There are number of ways to repair Apple iPhone 6 Home Button. Some of them are easy and some are very complicated. Cell Phone Parts Canada Team going to provide you easy steps that, How to Repair iPhone 6 Home Button. The steps are as follows.
First of all you have to simply press the iPhone power button until you see Slide to Power off. Make it sure that your iPhone 6 is turned off, then proceed to the next step.
There are two security screws on the sides of charging port at bottom that secure the screen to the frame. Use your 5-point security screwdriver to remove screws, then proceed to the next step.
Place your suction cup slightly above the Home button assembly and secure it to the screen, then proceed to the next step.
Holding the iPhone in place with one hand, gently pull upwards on the suction cup until you free the bottom of the screen but do NOT pull up all the way at this point as a cable running to the Touch ID sensor is still connected. You only want to separate the screen about an inch at this point.
Now that you have a clear view of the cables, use the pointed edge of your spudger tool in order to carefully remove the metal shield covering the Touch ID cable.
Make sure you don’t lose the metal guard that covers the Touch ID connector. Use the pointed edge of your spudger tool in order to disconnect Touch ID. Now you can swing the display up more to see where it is connected to the board. Remove the four screws holding down the shield that covers the display cables. Use your screwdriver.
Once all four screws are removed, carefully remove the shield. Now use a spudger tool in order to remove the three cables. You’ll need to remove the two off to the far right in order to reveal the third and final cable, which sits below them.
The display assembly should now be free from the body of the phone. Go ahead and set everything but the display assembly aside now. Now replace the Home button flex
Now, remove the top right screw holding the iPhone Touch ID cable in place using your screwdriver. There is a tiny metal guard underneath, make sure you hold it in place so the cable doesn’t spin or tear underneath it. Also make note of the orientation of this guard as you’ll need to replace it again during re-assembly.
Once you have gotten the top screw out and set that and the guard aside, you can fold back part of the Touch ID cable in order to remove the two screws holding in the shield that sits above the iPhone Home button. Again, use screwdriver.
Now remove the metal shield and set it aside. Lastly, very safely use spudger tool to start prying up the Home button assembly which is held in with a bit of adhesive. Be careful doing this as it’s easy to tear cables that run to the Touch ID sensor.
Once you’ve broken all the adhesive under the Home button gasket, the entire Home button assembly should lift out of the screen assembly, Touch ID still attached. If you’re having issues removing the gasket, try heating up the button slightly to break the adhesive.
Now simply swap the new Home button flex in the old one’s place. If you ordered the parts I’ve recommended above from CellPhoneParts Canada, the home button is already in place. If you ordered from elsewhere and got only a flex, you’ll have to transfer the Home button and gasket over to the new flex. Just be careful not to tear the gasket while doing this. Now in the next step, process of replace the display assembly is showing
Reconnect the three cables, starting with the cable to the far left, which sits underneath the other two and Replace the shield using the four screws.
Re-connect the Touch ID cable to the logic board. The easiest tool to help you do this is the pointed end of the spudger tool and Replace the Touch ID shield that sits over the cable.
Carefully line up the top of the display into the top of the frame. Snap down the display until it clicks into place. Use 5-point security screwdriver to replace the two dock connector screws that sit on either side of the dock.
