The Case of the Missing Coaxial Cable

A customer just sadly dropped off his iPhone 6. Long story short, his 16GB iPhone suffered liquid damage that fried the motherboard so he bought a 64GB motherboard and tried to do the swap himself but got overwhelmed about halfway through. To his credit he bagged and marked EVERY screw he removed so it's not a total loss.

However, there's one part which I can't identify, a coaxial cable that's about 4.5" long. It's NOT the cable that plugs into the coaxial hookup next to the battery connector; this cable has coaxial connectors on either end.

I've done a lot of screen and battery swaps and I have no recollection of seeing this cable in an iPhone 6 before. I combed through several of the iPhone 6 repair guides and didn't see it anywhere. Where does it go?

Are you referring to this? That cable is on the underside of the logic board.

Yes, that's the one. Okay, that explains why I never saw it before. :-) Thanks.

Just did. I needed to check the back of the motherboard to verify first. :-)


Haha! Trust but verify...I like it!
