This video will show how I replace the Charging port in my own iphone 6. If your phone wont charge, make sure that there is no dust or pocket lent inside the charging port first, Sometimes that is all that is wrong with the phone. Use a thin toothpick or something small to clean it out. Don't damage the little metal pins inside this port.

This video shows you everything you need to know about replacing the charging port on your new iPhone 6. It is a pretty simple process as long as you keep all of your screws organized.
If you ever need to kink your charging cable to one side, and you are sure that the cable is working fine, you might have to replace your charging port! This video shows you how. The charging port is also connected to the mic, and headphone jack, so you replace everything all at the same time.

IMPORTANT: Do try to take out lint with sharp needle first. My charging port had very compressed lint, that looked like plastic. Make some pressure to take it out. Before: the charging cable could not fit in.
Hope this saves someone a work.
I had water damage in my 6 plus I replaced the battery because it was not holding a charge. It began working and when I plugged it into the computer it recognizes it but the screen does not work. I replaced the screen but still no luck. With the charging port working do you think I still need to replace it or would this be some other issue
I used the tools, charging port part, and new battery you suggested. The steps were perfectly clear. My phone is working as expected now. The wire cable was a pain. It seemed too short, so I had to take a several attempts.
Thank you so much for this guide.
Have an iPhone 6s thats stuck in headphone mode, and i tried everything including a factory rest and still nothing, should i attempt to replace the headphone jack to see it that solves the problem, and do you have video to assist in any way?
I followed this video when replacing my headphone jack and everything works except my mic. I have that little black piece in there. Is there anything else that I’m missing??? It works with Siri and on the phone but when I go to record anything it doesn’t work
Thank you very much - I used this to change the charging port on my son's iPhone 6 today and had no problems. The cell phone works fine now and my son (aged 13) thinks dad is really clever (dad points are always well worth the effort!).
putting back the speaker was the hardest part but overall great video. One thing that sucked is one the screws from the vibration motor became stripped even though I was using the screw driver that came with the kit so I could remove it and just placed the wire strip over it.
Hi, I have a 6s Plus and the speaker is awful, I don't really remember it being all that good to begin with. Will replacing it with a new help or is just generally terrible for this model - read mostly negative mixed reviews online?
Best vid out there on this topic. A couple things that helped me that weren't mentioned: I saved the screws and plates in the different compartments of an ice cube tray. I took a drop of Elmer's glue, applied it to the end of the little screwdriver, and it helped the head of the screw to stay attached to the screwdriver. I used the end of a chopstick to press various ribbons and stuff into place. Much, much more time consuming than the 5 minutes claimed on this vid. I needed a very bright light and a magnifying glass to help me, and I have good close-up vision.
My iPhone 6s plus does not show lighting bolt when I plug in charging cable. For sure my charger adapter and cable is good. The phone has about 20% battery so I leave the charging cable over night it charged additional 20% more. I took my phone to Apple store the tech told me my battery is good. Anything you can help me on this ID greatly appreciated.
Great video, many thanks for the upload. Managed to replace my battery and charger port whilst using this vid & works perfectly now. One thing I will say is to remove to screen use an ISclack (about £12 eBay) well worth it & screen pops up easily, I broke my iPhone 5 a few years ago using a single ‘sucker’ trying to wedge it up. After putting it all back together and switching it on the touchscreen wasn’t working and there were lines on the display. If this happens reinserted the displays connectors (they will snap in, just make sure the screen is held up 90 degrees and is the top edge is straight to the top of the phone and they will go in easily) and watch for the screws as they will be in one place and then disappear before your eyes. Total cost for me £15. Thanks again, brilliant vid
Thank you for making this vid. It was very helpful to me and I was able to do this myself as a result. I'm a 65 yr old woman and not very handy or tech savvy so that should tell you how easy it is to follow the tutorial. I would advise the use of a magnifying glass however. Those screws are teeny-tiny!!!
Worked! Great video. I didn't even bother watching it through once before starting, just dove in and paused the video at each step while I worked… took an hour but there were hardly any points through the whole video I had to back up and repeat again to be sure. As others have said the one missing piece was swapping over the microphone part, but that was pretty self-explanatory. Thanks! My phone can once again charge without having to balance the charging cord just right to stay connected. Now that I see how easy it is to swap in a new battery, I'll be doing that soon too, and should get another year out of my phone!
I know this video is old but would anyone be able to help me. I've been trying for the past hour to reattach the small connector (see 3:43). Absolutely stressing my life out trying to reconnect this and before anyone asks, no it's not damaged. Any tips would be appreciated.
