  • it does work. what I did was remove the battery bus from the 6s battery and the 7 battery. then I swapped the bus from the 6s to the 7 and placed it back in the phone. as it recognises the chip as the original, it works perfect. replaced for only $8

  • I can confirm it works! It's been over a year now that I replaced my partners iphone 6s battery with an iphone 7 battery because she used to complained about how her battery will simply drain withint few hours. Actually with the extra juice from the iphone 7 battery, her phone lasts longer than my iphone 7!

  • The battery percentage jumping like that isn’t caused by having a 7 battery in a 6s. The problem is actually on the logic board, called the IC charging chip. The abnormal battery percentage jumping all around is caused by this. It’s not the battery.

  • I really think I should say that you are wrong. First sorry about my English, second read with attention I have done this modification in about 4 6s, i still have two of them and they work Really fine. I know what was the problem in your video: the mod only work when you put the metal bracket up in the battery conector, they don’t share the “exact” conector (6s battery is a liiiiitle bigger and don’t work on 7) The problem that ti I have is with the middle pin of the conector, it shares data with cellphone and it was just a little loose.. I actuali had this problem with an original 6s battery. I think you should make other video trying in the way I just said since it make a big diference In my experience with 6s. Oh, is valid to say that the pins are the exactly the same and the battery has the exactly the same little bord in it, the 0.2V aren’t enough to implicate with the voltage regulators (it acts only counts when the battery is charged at 100%.. when it passes 99 that voltage don’t even count anymore) and you just need to bend the battery cable a little bit.. don’t make any difference in space inside the fone, the 7 battery it’s just a bit fat but not enough to touch in the back of the display assembly. Continue with the awesome job and keep taking care about your nice collection. A big thumb up from a fan in Brazil :)

    Hasni RayaneHasni RayaneÅr sedan
  • If You Change the battery You have to charge it fully and then draining it complettely because the phone has to monitor the HEALT to determine it! 0.1V is not a difference. The batteries are empty at 2.7V 600mAh output and are charged at 4.2-4.4V and the maximum output should be around 1500mAh while discharging! ... Also the Phone can run on 5V because the USB port has to deliver 4.9-5.1V (on PC 500mAh min.). Also some phones can ouput 5V by some coils that can convert the 3.7V(this is the average, not minimum) 1500mAh to 5V 1100mAh! Please dont upload stupid videos what YOU THINK is correct. Next time just proove Your knowledge....

  • The battery life of modern phones is just silly how they could easily double what they give the user just by making the phone a bit thicker and they won't do it because they have no motivation to do so when the smaller batteries make people more likely to upgrade.

  • I have to share my experience with my 6s. I did it about 4 months ago using a higher capacity baseus battery from aliexpress for iPhone 7 (2200 mah+-). At first, it was kinda scary banding the cable as it is longer and must be done, but I managed to do it without damaging the battery. So far so good, everything works great and battery life is really excellent, (settings still show 100%). Can't really recommend it to everyone as you might damage your phone, but for me, it was well worth the risk :)
