Touch ID sensors are NOT replaceable whatsoever. Doing so inevitably breaks Touch ID on all devices and bricks the phone altogether when reflashes iOS on devices that support Apple Pay. There is no way you can make it work.

As with most components, the home buttons are different, the 5S Touch ID will not fit on the iPhone 6 screen. With a broken Touch ID sensor you will never gain Touch ID functions again. Phones only become bricked during a software update if the original Touch ID scanner is not in the phone. I've not done a screen replacement on newest software and tried a restore, but have had many customers update and no one has come back with any problems!

Hope this helps
