4, imagem 2 %32
    • Just like in the iPhone 5s, lurking beneath the display of the SE we find the familiar Touch ID cable booby trap.

    • For those not in the know, this cable adds a small element of danger to disassembly, as pulling up the display too far without first removing the bracket and disconnecting the cable could cause accidental damage to the cable.

    • We're itching to do some comparisons and parts testing—but, safety first. Let's disconnect that battery!

    This guide would be a lot more useful and accessible if it didn't assume knowledge or pre-reading of past iPhone teardowns.

    cromas - Responder

    This isn't really meant to be a guide of any kind, it's more of a look-and-see/show-and-tell kind of thing. While some teardowns are perfectly fine for disassembly guide, that isn't really the goal.

    Dave Davidson -

    I opened my iPhone to find its missing the metal cover that goes over the ribbon attaching the screen to the rest of the phone (the lego piece attachment by home button). Is it a big deal that my phone doesn’t have that piece? Or should I buy a replacement for for it?

    Currently my phone wont turn on or charge..could that missing cover be the reason? Right now I’m thinking it has to do with logic board having already replaced charging port to eliminate that as a cause.

    Tye Hegre - Responder

    I just ripped my cable. Give me some F in chat

    zyavboy - Responder

    f but if you know how to fix it then please help me cause i just did as well

    • Off pops the display assembly!

    • A side-by-side comparison of displays out of the 5s (left) and SE (right) reveals... they're pretty much identical!

    • The similarities are more than skin deep. After a little testing, we found the 5s display is plug-and-play in the SE—fitment, connectors, and functionality are the same. It fires right up. That means replacement parts and guides are already available!

    Hello, I saw Step 5 second picture,

    If iPhone SE installed 5S screen assembly, and then power on, to open the camera app, switch to the selfie shots, and turn on the flash, 5S screen will detect light with pre-flash white balance, and then to 300% brightness light-emitting it? I was wondering whether 5S screen is working? thank you!

    Feng John - Responder

    Just to confirm, The iphone se can has its screen replaced with an iphone 5s screen? Are they completely interchangeable?

    Tony Jackson - Responder

    I was told by the guy that replaced my screen that the aftermarket screens for 5S do not work properly on SE. I don't know if that was accurate, but he does a lot of them. It's possible that there's an issue with the other accessories attached to the screen.

    FWIW, the clone screen he put on mine (which was supposedly intended for the SE, but I wouldn't rule out the possibility of these discount direct export companies putting the wrong product in the wrong box) ended up with me back there twice because the light/proximity sensor did not work. He ended up slapping on the front end of a traded-in SE just to get me happy and out of there. For the curious, the clone screen also had markedly worse colors (which were inconsistent within the screen itself), screen-door effect, build quality, and touch sensing (ghost presses). For some reason my touch ID sensor didn't seem to ever align properly in it either, and the low-light proximity sensor, for the five minutes it worked each time, was blue instead of red.

    Dylan Colborne - Responder

    I’m a little late maybe, but the display unit of iPhone 5s and SE doesn’t work with each other.

    1. The sensor/camera connector is not even of the same dimension. It just doesn’t plug in. (The picture above clearly showed that!)

    2. The touch panel on the iPhone 5s won’t work with iPhone SE even if it can be plugged in.

    3. The screen on the iPhone 5s somehow works with iPhone SE, but you’ll have a chunky background and horizontal shadows all over the screen as if there is some clock desync going on.

    • No need to repeat the mistakes of the past—we've mastered these handy battery tabs!

    • The Li-ion battery in the iPhone SE comes in at 3.82 V, 6.21 Whr, and 1624 mAh. This offers a minor (but notable) capacity increase from the 1560 mAh cell in the 5s.

    • Though it's not quite as capacious as the 1715 mAh cell found in the larger (and more power-hungry) iPhone 6s, Apple states this battery will provide up to 10 days of standby, 14 hours of talk time, and 13 hours of video playback.

    • Despite the apparently interchangeable displays, the SE's battery connector differs from that of the 5s. So, no chance to supercharge your old 5s, unfortunately.

    can i just the the whole backboard some where?

    jesus loya - Responder

    If you're changing housings might as well just leave the battery for last

    • Next up, we pluck the upgraded rear-facing camera from its berth.

