Follow the steps in this guide to replace the FaceTime camera and sensor assembly flex cable in an iPhone 6s Plus.

  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 3.4 mm Pentalobe screws on either side of the Lightning port.

  2. Optionally, apply mild heat to the lower edge of the iPhone using an iOpener or hair dryer for about a minute.

    • Heat softens the adhesive securing the display, making it easier to open.

  3. Opening the display on the 6s Plus separates a thin strip of adhesive around the perimeter of the display. If you prefer to replace the adhesive, have a set of new adhesive strips ready before you continue. It's possible to complete the repair without replacing the adhesive, and you probably won't notice any difference in functionality.

    • Apply a suction cup to the lower left corner of the display assembly.

  4. Pull up on the suction cup with firm, constant pressure to create a slight gap between the front panel and rear case. Pulling too hard may damage the display assembly. Apply just enough pressure to create a small gap between the display assembly and the rear case.

  12. Gently grasp the display assembly and lift it up to open the phone, using the clips at the top of the front panel as a hinge. 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. Don't open the display more than 90º—it is still connected to the top of the phone by the display, digitizer, and front camera cables which can tear easily.

    • Add a rubber band to keep the display securely in place while you work. This prevents undue strain on the display cables.

    • In a pinch, you can use an unopened canned beverage to support the display.

    • Remove two Phillips screws securing the battery connector bracket to the logic board, of the following lengths:

    • One 2.9 mm screw

    • One 2.3 mm screw

    • Throughout this guide, keep careful track of your screws so that each one goes back where it came from during reassembly. Installing a screw in the wrong place can cause permanent damage.

Hello together

I changed this Kabel now the 6. Time. But the auto-brightness didn't work. When I install the old cable it works (microphone damaged). I try some descriptions of calibration, but it didn't work. Can somebody help me. Thanks.

Best regards from Germany.

Hogen.

It sounds like your ambient light sensor (step 26) is damaged or incorrectly placed. Reinstall the flex cable to ensure the sensor is sitting correctly in its housing. If that does not work, get in touch with your parts supplier and request a replacement.

Hm but I have now the 6th cable! That is not realistic that all cable are broken or?

Also when I only connect the cable (without installing in to the display) it didn't work (for all 6 cable). The original work. It's crazy.

Hogen -

No, it's super unlikely that 6 cables in a row are all broken, but if the original flex cable works while the other 6 do not, the problem is almost certainly in the cable. Maybe order a part from a different distributor and see if you have better luck?
