Follow the steps in this guide to replace the home button assembly, including the gasket and cable, in your iPhone 6s.

Please note that only the phone's original home button assembly will be capable of using the Touch ID fingerprint scanner. Installing a new home button will only restore ordinary home button functions, not the Touch ID features.

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.
    • 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 P2 Pentalobe screws on the bottom edge of the iPhone, next to the Lightning connector.

  2. Optionally, apply mild heat to the lower edge of the iPhone using an iOpener or hair dryer for about a minute.

    • Heat softens the adhesive securing the display, making it easier to open.

  3. Opening the display on the 6s 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.

    • Apply a suction cup to the lower left corner of the display assembly.

    • Take care not to place the suction cup over the home button.

  4. Pull up on the suction cup with firm, constant pressure to create a slight gap between the front panel and rear case. Take your time and apply firm, constant force. The display assembly is a much tighter fit than most devices and is held down with adhesive.

    • If you have any trouble, heat the front of the iPhone using an iOpener, hair dryer, or heat gun until it's slightly too hot to touch. This will help soften the adhesive securing the edges of the display.

  5. There is a notch on the underside of the display, just above the headphone jack. This is the safest place to begin prying the phone open. Place the flat edge of a spudger into the gap between the screen and rear case, directly above the headphone jack.

So... how does this work as far as error 53 goes? I'm currently on ios 9.2, and cracked my home button. It still works, but it bothers me that it's cracked, however I don't really want to brick my phone in the process. Do I need to be on 9.3 before I replace the home button? Or does it not matter anymore? I'm kinda lost as far as that goes. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank You.

So my home button no longer works at all. I'm thinking the problem could be that I replaced my white screen (and home button) with a black screen from ifixit. Everything worked but the home button. Looks silly having a white home button on a black screen but its whatever. It no longer works though. The piece that was glued to the screen that the home button snaps into came unglued too? If that would do anything.. idk.. Any help would be appreciated. I assembled it back the way it was supposed to.

I have same issue. Replace screen from ifixit. And of course swap my home button and now unable to activate touch id. There is something fishy going on here

Pedro Rivera -

so I broke my home button when replacing a cracked glass. installed a new button now the ID touch dont work,. what is the fix?

stolijm - Yanıt

I have read on a few other of these tutorials that Touch ID will no longer work when you replace the original button. It is basically a security thing so that someone can't replace their button on your phone and access your phone. Either way, the home button will work, but bye bye biometrics.