    • While it looks pretty similar to the one in the 5s (left), the SE's camera (right) has far fewer pins on its connector.

    • Do you think those extra megapixels ever get stuck in connector traffic?

    • The SE's iSight camera gets a resolution bump up to 12 MP, but a decrease in pixel pitch down to 1.22µm from the 1.5µm pitch in the 5s.

    • Since these are the exact same specs as the main camera in the iPhone 6s, we'd hoped the cameras might be interchangeable—but alas, our hopes of creating a complete Apple Frankenphone might be overreaching.

    It actually looks like the number of pins are similar between the two camera connectors; I count 32 on the left connector (16 x 2) and 30 on the right (15 x 2).

    shawnbarden - Responder

    Guys, is it possible to turn rear camera to 90 degrees to record widescreen video with holding phone vertical? Maybe with some cable extender or etc?

    It is really annoying that you must always hold phone horizontally to make normal videos, still the camera manufacturers can't make camera which shoot widescreen on any side... or very obvious design flaw by Apple - why they even offer users to make vertical videos with vertical bars? No one needs them.

    Alexon - Responder

    Do you think I can buy a SE camera and put on 5S ?

    robin050 - Responder

    no you cant at all it says that

    Trans1000 -

    where can I purchase an iPhone SE camera?

    Leslie Veizaga - Responder

    @sam @andrew

    Hey I’m curious how small the actual camera sensor is? It seems very small for its resolution. I know these days it’s all about the colors but wondering how much resolution a camera can have. 50MP isn’t enough for me! Let’s go higher!

    Padraic Hoselton - Responder

    The sensor size is the same as the 6s, i’ve seen “1/3″ (4.80 x 3.60 mm)” on the internets. I’m not sure about theoretical megapixel limits, but I think a common new camera system is using multiple, specialized, image sensors for better clarity and performance in varying lighting conditions. So “better” pixels over “more” pixels.

    Sam Goldheart -

    well, i kind of curious, is it doable to change iphone se camera with iphone 6s plus camera that has OIS feature?

    • We interrupt this teardown to bring you: more cowbell teardown!

    • Our friends at Creative Electron have been getting their teardown on, X-ray style!

    • We have for your enjoyment, three generations of iPhone 5 configurations.

    • Really, the only obvious change is the addition of the bi-metal Apple logo.

    • That, and the addition of the Touch ID cable between the 5 and 5s (unfortunate placement still intact in the SE, too).

    Sans compter le fait que la carte mère a complètement été revue à chaque génération.

    • Out speaker assembly, out vibrator, out SIM card and tray!

    • Our testing confirms all these bits are interchangeable with their counterparts from the 5s—same form, same function. They bolt right up, and they work like a charm. Neat!

    • Rose gold remains SE exclusive though, so you may need to upgrade for proper color coordination.

    • Also of note: waterproof seals! There be foamy silicone seals surrounding some—but, mysteriously, not all—of the logic board connections.

    • The front camera, volume controls, and rear camera connectors all get the fancy waterproofing treatment, while the LCD, digitizer, battery, and Lightning connector assembly all seemingly go without.

    Yea…found that one out first hand earlier today when my SE fell out of my breast pocket (I thought was buttoned) into the deap end of the pool. I snached quickly and it was not in water for more then 2 seconds and towel dried then into bag of rice for several hours. My phone now has vertical barring, fading icons, and problematic home button. Came to this site to check how to open up the phone and was able to fix all the problems but my rear facing camera is also attached to the back of the screen opposite side of the touch cable and I must have loosed the attachment point because the rear facing camera is not working. Going back in to see what is going on with that. And it was not stressed s enough that the touch cable is a x*%ch of a connector to put back…word of warning especially those with larger digiets.

    • We finally wrestle the Lightning connector assembly out of the 5s SE.

    • It looks just like the 5s assembly, but the connectors are a smidge different; we couldn't get a 5s/SE swap to work out.

    • Maybe a change to allow for USB 3.0? Speculation welcome.

