Use this guide to replace a broken speaker in your iPhone 6.

This guide instructs you to remove the front panel assembly; this is intended to prevent accidental damage to the display cables while you work. If you feel comfortable supporting the display carefully while removing the speaker from the iPhone, you can skip the display removal and go directly to the speaker removal steps.

  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.

      • 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.

    • Peel the two suction cups off your iPhone.

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

      • 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.

  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.

  10. 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.

Hi guys, I'm about to start this process. My question is, do I need to remove the screen before changing the speaker? Is there any reason why I should do that? Or can I just live the phone in 90 degrees, as shown on step 9? To sum up, can I just jump from step 13 to step 20? Thanks!

I'm wondering the same thing. Why does the screen need to come off? I have no problem doing it but seems like a good bit of work that is not needed for just replacing the speaker.

Fully detaching the display is not necessary. If it's properly supported so that there's no strain on the display cables, you can skip straight to removing the speaker.

Jeff Suovanen -

After replacing my speaker when I turn my phone on the audio sounds distorted and if I turn the volume up too high instead of increasing the volume the phone will power off. Any ideas?
