iPhone-6-repair-01

Need to learn how to replace your iPhone 6 or 6 Plus’s battery, display, or other components? Our friends over at iFixit, the same ones that regularly tear apart the newest devices to have a look inside, today published its latest iPhone repair guides for the recently released iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

For both devices iFixit has guides on the most common repairs including battery replacement, front panel assembly/display replacement, and getting out those nasty proprietary Pentalobe screws. The iPhone 6 guides can be accessed here, which are quite similar to the almost identical but larger iPhone 6 Plus model here.

All the tutorials walk you through the process and also provide links to purchase any necessary tools you might not have. The battery replacement, for example, requires 13 steps and a handful of tools like a suction cup, tweezers, a screwdriver, and other tools for prying up any glued down or pressure-fit components. iFixit happens to sell its own tools for the ones that might be harder to find such as its P2 screwdriver for Apple’s Pentalobe screws

In case you need a closer look inside the devices before starting your repair, you can also access the company’s recent teardown.
