What's the BEST way to remove iPhone 6 EMI shields?
We got a lot of iPhone 6's in that are water damaged and need to remove the EMI shields for proper cleaning. With as much detail as possible, can someone please tell us exactly what you do to remove all of the iPhone 6 EMI shields without damaging the boards?
From what we've seen so far, there's one shield that's a lot more stubborn than the others. Do you use more heat on this one? What kind of heat? Soldering iron with flux? hot air?
Even for the less stubborn shields, we're having a lot more trouble removing them than we did with the iPhone 5s'. For them, we simply used a hot air gun at 250 degrees C for a minute or two, and they pop right off. NOT the case with the iPhone 6...but I'm sure it's because we don't have the proper temperature or aren't using the right method for removing them.
I've looked online and haven't found anything very specific in terms of the right temperature to use with a hot air gun or soldering iron, whether or not to use fllux, etc etc etc.
We currently have a hot air station (with digital temperature controls), a soldering iron, soldering tweezers and flux. We're absolutely open to buying whatever else it is we may need to properly remove these shields.
Please can someone tell us the easiest way to remove them in as much detail as possible?
Thanks so much!
Is this a good question?
