iPhone 6 Screen Replacement done in 5 minutes

iPhone 6 Screen Replacement done in 5 minutes


In this video I’m going to show you how to
replace the screen on an iPhone 6. If you want to see any of those other repairs go
ahead and click the links. Here we have the iPhone 6. I’m going to go ahead and turn it
off, grab my Pentalobe screwdriver, and take out the two little screws in the bottom. These
are the same size screws as all of the other iPhones. And you can grab any tools or replacement
parts in the video description below. I’m going to take a suction cup and lift up the
screen just a little bit, so I can slip a pry tool. You can use a plastic one or a metal
one if you want. Just make sure to lift up on the actual metal frame of the screen. Otherwise
you might crack it as you pry it up. So be super careful with that. As you lift up the
screen you’ll see these five screws on the metal plate. Take out those screws, remove
the plate, and then unsnap each of these little clasps. The clasps are very similar to LEGOs.
Just kind of take your little pry tool, pop them underneath, and they’ll unclasp from
the little latch that they’re on. Anyway this is the screen. There’s a very good chance
that when you buy the replacement screen you’re going to have to move over all the individual
parts from one screen to the other. We’re going to start with the earpiece. There’s
three screws up at the top. Take out those screws and then the little bracket comes off.
Put that somewhere safe. Make sure you keep all your screws really organized or you’re
going to have problems later. Here’s the earpiece. Once again, all the parts and tools for this
project can be found in the video description below so go ahead and check that out. I’m
pulling up the front camera and the proximity sensor from the little brackets that they’re
held in, and then I’m pulling off the last little bit that’s taped down by the earpiece.
These parts are really inexpensive. At least they have been in the past with the iPhone
5’s and 4’s. So go ahead and check out the video description if you want to check out
how much these parts are. There’s three screws on both sides of the metal plate and then
one screw down at the bottom. So take those out and there’s two screws that hold the home
button in place. Remove that bracket. And then the home button is just lightly taped
down. It’s just lightly stuck. So peel that up. And there’s one little connector right
there just like the little connectors that were holding the screen down, those little
LEGO pieces. So un-pop that and remember that this is the only home button, the one that
comes with your phone, that will work with the fingerprint scanner. Any other aftermarket
home buttons that you put on the phone will not work with the fingerprint scanner, they’ll
just work as a home button. So keep that in mind. Anyway, lift it off the metal plate.
You can see the ribbing cable that connects the home button up by the earpiece. And this
is the screen. Check the video description below for replacement screens, I’ll have them
linked down there for you. And there’s a good chance you might need to move over the plastic
brackets from one screen to the other, so they just pop right out. And when you put
them back in, you don’t need to worry about gluing them down or anything because the actual
ribbing cable will hold them in the correct place that they need to be. And you’ll see
that here in a second. Anyway, I’m going to grab the earpiece ribbing cable and put that
back in, lining it up with a little peg up at the top. It’s really easy not to mess this
up because there’s little guiding pegs that the ribbing cables sit on top of. And then
each little component has its own little slot up at the top so you can just kind of see
where each little piece goes. The earpiece is going to go down over the top of the camera
and the proximity sensor and those gold little connections points will fold right over the
top of the earpiece. And the camera will go in its slot. Once the camera is in there you
can take your back plate and slide it up over that ribbing cable for the LCD, and line it
up with the hole and then you can grab the bracket for the camera and put it over the
top as well. Remember those three screws that hold that down, and then we can start with
the home button. It should still be relatively sticky from before. Either way, just put it
down in place over the hole. And then fold over that little LEGO piece and snap that
in place just like a LEGO. And then you can grab your bracket, screw that in with the
two screws. And then there’s seven screws around the side of that metal plate so make
sure those are in as well. Now we’re going to take the screen and plug each of those
little connectors in, there’s four of them. So kind of work your way down. You’ll feel
it seat on top of the little plug, and then you can just press it down the rest of the
way. Very similar to LEGOs. Get all four of those in and then while the screen is still
up you can go ahead and turn your phone on just to make sure that it’s working. So make
sure that the touch sensitivity is working and the LCD is working and then turn the phone
off before you do anything else. Put the metal bracket back into place. You got those five
screws. And then you can fold your screen down and press it into place. So make sure
that you start with the top of the screen and slide it up and into the little groove
so that it’s super flush with the edge of the phone. And then you can press the edges
in as you go down, around, and towards the charging port. Make sure you put those bottom
two Pentalobe screws in, and there you go. If you have any questions make sure to leave
them in the comments. Don’t forget to like if this video helped you and don’t forget

  1. how do you take off the screen if it is shattered since the suction cup doesn't work in that case?

