  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.

    • 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.

    • 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.

  17. 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.

  25. The last step is to push the cracked camera lens out from inside. First, find a tool you prefer and easy to use with effort.                           Then, put your hands where your power will land to protect the rear case from bending.                              Next, push the camera lens with effort.                                Please be careful with the phone and your hand very much. When you place the new camera lens, you will need glue or adhesive to fasten the camera lens as well as the new bottom bracket.

Thank you Sophia, very good guide. I just wanted to add more information to Step 5, 6, 7, and 8.

Step 5 - Disconnect the rear camera from motherboard, gently lift ribbon towards the top. This will help release the thin black tape covering the top left screw holding the bracket. I peel it back just enough to access the screw.

Step 6 - Gently lift the rear camera from the frame avoid touching the camera lens.

I reversed parts of Step 7 and 8.

Step 7 - You will destroy the bracket. The bracket and lens are crimped or pressed together somehow, as stated in the guide. The next step I modified; press out the rest of the broken glass in the lens. Then as in step 8 press the lens from the inside, outward to break the crimp.

Step 8 - Lift out the bracket, it may still be attached.Use heated air to remove the black foam square from the old bracket and reuse for the new bracket.

To repair, I'm still looking for the best way. I carefully used super glue to place the lens and bracket in place.
