Введение

Use this guide to bring life back to your iPhone 6s Plus with a new battery. If your battery is swollen, take appropriate precautions.

This guide instructs you to detach the front panel assembly; this is intended to prevent damage to the display cables. If you feel comfortable supporting the display carefully while peeling the battery out of the iPhone, you can skip the display removal and go directly to the battery removal steps.

This guide also instructs you to remove the Taptic Engine. This procedure is optional but recommended to assist removing the battery's adhesive.

For optimal performance, after completing this guide, calibrate your newly installed battery: Charge it to 100% and keep charging it for at least two more hours. Then use your iPhone until it shuts off due to low battery. Finally, charge it uninterrupted to 100%.

You can also use this guide to replace the battery connector bracket.

  1. iPhone 6s Plus Battery Replacement, Pentalobe Screws: step 1, image 1 of 1
    • 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. iPhone 6s Plus Battery Replacement, Opening Procedure: step 2, image 1 of 1
    • 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. iPhone 6s Plus Battery Replacement: step 3, image 1 of 1
    • 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.

    • If your display is badly cracked, covering it with a layer of clear packing tape may allow the suction cup to adhere. Alternatively, very strong tape may be used instead of the suction cup. If all else fails, you can superglue the suction cup to the broken screen.

  4. iPhone 6s Plus Battery Replacement: step 4, image 1 of 2 iPhone 6s Plus Battery Replacement: step 4, image 2 of 2
    • 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.

    • The safest place to pry from is the notch in the front panel above the headphone jack.

    • While still maintaining pressure on the suction cup, insert the flat tip of a spudger into the gap, directly above the headphone jack.

  6. iPhone 6s Plus Battery Replacement: step 6, image 1 of 2 iPhone 6s Plus Battery Replacement: step 6, image 2 of 2
    • Twist the spudger to widen the gap between the front panel and the rear case.

    • Insert the flat tip of the spudger under the right edge of the display.

    • Slide the spudger up the right side.

  10. iPhone 6s Plus Battery Replacement: step 10, image 1 of 2 iPhone 6s Plus Battery Replacement: step 10, image 2 of 2
    • Use a plastic opening tool to hold down the rear case while pulling up the suction cup to open the phone.

    • Do not remove the display completely, or you will damage the data cables connecting the display near the top edge of the iPhone.

  11. iPhone 6s Plus Battery Replacement: step 11, image 1 of 2 iPhone 6s Plus Battery Replacement: step 11, image 2 of 2
    • Pull up on the small nub on the suction cup to remove it from the display.

    • 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.

  13. iPhone 6s Plus Battery Replacement: step 14, image 1 of 2 iPhone 6s Plus Battery Replacement: step 14, image 2 of 2
    • Remove the battery connector bracket.

    • Bend the connector back to ensure it doesn't make contact and power the iPhone on while you're working on it.

  16. iPhone 6s Plus Battery Replacement, Display Assembly: step 17, image 1 of 1
    • Remove the following Phillips screws:

    • Three 1.3 mm screws

    • One 1.6 mm screw

    • One 3.0 mm screw

    • During reassembly, it's critical to place this 3.0 mm screw in the top-right corner of the bracket. Placing it anywhere else may damage the logic board.

  17. iPhone 6s Plus Battery Replacement: step 18, image 1 of 2 iPhone 6s Plus Battery Replacement: step 18, image 2 of 2
    • Remove the display cable bracket.

  18. iPhone 6s Plus Battery Replacement: step 19, image 1 of 2 iPhone 6s Plus Battery Replacement: step 19, image 2 of 2
    • Be careful to only pry up on the connector itself and not the socket on the logic board.

    • Use a plastic opening tool to disconnect the front-facing camera and sensor cable connector.

  19. iPhone 6s Plus Battery Replacement: step 20, image 1 of 2 iPhone 6s Plus Battery Replacement: step 20, image 2 of 2
    • Use a plastic opening tool to disconnect the digitizer cable by prying it straight up from its socket on the logic board.

    • 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.

  20. iPhone 6s Plus Battery Replacement: step 21, image 1 of 2 iPhone 6s Plus Battery Replacement: step 21, image 2 of 2
    • Make sure the battery is disconnected before you disconnect or reconnect the cable in this step.

    • Disconnect the home button/fingerprint sensor cable by prying it straight up from its socket on the logic board.

  27. iPhone 6s Plus Battery Replacement, Remove the stretch-release adhesive: step 28, image 1 of 2 iPhone 6s Plus Battery Replacement, Remove the stretch-release adhesive: step 28, image 2 of 2
    • Use tweezers, or your fingers, to peel up the black pull tab on one of the adhesive strips.

    • Take care not to puncture or bend the battery with your tool—a punctured or bent battery may leak dangerous chemicals or cause a fire.

  28. iPhone 6s Plus Battery Replacement: step 29, image 1 of 3 iPhone 6s Plus Battery Replacement: step 29, image 2 of 3 iPhone 6s Plus Battery Replacement: step 29, image 3 of 3
    • Pull the strip out slowly and steadily at a low angle. Give it plenty of time to stretch and un-stick from under the battery.

    • If the adhesive strip breaks off, try to retrieve it using your fingers or blunt tweezers, and continue pulling—but don't pry under the battery.

    • You can optionally wrap the pull-tabs around a spudger to make it easier to pull out the adhesive strip.

    • Repeat the process for the remaining stretch release adhesive strips.

    • If the adhesive breaks off underneath the battery and can't be retrieved, continue with the next step.

    • If you're still having trouble removing the battery, apply a few drops of high concentration (90% or higher) isopropyl alcohol under the edge of the battery in the area of the broken adhesive strip(s).

    • Tilt the phone up so the isopropyl alcohol can flow toward the adhesive strip.

    • Hold for 1–2 minutes to allow the isopropyl alcohol to weaken the adhesive.

    • Use an opening pick or the flat end of a spudger to slowly pry up the battery.

  30. iPhone 6s Plus Battery Replacement: step 31, image 1 of 1
    • Remove the battery.

    • If your replacement battery came in a plastic sleeve, remove the sleeve before installation by pulling it away from the the ribbon cable.

    • If there's any alcohol solution remaining in the phone, carefully wipe it off or allow it to air dry before installing your new battery.

    • Before you adhere the replacement battery, temporarily reconnect the battery connector to the logic board socket. This ensures that the battery is properly aligned in its recess.

    • Adhere the battery, disconnect it, and continue reassembling your device.

    • If your new battery doesn’t have adhesive preinstalled, refer to this guide to replace the adhesive strips.

    • Perform a hard reset after reassembly. This can prevent several issues and simplify troubleshooting.

Most common on IPhone 6s/6 repair jobs is this battery replacement. Great tutorial!

Raymond Amansec - Ответить

so few comments on this one?!

has any/many done this without the adhesive strips.. and was it ok?

sarah - Ответить

If you mean the battery adhesive strips, sure—you can put a piece of double-sided tape down the back of the battery, and it probably won't move anywhere. There's not much room for the battery to move anyway. Use the adhesive strips if you want to do it right—but, if you're in a bind and you just need the phone working, you can skip the strips. And you can always open the phone back up and add the adhesive strips later.

If you mean the adhesive gasket around the display, the answer is pretty much the same—It's better to have it, but it doesn't hurt anything to put the phone back together without it.
