iPhone 6 Lightning Charger Port Assembly Replacement

Here is a complete video guide to replacing the lightning connector assembly on an iPhone 6. This replacement fixes problems with the lightning port/connector, charging, syncing or connecting to your computer, the headphone jack and the bottom microphone as they are all part of the same assembly. There is a large range of generic iPhone components available online, but make sure that you buy a good quality replacement as your lightning port will be used on a daily basis for charging. We wouldn’t recommend buying a replacement part which costs less than $5, the typical range for this replacement part is $8-$14.

This is an intermediate repair and you should be familiar with working with small electronics or cellphone repairs before attempting this repair. You’ll also need an iPhone repair toolkit which includes a pentalobe screwdriver in order to remove the screws at the bottom of your iPhone.

We’ve also done a few other iPhone 6 repairs such as replacing the display, replacing the volume and mute button assembly and replacing the battery.

How To Replace Your Lightning Port Assembly

Follow the step by step video guide below to change your lightning charger port assembly.

Make sure you keep all the screws really well organised when removing them so that you know which ones go where, there are a number of different types, sizes and lengths of screws.

It is not necessary to remove your display assembly entirely while replacing this connector assembly but you need to be really careful not to bend or tear the thin ribbon cables which connect the display to your iPhone’s logic board. If you don’t feel comfortable working around these ribbon cables then rather remove the display, there is a link to the video guide to removing your display within the video below.

Good luck with your repairs and let me know how it went in the comments section below.