  2. Does this help if there are black spots on my screen?

  3. Are all the screws the same?

  4. how do I turn my phone off disconnecting the battery ?

  5. Nice walk-through. A couple of things I would add is to point out that when snapping ribbons back down on the board (towards the end of install) that they do require a decent amount of pressure and make a definitive snapping sound. The second tip I would give is to keep the screws holding the two small metal "cover" plates on each far end of the large metal plate loose so the holes of the six side screws (three on each side) of the large metal plate line up correctly. Also, the glued ribbon parts are pretty strongly attached to case but prying up at the points where tutorial demonstrates works well. Oh yeah, don't forget to power off B4 disconnecting ribbon cables, especially if you have the alarm clock set :/.

  6. Hey, when I went to replace my screen there were only 3 connecting cables, not 4.

  7. seriously, u completely skipped removing all that ribbon shit from the old screen… and I am completely stuck on how to safely remove it. Awesome…

  8. You suck at showing visuals

  9. Great instructions! Fixed my phone thanks to this video 🙂

  10. Fantastic! Easy to follow and precise instructions.

  11. Does this also work on iphone 6s

  12. These multi billion dollar companies sure do know how to scam us out of our hard earned money! For the prices of these phones they shouldn’t break so easily!
    I had my $40 android for over 4 years with no problems. Get an iPhone & the screen shattered within 2 weeks! What

  13. What if the fucken screw doesn't have the cross anymore from the screw driver, how else can I take off the screen

  14. Thanks dear it did help me

  15. perfect!

  16. Why am I watching this I don't even have tools for this

  17. Now its time to make some money off of those who need their screen replaced but wont see this video lol

  18. Good luck for you cause am getting a iPhone I am not going to do that

  19. This helped me fix me nieces iphone, thanks Mr JRE!

  20. This is a nearly perfect guide. It is clear, concise, and the voice instructions match the images well.

    Disconnecting the battery may be well worth two minutes to potentially prevent a short, which may destroy the phone. The battery connector is under a two screw panel on the right about halfway down. The slightly raised side of the panel goes on the left with its longer screw. Also, consider getting a static wrist band for $5.

    KEEP YOUR SCREWS VERY WELL ORGANIZED. Use a large, well-lit work surface, and sort them with an ice cube tray. Almost every singe one is different; any in the wrong hole can destroy the phone.

    Some parts you should use tweezers or a tiny flat spatula to remove or position, but some I found easier to just use my finger, working carefully by feel. As the video says, be particularly careful with the home button and its connector. Examine the one you're taking out closely before and as you remove it, so you know where each bit goes. It's straight-forward, but the parts are tiny, so be patient.

    My own replacement screen had a few stuck-on strips of plastic that needed removing. It also came with the little plastic holders at the top whereas the example in this video did not.

    Be prepared to spend 1-2 hours in total if you're not electronically experienced, which I certainly was not last week. Having done it, I don't think it's nearly as difficult as I imagined it would be at first.

  21. Do u lose all the stuff on your phone

  22. Thank you

  23. Thanks a lot for this video! This save me a bunch of time, money, and hassle! I didn’t think I had what it took to fix this until I watched your video. Just so you know, that little ribbon loop that you said you weren’t sure what it was for but you thought it was important, it’s not important. I broke it by accident while taking it apart, I cannot see any issues from it yet.

  24. Does the phone fresh restart when you put the screen on

  25. Will it reset everything? :/

  26. Why does he sound so disinterested ?

  27. Instructions not clear now i have a Beta Note 12

  28. Thank you for taking the time to make this video, it made fixing my broken screen a breeze!

  29. Thanks for your video! i fix my broken iphone 6 🙂

  30. Im having trouble unscrewing the first screws. Is is still lefty loosey, righty tighty

  31. Nice vid great job

  32. thank you so much for this and the battery replacement videos ! i ended up messing up the last bit and pressed too hard which cracked a little bit of the screen lol

  33. Thank you, it worked!

  34. TKQ v much for video

  35. Great video, thanks, but you could have saved me HOURS of time and anguish if you said 'make sure the connector cables are in the right order when you put the earpiece back in'! (from: 3:04) because – if you get them in the wrong order, like I did, you won't be able to connect them later – obviously. I had to go back several steps before I realized this. This must sound obvious if you've done it a many times, but not if you are doing it for the first time like me. Cheers anyway.

