I noticed both my pentalobe screws wouldn’t screw in last time. Upon checking the little components that the screws fix into were loose inside. Not a major drama but they also seem to hold the charger cable in place… or at least I’ve noticed cables are loose on my iPhone 6 since then. Is there a part I can buy to fix this issue, does anyone know please?

I have an iPhone 6s plus, but I got a new phone recently so I put my 6s plus in my side table and went back to it a couple of weeks later just to see that the pentalobe screws are missing and the phone will no longer charge, I also realized that when I plug the charger in its a bit loose. There was also nothing wrong with the phone before it worked perfectly fine.