BEFORE YOU PUT THE REPLACEMENT PIECE IN:
Check to make sure that the black plastic housings for the microphone and the charging port are not still on the old components. If so, disconnect the wider black plastic housing from the grey plastic of the charging port, then place it back into the phone's frame so that the holes line up for the exterior pentalobe screws. As noted by Stanos79, the black plastic microphone housing is stuck to the old microphone. Remove it and place it on the new microphone using the peel-reveal adhesive. There is a little tab to help you line it up correctly. And don't forget to do the peel-reveal adhesive as you are putting the new ribbon cable and components into their place.
it worked but now i have faint vertical lines on the right half of my screen and the touch screen isnt working on that half. Had trouble plugging in the connector that is in the middle of two other ones. Could it be not connected properly or does something need to be replaced now?
Hey, so the phone wasn't turning on at all and so I thought the charging port was not working because the phone wouldn't turn on even after I unplugged the battery and just used the power source from the wall. I replaced the charging port and the phone still doesn't turn on. Any suggestions?
Hey Brandy2374, so my phone was out for three days, I just recently went back to mess with my phone, taking it apart and putting it back on, did it a few time, then my screen came back on....Not entirely sure what it was but now the only issue that I am having is that my screen be twitching and it won't light up as bright as it use to. The screen is pretty dim, planning on messing with my phone again later this weekend. Bought another replacement screen just in case I am in need of a swap. Thanks for replying to me as well.
Apparently mine is like that now too right after I finished with this video. Did you ever fix yours? I fixed the charger but right after I turned it on, my phone got real hot. I'm afraid I might have short circuit or something. Trying to buy a new screen to replace it and see how that goes.. ugh, one thing after another.
My iphone6 wouldn't charge and eventually the phone died and I can't backup/restore it. I tried to connect it to several different ports and cables etc to no avail. Even after replacing the charger port it won't charge so I don't know what's going on. Anyone have any suggestions?
Thank you so much for the tutorial with the details. I did have an issue when I put everything back, looks like my network connectivity was spotty not working like before and my voice appears to be muffled to others receiving my calls. Any suggestions, could I have damaged something else in the process? Thank you again for the tutorials.
Thanks for the great repair guide. My iPhone is charging again. But some letters on the keyboard now are not working: y,u; g,h; v,b; and the right half of the space key. So a group of letters. Any suggestions on getting these keys to work again? Maybe one of the connectors to the screen is not fully connected? Anyway, that little wire on the loud speaker was a problem. I could not get it to snap into its connector. Felt like maybe whatever it connects to is no longer there. So I just screwed on the battery latch plate on top of it.
Thanks for this video, and to Cutter Johnston for the toothpick recommendation! Saved me much time & $. Amazing what accumulates in that port. Sadly, I did not find any large bills or even loose change.
Ok, this is old but this was the best video for me. It was clear with still shots to point the screws. I was able to pause at each step, everything was clear. Thanks for this tutorial, my phone is charging right now so I guess I'm good. Cheers!
That being said...
I second everyone who says you should try to clean the charging port first. I did it too, many times and it worked like a charm after that (just not this time), but please don't use anything metalic, use a wooden toothpick. The first time, the phone was charging but randomly, I wanted to give it a clean up and used a paperclip... boom! It was just not working at all after that. So be careful with the cleaning guys.
Now yes, the mic housing, I did see it when disassembling and somehow it stayed against the case so I've left it there, I'll see once my phone is on how good it works. Maybe you, Jerry, should put a little extra note on your video at the right moment to tell people about it ;)
question, my phone stopped working and my battery charge stays on and thats it! apple store said it was my port, i dont want to loose my photos! which i did not back up! my bad, doing these changes, like port replacement, battery change, will i lose all my pics and video which are saved on the phone? also do you offer service to fix my issue with my phone or have any recommendation on who can fix it? any help would be great!
LOUD SPEAKER PROBLEMS: I have the same problem with the loud speaker. I have no fixed it yet but i know it is either the new charging port that you installed that is faulty or it was damaged in the install process. I had to take the whole charging port out again because it was postition properly. The part where you lift up to pull the whle thing off ripped a little so i think thats what damaged the speaker. The speaker isnt getting the vorrect connection from the speaker to the two little gold metal things on the actual charging port. So make sure the two little prongs are touching the two little pads and make sure you didnt damage it in the process. I hope this helps.
