Use this guide to replace the front-facing camera and sensor cable including the front-facing camera, microphone and other sensors.

Note that the earpiece speaker is removed in this guide—be sure to save and transfer the earpiece speaker into your replacement cable assembly when you reassemble.

You can also use this guide to replace the following parts:

  1. Before disassembling your iPhone, discharge the battery below 25%. A charged lithium-ion battery can catch fire and/or explode if accidentally punctured.
    • Before disassembling your iPhone, discharge the battery below 25%. A charged lithium-ion battery can catch fire and/or explode if accidentally punctured.

    • Power off your iPhone before beginning disassembly.

    • Remove the two 3.6 mm-long Pentalobe screws next to the Lightning connector.

  2. The next three steps demonstrate using the iSclack, a great tool for safely opening the iPhone 6 that we recommend for anyone doing more than one repair. If you aren't using the iSclack, skip down three steps for an alternate method.

    • If the plastic depth gauge is attached at the center of the iSclack, remove it now—it's not needed for larger phones like the iPhone 6.

    • Close the handle on the iSclack, opening the suction-cup jaws.

  3. Place the bottom of your iPhone in between the suction cups. Position the iSclack's upper suction cup against the display, just above (but not covering) the home button.
    • Place the bottom of your iPhone in between the suction cups.

    • Position the iSclack's upper suction cup against the display, just above (but not covering) the home button.

    • Open the handles to close the jaws of the iSclack. Center the suction cups and press them firmly onto the top and bottom of the iPhone.

  4. Hold onto your iPhone securely and close the handle of the iSclack to separate the suction cups, pulling the front panel up from the rear case. The iSclack is designed to safely open your iPhone just enough to separate the pieces, but not enough to damage the display cables.

    • The iSclack is designed to safely open your iPhone just enough to separate the pieces, but not enough to damage the display cables.

    • Peel the two suction cups off your iPhone.

    • Skip the next three steps and continue on to Step 8.

  5. If you don't have an iSclack, use a single suction cup to lift the front panel:
    • If you don't have an iSclack, use a single suction cup to lift the front panel:

    • Press a suction cup onto the screen, just above the home button.

    • Be sure the cup is pressed securely onto the screen to get a tight seal.

    • If the screen is completely shattered to the point that a suction cup will not stick, use clear packing tape or similar to cover the screen. Sometimes you can even pull up using just the tape without using the suction cup.

  6. While holding the iPhone down with one hand, pull up on the suction cup to slightly separate the front panel assembly from the rear case.
    • While holding the iPhone down with one hand, pull up on the suction cup to slightly separate the front panel assembly from the rear case.

    • Take your time and apply firm, constant force. The display assembly is a much tighter fit than most devices.

    • Using a plastic opening tool, begin to gently pry the rear case down, away from the display assembly, while continuing to pull up with the suction cup.

    • There are several clips holding the front panel assembly to the rear case, so you may need to use a combination of the suction cup and plastic opening tool to free the front panel assembly.

  7. Pull the plastic nub to release the vacuum seal on the suction cup. Remove the suction cup from the display assembly.
    • Pull the plastic nub to release the vacuum seal on the suction cup.

    • Remove the suction cup from the display assembly.

  8. Open the iPhone by swinging the home button end of the front panel assembly away from the rear case, using the top of the phone as a hinge. Several clips along the top edge of the front panel form a partial hinge. During reassembly, align the clips just below the top edge of the rear case. Then, slide the front panel upward until its top edge is flush with that of the rear case.

  9. Open the display to about a 90º angle, and lean it against something to keep it propped up while you're working on the phone. In a pinch, an unopened canned beverage works well for this. Add a rubber band to keep the display securely in place while you work. This prevents undue strain on the display cables.

    • Remove the following Phillips screws from the battery connector bracket:

    • One 2.2 mm screw

    • One 3.2 mm screw

    • During your repair, keep track of each screw and make sure it goes back exactly where it came from to avoid damaging your phone.

    • Use a plastic opening tool to gently pry the battery connector up from its socket on the logic board.

    • Take care to only pry up on the battery connector, and not the socket on the logic board. If you pry up on the logic board socket, you may break the connector entirely.

  13. Remove the following five Phillips screws securing the front panel assembly cable bracket:
    • Remove the following five Phillips screws securing the front panel assembly cable bracket:

    • Three 1.2 mm screws

    • One 1.7 mm screw

    • Use a spudger or a fingernail to disconnect the display data cable connector.

    • When reassembling your phone, the display data cable may pop off its connector. This can result in white lines or a blank screen when powering your phone back on. If that happens, simply reconnect the cable and power cycle your phone. The best way to power cycle your phone is to disconnect and reconnect the battery connector.

  18. Use the flat end of a spudger to disconnect the digitizer cable connector. When reconnecting the digitizer cable, do not press the center of the connector. Press one end of the connector, then press the opposite end. Pressing in the center of the connector can bend the component and cause digitizer damage.

Perfect instructions, only confusion was where the sensor cable went. Would like a clear picture of sensor cable removed, as not to confuse viewer that the sensor cable is attached to the camera piece

I accidentally ordered the cable for the 6S plus. Would it still function or are they pinned differently?

Dave Pratt - Antwoord

I did same mistake on a iphone 6 , i ordered the i6S front camera flex, it worked and im starting to believe it improved my camera ! On my iphone 6

It looks better than before!!

Jorge Fuentes -

We popped a 6s cable into an iPhone 6 to test. Everything fits and the camera does indeed work, although there is no improvement in resolution—the iPhone 6 doesn't seem able to use the extra pixels. We had mixed results with the other components on the cable assembly—the proximity sensor worked, but the ambient light sensor did not. We didn't test the microphone. Your mileage may vary, but I would recommend getting the correct part to avoid any unnecessary headaches. Cheers!
