Introduzione

Follow the steps in this guide to replace the top left antenna in your iPhone 6s Plus.

  1. iPhone 6s Plus Top Left Wi-Fi Antenna Replacement, Pentalobe Screws: passo 1, immagine 1 di 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 Top Left Wi-Fi Antenna Replacement, Opening Procedure: passo 2, immagine 1 di 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 Top Left Wi-Fi Antenna Replacement: passo 3, immagine 1 di 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 Top Left Wi-Fi Antenna Replacement: passo 4, immagine 1 di 2 iPhone 6s Plus Top Left Wi-Fi Antenna Replacement: passo 4, immagine 2 di 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 Top Left Wi-Fi Antenna Replacement: passo 6, immagine 1 di 2 iPhone 6s Plus Top Left Wi-Fi Antenna Replacement: passo 6, immagine 2 di 2
    • Twist the spudger to widen the gap between the front panel and the rear case.

    • While firmly pulling up on the suction cup, slide the edge of the spudger under the bottom left corner of the display.

  8. iPhone 6s Plus Top Left Wi-Fi Antenna Replacement: passo 8, immagine 1 di 2 iPhone 6s Plus Top Left Wi-Fi Antenna Replacement: passo 8, immagine 2 di 2
    • Slide the tip of the spudger up the left side of the phone, 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 Top Left Wi-Fi Antenna Replacement: passo 10, immagine 1 di 2 iPhone 6s Plus Top Left Wi-Fi Antenna Replacement: passo 10, immagine 2 di 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 Top Left Wi-Fi Antenna Replacement: passo 11, immagine 1 di 2 iPhone 6s Plus Top Left Wi-Fi Antenna Replacement: passo 11, immagine 2 di 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 Top Left Wi-Fi Antenna Replacement: passo 14, immagine 1 di 2 iPhone 6s Plus Top Left Wi-Fi Antenna Replacement: passo 14, immagine 2 di 2
    • Remove the battery connector bracket.

    • Use a spudger or a clean fingernail to disconnect the battery connector by prying it straight up off the logic board.

    • 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 Top Left Wi-Fi Antenna Replacement, Display Assembly: passo 17, immagine 1 di 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 Top Left Wi-Fi Antenna Replacement: passo 18, immagine 1 di 2 iPhone 6s Plus Top Left Wi-Fi Antenna Replacement: passo 18, immagine 2 di 2
    • Remove the display cable bracket.

  18. iPhone 6s Plus Top Left Wi-Fi Antenna Replacement: passo 19, immagine 1 di 2 iPhone 6s Plus Top Left Wi-Fi Antenna Replacement: passo 19, immagine 2 di 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 Top Left Wi-Fi Antenna Replacement: passo 20, immagine 1 di 2 iPhone 6s Plus Top Left Wi-Fi Antenna Replacement: passo 20, immagine 2 di 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 Top Left Wi-Fi Antenna Replacement: passo 21, immagine 1 di 2 iPhone 6s Plus Top Left Wi-Fi Antenna Replacement: passo 21, immagine 2 di 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.

    • Three 2.7 mm screws

    • One 1.3 mm screw

    • One 1.7 mm screw

    • Use the pointed end of a spudger to gently nudge the top left antenna cable out from under the rightmost clip on the logic board.

    • Continue derouting the top left antenna cable from the second and third logic board clips.

    • Do not pull the cable out of the center clip, as it will tear easily. Instead, use the pointed tip of a spudger to gently pry it from the clip.

    • In order for the cable to reach its socket on the logic board, you must route it between the logic board and the audio control cable bracket, and underneath the audio control flex cable.

  29. iPhone 6s Plus Top Left Wi-Fi Antenna Replacement: passo 30, immagine 1 di 2 iPhone 6s Plus Top Left Wi-Fi Antenna Replacement: passo 30, immagine 2 di 2