    • Whoa, now—looks like the button cable got a little more complicated since last time.

    • The power button bracket now has some kind of contact cable doohickey, instead of a simple clip, potentially for grounding.

    • With that, we're down to the rear case—time to wrap this teardown up!

    Any clear idea where the NFC antenna is? is that it on the back, or the new "inlaid SS Apple logo?"

    I've waited YEARS for the iPhone to finally adopt NFC and Qi charging like my trusty Nexus 4, they're halfway there...!

    David Spalding - Responder

    Im going to say that the extra bit on the power volume flex is the NFC antenna. That is the only reason for Apple to add that extra little bit. All of the other antennas look to be the same from the 5S so this would be the new antenna for NFC.

    Alec -

    The NFC antenna is the top bezel itself, the connector is the screw post on the top right of the logic board, which connects to the extra piece on the power button flex.

    Tom Chai -

    Hi, has anyone heard if you can move a custom colored iphone 5s housing on an SE yet ?

    andrebhr - Responder

    If you mean a case/cover, the dimensions are the same. So cases for the 5 and 5s will fit the SE.

    Was that your question? :}

    David Spalding -

    No, i mean is the rear case replacement of the Se identical with the iPhone 5s ?

    andrebhr -

    From the x-ray shot in step 8 the screw placement and parts dimensions are extremely similar so it seems likely that a custom rear housing meant for a 5S would work. However, there are some other variables like screw size that are harder to judge from that image. It would be interesting to know for sure though.

    bryancloud -

    What material of apple logo ? It is return X-Ray )))

    Pavel - Responder

    Does anyone know where I can get a replacement bracket? I ripped the contact cable by mistake and am having trouble finding a replacement.

    • iPhone SE Repairability: 6 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair)

    • The display assembly is the first component out of the phone, simplifying screen replacements.

    • The battery is fairly easy to access, even though it's not technically "user replaceable."

    • The Touch ID cable could be easily ripped out of its socket if a user is not careful when opening the phone.

    • The iPhone SE still uses Pentalobe screws on the exterior, making it difficult to open without specialized tools.

    • The hardest part of any repair is knowing what to do. Thanks to the similarities to the 5s and our repair guides, repairs on the SE are already excellently documented—check it out.

    The 5s metal plate covering the home button *looks* the same as the SE’s, but I discovered it leaves the button too loose to click properly.

    Mitch - Responder


From your original picture, it appears the on/off switch in on the top. Is this correct? (I HATE the switch on the side).

Gail - Responder

Yup! The power button is in the same top position as it was in the 5s (and older) models.

Evan Noronha -

Thanks for the clarity! I really hate the side on/off button placement on the 6's. Stupid.

Gail -

It needs to be on the side for the 6 and on as they are a lot bigger and it is ergonomically impossible to place the power button on the top or you'd have to stretch your finger to reach it. By the way I agree with you.

es-webb -

Can you confirm that the display assemblies are exactly the same? Including the mid frame latches/clips? Would the display right out of an iPhone 5 not only function, but fit perfectly as well?

The Stem - Responder

The display on an iPhone 5 is significantly different from the one found in the 5s, however we've tested and confirmed that the displays that ship with the 5s and SE are interchangeable with respect to fitment and function (and they weigh the same to the nearest .1 g).

Evan Noronha -

Sorry, that was a typo! I meant 5s... so this confirms we should be able to use existing stock of iPhone 5s in the iPhone SE without issue?

The Stem -

Are you able to determine if the glass used on the SE is as durable as the 5S? Had my SE for 2 months now and it's badly marked. My 5S display lasted it's entire lifetime without a scratch.

Iestyn Lloyd -

I can confirm that the displays are in fact different. Using an iPhone 5S screen on an iPhone SE will work, but the screen will be flickering and also have vertical lines all over it (looks like when the touch controller is broken).

Marcus Friberg -

Marcus, they are in fact the same screen. If you have flickering then it could be due to disconnecting the battery without turning it off. If you have lines then you have FPC seating failure. I would double check your screen and quality.

Eddie -

Do you see any water resistance material added to SE?

joshua2o - Responder

No, there is none that I can see.

