alti94 what you are missing on your phone is reference designator L16. It is a filter choke, 600-OHM-25%-0.1A in a 0201 package. Checked some of my datasheets and a TDK MMZ0603S601C should be a perfect fit. Both Mouser.com and Digikey.com do have those in stock. Please be aware of the 0201 (0603 metric): 0.6 mm × 0.3 mm (0.024 in × 0.012 in) package size. You will definitely have to have some experience with micro_soldering to replace it. I am not conceited enough to assume that I know more than the Apple engineers. I do not believe that they would place all these filters on the logic board, just to have us place jumpers across those. I believe that the only proper way of fixing it would be by replacing it. It appears as if it is part of the auto_focus circuit. Hope this helps, good luck.

Hi Alti,

The component looks like a smaller version of the one right above it (parallel).

Your back camera is probably not working anymore, right?

You can jump it using a very thin wire, if you have micro-soldering skills.

If not, take it to a repair shop that offer this kind of service. They can jump it or may be able to find the right replacement component and install it for you.

I could also point you towards repair businesses near you if you are in the USA.

Let me know if that helped.
