Follow the steps in this guide to replace the Home Button Assembly, including the gasket and cable, in your iPhone 6s Plus. Note that home buttons are paired with their respective logic board, so Touch ID will no longer work after you replace the Home Button Assembly.

You can also use this guide to replace the home button bracket.

  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.

    • 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.

I swear a night time operation for a home button transfer was not easy! But... I pulled it off!

SerJay - 답글

Which part is difficult?

yinliangdl -

The only problem I experienced was that you have to re-use the black gasket around the home button. It was tricky to have to place it on the new home button, but I got it after a few tries.

Noah Donovan - 답글

can i still use the finger print scanner after changing the home button?

Ej Villar - 답글

No, the fingerprint scanner and logic board are paired during their manufacturing so if the original scanner is destroyed, you will never have Touch ID again. But you should regain the functionality of the button.
