Introduction

Our friends at iExperts in Sydney pulled apart an iPhone 6 while we were working on our iPhone 6 Plus teardown.

Update: iFixit has conducted a full-blown in-house analysis with more photos and detail.

After removing the familiar two Pentalobe screws we use a suction cup to carefully lift up the screen to give us enough space to run a plastic tool down the edges to release the screen clips

  • Unlike the 5s, The 6 Touch ID cable is now routed up the back of the screen, so we don't have to worry about accidentally ripping the touch ID cable.

The screen connectors are covered by a metal plate, similar to the previous models. This plate is held by 5 screws this time.

The battery is very well stuck in. With a bit of heat and a little deformation of the battery, we were able to get it out. (There's probably a pull tab to remove the battery, but we didn't find it.) The battery is rated at 3.82V, 6.91Whr.

Removing the logic board requires the removal of many screws.

  • Fortunately for DIYers, Apple have placed the chips away from most of the screws so there is less risk of tool slip damage.

The vibration motor is now inside a metal case!

Is this a linear oscillation vibrator like the 4S? Or the more standard type found in the 5/5s?

The iPhone 6 display assembly. It's thinner than the iPhone 5s/5c/5 screen. The Touch ID Cable runs from the home switch to the top of the screen, adding a 4th connector at the top. The Touch ID Cable runs from the home switch to the top of the screen, adding a 4th connector at the top.

After the usual painful desoldering of the shielding, we have the logic board in all its naked glory. Analysis to follow with iFixit's full teardown. Analysis to follow with iFixit's full teardown.

Somewhere in the teardown around the stage of the antenna area, this small piece came out and I don't know where from. Anyone know what this is?? It says, "00095-A" with a small box thing at the end of the character string. Thanks so much in advance!

Any luck with finding the location of that small piece? Same thing happened here and I am trying to identify where it goes. My piece is same but with 1-00095-A 334 for the number. Thanks!

if that link doesn't work or you cant tell from looking where the part fits in then look at the iphone 6 power button tutorial which has all the steps to get to the part properly since it has to be removed to get to the power button.

Hope that helps.

I have tried every possible location for that small piece with a character"00095-A" but found no place to fit in that piece. Maybe its just an extra part coz the phone itself is working fine. Anyone with better knowledge about it??????