Eddie -

A superb tear-down, as usual. Thank you :)

I wonder how much caffeine iFixit editors drink before writing up the copy, since the "unfunny-isms" seem to be in place, as usual - failed attempts to be "quirky and witty" fall flat on their faces. If you'd focus on the hardware, there's plenty of comedians in the world, and - sorry to say - you fail at any hope of putting them out of work.

Stick to the tech, kill the quips.

Matt Foot - Responder

Different people have different senses of humor. While the quirkiness doesn't make me laugh outright, it doesn't bother me in the slightest.

If it really bothers you that much, I can only recommend you lighten up.

Ties Koot -

How about the prox/ face camera? Same as 5s? Or different? And volume flex? Looks like 5C

nexusnl - Responder

Prox looks to be the same, but iFixit didn't reveal that part to us.

Power volume flex is a bit different, I believe that it has the NFC antenna on the end of it.

Alec -

They are in fact the same and you will have no issues.

Eddie -

Can anyone confirm if the SE has the same NVME storage controller found in the 6s? That's pretty much the last thing that's holding me back from purchasing the SE as I am pleased with the rest of the components I've seen so far.

Austin - Responder

It may possibly, but I only know of this being used in the higher capacity models of the 6S? Maybe the 64 GB SE has it, but its not a guarantee.

Alec -

Is the chassis the same as/interchangeable with the 5s?

kroboz - Responder

We'll do some further testing to verify, but yes, everything looks like it bolts right up.

Jeff Suovanen -

any news about transplanting the logic board from an SE into a 5S? only difference I found on the Pics was the battery connector.

milankieserling -

No they are different with a few of the standoffs being located differently.

Eddie -

You can install se logic board in 5s chassis, but you'll need to transplant se power button flex ,volume controller flex to 5s too.

Ariunbold Enkhbold -

are the unitbody exchangable between 5s and SE then?

colinshum - Responder

No they are not.

Eddie -

yes they are interchangable

Ariunbold Enkhbold -

I understand that display is compatible with iPhone 5s from the writeup, but does it mean Front Facing Camera Flash is also working when iPhone SE has 5S Display?

Sudev G - Responder

Yes! Of course, the flash is a software feature, it just lights up the screen, no special hardware required.

djlobb01 -

Thank you very much

Bruce - Responder

Keep up the humour, ignore that other guy, you guys are awesome.

Noah O'Donoghue - Responder

Does the new Apple logo act as some kind of antenna?

Ed Chen - Responder

No, it's just a lump of steel.

Tom Chai -

No, it just makes it possible to remove the logo from the frame, making way for mods for said logo. (though i doubt it was intentional for that to be used for mods)

Tristan Haugh -

I think I know the answer already... But it is possible to upgrade to a 6s fingerprint sensor/button? Are they interchangeable?

Whitling2k - Responder

That's not likely as there are a number of obstacles to overcome. First, the cable design is completely different. The 6s home button connects to the display assembly and the cable's routed through the top of the display. Secondly, the connector design is significantly different. And, if these weren't issues, you'd still need to calibrate the logic board to the new Touch ID sensor which, as of now, only Apple can do.

Evan Noronha -

The iPhone SE shipped in china seems to have a different screen. The border of the display is yellow which looks not comfortable. One of the explanations is the color temperature mechanism. But the yellow border is not uniform distribution. So l doubt the quality of the low-priced iPhone. Can anyone help me out?

Cen li - Responder

This happened to me in America too, many of the displays are bad. Even after I replaced it I can see a dark area near the top edge on white screens, but not as badly as the first one. Most people speculate that it is a flaw due to LED backlighting yields.

I would replace it if you can, it is a defect and some people have state it can get worse over time.

jase240 -

Has there been any testing of retina flash with use of iPhone 5s display part in iPhone SE?

Is the iPhone 5s FaceTime camera installed in iPhone SE capable of taking live photos?

lukeankrum - Responder

Any info on SE mic/speakerphone and audio/DAC components? I use my iPhone speakerphone for over 90% of my calls, so I'm curious how well it does in terms of speaker volume and clarity at both ends, also how well the DAC does for music playback through decent headphones. How do these components compare to other models? Thanks for your continued informative work!

