Few things will void your warranty faster than disassembling your iPhone 6 yourself, but sometimes an iPhone owner’s gotta do what an iPhone owner’s gotta do. When something goes wrong with a physical component in your iPhone, your best bet is always to call Apple or make a Genius Bar appointment at your local Apple Store. For savvy people with a technical background who are used to working with their hands, however, sometimes they can investigate or even repair some minor issues themselves.

DON’T MISS: I just added wireless charging to my iPhone 6 in 10 seconds, and it cost less than $20

For fearless iPhone owners unafraid of voiding their warranties or doing irreversible damage to their devices, smartphone component seller ETrade Supply has put together a nice quick guide to disassembling your iPhone 6 yourself.

The guide shows you all of the tools you’ll need along the way — thankfully there aren’t that many — and it includes photos of each step so you can ensure you’re on the proper path.

Again, this is not something that should be attempted by just anyone. Even though the guide does a good job of walking you through the process, one wrong move could end up being disastrous. If you’re comfortable working with your hands and you have some experience though, the iPhone 6 disassembly guide is linked down in our source section.
