Oh, sorry. I wasn't paying attention. No you cannot swap parts from one model to another

No you can't however you can get some aftermarket housings that are shaped exactly like an iPhone 6 but a smaller version for the iPhone 5. They're calling it the iPhone 6 mini conversion. I've done a few myself.

Just started hearing about these. Sounds pretty cool. Wanna try one

Yeah they look pretty sweet. I've done a few refurbishments with them and it has added value to the phone and sold them for more than a usual 5/5S would go for.

No. You need the original Touch ID. Cannot be replaced. You can replace all the other parts though