  36. lost 4 screws still working…

  37. Worked great for me. Despite the part that removes and replaces the front camera and connectors, this tutorial is amazing and did the job for me (along with some other online resources). Thanks a lot, Jerry.

  38. أفضل من كل العرب

  39. thanks so much i've just saved some monney doing it myself

  40. One question
    How do I put it back together?

  41. Thank you for your video.

  42. The ribbon on the home button broke trying to take it out like in the video. Then he says, "Remember that this is the only home button that will work with the fingerprint scanner"
    2:10
    Careful with that step

  43. I can't get the little plastic things out, a little help?

  44. I have an iPhone 6 with a cracked screen. Ordered a new screen that came with great instructions, but the old phone's "clasps" has four leads where the new screen has only two clasps. I think Amazon sent the wrong replacement?

  45. thanks a lot for this video. I Replace my Screen and all working correct. thanks a lot agin.

  46. Waaaaaay better the the other videos thx!

  47. Will this work the same on the 6s

  52. Love it! Thank you for this!!

  53. Does anyone know what to do with a screen that doesn’t seem to fit properly? I just finished installing a new screen on my iPhone 6 and the screen is out of the frame.

  54. If it take at least 5 minties to put a new screen on, then why do they take 30 minutes in the apple store?

  55. My dad’s iPhone isn’t working.I don’t blame you, because maybe it didn’t work in the first place.Thanks for helping, though!

  56. Nice one! Helped me loads!

  57. Just like a LEGO

  60. my dad was gonna kill me until i told him could fix it.

    Edit: i fixed it he still thinks i'm an idiot

  61. Can u fix my for free I got a iPhone 6

  62. Thanks so much! I think I watched your video last year when I changed the battery. haha. Either way, my wife has a new screen and it only cost me $25. Thank You!

  63. thanks

  64. Getting the screen out shouldn't be too hard, the screen is already halfway popped out on mine. My brother through it down the stairs. Lmao

  65. iPhones are great. 🙂

  66. Jheeez! I ain’t gonna mess with this.

  67. Make sure to disconnect the battery. Also, mine wouldn't turn on. Then I looked it up and after you disconnect the battery and are all done, before reconnecting the battery hold the power button for 20 seconds. Then reconnect the battery. It turns on now and works fine.
    More tips: be very careful with pressing the connectors on. Don't press in the middle with your finger, press on one side and then the other. Pry them off from the starting from the ribbon side it comes off easier that way. Don't use anything sharp or metal when doing any of this. Also, if you poke the battery with a sharp piece of metal it could explode. The pins on the board are easy to become out of alignment if you connect and disconnect the ribbon cables over and over. That happened to me once and I had a micro-soldering guy fix it for me. Lots of things can go wrong doing this so just be very gentle and careful.

  68. Finally someone who shows it up close and shows wat exactly their doing ✊🏽❗️❗️

  69. Can someone show me or share a video on how to disconnect the battery when doing this screen replacement thing.

  70. simple, straight forward, uncomplicated video…great job! You gained a new subscriber. 🙂

  71.

  72. Hi I damaged the flex cable of my iphone x display. Can i change the flex cable only?

  73. I made many mistakes while watching this video, so I’m gonna blame it on you. Oof

  74. Thanks. This was very well explained. Still took me more liek 45 minutes, butt hats becaus eof my own stupidity. (I accidentally sealed one of the connecter ribbon cables under the metal plate, spent like 10 mins wonder why mine only had 3, and then had to unscrew everything to fix my mistake)

  75. Can you repair both of my iphone sixes

  76. Thanks now my phone doesn’t work

  77. Fuck this I pay someone to do I’m too busy 😂

  78. looks super easy hey, good job very informative, well done

  79. Awesome video. Saved me 50 bucks. I didn’t take the battery out, just powered down like the video said. Everything works fine. It took me about 20 minutes. But I didn’t need to replace the camera part at the top. DO NOT MIX UP THE SCREWS. They are very specific. He says the connectors fit like legos. If legos were microscopic. 🙂

  80. this doesnt work i tried it on my iphone 6 and it didnt work and copied everything he did

  81. My 6plus turns on but not able to enter code or scroll. What could be my problem

  98. Hi, i was wondering whats wrong with my iphone 7 home button. It makes a really lound noise when you clicked it. Even if its on silent, it still makes the same noise. and i also notice that the sound also appears whenever i clicked anything that leads to vibration of my iphone 7.

  99. Who's still watching this in 2019, I just fixed my younger brother's iPhone 7 with this tutorial.
