Can an iPhone 6s Screen be transferred onto a normal iPhone 6?

I recently shattered my iPhone 6 screen and it's no longer working, and I'm extremely interested in the 6s but don't want to drop $900 for a new phone when mine just needs a new screen.

So, my question is I can purchase an iPhone 6s screen and install it to a iPhone 6, and would it work?

I'm extremely curious to if this is possible and willing to try.

Is this a good question?

This is not possible for a couple of reasons.

  1. The FPC connectors are not going to be the same. Throughout the history of the iphone no two models have had the same FPC connectors. If you look at iPhone 3 vs 3gs the connections weren't the same. Then with the iPhone 5/5C/5S, none of those were the same either. Now, I have not seem a screen for the 6S yet but I am confident that the connections between the 6 and 6S are going to have at least a minuscule difference, if not being profoundly different all together.

# Even if the connections were EXACTLY the same it is very doubtful that the LCD would work due to programming differences on the logic boards of the iPhone 6 and 6S. Not to mention the difference in hardware (e.g. touchforce 3d Screen on the iphone 6). Not only do you have mechanical differences between the two pieces of hardware, there are also dimensional differences that would make seating the thicker iPhone 6s LCD into the housing of an iPhone 6 an impossibility.

Hope my answer helps.

"Throughout the history of the iphone no two models have had the same FPC connectors."

Until now. The iPhone 5s and iPhone SE LCD display assemblies are EXACTLY the same.

Actually @rscellandtech im sorry but you guys are in fact wrong. I just replaced my iPhone 6 with my iPhone 6s screen along with the LCD homebuttion plate. The cords will go right in there and everything works properly, I am on the phone as we speak

Well, funny story. Because people keep asking if they can put an i6 screen on their i6S. The general consensus is no. However your question is kind of the opposite. So you want to use the i6S screen? Which near as I can tell, doesn't have readily available parts. But, if it did. They did use some i6S parts, a digitizer/lcd, on an i6. And it didn't exactly work, from the pictures. This was pre-release. All that was shown, was the screen lit up, with a gear logo on it. So, would it work? Maybe. Would it do what you want? Not sure, if you could just get an i6 lcd/digitizer anyways?

Yes, I want to put an iPhone 6s digitizer/lcd on the iPhone 6. Repairing my iPhone would only cost $109 at the closest Apple Store, but this is just an idea that I had.

I love the idea, but like I said. It's pretty doubtful it'll work. The best you'll probably get is a display, that won't properly display. I would just find a replacement i6 display assembly. Like here

As a phone tech I could honestly say this will not work because of the logic boards connection between the screens, they look the same but they physically have different puzzle connections so even if it seems like it would work it wouldn't because the screens connection won't line up with the logic boards connections, and the 3D Touch feature on the 6S series is the main reason it wouldn't work.

Correct! Use the iPhone 6 screen with the iPhone 6 and the 6s with the 6s otherwise you will damage your motherboard connectors trying to connect it.. all connectors for each model is always changed by Apple! Always! Screens are cheap although motherboard issues results in a new phonemost cases!

Do you mean different like the 4 and 4s?

Im unsure why people need to comment without knowledge on the subject

You should be able to find an iPhone 6 screen for sale more easily than a 6s screen. If you already have a 6s screen, I'd recommend selling it on eBay etc. and using the money from that to buy a 6 screen.

Hi everyone.

I have not in theory tried but couldn’t do it too easy. The heat ended up the phone and it crashed, not a good buy to lead into this idea. Maybe try another month again.
