Wifi greyed-out, bluetooth and date/time not working

Dear iFixit,

I do have some weird problems with my iPhone 6:

- wifi greyed-out (wifi antenne cable already replaced

- bluetooth keeps spinning/not working

- date/time is stuck (battery already replaced)

- rotate function not working

I hope someone has any clue on what this problem is and how this can be solved.

Kind regards,

Thijn Felix

Try this take the board out and locate the murata wifi module iPhone 6 Teardown step 17 and grab a heat gun and heat up the wifi module for 20 seconds and put it back together and test.

I'm having identical issues. In Settings: General>About> Shows Wi-Fi Address is N/A. Bluetooth however does show a MAC address but when I access Bluetooth from main Settings Menu, it keeps showing the spinning wheel of doom.

I've seen numerous posts and videos stating that its the Wi-Fi module itself. Have seen some videos completely replacing the chip all-together, and others saying it can be from the soldering coming loose under the chip and to just heat the chip as @xterminal suggested.

Can you remove and replace the entire module by re-applying RMA-223 paste? Or do you have to solder the chip back onto the board?

Any suggestions, information, or advice would be greatly appreciated.
