Question about screen replacement.

I bent a flex cable on my xracked iphone 6+ screen so I am ordering a new one. I'm lazy and don't want to grab the old lcd shield plate off my current screen and am ordering a pre assembled one. I plan to replace the home button to keep touch id but will I also need to replace the home button flex cable? I was unable to find any information about this thank

If you are buying a preassembled screen then you should transfer the home button from the old screen to a new one.

Preassembled screens already have the home button extension cable which is part of the back metal plate for the screen. You plug in the home button which has a cable coming from it into that extension cable. It's self explanatory when you see a preassembled screen.

Only replace the original home button to the new screen will do the job.
