I would not encourage you to reflow the logic board. The component density is vey high, the pcb is very thin and multi-layered and the components are very tiny. Applying heat without knowing what you are doing is a recipe for disaster. You could easily blow SMD passives off the board (if using hot air) and/or cause solder ball explosions or shorts on the underfill-secured IC's or damage to surrounding IC's.

Could i heat the audio codec? I dont think that has under fill.


Do you have any reballing stencils for the iPhone? If so, then remove the chip and reball. Otherwise, you could try but it's just not something I recommend in a general sense.
