A lady in my church brought me an Iphone 6 that has Wi-Fi problems. She has no details about the phone because the phone belongs to her daughter and she asked me to take a look and try to fix it.

When I took it to my shop and took the two screws off.




I lifted the screen up to see what lies beneath it. Guess what I saw missing?

Do you see what missing inside that red square? The Wi-Fi antenna was missing. In order to receive a Wi-Fi signal you need an antenna for that.

In order to get to the logic board and install the new antenna, I had to take a lot of screws off. It is very important to mark these screws as you take them off board because they are not the same size. If by any chance the screws got mixed and installed a long screw in a place of the short screw, you will end up damaging the logic board which makes the problem worse.

It is a good procedure to disconnect the battery before doing any repair to any phone.




Once the battery was disconnected and screws were off, I was able to get the logic board off and install the new antenna.

The board is off and you can see where the Wi-Fi antenna supposed to be. Since I repair all kinds of smart phones, I have this antenna available in my shop.

It has four sockets on four edges of the antenna and it has to be plugged on to the board.

Once the antenna was plugged in and the Iphone was put back together.




I was able to connect to the available Wi-Fi sources around me.

When the antenna was missing, I was not able to connect to any Wi-Fi sources but now I can thanks to the new antenna installed.

Mission Accomplished.

    Waleed,
    What happened to the original Antenna?
    Someone was in there before you?

    That is a hard one to figure out, you don't normally expect a part to be physically removed or missing.

    Good find !

      George: It seems like someone was trying to fix something on that phone. it happens a lot here. when they give up on a certain repair, they actually take some parts off and do not bother to put it back.

    I wonder why the Iphone lost its Wifi antenna, was it removed or never had one?
    Did maybe a previous engineer replace the battery or something else and forgot to place back the antenna? If people keep removing important parts from devices they shouldn't have they give repair and the manufacturer of the device a bad name!

      Albert: this phone was sent for no service repair to a shop near by but for some reason the Wifi antenna was missing along with a lot of screws and shields. they do not bother to put everything back together and end up loosing part inside.
