iPhone 6 Touch ID not working after screen replacment
So I just replaced the original screen which was cracked on my iPhone 6 against a new one which is not an original Apple screen, I used the old home button which belongs to this phone, but I still get the Touch ID not working error. I did the screen replacement myself.
Shouldn’t the Touch ID work as long as you use the original home button that came with the iPhone 6, meaning the home button and motherboard that belongs together, at least on such an old phone as an iPhone 6?
I thought that only if you use a totally new home button that doesn´t “match” the motherboard then the Touch ID will not work?
Every time I start up the iPhone 6 I get an error message saying that the Touch ID is not working or something along those lines, and when I go into settings and try to turn on the Touch ID function I get an error message.
The iPhone 6 has iOS 10.1.1 if that makes any difference, and I would not like to try to update to the latest 11.4.1 or restore the phone unless I know for sure that that will fix the Touch ID.
Is there any way to fix this myself (without going to Apple and put a lot of money on such an old phone), or is it totally impossible and I should just forget about the Touch ID function?
Is dit een goede vraag?
