If you find your 16GB/32GB iPhone’s storage space is not enough for daily use, you can try this method or ask a skilled phone technician to help you do it. Because sometimes it’s not an appropriate way to delete unnecessary apps, photos/music to solve this issue. This tutorial shows you how to upgrade 16GB iPhone to 128GB through changing the hard disk.
Step 1. Disassemble iPhone.
Step 2. Disassemble all screws. Take out the iPhone’s mainboard. Then take a photo of all components.
Step 3. The front side of the mainboard
Backside of mainboard
Step 4. iPhone 6 plus has a thinner mainboard than iPhone 5s. The black chip in the middle of the mainboard’s backside is called flash memory chip (hard disk as follows).
Step 5. This iPhone uses SKhynix hard disk. Let’s make a comparison between the old 16GB hard disk and new 128GB hard disk.
Step 6. The hard disks of Apple iPhone 6/6 Plus are supplied by SKhynix, Sandisk, Toshiba and etc. In order to expand iPhone’s storage capacity, you need to use a new hard disk to replace the old one.
Someone would like to ask why it’s possible to replace one hard disk while the hard disk, baseband, chip, and fingerprint are closely connected. Of course, you need to replace a set of chips through the traditional method. But now you can replace a simple hard disk with the help of a novel box which is able to read/write hard disk’s IMEI.
Apple will allow the iPhone’s activation if hard disk’s IMEI, iPhone IMEI, fingerprint and CPU match completely. Each hard disk has a unique serial number, so you only need to write the IMEI of the old 16GB hard disk into the new 128GB hard disk.
This is the IMEI box which can read/write iPhone hard disk’s IMEI
Step 7. The works line is also required.
Step 8. Put the new 128GB hard disk into the IMEI box.
Step 9.Electrify IMEI box.
Step 10.Open the read/write software platform.
Step 11.Write the IMEI(Settings→General→About→IMEI) of the 16GB hard disk into the new 128GB hard disk. Herein, the whole process of upgrading iPhone’s storage space is half complete.
Implant tin onto the new 128GB hard disk. Then put it aside after this step completed.
Step 12.iPhone’s mainboard.
Step 13. Use the hot wind to help remove the original glue around the 16GB hard disk.
Step 14.After removing the glue, please keep using hot wind to heat the 16GB hard disk.
Step 15. When the time is up, please pry off the 16GB hard disk.
Step 16. After taking out the 16GB hard disk, you need to go on handling the mainboard after it becomes cool. Then Install the 128GB hard disk. Put this new hard disk(implanted with tin) onto the corresponding position. Use hot wind to heat it till it’s soldered steadily.
Step 17. After the hard disk is replaced, you need to use 3uTools or iTunes to flash iPhone in order to activate it normally. (Here, flashing in DFU mode is suggested.)
Step 18. Now the whole process of upgrading iPhone’s 16GB storage space to 128GB is completed! Also, you can use this method to upgrade the storage space of other iDevices, for example, iPhone 4s, 5, 5c, 6, 6s, 6s plus, iPad and etc.
