Can I parts swap my 5s?

I was wondering if I could swap a 6s logicboard into a 5s? Like is the newer logic board longer then the older iPhone? Or can I slightly modify the metal iPhone body to take the 6s logic board? I'm not asking if it's recommended I'm asking if it's physically possible lol.

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Obviously you weren't reading the question, does it physically fit? If the screw holes are even remotely similar, I will handle things on a software and connector terminal point, just wondering if it's gonna fit before I spend $270 on a logic board that I don't want, I buy all my phones outright so it's time I saved some money on them


Software point? If you had the expertise to actually make it work you wouldn't be asking this question in the first place.

It will not fit at all. Antennas will not contact properly and you will run into a plethora of issues.

TL:DR - No, it's not possible.

Well, 0 hardware can be shared/is compatible between the 5s and 6s (so using the 5s screen with 6s hardware would not work. The 5s body might fit the logic board and other parts but i severely doubt that too. Ontop of that, all the mounting points are differnet (for the logic board and other parts). If you really want 6s specs in 5s body just get a 5SE.

As Ben said: TL:DR - No, it's not possible.
