19 steps
  1. Turning off your Device

    1. Turn your iPhone off completely to avoid damaging it during the repair. Press the standby button for about three seconds until the slider appears.
    2. Wipe it from left to right. Now your iPhone will shut down completely, which can take about ten seconds.
  2. Removing the enclosure screws

    1. You need a pentalobe screwdriver to open the iPhone 6 Plus.
    2. Remove the two pentalobe screws at the bottom of the enclosure. They are located to the right and left of the Lightning connector. Put the screws in the same container.
      2 x 3.8 mm pentalobe screw
  3. Lifting the display

    1. Put your iPhone 6 Plus on a soft, clean surface to avoid scratching the back.
    2. To lift the front panel, you need a suction cup and a hard plastic pick. If the screen is severely cracked, cover all of it with packing tape before you continue.
    3. Place the suction cup over the Home button (if possible) or next to it (see figure 1). While lifting the screen with the suction cup, insert the hard plastic pick between the aluminum frame and the display frame and press down the aluminum frame. Also use the hard plastic pick to raise the screen (see figure 2). This usually takes several attempts.
    4. As soon as you can lift the screen a few millimeters, you have to carefully work your way around the outside until it’s loosened on both sides (see figure 3).
  4. Disconnecting the battery connector

    1. Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the Phillips screws on the battery connector (see figure 1). Then lift the cover (see figure 2). Put all the parts in the same container.
      1 x 3.2 mm Phillips screw
      1 x 2.3 mm Phillips screw
    2. Now carefully lift the battery connector by inserting the pointed tip of the ESD spudger slightly below the connector (see figure 3). If you don’t have a spudger, you can also try using your fingernail.
  5. Disconnecting the connectors

    1. First remove the five Phillips screws from the silver cover (see figure 1). Put the screws in the same container. Then lift the cover to remove it.

      3 x 1.2 mm Phillips screw

      Front camera/sensor/earpiece/ambient microphone
      Touch ID cable
      LCD
      Touchscreen
    3. Test the new display.
      • Temporarily connect the new display assembly. The LCD connector is a little tricky to connect.
      • Start the iPhone and check whether the LCD and touchscreen work properly. Make sure the connectors are securely plugged in to the connections. If not, the display will remain black or stripes will appear on it.
      • If the display is slightly yellow, see the last step in this manual.

    3. Now remove the rear panel (see figure 3).
  10. Preparing the new display

    iPhone 6 Plus - Preparing the new display 01
    1. Not all available displays have the same features. If necessary, you will have to take some of the following parts from your old display before installing the new screen (see figure 1):
      • Front camera bracket (lightly glued in place)
      • Sensor bracket (lightly glued in place)
    2. You can also take the sticker from your old display.

    1. First stick the ambient microphone to its original position (see figure 1).

      2 x 2.2 mm Phillips screws
      1 x 1.3 mm Phillips screw

    Note that the screws aren’t the same length. If you mix them up, a screw will press against the display glass from the inside and damage it.