Philip - Responder

Ummm, wait, same display as 5s? That mean yelowing/ pink issue in all 5 family display gonna happend in SE? thats not good

skywalkercau - Responder

So can I place SE's motherboard into my 5S? I could receive updates even in 2020, if that is possible

froggymate95 - Responder

Wouldn't work, as quite a few of the parts don't swap. Camera, dock connector, etc.

Todd -

Would the new bigger battery from this SE swap into a 5s? Sounds like an easy way to gain a few miliamps...

Todd -

"Despite the apparently interchangeable displays, the SE's battery connector differs from that of the 5s. So, no chance to supercharge your old 5s, unfortunately." No, you would need to swap motherboards in order to do that(

froggymate95 -

Like never before? You mean with removable battery and SD card slot?

ZippyDSMlee - Responder

Hey guys,

Is it possible to replace touch id in iPhone SE with home button from iPhone 4S ? Have you tried that ?

uzza17 - Responder

4s? did you mean 5s? No touch ID is interchangeable for Touch ID function. But as a home button only yes the 5s/SE will work either way.

Eddie -

I'm no apple fanboy but pentalobe screwdrivers are pretty much everywhere. Every screen you buy comes with one. I don't think it has ever ever increased the difficulty of a repair for me.

Rob Etere - Responder

True, but for those that this is their first repair then it can cause a hiccup.

Eddie -

I'm no apple fan boy and i know they are proprietary but pentalobe screws don't make it more difficult to repair. Pentalobe screwdrivers are pretty much in most kits. It's never stopped me replacing a screen. In fact everytime you buy a screen you get another screwdriver.

Rob Etere - Responder

Some don't ship with kits. Just depends on where you buy.

Eddie -

Does anyone know if the Apple used the higher strength aluminum for the SE?

Ed Chen - Responder

In Australia we have great distances between towers and I've found it near impossible to get any specs on receptivity. Anyone help? How do iPhones compare with each other?


Stuart - Responder

Has anyone got some specs on reception quality. Are these SE's as good as the 4S on reception ?

Stuart - Responder

Can you provide any info on how strong is the back camera lens cover glued to case? Can it be easily pushed in from the outside?

This happened on my old iPhone 5, when I accidentaly applied a little pressure on camera lens cover with my finger (like the adhesive would give up or something). And I am wondering if iPhone SE is also vulnerable to this (if it has the same design around the camera at all)? If anyone else has/had the similar issue, let me know, thanks.

Mirage - Responder

Does the an iPhone 5s lcd screen fit on the iphone SE?

FixLounge - Responder

yes it does.

Eddie -

I would be curious to see if these parts could fit into this back housing

would be an interesting project and if it works, you'd have an SE the way it should have looked.

timbsales - Responder

Done it with my SE and it looks amazing. I got the mini ip7 rear housing from aliexpress instead tho.

neil robinson -

Step 9

Do you think they could have put the 5mp front camera from the 6s in?

steelersfan2493 - Responder

hi friends, i have a question

The Touch ID are the same the iPhone 5s, so i see one different --the rubber-- covering the lens between the Tocuh ID and Case of iPhone, this piece that prevents dust and water from entering.

the iPhone SE hasn't ?

thank you for you answer

zaerohell - Responder

Is it possible to stick all the SE insides into a 5c. Looks like 5c runs like a Se

japanthejoelious - Responder

Unfortunately no.

Eddie -

SO the camera is not interchangeable?

Joe - Responder

Hi i'm from indonesia. I want to ask you, can the case of iphone se replace on iphone 5s? So it's look like iphone se but the machine is still iphone 5s. Thanks

Eddie -

I have a damaged SE body with broken screen and im planning on replacing the body and display, as far as you said I can replace the screen with a 5s. Can I buy a body from a 5s and migrate all the components of the SE to the 5s body? As far as i saw are most likely the same but you said no and then the last comment confused me

aguila50003 - Responder

I can confirm that you can a use iPhone 5s housing with Iphone SE inturnals.

simonruddick2 -

what is the screen on the se made out of

Ruben Larrosa - Responder

I keep seeing that the 5S and SE have the exact same display, front camera etc. However iFixit says that the full screen assembly that includes the front camera, ear speaker and everything is not compatible with the SE, just the screen digitizer is. Does anyone know why this is???

robhopkins - Responder

Different connectors, presumably.

