iPhone 6 Plus Touch ID repair

"Failed - Unable to complete Touch ID setup. Please go back and try again."
Touch ID was not working anymore

After replacing the entire display assembly on my iPhone 6 Plus, everything seemed to be okay, except for one thing. The Touch ID sensor was not working for some reason, and it wouldn't respond to my fingerprint touches. The home button itself was working, and I could press it to go back to the home screen or call up the multitasking view.

When I went to the Settings app, Touch ID option was disabled. When I tried to re-enable it, the process immediately failed, showing the above on the screen. Also, the Reachability function that brings the screen area down half way did not work, either. This relied on lightly touching the home button quickly twice, so it must have been recognizing the fingerprint to function.

The bottom connector on the Touch ID cable wasn't in good condition

I remembered that the Touch ID cable on the display assembly's shield plate got weak while applying heat to loosen the adhesive. Thinking that maybe the connector was damaged, I ordered some replacement shield plates with the Touch ID cable on them.

Barring a couple of key components, you can order pretty much any 3rd party replacement parts from China, even for iPhone 6 Plus. The shield plates arrived in the mail in a nicely wrapped package.

Heat dissipation sticker for the shield plate is ready

Now the problem was that the plate was missing a heat dissipation sticker, so it was different from the original. So I found a supplier that sold the stickers and ordered some.

I put the sticker onto the shield plate, and now the replacement part was practically the same as the original. Now I was ready to have it installed on the display assembly.

With the new shield plate & Touch ID cable on the display assembly, I went onto reassembling the phone, hoping that this would fix the Touch ID troubles.

Touch ID is working again

And I was relieved to find out that the replacement fixed the problem nicely. The Touch ID option was automatically re-enabled upon booting, and my old fingerprint data was back as well. Now I could say that everything was back to normal.

Heat dissipation sticker is easily ripped apart

P.S. The heat dissipation sticker is really hard to peel off without getting ripped. If you were thinking of just buying the cable to fix this sort of issue, I would advise against it.

Taking the iPhone 6 Plus display assembly apart Seeing that the glue can no longer cleanly fix the cracked screen, I decided to order a 3rd party replacement display assembly for my iPhone 6 Plus. Currently, they're pretty expensive - easily fetching mor

Hi very helpful info regarding renewing the backplate. Could you recommend a suitable chinese supplier for iphone parts that is good quality & reliable. I am in the UK. Thanks

Wesley on :

I don't have a single supplier that provides all the parts. I compare what's available on AliExpress and order as needed. For an example, the back plate came from this place: http://s.click.aliexpress.com/klk/6uRna2BEy
