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.

This teardown is not a repair guide. To repair your iPhone 6, use our service manual.

Image 1/1: 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.
  • 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

  • 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.)

  • Removing the logic board requires the removal of many screws.

  • 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?

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!

its the antenna interconnect i believe..

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??????