Is is possible to place the internals of an SE in to a 5c case? From the images, it looks like it shouldn't be too difficult...

kelvin danso - Responder

Hi I have the iPhone SE and have been experiencing issues with network and have done everything suggested up to removing and replacing the SIM card and still saying searching. Would this be a disconnected antenna and is there a way to determine if this is what the problem is? I have all other services and capabilities working aside from the phone use

Tim Steer - Responder

I have the iPhone SE and having problems with phone capabilities of tried everything up to removing the Sim card and reinstalling everything else is working. could this be an antenna disconnect?

Would it be possible to swap the Processor from an SE and put it into a 5s as a performance upgrade?

Sean Troop - Responder

Help… i recently swapped out the back housing and there is a flex cable that tore behind the power button. It isnt the power + volume flex cable… its a long skinny cable that gets screwed on into the case… what is that cable and where do i find a replacement?

Cesar Grijalva - Responder

Do you guys know if the iPhone SE body is interchangeable with the 5S? I’m wondering because i’m doing a repair, a full body one.

Cameron White - Responder

Dear editor, I am a user from China. I recently found dust inside my iPhone SE camera. I want to open the phone and then I want to buy a sponge pad on the camera inside. I only have one problem. Is the iPhone 5S camera dustproof sponge mat and SE interchangeable?

Zhang - Responder

Hey, my brightness has been messed up since I replaced my screen three days ago. It only messed up this morning though. Is it fixable? What should I look for, if it is fixable ,when I go back in to check it out?

Rainbow Fire - Responder

Hi Rainbow Fire, something might be blocking your ambient light sensor. If you want to open the phone and take a look at the upper sensor cable, you might find some film blocking the sensor, or that it’s not properly placed in the display. If you do opt to open your phone, be sure to use our sensor assembly guide and not this teardown!

Sam Goldheart -


I dropped my phone and took it to a shop to be repaired and they came back saying its unrepairable is that possible they said the board is badly damaged is it possible to change it.

sassy_tashxxx - Responder

yes it is replaceable, you just need to source out a new board.

Tristan Haugh -

Does the 5 and 5s or 5SE have the same internal layout? I mean the screw hole placement, cables location. I wanna change my iphone 5 back cover to the iphone 5s or se cover.

afifyolopico - Responder

Ich habe ein kleine Großes Proplem…! Und zwar ist der anschluss für die touch erkennung kaputt am Logic board. Kann man das irgendwie wieder in ordnung bringen?

Does anyone know where the EEPROM chips are located. Specifically the anti-Rollback EEPROM (U0900) and the Baseband EEPROM (U_EEP_RF)? I am considering a board swap and I will also need to exchange these two chips.

Philip P - Responder

Don’t forget that Touch ID only works if you remove the home button (3 screws) from the damaged screen and install it on the working screen you’re replacing it with. And transfer the metal home button cover plate from the damaged screen to the working screen too, even though it looks identical to the working screen’s plate. If you don’t, the button won’t click properly.

Hello folks,

do you know where the proximity detector is located?

osvaldo - Responder

hi folks

do you know where the proximity detector is located and how does it work?

Thank you

osvaldo - Responder

Hi osvaldo, the proximity sensor is on the front camera and sensor cable behind the speaker on the back of the display. You can look at the iPhone 5s guide for more details. Here you can read how the sensor works (optical photoelectric sensor):

Tobias Isakeit -

so no anti-static equipment is needed?

Ernesto Quintanilla Jr - Responder

Perfect thanks

Fares - Responder

My phone got submerged in water and i took the logic board out and all the water indicators are red. There are no signs of corrosion. Has been cleaned with 91% isopropyl alcohol. But it seems some of the logic board is encased. I would think there is corrosion in there. How would I get to that. I’m just trying to get photos of my child from there.

Ps. Phone does not power on. Have tried other logic boards and phone powers on.
